Stake Your Claim – February 2023

 |  By 

Update (2/24)- A Thrilling Conclusion!

After a well fought weekend, we find ourselves in reflection of how far these kingdoms have come. Each with their own unique history, a kingdom presents itself not just as a world containing its players but as a tapestry of their victories– and losses.

To celebrate the longtime reigns of kingdoms 1214, 1173, and 1174, we created a family tree tracing their lineage three generations back. Can you remember which of these kingdoms you were on?

While 1214, 1173, and 1174 are no more, their players live on in kingdoms 1365 and 1366.

Though the weekend has come to pass, the battles continue. Time will tell who of the many kingdoms will reign in the future of Westeros.

May you receive the upper hand.

Initial Announcement (2/2)

The next Stake Your Claim (SYC) event will begin on Friday, February 17th!

Read on to find out the latest event iterations as well as which kingdoms will be paired up for this event!

What Is Stake Your Claim?

Soon, the allegiances in your kingdom and those in other kingdoms will embark on a new adventure. You will leave your current kingdoms behind as you look for new territory to stake your claim in.

When the event starts, your kingdom will compete with those in other kingdoms as your allegiances look for a new permanent home to conquer. Seats of Power in your home kingdom will be safe from combat during this time.

Make sure to check your upcoming event panel for the exact time at which the Stake Your Claim event will start.
