Tips and more info:
Every player has “power”. The power can at most be 10 and at least be -10. If you die you lose 2 power. The power will be restored over time, but only while the player is online; while offline, their power will not regenerate. It takes 5 min for 1 power to be restored.
The power of a faction is the sum of all member power. Every power grants the faction right to claim one land/chunk. You can claim land from a faction if it has to low power.
If you claim land from another faction you must start at the border of their territory.
There are certain colors for certain relations in the chat messages:
Members are green, Allies are purple, Neutrals are white and Enemies are red.
Important tip: Only promote players you really trust to moderator. They can do a lot of damage to a factions if they have bad intentions!
