Guildmasters are generic. Try it. Trans a warrior into the mage's guild 
and you can practice skills. If you wanted, you could make the spec_procs 
class-specific simply by copying the procedure, renaming it "guild_mage", 
"guild_thief", etc. and just throw in a check to make sure the master is 
the same class as the character.

See doesn't matter because the guildmaster is independant of 
the guard.

Sorry I can't help ya with your second question.

Some people posted here a few weeks back about their "assemble" command. 
Perhaps if they would be willing to share their code with you, you could 
do something similar with your skill. Basically it just involves checking 
a character's inventory for the required items, extracting them, then 
loading the new item into his/her inventory.

Hope this Helps,
