AL - QAUM
OUR NEWEST FAMILY
Congratulations to our newest Mod: Rofus!
As was explained in our first newsletter, Al'Khezam has moved more slowly than most kingdoms with establishing our governmental structure. We are steadily progressing, but we want to ensure that we establish the best structure we are able, so slow and steady will win the race. Coming SOON™will be our House of Commons, so keep your eyes and ears open for more information.
Here is a little peek at what our Minister of Foreign Affairs, Fred, gets up to when he is bored - I can't wait to see what comes from the things he is actually putting effort into!
Every month we will spotlight an individual Al-Qaum or organization and learn a little more than we knew.
This month we bring you Ghettomaster and the Duchy of Lemuria
What is the name of your duchy?
Lemuria, It’s the “Lost Land” that is believed to be a cradle of civilization before it was sunk.
What will be the main focal point(s) of your duchy? <economic, military, production etc...>?
We 're aiming for diversity and balance in the infrastructure and integrated industries based on the resources we gain in our territories in order to be able to bear the harsh days of Elyria. We’re not warmongers but if the drums of war begin beating then we are ready for it. We won’t hesitate to protect our interests. We rather are the veins that will feed nearby surrounding territories. Any sudden threat to us is a threat to all others' interests.
Will you focus more on pvp, pve, or a mix/balance of both?
I basically have always enjoyed the PVE and the progression rewards offered in story events, It’s so relaxing. :-)
Where will it be assuming, we get K5?
Lemuria is a coastal duchy, at the north east of Kingdom of Al’Khezam, located in the heart of grasslands sharing border with three grassland duchies. A massive coastline is present on the eastern side of the duchy.
What's your experience with gaming before this?
WoW was my first MMO then I moved on over to others like Dofus, Ragnarok, GW2, ESO. I tend to hop between MMOs, playing them a few months in a row and then moving on, that way when I return the game is fresh and new again. :-)
What's your experience with communities before this?
ESO, GW2 are the ones I experienced. Basically, a community behavior is largely a case of designing features that reduce conflicting player goals and encourage cooperation. These make a pretty good job of it.
Have you thought about a leadership structure for the duchy? Who will be helping to make it all happen?
Lemuria has opened its eyes to Elyria recently. The planned structure was a point of debate yet it has not seen the light yet. As result, solid foundations and pillars of the structure are meant to be adaptable as soon as the game mechanics progressing on in the near future and in coordination with the Kingdom’s interests as a whole.
You're a well-known, high influence community member with loads of EP, would you tell us what you're planning on doing with that EP?
This is the most common question I often get asked from people. To make things easier to understand for all of us, I will rephrase the question as it is bit hard to me. Am I going for sabotage and demolish savagely? No, I don't look forward to. I rather play the game basis I always dreamed about without I losing the trust and morals of good hearted people toward me. :-)
What do you, personally, want to do in game other than run your duchy?
The thing I most enjoy is getting to know new friends in-game from different cultures, and languages. It is a beautiful thing when people gather around who you have never met before and start to know each other as the game rolling. I’m planning to have an alternative character with some close friends to travel all around Elyria to experience and enjoy the adventures of the story’s events.
This has nothing to do with Lemuria, but I have to ask - what is the craziest thing you've ever done?
A friend of mine was a student in university, and he had one of the final exams that he was sure can’t pass it. So, he asked me to take his place and do the exam while I'm actually in a job. Unfortunately, I agreed after he begged me many times to do it and wasn’t aware of the risk of being caught. Later, that day of the exam has come so he picked me up from home and drove all the way to university and he sat in his car waiting for me while I was with all other students waiting to enter the classroom. The professor came and demanded all those who will do the exam to have a sit and place the ID card on the table. I sat and purposely didn’t place my ID on table, luckily, they did not check our IDs strictly as I thought. So, had the paper filled up and ready. The professor was looking at me suspiciously and asked if this is my only exam I have in this term? So, I had to lie and said yes, it is. And walked out of class.
Thank you very much for letting us know a bit more about Lemuria, I hope to speak with you again in a personal Q&A in the near future!
