Guilds are Aitan organizations which possess special powers in the land of Lakia. Guildmates may initially band together for purposes of raiding or dungeon exploration, or they may rally around a common cause or set of values. Perhaps they see the profit in pooling their resources to more efficiently acquire the necessary goods for crafting and completing quests. Whatever the reason might be for a guild’s creation, those who take part in the system would do well to recall that guilds are privy to a powerful process in Lakia’s political system whereby a single guild or an alliance of up to four guilds may rise to ultimate supremacy in governing one of the five nations.
Joining a guild is an excellent way to get a leg up in exploring all that Lakia has to offer, and starting a guild (or being appointed guild master of an existing guild) is the first step towards leading an entire nation to glory. Aitan who seek like-minded brethren or who dream of controlling vast armies and financial reserves would be advised to consult the Guild Recruitment forum.
The path to true greatness—and perhaps true infamy—awaits.
Guilds can be created by a party of six Aitan who are all citizens of the same nation and not already members of any guild. To begin this process, approach the Guild Administrator in Regenshein.
The Aitan who speaks to the Guild Administrator and forms the guild becomes the guildmaster, the leader of the guild.
Each guild begins at level one and can have a total of thirty members, but in order to increase the capacity it must attain a higher level. Leveling a guild is a team effort and requires a certain amount of 'guild points', which can be earned by completing guild quests. Members may purchase these quests from the Guild Administrator.
Guilds also have a weekly maintenance fee that is withdrawn from the guild warehouse, failure to pay this fee automatically disbands the guild. Disbanded guilds and guild warehouse items lost to a disband can not be recovered by support.

The guildmaster has authority over all guild processes, including accepting and removing members, assigning certain powers to members, maintaining the guild warehouse, editing guild information, and disbanding the guild.
The guildmaster may control the hierarchy of the guild by assigning members to one of up to four different ranks, each of which can have a different combination of administrative abilities. However, as the guildmaster has the final say, it is essential that this individual be capable and respected (through fear, if not trust) if the guild is to prosper.
The position of guildmaster is also crucial because they have the power to create alliances with up to three other guilds, and it is the guildmaster who has the authority to enter his guild or guild alliance into the weekly Castle Siege. If the guild or guild alliance then manages to succeed in usurping the ruling regime, that guildmaster becomes Lord Marshal—military commander of the nation who also wields immense political and economic power.
