For a complete listing of the role playing clans/guilds, please visit the AoW Guild Information site.

The Cause
A "Neutral Evil" aligned AoW role-playing Guild. Though it is the oldest and largest guild in Age of Wonders, THE CAUSE is a bit of an oddity. They are a cult of sorts that follows a vision of "Enlightenment," brought to people by an entity called "The Voice." They have their own message board.

Guild of Nightal - (the Old Site is still available too)
A "Lawful Good" aligned AoW role-playing Guild. The GUILD OF NIGHTAL was created to oppose THE CAUSE in all its endeavors. They have their own message board.

The Heron Guard
A "Chaotic Neutral" aligned AoW role-playing Guild. The HERON GUARD -- originally a Lawful Neutral organization brought into existence to balance out THE CAUSE and GUILD OF NIGHTAL -- recently became Chaotic. They have their own message board.

The Doroshi
The Doroshi is an AoW role-playing Guild. I don't know of any site or forum for them.
