11.22 The Role of Guildmaster.
The rank of Guildmaster is not only a great achievement, but is also a role which brings great responsibility. Most guilds will have only one Guildmaster - and therefore the fortunes of that guild will be linked to the actions and reputation of the Master. A gregarious, confident, powerful Guildmaster will attract novices to a guild and enhance the prowess of the existing members. A frivolous, nervous or, most often, uncommunicative Guildmaster can destroy a guild. In Avalon's history, the most popular guilds have always been those led by good, communicative, and well-skilled individuals. If you are considering challenging for the rank of Guildmaster, ensure that you have established a good reputation, and that you have the qualities of leadership which mastery requires. You would be doing your guild a dis-service if you oust a good guildmaster, or vote against a good guildmaster, in favour of one less competent.
