This section serves both to record the rules for the Crisis of Nobles, as well as allow factions to apply for Great House status in the Survival World. The Great houses are a way for Factions to engage in lore-compliant competition for power in the continent of Essalonia, a chaotic land ruled by warring kingdoms all fighting over the crown of Essalonia. What is expected of Thread owners: You must notify on your thread if your faction’s leader changed You must notify on your thread if your faction disbanded You must notify on your thread if your faction merged with another faction (new Great House application required) You must notify on your thread if your faction changed its name How the Application Process works: You post a Great House application in a new thread Your faction needs to have at least 5 members Your faction needs to have at least 100 regals in your faction bank Your faction base has to consist of medieval or fantasy styled buildings The faction leader’s character name is mandatory, as this is the name that will appear in the faction lore progression (You don’t need an approved RP character sheet for this. Proper name is enough.) Your faction’s background story is optional, but required if Lore canonization is wanted. Staff will review the application and judge if you are eligible to become a Great House. You will receive feedback if staff rejects your application. If your application is successful, staff will monitor your faction announcements more closely and will try to include your faction’s actions into the Faction Progression posts. You are also able to declare war on other Great Houses and Vassals and will compete for power in Essalonia. To submit an application, use the Create Application thread button.
