Future Guild

There has been some talk about the second guild this year and how the the Solthecian church is taking over The Union. I don't think it will happen this year but I believe The Union will split into two guilds - the union and the church. The Union has the most players. Some cutthroats would remain but some distinct others would be the start of a new guild.  It would not be hard to add players from other guilds that could play for the church (reverse Union has been mentioned before). It would just take a card to identify them.

Where did we get to on the issue of the second guild this year? I think for a while we all decided that the two new guilds for season three were the farmers and the church. There didn't seem to be any other guild symbols shown on the S3 rulebook when we saw it in the facebook video, which looked fairly conclusive. But a few people were dropping hints that the church might not be the second guild after all.

Could Steamforged have kept a whole guild secret from us all year and we won't know until we get the rulebook in our hands in a couple of weeks? Could there be boxes of plastic blacksmiths or ratcatchers stacking up somewhere in a warehouse in China?

Seems unlikely. If there was a whole new guild for the season, leaving that guild's logo off the spine of the rule book (where all the other guilds, Farmers included) are featured would be an odd marketing choice.

I think the idea that the Union will split and the Church will break off is fairly plausible. Maybe this season "the Church" will effectively by a team selection choice within the Union. but next season they will be broken off officially.

I was going back in the forum about the second guild this year. I don't really think they will do a second full guild this year. Maybe filling out the Hunters was the extra figures they might do.

I think the Solthecians were supposed to be the second guild but their production was delayed (possibly as a consequence of switching to plastic) so they've just been shoved into Union. I'm not convinced there is a second proper guild this season.

There was mention once of 2 new guilds for Season 3 ... but as all of you have already said it is most unlikely now. 

But was there any mention of what the "old" guild will have (for example in S2 everyone had 1 captain, 1 mascott, 1 Veteran and 1 Player) 

That's a little off topic but I haven't found anything regarding that :P

I did hear from a Pundit near me, that there was one in the words, that the Solethian was kind of a red herring, and that giving the color of the guild icon would give the guild away.

This Is a Theory, Pundits don't know any more than the Public. I think Its strange that the new Guild Symbol Isn't on the cover, my guess It Is the Solthecian since them and Farmers are on the cover but we will know for sure when the book Is out (:
