In limits.c, remove the code that advances the player to the next level
when they get enough experience.
This lets them simple gain and gain away until they go to a guild and do
something about it.

Now, for making the seperate guildmasters . . . .  Go to spec_procs.c and
write special procedures for it.
I won't write the whole darn thing for you, but this is the basic idea:

  struct char_data *guildmaster = (struct char_data *) me;

  if(GET_LEVEL(ch) > (put level they have to stop going here)) {
    act("$N says, 'I can no longer be of service to you $n.'", FALSE, ch,
0, guildmaster, TO_CHAR);
    return TRUE;

  if(CMD_IS("gain")) && titles[(int) GET_CLASS(ch)] [GET_LEVEL(ch) + 1] <
GET_EXP(ch)) {
    act("$N shouts, 'Congradulations $n!  You have gained a level!'",
FALSE, ch, 0, guildmaster, TO_CHAR);
    act("$N shouts, 'Congradulations $n!  You have gained a level!'",
FALSE, ch, 0, guildmaster, TO_ROOM);
    return TRUE;
 return FALSE;

 /* same code without the level restrictions */

Hope this gives you an idea of how to do it.
