Kal:
as I was saying
Kal:
This forum is going to provide a platform for all the Guilds to come together and start communicating on a regular basis, which will help open up discussions for a more formal Guilds system.
Kal:
but
Kal:
more importantly,
Kal:
the goal here is to provide explorers with an easy-access point to join groups that directly correlate to their skills to help the Restoration in the same way the DZS is.
Nick White:
Hmm… but what are they joining?
Kal:
a lot of people are bandwagoning the DZS’s succes in getting together with you guys, but they don’t know the first thing about zoology. Or how to take care of a dead goldfish, for that matter.
Kal:
People, Guilds I should say, want the same opprotunities as the DZS. not just for themselves, but to provide explorers with the same sort of access to you guys
Kal:
and when I say ‘access’ I’m not talking going on hunting trips
Nick White:
What are you talking?
Nick White:
The DZS doesn’t really have much.
Kal:
meaning?
Kal:
much to offer you guys?
Nick White:
In fact, the DRC hasn’t really acknowledged them.
Nick White:
I mean we’ve taken Rils on some trips but that’s about it.
Nick White:
Right?
Kal:
Yeah
Nick White:
What do all these groups want?
Kal:
But look at what they’re offering you
Nick White:
I’ll tell you this Kal.
Kal nods his head
Nick White:
Guilds are on the horizon. The DRC wants to bring them back.
Kal:
And open communication between them is a good way to kick-start that, wouldn’t you say?
Nick White:
I’m going to tell you something that you don’t need to spread if you want it to matter.
Kal:
alright…
Nick White:
We need someone to start pushing for those Guilds to start. A voice to the DRC.
Nick White:
Not necessarily a group. A voice.
Nick White:
An expert. Do you know the Guilds well?
Kal points to himself
Nick White:
Well then get on it.
Nick White:
Start pushing for them.
Kal:
I don’t have intimate knowledge of each Guild, but yes, they’re starting to listen.
Nick White:
Start learning everything there is to learn about them and start hounding the DRC to start them.
Nick White:
Sometimes they need a kick.
Kal:
which is what I’m trying to do…
Kal:
look
Nick White:
This won’t happen overnight but it could.
Nick White:
Alright, then consider this a first step.
Nick White:
You talked to me.
Kal:
The Guilds are very unlikely to start forming up and standardizing if they never talk
Nick White:
I’ll pass it along.
Kal:
alright
Nick White:
Cate we’ll probably say “Great, we’ll get to them when we can.”
Nick White:
End of story.
Kal:
which is not what’s going to help…
Nick White:
Alright so this forum thing?
Kal:
yes?
Kal:
it’s already built. me and Earthwiz have it constructed, we just need to start getting it public.
Nick White:
That will help. Do it.
Nick White:
Cool.
Kal:
ok
Nick White:
Alright.
Kal:
sounds good.
Kal:
see,
Kal:
the thing was,
Nick White:
Yes…
Nick White:
You’ve got one minute.
Kal:
it’s so much more likely to get attention when the DRC comes out and says, “we want Guilds”
Nick White:
I’ve got a meeting.
Kal:
understood
Kal:
i mean not so directly
Nick White:
The DRC isn’t saying we want Guilds yet.
Nick White:
Not more than we have.
Kal:
but it’s a consideration, right?
Nick White:
It’s on the list.
Nick White:
A big list.
Kal:
then that’s all people need to hear.
Nick White:
You start pushing it and maybe it’ll move up.
Kal:
if it’s on the list, then interest can move it upwards.
Kal:
exactly
Kal:
the fact that it’s on there will make people look
Nick White:
Here’s what I’m saying. You or you and this guy be “the guys.” We don’t need another group necessarily.
Nick White:
Groups have too much red tape.
Kal:
right
Nick White:
Cool.
Kal:
i’m not trying to form a group. I’m hoping people take the idea and run with it.
Nick White:
We’ll be in touch.
Kal:
sounds good
Nick White:
Seems like good stuff.
Kal:
don’t be late for your meeting.
Nick White:
Do you know Sydney?
Kal:
Sydney who?
Nick White:
Sydney Austin?
Kal:
nope
Nick White:
Alright.
Kal:
he DRC?
Nick White:
Take care.
Nick White:
No…girl.
Kal:
ah… you’re quite the playboy.
Nick White:
We’ll talk soon.
Kal:
lol
Kal:
later
Nick White:
Go with your plan though.
