The Dungeon Master's Guide II feat Favored in Guild (227-8) describes guilds as types (e.g. arcane guild, criminal guild). Belonging to one of these guild types grants a fringe benefit.1
Champions of Valor republished the feat Favored in Guild (75), tacitly changing the feat to apply to specific guilds (e.g. The Druids of Tall Trees (CV 78), The Fangshields (CV 80)). According to that text, belonging to one of these guilds grants a fringe benefit.
However, Champions of Valor maintains the DMG2's guild typing system.
For example, The Druids of Tall Trees is listed as a naturalist guild, yet Champions of Valor mentions nothing of The Druids of Tall Trees providing the fringe benefit of a naturalist guild as described in the DMG2. Instead, the Druids of Tall Trees provides a (not incompatible) fringe benefit a creature gains upon taking the feat Favored in Guild (The Druids of Tall Trees).
Does a creature with the feat Favored in Guild get both the fringe benefit of the creature's guild's type and the fringe benefit of the creature's named guild?
That is, is the fringe benefit listed in the Dungeon Master's Guide II in addition to the fringe benefit a specific guild provides, or does a specific guild provide only its specific fringe benefit?
(Yes, the inclusion of guild type with specific guilds is throwing me off.)
- Sometimes an execrable fringe benefit. Yeah, I'm looking at you, Favored in Guild (scholastic).
