Guilds allow a PC to become a 'member' (if both the guild is willing to invite and the PC to accept). Guilds generally are associations of PCs and NPCs often for a particular purpose (such as "operation of a thieves' guild", or "combating the influx of monsters in Vestalla"), and associates will generally act to further Guild goals when given the opportunity to do so. Guilds may affiliate themselves with existing Guilds or Factions, and dissolve such affiliations as desired, but these associations while they exist, can impact the interactions and outlook of other Factions.
Guilds are able to claim Terrirories - and by controlling these Territories can derrive specific benefits from each (often unique benefits). As a consequence of controlling Territories, a Guilds reputation will be enhanced, while loss of Territories under their control can detract from a Guild's reputation too.
Guilds are able to possess and control a Headquarters (HQ) and other satalite properties that they can enhance with equipment and faciltiies to be made available to their own Guild Members.
