I for one, love the draft so far. So many details about life as a Star Trader and Faction citizen have been explained already, and there is still a lot to go! I also can't wait to read more about the new Syndicates.
From what I know, the Guild is the Planetary Guild. The one that enslaved and tried to destroy the Star Traders when the Narvidians had control.
I know that quote too. And that is _all I know_. Always wanted to know what really was going on.
My knowledge is limited, but I believe Cory Trese said that the Guild was one of the two big human powers during the early human Golden Age. They controlled a lot of shipping and planets, with the Star Traders making up the other major power.
Guild science vessels discovered a Narvidian derelict, and used the tech within to learn the secrets of FTL communication among other things.
This led to the Narvidian being able to use the FTL network to start manipulation of the Guild and build more Narvs.
I for one am very curoious about The Event. To those who don't know, "The Event" was a mysterious... event. When The Event happened in the STRPG quadrant, the Templars took up defensive positions around the quadrant, mostly abandoning the task of keeping the factions in line.
