Guild Member

Like an artisan you belong to a guild but instead of merchants you consort with criminals. You live a comfortable lifestyle without charge, and your guild will grant you protection from any crimes you are charged with. To remain part of the guild you must pay them 10 gold you earn every month. In addition your guild provides for the upkeep of your weapons and your living costs (food) while away from the guild.
