THE POSITION OF GUILD PATRON - Imperian Online Help
8.5 THE POSITION OF GUILD PATRON
A Guild Patron is a God who has been asked by a guild to watch over them and, if they request, provide guidance to the guild. Further, a guild may need a Patron to protect them from the machinations of Gods of different ideals. The formal choosing of the Guild Patron is the sole province of the guildmaster, though of course the wishes of the guild as a whole shouldn't be ignored by the guildmaster. HELP <guildname> will show you Who the patron for a particular Guild is.
