|If you are a king or you belong to a particular kingdom,
then you will have options under the 'CROWN' screen. If
you want to join a kingdom, search the 'KINGDOM' list
for a good candidate and then go to the 'CROWN' screen
|If you are a vassal you will be able to see who is in
your kingdom along with a few details about them. You
will also get an option to leave the kingdom. Beware;
every vassal must serve a period of loyalty when he joins
his kingdom, leaving before this service is up will hold
your province in great shame. If you have served your
period you may stay or leave at any time without penalty.
|Leaving before your term is up as a vassal, will cause
you to lose reputation. Provinces can also be banished
from a kingdom by their king which will also cause a loss
of reputation. A province which leaves before its time
or is banished will lose all its trade caravans.
|If you are the monarch, other options will become available
to you in this section. Amongst these is the option to
drop any province that you may not like or is not acting
according to your rules. If you drop a province, this
province will lose its membership in your kingdom and
will not be able to return for a given period. If the
province is reduced to a single member or less and is
not chartered, the kingdom will be auto deleted after
a period of a few days.
|Monarchs may view a list of all the kingdom members
on the 'CROWN' page. This list also allows the king to
distribute the 'Monarch's Defense'. A Monarch decides
how to distribute his defense by assigning a percentage
amongst his vassals. A Monarch may choose not to distribute
any defense to a particular vassal, in which case this vassal
will remain undefended by the Monarch. Assigning defense does
not remove a king's own defense. If a king gets attacked
directly, he will defend normally regardless of his Monarch
|Every outposts adds a 1% bonus to the player's assigned
'Monarch's Defense'. A kingdom may have a maximum of 1 outpost
for every vassal and these must be bought and maintained by
the monarch. Additionally other game items such as ACTs may
give similar bonuses to the assigned 'Monarch's Defense'.
These will be highlighted in the 'CROWN' page and the bonus
totals added to the appropriate column (MD) in the kingdom's
vassal list. The Monarch has full control over these
bonuses and has the option of disabling them for specific
players if the need arises. This can be done by choosing
the correct combination of tick boxes in this same list.
|After serving a period, the Monarch may retire his crown
and pass it on to a kingdom member. This province will
then be promoted to Monarch status, whilst the old monarch
retires as a vassal under the same kingdom.
|The king has access to information about all the provinces
in his kingdom, information that would otherwise be unavailable
to provinces without the use of covert ops and spies.
