Every city is home to a number of guilds, including the Warriors Guild, Thieves Guild, Assassins Guild, Merchants Guild, Mages Guild, Philosophical Guilds, and the various cults.

The campaign should be very dark indeed, with the only good things set in motion by the players, but good deeds should be much harder to accomplish then evil deeds.
