Economic Policy

1. Intra-guild commerce

To ensure that all of our members shops remain profitable regardless of geographic location, a policy of intra-guild commerce will be in place. Members in remote settlements are encouraged to sell their wares to members in higher traffic areas. This policy allows those members to hone their craft wherever they may choose while prospering economically, while simultaneously diversifying the product we offer throughout these "high traffic" areas.

2. Resources

As craftsmen, without resources we have no craft. With the merging of our counties certain logistical issues may be encountered in the vast region we now reside. Not every settlement will have equal access to resources, based primarily on distance. To mitigate this, a supply/support network will be established to guarantee a steady supply of materials to all members. This network will tie-in with the policy of intra-guild commerce.

3. Knowledge

All knowledge is to be shared freely among all members of Journeyman rank and above. This will include any and all techniques, methods, and blueprints, provided that these are learnable.

4. Contracts

Contracts in most cases are to be made on an individual basis. It is recommended that no member accept contracts that they are unable to fulfill, however they may request assistance in the fulfillment of said contract. Members of Master rank and higher may petition the guild to accept guild wide contracts pending a vote within the guild. No member, including the GM, may accept guild wide contracts without a vote among Master rank members or members acting as proxy for them. The GM holds veto power over such votes in the case that the contract in question is not profitable to the guild or its members, with the exception of unanimous approval by the other Masters.
