They're more like a background/hobby guilds. Not crafting.

Neither can it work when "crafting" guilds don't really produce anything of value to other players. Gardeners should be able to gather, grow and dry herbs. Alchemists could then produce quality potions, ointments, unguents and what not from them and other stuff. Smiths should be able to craft superb equipment, perhaps even with magical properties thanks to adding alchemical components to the forging process etc. etc.

Inter-dependency, high quality and desired products, actually having to "craft" to be able to do the good stuff. THIS is what crafting in Genesis needs.

Dude, if you make this happen..
Then you become my hero, and i will petition Gorboth for a "Zhar Day"

Much of this was planned, originally. We just lost the coders to make it happen.

suggestion: work on a solution to avoid simple alt-to-alt trading, or else it will be another way to abuse them

Perhaps I could take a look at crafting when I'm done with the thing I'm doing right now. No promises though, I was just expressing my personal feelings on the matter.
Time is precious. Waste it wisely.

I think we should really listen to what Laurel has to say here.... his opinion is never wrong and his ideas are really thought through and insightful.
If something I wrote sounds confusing ... assume you misunderstood it.
