Guilds of the Royal Basin

The guilds of this Nation train the folk that present the thin line between the people of this Royal Basin and frankly, everything else. The history of each guild is a rich, deep and beautiful tapestry with perhaps a few blood stains that have been necessarily left behind as succinct reminders.

The Guilds are a core story telling concept of the game for the area of the Royal Basin; the background, ethos and codes of conduct are only the beginning of their incredible impact into a characters life. They are a conduit into the lifeblood of The Rising of Chaos, its beating narrative heart and even the basic pages which cover the introductory information are littered with plot points and story information.
The guilds follow some key points:

  • Guilds formed to protect the equality of the people of the Royal Basin – They do not respect the ideals that nobility are better than the people and enforce the need to elect nobility to leadership and Monarchy.
  • Guilds are ancient and draw power from the Weave of the Royal Basin and have done since the time of their inception. All guilds are tied to The Hall over Esan River which is a place shrouded in legend but it is known that the Oaths of the guilds were given there and the strength of each guild is found there.
  • New guilds that are formed lack the “ability” to turn out the calibre of individual and rarely last long whereas the Ancient guilds produce peoples whose story is tied to something ancient and fateful although how is, again, lost to history.
  • The words of each guild are somehow tied to the power of the Land and the people, they are so important that whilst it is not legally considered treachery to not know them your loyalty is brought to question for not being able to speak them when asked to
