Guildmaster of Bards
a lesser Officer
What do they do?
Class guild masters of all stripes are responsible for helping people that are new to their class. But many shirk this duty or don't realize that they have it.
What can they do?
Given the chance class guildmaster can make a tremendous difference in the local players experience. Passing out sashes, and Ribbon or writing Level Tests. Generate or make available spell lists. Pass out instruments, or have a Bardic tourney with bard gear for prizes. Discuss loop holes, and what the official ruling on them is, many players have been playing so long that they are acting on their faulty memories more than the rulebook. Like so many things the job is as much or as little as you put into it.
How do I become one?
Guildmasters are voted on at a Kingdom level Althing usually at Coronation. In most places you may only vote if you have played the class in question in the last six months, in some you must be a 'contributing member' to vote.
Don't try to win this title to put a 'feather in your cap' and then do nothing with it. You will be the only one thinking you are hot stuff.
Talk to your GMR and Champion see if you can help them with their duties during their reigns. Ask questions on your kingdom's list, see if there is any area that your class is weak in. When doing demos travel with your Monarch this will usually insure a generally higher turn out, and give you more students.
