guilds that are racial based aren't really good RP.

Most Dwarves that go adventuring were considered outcasts by their clan for some reason or another, or at the ver least eccentric.
Halflings are family folk, so they're probably even Crazier if they leave, Gnomes are happy little folk, along with halflings, so they're kinda a mixz between Dwarves and Halflings,

Elves usually adventure to go protect other lands, and humans do what they damn well please...

Guilds that are class based or race based i do not believe last too long, except in the case of the Druids or some other highly known way of doing guildy stuff, as it prettymuch works up to "hey we're all !!! yay!!! ermm.... what do we do now?"

opinions, opinins...

Just look around here, I am quite certain that you will find some guild to your liking, just don't go about races, we usually don't, and there's no racial guild yet(unless those halflings and gnomes got started)

What's wrong with Race based guilds? A common race banding together in a city of many races. I once played on another server and I was in a good Dwarven guild at it was soo fun. Especially with dwarves: There was never a shortage of Ale icon_biggrin.gif

Basically, there is only the problem of racism. It seems wrong to ban people who are not of your race from a society. How would you feel if you were black and there was this really nice group around, but you couldn't join because they don't allow black people? It sucks. That's basically why it's not as good.

Also, all of the other guilds around(except for the scamps) are based around beliefs. And it allows for much better bonding. It makes stuff nicer.

Also, nice avatar, BG2, right?

... I think you're confused, its not like black people and white people. Elves are not a race of thin humans with long ears. Dwarves, halflings, and gnomes are not short versions of humans.
The only decent example of racism, as we think of it, in forgotten realms are the elves and the drow.

It's all about the ale. No other race drinls ale like we dwarves, period. We are also the only race that you can count on using an axe. Dwaves are unique, not just a different skin color. That's where I'm getting.

(Yes, BG2 icon_mrgreen.gif )

After rebirth starts, I might even start up a Dwarven Guild. Just a possibility though, so all you dwarves, chug your ale and ready your axe icon_biggrin.gif

I know what it's like, Malakalam. But still, it's not really a nice thing, now is it?
Anyway, be my guest. But I wouldn't count on my characters support, since he's one for equal rights, everybody's just as important as the rest etc. etc.
He'll probably try to convince you to open up your guild icon_biggrin.gif

By the way, you should change your sig, add this line:

Read "The Hobbit" to see me in action

I probably will make the guild in due time. I think drinking ale is something dwarves should share together icon_mrgreen.gif

That's a good sig idea, thanks. icon_biggrin.gif

All I need now is a name besides: Dwarves' Guild icon_rolleyes.gif

So...........They are not a dwarves guild. Just because they have a lot of dwarves does not make them a dwarven guild. I'm talking about dwarves only drinking ale and slaying beasts with our axes icon_mrgreen.gif

We Dwarves are so cool icon_cool.gif

{For the dwarves, I posted something in the "In-Character" forum, check it out}

Screw the dwarves guild. Not enough dwarves. I rarely ever see my brethren in Eleriina anymore. If you want to join a guild find another icon_razz.gif
