Today the Herald is pleased to sponsor an event that we hope will be the first of many such community building exercises. Three Dukes and their counts have volunteered to be part of a mock land selection that will help us as a community highlight the various issues that are likely to arise during Land Selection. For this event, the Herald generated a kingdom map with duchies and counties based roughly on Kingdom Four.

Today in Nirath we reached a significant milestone in our growth as a kingdom. 500 members have now registered on our census, while this is low compared to the probable thousands of players and NPCs that will inhabit our kingdom post launch it shows a significant growth over the two years that Nirath has run its census. As a special commemoration of this achievement, I present to you the 500th member and the first in our new series of community profiles:

While we, of course, understand the written and unwritten rules within our society I feel it unfair to future generations and to visiting foreigners to condense a native’s comprehension into a thousand words and so I present a series on The Five Estates of Nirath for you dear reader.
