Sheepay seems to convey that it's quite possible for an OPMI or somebody of another trade than OPMI(L) to go for the language course as a 'phase' in their carrer if they like but it isn't the case that linguists can venture out into the light-side. Is this accurate? Does being a linguist limit your scope/make life less flexible?
Changes have occurred.
My buddies currently employed in the OPMI(L) trade were originally told that they would be able to change tack into the dim side after a return of service as a linguist. Policy appears to have changed, and they are now tied in as linguists for good. No scope to do anything other than languages.
However, my ear to the ground also tells me that further changes are afoot, and that what is currently the OPMI(L) trade is set to expand and evolve in a number of ways. I don't have the ins and outs, but it is set to serve a much wider, more exciting purpose. You heard it here first, kids . . .
