The System of Guilds - Imperian Online Help

8.2 The System of Guilds

The Guilds of Imperian are powerful organizations with varying motives. You may only join one Guild and many demand a lifetime of allegiance. While it may be possible to break this oath, the cost is often high.

Guild Structure
A Guild has a formalized structure to it. There are twenty guild levels, differing in name from guild to guild. Furthermore, there can be but one level twenty player in a Guild. This player, known as the Guildmaster, gains prestige and some extra power. It is a mark of respect and all such worthy masters of their skills should be crossed only with great caution. Further, each Guildmaster may appoint secretaries, who have nearly all the powers of the Guildmaster himself.

HELP GUILDS will list the various guilds of Imperian as well as showing you who the Guildmaster (if any) is. HELP <guildname> will show you information on that guild.

Joining a Guild
Once you have found a guild that suits your vision of life here in Imperian, you should seek out a player in that guild and request permission to join. 

Once in a guild, you may see your rank in the guild (recall that there are twenty guild ranks, plus Novice) under your SCORE. HELP GUILDRANK will show you a list of guild ranks below and including yours.

GUILD PRIVILEGES will show you a list of guild-related commands that your guild-rank gives you access to.

Quitting a Guild
If, for some reason, you become dissatisfied with your Guild, you may QUIT <guild name>.
