Land claims are sections of in-game terrain that are owned either by individual players or by guilds. There are three types of claims in the game: Personal Claim, Town Claim and Realm Claim.
Erecting a Monument
Building Private Monument
In order to create a Private Monument, right click on the tile, select Authority → Claim Land → Private Monument, which will mark your claim territory. In Life is Feudal: MMO You need to have 1x copper coins in your inventory to begin the process and further amount of copper coins to feed the monument. In order to get copper coins, you need to trade with the Crown at the trading post. Detailed instructions on copper coins aquisition can be found here
Building Guild Monument
- In order to create a Guild Monument in Life is Feudal: MMO, the player needs to be a leader of a guild (Order) that consists of min. 10 players. Once that requirement is met, right click on the tile, select Authority → Erect the Monument, which will mark your claim territory. Interacting and managing the guild is done via Monument (Right click on Monument, Authority → Manage the Claim/Worship the Claim) and a website guild panel in Life is Feudal: MMO.
- A new monument must be placed 102 tiles from any server border, 124 tiles from any guild monument, and at least 22 tiles away from any personal claim. There is a two tile buffer for claims that you have permissions to as well.
- Only guild members can interact with objects on claim territory, although personal ownership overrides claim permissions (you can ride your horse onto any claim, unmount and have 2 minutes to get back on it). If you see any intruders - use Trespassers! ability and they will be assigned as criminals.
- Claim prevents decay on any objects on its territory.
- To see claim territories - press F4, ctrl-F4 will enable permanent vision.
- Radius of claim territory depends on the durability of Monument, its level, and its support points.
- There are four levels of Monuments - from basic to Glorious, which differ in claim radius and requirements for sacrifices. You will always start with a basic Monument; other levels are reachable through sequential upgrades.
- To maintain your claim you need to sacrifice items, which can be done through 'Manage the Claim' (if you are the leader) or 'Worship the Monument' (if you are a member). There is a sacrifice window and button in the abilities windows. Place items in that window and select Sacrifice.
- Every item has its own price. Monuments of different levels have different minimal item price, which they will accept.
- You can sacrifice different items in order to get support points for a Monument. Sacrificing is very important; lack of support points will degrade 'Monument' or even erase it with the claim. The bigger is monument, the more complex items you have to sacrifice.
- To upgrade 'Monument' you should maintain it with support Points cost +1 for every maintenance (which happens every night). You will see growth of your Monument via progress bar in 'Manage the Сlaim window', once the progress bar is full, you can upgrade the Monument to the next tier by selecting it.
- The Leader of the Guild can destroy any object on Claim territory (Right click, Authority->Destroy Object).
- The Leader can also give permission to destroy any objects on Claim.
Guild Claim Size and Type
Any guild, regardless of their status as a "Kingdom" or "Vassal" will be able to obtain the maximum size, tier 4 monument.
Guild Claim Permission System
Each claim allows extensive modification of claim permissions for players set by the claim owner or guild leader:
- Guild claim only - Rights for each of guild roles (count, viscount, baron, knight, reeve, peasant, recruit)
- Rights for standing types (war, hostile, neutral, friendly, ally)
- Individual permission for specific guilds
- Individual rights for specific characters
- In Life is Feudal: Your Own, Guild and Claim management is done via the Monument and console commands
- In Life is Feudal: MMO, Guild and Claim management is done via the Monument and the website.
During judgment hour (YO) the "Realm" claim becomes vulnerable to attack from guilds that have declared war on your guild. Activities such as trespassing will not affect their alignment and they can loot and destroy any object/building on the "Realm" claim.
For more information, see the Judgment hour (YO) page.
- A plot of land that is the private property of a certain character, all movable and unmovable objects within that type of claim are protected from any damage and can only be used by the owner of that claim or other players that have received access rights from the owner.
- In the event of a war between claim owner's guild and attacker's guild, objects on a personal claim may be used and damaged.
- Trespassing on a personal claim can be punished by a loss of 1 alignment point. Note: There is no delay between when you call 'Called for Trespassing' and when the -1 alignment is applied. In order to be called for trespassing, the owner of the claim must use one of two commands to mark an individual as a trespasser, or an AoE effect that may mark all individuals not marked as allies/friends as trespassers.
- Guild claims may extend or grow over personal claims, which will then control the personal claim. When guild claims are vulnerable from war conditions, any personal claim on the guild claim will also be vulnerable.
The "Town" claim is where a guild will have most of its buildings and valuables. Everything on the town claim is safe and cannot be looted or destroyed.
The town claim always has a radius of 20. Total area is 1256 tiles.
- A plot of land that is the property of a guild and its leader. All movable and unmovable objects within that type of claim are protected from any damage and can only be used by the players that have received access rights from the Guild Leader. Guild Leader can also grant and revoke access to the claim to his allies. Objects inside the claim can be moved and damaged during Judgment Hour.
- In the event of a war, objects within that claim cannot be used or damaged, unless it is during an active stage of an on-going siege.
- Trespassing on a town claim cannot be punished with an alignment loss, but still will turn a trespasser into a criminal.
- Land claims only effect items or structures placed on the surface, and although trespassers cannot break ground on the land claim, tunnels that begin outside of the claim can be extended underground into the claim area.
- 0 tiles with a Tier 1 guild monument at the beginning and maximum 15 radius in addition to town claim.
- Approx. 2,500 tiles total area (Town claim area is excluded): Circular areas with a diameter of 90 tiles (45 tile radius) from Tier 2 guild Fine Monument
- Approx. 7,500 tiles total area (Town claim area is excluded): Circular areas with a diameter of 120 tiles (60 tile radius) from Tier 3 guild Great Monument
- Approx. 18,850 tiles total area (Town claim area is excluded): Circular areas with a diameter of 170 tiles (85 tile radius) from Tier 4 guild Glorious Monument
- A plot of land that is the property of a guild and its leader. All movable and unmovable objects within that type of claim are protected from any damage and can only be used by the players that have received access rights from the Guild Leader. Guild Leader can also grant and revoke access to the claim to his allies. Objects inside the claim can be moved and damaged during judgment hour.
- Trespassing on a realm claim can not be punished with an alignment loss, but still will turn a trespasser into a criminal.
Guilds situated next to each other are competing for Realm Claims. A guild with more support points in their Monument and with a higher level of the Monument has a higher pressure. In such case, the result is that all guilds situated next to each other with their claims colliding have less realm claim lands in the area where they collide with each other and they all suffer some losses. Once they have an equal level, they will affect each other with equal pressure. Town claim zone is never affected by this mechanic and always occupies same space (20 tile radius). This means that it is better to have your most valuable assets in the City (Town) Claim, protected by high walls, while less valuable resources, farms etc are on the Realm Claim.
Rules that allow destroying Claims differ on Red Worlds and Green Worlds. Refer to this part of Major Update guide for details on the new game mechanics.
