So i was thinking a bit, after I read a few posts about clans, and It made me wonder... Would guilds be like medieval lords, who would essentially rent out their land? e.g. The king owns ____ amount of land, he gives x amount to each baron who gives y amount to each lesser lord and it continues as such.
So, would the guild master's capital be like the large capital of the area and each of the officers in their land around the capital and each member surrounding them? Like a large concentric circle, lesser peoples on the outside, important people near the center.
