In KO you start out as a petty landowner who must work his way up to maybe one day become King of one of the 14 castles! But the road is long and to get there you must fill your treasury by collecting taxes, organizing fairs, raid villages, attack other players or go on a holy crusade together with some of your friends!
But money is not enough to become King of the land, you will need soldiers to become strong enough to defend your own land and attack the enemy. Send out preachers to convert people to your side or simply go on a slave hunt and capture them that way. If your need for a workforce is larger than ever then you could go on an African expedition together with several other expanding players.
War isnât the only thing that keeps the world going. Play a game of dice to enhance your riches and if your ambitions are truly great than participate in jousting tournaments with your very own Knight who you can equip with various items you can find on a crusade! If you are clever enough than you can make loads of money by buying goods in one province and selling it at a large price in another but beware of Kings (other players) who are overzealous when it comes to taxing!
So youâve gathered a fortune, bought a mansion, won several tournaments, expanded your empire with a flourishing population. Then now is the time to claim the throne of one the castles for your own! Deploy catapults, trebuchets, rams, siege towers to improve your chances of winning the day but remember that the enemy king will have likely put down some serious defences such as killing pits, archers, iron gates, boiling oil , â¦
But the most important aspect is to have fun, kings online is completely free and will stay that way. Ideas are also very welcome as the game is open to expansions.
