- Jadwiga 's goal statement is really great. It is in actuality a
mission statement. But that is even more perfect. Short and sweet and
to the point. A statement that would not be easy to ignore or
re-interpret. Oh, yea, I mean the second one. Even though I'm not
clear what an apothecary does, it sounds like they should be included.
Also, Johanna stated that it would be a good idea to make levels. I
agree, most guilds do. After all true medieval guilds had levels. Be
mindful though that these guilds worked sorta like our modern day
unions. The unions also have apprentices and journeyman. In modern
times as well as medieval times, an apprentice was one who was
learning the trade, the journeyman was one who had learned the trade
and could go out an earn a living. The Master is one who has earned a
living for a while now, and is back teaching the trade to the
apprentices as well as journeymen.
My suggestion would be to first define each level keeping in mind the
mission statement, then define how to determine the abilities of
those who might achieve each level.
I agree with Aelfwyne. The levels are there to encourage members to
learn more that they might on their own. And thus should not be made
impossible wether it is because members can't get to important
panels, or by making the requirements impossible to fulfill.
