Root Admin Chewett Posted March 24, 2019 Root Admin Report Share Posted March 24, 2019 In this post, guilds refer to alliances with a specific purpose, ignoring whether that purpose is current or not. For reference I will note down my belief of each alliance and their purpose. If I am missing any give me a shout and I will add them is not obvious. Please note that there are three main differences in alliances, Role alliances, standard alliances, guilds. These terms have changed similarly over time, but are possibly important as we change what they mean. Crafters - Alliance of those who had the ability to make items Woodcutters, water dowsers, Fusioneers - Resource Gathering Caretakers - Originally designed to handle the death system and plan how it all should work Treasure Keepers - Designed to distribute and sponser quest rewards Archivists - I would count them a guild, originally at least. So one of the main questions was, how should these leaders be chosen, how should they be reformed if disbanded. Etc. To focus on the resource guilds, my opinion was that really they were created before their time. I dont think you can have good resource based guilds without a use for the resources they protect and gather. So we need to first focus on how those resources are gathered and used in the MD. For those I will talk about their plan in another post. For the other guilds, they should have specific aims. Im not convinced any of them do currently (apart from maybe TK) but we should probably focus in on them and see what we can do to make them useful. Do you think we need guilds in MD to do specific tasks? Do you think the Caretakers should actively take charge of how death should be working? What about the Archivists? What do you think their role should be? All those involved in said alliances, or not, are welcome to give their views here. I want to see what the communtiy thinks so we can move it forward together.
