The Daranthan Clan Guilds
The daranthans have been a space fairing race since before anyone can remember. At least five hundred thousand years is the estimate. In all that time they have lived in their various clan fleets traveling the galaxy.
Each clan fleet composes one guild that oversees all business dealings of the fleet.
Among daranthans the words for clan and guild are pretty much interchangable and the clan/guild offices compose the entirety of each fleet’s government as well.
The daranthan guilds have been an important influence on the galaxy for thousands of years. There were parts of history when the daranthan fleets were the only major source of trade for many worlds. Today this is less so with the growth of interstellar trade among many space fairing species meaning that worlds no longer need to wait on the fleets migration cycles.
Though they still remain active in trade in the galaxy, many daranthan clan/guilds have diversified into various investment ventures making them the frequent “silent partners” in ecconomic activities across known space, and likely beyond.
