Another unique feature of Althanas is power groups
Power Groups, or clans, are grousp of players who band together to achieve common goals. Typical PGs include adventuring parties, guilds (such as Thieves and Assassins guilds), religious groups and cults, secret societies, mercenary armies, Gypsy groups, and just about any other organization one can think of.
You may be asking yourself, "Why should I join a Power Group?" Well, there are several benefits to joining one. First, you'll often be allied with a group of more-experienced players that can assist you with your role-playing and give you tips on how to improve. Second, there are in-character rewards of EXP and GP if your PG captures and holds a Headquarters. Third, you may just meet a new role-playing buddy that you can participate with in battles and quests.
