Castle instanced zones

Political cooperation

Castles control the territories they own.

Besides townships and castles, there are also Fortresses in the world of Lineage 2. One or two fortresses are located in each territory. Each fortress can choose to be politically involved with, or independent from, the castle(s) in that territory. A fortress will shift into an independent state when the fortress-owning clan leader decides to declare independence, or if no decision is made during the one hour that the Special Envoy NPC is present. When a fortress is in an independent state, it is possible for a castle-owning clan in the same territory to register a siege upon that fortress.

Fortresses make contracts with Heralds when the siege is over. When a fortress becomes contracted, the fortress-owning clan must pay a tax to the territory's castle every six hours. The taxes are automatically deducted from the Clan Warehouse. If the fortress-owning clan does not have enough Adena in their Clan Warehouse, the state of the fortress automatically switches from contracted to independent.

When a fortress is contracted, all of the fortress-management features can be used; however, entry into the instanced dungeons will be restricted. When a fortress is contracted, the fortress-owning clan can receive supply items by speaking to the Logistics Officer NPC. The supply items level will be increased every six hours when taxes are paid.

For every supply item delivery,Репутация клана.jpg 2 reputation points will be deducted from the castle-owning clan. If the castle-owning clan’s Reputation Points drop below two points, the supply item level will stop increasing and the leader of the fortress-owning clan will be notified by the system message.

The supply items level can increase up to level six. If the fortress-owning clan receives Supply Items from the Logistic Officer NPC, the supply items level resets to zero. The castle-owning clan can use the instanced dungeon within their castle if there is a fortress in their territory that they are in a contracted state with.

Choosing between Light and Darkness

When a siege is over, you can choose a side: Light or Darkness.

Tax system

  1. Only Castles of Darkness can collect taxes.
  2. Taxes are added to the castle treasury every Monday at 12:00.
  3. Aden and Rune get additional taxes from their subordinate castles.
  4. Taxes are deducted from the price of goods bought from trading NPCs on the castle territories.
  5. When any goods are purchased on a Castle of Darkness territory, a tax of 30% is applied. A certain part of Adena is removed from the game, the rest is transferred to castle owners.
  6. The Adena transferred to castle owners is divided into the tax which remains in the castle treasury, and the tax transferred to the main castle.

Sieges

The castles in the world of Lineage 2 at first are managed by NPCs. When one of the clans defeats the defenders of a castle and gets it, the clan starts owning that castle. If a castle owning clan is dismissed, the castle goes back to NPCs.

Only castle lords can set up the siege time. To do so, they need to talk to their Chamberlain. Be careful as once the choice is made, it cannot be canceled until the siege is over. In 24 after getting the castle the lord needs to set up the time of the following siege. otherwise the time will be set automatically.

Castle walls cannot be damaged in the period of peace. Only during sieges they can be damaged. Castle sieges occur on Sunday, two weeks after the previous siege, The period of two weeks is the time when the lord and the clan members can fully enjoy the benefits of their property.
