Officers' Quarters: Friendly favors

Every Monday Scott Andrews contributes Officers' Quarters, a column about the ins and outs of guild leadership.

I started off as taking over the healing assignments, which led to my opinions about healing setup/healing trials, which led to partly raid leading and then I got promoted. We're only with 3 leaders (the GM and 2 officers-including me) which I think is enough for our guild, people listen. The tasks get done, communication is good . . .
