8.6 WHAT IS A GUILD?

A guild is a formal organization of players bound together by an ideology and
class. Along with this generally comes a guild house for the guild members to
relax and study in, as well as a hierarchy within the guild. Examples of
guilds are Indorani, Sentinels, and Paladins. For a list of guilds, type HELP
GUILDS.

A guild has a number of positions associated with it. These are:

Guildmaster
  - The elected head of the guild. Appoints the Patron, Secretary, and Head of
    Novices. (see HELP GUILDMASTER)

Secretary
  - Appointed by the Guildmaster, a Secretary has almost all the powers of a
    Guildmaster. (see HELP SECRETARY)

Head of Novices
  - Appointed by the Guildmaster, the Head of Novices is responsible for
    ensuring that guild novices get taken care of. He or she may and should
    appoint a number of aides to help. (see HELP NOVICEHEAD)

Patron
  - The Patron of the guild is a god, chosen by the Guildmaster. The god's role
    is to guide the Guild, act as the Guild's representative to the Garden, and
    perform a couple functions that only the Patron can perform.
