The Guild of Greeters

The Guild of Greeters was not a Guild in D'ni's history, but because of the tremendous popularity of the Guild and its dedication for many years to the restoration effort, the DRC is going to make the Guild of Greeters the fifth initial Guild.

In the future, we hope that the Guild of Greeters will be the first to meet visitors and new explorers and will have the tools to make those experiences as good as they can possibly be. Greeters will be responsible for making the transition from rookie visitor to seasoned explorer as smooth as possible.

About the Guild

If you attempted to describe the whole of D'ni society in a single word, one of the words which would immediately come to mind would be “guilds.” The 18 Major Guilds were the backbone of D'ni: their foundation, their decision making, and their legacy. The structure the guilds provided—making sure that skills and traditions were consistently passed down from generation to generation—is one of the main factors that allowed the D'ni culture to exist, largely unchanged, for nearly 10,000 years in the Cavern.

With the opening of Kirel, the DRC hopes to take the first step toward honoring that legacy. The five Guilds represented in Kirel have been carefully chosen by the DRC to represent five areas which will be important for future restoration. The five Guilds represented here will be the first Guilds to be fully implemented when that day comes. Until then, read about the Guilds, wear a shirt that represents a Guild, and learn what it means to be part of the Guilds. Find those who are interested in the same Guilds, and discuss and imagine what a full Guild system would look like.

We realize that T-shirts and balloons are not anywhere close to the Guild systems of the D'ni. We do not pretend that they are. However, they are a step toward the majestic institutions that once ruled D'ni.
