Learn about the Living World

The Living World is an interactive experience that unites the entire Conquest community around the globe, as they shape the world of Conquest and influence the lore and story. 

So what is the Living World? How will it work? Why do I care?

Fair questions one and all… except for possibly the last. We shall endeavour to answer them to the best of our ability.

The Living World is an interactive way for the player base of Conquest to influence the development and narrative of the world of Conquest itself.

When players visit the Living World site, they are confronted with an Interactive Map in which several map pins are active. By clicking on these map pins (often, but not always, associated with powerful and influential characters from the world of Eä) players can see what dilemmas or choices the character is currently faced with and what paths the character can choose to resolve them. After reading the information, the player is able to influence what decision the character ultimately makes by casting his or her votes. As these votes are cast, the tally for the chosen action will be updated live, so the players across the world will be collaboratively guiding the development of its background and lore thus shaping the future of Conquest.

Each player will have a number of votes determined by the RANK of his or her account. Account RANKS will be earned by interacting with the website by casting votes, participating in polls and online events, becoming a Vanguard, making e-shop purchases or sharing our content with friends on Facebook and other social media platforms. As the player’s account RANK increases, so will the number of votes he or she will accrue every week, as well as other perks which will range from access to limited edition miniatures all the way to getting their character and armies written into the lore of Conquest for posterity!

Players may choose to cast their votes however they wish. They could allocate ALL their VOTES in one NODE resolution or might instead chose to spread their votes across multiple NODES. Votes will refresh each week allowing players to see how the world is shaping before casting their votes again (or simply giving you a second chance to maximize your votes in that one all important decision). At the end of a TWO-WEEK period, the most popular NODES and their attendant characters will be locked, and their decision taken. For two weeks the selected characters and nodes will be unavailable as we update them moving their story along the path the players chose while they vote on another set of nodes and decisions on the Living World.

This is a huge and ambitious undertaking. We want the community to truly own and engage with the world and we hope to do so by truly making it THEIR world. As an added bonus, the Account Rank System will allow dedicated loyal players to benefit from their passion in more tangible ways, giving them access to unique products, prizes and discounts all for participating in developing our world together!
