21.1 Clans

What are clans?

Clans are simply generic, 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
   - a family

Clans are highly customizable, and you are encouraged to use your       
imagination when forming them.                                          

Basic clan information

Anyone may join a clan, and you may be in up to ten clans for free. 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 in Esterport, 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.                                                     

Forming a clan

FORM CLAN NAMED <full name> | <alias>

   - The first name can be up to 35 characters long and can be 
     multiple words.

   - The second name 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, you can just
     do CLANHELP DIAMANTE (if that's what the founder called the 
     clan alias).

   - You must separate the clan name and alias with the | character.

   - You must have 500,000 gold in your inventory, and be standing 
     in Clan Headquarters, in the city of Esterport. The 500,000 gold 
     will be taken as the fee for clan formation.

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

Please note that while it's possible to pay someone to transfer control 
of a clan to you, things like old messages in the clan's news board will
remain and will not be cleared automatically.
