The Races of Utopia

One of the most intriguing features of the Utopian world is the diverse creatures that inhabit its lands. While many creatures live amongst the woods and seas of the world, only a few live in societies, in communities which you can lead. There are currently eight Utopian races - you will be required to choose one upon signing up. Their individual characteristics are described below.

The Role of Personalities

Your Utopian Race defines some of the fundamental strengths and weaknesses of your province. However, your background also plays a part in how your citizens grow and learn. When you create your account, you will also select from one of eight Personalities, each with unique benefits. This further defines the basics of your province. You can select a Personality to help further develop a strength of your race or possibly counter a weakness. Your strategy is up to you.

The Role of Race & Personality

FOR NEW PLAYERS: The combination of race & personality you choose will guide how you play the game. The first time you play, it is probably best to pick a combination that seems to complement each other - for example, a race and personality that are good at Magic. As you gain more experience in the game, you will better understand the benefits and drawbacks to various combinations. Do not worry if you make a less-than-ideal selection, as your first exposure to Utopia will serve as a learning experience for the future.

Game mechanic changes

The explore formula will be tweaked to relate to the size of the kingdoms provinces. The more you are over the median the more expensive it will be to explore. If you are the only province in your kingdom it will be more expensive.

Paradise will remove acres from the explore pool, which will now grow 5 times faster (i.e 100 acres an hour) and also decay .5% an hour. This decay will not occur during war or end of war ceasefire.

Winning a war and selecting land as a reward will grant a minimum of 5k acres to the kingdom.

Players will be able to abandon and leave their province to the kingdom even if that kingdom has no invitations left.

The war room will be updated to better help players calculate their attacks. I'll provide more detail on this when I have it.

Espionage operations will be completely accurate if players send 10% of their thieves. This accuracy will be conveyed in some way to the player (yet to be decided but probably via the espionage message, updates will follow when they are available).

Espionage operations will be able to be conducted through in game ceasefires.

Monarch bonuses will be removed

Monarchs can set a fellow kingdom mate as their Steward (replaces Chamberlain). The Steward can conduct diplomacy such as extend/accept ceasefires, declare war and update the throne room messaging for the kingdom as well as the old Chamberlain options.

The Anonymity spell has been modified. This spell will result in minus attack gains rather than additional attack time. Apart from this the spell works as before.

Honor phase-in at age start has had the amount per tick doubled and the overall time halved.
