Yes, but once more points to in lack of qualifications and ability to actually even be a critic for the game. The mechanic is something that can be figured out in the first few levels of the game. All he would have to do is group with someone where such a decision could be made, such as Black Talon or Esseless (sp?). He...didn't. Also, if he didn't know anything about the mechanic then why make a guess about the mechanic under the auspice of being a critic. Honestly even a simple forum search would have revealed the mechanics of what he was discussing. So he didn't even bother to research the game he was saying he was a critic for. He was just talking out of his ass.
Yeah, there is defiantely a Empire leaning here. Honestly, I was still think we could try for the "adult" style that we as E players pride ourselves on maintaining. Perhaps a brothel or house of entertainment. People could be "entertainers", guards for the entertainers, people that work behind the scenes to secure clients. Can also add a more sinister level if we so desire in having the thing be a front of Imperial Intelligence/Dark Council in extracting information and placing agents. I don't know..seems like a good RP basis for the guild anyway.
