Societies and Non-Guild Organizations are the political alignments within the Cartel. Members may join a Society, support the political agenda of a Society, or refrain from participating in either. Non-Guild Organizations (NGOs) function as organizations that are in part related to the guild (such as noble Houses or prominent families) but are not strictly part of the guild as a whole. Societies have a direct poticial impact on the guild, while NGOs might not.
- Example Societies
- House Amal
- House Vanschiver
- The Satsui: The Court of Broken Mirrors
- The Steel Corporation
Rules for Non-Guild OrganizationsEdit
To create an NGO, please and use the House Profile (for noble families or human families) located in the
Noble House Creation Guide or the Society Guide on the Ashenfold Cartel forums.
- Please post a copy of the profile in Pending NGOs to be reviewed for Canonization. Please ask a Canon Officer if you have any questions.
- We encourage you to work with Officers in creation of your NGO (if you wish it to become a Society). Once the NGO is canonized you may begin recruiting members for it.
- To convert an NGO into a Society you will need speak with the Canon Officers and then make sure it meets the basic criteria of a Society. Please create a wiki article for your Society once it has been approved. Society websites may be requested by inquiring with a Canon Officer.
