The guild is awesome so far. Had fun talking with you guys over the weekend in game. The guild ranks are sweet too!

It doesn't happen often in the gaming industry but when it does I'm impressed - they completely revitalized a game and made it better than it initially was. Final Fantasy XIV did it and not Diablo 3 did it. It's the game it should have been and the teams need to be commended.
I killed Pate and then Creighton accused me of being Pate's friend and now I cant get the key from him. Pretty lame. I should just kill Creighton too.
Were you able to loot anything from Pate? Did he drop any items?
I would go with Knight. He starts out with one sword and no shield and you can get the feel of dual wielding early on. If you like it - you can go down that path.
Starter class doesn't really matter all that much in the grand scheme of things. You can build your character however you want, the starting class just decides how you begin your DS life.
If you are new to the series (or not a pro like you said) the shield is going to be key. Playing a high dex build (moving around a lot, dual wielding, etc.) can be very tough. I would save that for a second playthrough if that's your thing. Learn with a shield.
