I think the guild needs to start all over from scratch. The fundamental problems here is not one of insight but one of character. You are correct Scott that the guild leader should have had a heart to heart with the members a long time ago. But the fundamental fact is that the guild members took advantage of the leaders hard work and effort.Let's assume that the guild leaders do fix the problems and get everyone on board and the effort get spread around in the future. Not only is the guild leader going to feel foolish for his own behavior, he's going to come to resent the fact that the guild members didn't step up sooner. This resentment is going to be an acid just eating away at the heart of the guild as he looks back on what might have been. In this case I think it's better to just start over with fresh faces and guild members where there is no history.

You're assuming that he's the resentful type. From the description given, I seriously doubt that. Resentful people don't put up with stuff like that for two years. Maybe two months, maybe. You suggest that the best thing is to start over with fresh faces with "no history". From the sound of the letter, that "history" could be a great thing to work with. Rather than ruin the RL friendships by letting the problem go on, they could work together and overcome the problem, and go on to play together happily and successfully, thanks to said "history". The chances sound good that if the Guild Leader is really as patient and capable as he's been made to sound, and his guild/friends are willing to step up and help him, this can end well.
