Clan Governments

There are many different methods for governing a clan: ANARCHY, CO-OP, FAMILY, FELLOWSHIP, GANG, GUILD, MERITOCRACY, PLUTOCRACY, THEOCRACY, and UNION.

Anarchy

The most primitive and purely human of social arrangements. Anyone can join, so there is no acceptance or rejection. Any member can perform any clan function, from moving the clan home to declaring war.

Freeman 1 Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes


All members may CLANLIST Members, can deposit into the clan bank, have access to the clan home (can get items without being accused of stealing), use the clan morgue (if one exists), use CLANTALK, set the CLANMOTD, receive benefits from clan levels, and receive a usable title of their current clan rank. Anarchy cannot tax their members or territories, and only gain experience through the Clan Experience spell gained at clan level 1. Only Anarchies and Meritocracies gain this spell.

Co-Op

The Co-op is run by house mother and father, who can not engage in war or alliance with other clans, tax the members, or order their underlings.

Family

The Family is a clan that only family can join, and is ruled by either a Matron, a Patron, or both. The traditional powers of treasurer and enchanter can be held by any of the adult members of the family, which includes Misters and Mistresses. All other minor powers are held equally by all members, including the cousins, the children, and even the black sheep of the family.

Fellowship

The Fellowship is a clan where all members vote on any and all clan related matters. Interclan relations, membership, elections to office, and clan policy are able to be placed to the vote of the entire membership by any member at any time. For safety, only two powers are reserved to clan offices: the power to withdraw from the clan bank account is given only to the Treasurer, and the power to maintain clan property is given only to the Manager. Soldiers may also be appointed to handle military matters out in the field.

Gang

The traditional Gang is an efficient organization run by a single boss. The boss has all the powers and authority mentioned above, and can assign lieutentants, treasurers, or staff to assist with some menial chores. Gang bosses and lieutenants also have the authority to maintain discipline in the ranks using the ORDER command.

Guild

The Guild is run by several elite members called Guildmasters. These guildmasters reserve many tasks for themselves, though they must often vote amongst themselves on matters affecting the good of the whole clan. The guild is very hierarchical, so that those with rank above the others may use the ORDER command to those below to maintain discipline. They may also assign a treasurer to help them handle money, though like the CLAN, the masters of the guild also reserve that authority as well.

The Senators, like the Guildmasters in a guild, must vote amongst themselves on these matters. All the union members may also vote to elect secretaries to handle clan property, treasurers to take care of money, and sheriffs to take care of military matters. In a Union, there are no members who may use the ORDER command on other members.
