"Kolbjorn first broke the land around the Veitvast,
His family now sits in unbroken line by that water,
Their Halls ringing with mead and laughter."

"You have made enough of an impact upon the world to begin thinking of some certain parts of it as being your own. You may construct Claim Poles, and begin claiming private plots of land around them."


The ability to stake a claim on land, making it and everything on it your property. This includes the inside of log cabins, timber houses, and stone mansions. It is recommended that you stake a claim before starting a serious settlement, as unclaimed settlements can be robbed without any use of criminal acts.

Claim Interface

Once an area is claimed, there will be a post with a skull on it. The owner of the land can right click this to bring up the private claim interface. From here, he can choose to extend the claim in any direction at the cost of 10 LP per square meter. Claims can only be rectangles.

The set of colors near the bottom are linked to the colors on the landowner's kin list. If he wants anyone under that color to be allowed to Trespass, Steal or Vandalize, then he must select that color and check the corresponding checkboxes.

Reset will only roll back unpurchased claim extensions.


Declaiming DOES NOT reward any LP used back, and all Materials used will be lost.


If you Trespass on someone else's claim you will leave a trespass scent, allowing you to be tracked down and punished. Most players won't kill you over a trespass but its still better to avoid it.

Opening a container only leaves a trespassing scent, but stealing items from a claim leaves a theft scent.


  • Clicking on the white skull above the minimap will highlight all personal claims owned by other players in pink. Your own claim will be highlighted in blue. Claim Pole will automatically claim a 5x5 tile square area with the pole in the center. Factor this into placement near other claims or you can overlap another claim and end up unable to extend yours in their direction as 2 players can't claim the same tiles.
