asking for a player, What would the proper guild for a clockmaker/inventor be? Her character is a locksmith but she wanted her character to work out of the shop of a Gnomish Clockmaker. and I thought they’d be in the same guild, but now im not sure. Indeed. The Guilds of Waterdeep provide an inadvertent lesson in the politics of embracing advancing technology, as guilds seek to either stamp out or embrace newly popular things within their own purview (and not that of another guild, or allowing an entire non-guilded market).
