Node at village stage.[3]

A village is the third stage of node advancement.[3]

At the Village Stage, the camp becomes a small frontier town. There are some permanent structures in place at this level, as well as the beginning of local Government. The Development Area feels permanent and lived in. You'll find buildings developed with more advanced materials, features such as stone and mortar, fences, and other common structures. The Village Stage will also unlock a Special Building that grants unique utility to its Node Type - Military, Economic, Divine or Scientific; we’ll share further details on those buildings in future entries in this series that cover each specific Node Type.[4]Margaret Krohn

Weiterentwicklung des Knotenpunkts

Die Staatsbürgerschaft sowie Aktivitäten von Nicht-Staatsangehörigen Spielern (Quests, Sammeln, Raiding, etc.) innerhalb der Einflusszone eines Knotenpunkts zählt zu dieser speziellen Weiterentwicklung des Knotenpunkts (Fortschritt).[5] Es gibt sechs Stufen der Weiterentwicklung des Knotenpunkts.

  1. Expedition (Wenige Stunden)
  2. Lager (Viele Stunden)
  3. Dorf (Ein paar Tage)
  4. Stadt (Viele Tage)
  5. Großstadt (Wenige Wochen)
  6. Metropole (Viele Wochen)
Konzeptionelle Illustration. Ein Knotenpunkt der sich im Einflussbereich eines fortgeschritteneren Knotenpunkts befinden, wird durch den fortgeschritteneren Knotenpunkt in seiner Entwicklung begrenzt.[6]

Die Weiterentwicklung eines Knotenpunkts gibt seinen einzigartigen Inhalt frei, was einen wachsenden Ring an benachbarten Knotenpunkten vom Fortschritt auf die nächste Stufe ausschließt.[7]

  • Die Knotenpunkte gelangen schnell auf die erste Stufe. Dies ermöglicht Dienstleistungen von NSCs wie Verkauf oder Banknutzung zum Lagern von Gegenständen.[8]
  • Je weiter der Knotenpunkt fortgeschritten ist, desto größer wird seine Einflusszone.[3]
  • Weniger fortgeschrittene Knotenpunkte (genannt Vassalen Knotenpunkt), die in den Einflussbereich eines fortgeschritteneren Knotenpunkts fallen, können immer noch XP gewinnen, müssen aber in einem niedrigeren Fortschrittsstadium bleiben als das des dominanten Knotenpunkts.[6]
  • Ein Knotenpunkt erhält XP von den Knotenpunkten innerhalb seines Einflussbereichs erst, wenn diese Knotenpunkte ihre Obergrenze erreicht haben.[6]
  • Spieler werden in Sicherheit gebracht, wenn sie sich während des Ausbaus der Knotenpunkte mit neu angelegten Objekten überschneiden.[9]
  • Bürger eines Knotenpunkts können zur Weiterentwicklung anderer Knotenpunkte beitragen.[10]
  • Der genaue Prozentsatz des Fortschritts durch den Erhalt von Gegenständen oder das Töten von Monstern wird nicht explizit bekannt sein, um ein "Ausspielen" des Systems zu vermeiden.[11]

Different people have different resources invested in nodes progressing and it would be a little "gamey" if you could know exactly what was necessary at that point because that would disincentivize people from participating.[11]Steven Sharif

Vassal nodes

Knotenpunkte greater than stage 3 (Village) enslave nearby nodes, converting them into vassal nodes.[12][13]

  • Vassal nodes must remain one node stage below their parent node.[12]
    • Neighboring nodes lower than stage 3 also block the growth of their immediate neighbors. This is intended to be tested in Alpha-1.[13]
    • Vassal nodes first apply any experience earned to their own deficit (see Atrophie des Knotenpunkts). It then applies excess experience earned to its parent node.[4]
    • If the parent node advances, the vassal is once again able to advance.[12]
  • Vassal nodes give excess experience to their parent node and may have their own vassals; so long as they fall within the parent node’s zone of influence.[12]
    • If a node is capped and is both a vassal and has its own vassals, any experience earned from itself or its Vassals is first applied to its own deficit. Experience beyond that is then sent to its parent node.[4]
  • Vassals are subject to the government, alliances, wars, taxes, and trade of their parent node, and are able to receive federal aid from them.[12]
  • Vassal nodes cannot declare war on their parent node or any of their vassals.[12]
  • Citizens of vassals are bound by the diplomatic states of the parent node.[12]

If a Node is a Vassal Node and is capped from advancing further, it first applies any experience earned to its own deficit (see Node Atrophy section), and then applies excess experience earned to its Parent Node. If the Parent Node advances and the Vassal is able to grow, it becomes uncapped. If a Node is capped and is both a Vassal and has its own Vassals, any experience earned from itself or its Vassals is first applied to their own deficit. Any experience beyond that is then sent to its Parent Node.[4]Margaret Krohn

Node elections

Once a node has reached Village stage there will be a one week cooldown period before node elections begin.[15]

  • This cooldown period allows players to establish citizenship at the village; which may require them to relinquish previous citizenship at another node.[15]
  • Following the initial cooldown, there will be a one week election process, then from that point on, elections will follow a monthly cadence.[15]

The village stage is a unique stage because that's when the government system comes online and all other stages past village there will have already been a cadence for the election system and it will follow that cadence, but after the initial village stage is completed there will be a one week period where players have an opportunity to establish citizenship at the village that also provides for the cooldown time that is- that would be present on players leaving another node to kind of participate in in this particular node leveling up. But that after that one week period then there will be a one-week election process and then from that point moving forward will be the one month cadence that the node experiences elections on.[15]Steven Sharif

Node elections occur on a monthly basis.[15][16]

Node governments and mayors are chosen through different methods according to the node's type.[3][12]


Buildings that offer goods and services, as well as purchasable housing are created when a node reaches village stage.[3]


Spielerbehausungen Type. Availability. Limit.
Wohnungen Instanced.[3] Village stage and higher.[25] One per server.[26]
Grundbesitz Open world.[3] Village stage and higher.[3] One per account.[26]
Statische Behausungen In-node.[3] Village stage and higher.[3] One per server.[26]


Players buy the deeds for housing from the node itself.[17] Players can also buy and sell properties from other players.[3]

  • Housing will have a base price that scales with the number of citizens in the node.[27]
  • The developers are considering an auction-based method for listing new properties that become available for purchase when a node advances.[29]
    • A grace period will occur before the housing becomes available for auction.[29]
    • Bids will then be accepted starting at a minimum reserve value that is based on the number of citizens in that node.[29]
    • At the end of the auction, the highest bidder will win the house.[29]
  • Statische Behausungen and apartments can be listed and sold to other players.[30][31]

There's no cap essentially in player originated sales. Those are determined essentially by supply and demand as it is within the game and there's no artificial barrier to how high that demand can go.[32]Steven Sharif

  • Housing ownership can default back to the node if the owner fails to pay their property taxes. A balance and penalties will be charged to the new purchaser of the home in the manner of a "foreclosure process".[27]
  • Players will not be able to exceed their allotment of housing in the game.[35]

This will allow players to transfer real property goods. This includes ... static housing, this includes apartments that they may own; and they can sell those because those will have a limited and finite quantity.[35]Steven Sharif

Rental and leasing concepts are currently under consideration.[35]

Some concepts that we have is going to be rental or leases that could be had allowing players to kind of lease a property for a period of time where they will have control rights over utilizing storage based on the area, controlling the furniture or access point; all that kind of stuff.[35]Steven Sharif

Housing benefits

Spielerbehausungen offers a number of benefits:[30][36]

  • Ability to claim citizenship to a node.[37]
  • Each different type of housing offers different benefits.[32]
    • Additional benefits are granted to home owners who are also citizens of that node.[32]
  • Ability to place furniture and other decor items.[38][39][40]
    • Houses will be empty when purchased. Players will need to place furnishings and decorations in them.[41]
    • Each size of player-owned housing determines how many decor items can be placed in it.[30]
  • Storage containers.[40][36]
    • Players must build and place these in their housing. There are restrictions on the grades of storage containers available in different types of houses.[40]
    • Different grades of storage containers have different inventory capacities.[40]
  • Handwerkskunst benches to craft furniture and other items.[39][36]
  • Prized items can be displayed within a house.[36]
  • Achievements and trophies may be displayed.[36]
  • Social activities.[36]
  • May provide proximity based bonuses.[36]


Karawanen facilitate the transfer of goods for players wishing to turn a profit.[43]

The caravan system is an open world PvP system that revolves around opportunity and risk. Karawanen facilitate the transfer of goods for players wishing to turn a profit.[43]

  • Caravans can transport goods for more than one player.[47]


Knotenpunkt-Belagerungen ermöglichen es Spielern, einen Knotenpunkt zurück zu setzen, seine Knotenpunkt-Entwicklung umzukehren und ihn letztendlich vollständig zu zerstören. Dies ebnet den Weg für die Neuentwicklung und den Zugriff auf die gesperrten Inhalte in den umliegenden Knotenpunkten. Aufgrund dieser Dynamik spielen politische Konflikte und Intrigen eine wichtige Rolle in der Struktur der Welt.[5]

Belagerte Knotenpunkte werden für die Angreifer keine leichte Herausforderung darstellen. Städte und Metropolen werden einen erheblichen Abwehrvorteil haben. [5] Automatische PvE Belagerungen können gegen Knoten eingeleitet werden, die aber nicht kontinuierlich aktiv sind. [50]

If you own a home in a node and you don't want to see that home destroyed, you need to defend that city![51]Steven Sharif


Legion monster coin events are common events that occur for Knotenpunkte up to the Village stage. This might include a horde of zombies rolling across the countryside finding something or someone to feast on. Players who wish to keep their advancements will need to be vigilant.[52]

Elite monster coin events occur for nodes that exist between the Village and Metropolis stages. This level of event would include something along the lines of a dungeon level bosses and mobs coming into the world to pillage and destroy specific centers of activity.[52]
