Changes to our game database have been made to prevent a rare issue where a player who was active right as the server reset could become corrupted. This happened to a player on S2 recently, and we had to restore his file from a recent backup, but this should not occur again.

11/25/2017

Congratulations to Ramza ($200 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Gzus2 (Dun) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Stormcrow2 ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Dec 30th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

11/9/2017

The effect of forge gem approbations is now reflected in player power index. Note that in addition to providing everything the Dragon Essences do, each rank up of a gem approbation after the first slightly increases the original effects ((Attack or Cast or Durability) and Defense rating) in addition to providing the special, mysterious gem effects.

11/6/2017

The max ash holding capacity has been raised from 500k to 1 million.

10/29/2017

Congratulations to Orcmashk ($200 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Shadowhawk (Sur) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Warlocklegend ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Nov 25th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

10/10/2017

The Surface Hermit can now combine the powers of many Forge elements into one, allowing players to get around inventory space restrictions on elemental tier upgrades. Give him gold to discuss.

9/30/2017

Congratulations to Cubsown56 ($200 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Everclear (Sky) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Sauron ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Oct 28th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

8/29/2017

Players can type /settled to see how many Forge KDs they are on record as having settled. This is the value that determines how hard it is to settle further KDs.

8/26/2017

Congratulations to Henry ($200 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Masterbowski (Hev) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Megatron I ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Sept 30th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

8/8/2017

The SoSe deal got even better - players will now receive between half and full ash value of existing purchased upgrades when buying the SoSe package. This includes all versions of Aqua Lungs, Fyre Rock, Platinum Ore, Templar, RDADMS Lessonbook, Scroll of Forbidden Rights, Beast Bane, and the Skill Potencifier. If you purchase the SoSe package for a player who already has SoSe, you get ash for all of those items.

Max ash has been raised to 500,000

The Ash Collector can now summon private random Dragon Eaters. Hint: 1,999,999,993

7/29/2017

Congratulations to Obsidian Night ($200 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Raybone (For) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Sauron ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Aug 26th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

7/16/2017

Now when cracking ashen rocks from making in-game purchases, you will have the chance to lower your recorded number of settled Forge kingdoms. You will begin flipping a coin, for a maximum number of tries equal to your current recorded number of settled Forge kingdoms. If you get heads, you will stop flipping and have your number reduced by 1, making it easier to settle. If you get all tails, you're out of luck.

The drop rate of Forge gems was reduced by 33% several days ago, but we have returned it to its previous rarity, the same as it was at the very beginning.

7/11/2017

Name swapping is available once again. The recorded number of settled Forge kingdoms remains attached to the name, preventing the exploit of using name swaps to more easily settle Forge KDs.

7/8/2017

Super Relics and DDDs are now for sale via the Buy Items page. Each come with at least 1 EEoST worth 999 runes.

7/3/2017

The Rune Keeper now offers a new item.

7/2/2017

The automatic refresh rate of the game has been greatly enhanced. Your client should update very quickly as long as you have done some action in the past 15 minutes, resulting in more quickly seeing events such as beast spawns or Inquest messages, etc.

To address concerns regarding players using intelligent macros to move them immediately to beast spawns, we have changed the way beasts spawn slightly. Rather than announcing the exact location the beast has spawned, a location near the beast (1 square away vertically, horizontally or diagonally) will be announced. Players using auto teleport commands will be ported directly to the announced spot where they will then have to search the nine possible locations (including the existing square in the case the beast did not move).

The client has been optimized further and uses a more advanced means of communicating with the server which will not produce any clicking noises, cursor blinking, or refreshes. These changes should enhance gameplay and be compatible with all browsers.

A minor bug where the skill names were not showing has been fixed.

The prize for winning an Inquest has been increased to $200 in EEoAs.

This month's plex award will be given to the king in the Forge with the largest visible perfect square plex. There will not be a size minimum on this plane to win like on the others.

7/1/2017

Random beast spawn rate has been buffed.
The drop rate for Dragon Essences has been buffed.

6/30/2017

A new plane now exists: The Forge.
On this new plane the mechanics of kingdom ownership are very different. Here are the differences we are willing to elaborate on:
-All kingdom assets (other than Runes) are worth 1 million times more than normal.
-All kingdom assets cost more to purchase as their total goes up.
-Kingdoms here cannot be traded.
-Each hour when interest is gained, there is a chance to harvest a very rare element. This chance increases slightly based on the amount of teasury.
-Certain locations here that are closer to the source of riches have bonuses toward interest or element harvesting.
-Kingmanship increases the interest bonus if present, but does not affect the kingdom in any other way.
-Three new skills exist which increase element harvesting bonuses.
-Interest gained here is not affected by normal bonuses. It starts out very high but decreases as teasury increases, making them more profitable than normal kingdoms only for players without extreme wealth.
-Settle kingdoms WISELY. Attempting to settle costs gold, and the chances of being successful decrease exponentially each time you successfully settle a kingdom PERMANENTLY, making it extremely difficult to own more than a handful of kingdoms on this plane.
-Populations consume less food.
-Due to the nature of the higher and varying resource costs, many kingdom management / commands will not function in the Forge
-Less morale is lost in the Forge from guard slayings. Kings should still take care to rune up.
-Forge kingdoms cannot be quaked directly, however, they will still be considered under major assault and have army and fortification penalties if attacked by someone who has quaked.
-Paying serfs is 20x more costly, bribing them is 50x times so.
-Overthrowing a kingdom via war will cause the KD to be occupied by NOBODY as opposed to the attacker to prevent using it as a settling exploit. Recovering the conquered kingdom's resources will require you to settle it, which in itself is expensive. War on this plane is designed to occur mainly between neighbors battling over high bonus territory. Fighting on foreign soil is expensive.
-All war activity in the Forge will be announced server wide, regardless of girlfriend bonuses.
-There is a significant gold and experience bonus from creatures in the Forge. It has been buffed from its original amount at release - Exp bonus is greater than Hel and gold bonus is greater than Hev.

6/24/2017

Congratulations to Drunken Froggie ($100 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Cady (Hel) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Orcmashk ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for July 29th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

New plane scheduled to be released this Friday!

6/21/2017

Damage players deal to the new beasts has been increased.

5/27/2017

The Beast Noobane can now be used on the two new beasts since they are surface spawns.

4/29/2017

Congratulations to The Black Goose ($100 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Shadowhawk (Sur) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Megan Fox ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for May 27th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

4/27/2017

Some client improvements have been made. Image mouseovers have been fixed. Surface chat is now grey, the security checks will be easier on mobile devices and the troublesome alert popups will no longer be an issue on mobile either. Also a /sus command has been added. Thank you to player contributions and suggestions that helped us to make these comfort changes.

4/21/2017

Using an account key to recover a password will now reset the password to something new instead of recovering it. Scammers were using this feature hoping victims would change the password before changing their key so they could recover the new password for themselves using the key.

4/5/2017

The next patch is planned for June. A new and special plane will be added to Race War Kingdoms.

3/25/2017

Congratulations to Fritztacular ($100 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Everclear (Sky) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Henry ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Apr 29th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

3/23/2017

Two new beasts have been added. Killing them unlocks a repeatable quest which allows you to gain new powers.

Beast spawn rates have been increased for the more rare beasts.

There is no longer a 30 minute timeout for logged characters.

3/16/2017

Winning poker pots is now anonymous. This will allow players to make raises and win hands and steal ash from semi-afk players without making enemies.

A /beast command has been added that will display all the beasts you've killed that month to help you know what you can and can't still attack.

3/13/2017

Tops lists have been cleared.

2/25/2017

Congratulations to Black Knight ($100 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Masterbowski (Hev) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Mauce ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Mar 25th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

2/14/2017

The timing mechanism RWK uses for client/server synchronization has been upgraded which should prevent the vast majority of missing chat messages that some people were noticing.

2/13/2017

We've changed the random number generator of RWK to exist in a persistent state. This is a more accurate approximation of psuedo-randomness and also a performance enhancement for the server.

1/28/2017

Congratulations to Jon Snow ($100 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Cady (Hel) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Mauce ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Feb 25th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

12/24/2016

12/24/2016

The security checks will now have more contrast so you should not need to strain as much solving them.

12/18/2016

For the past week or so, S1 especially has been experiencing a lot of lag spikes. We're happy to admit that we've traced what we believed was an issue with hard drive performance down to a bug with the RWK sync method hanging on corrupted client requests. We will continue to monitor the situation to make sure it is actually resolved.

We are bringing back the RWK Swimsuit competition! You can set your swimsuit picture under options (we encourage you *not* to use your real photo) and players can see your swimsuit image by clicking your name three times or by using the /s command manually. Votes for your swimsuit picture will net you some ash, but we've reduced the amount of votes that give significant ash to lower the chance of exploitation.

12/10/2016

Kingdoms without owners will now show up as white on the colored map. This will help people find empty areas to settle. We recommend settling those areas little by little, so your activity doesn't show up blatantly on a daily map update.

Free Fortify relic (/fr) now gives treasury in addition to fortification.

The 10 days Templar and Access package now comes with two Free Fortify relics to help new players begin building KDs.

Tecton's ability to reduce the effectiveness of runes via aftershock (not the initial use) has been nearly doubled.

The amount of runes lost when a KD is overthrown has been reduced to 80% (from 90%). Note: Kingdoms of kings with more than 1500 kingdoms will not lose any runes when overthrown. See this.

12/8/2016

Two centuries-old bugs are believed to have been fixed: beasts that disappear without having been killed and ghost beasts that are not there but refuse to be removed from the battle list. Let us know if you find evidence of the contrary. Note, you still need to battle the existing ghosts beasts once for them to be removed from the lists.

11/30/2016

Capture even more old RWK nostalgia: Name swaps are now available for a reduced price of $20 via mail order and PayPal (refresh the order page). We will even delete banned characters to free up names for swaps in most cases. E-mail help@racewarkingdoms.com if you have questions.

11/29/2016

The first ever RWK Cyber Tuesday special is here! We are bringing back the SoSe package, and it's juicier than ever. You now can get a DD and a Goblin Head which makes it roughly $1,000 worth of purchases if bought separately. Hit F5 (or ctrl-F5 if necessary) while on the order page to refresh it if you don't see the SoSe package available. Available through PayPal as well as mail order, however, PayPal orders are restricted to 1 SoSe package per week per PayPal account.

We have also changed the way the soft cap works: rather than reducing exp gained at level 750 it will only kick in at the last 500 levels from the current cap.

11/26/2016

Congratulations to Lilsamurai ($100 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Shadowhawk (Sur) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Lilsamurai ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Dec 24th (yes, XMAS) at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

5/28/2016

The S2 Inquest and S1 rewards were interrupted tonight due to a DDoS attack, likely originating from botters angry for having recently been banned. Rest assured, we are taking steps to help mitigate the efficacy of these attacks in the future. The S2 Inquest has been rescheduled for Jun 4th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time). We are sorry about the inconvenience, but remember that it is a good thing when botters are frustrated and retaliating. It means our anti-botting measures are working.

Congratulations to Cubsown56 ($100 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Everclear (Sky) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Porn Star ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Jun 25th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

5/19/2016

The RWK internal database has been modernized. Previously it was a crude beast, lacking proper synchronization and using recent backups to recover from occassional errors. It now operates under conditions that should make zone resets and player rollbacks a thing of the past, barring actual hardware failure. And we have local and remote backups in place to deal with catastrophic hardware failure and natural disasters.

5/15/2016

Some users are experiencing lag (due to some keep-alive oddities that are forcing a new connection repeatedly) when using the https SSL encrypted address. You can use a direct connection to RWK1: http://208.100.40.136/ or RWK2: http://208.100.40.137/ for a direct, but unsecure connection that should not have these issues.

5/13/2016

We are currently in the process of migrating to a new, far-superior network. Players especially in Europe will have much better pings to our servers when migration has completed. Expect substantial downtime today, however, as we transfer the database.

5/5/2016

To further limit the effect of potential third-party botters, only the actual kingdom owner can use the /pe command. Kings must now embezzle their own kingdoms.

5/4/2016

Security checks can now be triggered when playing poker. Any botting activity will result in bans for poker alts as well as mains if these security checks are repeatedly failed, moving forward.

4/30/2016

Congratulations to Natalya Simonova ($100 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Masterbowski (Hev) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Natalya Simonova ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for May 28th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

4/26/2016

A massive amount of bannings has taken place on S2, following the recent security check update which revealed a very active botter. This person and those who used his "services" were banking on us only banning the chars linked to the IPs of the bots themselves, and were careful to keep those bots running macros on separate IPs. They failed to completely isolate the bots from other data that clearly showed who the characters belonged to, and the ban wave began, consuming anyone who shared characters with the bot's owner. Many will claim they had no idea that their bezzer was botting, but that is not an argument that will absolve them of guilt, when they repeatedly watched as the chars bezzing their kingdoms got banned for botting and replaced with new ones, and did not seem to care, so long as the money was coming in.

3/26/2016

Congratulations to Deacon Frost ($100 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Cady (Hel) for winning the $100 credit Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the brawl winner Uber Evil ($50). The next Inquest is scheduled for Apr 30th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

Kingdom tax will no longer affect people who are under level 1,000 in order to help new players farm on surface.

1/1/2015

The kingdoms of banned players will now automatically be purged when you walk them. Happy New Year!

12/29/2014

Never miss an Inquest again! Android users can download the "Glitchless Notifier" app, now available at the Google Play Store. This app allows you to configure (or easily disable completely) the types of notifications you want to receive from Glitchless games, then to receive alerts when they occur regardless of whether the app is running. We know a good portion of our gamers use iOS instead of Android devices, and we do have plans of creating an app for that as well, provided the Android app is well received.

Corrections have been made to the initial page to allow for character creation, password changing, and password recovery on non-IE browsers. Also, RWK server 2 is now available directly via IP again (http://66.135.42.154/), in order to play where they may filter game sites. Server 1 is accessable as always via http://209.15.226.250/

6/1/2014

Somehow... someway... three of our four servers have died in the past 3 days, all except for RWK1. RWK2 will be down while we work to restore data from the hard drives. RWK1 will likely need to be moved to new hardware as well, and since we are afraid to reboot the server since that seems to initiate these odd near simultaneous hardware failures, we are not going to be doing daily resets or map upates until that time.

Due to the lower population and huge credit prizes from the Inquest the player market for credit has greatly devalued to worth of RWK credit and items. Tonight's Inquest will have the normal rewards, however, after tonight victories in the Inquest will be for prestige, not for profit. Only the plex winner and Inquest winner will receive credit prizes of $100. The Inquest winner can instead choose the 3.2GHZ computer while we still have them in stock. There are currently 2 remaining. Players will still receive the 3500 ash for each victory in the Inquest and Brawl winner will get $50 credit. The amount of beasts in the invasion will now be scaled based on the amount of players online.

2/18/2009

Race War Kingdoms has been relocated to the same Virginia data center where Nodiatis is hosted. Though we are using the same high quality bandwidth as before, this is a more central location that connects to more major internet backbones and will be better for most users. The servers have also been greatly upgraded with a doubling of processor power and memory. This should help during the busy beast invasions after the Inquests.

Several important updates have been made to the game, they can be found on the forums.

5/27/2008

RWK now has an official forum for discussion, auctions, etc. The link should appear at the very bottom of the page labeled NEW FORUMS.

5/8/2008

If you are experiencing problems getting to Server 2 we apologize. We are correcting the DNS issue. You can use a direct link in the mean time: http://76.74.147.179

4/26/2008

Congratulations to Hopilus (3.2GHz Computer System or 750 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Cady (Southeast Hell - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Rectal Ranger ($150), Grimreaper ($100), Clint ($100), and Cwadarkone ($100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for May 31st at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

4/13/2008

As you can tell the server move is complete. Inevitably due to the new location some people have slightly higher pings, however, RWK is not a first person shooter and the most important part is that you have steady, reliable connection and we believe we now have that for the vast majority of users. You will notice that the /t command now shows central time. This is purposeful but should not impact your gameplay but just note if you use RWK time to determine when the Inquest is it will now be at 17:00. Also the daily updates on the two servers are spaced apart by 30 minutes.

4/6/2008

We are planning on moving both RWK servers later this week, probably Thursday or Friday. This will result in extended downtime lasting hopefully only until Saturday but possibly until Monday. The servers will then be located in Miami on premium Peer1 bandwidth. We hope this will eliminate the occasional lag spikes that have occured in the past. This will not fix lag associated with poor internet connections, however, so if you lag all the time that's probably not going to change for you. European and even far East users may end up with lower latency, however, our main goal is eliminating packetloss.

3/30/2008

Congratulations to Lord Ramza (3.2GHz Computer System or 750 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Iaulus (Southeast Heaven - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Ksy Ghan ($150), Clint ($100), Jadedmyst ($100), and Stormcrow2 ($100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for April 26th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

3/29/2008

Starting at tonight's Inquest the entire Inquest will be single elimination and both winners and losers will receive 1,000 ash more than before per fight. This will increase the chance of a non-regular winning the Inquest as well as increasing the importance of using your poker cards when dueling.

Starting next month the only 1 plane per month will be eligible to have a plex winner. Since a dungeon plex is likely to win this month (like always), the next month only a hell plex will be eligible, the next month only a heaven plex, then a sky plex, etc and the cycle will continue. This will minimize the impact of single plane dominance and make all RWK planes matter.

Also we are working with our host to divert all traffic off of the MZIMA network which we believe to be the cause of the lag and packetloss. You can tracert racewarkingdoms.com to see if your current route goes through MZIMA as this would explain the lag you've been experiencing.

3/27/2008

The amount of lag has been unacceptable these past few months and we believe we have isolated the problem network. We are in the process of changing the network RWK uses for bandwidth.

3/24/2008

Name swaps are no longer available due to possible kingdom exploits.

3/8/2008

Terms of Use updated.

2/23/2008

The next Inquest is scheduled for March 29th at 6:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

1/27/2008

Congratulations to Cooldude3000 (Grandmaster Bowman - 3.2GHz Computer System or 750 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Unfair Destiny (Midwest Dungeon 60x60 - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Heroicfool (Master Magician - $150), Lady Calimar (Master of Arms - $100), Oddbin (Master of Arms - $100), and Lardinho (Grandmaster Bowman - $100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for Feb 23rd at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

New Monk and Vamp PvP buffs: Master of Fists innate mesmerization resistance has been increased from 5% to 20%. Bloodletter and Blood Tyrant innate voidance resistance has been increased from 3% to 20%. The 3/29/2003 announcement in the archives has been updated to reflect this change.

1/26/2008

Some players have noticed still having corruption after dropping off the 1000+ Club list. We have instated a daily check to prevent this from occuring for more than 24 hours after dropping off the list.

12/29/2007

Congratulations to Black Knight (Grandmaster Bowman - 3.2GHz Computer System or 750 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Cooldude3000 (Southwest Dungeon 81x81 - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award.

The next Inquest is scheduled for January 26th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

11/27/2007

There have been occasional periods of extreme game lag and we are aware of the issue. We are working with our bandwidth provider to get this problem resolved. If our current provider cannot eliminate these periods of lag we will change providers, but we will not allow your gaming experience to be continuously interrupted.

11/24/2007

Congratulations to Hannibal (Grandmaster Bowman - 3.2GHz Computer System or 750 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Rid (Northwest Dungeon 81x81 - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Unfair Destiny (Master of Fists - $150), Iaulus (Master Magician - $100), Todders (Master Magician - $100), and Hannibal (Grandmaster Bowman - $100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for December 29th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

11/16/2007

Working with PayPal we have determined what was causing some online orders to become backed up and delayed. Purchases through PayPal will be working more quickly now and should arrive within a few minutes of placing the order. As always you should e-mail ordersracewarkingdoms.com if you have any problems with your order.

10/27/2007

Congratulations to Ehlmaris (Theurgal Divinator - 3.2GHz Computer System or 750 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Cooldude3000 (Southwest Dungeon 81x81 - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Oddbin (Master of Arms - $150), Chaos Heretic (Master of Fists - $100), Lardinho (Grandmaster Bowman - $100), and Chaos Heretic (Master of Fists - $100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for November 24th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

10/3/2007

In celebration of Oktober the Tradeskill Manifesto and Scepter of Annulment have been re-added to the buy items page.

9/29/2007

Congratulations to Raybone (Theurgal Divinator - 3.2GHz Computer System or 750 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Unfair Destiny (Midwest Dungeon 71x71 - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Ehlmaris (Theurgal Divinator - $150), Oddbin (Master of Arms - $100), Zone (Master of Fists - $100), and Kingoforge (Theurgal Divinator - $100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for October 27th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

9/21/2007

Threatening other players with nuking may be part of RWK, however, attempting to extort them for real-life money is strictly prohibited. Anyone found to be doing this will be banned. We encourage all our players to have enough backbone to not give in to the threats of other players. Nuking a properly built plex is expensive and most would-be extortionists don't want it to come to that.

Apparently the 7/5/2005 announcement has been forgotten. Here it is again: Character sharing and trading is no longer allowed. We will not be actively seeking out and punishing those who break this rule, but if you auction that you are selling a character, or e-mail us complaining that your clicker stole your character or that you were scammed in a character transaction you will be banned for failing to follow the rules. These rules are for your protection.

9/11/2007

The Trivial Gold/Kingdom Filtering option will be automatically set to "No Trivials" daily if it is on "No Filtering". It's probably safer to leave it on "No Kingdoms at All" if you own a plex. The danger is someone handing you a ton of worthless kingdoms and then nuking you since the more kingdoms you own past 1,000 the easier it is to be nuked. Also the threshold on what is considered a trivial kingdom has been increased to 45 billion.

9/9/2007

RWK's 6th Anniversary is here! To celebrate we are eliminating all interest penalties associated with runes, so pile your kingdoms up (all of them, not just the perimeters) with runes if you want extra security.

We are offering a 2 week RWK Anniversary special: A DDD + 50k Ash for $200. No person is allowed to purchase more than 3 of these specials. They are mail order only and won't be on the order page so simply write 1, 2 or 3 Anniversary Specials on a piece of paper along with your character name, server number and mail it to:
Glitchless
PO Box 5184
Niceville, FL 32578 USA
It doesn't matter when your order arrives but it must be postmarked no later than September 22nd. These orders will break rocks and are not purchaseable with game credit.

8/25/2007

Congratulations to Mike K (Armsman - 3.2GHz Computer System or 750 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Ishara (Northeast Sky 70x70 - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Deacon Frost (Theurgal Divinator - $150), Cooldude3000 (Grandmaster Bowman - $100), and Red193193 (Bloodletter - $100 + $100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for September 29th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

8/24/2007

In order to make sure everyone who competes in the Acumen Inquest at least walks away with a little reward, losers of Inquest duels will now receive 1,500 ash whereas the winners of each duel still receive 2,500 ash.

8/19/2007

All beast spawns and invasions have been reverted to the way they used to be. Using /bnb or /bb you now teleport just 1 kingdom away from the beast and the actual location of the beast is displayed when he spawns.

The Beast Bane and Skill Potencifier have been added back to the buy items page for both PayPal and mail order.

8/14/2007

Our bandwidth provider has been having some routing issues that may be causing some periods of lag or disconnection, however, they are aware of the problem and are working to get things back to normal.

8/3/2007

The first of two mini beast invasions is rumored to be occuring on the night of the 10th.

7/30/2007

The info page has been updated with better tips on how to keep your account and computer safe from would-be theives. Read all the tips and brag that you already knew it all.

7/28/2007

Congratulations to Lilsamurai (Theurgal Divinator - 3.2GHz Computer System or 750 credit) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Unfair Destiny (West Dungeon 60x60 - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Mike K (Master of Arms - $150), Everclear (Master of Arms - $100), Zone (Master of Fists - $100), and Red193193 (Bloodletter - $100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for August 25th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

7/21/2007

The amount of ash you get from swimsuit votes after obtaining a certain amount has been reduced.

6/30/2007

Congratulations to Ladyandlord Viper (Grandmaster Bowman - 3.2GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Ishara (Northeast Sky - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Hecates Revenge (Master of Arms - $150), Mike K (Master of Arms - $100), Lilsamurai (Theurgal Divinator - $100), and Mike K (Master of Arms - $100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for July 28th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).
The swimsuit system has been reinstated with some new restrictions to punish abuse of proxy voting.

6/19/2007

To make invasions a little easier beasts now only travel randomly 3 kingdoms north, south, east, and west roughly halfing the possible kingdoms the beast could be in. Also the location of slain beasts will be announced with their kill messages to prevent you from hopelessly searching for beasts that are already dead. This applies to all beast spawns not just during invasions.

6/18/2007

The beasts are coming for a late lunch tomorrow...

6/12/2007

The PayPal section of the buy items page now has a special offer: Trans & Templar for $65 ($60 if you have trial access). This packaged deal would cost $150 (Fyre Rock, Platinum Ore, and Templar) if bought separately and may not be available for long. It cannot be purchased via mail order or credit. To make sure no one who recently purchased access is upset, we are giving a 50k Ash Essence Element to anyone who made a Fyre Rock, Platinum Ore, or Templar purchase via PayPal in the past 2 weeks.

6/7/2007

Corruption will now work properly during the daily map update.

6/5/2007

Beasts just got a lot craftier. They now travel randomly up to 5 kingdoms north, south, east and west of thier last known location. This should finally hamper the hot key macroers ability to gain an unfair advantage.

The Beastbane is required to attack the Ancient Alchemar.

6/2/2007

The changes in war damage based on being on the 1000+ list are now working properly.

A limit of 1 purchase per week has been placed on the "50k No Trade Ash Essence Element" item. This restriction applies to any PayPal account, person, or character. Failure to follow this rule will be assumed to be fraud. Anyone having exceeded this limit in the past does not have to worry, the rule goes into effect as of now.

Interest messages have been changed to separately show interest lost to both corruption (which now refers only to interest reduction based on your # of kingdoms) and over-runing. As intended the modifications to war damage only result from corruption, not over-runing. Runes still greatly add to a kingdom's defense at the expense of some interest, less risk = less reward. Many are confused by the fact that 50% corruption is resulting in far more war damage than anticipated. This is because 50% corruption actually means double normal damage when being attacked and half damage when attacking. Likewise a corruption level of 90% means you take 10x more damage and deal 1/10th normal damage in war, however, you would need 17,500 kingdoms to get to 90% corruption.

5/31.5/2007

There was a glitch caused by today's patch that allowed the trading of any item to the Ash Keeper to receive 50k ash in return. This was an obvious glitch not intended to occur and those who came across it would have known without a doubt that it was an illegal action. We keep excellent records of game events and were able to determine exactly who traded items to the Ash Keeper, however, we have only banned the players who actually went on to spend the ash they had illegally received - all their characters. Anyone who merely received ash from the exploit has had the ash removed from their account. Every single piece of ash has been recovered without the need for sloppy clean-ups like roll backs. The only characters to fully exploit this bug and be banned as a result were Qwertpoiuy, Mazurat, and Lost Angel.

5/31/2007

The Beast Bane, Skill Potencifier, Tradeskill Manifesto, and Scepter of Annulment can no longer be directly purchased via PayPal or Mail Order. They can still be purchased via ash by speaking to the Ash Keeper located at 150, Sur, 150 and we have added a special new item to PayPal purchases called the Essence Element of 50k No Trade Ash. As the name implies you cannot trade it between players. Buying it does not break rocks, however, many of the items you would then buy with ash from the Ash Keeper do. The $5 discount from trial access does not apply to this item.

The monthly plex award will now be judged with new criteria. The largest single color perfect SQUARE plex that exists on the current map and previous day's map will win. Borders are encouraged to help you realize if you have a stray kingdom on the edge, but they will not count toward plex size anymore, nor can multiple colors be contained by a single border to win. Players who happen to share the same map color cannot work together to enter a single plex, this will be difficult to enforce so competitors are encouraged to report any winners who attempt to cirumnavigate this rule to scamracewarkingdoms.com. In addition, the plex must be at least 50x50 kingdoms in size. If two plexes of equal size exist the person who is higher on the 1000+ Club list will win. If these requirements are not met then there will not be a winner for that month. No player can win two plex awards in a row nor can any kingdoms of the previous plex winner be included in the next winner's plex.

You cannot give kingdoms to someone who doesn't have a Transcendental Sanction (All Planes Access) but you can give your kingdom to NOBODY to abandon it.

The 2500+ Club has been changed to the 1000+ Club and the 7/20/2006 announcement has been modified to show the correct corruption amounts based on your number of kingdoms. Also note that your kingdom colors will not be forced on unless you have 2500+ kingdoms since you have no chance of winning the plex award unless you have this amount anyways.

Players on the 1000+ Club list will do less damage when waging war and also take more damage when someone is waging war on you. The amount that the damage is increased/decreased is the same as the penalties caused to your interest based on the number of kingdoms you have. See the 7/20/2006 announcements for details.

ALL INTEREST RATES HAVE BEEN INCREASED! Small plex holders rejoice (but do so silently or you will be hunted down and nuked) because you can now make some decent money without investing trillions.

There is going to be a lot of complaining and crying from large plex holders for weeks after these changes. The truth is these changes were necessary to make things fair. There was a ruling party of people using hotkey macros to maintain and harvest from enourmous plexes making it impossible for anyone doing it by hand to compete. These changes slap these cheaters in the face and make them play the game more fairly. There could be some honest people complaining that they'll now have to shrink back their 2k plex to a 1k plex but the vast majority of the complainers are merely upset that they no longer have a mechanical advantage. They're so angry right now they'd like you to believe that RWK is dead, but the truth is RWK has just gotten far better for nearly everyone.

5/30/2007

The double credit rules on the money order page have been shortened and clarified. You cannot now - nor could you ever - exploit holidays in an effort to ensure double credit on an overnighted order.

5/29/2007

Players under level 500 will have their locations xxx'ed out by default to help prevent griefing. Be sure to get Templar before level 500 or the world will see your location when you chat.

Hoarding more than 5 runes in a kingdom now contributes greatly to interest reduction meaning you will get less interest in that kingdom. A kingdom with 6 runes will get 80% normal interest and a kingdom with 50 runes will get 10%, etc.

RWK geologists predict that sometime tomorrow the rune destruction rate of tectonic activity will been increased.

Despite what you may hear from the propaganda coming from large plex holders these changes will benefit the people with small hidden kingdoms allowing their profits to be more comparable with the giants.

Corruption and over runing will now affect the growth rate of all kingdom assets.

Swimsuit votes are no longer being counted or yielding ash due to too much abuse.

5/28/2007

The cost of Trial Access has been increased to $15. The discount you get on other items while having Trial Access remains at $5. We'll all be playing RWK when we're old and grey so we might as well save some money and buy permanent access anyways.

2/5/2007

Players are instructed to insist that the lower level player always send first in any transaction where scamming can occur. You can test if someone is lower level than you by offering them a worthless item such as a Rusty Dagger. Simply put, if you don't follow these rules and get scammed by someone who is lower level than you then we don't want to hear about it. To report a scammer who is higher level than you send an email to scamracewarkingdoms.com and be sure to include a short description of what happened as well as your character name and server number and we will investigate.

Mail orders will not be processed on the second week of January until the following week. Overnighted orders received on or before the 8th of that week will receive double credit, however, no double credit will be given for orders received later in that week since you have been forewarned.

The next Inquest is scheduled for December 30th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

11/24/2006

An issue where corrupted packets could cause a security check even while not performing actions has been fixed. This issue did not exist long enough for anyone to be wrongfully banned from it.

11/19/2006

PayPal orders may be delayed until an issue is resolved.

The PayPal issue has been resolved and transactions should be processed nearly instantly as usual.

11/7/2006

You will not get security checks unless you are actually performing actions. This issue only occurred for a short period of time - not enough for anyone to be wrongfully banned while AFK. SoSe will now give the 10x Bloodletter damage bonus for all beasts instead of just certain uber beasts that had enhanced defenses.

11/6/2006

In the past certain actions did not trigger security checks. This loophole has been found and removed.

10/30/2006

The Attacker's Balance now works as intended. Previously it did not properly prevent certain relics from healing your enemies over the crucial 1,999,999,998 health point.

The Pentium 3.0GHz Computer prize has been slightly upgraded with a larger hard drive.

10/28/2006

Congratulations to Lord Shinobai (Theurg - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Wohoo (Midwest Dungeon - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Rid (Fighter - $150 + $100 Brawl), Kingoforge (Theurg - $100), and Lord Longshank (Caster - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for November 25th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

10/23/2006

When spawning private beasts with ash you will be teleported to their location just in case you do not receive the message with their location due to lag.

9/30/2006

Congratulations to Lord Damarus (Theurg- 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Red Fang (Northeast Heaven - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award.

The next Inquest is scheduled for October 28th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

9/9/2006

The anniversary updates are here! They're a little crazy too, type /girlfriend for details. Other commands that have been added to the Actions page are /gf and /dump.

Ancient Alchemars now drop between 2 and 8 Palace Elements, however, you can only kill one Ancient Alchemar per month. This month's AA list has been reset because of these changes.

The issue that caused girlfriend points to reset if you made a purchase has been fixed. Anyone who made a purchase after the day change was reimbursed their GF points. If you made a purchase before then you were not reimbursed since it also reset your day kills allowing you to easily re-acquire your points for that day.

9/5/2006

Account keys are used to recover passwords. If someone "gives" you a character's password and not the account key don't be foolish and change its password to the same as your main character's because the person will use the account key to learn the password on that account. If you don't know an account's key you don't own it and should treat it as such.

8/26/2006

Congratulations to Lardinho (Theurg - 3.0GHz Computer System and $100 Brawl) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Lord Ramza (Southeast Sky - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Rid (Fighter - $150), Jadedmyst (Theurg - $100), and Kingoforge (Theurg - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for September 30th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

8/18/2006

Purchases made for characters who have trial access are discounted by $5. This way you can get trial access and if you decide to then go on to buy permanent items you will not have wasted your $5. NOTE: To get these discounts you must use the link provided in green text that will appear when you relog your account while having trial access.

7/29/2006

Congratulations to Gangiskhan (Fighter - 3.0GHz Computer System and $100 Brawl) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Iaulus (North Heaven - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award.

The next Inquest is scheduled for August 26th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

7/20/2006

All interest rates have been slightly increased.

Any king who holds more than 1000 kingdoms in his name regardless of which plane they are in will receive diminishing interest. If you have 2500 kingdoms you will receive 70% the interest, 5,000 35%, etc.

A new tops list has been added called the 1000+ Club showing all kings with 1000+ kingdoms and the # of kingdoms. This list will be updated during the daily map update. Note that it may reflect a number that is a few kingdoms short of your true number if you have a few stray kingdoms on planes that aren't qualifying you to get on the Top Kings 250 list of that particular plane, but since the interest calculator will be using the data from this list it is all you need be concerned with.

If your name is on the 1000+ Club list then all your kingdoms will be forced as colored on the map the following day. This, along with an image editor, can prove very useful in tracking down stray kingdoms putting you over 1000.

A third option has been added under Trivial Gold/Kingdom filtering to block all kingdom trades.

The formula used to determine diminishing interest has been changed and the numbers in above announcement have been changed to reflect this. To maximize interest you will still want to have no more than 1000 kingdoms, however, having more kingdoms will not be a total waste of time as it would have been with the original formula.

7/19/2006

Kingdoms cannot be transferred to players who have active tecton or stone. Look forward to updates in the next few days that will increase interest profits from small plexes and decrease profits for megaplexes.

6/24/2006

Congratulations to Chaos Heretic (Monk - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Soviet (Southwest Dungeon - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award.

The next Inquest is scheduled for June 24th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

5/19/2006

Rule Clarification: To prevent Inquest winners from circumventing the 12 month restriction we do not allow name swaps for any characters that have won an Inquest in the past 12 months.

5/10/2006

RWK is the first to impose sanctions on Iran. In a bold move RWK has suspended the ability of all players located in Iran from nuking until Iran stops it's nuclear enrichment program and complies with international regulations and inspections. Soon you might not be safe IRL but know that even if your house is blown to oblivion that your kingdoms will still remain intact. Beast invasion rumored for May 19th.

4/29/2006

Congratulations to Ladyandlord Viper (Archer - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Heruvim (North Surface - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Unfair Destiny (Monk - $150 + $100 Brawl), Nsane (Fighter - $100), Ehlmaris (Theurg - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for May 27th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

4/28/2006

The skill system has been limited in that you can only divert certain %'s toward skills after reaching certain levels.

4/15/2006

Starting after this month's inquest there will be some changes made to the war system to increase the effectiveness of waging war against massive plexes. When attacking the kingdoms of a player who owns massive amounts of kingdoms in that plane you will have an increased chance of a sneak attack. If the target king owns less than 1,000 kingdoms in that plane there will not be a noticable change, but if he owns say 1/10th of the kingdoms in that plane you will have an extra 1 in 10 chance of a sneak attack...if he owns half the kingdoms in the plane you will have an extra 1 in 2 chance of a sneak attack...etc. Also sneak attacks will no longer count toward your total hourly attack limit. A trivial kingdom acceptance filter will be implemented as well to prevent exploitation of the system by purposefully giving someone many kingdoms.

4/14/2006

Using Tectons and Citadel Stones will now give you a random sleeved poker card. They still have the same very low chance of yielding a DD as well.

4/10/2006

In an effort to prevent mentor buying players under level 10 cannot receive gold and items nor can they receive or settle kingdoms. They can however still give kingdoms and send items in exchange for 1 gold to allow people to retrieve their belongings off of mules. Anyone still attempting to buy mentors off new players (or sell or buy swimsuit votes) will be banned.

3/30/2006

Shadow items are now working as intended. Previously they were only causing additional ambush chance if a red card was activated. Special thanks to Loveless and Kud of S2 for reporting the problems, both received $50 credit.

3/26/2006

You can now get overnight shipping on mail orders for free. If your order total is $200 or more and you are spending over $12 on postage you may subtract $15 from your order total.

3/25/2006

Congratulations to Cooldude3000 (Archer - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Raistlin Drakan (North Heaven - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Lord Longshank (Caster - $150), Unfair Destiny (Monk - $100 + $100 Brawl), Kathstandsalone (Fighter - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for April 29th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

3/23/2006

After the Inquest this Saturday the trading rules for the new Shadow set items will be simplified. Enchanting and disenchanting will both be cheap and easy. They will be downgrade-able to Crystalline for a hefty price (100k ash and 999 runes). Shadow set items will no longer be trade-able in any form, pure or enchanted. This will make the rules easier to understand and more importantly, allow you to have a full set of Shadow armor and be able to upgrade the relics on them as you see fit without costing an arm and a leg.

3/19/2006

A Citizen located in the center of Heaven now offers a quest for upgrading high end items. One of the upgrades produces an item superior to Crystallines. These items are unique because they can ONLY be traded if they are in pure form. They are cheap and easy (very low trivial) to enchant but disenchanting is extremely expensive. This should help players with single characters better compete in the Inquest against players who are using many characters and passing around full suits of armor each month.

The graphics for the new items may not be visible to you if you are loading RWK graphics off your hard drive. You can download the RWK Installer by following this link which will be available until Download.com updates its file to version 1.1.

Shadow items have been upgraded. In addition to all of the benefits of Crystalline, an innately higher Defense/Attack/Cast rating, and 10% Ambush and 10% Prevent Ambush chance in combat, Shadow items now grant a 1% Sneak Attack and 1% Ambush chance per piece for waging war. And remember that in RWK, all effects stack unless otherwise stated.

The Shrine Keeper's quest for swapping D*D's and D*Dev's has been expanded to allow you to give him an enchanted item and he'll swap the enchantment.

3/18/2006

The delay for using all types of beast teleportation has been reduced to 4 seconds.

3/14/2006

If you now use a poker card but are already in the special mode (ie Ambush Mode) that the poker card would give you, the game prevents you from wasting that card. This should help in the heat of the moment during duels in the inquest.

An issue with the Attacker's Balance quest item (type /help and read up) is believed to be fixed. Previously it had not been functioning properly, sometimes preventing double 999,999,999 attacks from killing a player who hadn't healed.

3/11/2006

Normally the monthly Mini Beast Invasion occurs at a random time. This month, however, the MBI is scheduled for March 18th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time). This will be the first invasion of any kind since the changes were made to beast teleportation, and it should be a very interesting event.

3/5/2006

Consider this your official and only warning: Clicking while not paying attention to the action of the game is strictly prohibited. This is to prevent macroers from using this as an excuse to avoid being banned after not responding to security checks. If you are clicking then your eyes must be on the screen and you must be coherent enough to respond to a security check. This will be added to the Terms of Use today, please review the Terms of Use linked at the bottom of the page.

The problem causing many players to not be able to deposit into their kingdoms and not get ash from the daily lotto is believed to be fixed.

3/2/2006

You can now communicate with the Heaven Hermit from any kingdom in Heaven. This will allow people with the $5, 10 day Templar/access to complete the backpack quest. Also to be clear, you keep everything you get during your 10 days with Templar and access benefits, the only thing you lose after 10 days is the Templar abilities and plane access.

3/1/2006

For just $5 players can now have the benefits of being a Templar with full access for 10 days. This is currently only available via Paypal.

2/27/2006

Some changes have been implemented to both help prevent server lag during beast invasions as well as prevent players from using macros to immediately teleport to and kill beasts. You now must wait 10 seconds in between using any kind of /bb, /q, or /bnb command. This will prevent players from spamming the commands in an attempt to tele to beasts prior to someone who is paying ash to spawn them. Also, all beast teleportation commands will now teleport you to a kingdom somewhere next to the actual beast kingdom so you will have to manually move one square to get to the beast. Likewise, any teleportation used within 10 seconds of a beast being spawned will result in being 1 kingdom off. This ensures people with /bb are still the same amount faster than people simply using teleportation as they have always been. Rest assured, anyone complaining about this change is simply angry that their beast macro no longer works.

A temporary quest has been added where you can turn in your Beast Bane or SoSe to the Ash Keeper for ash compensation. If you hand in the BB you get 90k ash and lose the BB. If you hand in your SoSe you lose the SoSe and get 140k ash and all the components back from it except the BB. This quest will last for 1 week and then be removed. NOTE: Characters with /q will only get 120k ash back when trading in SoSe since SoSe takes 20k less ash for them to obtain. Also to prevent exploitation this quest can only be done once, regardless of whether it is an SoSe or BB you return.

The Puddle Keeper now gives 4 to 6 supers for a DD instead of 3 to 5.

2/25/2006

Congratulations to Eldriken (Theurg - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Unfair Destiny (Southwest Dungeon - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Ehlmaris (Theurg - $150), Red193193 (Vamp - $100), Lady Calimar (Monk - $100), Ksy Ghan (Fighter - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for March 25th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

1/30/2006

The Computer System prizes have been changed slightly. You now have the option to choose between an AMD 64 or Pentium4 system. We opted to remove the monitor and printer in exchange for better RAM and more expensive SATA hard drives that can offer great improvement in game performance and loading time respectively. Systems also now include CD burners.

1/29/2006

Congratulations to Hazonko (Caster - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Raistlin Drakan (North Heaven - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Cooldude3000 (Archer - $150), Kingoforge (Theurg - $100), Rid (Fighter - $100), Ksy Ghan (Fighter - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for Feb 25th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

1/26/2006

This is a security reminder to make sure your password contains both letters and numbers in it so that it cannot be easily guessed. A recent attempt to brute force guess passwords was detected and thwarted, however, if your password is so easily guessable that it could be found on a list of common passwords such as "123123" or "dog" then there's no protecting you from your own stupidity.

1/19/2006

RWK's minigame Dragon Wizard has been released on New Grounds. Click here to play. Your high scores should now be visible on the tops lists in RWK (your gold left after you win or die 4 times is your score) so you should always enter your RWK name and submit your score regardless of whether or not you will get the gold that day or not. Please take the game rating votes on New Grounds seriously, the better the rating the more people will play RWK and the RWK population determines the amount of beasts spawned.

12/30/2005

Congratulations to Ximor (Fighter - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Ximor (Northeast Sky - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Eldriken (Theurg - $150), Spectral Falconer (Monk - $100), Kingoforge (Theurg - $100), Hazonko (Caster - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for Jan 29th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

12/23/2005

Christmas D*Dev Special!
For years you've been hoping for the chance to have one of the sacred, most powerful relics in the game - and for a limited time you can buy them! Until January 6th you have the opportunity to buy these relics which have never been available before. Their weaker counterparts, normal D*D's used to be sold but no longer are. If you wish to purchase one the cost is $300 and the limit is 3 per person. We will not allow you to go over the limit so do not ask to. Just print out a normal mail order form (found here http://rwk2.racewarkingdoms.com/order/money.htm) for another item such as the Fyre Rock and cross it out on the form and in its place write the D*Dev of your choice. The types are:
1) Mutilating
2) Lithe
3) Putrid
4) Resistant
5) Skillful
6) Accelerated
7) Warring
8) Opulent
Remember it MUST be postmarked no later than Jan 6th, it doesn't necessarily have to arrive here by then.

11/27/2005

Rather than having undercover characters do mentor requests for a 50 dollar credit reward there is now a chance everytime you are a guide that you will receive a 25,000 ash jackpot. The chance should be substantial enough that there will be 3 or more winners per month on each server.

11/26/2005

Congratulations to Black Knight (Archer - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Lord Ramza (Northeast Hell - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Ksy Ghan (Fighter - $150), Ximor (Fighter - $100), Cooldude3000 (Archer - $100 + Brawl $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for December 30th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

11/21/2005

The problem that allowed using many apex relics to actually reduce your action delay has been fixed and the honest player who reported it was well rewarded.

11/19/2005

To make up for the mini beast invasion that was several hours late today we will be having a second MBI sometime tomorrow.

11/7/2005

Paypal's Instant Payment Notification system is undergoing some maintenance which is forcing us to process all Paypal orders by hand for the time being. This may cause some slight delays in receiving your Paypal items, however, if the delay is substantial you will be compensated.

10/31/2005

Congratulations to Lord Ramza (Caster - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest and to Ximor (Northeast Sky - $500) for winning the Kingdom Plex Award. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Aribus (Archer - $150), Cooldude3000 (Archer - $100), Vampgirl Jenny (Fighter - $100), and Eldriken (Theurg - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for November 26th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

10/30/2005

It is no longer possible to trade a kingdom that is under major assault. This prevents multiple kings from sharing the benefit of the same stone drop as well as some other exploitative defensive tactics.

10/24/2005

You will notice that the address on the mail order forms has been changed to a new PO Box (and zip code). Due to the large amount of orders we have been receiving we needed a larger box. Don't worry, we will still check our old box for another month, however, from now on only mail sent to the new address will be eligible for double credit.

10/19/2005

This month's Inquest has been rescheduled to a day later than originally planned. It will be on October 30th (SUNDAY) at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

10/4/2005

Congratulations to Bloodnseige and Todders. They were the lucky ones to answer guide requests of undercover Glitchless reps and were thus awarded a free $50 purchase! We will be doing this at least once a month, so don't neglect to be a good guide to all those who request help!

10/1/2005

Congratulations to Strydor (Northeast Surface - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex and to Raistlin Drakan (Monk - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Lord Ramza (Caster - $150), Ladyandlord Viper (Archer - $100), Oddbin (Monk - $100), and Bacchaus (Archer - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for October 30th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

9/27/2005

Swimsuit links can now be used by players who are over level 10! This can potentially give you an extra 20k ash per month which can be used to purchase items.

A new item has been added for mail order (and credit) only. It is a 50k Ash Essence Element which is ideal for Inquest winners, SoSe questers and has the bonus of being tradeable.

D*D's are no longer on the order page, however, you can still handwrite and send your order (include Character, Server, and Item) as long as it is postmarked no later than Oct 15th.

The amount of ash a player can hold has been increased to 250,000.

9/24/2005

Unfortunately today's Inquest is being rescheduled to Oct 1st at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time). Although there is nothing wrong with the servers, the personel needed to host the event are unable to connect on anything but dial-up due to cable outages. We apologize for the inconvenience and know that many of you may have changed your schedules just to be at the Inquest. There will be a mini beast invasion in the Inquest's timeslot followed by the announcement of the plex and swimsuit context winners.

The swimsuit contest has been modified to be more rewarding to all those who participate. There will no longer be a $100 reward for the person with the most votes, instead, each person will receive 50 ash per vote for their first 200 votes and 10 ash per vote for the next 1,000. This allows you to get an extra 20k ash per month for participating.

Starting next week DD's and D*D's will no longer be sold. They will only be available via questing. This should make power in the game be derived more from skill and dedication rather than IRL wealth. Any DD or D*D orders postmarked after Oct 15th will be returned to sender.

Mentors will now receive 500 ash instead of 250.

9/18/2005

A quest has been added allowing you to convert 50k ash to 40 Palace Element credits. This will allow getting DD's from pure ash possible again at the same ratio as before but without any risk.

9/10/2005

RWK Swimsuit Edition is here! For players above level 10 you can now set a swimsuit image and show the link to people outside of RWK. If your picture receives a "Sexy!" vote then you will get a swimsuit point. The person with the most swimsuit points at the end of each month on each server (resets each month) will receive 100 dollars cash (or credit if preferred). That's right, we'll be sending you a money order instead of the other way around for once. Note the rules, however, or you will risk losing your account. Your swimsuit picture can NOT be vile, illegal, distasteful, nude, or otherwise inappropriate. The object is to post the sexiest female picture you can find - you will disqualified if you do not follow this rule regardless of your number of votes. You can use /s NAME to view people's swimsuit pictures and /sw to check how many votes you have. Repeated votes from the same IP blocks will not count. You are NOT allowed to post your link in RWK chat.

Speak with the Ash Keeper about a second way to get the Goblin Hide.

9/8/2005

RWK anniversary updates continue!
A Citizen somewhere offers quests that make use of many of the essence elements that have previously had little value up until now. Features including swapping for different types, swapping for sleeved poker cards, swapping for ash and even swapping for a Devil's Deliverance at high quantities. Super relics can also be swapped for ash and DD's with these new quests.

A command that disables detailed battle text has been added. Those who are advanced enough to use it will be advanced enough to figure it out.

Crafters will be pleased to know they can now craft Demonics although the cost involves a Palace Element.

9/7/2005

The first of the anniversary updates are here early. Super relics are now purchaseable separately from Tradeskill Manifesto's, each at 50 dollars. Tradeskill Manifesto's are now purchaseable via PayPal, however, the super relics are still mail order only.

9/1/2005

A bug that was causing the use of red cards to result in Ultra Resist mode instead of Ambush mode has been fixed. Special thanks to Raistlin Drakan of S1 for reporting this problem.

8/30/2005

Congratulations to Ehlmaris. He was not the only person to respond to the /guide request of an undercover Glitchless rep, but he was the most helpful and was thus awarded a free $50 purchase! We will be doing this at least once a month, so don't neglect to be a good guide to all those who request help!

New characters now start with 50,000 gold to help them start out. This should not be enough gold to make it worthwhile to mass create accounts since there are far faster ways of earning gold.

A bug that was preventing kingdoms from triggering their morale loss due to lack of 10 billion assets has been fixed. Special thanks to Red Fang of S1 for reporting the problem.

8/27/2005

Congratulations to Bacchaus (North Dungeon Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex and to Vampire of Hatred (Theurg - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Boko316 (Archer - $150), Lord Ramza (Caster - $100 & $100 Brawl), and Ksy Ghan (Fighter - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for September 24th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

8/24/2005

Starting on the night of the upcoming Inquest you will no longer be able to add runes to kingdoms that are under major assault. The tactic of temporarily beefing up kingdom rune amounts when attacked has been deemed to be far too cost efficient. War is intended to be costly for both the attackers and defenders. If you were relying on this strategy in the past for defense you may need to build up your rune defenses before being attacked or have a couple stones handy. We believe this strategy was also much to blame for the lack of use of stones which should now be found much more necessary.

After a kingdom has been attacked with an aftershock it is considered under "major assault" until it is overthrown or until the hour change.

8/13/2005

Private messages now vary in color based on the level of the sender. Under level 10 is grey, under level 500 is blue, under level 1500 is purple and 1500 and above is vibrant red. This should prevent name "irnitators" from being able to fool you.

8/5/2005

Congratulations to Neya. He was the lucky person to respond to the /guide request of an undercover Glitchless rep and due to his patience and help he was awarded a free $50 purchase! We will be doing this at least once a month, so don't neglect to be a good guide to all those who request help!

A bug that was preventing Grandmaster Bowmen from making use of their Sanction of Serenity dodge ability has been found and corrected. Special thanks to Red Fang of S1 for reporting the problem.

8/2/2005

Purchasing PayPal items for someone else's character in trade for game assets is strictly forbidden. If seen auctioning PayPal purchases (buying or selling) you will be banned. You can trade PayPal dollars for game assets, but you cannot make purchases for others. If you want to buy an item for a friend then send him the PayPal money and let him purchase it his or herself. This rule has been in effect for years but will now be more strictly enforced. If someone purposefully buys you something in an effort to get you in trouble simply report it to ordersracewarkingdoms.com immediately.

7/30/2005

Congratulations to Hazonko (Northeast Surface Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex and to Murion Kerchibard (Caster - 3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and brawl winners Lord Ramza (Caster - $150), Vampire Of Hatred (Theurg - $100), Eldriken (Theurg - $100), and Nsane (Warrior - $100 Brawl). The next Inquest is scheduled for August 27th at 6:00pm EST (18:00 RWK Time).

7/29/2005

A slight flaw in the map system was found today. When kings modified their show/hide map colors the actual kingdom settings were only updated if a person walking over the kingdom triggered interest for that hour. The system has since been enhanced to force the kingdoms to update when being walked but only if it is walked by the king himself. The king can still have someone else walk his kingdoms to update them, however, they must be sure to trigger interest or modify the kingdom in some way to get the map color setting to update. If this doesn't make sense don't worry, your measly plex is probably not a candidate for winning this month anyway. To make things fair for the plex contest this month, only tomorrow's map will count in judging, whereas normally your plex must be identical on the previous day's map as well.

7/21/2005

Congratulations to Astral Projection. He was the lucky person to respond to the /guide request of an undercover Glitchless rep and due to his patience and help he was awarded a free $50 purchase! We will be doing this at least once a month, so don't neglect to be a good guide to all those who request help!

7/14/2005

Players who are not able to use the /mentor command due to having already used it on another character are now also not able to use the /guide command. This will mean a much higher percentage of people using /guide will be valid players looking for help which will make being a guide more rewarding.

7/5/2005

Character sharing and trading is no longer allowed. We will not be actively seeking out and punishing those who break this rule, but if you auction that you are selling a character, or e-mail us complaining that your clicker stole your character or that you were scammed in a character transaction you will be banned for failing to follow the rules. These rules are for your protection.

6/25/2005

Congratulations to Raistlin Drakan (Northwest Hell Plex - $500 + $100 Inquest Semifinalist) for winning best Kingdom Plex award and to Lord Sin (3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest winners Peutre ($150 + $100 Brawl) and Cursed ($100). The next Inquest is scheduled for July 30th at 5:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

5/31/2005

There is now a button that appears to the right of your chat submit button after using most "/" commands. It takes the value of the last "/" command you used, allowing you to click the button rather than repeatedly having to paste it. This should help some make certain chores in the game easier and faster.

A major change has been made in the way kingdom maps work. By default your kingdoms will not show up on the map, only by changing your "Kingdom Map Colors" option will your kingdoms appear on the map. This should help players who aren't interested in the monthly plex award hide their plexes and build up power in the game.

5/30/2005

Upon entering RWK from http://www.racewarkingdoms.com you will now see an intro. You can skip the intro at any time simply by clicking it, however, if you want to skip it altogether merely bookmark the login page.

5/28/2005

Congratulations to our Skin Contest winners! Draken Korin received the grand prize of a 1.7GHz computer w/ 1GB RAM, Metroid was the first runner up receiving 1GB RAM while Dragons and Eldriken both receive a $50 game credit for their worthy skin submissions.

Congratulations to Hazonko (Northeast Surface Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex award and to Lilsamurai (3.0GHz Computer System) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest winners Rid ($150), Nsane ($100), Ksy Ghan ($100), and Spectral Falconer ($100). The next Inquest is scheduled for June 25th at 5:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

5/22/2005

The Ashen Rock drops have been added to the game, having them when making a purchase results in rewards. Their probability of dropping has been decreased since first implemented.

5/19/2005

The guide system has been changed to now require that the player you guide only get to level 1 in order to use the /mentor command which gives you the 250 ash reward. This is so guides can see faster results when helping players. Report level 1 characters abusing the guide feature to beg for items to abuseracewarkingdoms.com.

5/18/2005

A new feature has been added to the game that allows players over level 100 to be a mentor/guide for players under level 5. The reward for doing this is 250 ash. Check the options menu for the "Be a Guide" option and change your settings to receive complete instructions.

The idle timer that prevents the game from refreshing chat has been increased from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.

Some restrictions have been added to the new /mentor command which checks to make sure no one on the same IP or same computer has used the command before. This will help prevent exploitation of the new system. Keep in mind this does not in any way restrict your ability to simultaneously guide several new players at once and get the 250 /mentor ash reward from each and every one of them when they reach level 5. They just have to actually be different people on different computers.

Though the transformation is not 100% complete, we have given the RWK interface an overhaul. You can still use the old "Classic" skin if you prefer by using the /skin and /drive commands.

5/15/2005

We have updated our policy on deleting inactive accounts. Any account that has a purchasable quest item or super relic (MR, CR, VS or better) will never be deleted. Accounts that have no purchasable items may be deleted after 6 months of not being accessed, however.

5/14/2005

Skin contest update: the Skin.zip file has been updated and greatly simplified. The new zip only contains the 42 images that are crucial to the interface and thus are the only ones that need to be modified to make a successful skin. Any skin created should modify the vast majority if not all of these 42 images. Submissions from this point on should only contain the images in the new zip. Remember any skins that contain content that is not purely original will be disqualified.

5/13/2005

Those entering the RWK skin contest need to have their submissions in prior to the start of the Inquest. All artwork in your submission must be of your own and original creation. You cannot use graphics from outside sources.

5/4/2005

The /drive command has been improved so that it now uses your browser's cookies to make a permanent change to your graphics path. This allows you to relog in order to properly load all RWK skin graphics.

RWK is having a skin contest! The creator of the best original RWK skin will receive a 1.7GHz computer the same as described on the prizes page or $250 game credit! A runner up prize of 1 GB Kingston PC3200 RAM or $100 game credit will also be awarded and a $50 game credit will be given to anyone whose skin is deemed worthy of being hosted on the RWK site. Submissions must be e-mailed in ZIP format (EXE's not accepted) to skinsracewarkingdoms.com with the subject "SKIN SUBMISSION". Winners will be announced at this month's Inquest. Your skin must contain every graphic in the Skin.zip file but does not have to modify them all.

5/1/2005

Sometimes beasts spawn but they're not there. Ever wonder where they go? They're smarter than normal beasts, you see. They hide until they reach great enough numbers to launch a mini invasion. From now on every month a mini beast invasion will occur. When it occurs will be up to the beasts... and they're not talking. Just hope you're on when it happens and you might kill a beast or two.

4/30/2005

We are now giving away full Dell computer systems to the Inquest winners. Inquest winners on both servers will choose between $500 credit or the prizes listed here. One noteworthy rule change is that starting next month the character that wins the Inquest will not be able to compete again in Inquests for 12 months. This should help spread the prizes more evenly among the player population. If a character who has won the Inquest changes his name then his new name will also be barred from entering Inquests for the remaining 12 months.

Congratulations to Heruvim (Southeast Hell Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex award and to Peutre (Fighter - Computer + $100 Brawl) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest winners Spectral Falconer (Monk - $150), Rid (Fighter - $100), and Ksy Ghan (Fighter - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for May 28th at 5:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

4/20/2005

Server 1 is back online. If anyone you know is having problems accessing the site tell them to clear their internet cache and hit CTRL-F5 to refresh the page. If an account you know exists is giving the player not found message then send us an e-mail to have it manually restored.

4/18/2005

Server 1's motherboard has died and we are overnighting a replacement to our datacenter. Server 1 will hopefully be back online tomorrow afternoon but may not be up until mid Wednesday. A full beast invasion is scheduled for April 22nd at 8pm EST (20:00 RWK Time) on both servers to make up for this extended downtime.

4/4/2005

An issue that allowed attackers to circumvent the Citadel defense bonus by charging through their own kingdoms has been fixed.

4/1/2005

Our host has informed us that they will be doing some network upgrades and we may experience some 10-15 minutes outages tonight between 11pm and 1am EST.

To make up for the lag being caused by the upgrades our host is in the process of doing there is a mini beast invasion scheduled for April 6th 9pm EST.

3/26/2005

Congratulations to Murion Kerchibard (Northeast Surface Dual Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex and to Lardinho (Theurg - $250 + $100 Brawl) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest winners Peutre (Monk - $150), Rid (Fighter - $100), and Ksy Ghan (Fighter - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for April 30th at 5:00pm EST (17:00 RWK Time).

3/25/2005

Players now receive 2,500 ash per fight they win in the Inquest. Read more here.

3/17/2005

Legend has it that there was a card playing Rogue who bled his opponents of their money mercilessly. He would bleed them literally as well if they ever confronted him about his cheating. His sash can now be quested for a hefty and random cost of gold, or purchased by clicking the buy items link when in the game. The sash greatly increases the power of the attack bonuses gained from sleeved black cards and also allows you to gain an Ambush ability from any sleeved red card. The Ambush ability when activated gives you a 50 percent chance of ambushing someone who attacks you, causing their attack to be useless (their relics don't fire and they can't attack) and still allowing you to perform your counter attack as always. Note that you only leave Ambush mode after it has once successfully fired, guaranteeing some usage out of every sleeved red card. Having the sash also allows your Devastating Blow, Crippling Blow, Mana Rush, and Mana Surge to work on beasts.

3/15/2005

Information is provided here concerning how your level is now displayed differently.

3/14/2005

You no longer need a graphics package to play RWK. Images may take a few seconds (or minutes if your connection is really slow) to load when you log in, however, they should only load once. If you have the same images loading repeatedly you need to click Tools->Internet Options->Settings and ensure it is set to "Automatically" and that the amount of space being utilized is between 50MB to 2000MB. Hit OK and then click "Delete Files..." which will purge your cache (won't harm anything or delete anything important) to ensure your cache isn't full.

You can now use the "/drive c" function to have RWK look for graphics on your local hard drive so you can use RWK skins.

3/8/2005

The defensive properties of Runes have been multiplied by a factor of 5 for everyone. To offset this increase in defense, damage done after dropping a tecton will be 5x greater. This change is aimed to help thwart the waging of war on small plexes which is commonly done merely to ruin the owner's day.

More importantly, an overthrown kingdom will lose 90% of its runes. War is a large part of Race WAR Kingdoms, however, it is meant to be waged for reasons of map control and alliances, rather than merely profiting at the expense of those who are not currently logged on to defend their kingdoms.

There will be a cheap but lengthy quest added in the near future that will allow you to craft an even higher level of items and greatly reduce the cost of crafting the recently added craftable items.

The effects of Besiege and Assail now stack with the effects of using a tecton.

To summarize and clarify the changes to waging war that have been made today: Normal nuking is 5x less damaging than it was yesterday. Nuking with a tecton is exactly as damaging as it was yesterday. Nuking is now far less profitable, especially so when attacking small noobish plexes.

A D*D swapping quest has been added.

2/26/2005

Congratulations to Nutcancer (West Hell Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex and to Lardinho (Theurg - $250 + $100 Brawl) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and Brawl winners Dennis the Menace (Fighter - $150), Ximor (Monk - $100), and Peutre (Theurg - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for March 26th at 9:00pm EST (21:00 RWK Time).

2/19/2005

More powerful items are now craftable.

New Crystalline items now drop off of select beasts. Crystalline items have the following innate benefits: +5% Additive Void Resist, +44% Ntl, +44% Str, +25% Cnt, +25% Agi, Armor +45% Dur, Weps and Spells +100% Dur. They also have the same Theurg bonuses that Earthen pieces have, see the 3/4/2004 announcement as a reference. Also See the 5/17/2004 announcement for a description on how to compute the additive Void Resist bonus.

You now need the SoFR to attack Lord Alchemars and Ancient Alchemars.

You must be level 50 to use /bnb.

2/18/2005

Due to a recent change in the format PayPal sends information to our server for instant processing, orders made in the past 48 hours for characters with spaces in their names may have been delayed. The issue has been resolved and all future orders should occur instantly.

1/29/2005

Congratulations to Hazonko (Northeast Surface Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex and to Nutcancer (Fighter - $250 + $100 Brawl) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and Brawl winners Peutre (Fighter - $150), Jadedmyst (Theurg - $100), and Black Knight (Archer - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for Feb 26th at 3:00pm EST (15:00 RWK Time).

1/11/2005

The /search command has been added. See the Actions page for details.

1/6/2005

A lotto feature has been added to RWK for players who are at least level 5. As each day goes by in RWK you will gain a lotto ticket. These tickets are automatically used when you do a game action and you will generally win a small amount of ash upon using them. There is a small chance of hitting a 10,000 ash jackpot as well. You can hold a maximum of 10 tickets so be sure to log on at least once a week to maximize your winnings.

1/4/2005

The attack bonuses have now been implemented for all sleeved black cards. The Black Jack gives Ultra Resist (50% void/mes resist), the Black Queen gives Negate Resist (50% anti void/mes resist), the Black King gives Ultra Revive (50% Revive), and the Black Ace gives Ultra Crit (more than doubles all criticality chances). Note that using these abilities will cause you to lose your sleeved card (which you can later get back again playing poker) and will last until you successfully kill a creature or player. These bonuses should add an extra element of strategy to inquests as players must decide when to use these abilities and may also help with slaying difficult creatures or beasts. You can only use one of these abilities at a time since they overwrite each other if used simultaneously. Currently red cards do not have any attack bonuses planned and will most likely be used for cheating in poker only.

S1 now has a more poweful processor that should prevent lag during Inquests and Beast invasions. S2 has new RAM that should prevent the crashing problems that it had when it first went live.

1/3/2005

Due to an overwhelmingly negative response to the prospect of continuing the SoS Package deal we are removing it from purchase permanently and ahead of schedule. Anyone who has an SoS Package order already in the mail will still receive their intended purchase. To compensate for this the Ash Keeper now offers some new quests. Though it would be far wiser to first purchase access to be able to collect ash in areas in Heaven and Hell where drops are more abundant, it is now possible to quest every upgrade in the game without making a single purchase.

There has been a new addition to poker: cheating. Getting certain card combos will result in you automatically slipping a card "up your sleeve" which you can later use to replace one of your existing two cards to better your hand. Be careful using this technique as there is always a 50% chance of being caught and forced to fold. Also if you try to swap a card in that is already in your hand you will be caught for cheating 100% of the time for having two of the same card.

1/2/2005

There is a mini Beast Invasion scheduled for 1/5/2005 at 7pm EST (19:00 RWK Time) which will take place first on S1 and afterwards on S2.

12/28/2004

Since Server 2 has been live it has suffered two crashes. We believe the problem to be caused by faulty RAM and are in the process of replacing it. We appreciate your patience during any downtime that may be caused due to this.

Although it is still technically against the rules, those who accidentally break the chat rules found by typing /faq can expect a warning or 1 hour mute now instead of a 2-day ban. Repeated breaking of the rules, be it intentional or not, will result in a permanent ban. This is being announced so that people don't spam chat with "Whaa, he auctioned in shout, where are the mods?" which is equally annoying and childish and will now also result in a warning or mute.

12/25/2004

Due to the fact that we don't wish to give those who pre-ordered SoS packages an unfair advantage, we are allowing the purchase of SoS packages (Mail order only, comes with DD) for exactly 2 weeks on both servers.

Server 2 is expected to go live shortly after the Inquest today.

You can now easily quest for the Transcendental Sanction after you have the Lava Splicer and Mountain Tamer. See /help for details.

Congratulations to Heroic Monk (North Hell Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex and to Lardinho (Theurg - $250) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and Brawl winners Black Knight (Archer - $150), Murion Kerchibard (Caster - $100 Inquest + $100 Brawl), and Petermanna (Fighter - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for Jan 29th at 8:00pm EST (20:00 RWK Time).

The new war changes and quests are now in effect.

Server 2 is NOW online. For the first week you will be able to use the /z command to morph your Race and Sex. Note: Templars can only do this once!

12/24/2004

Changes have been made to make RWK a less expensive game, allowing you to acquire several of the expensive items that were formerly "purchase only" in exchange for large amounts of ash. The amount of ash required for these items is very high - high enough so that no one who purchased these items in the past should regret making the purchase, and yet low enough so that people who simply cannot afford to buy them can look forward to one day owning them with a lot of hard work. There are only 3 items in the game that are purchase only and they are each $50, all other items can be quested in one form or another.

The SoS package and Transcendental Sanction are no longer available for purchase (if you already purchased these and they're in the mail don't worry, you will still get them).

DD's are now purchaseable for $200 and also have a very small chance of dropping everytime you use a Tecton or Stone.

Talk to the Ash Keeper for details on new ash quests.

RWK players are by nature mean...it's in their blood, but now you get rewarded for being nice! A Patron system has been added to RWK. New players have the option of specifying someone as their Patron when making their first game purchase (Mail Orders only). In order for someone to consider you their Patron you have to earn the title in their eyes. For more info read the link provided on the Mail Orders page.

12/23/2004

Previously when you made orders (PayPal or Mail Order) that came with gold bonuses and you did not have enough room for the extra gold then the gold was simply wasted. An improvement has been made that will ensure you get the proper amount of gold in the form of Livagane heal spells that you can later choose to sell. This will be especially important on Server 2 when it goes live since gold will have a higher initial value.

Game time has been set to coincide with Eastern time. The next Inquest is scheduled for Dec 25th at 5:30pm EST (17:30 RWK Time). Be sure to show up at least 5 minutes early or you may miss your chance to enter.

12/22/2004

The account key system has been modified to allow you to set an account key without a waiting period if your account does not yet have a valid key.

The problem that was causing repeated "player not found" messages for some players has been resolved.

The high player population is currently straining the server, you may experience some performance problems. While the poker mini game is partly responsible for the increased amount of players, it is not itself a strain on the server. In addition to the high performance second server (see previous announcements) we will be upgrading the hardware on the existing server to match the newer one in order to ensure the highest quality gaming on both servers. We apologize for the temporary performance problems.

12/21/2004

The mini game is now available, type /poker or click the card icon next to the buy items link when you're in the game. Don't forget to first download the graphics patch on the login page, hit refresh if the link doesn't show up at first.

You can now choose to get runes instead of ash for your poker winnings. The ratio is 10 ash to 1 rune plus you keep the remaining ash that does not divide evenly, just make sure you're in the right kingdom! To modify check your options menu in game.

12/20/2004

Those of you who use the /reserve command will be able to change your race after logging on to your reserved characters on Server 2.

12/18/2004

On the same day Server 2 goes active the following changes will be made to better balance the offense and defense of kingdoms:
An easily attainable quest will be added for all (even surface) players that will double the defensive effectiveness of Runes. This should half the number of Runes required to make a kingdom reasonably safe, greatly reducing the cost of building plexes. This will especially help those who do not rely on others to defend their kingdoms for them since it will be twice as hard to take someone's kingdom even if they are offline. This quest item will also give attackers the ability to enrage the armies of their kingdoms resulting in double the war damage. It will cost 10 runes to enrage a kingdom's armies which will last 1 hour. The final bonus to this quest will be the /chance ability.

When a kingdom is under major assault the cost of increasing its armies and fortifications for that hour will be 10 times greater than normal. See 8/24/2005 announcement for updated definition of major assault.

Harbringer's Scepter of Oppression will grant an additional hourly attack. The special DD relic combo will unlock your kingmanship's potential to give you additional hourly attacks.

These changes are designed to make building plexes cheaper while at the same time making the amount of money required to actively defend a kingdom closer to the amount of money required to actively attack a kingdom. No longer should the average onlooker with some spare gold be able to thwart a well coordinated kingdom attack, however, an individual or group of players willing to spend a reasonable amount of gold to actively protect their kingdoms should still be able to do so.

12/17/2004

Please make note of the warning at the bottom of the PayPal order page that goes into effect as of today.

The /info command has been added.

12/15/2004

The following is planned for RWK prior to the New Year:
New rare and difficult quests to gain advanced combat abilities.

A second instance of RWK running on a separate server. This is being done to help accomodate the increased player population and will give those who wish a fresh start on a new server. A separate Inquest will be held each month on each server to ensure everyone still has the same if not better chance of winning as before. This second server will be identical in all ways to the first except no characters or kingdoms will yet exist. Nothing at all will be transferrable between the two servers so those who wish to play on the new server will have to truly start from scratch.

A community based mini game of sorts.

12/14/2004

Due to popular demand the Tradeskill Manifesto and Super Relic combo is for sale again via mail order.

12/13/2004

The server change was successful with downtime of 2.5 hours.

12/12/2004

Some have expressed concern over the nuke upgrades that were supposedly coming out on x-mas...there are no such upgrades planned.

Tomorrow the server will be moved to higher quality bandwidth. Downtime is estimated at 2 to 3 hours.

11/27/2004

Congratulations to Dogmeat2 (Northeast Surface Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex and to Petermanna (Fighter - $250) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and Brawl winners Lardinho (Theurg - $150), Lilsamurai (Vamp - $100), Lady Calimar (Monk - $100), and Murion Kerchibard (Caster - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for Dec 25th at 5:30pm EST. Note that Roll Call will not begin until 5:30 as opposed to a half hour in advance like before.

11/19/2004

This is a reminder to be extremely careful when following links that you get in e-mails. There is currently a fake PayPal e-mail that begins "Recently, our Account Review Team identified some unusual activity in your account." and later gives you a link which appears to lead to the PayPal site but takes you to a password theft site that looks identical to the real site. Similar e-mails and fake sites exist trying to steal your RWK login and password information. If you might have fallen for such a scam in the past be sure to change all your passwords and be more wise in the future.

11/10/2004

An issue was corrected for Therugists with the Attacker's Balance and one heal spell that should now allow them to do proper damage. Also note that this fix corrected the amount of life you will heal, which for Theurgists who use a heal spell is dependent on their Dur as opposed to their Ntl.

11/9/2004

Theurgists who have the Attacker's Balance can now equip a single heal spell.

11/4/2004

Previously in order to obtain the reviving benefits of healing spells you needed to heal beyond your modded durability. To make healing spells more viable for high durability players you now only need to heal beyond 999,999,999 total life in order to be revived after slain that round.

A new quest has been added.

10/30/2004

Congratulations to Eldriken (North Dungeon Plex - $500) for winning best Kingdom Plex and to Lardinho (Theurg - $250) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and Brawl winners Lord Shinobai (Vamp - $150), Lilsamurai (Vamp - $100), Cwadarkone (Fighter - $100), and Red Drag0n (Monk - $100). The next Inquest is scheduled for Nov 27th at 11:00pm EST.

10/23/2004

If you or anyone you know is having problems on certain computers where you get a blank screen upon logging in to a character you should try turning off any virus checkers or pop up blockers you have running. Some of these programs (Norton in particular) add code to existing web pages which interferes with the game's javascript interface.

10/22/2004

Be careful when handing EEo(G)T's to the Rune Keeper, you no longer have to be in your own kingdom.

10/19/2004

A new beast has been added that drops a relic that gives you the /freefort ability. See the Actions page for details.

10/12/2004

The mood of the Shrine Keeper has changed.

Due to popular request you can use a D*D instead of a DDD for one of the scepter quests.

10/11/2004

The e-mail system that was previously used for password recovery has been replaced with an account key system. All players are urged to follow the instructions when they log in to set their account key. After initiating an account key change you will need to wait at least 10 days in order to complete the change or 5 days to cancel it and try again (if you forget the key). After your account key is set you can change it again, doing so immediately as long as you know the current key. Passwords can be recovered at the login page if you know the account key to your account.

A very difficult quest has been added which is a significant amount cheaper for /q players to complete.

10/10/2004

Ancient Alchemars now drop EEoT or EEoGT in addition to their normal drops. Palace Lord Alchemars now randomly drop amazing wealth. Both beasts now flee their spawn spot to a random location.

EEoT and EEoGT are now craftable and thus can be made without ash.

Newbie Alch has been added (/na) which allows anyone to convert one rune to 999,999,999 gold. This allows all players to make use of runes and EEoT's as a source of gold for kingdom building, though without the convenience one would have with the ability to alchemize (/alch) at full value.

The trading delay has been reduced from 3 seconds to 1 second.

Two easy to slay surface beasts have been added.

Ash rushes have been added.

A quest item has been added that will allow you to teleport to the weak surface beasts only.

10/9/2004

Faulty hardware on the new server caused us to take the server down for repairs. Although we were able to repair the server much faster than anticipated, we still plan on implementing the game update as a reward for your patience during the downtime. Also there is a beast invasion scheduled for Oct 13th at 11:00pm EST.

10/7/2004

There was a short period of time where all kingdoms walked were wiped. Kings must resettle and rebuild their kingdoms and send an email to credit with your character name, kingdom locations, and total amount of value lost (in billions). Do not send an email if your losses are less than 50 billion. Players who attempt to steal kingdoms from their rightful owners will be banned. War is temporarily disabled.

10/6/2004

PayPal orders and the Money Order page have been fixed and are now working properly.

In the future /q players will be given a bonus of some sort. No matter what, however, /q players will still need to purchase a Beast Bane in order to teleport to all types of beasts. Buying Beast Bane does NOT overwrite your /q ability and will not change your eligibility for the upcoming bonus.

A long awaited update: the selected player name in the drop down menu will not change when you move kingdoms or new players enter/leave the zone unless the selected player leaves, in which case the name should change to Nobody. This will help prevent accidents and also aid in mass transferring of kingdoms.

If you or anyone you know is blocked from playing RWK from certain locations (such as at work) you can try accessing the game by its IP address: http://69.26.162.34/

10/5/2004

RWK was switched to a new and much faster server which is now located in Virginia. This should mean better performance for all our users.

10/3/2004

The SoS package is now available via PayPal for $225 but comes without the Devil`s Deliverance.

10/2/2004

There is a new purchase only item that allows you to teleport to beasts of all kinds. It is meant to even the playing field for new players who wish to have a chance at killing beasts.

The structure of Acument Inquests is being changed to allow for more participants and more $$$ prizes. The /q ability and approbations will no longer be awarded to anyone. The winner of the best plex award will still receive $500 credit. There will now be 128 participants in the Inquest as opposed to 112 and they will all be part of the same group. The two semi finalists will receive $100 credit each. The non-victorious finalist will receive $150 credit and the winner of the Inquest will receive $250 credit. The winner of the brawl (the winner must eliminate at least 5 other players in attack) will receive $100 credit. There will still be a beast invasion, level cap increase, and beast lists reset after the Inquest as always.

9/30/2004

Congratulations to Dakilla (West Hell Plex) and Diegoth The Dark (Northeast Surface Plex) for winning best Kingdom Plex awards and to Lardinho (Theurg) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and Brawl winners Murion+Kerchibard (Caster), Lord Sin (Theurg), Delg (Fighter), and Petermanna (Fighter). The next Inquest is scheduled for Oct 30th at 10:00pm EST.

9/29/2004

Mail sent to our location is now arriving without additional delays.

9/21/2004

New graphics have been added for D*Dev relics and Earthen drops.

Mail to our location is still delayed. Within a few days USPS should be back up to speed.

Vampires have a new quest.

The lower end caster and warrior quests have been improved.

9/16/2004

The Goblin Hide Backpack has been enhanced, see the /help site for details.

9/10/2004

Archer's who have no spells equipped will now be classified as Archer Theurgists. These hybrid characters will receive the innate bonuses of being both an archer (5x Cnc 5x Dex) and a theurgist (100x Cnc), but not receive the bonuses associated with specific types of archers or theurgists such as the newly added Archer's Aide or Theurg Orb. The intent for the Archer's Aide was to allow archers to equip spells and still have the huge Cnc bonus from being a Theurgist. The Archer's Aide will drop for Archer Theurgists, however, it will only work for Master and Grandmaster Bowmen.

Archer's Aide has been increased to a 500x Cnc bonus.

9/9/2004

Today is the 3rd anniversary of RWK and we are celebrating with a huge update. You should notice a new graphics patch available on the login page which includes images for some of the new beasts. Guard images are fixed in battle. Six new beasts have been added, 5 of which you cannot use /q to get to, 1 of which spawns exclusively on the surface. Over ten quest items have been added, some which benefit specific classes and others that can benefit everyone. You'll also notice the help site is now hosted on at http://www.racewarkingdoms.com/help/ so you should always be able to access it banner free.

8/28/2004

Congratulations to Raybone for winning the best Kingdom Plex award with his north/central Hell plex and to Lardinho (Theurg) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and Brawl winners Jesus Christ (Monk), Ohad The Devil (Monk), Mini Sammy (Monk), and Agent Of Saruman (Caster). The next Inquest is scheduled for Sept 30th at 11:00pm EST.

8/27/2004

Kingdoms with 0 morale will be automatically couped to help new players get kingdoms without angering their previous owners.

8/24/2004

If a kingdom's value is less than 10 billion (Armies, Forts, Runes, Tres, and Food count toward value) then it will lose 1 morale point every hour to help free up unfortified kingdoms for new players. Kings will receive a message when this occurs unless their Interest/Starving filter is on. There will be a 24 hour grace period for this addition where kingdoms will only lose .01 morale instead of the full point. Both Food and Morale gain interest as always.

Food now plays a role in war. If you attack a kingdom and you have more food than the target kingdom you will have a 20% war damage bonus. If the target kingdom has more food than you then you will have a 20% war damage penalty. If both kingdoms have the same amount of food there is no bonus or penalty. Remember that food is not consumed by your population when your population is greater than 10,000.

48 hour interest increases will now only work if you have BOTH the DoD and DwD equipped as was intended.

A major coup is now considered a coup of a kingdom who's value is over 10 billion instead of 10 million.

8/22/2004

The commands added yesterday to help embezzling have been changed and greatly enhanced. See the Actions page for details.

8/21/2004

The first installment of RWK's 3 year anniversary updates has arrived early. Check out the Actions page for details.

8/1/2004

Congratulations to Hannibal for winning the best Kingdom Plex award with his eastern Hell plex and to Lao (Monk) for winning the Acumen Inquest. Also congratulations to the other Inquest and Brawl winners Oddbin (Monk), Seraph (Monk), Raistlin Drakan (Monk), and Lilsamurai (Vamp). The next Inquest is scheduled for August 28th at 11:00pm EST.

7/7/2004

The FAQ has been updated with a new auction rule regarding trading items from other games. Type /faq while in the game to read about it.

A new special zone has been added: While in the Sky Shrine you will have a 10% greater chance of gaining skills. This, of course, stacks with all other skill chance bonuses.
