DOTS Guild

Greetings Traveler, and welcome to the DOTS Guild! Our Guild is home to wonderful individuals who are passionate about being a force of good in the land. Our members span across many different ranks, each one having their own part to play in keeping our mission moving forward. We are actively recruiting new members and have many positions available. Some ranks require a small donation to be made to the guild to help cover costs, while others are available on a volunteer basis. Below you will find a list of our ranks as well as current guild members. If you are interested in joining any of the ranks listed below, please provide the Guild Master with your application or begin your patronage.

His brain is always running, crafting new ideas, items, and solutions for obstacles we need to overcome.

Their voice is a driving force moving things forward and keeping us connected.
