Becoming part of the Living World is very easy and can be explained in three simple steps:
You can do this here right now, or at any time by clicking the “Account” button at the top right of your screen.
Once your registration is complete log in with your account and visit the Living World Page. By default, when you first visit the Living World, the map will load on the “Active Stories” layer – in this layer all pins are part of the ongoing campaigns players get to vote on.
Clicking on a pin will spawn a pop-up frame, a “decision node” presenting the situation you are being called to vote on and/or the lore surrounding the pin.
Once you’ve decided what to vote for, simply add the desired amount of votes on the preferred choice by pressing the “+” button then press the “Vote” button at the bottom of the pop-up frame. With the “-“ button you can remove a vote from the ones you’ve assigned but only before the “Vote” button has been pressed.
After pressing the “Vote” button, the system will upload your choice and a new pop-up will load, confirming that your votes have been cast and informing you of the Aghm you have gained; your points in the Account Ranking system. If you have multiple votes, you can distribute them as you see fit: putting one on multiple characters/choices or casting multiple votes on a single choice you really want to endorse. The choice is yours!
That’s it! You are now part of the collective lore-shaping experience that is the Living World, a member of a community that forges its own destiny when it comes to their favorite game and its lore!
Each user’s votes refresh every week, allowing players to see how the world is shaping before casting their votes again – or simply giving players a second chance to maximize their votes in that one all important decision. At the end of a TWO-WEEK period, the most popular choices and their attendant characters will be locked, as their decision is made.
For two weeks the selected characters and nodes will be unavailable as we update them, moving their story along the path the players chose. In the meantime, the players will be able to vote on the rest of nodes and decisions on the Living World, while new options will become available, based on previous decisions. That way, we ensure that all characters will be “activated” and their decisions will be taken, so the world will advance naturally on all fronts.
Every Para Bellum account has a rank. Each player will have several votes determined by the RANK of his account. Account RANK increases with “Aghm”, experience points earned by specific actions and that can increase your rank. During the first stage of our launch, these include:
This list will soon expand, including anything from participating in Organized Play events to making purchases from our e-shop!
As one’s account rank increases, so do the number of votes one has each week as well as other perks which will range from access to limited edition miniatures all the way to getting your character and armies written into the lore of Conquest for posterity!
We will update this information soon, so stay tuned!
