Added DiffLines:

* High Level Familia such as Loki Familia operate as this in ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon''. In addition to slaying monsters in the titular dungeon they very frequently take on quests to retrieve drop items or rare materials from the dungeon, especially the lower levels, or act as escorts for members of the Familia more focused on crafting to gather the materials themselves. The Guild (which is not this, despite the name) can also issue quests directly, such as commanding Familia to participate in the defence of the city against would be invaders.
* These exist in the various cities of E-Rantel in ''{{LightNovel/Overlord}}'', both taking requests for various missions to fight against the monsters of the world as well as setting prices and overseeing the ranking system that governs individual adventurers.

One more thing: Although the main characters are described as a guild, they usually don't have a common skill set. [[FighterMageThief Fighters, mages, and thieves]] (and others) can all work for the same guild, but won't learn skills from each other. After all, that would make them similar, and WhatMeasureIsANonUnique? (There are occasionally organizations that cater to these types, but then we get into politics.)
