    Player Run Town Recognition Criteria

    Community Size and Allegiance
    If you have a player run town or community of at least four houses you will be able to apply for town recognition and status using the following criteria:

    4 Hamlet – Hamlet Banner

    5-11 Village – Village Banner

    12-17 Town – Town Banner
    18+ City – City Banner

    Town recognition is available to all facets.

    Requirements for Recognition

    Cohesiveness. Something that shows the owners of each house consider themselves part of the township.

    Activity. This may take any of several forms, such as: frequent meetings, events, hunts, or residents who are frequently in the town and available to interact with visitors.

    History. Your town must be at least three months old. Ideally, there should be an archive of town records either in game or outside of the game.

    Communication. Visitors to your town should have a way to learn about its history and upcoming events. They should also be able to communicate with the inhabitants. This can take place wholly in game, such as with books, barkeeps, a mailbox, and/or a message board, or it can be on a website.

    Examples of Banner Design

    To give you an idea of what is acceptable and the various "levels" of banner for your settlement we have included some sample ideas below:


    To Petition for Recognition and a Banner
    Please send your applications for town recognition to

    These should include:

    1. Town name

    2. Town location [use a sextant to give us the co-ordinates]

    3. When it was founded

    4. Allegiance [Crown or Rebel]

    5. Number of houses

    6. Suggested coordinates for the banner

    7. Inside UO numbers for the components of the banner

    8. Your choice of proposed banner and colours

    9. As well as answers to these questions:

    A) Cohesiveness: Which houses are part of the town and what marks a house as part of the town?
    B) Activity: How does your establishment or town promote a vibrant community?
    C) History: Where can one find more information about the history of your town?
    D) Communication: How would visitors to your town normally communicate with its inhabitants?

    Application taken from the Europa EM Website.

    I think its great, its about time that Towns can get soemthing like that. Its been around for years on Asian shards.

    Hope it wont just be for RPers. This might be great for players who own plots in same area to make a Town themselfs. Not just for RP but more for Museum and such.

    Good initiative for Community.

    Spiritwood and Deepwater should apply, if not eaten by the historybooks.
