Founded and lead by ZhouTagon, the house of Arthdal has been quietly securing a number of fiefs for itself to the east of the NA server, hoping to establish a degree of cordiality at home while forever fighting the forces of chaos (aka ChaoticNeutral) abroad.
How did you first find out about Conqueror’s Blade and what attracted you to the game?
I read about Conqueror’s Blade when researching similar games, such as Mount & Blade and others.
Why did you decide to set up a house in Conqueror’s Blade?
I usually like to set up guilds/clans so that I can create a specific atmosphere for people like me! A place to partake in any content and where actual friendships can form.
What do you think makes Arthdal different?
The main thing that sets us apart from the majority is that we realize all groups want to maintain their identity and that no single group can own everything. So, instead of forcing people to merge or be destroyed, we help friendly groups find a place in our region and work to maintain stability for all.
Arthdal has secured a decent amount of land. What has been the secret of your success?
Our success comes from the strong bonds our House has formed both internally and externally. Every member of Arthdal will tenaciously defend our House and its allies against any enemy, regardless of their strength!
What does the house hope to achieve?
The #1 thing Arthdal hopes to achieve is the maintaining of a healthy game with many different Houses and not just one or two massive groups. I’d like our legacy to reflect how we helped to establish the idea that, with cooperation and valor, a group of small-to-medium Houses can fight even the largest opponent!
What’s your favourite class?
At the moment I’m been swapping between Longbow and Shortsword!
What activities do you regularly engage in?
Our House really enjoys Deathmatch! It’s not uncommon for our best groups to win 10+ matches in a row!
Who are your most trusted warlords and what roles do they command?
Although I trust all of my House/discord officers; MitsukiChan, SunoZ, SeaPancake, Urahara, HeYi, SoulDevourer, and IMrMortis are my closest warlords!
If someone wanted to join your house or start a dialogue towards trade or establishing a pact, what should they do?
The only requirement our house has for recruitment is Discord! We accept all levels because everyone starts at 1! For diplomacy, any of our members will put you in contact with me!
Are there other houses that you admire or that you consider to be natural allies?
Besides my own alliance (TheKingdom and Valeria) I trust and admire Divinity and the Mythic Alliance! We also admired Sovereign for their resilience.
Conversely, are they are houses that you'd consider as mortal enemies?
There are players that will always be our enemy but, contrary to popular belief, I actually don’t consider any House/Alliance a mortal enemy. We have had some really intense wars with the RisingSun mega alliance and Radiance once that mega alliance disbanded! We don’t usually get along but those guys are strong.
Many thanks to ZhouTagon for answering our questions. If you know of a house that is deserving of similar recognition that we should profile in the future article, please make your nomination via our Discord channel.
