8.4 CHANGING GUILDS

In Aetolia, there are several possible avenues someone can take when    
quitting a guild:                                                       

    - Quitting a guild without class.
    - Quitting a guild with class
    - Quitting a guild as a novice.

When quitting a guild, you should first check to see if you are an      
apprentice in your class or if you have obtained class. Type SCORE and  
see if you "have the class of <class>" or if you are an apprentice in   
that class.                                                             

Quitting a guild without class (Apprentice)
-------------------------------------------

If you quit your guild as an apprentice in your class and are no longer 
a novice then you will automatically lose class when you leave your     
guild, causing you to lose your three guild skills. You will, however,  
get approximately 90% of the lessons you put into the class skills back.
Once you are ready to quit your guild, simply do QUIT <guild name>.     

After quitting your guild you are then free to join another one.

Quitting a guild with class
---------------------------

If you quit your guild and have class in it then you will keep all of   
your skills without any penalty. Quitting a class will result in
a 50% loss of lessons.

Quitting a guild as a novice
----------------------------

If you quit your guild as a novice then you will lose your two guild    
skills, but regain 100% of your lessons spent in those particular       
skills.                                                                 

To summarize:

   - If you quit your guild as a novice, you will lose the two guild
     skills you have, and get back approximately the number of
     lessons you put into them.

   - If you quit your guild without having gained permanency in your
     class (which you get at guild rank 3), you will lose your guild
     skills and get back 90% of the lessons you put into them.

   - If you quit your guild after having reached guild rank 3, your
     skills will be unaffected.

   - If you quit your class and you have reached permanency in it, you
     will lose your guild skills and get half the lessons back.
