Guilds are made up of professional experts in their fields. They are called Masters or master craftsmen. A Master is the 4th highest rank in a guild, only below a grandmaster and the Guildmaster.

Before attaining this rank the Journeyman must travel and work for various masters and on his own. On returning from his travels they must produce a quality piece of work to show their skill. Then, he must meet with a panel of masters to confirm his elevation.

Part of a master's duties included the training of Apprentice, overseeing the work of journeyman, and performing his craft for his own upkeep and the guilds. Some masters are independent of the guild but have to pay guild dues for the right to practice their craft.
