We are opening up Aristocratic Family applications for the World Progression System. Obviously, the map is currently filled, so it's hard to slot in new noble families. To bridge that gap, new "units" can participate as Aristocrats, wealthy families that generate an income and can spend and use that income to create troops or ships etc. The rules for application are below: You can apply as either a group or an individual, but groups are given preference. You need to have already had some positive interactions with the World Progression System. We do allow for newcomers to apply, but when reviewing, we need to have a good "feel" for what their long term plan is, and have faith that they won't just do the sitting game, hoarding money and not doing anything. Combining pre-existing Special Permissions with Aristocracy is complicated. We have a preference for mundane groups/persons, but are willing to consider Perm holders. If you get approved, your system income will be tried to your "invisible title rating". This is to keep things fair for the pre-existing entities in the system. During the next "season" of the World System, a new map region will be unlocked that should provide plenty of growing space for new entities. Any group can apply. Whether they are criminal, noble aspiring or just traders. We decline werebeast or vampire groups unless they are part of a bigger collective. How should you apply: Send in an application with your in-game username (and any past usernames of noteworthy use). Add a list of all your group members and their usernames. They don't immediately need to have characters, or even family members, they can also be your servants and guards. Write a rough draft description, where is the family from? What are the themes? What are their long term ambitions? What are their political leanings? What are their core strenghts? Write other details on your past interactions with the World System, or any other information you can give to "write to impress". Write with details, but try to be concise. We will let applications roll in every once in a while before considering them in batch. If you get accepted, you will receive a reply and we will contact you with the necessary steps and information for system entry. Those that are rejected can try again during the next assessment.
