The Guilds of Forgotten Runes

Guilds are functional subgroups within the Cult that collaborate to contribute in unique ways. Through the power of nimble, effective Guilds, the Wizards can combine their affinities for action and create magic for the community.

There are four operational Guilds, which are open to any Wizard holder with the requisite skills:

  • The Art and Lore Guild
  • The Hype Guild
  • The Gathering Guild
  • The Coding Guild

And there are three Guilds for members who own specific Wizards:

  • The Kobald Horde
  • The Sect
  • The Coven

The Operational Guilds

For example, the operational guilds help do things like:

  • Create art and stories for fellow wizards
  • Hire artists for a global, physical street-art (mural) campaign
  • Organize live events (like custom D&D campaigns), irl meetups
  • Build smart contracts and UIs for organizing The Book of Lore, etc.

The Art and Lore Guild helps tell the stories of the Wizards and their world.

The Hype Guild faces outward and tells the others about the Wizards.

The Gathering Guild faces inward and organizes time to bring us together.

The Coding Guild writes the code to make the UI and contracts to interface with the Wizard world.

Guild Member's Principle

A Guild member is a higher level of responsibility than being a Verified Wizard. A Guild member:

  • is helpful to the Wizards around them
  • is a doer, a person of action
  • assumes the best of their fellow Wizard
  • communicates well
  • uses their wisdom in making choices for The Cult
  • takes the lead


The Guilds will be limited to 3 members each to start. In order to let them find their bearings, each Guild will be given a private channel, and they can choose to open it in time.


To qualify for a Guild position, one must be a Verified Wizard. (We may allow unverified collaborators for a time-limited basis when it makes sense, but only Verified Wizards can be full Guild members.)
