  1. The United Guild Master System

    The United Guild Masters System is designed to allow those who show exceptional world building skill or areas of knowledge to share that skill and knowledge with others. Masters needn't be experts in their area of specialization, but some knowledge is necessary.
    Masters are responsible for making sure there are challenges and workshops and can take apprentices. However, unlike the mentoring system, Masters will get to choose which of the applicant apprentices they wish to take on. Apprentices who show great aptitude in a specific area may also be tapped by that area's Master to become a Student Teacher. Student Teachers not only learn the finer points of world building from their master, they also help teach the master's apprentices and work to enrich the group.

    In the past, there was one master slot open per specialty area. However, in the future, masters may apply for whichever specialty they believe they fit and may choose multiple specialties. It is suggested that, if you plan to take more than three specialties, you simply select the "general" specialty. Be aware that if we start seeing too many resources for one specialty, people with multiple specialties may be asked to write something to due with their secondary or tertiary specialty.

    Those considering applying to be a master should have the following traits:

    -Patience
    -Ability to take on at least one apprentice
    -Ability to perform light monthly and/or weekly duties (workshops, resources, exercises, challenges, apprentice review)
    -Ability to communicate clearly and concisely
    -Some world building/setting crafting experience
