Guild versus Guild[edit]

NPCs in Guild versus Guild have their models altered as follows:

Archer Bodyguard Footman and Knight Guild Lord
Skeleton ranger.jpg Zombie Horseman.jpg Skeleton warrior.jpg Mad King Thorn.jpg

The opposing Guild Lord drops 10 Trick-or-Treat Bags for each player of the winning team when he dies. To prevent exploitation, no rewards are offered if (a) the match ends after 28 minutes without either side killing a Guild Lord or (b) the battle ends in under 5 minutes (e.g. due to one team resigning or zoning).
