Also known as Village Idol, this structure claims a large area (101 x 101) and creates a village. To interact with objects in this area one must be a member of the village, be partied with a member, activate criminal acts, or the village must have set permissions to the white group. The idol drains 5000 authority per in-game day while providing an initial 125,000 of village authority and the authority cap of 250,000.

How to Acquire

A village idol must be placed on a paved 2x3 area, far enough away from another village claim, Banner, or Statue of the Chieftain so that claims do not overlap and have an appropriate buffer zone. Once built, a cooldown of three game days (approximately 24 real hours) must be waited and then up to five characters can interact with the Village Idol. The first character to interact will become the Lawspeaker (given that Lawspeaking has been learned), otherwise an error message will be returned. Note that all of the founding members must possess the skill Yeomanry. Once a village name has been entered and Form Village! is pressed, after a few seconds the 30,000 LP cost will be divided evenly among the interacting characters and a village will be founded.

Visitor buff

Any character that walks through a gate on a village claim (or personal claim), unless they are a member/owner, receives the Visitor buff. Characters with this buff are unable to perform Criminal Acts, even with the toggle switched on. Essentially this means the gates of walled claims can be left open to anyone to show off your beautifully cultivated lands without having to worry about Theft, Vandalism, Battery or Murder.


Villages can only be expanded downwards across levels in mines from the level the Village Idol is on. Build the Idol on the highest level you want village access on and then expand downward.

It's also worth noting that Charter Stones can only be built on the surface level. If you plan on having one for your village, be sure to build the Village Idol on the surface.

A person can only be Lawspeaker of one village at a time. If the lawspeaker builds another Village Idol, they will lose the position at the current village they are lawspeaker of. It follows reason as a person can only be a member of one village at a time, and loses membership at their current village when accepting membership at a new village. --needs verifying
