21.1 CLANS

What are clans?
Clans are player-created and player-run organizations. A clan could be:
   - a Noble House with various titles
   - a chess club with annual dues
   - a death cult
   - a group of performers

Clans are highly customisable. Use your imagination when forming them!

Basic clan information
Anyone may join a clan, and you may be in up to ten clans. A clan is led by one individual who is the undisputed leader of the clan. He cannot be replaced unless he chooses to be.

In order to form a clan, you must go to Clan Headquarters on the path up Avechna's Peak, and have 500,000 gold in your inventory. You must know what you wish to call your clan (you can change it later), as well as know what you wish to nickname your clan. See the next section for more details.

Forming a clan
FORM CLAN NAMED <alias> <name1>

   - The first name (alias) can be only 1 word and no longer than 15 characters. 
     It's more like an alias, so that, for instance, instead of typing CLANHELP 
     THE DIAMANTE FAMILY, players can just do CLANHELP DIAMANTE (if that's what
     the founder called the clan alias).

   - The second name(name1) can be up to 35 characters long and can be multiple 

   - There will be a confirmation step to ensure you are creating a clan with 
     the desired alias and name.

   - You must have 500,000 gold in your inventory, and be standing in 
     Hall of Clans and Cartels on Avechna's Peak. The 500,000 gold will be 
     taken as the fee for clan formation.

   - Upon forming the clan, you will automatically be the clan head.

Transferring a clan

Clans may be transferred as the owner of the clan sees fit.  The clan news board comes along with it, with all of its existing posts. An immortal or admin will not clear the board for you either, so please don't ask. It's part of the price of getting a second-hand clan!
