The Guild of Maintainers is one of the five Guilds that the DRC has encouraged and supported the restoration of. Their primary duty is the inspection and approval of Ages written by the restored Guild of Writers. They also have taken some responsibility for maintaining safety in the cavern as well as inspecting and reporting on Ages after the DRC has released them to the explorers.
The DRC has stated in their information in Kirel that "in the future, we hope that the new Guild of Maintainers will be the first people into every Age. The Maintainers will test all new areas for stability and functionality and any Age released to the public will require Maintainer approval."
The DRC was able to open a pub specific to the Guild of Maintainers, and all who have picked up their t-shirt in Kirel have access to it through the nexus system. There is also at least one neighborhood associated with the Guild of Maintainers. Outside of the cavern they may be found at http://www.guildofmaintainers.org.Members of the Guild may be distinguished on the Guild's forum by the maroon color of their profile name.They have maintained as much activity as possible in inspecting Ages in close cooperation with the Guild of Writers.
The Guild of Maintainers, often referred to as GoMa, completed elections for several leadership positions at the end of November 2007. In the summer of 2009 the leadership stepped down officially and took on the role of moderators. The Guild is currently without official leadership. With the reopening of the Cavern in February of 2010 elections for new leadership are expected. Until that time the following Guild Members can be contact with any needs: Mongomery, Dot, Nynaveve, Frisky Badger, Andy Legate, Jishin, Mustard Jeep.
