<-- Lunar Empire or High Guilds

This guild covers the brokering of temporary (or in some cases not so temporary) body servants. These can be prostitutes, body guards and entertainers.

This high guild is one of the loosest in its operation and its policies. Many of these professions also operate in the Lunar empire as independents (body guards), families (travelling circuses) or illegally (prostitutes). The only time these people cross the guild monopoly handed out by the empire is if groups of them travel between cities. Most members enforce these laws socially, and rely on this guild as a means to broker services in new cities.

Unlike some of the guilds this one has no restrictions on who may be a member, they may be of any race, sex, profession, skill set, or even members of other guilds (though most other High Guilds in the Lunar empire require exclussive membership).

Major guild buildings are in; Lunar City, Cognitum City. Cheap and free accommodation is given to members. Employment can often be found thru the guild. Guild members are well respected throughout the Empire.

Body Guards swear a oath to protect the client (in front of the guild). On the death of a Body Guard you must pay 8,000 sp (a years pay) to the body guards family
Armed Slaves are owned by a family and the family is responsable for them and their action.
