Guildeves are small, rectangular plates made of stained crystal set into a frame of precious medal, each depicting one of Eorzea's patron saints, also known as "guardians". When issuing tasks or quests guilds will often provide adventures with these plates allowing bearers "leave" to take whatever steps necessary to complete the jobs.
Upon assessing an adventures skill a guildmaster will provide a selection of several different leves, taken from the guild's stock.
adventures may then select the leves that they feel best suit their needs. Of course there is no regulations stating the tasks must be done alone, adventures are free to call companions to help them as only one leve is required to take advantage of the benefits and privileges provided to it's bearer.
