*I have started to answer you 4 different times now and backed up each time.
My vague and rather difficult to convey idea is that (1) it will formally
identify those who consider themselves to be a "bard" to others who also
consider themselves to be "bards". (2) it will identify these persons as
"bards" to the larger populace of the kingdom (3) it *might* attract more
support from the larger community for the bardic community (4) it *might*
provide some sort of training or help for those within the bardic
community. *

*Other than perhaps helping me identify someone as a bard from a distance
that I haven't met before, I am not sure what a "college" might do for me in
either the short or the long term.*

*I haven't a clue.*

> Whatever that thing is, why would you want one?

*If it helped people find bards adn learn what bards do and then *use* the
bards in a more period fashion, that might be a "good thing"*
