The Guild insignia is unique and expressly designed to proudly display the Minor Guild charms representative of ones ancestors trades. When a member chooses to purchase the large insignia, the pin will be sent with a charm suspended from the beautiful filigree top bar, denoting the Minor Guild of the original ancestor. Members may submit as many supplements as they wish, no matter what Minor Guild the ancestor falls under---however some members have expressed the desire to set a goal for themselves, to qualify for all six (6) Minor Guilds---for which the member may purchase the corresponding charms to attach to the filigree top bar.
