What are clans?
---------------
Clans are adventurer-created and adventurer-run organisations. A clan could be:
   - a Noble House with various titles
   - a chess club with annual dues
   - a death cult
   - a group of performers
   - a family

Clans are highly customisable. Use your imagination when forming them! See the
current list of all clans in HELP CLAN LIST.


Basic clan information
----------------------
Anyone may join a clan, and you may be in up to ten clans. This number may be
increased by purchasing CLAN SLOTS (see HELP 21.4 ADDING CLAN SLOTS). A clan is
led by one individual who is the undisputed leader of the clan. He cannot be
replaced unless he chooses to be.

In order to form a clan, you must go to Clan Headquarters in Delos, and have
500,000 gold in your inventory. You must know what you wish to call your clan
(you can change it later), as well as know what you wish to nickname your clan.
See the next section for more details.


Forming a clan
---------------
FORM CLAN NAMED <name1> | <alias>

   - The first name can be up to 50 characters long and can be multiple words.

   - The second name can be only 1 word and no longer than 15 characters. It's
     more like an alias, so that, for instance, instead of typing CLANHELP THE
     DIAMANTE FAMILY, adventurers can just do CLANHELP DIAMANTE (if that's what
     the founder called the clan alias).

   - You must separate the clan name and alias with the | character.

   - You must have 500,000 gold in your inventory, and be standing in Clan
     Headquarters, on the isle of Delos. The 500,000 gold will be taken as
     the fee for clan formation.

   - Upon forming the clan, you will automatically be the clan head.


Transferring a clan
-------------------

Clans may be transferred as the owner of the clan sees fit.  The clan newsboard
comes along with it, with all of its existing posts. An immortal or admin will
not clear the board for you either, so please don't ask. It's part of the price
of getting a second-hand clan!
