The Duchy of Wessex continues to recruit new players that are welcome to join us on our private server. Currently several other prominent guilds have joined us, and the fighting has been continuous and fun.

As an FYI - I anticipate that this thread will be replaced in the near future with a more official announcement.

The Duchy of Wessex and the Silver Sun Republic are, at the moment, playing on a private server where we can finalize our 'role' out (see what I did there).

If you are looking for a guild with
  • Practical role-play
  • Organized fighting and tactics (rather that the normal headless chicken style most employ)
  • A true, functioning Kingdom structure

Then check us out. Informational links in the original post.

Play continues on our server, with both guilds active in planning, building, and having fun.

If you are a guild looking to join a larger, organized kingdom approach to Life Is Feudal, or are an individual looking to join, stop by our forums and say hi. Alternatively, you can send me a PM.

What do you want out of a guild in LIF - MMO?

  • A guild with real structure?
  • A chance to be part of something larger?
  • The ability to craft in a protected environment?
  • Targets to hunt with a larger army to back you up when the $&!% guts the fan?
  • A living history that you can contribute to?
  • To be a merchant?
  • To be a soldier?
  • To be a friar?

In the Duchy Of Wessex you can fill all of these roles, some of these roles, or none of these roles as you seek your own path. A guide to our structure can be found here. There is also other paths you can choose, as long as it fits into our practical role playing style.

Send me a PM or stop by and visit our site for more information.

I think I shall start posting some bits from our introductory guide so that you can have a better understanding of what being a member of the Duchy of Wessex is all about.


ROYAL DEMESNE

At the pinnacle of our feudal society sits the King, His Majesty Manus Dei I, the creator and inspiration of our feudal universe. Ultimately all land within the kingdom belongs to him, called the Royal Demesne. The King will grant parcels of land to trusted followers as reward for their loyalty, military service and tax revenues.

SHIRES

A shire is the fief given to a lord. Each major clan in the kingdom would normally be a shire as recognition of the influence they wield. The number of members required to be considered a shire will vary according to the game in question. Wessex members are active in various game worlds and each of those form part of one single shire.

One of the questions I get asked a lot, either in private messages or in team-speak discussions, is the relationship between Wessex and Hyperion and how a new group would fit into the Kingdom of Hyperion.

This image may help to better explain the relationship.

This document came from the original Darkfall. Each of these Duchies (or their equivalent) were large guilds that officially joined The Kingdom of Hyperion.

Smaller entities that joined Hyperion typically joined as either fiefdoms or, in the case of the smaller guilds, one of the Duchies. In Wessex the leader of these small guilds became Thanes.

Do you have a smaller guild but want to be part of something larger? The Duchy Of Wessex has various ways for you to join our community. One example is that you could join (along with your friends) as a Thane.

Greetings,

We are still looking to recruit like minded players who love the theme we as a community offer.

We all know activity isn't as great as when we go into the beta, but join one of the best communities now and start to make a name for yourself in Wessex.

Thanks
