How to create a Kingdom
How to join a Kingdom
Kingdom Flags, Towers, and Obelisks
Just like players in PK, Kingdoms own flags. Kingdoms are limited in the number of flags, towers, and obelisks they can control. The max total of these is dependent on the number of players in the kingdom.
To make a kingdom flag, a kingdom member needs to build their own flag first, harden it, and then upgrade it to a kingdom flag.
Kingdom Towers provide defense for the kingdom land.
Kingdom Flags can also be upgraded to Kingdom Obelisks to provide a Brick bonus for more efficient hunting within a visible circle radius (600 meters).
Bricks are a brand new, Kingdom-specific resource.
This score is an overall measure of the size, strength, and prosperity of each Kingdom.
War with Golems
Firebomb and Siege golems will probably be most players' weapons of choice for doing large scale war.
Firebomb golems are single use weapons of mass destruction.
Siege weapons have a large range, and they can inflict massive amounts of damage to several target buildings over time.
War camps allow you to transport golems vast distances. Without using a war camp, golems will not follow you when you travel farther than a couple flag distances.
Signal Flares can be purchased at the trade post for 20 Food or 2000 Gold.
Signal Flares can be set up anywhere by a player. They are invisible to everyone except the player. When setup they are given a name. When any building within flag sight range (the distance at which you can see any flag, even outside your circle range) is attacked and would send you a notification, that signal flare is set off. Once the flare is set off, it last for 3 days (1 day on beta) before running out and being destroyed. It is still invisible to everyone except you. That notification and any following notification for the next 3 days (1 day on beta) include the signal flare’s name.
New Messaging System
There is a new and improved messaging system. It is not completely polished and some of its functions could change. I won't go into details except to say that we are currently hoping to have the following core features:
