Guildcraft by Peter Leitch, Chris Maxfield, Mark Somers, and Wes Nicholson
Until now, there has been little reason for adventurers to give guilds a second thought. While often seen as places to find goods and services or hirelings, guilds can form the backdrop for many exciting adventures on many fantasy worlds where power and prominence in shaping nations, cities, and cultures depends on the guilds and money. Much excitement and intrigue can lurk among the shadows and rooms of the guildhalls, as those with secrets and coins quickly learn….
Guilds hold strengths and influences hardly available from dragons’ lairs or the darkest of dungeons. Guildcraft details the powers and privileges of guild membership, as well as new knowledge and details on the underpinnings of your d20 worlds. Adventurers of every class and skill have new opportunities for both enlightenment and profit.

What the Reviewers Say…
“The book does exactly what it was suppose to do, make players think again about joining a guild. Not only that, but it offers a DM a way of giving characters abilities without having to create a prestige class for every organization in their setting.” — Dallas Parsons, d20 Magazine Rack
“The material is full of ideas for use with really any system, although the characters, guild abilities, and game mechanics are based soundly in the d20 System. Take a look and get the player characters enrolled today. 4.5 Stars (out of 5).” — Wayne Tonjes, GamingReport
“Guildcraft is a sourcebook detailing an untouched subject in the d20 arena, amazing but true, and it’s chock full of useful tools.” — Jeff Ibach, Role-Play News
“Your players should enjoy the additions as well, because they’ll have another way of measuring their characters’ progress, other than just counting experience points.” — Kithmaker, Mortality.net
“As I said, this volume fills a need overlooked by previous editions, oh sure we’ve used guilds for a long time, but no one ever went into serious depth on it. This book does, it makes employing guilds easy and not such a chore to insert into a campaign.” — Bruce Boughner, d20 Magazine Rack
