You can receive an Affiliation title by locating the clerk adjacent to the clerk that first bestowed citizenship and by typing ASK CLERK ABOUT TITLE. Affiliation titles appear after the character's name and post title and look like "of Zoluren" or "of Therengia."

Also possible are city-based titles. You can ASK ABOUT CITY to gain the new title. You may only pledge to a single city at a time, and it's in addition to your "of (province)" affiliation title. Claiming one of these new titles comes with an initial paperwork fee and will increase your monthly taxes as well.

Costs of Citizenship

Fees and Taxes

There is a charge to becoming a citizen that is a few gold. Additionally, every month, real life time, taxes are assessed whether you are in the game or not. Taxes typically cost a few gold as well. Please note some of these prices seem to be lower due to premium status. If you join and get a higher fee, please leave a note on the discussion page with the price, province and if you are premium or not.

Canceling/Changing Citizenship

In order to change citizenship to another area the existing citizenship must first be canceled. This is done by returning to the office of the province you currently have citizenship in and then typing CANCEL. Note that there is a fairly long waiting period of 30(RL) days afterward, before another citizenship with any province may be acquired. A fee is also added to your debt once you cancel.

Joining Fees, Upkeep Taxes, and Cancellation Fees

Taxes are charged approximately every 120 days (30 real life days).
