As a mayor I will do my best to make sure that the city evolves, while helping its members reach their individual goals, and those who contribute towards the welfare of the city can expect extended support in return.Abigor Kolgrim

Drifgard will not focus on offensive PvP, instead it will have heavy focus on city defenses. During Exposition, additional defenses that are required will be built. The settlement will have its own NPC guards and any players who are willing to work as a guard, either full or part time are welcome. All guards will be paid and supplied with equipment accordingly. City protection will also come from nearby baronies that will be supplied with food in return.
Those who are looking for more PvP oriented gameplay can always sign up with Gladalian Military and have a home in Drifgard.
In addition: Every permanent resident will be required to have basic combat training in case of an emergency.
Currently it is hard to predict much about religion as there is limited information on the matter, however, Drifgard will follow Faedin religion, and have some buildings in support of that.
Ideally Drifgard will not ban any other religions, and while individuals will not be allowed to actively promote them, people are free to keep practicing other religions as long as they keep it to themselves and it does not harm locals. This includes being agnostic and being in a cult. However, if game mechanics will penalize heavily for having other religions or lack of main one, this may change and Faedin may be enforced more heavily. However, we won’t ever enforce religion for RP or any purpose unless it provides us with a tangible benefit to all citizens.
- Drifgard will not focus on RP, however it is also not against it, in the end I expect overall theme to vary from Light RP to No RP.
- Crimson Adventurers – Association for adventurers, travelers, cartographers, explorers and many others. Providing freedom to explore at your own pace and helping those that strive to push for new horizons.
- Dragon’s Tooth – Smithing guild that focuses on every aspect when it comes to crafting armor and weapons or working with metal. As such guild includes miners, tinkerers, carpenters and leatherworkers.
When it comes to Drifgard, guild does not exclude anything mentioned previously, but will most likely focus of supplying or crafting items that include wooden or leather parts (wooden shields, leather armor, hide armor, etc)
