The Fishing Guild was established in the city of Lynnar shortly after the was formed and chairs on the new council were offered to the Taipii guilds. Taipii fishers were in competition with each other at the time and few were interested in establishing a guild, but talk of new laws limiting fishing in Lynnar waterways and the prospect of having a stronger political voice won over a handful of fishers and the guild was formed.
In its early years the guild went through frequent leadership changes as the small and skeptical membership found limited reason to participate in the guild. In it's fourth year the guild adopted a "no membership fee, optional duty" policy which helped calm members threatening to leave the guild over its original schedule of fees and member dues. This change resulted in almost no income for the guild for the fourth year, but leadership insisted on keeping the change and that it was the guild's responsibility to make the duty fee attractive to members, rather than an obligation.
Over the following decades the strategy worked - the guild started organizing fishing crews, running its own boats, and working with sailors to provide more lucrative opportunities. The guild began writing and accumulating books that documented the behavior of fish and their habitats and then limited access to that information to guild members who paid their dues. The guild also found success in organizing fishing competitions and seasonal tours, which helped attract new members and establish new chapter guild halls.
Guild Duty and Fees
The Fishing Guild does not have a membership fees, but instead relies on members accepting a duty levied when selling their catches. The duty is optional, but members are strongly encouraged and rewarded for selling their catches either through the guild directly or to atrader.
Selling catches directly via the Fishing Guild will earn points in the Fishing Guild. When selling to a member of the Merchants Guild a ticket will be issued to the seller which can also be redeemed for points in guild. Guild points earn a member higher rank and access to additional perks in the guild (such as access to buying higher tier gear and learning new skills).
Guild Culture and Tradition
Relationship with Other Guilds
The Fishing Guild has a strong positive relationship with the Merchants Guild. The two guilds have an agreement which allows members of the Merchants Guild to collect a duty fee on behalf of the Fishing Guild when a member of the guild sells their catch. In return for this the Fishing Guild sells all fish it buys from members through the merchant guild. (Members of the Fishing Guild are allowed to sell fish directly to a buyer such as a chef if they prefer - but they won't earn any points with the guild when doing so.)
Taipii Merchants Guild
The Taipii Merchants guild specializes in trade and maintaining trade routes between Taipii cities and villages. The guild spends a lot of energy tracking and communicating the supply and demand of Taipii goods across Forra
