Known in-character as 'Sub-divisions', groups are player-run organizations that serve the same function as guilds in other games. Groups have access to a private group channel, and earn experience and freecred for the group as they play. This group experience earns the group levels, which can be traded for perks and bonuses.

(Leader Only) Sets the tax rate on freecred earned by members. The tax rate is actually 1/5th of what is shown. A set tax of '10' will effectively be a 2% tax on earnings.

7: The current JP Tax percentage on adventuring is: ##
(Leader Only) Sets the tax rate on XP earned by members. The tax rate is actually 1/5th of what is shown. A set tax of '20' will effectively be a 4% tax on XP earnings. I.E. - A player earning 1.0 XP from a fight will see .96 freecred go to their bank, while 0.04 XP will go to the group level.
