There are a wide variety of styles and concepts for the guilds of Holy Mission. In this primarily medieval environment, there are many standard guilds in place and some unique only to this MUD.
Changing a guild before level 10 does not cost any penalty. Sometimes it takes trying a few guilds out before you find the one that is right for your character. Beyond level 10, a player must first kill themselves down to level 9 before they can change their guild.
Before creating a character, players should read the help files on each race and carefully think of the limitations they may have. Certain races have advantages is certain guilds, like an elven mage or a human jedi. Certain races are not permitted in some of the guilds.

|Thief||The ever-sly and wily thieves guild is present on every decent MUD. The thieves of Holy Mission are a tight knit group that take no prisoners but are kinds to those less fortunate on occasion.|
|Druid||One of the most secretive guilds on Holy Mission, the druid has its 'roots' somewhere among the forests and hills of the southern lands. A oneness with nature is the way of the druid.|

|Mage||The mages are a staple of any decent MUD. The mage guild of HM is situated high atop a mountain for secrecy. Those know them as great helpers in need, including their own guild members. This guild requires an individual with a large I.Q.|
|Bard||Spreading joy and contentment to the populace of Holy Mission is the bard's way of life. However, if angered their 'sissy' voices belay their obvious ability to take care of themselves.|

|Barbarian||No brains are needed to be a barbarian. All a barbarian needs is a weapon that is no simpler than a club to smash through most things. They are plains dwellers and their speech is not exactly eloquent.|
