Runes of Magic has announced the introduction of Guild Castles to the world of Taborea. A guild must reach level 7 and obtain several resourcs before castle construction can begin. Guild leaders can set storage access, guild ranks, and the ability for other members to place things in the castle. Future plans for the castles include the ability for gates and teleporters to help reduce travel times, the ability to add weapons and defenses to the castles to prevent raids from other guildes, and the addition of thrones which will allow one guild to successfully complete conquests and take over other guild castles!
Here's the official Runes of Magic post:
Today's patch introduced the Guild Castles to the world of Taborea - the
first new step into the direction of more sophisticated Guild-vs-Guild battles.
Once a guild has reached level 7 and has stocked up on several resources, they can start building their castle.
These castles give access to central guild storage for all members.
The guild leader can set detailed permissions for all different guild ranks - from access to the storage to who is allowed to place and move furniture.
Later there will be more features: gates and teleporters to reduce travel times and weapons to defend the castle when the guild-vs-guild feature is in.
Because in the future guilds will be able to conquer opposing castles. However, guilds may go to war only if they also possess their own throne.
