    Samurai Banner

    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 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.

    A bold attack, a knife to the heart of our Kingdom! Foreign Lord and Ladies have overrun our outer defences 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 honour!

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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Dear Lords and Ladies,

    We are aware of today's problems and technical difficulties when it comes to the payout of our troop's rewards at the end of our most recent Outer Realms run.

    Sadly this payout suffered under a technical issue, whereas food wasn't accredited along with the troops that one obtained. We tried to freeze food as soon as possible and are currently evaluating the situation and are working intensively on a solution for you.

    Food has been frozen until 12:00 CET and we will keep you updated about any further progress in this regard as soon as we receive information about it.

    We deeply apologize for this inconvenience and thank you very much for your patience.

    Best regards,

    Your Empire Family

    Dear Lords and Ladies,

    We want to inform you that we prolonged the food consumption freeze - in light of our current Outer Realms reward issue - until 16:00 (4.00 PM) CET today.

    We hope that we can implement our solution by then and will inform you of how this will look as soon as we receive more information on that.

    Thank you very much for your patience.

    Best regards,

    Your Empire Family

    Dear Lords and Ladies, 

    We are still working on the solution and will therefore prolong the freeze of your food consumption until 18:00 CET (6:00 PM CET) today.

    We will come back to you, as soon as we received additional information on this matter.

    Best regards,

    Your Empire Family

    Dear Lords and Ladies, 

    We want to inform you that the tests of our solution have been completed and we will proceed with the following: 

    We will payout all the troops that you received from the Outer Realms rewards this morning and on top of that we will also grant you the same amount of defensive troops, as well as food to cover both amounts (offensive and defensive). This means that the food that you'll receive will not only supply your troop rewards but also the extra defensive ones and you shouldn't experience any desertions due to that. 

    We sadly cannot reimburse the troops that deserted on top of the troop rewards and would, therefore, suggest you approach our customer support in this regard in order to try and help you out with your individual losses. 

    We will start with this compensation between 17:00-18:00 CET today. We will of course only compensate the players that received the Outer Realms rewards and which lost troops due to them and this whole process will take approximately 30 minutes. 

    We once again apologize deeply for this inconvenient mistake and thank you very much for your patience in this regard. 

    Best regards,

    Your Empire Family

    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"

    Lords and Ladies,

    It’s been a long year and time has flown by so fast. The winter season is about to kick off and therefore we wish all of our fantastic players a wonderful winter holiday and an amazing start into the upcoming year.

    And what’s an even better way to celebrate this time of the year? Yeah, a nice gift for our beloved community. 

    This year’s present contains the Nutcracker’s Grotto decoration, 300 Gnomad Warriors, 300 Gnomad Archers, and 30.000 food. The gift is available from December 19th until January 7th for any existing or newly registered account above level 6. 

    Most of you will probably be spending the time with your loved ones and we’ll also have some time with our families and be back with full force once January rears its head.

    All the best!
