There is something strangely fun about a club fair in an ancient cavern of a bygone civilization :)

And as I wandered the booths, I wondered, 'What will I get to really do for each of these?' Three seconds later, I had an idea, but I'm not sure if even Cyan knows yet.

So I would like to open speculation here:

Eventually, Writers will get to design ages using D'ni script languages (think - The Shakespere programming language).
[spoiler]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shakespeare_(programming_language)[/spoiler]
The Maintainers will bug test them.

The Cartographers will study and help rationalize the story and technology in it.

The Messengers will get the word out on newly written ages.

The Greeters will say 'Hi!' to those that go to the ages (which is far more important than it sounds...)

There's planty more to speculate, but I'm particularly hopeful about the Writer and Cartographer guilds myself! Hopefully, each guild will get their own article of clothing, like the cartographers get hiking gear, the maintainers get the maintainer suit, etc. Uru could become a game that creates worlds for people to explore, developed, maintained, and supported by us! (With the plot content coming from Cyan, of course!)

This tool is what I was hoping would come up, but I didn't know so much work had already gone into it! It's cool to see it's already well underway!

As for the reference to the Shakespeare Language, nothing should ever be written in D'ni Art language, only outputted (totally aesthetic). Blender's good at exporting, and I've been using Radiance a lot lately (lighting physics simulator/renderer), which has the unfortunate feature of being entirely built on text files. The export tool Blender uses to output to Radiance would be analogous. But, yeah, it'd be a pain to build, but also no doubt fun for D'ni Linguists to dabble in.

And a Linguist guild would be cool, assuming the Writers focused on Ages, not history. They would be the ones to make such a translator.
