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.
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 has 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!
You wake up. It is a morning like any other, yet the first thing to greet you is a messenger of the Royal Court who hastily pushes through your loyal servants that were guarding the room. Your request for him to explain his behavior is met by a quickly stretched out hand holding a pamphlet with the royal seal on it. “There’s no time! You must read my lord!”, the messenger insists.
Breaking the royal seal you immediately unfold the pamphlet only to be greeted by the writing of Inkfingers, the King’s Scribe. Hastily you begin to read: “My lord commander, With the cosmic potential of the Relic Equipment unlocked it is now time to strike back at the Invaders, more fiercely than ever before. Ready your armies for as soon as dawn strikes as not only does your duty to defend hearth and home call you to arms but our latest spy reports indicate that the enemies are in possession of treasures, which were thought to be lost in the first conflicts of ages gone - the mythical Gold and Silver Pieces have once again been spotted by mortal eyes! It is your ultimate most goal to obtain as many of these as possible! This can either be done by the obvious tasks at hand: Loot the invading forces such as the barbaric tribes of the Nomads, the unrelenting legions of the Bloodcrows and other such forces of dangerous invaders, in order to receive the Pieces! Yet rumors have it that the much rarer Gold Pieces can also be obtained by engaging in the long term festivities, such as the currently celebrated Lotus King Festival! The King has already sent forth his stonemasons and tradespeople in order to establish some shops that will offer you certain rewards, in exchange for the Silver and Gold Pieces, of course! The Silver Shop will provide you with additional troops and tools for your armies, fusion materials - such as dust, catalysts, fusion decorations and more - magical hourglasses which will help you bend the laws of time and reality in order to skip the process of erecting your buildings and much more! Oh and to top that all off, you’ll be able to exchange your silver pieces into Gold Pieces as well!
The Gold Shop, on the other hand, will predominantly provide you with unique equipment pieces as well as full sets of unique equipment. But you’ll also find construction items as well as zodiac decorations in this shop and it will indeed offer some of the other rewards such as troops and tools as well.
As offers go, there’s a certain limit of purchase to some rewards of both shops (like troops for example), but don’t fret: The shop’s stocks will be resupplied after a certain period of time has passed.
We will also introduce Silver Pieces which will be awarded in place of smaller levels of achievement.
Tablets and Tokens will remain in the game as will the tents where you can spend them. All other rewards will be removed with some small exceptions and replaced with Gold and Silver coins
You will be able to spend the coins accrued for the new event rewards. There will be caps on the amount of most of the things you can buy.
The prize progression is now linear rather than its previous more chaotic progression. Once you pass the second reward tier you will earn a higher cumulative value worth of rewards than previously.
The following events will be changed for a player of level 60+:
This change will come on the 8th of October.
As you have read above we are currently about to make a big change to our event rewards. Like we did recently with our Long Term Point Event we will be removing rewards from all of our events and replacing them with a currency: Gold Pieces. These will be redeemable at a special event camp for prizes.
Our noble and stalwart ally Shogun Takemura has sent you an urgent request. The arrogant general Akechi has once again raised his banners to summon the elite Samurai warriors to him with whom he plans to invade our fair lands. Takemura will hold him off for as long as possible but we must raise our own banners and ride to his aid. Today we will respond to Akechi’s threats with force.
The King has proclaimed that this shall be a day worth remembering! It is thanks to the hard work of his loyal subjects, that King Eric has issued a 150% Global Prime Time for all of the kingdoms under his banner! Let this day be known as a great day of celebration!
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!
The arcane Astral Seers have predicted that at dawn on the fourth day the rising sun shall illuminate the pass through which our army may enter the Outer Realms. That dawn is upon us Brave Warriors, the way has been revealed at last and it is time to march forth. Muster your armies for today a vast new land is unveiled and King Eric has ordered that we conquer it in his name. The Outer Realms has begun.
The royal scribes have sharpened their quills and unstoppered their ink jars. The Kingdom’s League has begun today and they will be recording the progress of each Lord and Lady. Already they have noted some strong contenders and Chief Scribe Inkfingers is soon preparing his report for the King. Don’t get left behind because, the royal coffers will only be opened for those amongst you who achieve the greatest results. Send out your warriors and claim your rightful place in the King's Court.
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!
The great King Adelbert is dead and now his heirs squabble about who will sit on the throne of Berimond. Already their armies are gathering on the plains preparing for the coming slaughter. Will you be joining them in the Battle for Berimond today?
It would be wise to strike soon and not only defeat your opponents but claim the inheritance of the deceased King. For today there is a 150% Global Prime Time. Not only that but the bounty of Berimond will be available for the next few days as its treasures are sold to canny merchants and traders throughout the lands.
Eye of newt, and toe of frog, wool of bat, and tongue of dog, adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, lizard's leg, and owlet's wing, for a charm of powerful trouble, like a hell-broth boil and bubble. Halloween is soon upon the Kingdom and its spooky visitors can already be found in the Realms today.
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.
Proud Lords and Ladies of this realm,
Your liege King Eric has declared the foreign lands of the Outer Realms need to be conquered in his name and for his rightful cause! All conquerors who partake in this endeavor shall be granted the boon of additional wealth.
This Prime Time - by decree of King Eric - shall enable you to benefit from a 200% bonus, when making a purchase today between 21:00 and 21:30 (CEST)! But be aware: This offer will only be claimable in the Outer Realms during the aforementioned time!
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.

Muster your armies for today a vast new land is unveiled and King Eric has ordered that we conquer it in his name. The Outer Realms will soon begin.
We will make a small update to Empire: There will be a brief downtime between 13:00 and 15:30 today to fix some minor technical issues. This will also bring the Gold and Silver shop onlineand this will include the shop improvements we mentioned previously.
However, as we will have Nomads Invasion event before this update we have decided to revert the Nomads Event to the old reward system as we think that this is the best compromise while we wait. We would like to take this chance to apologize again for the incorrect deployment of the shop.
