Guilds are basically a group of players with the same interest. Being a guild's member enables you to access guild halls, which can be a secure place against player killers or enemy guild players. Also, guild halls may offer every member a shared storage (chests).

Forming a guild

To be able to form a guild you will need some Shillings in your inventory, you must not be a member of another guild and you need two other players to join your new guild within the next 36 hours. All of these players, including you, need to stay online for 3 more hours (normal guild) or 6 hours (secret guild) until the guild becomes legal. If any of this fails, the guild will disband.

Visit Frular

Frular in The Guildmaster's Hall, located in South Barloque is the guild registrar. He will gladly create a new guild for you. Visit him and use your 'buy' hotkey, or simply write 'buy' into your chat bar. Once the guild has been created, you can manage it using the 'Guild' option in the game client's menu.

On the memberships page you can edit your members and their ranks. Also, you're able to 'vote' for a member to be the new guild master, disband members and hand over your rank to another member.

Alliances

You can define other guilds to be allies of yours or to be enemies. Members of a hostile guild may be attacked while the guild is defined as an enemy. Being a member of an allied guild enables you to use the other guild's Guild Halls, and the other guild may use yours. An alliance is valid if both of the guilds accept the other party as an ally.

Inviting players

The invitation screen let's you choose a player you would want to invite. This player must be in the same room as you, must not have left a guild short before and have at least 30 Hit Points. Only one invite may be done at one time. Once you sent the invite, the new applicant gets an Invitation letter. Once he uses this letter, he joined the guild successfully. The invitation is only valid for 5 minutes.

Guild cost calculation

Frular gadly accepts Shillings from every member to keep the guild up and running. The guild's rent is managed by himself and he will remove the costs each 6 minutes from the account. Calulation of the guild cost is as follows:

Calculation
Base cost (normal guild) 5 - (0.5 * No. of Alliance guilds) + (1 * No. of Enemy guilds)
Base cost (secret guild) 15 - (0.5 * No. of Alliance guilds) + (1 * No. of Enemy guilds)
Overall cost (each 6 minutes) (Guild hall cost per day / 240) + Member count + Base cost
Overall cost per day Overall cost * 240

Example:

  • Guild has 17 members
  • Guild is secret
  • Guild has 2 allies
  • Guild has 1 enemy
  • Guild hall costs 9600 Shillings per day
Calculation Base cost: 15 - (0.5*2) + (1*1) = 17 Shillings
Calculation Overall Cost (per 6 minutes): 9600 / 240 + 17 + 17 = 74 Shillings
Calculation Overall Cost (per day): 74*240 = 17760 Shillings
