 +====== ​ General: Guild Information ======
 +  ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  DuneMUD is populated with ten guilds, each  possessing different ​ powers, ​  
 +  have various advantages and downsides. ​ The following list can  help  you   
 +  choose ​ the  guild  you  will  join.  Note that you can leave most of the   
 +  guilds if you feel their  playing ​ style  does  not  fit your view of the   
 +  world. ​                                                                     ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  House Atreides: ​                                                            
 +  Noble warriors that come from the watery ​ planet ​ Caladan. ​ They  have  a   
 +  variety ​ of Gskills ​ including powerwords, righteous fury and more. Their   
 +  guild armour is the shieldbelt ​ which  protects their entire body, and is   
 +  quite a formidable armour indeed. ​ It can be used to reflect attacks, ​ or   
 +  even stun one's opponent. ​ Being an Atreides warrior you become part of a   
 +  large army and have an entire fleet to assist you.                          ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Fremen: ​                                                                    
 +  They are the masters of the desert and live on the desert planet Arrakis, ​  
 +  the home of the spice Melange. ​ They can ride the gigantic Sandworms, and   
 +  their guild weapon is the crysknife, made from the tooth of ShaiHulud (a   
 +  sandworm), probably the strongest guild weapon ​ in the MUD.   ​Fremen ​ are   
 +  built  for  fighting ​ in  groups, and  not alone. ​ The  more Fremen fight   
 +  together the higher their  Tau  (by  Fremen ​ definition ​ the unity of the   
 +  Fremen ​ community) becomes. ​ Fremen ​ are quite powerful, trained ​ in  the   
 +  Weirding Ways  taught to them by their Atreides allies. ​ They possess the   
 +  power to become extremely offensive ​ or defensive ​ in  their fighting ​ at   
 +  will, which allows them to often end a fight with a powerful opponent ​ in   
 +  one round  of  combat, or remain in combat for hundreds of rounds without ​  
 +  hardly taking damage, ​ wearing their opponents down.  They also have many   
 +  interesting guild skills, and are probably the most newbiefriendly guild   
 +  there is, competing for that status with Atreides only.                     
 +                                                                              ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Bene Gesserit: ​                                                             ​
 +  Those are mysterious witches who come from the forest planet Wallach IX.    ​
 +  Like  the  Fish  Speakers, they are a female only guild and the only male   
 +  who can join is the  Kwisatz ​ Haderach, ​ "​shortening of the way", the one   
 +  who can be in many places at  once.   ​They ​ can  become ​ rather ​ powerful ​  
 +  fighters, ​ but  are  also  welltrained ​ mentally. ​  They can share their   
 +  supreme knowledge and mental training ​ with  players from other guilds by   
 +  giving them Prana or Bindu trains, more commonly ​ known  as  Ptrains ​ and   
 +  Btrains. ​  ​A ​ Ptrain ​ gives  a  temporary ​ boost  to  your  strength ​ and   
 +  dexterity, ​ while  a  Btrain ​ gives  a temporary boost to your wisdom and   
 +  intelligence. ​                                                              
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Fish speakers: ​                                                             ​
 +  They are the army of the God Emperor Leto Atreides II, ruler of the known   
 +  universe. ​ They are a guild of ferocious ​ females, ​ known  to  enjoy  the   
 +  feeling of crushing an opponent with their bare hands, often covered with   
 +  claws. ​ They  have  been  rumored ​ to do awful and gruesome things to the   
 +  corpses of their enemies, and truly enjoy the rush of battle. ​ They have    ​
 +  four Subguilds: ​ Medics, ​ Priests, ​ Scouts ​ and  Warriors. ​  ​One ​ of the   
 +  special things about the guild is that there is  no  limit  to  the  Fish   
 +  Speakers' ​ ability ​ to  improve a skill, so they can continue training it   
 +  forever. ​                                                                   ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Sardaukar: ​                                                                 ​
 +  To  join Sardaukar you have to be over level 25, be a male, powerful, and   
 +  have plenty of spare  solaris. ​  ​However, ​ once  you  get accepted to the   
 +  guild you will be one of the  strongest ​ players ​ and  have  unbelievable ​  
 +  gskills. ​ One of the "​perks"​ in  being a Sardaukar, is that starting from   
 +  a certain guild level, one must always remain a playerkiller, ​ but  their   
 +  power usually more than covers for that.                                    ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Bene Tleilax: ​                                                              
 +  They are a secretive guild, and not much is known about them.  They  come   
 +  from  the  planet ​ Tleilax and are mostly assassins, disguise masters and   
 +  genetic scientists. ​ They can hide  themselves, ​ or even take the form of   
 +  another creature at will.  To join the Bene  Tleilax, ​ a  recruiter ​ must   
 +  accept ​ you and then you must go through a hard period of training to get   
 +  into the actual guild. ​                                                     ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Harkonnen: ​                                                                 ​
 +  The  Harkonnen ​ shock  troopers are the main stay of the Harkonnen army.    ​
 +  The sheer rage and devastation ​ they  wreak  on the battlefield puts fear   
 +  into the hearts of any enemy; the shock troopers are by no  means  cannon ​  
 +  fodder. ​ With  legendary battlerage and survival skills, they can conquer ​  
 +  anything. ​                                                                  
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Bene Gesserit Army:                                                         
 +  The Bene Gesserit Warriors are among  the most brave and honorable forces ​  
 +  in the known universe. As a member of this elite group, you possess ​ many   
 +  powers ​ others ​ can  but  dream  of. You control thought processes beyond ​  
 +  those of the greatest ​ Tleilaxu ​ thinker. ​ Beyond that, your sheer muscle ​  
 +  strength and control creates ​ a  fighting ​ machine ​ unparalleled ​ by  any   
 +  other. ​                                                                     ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  The Ixian Machine Guild: ​                                                   ​
 +  The Ixian Machine Guild (IMG) was established shortly after the Butlerian ​  
 +  Jihad  had  ended. ​ First it was a secret organization comprised of a few   
 +  master builder humans who wanted to  see  a true thinking machine and the   
 +  old tech robots who inherited the old technology from  before ​ the  great   
 +  scattering. ​ The  result: ​ a  new  living ​ machine. ​ A combination of the   
 +  ultimate ​ in   ​artificial ​  ​intelligence ​  ​and ​  ​human ​ brain  imprinting ​  
 +  technology. ​ Dermal ​ plating, ​ enhanced ​ reflexes, ​ thermographic ​ optics ​  
 +  implants and much more. Be warned that joining this  guild  may  lead  to   
 +  being  an  outcast ​ among the weak fleshlings; but as always the Machines ​  
 +  will wage war against them and show them the true way.                      ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Honored Matres: ​                                                            
 +  The Honored Matres ​ are an army of savage female warriors, formed by Fish   
 +  Speakers and Bene Gesserits in  the  Scattering. ​ They embody the best of   
 +  both, their  viciousness ​ matched ​ only  by  the most  ferocious ​ of Fish   
 +  Speakers, ​ their control over  their bodies surpassed only  by  the  most   
 +  skilled of Reverend Mothers. They are known for their nearly supernatural ​  
 +  speed  and reflexes, ​ and  their  superior physical, ​ as well  as  mental ​  
 +  conditioning. ​ They are masters of martial arts, some Matres specializing ​  
 +  in charging their opponents headon, and some more skilled at using their   
 +  enemies'​ power against them. Finally, in addition to their combat prowess ​  
 +  the Honored Matres possess unique skills of  manipulation ​ and seduction, ​  
 +  the likes of which even the Bene Gesserits can barely comprehend. ​          
 +                                                                              ​
