Contents

A guild is an association of knights with common goals or interests. A guild can play as a team in Lockdown, or mass-deposit minerals to influence gate construction, or share materials and recipes. Some guilds have no projects at all, but are simply extended friend lists for their members.

Guild membership is not necessary to play Spiral Knights. If a knight belongs to one guild, and wishes to join or start another guild, he must first leave his current guild. By default, a guild may have up to 100 members at a time, but extensions to this limit can be purchased at the Guild Hall.

Not all guilds have official wiki pages — constructing one is up to the guild — but those that do are listed at Category:Guilds.

Rank

Every member of the guild belongs to one of five ranks. The founder of a guild begins at Guild Master rank. Every other newly joined member begins as a Recruit, before being promoted up the ranks, one rank at a time. Each guild sets its own policies for how ranks are earned. Within each rank there is a notion of seniority. For example, if Knight A became Officer before Knight B became Officer, then Knight A has seniority over Knight B.

  • Recruits may use the membership list, guild chat, guild hall, and guild treasury.
  • Members have the same privileges as Recruits and can use the guild hall Member Storage.
  • Veterans have the same privileges as Members and can also use the guild hall Veteran Storage. In addition, Veterans can enter Design Mode but cannot publish their changes.
  • Officers have all of the privileges Veterans and can also use the guild hall Officer Storage. They may also invite knights into the guild, and promote knights to Member, Veteran, and Officer. They may demote or remove lower-ranking knights and Officers of lower seniority. They can enter Design Mode and publish changes therein. Finally, Officers can use officer chat.
  • Guild Masters have the same privileges as Officers, except that Guild Masters may promote knights all the way to Guild Master, and may demote or remove Guild Masters of lower seniority.

Guild Features

Membership List

Your guildmates are listed, with their ranks, in your Social menu, much like your friends. If a guildmate is online, then you can see where he is and often how many people are in his party, and you can join him. If he is offline, then you can see when he was last online.

Guild Chat

The /guild or /g command shares your message with everyone in your guild. For example, if a knight named Equinox types

/guild This is guild chat.

then the chat log shows

Officer Chat

If you are an Officer or Guild Master, then the /officer or /o command shares your message with every Officer and Guild Master in the guild. For example,

/officer This is guild officer chat.

Guild Hall

Each guild has its own guild hall — a private room where guild members can congregate. To enter your guild hall, click on the Social icon. Scroll down to the "Guild" tab, click on the "Guild Options" bar, and select "Enter Guild Hall." To exit the guild hall, walk south to the exit to Haven. Alternatively, click on the Main Menu icon, select "Options" (or use the Esc hotkey), and then use the "Return to Haven" button.

Disbanding Your Guild

A guild is disbanded automatically when it has no members. For example, if the top guild master removes everyone but himself from the guild, and then leaves the guild, then the guild is disbanded.
