    A Kingly Gift to celebrate a great anniversary

    A kingdom is not built in a day and neither is a great game and an even better community. Ten years ago we started our journey with Goodgame Studios and soon after with King Eric. It’s been a long road with its ups and downs but here we are today after ten years and we are going to celebrate!

    Today you will be able to log in and claim our Kingly Giftto you. This is a 24 hour 100% booster for our Festival of the Lotus King that is just starting. It is only available until the 30th of August so don’t delay too long. It’s not going to be available again!

    You can also join in on our festivities on Facebook where we will be hosting the Cake Off Bake Off Challenge, where you the players can vote for the ingredients we are using to make the Ultimate Birthday Cake. We will also be offering some prizes there so please check it out.

    Title: The Khan seeks his revenge, deny him at every opportunity!

    Riding with all haste your Guardian Lysimakos has returned in the dead of night with dire tidings. His far-ranging scouts have discovered a threat to our Kingdom. Once again the fierce warriors of the Khan have taken the path of war and they are bearing down on the Kingdoms upon the fastest of steeds. He has warned the outlying settlements and outposts that war will come to our fair lands today. A vicious and deadly war but also the chance for glory and honor! Our wise leader King Eric will reward the greatest of his subjects, those who rise to the challenge of this invasion and crush the impotent invaders.

    Slinking among the shadows, hiding among the people are the shapeshifters. Using foul blood magic to hide their true selves it is only under the light of the moon that they are revealed for what they truly are, a hideous parody of the people of the Kingdoms. Erecting their totems to invoke their carmine rituals and profaning our lands, we cannot allow this. Our people must live without the threat of a knife in the jugular stealing their precious vitae. Ride out today Lords and Ladies, throw down the totems and symbols of our enemy. Do not rest until they are driven from our lands!

    A bold attack, a knife to the heart of our Kingdom! Foreign Lord and Ladies have overrun our outer defenses and claimed castles in our Kingdom. These contemptible Invaders mean to usurp from us the lands of our ancestors, the fields we have tilled for generations, and the hard-won advances against the wilderness. Will you allow this, will you stand by as your people are subjugated and made to swear allegiance to another? Rise with your King, for Eric will lead the vanguard. Where will you be ranked amongst his subjects, at the front of the charge? Now is the time to stand, we march for glory and honor!

    Choose Adelbert’s rightful heir!

    The fog of war vanishes for a moment and opens a path to the kingdom of Berimond. 
    A realm where the lion clashes with the bear. Where the “Gold Lion” of house Gerbrandt, Leopold III and the “Bear of Berimond”, Grimbert of the house of Ursidae call their bannermen to the battle for supremacy. Now the last hope for the Kingdom of Berimond rests on your shoulders, as you have to choose which apex predator you’ll support in their conquest. But choose wisely, since your enemy will fight you relentlessly until the bitter end.

    The Migration of the Eidolons

    From the great Mountains of Dawn, the Eidolons have descended upon our lands. Their great bodies formed of granite and basalt and held together with luminescent green strands of elemental essence. To see one, even in the mountains they call home, is a rare event. Many in the Kingdoms go their whole lives without ever witnessing the spectacle of a twelve-foot tall behemoth striding across the countryside. Their migrations come rarely but when they do no one forgets the sight. The come to the lowlands in search of vital elemental essence with which they can sustain their bodies. The essence itself is rare and gathers slowly over the years around structures built of stone. Gathering the essence is a difficult and time-consuming task for the Eidolons. Instead, they will pay the Lords and Ladies well for what essences they can provide. Raid your enemies' lands and steal what essence they have gathered through the years. The rewards of the Eidolons are renowned as some of the rarest in the lands. Gather your strength and act today before your rivals have time to react.

    Berimond in the Kingdom League

    Just short information for you all, Berimond will be included in the current Kingdoms League. War of Rea, however, will run simultaneously but will not be included in the Kingdoms League.

    A royal invitation to the grand melee

    "My lords and ladies

    And everyone else whose not of royal blood: Today, you’ll find yourselves equals! 
    This grandest of grand melees and its contest of strength, shan’t consider any difference by birthright, but rather a difference in strength, valor, and skill. 

    Yet this grand melee will also put your camaraderie on trial, hence it has been foretold, that the power of a unified force shall always prevail against the strife of the lone wolves. So gather your banners and call to arms your most trusted allies, so that the best alliance may emerge as the glorious winner of this tourney

    But beware: deserters shall be punished and will, therefore, be shorn of the privilege of participating in this tournament. 

    Fare thee well and may your sword be guided by dedication and mastery.

    His majesties herald held in the highest esteem, 

    Henry La-Voicé"

    Brave lords and ladies, 

    We are going to have a server maintenance today between ~ 13:00 - 14:00 CEST!
    This maintenance will have a downtime of approximately 20 - 30 minutes. Food and boosters will, of course, be frozen. 

    We have to do this server maintenance today in order to fix an issue with the alliance ranking. We have also identified a possible-, but unlikely. a technical issue that could have forced us to restart some servers. We will use the downtime to deploy a fix for this as well. 

    Best regards,
    Your Empire Family

    The Bloodcrows are here and the Scavenger King wants to pick over the bones of our great Kingdom. Repugnant and nasty warriors already slink through our lands stealing and scavenging as they go. Will not someone stand against the Invaders, will you not stand against them? Let our glorious banners be raised, let our swords and shields glint in the sunshine. Let us bring forth the foul warriors of the Scavenger King from their shadows, revealed in their corrupt and loathsome forms. Let them be cast out of our Kingdom. Rally Lords and Ladies for today we go to war.

    King Eric’s 200% Prime Time. Today Only!


    In the bowels of King Eric’s Palace, deep beneath the surface lies the great treasury. Every now and then the Chief Treasurer Moneyfingers audits its contents to ensure that his staff have been diligently recording the taxes of the Lords and Ladies. He spends hours in the depths painstakingly counting and pouring over ledgers in the dim light and sometimes he finds a miscalculation. This time the indefatigable Treasurer has found a hidden stash of rubies and King Eric wants to share this new found wealth!

    Benevolent King Eric has decreed it high time to extend a rare 200% Prime Time offer today from 21.00 pm to 21.30 pm (CEST) to you all. These offers don’t come around often. So if you wish to avail of this offer make sure and do so today. Truly his generosity knows no bounds!
