04/02/15 05:50 PM ASCENSION: The Next HIGH KING of KGB by JetStar

ASCENSION and the new office of KGB KING / QUEEN





The Knights of Glory and Beer has become a family over the last 18 years. In that time, as your High King, I have become older and I hope wiser. I have thought of my own mortality and the fact that I want KGB to continue after I am gone. I have been working closely with Prime Minister Romeo Montague over the last couple of months, and I am at a point where I am ready to share with you.

I have updated the KGB Constitution to include the rank of (GM10) KGB High King, and giving the (GM5) position to a new role called KGB King / Queen. Essentially, the King / Queen has most of the rights and privileges of the High King, but allows for a veto and a slight limitation on some powers. Upon the death , resignation, or inability to discharge the powers and duties of the (GM10) High King / High Queen, the (GM5) King / Queen would immediately assume the office of High King / High Queen as written in the new Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the KGB Constitution.

Operationally, the KGB King / Queen will have all accounting codes, passwords, and access to all KGB domain, computing infrastructure, and game account access needed to continue KGB long beyond my personal presence on earth.

Please take the time to review this by clicking the link to the KGB Constitution on the right column. I am going to submit this to the Senate for approval as I do most things, and I would appreciate your support.

If you had not guessed, Prime Minister Romeo Montague would assume the office of (GM5) KGB King immediately upon implementation.

The High King, and King will share the 5 star royal seal I have carried since I assumed the rank of High King from the rank of GuildMaster way back in 1999.

On a personal note, I have no plans to leave KGB ever, and am looking forward to several new games on the horizon.

Thank you for your support and attention. Long live the Knights of Glory and Beer.

NEW KGB SERVER


We has a disk failure yesterday morning, and I went to work. I ended up spending 13 hours and completely replaced the machine. We are running on mirrored SSD's now with i7-3820 with 32G ram. The Oracle virtual machine is now running with 8GB ram.

All in all we are back up and running with no data loss. The outage was almost 15 hours.

See you all soon.

09/16/14 12:35 PM KGB COMBAT VICTORIES IN ARCHAGE by JetStar

KGB COMBAT VICTORIES IN ARCHAGE


Reported by KGB's DonkLeaps

Today KGB began the path to GLORY!!!

After the completion of Ship #1 AKA "Froth Scraper" we awaited for members to gather materials and craft trade packs in order to go en masse to retrieve our must trusted allies "The Large Scarecrows".

These stalwart friends stand guard over our plots of land protecting them from the evils and weevils of the wild.



This valiant crew of adventurers were a sight to behold.

I APOLOGIZE FOR NO IN COMBAT PICS AS I WAS FIGHTING MY ASS OFF!!!!

As the crew of the "Froth Scraper" was returning form the rescue of the gallant Scarecrows we came across 2 enemy ships ferrying traders to peddle their wares in the west. Seeing an opportunity to strike, the crew plunged head long into the midst of the 2 ships splitting the duo formation and sending the enemy captains into panic.

One ship turned to offer combat trying to bide time for the trader carrying ship to despawn and allow their pack carriers a chance to flee.

After a quick sails down 180 turn "Froth Scraper" engaged the enemy combatants in a vicious broadside shootout. Our stalwart crew proved the better, quickly dispatching the enemy fighters and then sent a skeleton crew to board the ship.

Quickly the crew turned and hunted the pack carriers offering no quarter to the enemy and captured and secured all tradepacks.

All in all it was roughly 20 enemies killed and between 8-10 trade packs seized and 1 enemy clipper captured. (It auto despawned 10 minutes later)

After regrouping the crew set off to turn in the captured goods netting a solid profit from the spoils of battle.

However! upon leaving the port yet again an enemy clipper trading vessel was spotted coming in and immediately set upon. After several minutes of combat around the docks KGB once again proved victorious in smashing the enemy effort and capturing yet another enemy vessel.

10-12 kills were netted in this battle with roughly 5 escaping. KGB recovered and turned in roughly 6 trade packs from this.

After learning the lesson of the enemies disheartening disheartening ship technique the crew quickly enacted a plan to make sure the enemy would suffer.

The ship was brought to our shores and systematically dismantled with the help of shore batteries.

More adventure stories to follow.

I also could have sworn I took more screenies of during the ship battles but they are not in the folder so maybe i thought I was but miskeying....it happens.

06/26/14 07:39 AM Shroud of the Avatar KGB City? by JetStar

SHROUD OF THE AVATAR: KGB City?




KGB Supreme Knight Zhou brought up the idea of KGB having it's own property in SOTA. What do you all think?

Here are the details.

Lot Sizes in Meters (for reference):

Row: 10 x 15 = 150 sq
Village: 20 x 30 = 600 sq
Town: 30 x 40 = 1200 sq
City: 40 x 60 = 2400 sq
Keep: 60 x 80 = 4800 sq
Castle: 80 x 120 = 9600 sq

Holdfast: $750 12,600sq
Hamlet: $1200 19,800sq
Village: $1500 25,200sq
Crossroads Village: $2000 33,600sq
Town: $3,000 50,400sq
City: $4,000 67,200sq
Metropolis $5,000 84,200sq

I would be willing to drop the first $500.00. As with all guild owned assets, this would remain in control of the KGB Federal Government and all of you would have full access as long as you remain KGB citizens.

What do you think?
