The Utopian Genesis server is our experimental, less serious Utopia server in the Swirve.com Network and serves as a sort of testing ground for Utopia development. The Genesis Server for the age beginning in August 2007 is based on Utopia: The Age of Bravery and has the following unique rule additions:

- There are no Island Distance penalties.
- Less action is required to start war.
- Networth is only shown for provinces over $100,000.
- Provinces cannot reset themselves before the game starts.

- 50% more starting Honor
- 25% more Income
- 25% higher Food Production
- 25% higher Rune Production
- 25% faster Attack Times

- Humans will have +30% Income (from 25%) and +30% Science Effectiveness (from 20%)
- Elves will have +25% Spell Strength (from 20%) and no Wage Penalty
- Orcs will have -15% Science Effectiveness (from 25%) and $800 elites (from $1000)

- Merchants will have +15% Income (from 10%)
- Shepherds will gain immunity to Storms & Droughts

To help reduce server load, time "ticks" in Genesis 30 minutes ahead of the normal servers. For example, a Utopian Day will last from 1:30pm to 2:30pm instead of 2pm to 3pm.

Unlike our Primary Servers, the Utopian Genesis is not a continuing game. That is, when the games ends, players and kingdoms will not be transferred to a new round. You may play one account in this server in addition to an account in one of our primary gaming servers.
