"It's a scary time, what with the Emperor going away and all," said Heaton Archer, a longtime member of the Hunters Guild. "Maybe Orell Mikin didn't do such a good job, but just about anything beats what we got going on now. We got non-guilders squatting on Guild Row, right outside the Emporium, hawking their wares without paying proper dues. How's that helping the people who put their time, effort and financial well-being into the guilds?"
Regent Oren Nillu is said to be searching for a new Trademaster to replace the departed Orell Mikin, but the process isn't moving fast enough for everyone, it seems.
