8.14 CHANGING GUILDS

(See also HELP QUIT)

Quitting or being Kicked out of a Guild
---------------------------------------

Please read everything below before quitting your guild! It is -very- important
that you understand the possible consequences. Note that QUITTING AND BEING
KICKED OUT OF A GUILD ARE TREATED EXACTLY THE SAME.

1.   If you are no longer in a guild but still a member of the city or 
     commune associated with a guild, you will maintain access to all your 
     feats that are associated with the nexus of power of the guild. IF 
     YOU ARE NO LONGER A MEMBER OF THE CITY OR COMMUNE, YOU WILL BE UNABLE 
     TO PERFORM THOSE FEATS TIED TO THE GUILD'S NEXUS. Although it is 
     quite possible to be fully functional without a guild, you will be at 
     a great disadvantage and lose access to many feats if you also quit 
     the city. (And remember, the guildmaster sits on the ruling council 
     so make sure leaving the guild is somewhat amicable.)

2.   QUIT <guildname> will let you quit the guild. You will be asked to 
     confirm that this is what you intend to do. 

     SPECIAL NOTE: Novice freshman (those who have _never_ graduated from 
     novicehood from any guild) will automatically lose their guild skills 
     and get a refund of the approximate number of lessons put into those 
     skills. (See HELP NOVICES.)


Joining a new Guild
-------------------
1.   If you join a new guild, you will be have to FORGET those skills that 
     are incompatible with the new guild. During the process of 
     inguilding, you'll be prompted which skills you will need to FORGET.

2.   You will start as a novice of the guild, regardless of whether you 
     are coming from a guild of the same archetype. 

3.   You will lose lessons when forgetting skills, so it is important you 
     make your decision on a new guild carefully. As a rule of thumb, it 
     is generally less costly to join a guild of the same archetype you 
     are coming from rather than a completely new profession.
