I am a journeyman here at Guild Hall. I have the duty of showing new applicants
"the ropes" so to speak. If you follow me I will take you to
the main part of Guild Hall where you will be able to meet many of the
masters of our various guilds represented here. As we walk, you may ask
me questions and I will try to answer them.
