The Minrothad Guilds
|Author||Deborah Christian and Kim Eastland|
The Minrothad Guilds are fictional seaborne merchants, and the book covers life, society, and politics in their lands. The Minrothad Guilds describes the great trading guilds of the D&D world and their island homes. The 32-page "Player's Booklet" outlines the operation of the guilds, including their laws and rigid caste system. The 64-page "Dungeon Master's Booklet" covers the guilds' overall history, government, and relationship with pirates. The gazetteer also describes trade in the D&D world, and includes rules for adaptation to AD&D.
The Minrothad Guilds (GAZ9) was written by Deborah Christian and Kim Eastland, with a cover by Clyde Caldwell and interior illustrations by John Lakey, and was published by TSR in 1988. It comprises a 64-page "Dungeon Master's Booklet", a 32-page "Player's Booklet", a large color map, and an outer folder.
Jim Bambra briefly reviewed The Minrothad Guilds for Dragon magazine #151 (November 1989). Bambra wrote that the book "bring[s] trading adventures into the forefront of fantasy gaming", and that with rules regarding trading, "fame and fortune can now be gained in ways other than mere adventuring".
