Subj: One Week Warning: City Novicehood!

I'm going to pull the trigger and remove guild novicehood this coming week, changing it over to city novicehood. This is your one week warning!

Here is a brief summary of the changes so that you can be prepared:

* Ambassadors are taking over the novice-head role. Be sure your city has an active Ambassador with enough aides to staff the ministry.

* The Guild Administrator, Bureaucrat Thesas, is going to be retired, and replaced with Guild-specific induction NPCs. Players will have to graduate city novicehood to join a guild.

* Mockers: The Mockers will not have automatic induction, but will instead have an NPC that records the names of players interested in the guild, so your guild will need to take extra-special preparations for the change.

* Novices will eventually automatically graduate from city novicehood after enough non-idle playing time if they are not promoted.

* Guildmasters can approach me if they want the guild novice head position removed or renamed.

Penned by my hand on the 1st of Agaeis, in the year 41.
