Guilds in Lochac


For many years, the guilds of Lochac have been a valuable resource for the Arts and Sciences, providing a wealth of knowledge, instruction and fellowship to artisans; and certainly the standards of work and teaching produced by the guilds reflects the vitality of the Kingdom. The following guidelines have been formulated at the request of the Crown, to protect the active role the guilds play in fostering the Arts.

Guilds in Lochac have a long and prosperous tradition of autonomy, guided by the vision and dedication of their officers and the enthusiasm of their members. It is not the intent of these guidelines to infringe in any way upon guild activity, or to add layers of bureaucracy to hinder enjoyment of the arts. Rather, these guidelines aim to embrace and enhance this organic process as far as possible, to expand the opportunities for guild activity, and offer incentive and assistance to those wishing to form new guilds. The Kingdom Arts and Sciences Minister may be called upon for aid and support of guilds if needed or may step in if a guild seems to be in need of aid.
