Forming a Guild
If you are serious about starting a guild, you will need 100,000 gold. Visit Uther, the Honor Guard (located as Castle Asgard, east of Asgard) and buy the charter deed from him. Now you must find five (5) people who are not in a guild that will sign your charter requesting a guild be made. They may only sign the guild charter once and only one character per account. They do not have to join the guild when it is made. Once you have the signatures, take the charter deed back to Uther, drop it on him and he will give you a guild deed.
- Make sure you put some thought into the guild name. Once the guild stone is created and you resign from the guild or shut it down, the guild stone will disappear and you will not get a guild deed back again. You will have to go through the process above again.
All functions pertaining to guilds can be found on the guildstone including recruiting new players, resigning, the guild charter and other things. There is also a list of guild dot commands available.
- Members of a guild can resign their guild using the the .resign command.
When you create a guild, you will be given the choice of making it Order [good], Neutral or Chaos. This option can also be changed at any time.
Order guilds are automatically at war with any Chaos guilds, and vice versa. Order and Chaos guilds are also able to declare war on Neutral guilds, and vice versa. This is only an RP war and all PvP rules apply. Guild wars as such are not currently allowed on Valhalla and must be taken to the Malas realm. For more about guild wars, please read the PvP section.
Advertise your guild at the Master Guild Hall at Folkvang. You can buy a guild board for a small amount of gold and describe your guild for others to read. If you have a guild color, it will change the board to that color. Boards needs to be refreshed every 30 days.
Around the lands are special houses that are reserved for guilds. These can be identified by the sign near the house sign reserving it for guilds only.
There are two types of guild halls: rented and owned.
When your guild has grown to have 4 (four) active, separate account members, the guild leader can temporarily rent one of these guild halls for 4 months. The cost is 10% of the value of the guild hall, per month, payable on the first of the month. A chest will be set up outside the house sign where you are to deposit the gold. Failure to pay means immediate eviction when the landlord comes to check on the rent payments. The gold is non-refundable when the time is up.
When your guild has grown to 8 (eight) active, separate account members, the guild leader can purchase a designated guild hall to hold your meetings and for your members to gather. This guild hall is separate from your other houses.
You may only have 1 (one) guild hall per account.
There are periodic checks for active accounts. Once a guild has fallen below the minimum active accounts, it will be sold.
In Valhalla's beginnings, guild dye tubs with special unique colors were given out to 8 guilds. These tubs are no longer available and there are no plans to making them available again. The guilds who still have these dye tubs will be allowed to keep them until the guild become inactive or deleted.
- New guild colors are available from the guild vendor.
The guild vendor is a special vendor located at Uppsala, Lost Realms. Here, you are able to buy a variety of items as well as get your very own guild color. These colors have never been offered anywhere else and are special for your guild only. You are required to have 8 separate accounts to receive your own guild color. If you do not have 8 accounts, you will lose the guild color.
To get your own guild color, the guild leader must pay 250,000gp to the guild vendor.
- Only the guild leader can pick the color.
- The guild color CAN NOT be changed once it is chosen. You have exclusive use of that color until you do not have enough members and the color is available once again.
- Only certain slots can be dyed a guild color: the doublet, hip sash, cloak, kilt, relic and shield.
- Only 3 shields can be dyed: order, kite (representing neutral) and chaos shields.
- When you use a tarnishing agent on the item, it will no longer be a guild-colored item.
- Only your own guild members can use items colored with the guild color. If another person tries to put on the item, it will become tarnished. If the person leaves the guild, the item will become tarnished.
To dye the item, put the item on your paperdoll, use the coloring kit and target the item on your paperdoll. This will determine if the item is in the right slot and be colored.
The guild vendor also sells items. All PvP items can only be used at Malas.

Player merchants can be set up to allow guild members to get a refund. Use guild refund when near your merchant to set up the discount. If you want to give members a 60% discount, set the discount to 60. Members will still need to purchase the item at the full price then will get 60% of their gold back.
