Guild Charter

This document is a Charter (license) for the creation of a new Guild in the Skylands.


Originally, this was not needed, but as the years when by and the islands became more populated governments grew and more laws were created. Included in the paperwork is the reason for a new guild to be created. Some of the information that needs to be included is a list of charter members that will be included (at least 20 are needed), the skills required of the members (this can be altered later), a description of ranks (such as apprentice, journeyman, and master), explanation of the training and curriculum for the different ranks, the due structure and the membership benefits: such as medical, vacation, wages, etc.   Guilds cannot be copied, must be a new type of craft, but can be a specialty from an existing guild. Example: This can include a subsection of the mechanist guild such as propulsion or energy source.
