Guilds

Direct Links

Choose one, choose all!…  Well, choose one please.

Guilds are organizations composed of like-minded individuals to further and protect their interests. They appeared in many different forms but typically offered benefits such as camaraderie and even financial support to members.  Large, powerful guilds could even control an aspect of a city, such as trade in certain goods.

Players may be in one guild at a time, but they are able to change to another after two weeks if the chosen one doesn’t fit their character.
