The Guild is good. Claire is funny and Bladezz is hilarious by the end. Right now I'm stuck on

We'll, I'm a country boy at heart, and I've considered living southeast of the city and
commuting, but I'll have to travel out there before I make that call. The cul-de-sac life makes
me sick to my st...
