Golden Sphinx

Alignment: Lawfully Neutral

Motto: "Collect and profit"  

Location: Ulassai, chosen for its prime location in southern Fiore  and the town's bazaar.

Appearance: Located in the merchant quarter of Ulassai towers a massive gold obelisk that stands over ten stories tall, much larger than all other buildings in the city. Underneath the guild, roughly 4 stories down, lies the guild's vault. It is here that the guild's funds are located, small personal vaults for members of the guild are located, and the stock of goods that the guild manages. The guild's first two floors are dedicated towards a foot court/cafeteria like area with a fully stocked bar. There are multiple different seating options and areas for private conversation. The second floor is where one will find the request boards. Third and forth floor are dedicated to living quarters, boys third floor, girls fourth. Sixth and seventh floor is the guild's library, stocked full of valuable information and lore. The eighth floor is where the meeting hall is located as well as smaller private meeting rooms that members of the guild may use for personal reasons. The ninth floor is the living quarters for the Trinity Council. And the tenth floor is a massive observatory floor that over looks the city, this is used mainly in formal gatherings and events hosted by the guild.

General Abstract of Guild:
A guild that is neutral though upholds a set of codes among themselves and the contracts they are bound to. Golden Sphinx is a Treasure Hunters Guild that is outside of the Magic Council's jurisdiction but falls under the broad umbrella of Merchant Guilds. They will take  any player no matter their character alignment or standing with the Magic Council, though nationally wanted players such as terrorist will only be accepted under rare conditions. The guild is not led by a single master but a council. The guild is composed of three distinct branches.


Overview:
A group of like minded individuals that seek to collect rare artifacts and treasures to either sell or use. The guild is classified as a Treasure Hunters guild and therefore has little to do with the Magic Council but the guidelines of Merchant Guild Association. Guild does not discriminate between dark or light mages, nor methods of how to obtain the treasures, though murder should be seen as a last resort. Members are heavily encouraged to participate in site plot threads. While ranking up is not heavily pressed in this guild they are encouraged to gain strength so that the guild may use its strength as a form of bartering, be it showing their strength to gain a monetary or political upper hand, or hiring out their strength to other guilds, organizations, or private parties. The guild encourages weaker members to team up to help with progress of ranks but also to take on more elaborate adventures and quest together. Members are  heavily encouraged to partake in Site Plot Events; members should help each other out in these events and once other contenders that are not Golden Sphinx members are eliminated may they squabble over the spoils among themselves. There is not a single guild master but a three leader system known as the Trinity Council, each leader holding a different aspect and significance of the guild: Hunters, Merchants, and Rangers. Outside of the Trinity Council there is the positions: The Sentient, The Law, and The Keeper.


The Trinity Council
