The World Of Khoras - Civilization

Organizations, Guilds & Societies

An organization is any group of people working together toward a common goal. They may be drawn together by similar interests, political agendas, common professions or civic duty.

Organizations take many forms and include such disparate groups as military units, underworld crime cartels, covert spy networks, spiritual brotherhoods, national committees, city councils, professional guilds and social clubs. They vary greatly in size, wealth and goals. Each has its own internal rules, rank structures, forms of membership and common practices. Many have codes of conduct or stringent oaths of loyalty.

Regardless of motivations, practices or beliefs, all organizations are founded upon one simple truth… there is strength in numbers.
