like the kosher stamp or most union work

and I assume these fairness regulations involve a fee to the guild?

To be fair

The safety regulations are generally (but not always) there for a good reason. Fairness regulations... your mileage may vary.

Sending adventurers into a giant meat grinder to make sausage is a perfectly legitimate business practice!

so an *actually legitimate* adventuring guild? cool.

usually they've a bit of a "racketeering" vibe. even for how this one seemed generically bureaucrat the way they completely controlled all jobs and "We'd better tell the guild" when they found a competition flyer I had just assumed

that wasn't fair to rich

@Shei-kun: There is the level classification and job placement to worry about with bureaucrat. I mean grant it you won't be sending you adventures to fight a dragon with a wooden stick.

But on the other hand they were conned by towns folk and their vampire problem. The guild found it cheaper sending them to get water for a town in drought then sending a mage that could fix it... Even then they were not allowed to deal with a rat in their own home until it mutated into a deadly monster... of course that was only because it hit their rank.

Then of course the paper work, pay diverted to boss... I mean did you see the paper work involved to rescue a friend from a demi god/evil wizard?

Bit of Clarification

Thought I'd jump in since there's some confusion. I actually had a comic explaining what I'm about to say, but we (well, me in this case) scrapped it because it just wasn't funny. Anyway, I.D.A (International Department of Adventure) is actually a government (multi-government) organization that oversees various aspects of adventuring, including health, safety and fairness. Think of them like OSHA or the FDA in the real world. It's separate from the guilds, which are private commercial organization that basically make their money organizing and distributing heroes to various quests that have been posted to them. The guilds however, have to pay close attention to I.D.A.'s regulations or they'll get shut down (which is basically what Rich's job is).

I swear as soon as I find a more organized way, or at least funny way of explaining this I will.
