There is no King/Queen in my kingdom, how do I become one?
"To become regent you will need to have a certain age, charisma and healthy amount of silver coins (See Regent and Royal Palace for details.) If you can gather that kind of money, and there is a vacant position, check the royal palace for the option."
I have just started. What shall I do?
"Complete the tutorial to get silver coins, a items, and to learn how various basics work. Reach out to other players like your regent or people in the chat or forum"
I bought a field, and a seed, how do I plant it?
"At least one seed and one fertilizer must be put in the field's storage. You must also have a hoe and a sickle in your character's inventory to sow and harvest. You will receive two seeds with your harvest, so you can continue the cicle."
Okay, where can I get a hoe?
"You will get a hoe and sickle by doing the tutorial, but eventually you will have to buy new ones at a market or ask other players where to find one."
There is no food on the market, my character is going to die!
"Reach out to other players to help with your immediate need. Someone will be able to send you some food or come to your region and supply the market. Consider leaving the region to look for food elsewhere before you run out of glut completely. You can earn a few silver coins by cleaning a prison and you can rest for free at a tavern to boost your energy. You may want to consider being a baker yourself, and take advantage of the shortage and ever-increasing demand."
What are the Red, Blue and Green bars for in the game?
"The Red bar represents your character's health. Health can be decreased through starvation and injury in combat. The Blue bar represents your character's energy. Energy is decreased whenever you perform an action. You can increase energy through rest, by drinking alcoholic beverages or voting. The Green bar represents your character's satiety. Satiety decreases through actions, and also by 16% every day. You can increase satiety by eating food."
I tried to mine/ Chop wood, but it wouldn't let me, why?
"You will need a pickaxe or shovel to mine, and a hatchet to chop wood. You must also be on territory that belongs to your own or an allied kingdom."
I want to go away on holiday, but my character will die !
"You can 'Pray and Meditate' by selecting the link at the top submenu in the Region View page. This is similar to other game's "Holiday Mode" features. While in this mode, your character doesn't need to be fed."
My animals keep dying, why is this?
"Your animals need to eat, just like your character. They require food, the amount of which is displayed on the Wiki. If you fail to feed them, they will die."
How do I milk and slaughter my animals?
"A bucket is required to collect milk. You may milk cows or sheep every third day. A knife is required to slaughter the livestock, which produces meat. You may slaughter your livestock on the 15th day, and must do so by the end of the 20th day."
How do I buy a hut, field, workshop or farm ?
"This can all be done by looking at the options available in the ==Castle== menu or trough the ==Small Village== structure. Animal farms can be bought only in certain regions, where you will see a specific structure. Farms cost ~100 silver coins and will only exist for ~20 days"
How do I make money?
- probably best ask your regent for individual advice;
- Producing goods or mining resources to sell on the market is the main way of making money; restrictive laws may apply. Check your kingdom's laws to avoid penalization;
- Trading from city to city;
- Cleaning the prison is also a way;
How do I buy new clothes?
"Your city may have a tailor selling clothes in the Marketplace. Contact a tailor to buy some clothes. You may want to consider being a tailor to take advantage of market needs."
I donated something by mistake, how do I get it back?
"Unfortunately, the only option you have is to ask the person for it back and explain that you did it by accident.
What is the "Condition" of my equipment?
"This refers to the physical condition it is in currently, 100% being the best condition and 0% being broken. The attributes of the equipment, clothing or armor, will decrease as the condition falls. The condition will fall through use in functions. Items with 0% condition will vanish from your inventory.
I started creating a hoe, but I pressed "cancel" because I wanted to make a hatchet instead, but my items have gone now!?
"Cancelling any production action will cause your materials to be lost. Think very carefully before you do this. "
If you upgrade a workshop does the value increase?
"Yes, because to craft some items (like the Wooden Cart) big storage is needed. The shop eventually can be sold on the market. You still need to find someone interested in buying though."
Suddenly I lost 16% glut. Why?
Every day 16% glut is removed from the character no matter the circumstances.
Can a Kingdom name be changed?
Yes. Check Paid Services page.
Can I merge my Kingdom with another one?
Theoretically, yes. Check Paid Services page. But No, it can't.
I encountered a bug or need to contact the game admins for some other reason. How can I do that?
Check the discord chat.
How can I communicate with the other players?
Most of the time you will simply send messages to one other player. The game also has a global chat, a kingdom chat, the government announcements, discord, the groups which offer chatroom and mass mail for all members. And then there is this wiki. Some players/ kingdoms use external communication such as skype, IRC, discord chat, ...
I want to work in a mine to get some resources, but it says it may be depleted. What should I do?
The mine is temporarily depleted and will not give much output or none at all. If you tried to do this queued 2 or 3 times, maybe it will be enough to just do it 1 or 2 times, but you should probably wait for a day or two so the mine will refill and then try again. You can also look at how many other people are working in the mine at this moment, so you see how tough the competition for its resources is right now: You can check the character list in the region or ask the tower guard if one exists there.
What is the fast travel network?
A feature you can use when you have the travel bonus package. It allows you to not only travel from one region to the next but to travel from one network node to the next, so you don't need to log in so often. You can make the network visible on the travel page with its button above the map. The red lanes at sea can be used without the travel bonus.
What does the travel bonus do?
It allows you to travel 50% faster on land or for free at sea.
I am carrying so much stuff that I am overloaded. Now I need to spend a lot of money to travel by sea and much glut and energy to travel by land. Is there a way to help me avoid this?
If there is a market you can put some of your goods there and come back later. Maybe write that down somewhere, so you will be sure to find the place again. You can also buy a house and store your goods in there. You can buy a cart from a market or make one in a carpenter shop. A small cart will give you a +300kg carrying capacity. You can also buy the professional cart with doubloons that will be even better. Or you can buy a travel package with doubloons which allow you to travel by sea for free, even if you are overloaded. It will not help you with land travel in this matter though.
I am low on glut and / or energy and I am in a region without a market or prison to get food / a tavern to sleep. How can I leave this region? Will, I die now?
You can buy a hut from the castle or village to sleep in. You can vote every day for energy, so even if you don't find a place to sleep, you can get enough energy to continue traveling as long as you have enough glut or can access the sea. You should always have some food with you to avoid this situation. Send a message to your king/ queen or someone nearby, so they can send you some food. This will probably take a while, it depends on how far away you are from the sender.
Most characters look alike, how can I make mine look differently?
You can change what your character wears. You can dye your clothes using the option in your inventory. You need to have a dye pot in your inventory as well and will get to choose from a variety of colors.
And you can buy the atelier license for 150 doubloons. It will add a "configure appearance"-link to your inventory page, which brings you to a screen where you can upload images to replace each standard image for clothing, physical features like hair and face or arms and armor. Additional costs in doubloons will have to be paid for the admin's approval of your images or to buy images from the administrators themselves.
Every region is hostile to mine, and I am just a newborn citizen. How can I escape my home region?!? I can't complete the quests if I can't escape. I am going to die!
Ask your regent if this will change or if you can expect some other sort of support. If not, then yes. If you are merely surrounded by hostile regions, but might enter others, you can ask the hostile regent(s) for a travel permit, which will last 24 hours and allow you to get past the blockade.
