    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.

    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!

    Brave Warriors,
    There will be a very short downtime today to facilitate server maintenance. This will occur between 09:00 and 11:00 CET. Thank you for your patience while we perform this maintenance.

    Regards,

    Great conflagrations mar the landscape as smoke bellows into the sky casting a great yellow haze over the land. The peasants cower in their hovels as the Lords and Ladies wage war against each other hoping that the flames are kept at bay by their noble defenders.

    This Saturday, January 11th,  from 10:05 CET for twenty-four hours we will be turning the No Burning Global Effect on. During this time it will not be possible to burn buildings in an opponent's castle. We eagerly await your feedback on this new effect.

    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 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!

    Lords and Ladies,

    There is currently a bug affecting travel times in the Outer Realms. We have prioritised the issue and we are working on fixing this as soon as possible. This stems from upgraded stables. If you don't upgrade the stables the bug remains relatively benign and is only a display issue. All travel times work as intended you are simply shown the wrong time. Where the real problem lies comes once the stable is upgraded. This has a negative effect on travel time.

    This will not be resolved in time for the next run of the Outer Realms event. Rest assured that we are working away on a solution. What we recommend is that the stable is not upgraded during the course of the event. This will have a negative impact on your travel times. If the stable remains at level 1 you will only experience incorrectly displayed time, all travel however will be calculated as normal.

    In recognition of the problem with the event we will be providing each player with a goodwill package of 100 Fast Travel Feathers at the event start. We hope that this somewhat ameliorates the difficulties ensuing from not being able to upgrade your stables.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Your Empire Family

    Lords and Ladies,

    We have brought your feedback to the Studio about the 'No Buring Global Effect'. As the vast majority of the feedback was highly negative we have decided to not use the 'No Burning Global Effect' for the foreseeable future. Thanks again for your feedback in regards to this matter and all others.

    Regards,

    Your Empire Team

    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.

    As some Castles started already aflame we have decided to reset today's Outer Realms event. Please be patient with us while we bring the event back online. If you have purchased a Castle we would ask you to approach Support for a refund.

    As you already know the Outer Realms have been started with existing build up by mistake and we shut down the servers right after.

    The Outer Realms is back now and running as intended, but some players paid already on the server and/or aquired a preset castle. GG is currently evaluating options, but most likely refund all purchases made and also book the rubies spend for preset castles back soon.

    Dear lords and ladies,


    As you might know, we had some issues today with the start of our Outer Realms event. 

    We'd like to help out players who experienced that and will, therefore, proceed with the following: 


    Every player who joined the Outer Realms today and who bought a preset castle before joining will get the rubies that he used for the purchase of said preset castle reimbursed. 


    In case players have purchased something with rubies while being in the Outer Realms then the rubies used will be reimbursed as well. All other players who were similarly affected but haven't joined our reset Outer Realms by now will receive this by the beginning of next week (~ on Monday). 


    We thank you for your patience and we deeply apologize for this interruption. 


    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.

    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.

    Lords and Ladies,

    As we have had a few questions about our offers changing we felt that it was high time to address them! You will have noticed that we have removed the Chest Offers and changed the contents of some of our packages. A lot of what was in the Chest Offers is available now in our shop. We have moved these to streamline our delivery of offers to you the player. Over time we will be increasing the variety and volume of offers in our webshop. 

    During this move we have also separated the way we deliver packages. Now you will receive either rubies via the ruby shop or items via the items shop rather than both. We did this so that a player can more easily get what they want without having to buy items or rubies that they are not interested in. 

    This change on offers will stay for the time being, but please feel free to provide us with feedback on these changes via our communication channels.

    Regards,

    Your Empire Team
