I'm all for a Blue's Guild. We had one in WoW that turned into a major success later on. My vote is for Tarnished Coast - where I've been playing - as it's the unofficial RP server and I've found the general crowd to be pretty mature and helpful so far - which is usually the case on RP servers. I'll probably be going Ranger first though I haven't settled on a race. I really love Rata Sum for the Asura a lot. Their starting zone is just awesome. I haven't really checked out the elfs so I may go that way. Crafting? Probably cook.
