In the Royal Basin the people are governed by a noble house that takes on the rulership of the land through a popular vote. The head of the family becomes Monarch and they are served by a sequence of Tables with the Golden Table leading the country.

The Guildsfolk are monitored by the Iron Table which liaises between Gold and the Tables which serve the Iron.

Players that serve a Table are likely to have followed a course of action along the following lines; Joined the Academy at the age of four and trained in all arts until the age of twelve when they joined a guild and gathered specific training. Once your training is completed at the age of twenty one a guilder will generally join a Table which represents their opportunities and how they serve the Basin. You can find a plethora of background regarding how and why you were trained and a whole host of intrinsic beliefs and oaths that can guide you into the rich history of that game. This can be found in theĀ Guilds of the Royal BasinĀ area.
