Beware of Night Riders

"Now don't make me say "Please" again, Mr VC, or else..."

They've been sending messages to members of late trying to recruit for their alliance. At least one member has already gone over, and while I don't mind if anyone wants to change alliances make sure to do your homework and find the one best suited for you (which, yes, includes Night Riders of course).

I'd be a little sad if you left but it's all for the best if it is what you feel is the best for you.

Any Vampires coming around?

(Bad Vampire Nation, no bite.)

Report if you are being scouted by any members of either New Order or the Vampire Nation immediately, thank you, as it seems they are fishing around looking for resources.

The Latest Update Notes from KoC

If you missed it in your inbox here's the latest update notes from the KoC staff.

Fifth City Released!
King Arthur has decreed that Lords and Ladies should continue their expansion with the realms of Albion, and has had his knights begin placing crests in the most dangerous of wildernesses. To build a Fifth City, players need to gather 4 Sir Percival’s Crests, 3 Sir Galahad’s Crests and 2 Sir Lancelot’s Crests, or purchase the crests (or the Deed itself!) from the Store, then turn in the Quest. Expand your empire, gather more Wildernesses, train more Troops and raise your Might! Get started on your Fifth City today!

Simplified New City Process
Speaking of new Cities, we’ve simplified the process for building new cities, removing some of the more complicated steps and designing a better system to building additional cities. No more sending resources and Supply Troops to your owned plain! Ready to start 5th City already? You’ll see the new system when you go to build it. Still working on an earlier city? Now you’ll have a better idea of what you need to get that city off the ground.

New Hourglasses
Thought the Divine Hourglass wasn’t mighty enough? Now there are two more levels of Hourglass above even the Divine level: Epic and Legendary. The Epic Hourglass will reduce a build or research time by 2.5 days, and the Legendary Hourglass will reduce a build or research time by 4 full days! Don’t want to wait to get those high end buildings built? Buy yourself some Epic and Legendary Hourglasses and get those buildings done today!

New Shop items
As part of the Fifth City launch, we’ve introduced the Lord’s Chest, which includes between 1 and 3 of each of the following types of Crests: Sir Galahad’s, Sir Lancelot’s and King Arthur’s. If you’ve got some of the Crests you need and just don’t want to wait, you can always buy a Chest and get some Crests! Haven't started collecting Crests yet? Now you can buy, the 3rd, 4th and 5th City Deeds outright and save. Also, get ahead of the competition with the Fifth City Chest which includes the 5th City Deed and a ton of hourglass to help you build your City faster!

Improved Crest Drop Rates
We have also turned up the drop rate for the three crests needed to build Fifth Cities. As a reminder, the Sir Percival’s Crests, Sir Galahad’s Crests and Sir Lancelot’s Crests drop from Level 8, 9 and 10 Wildernesses only, so even though the drop rates have been turned up, collecting these crests will still be a challenge.

Five day contest! (8/30/10 – 9/3/10)
For five days we are giving five lucky players five thousand Gems and a Fifth City Package when they build a new City. Build your Second, Third, Fourth, or Fifth City by September 3rd to qualify to win!

Bug Fixes:
March Troops interface now displays the correct Load Vacancy.

-Mercenaries performing Wilderness Defense are now correctly paid an hour's wage when they are first hired.
-Quests Rewards can now be turned in from any City, not just the City where the Quest was completed.
-Market Transaction Reports should now always show the correct amount sold.
-Resource production bonus from low level wilds should now always be correctly applied when conquered.

DianeKay's Final Message to Alliance

(It's dangerous out there, don't forget to take this with you)

(DianeKay) "I wanted to let you know I have become toooo busy to continue with my city, I have other cities on other domains and I need to let go of the two I have on this domain, would like to leave it up and running for members of THIS alliance to farm, will that still be possible if I abandon the cities?"

Unknown, but I guess we'll find out in time. Sorry, Dianekay, best of wishes and we'll miss you.

Are Your Wilds Being Attacked Repeatedly For No Reason?

Rumor going about that there may be a quick way to rack up crests, and that reason may be behind the multiple attacks (lazy alliances and all that out there). I'm presently looking into it right now, and if I get more info on it I'll post it up here for everyone.
