How joining SK works, from application to final acceptance
Step 1: Applying
The first thing you should do if you want to join SK is apply in-game. You can find our page by going International -> Alliances -> Seven Kingdoms. Once on our in-game page, press the join button. Once you have applied in-game, you need to submit an application on our forums. You can find our forums here, or by clicking the Forums button at the top.
Step 2: The Academy
Once your application is accepted, you will be masked as an Errant and sent to our Academy. As an Errant you are a limited SK member, with certain basic SK services available to you: your nation will be protected by the Seven Kingdoms, you will have access to some members-only forums, you can qualify for limited aid packages, and you can participate in the House Games if you wish.
Those who can show they are experienced players with well developed nations may be granted waivers and sent straight to the IRC interview. Most new recruits, however will have to go through the academy.
The SK Academy is designed to help you get acclimated to Project Terra and demonstrate your commitment to the alliance. It has guides on every aspect of the game; no matter what you may need help with, we have the advice for it. There are 3 tests you have to pass in order to complete the academy. If this sounds daunting, don't worry, after a few days of playing and a read-through of our guides you should be confident in your basic PT skills and able to pass the tests in very short time.
Step 4: IRC Interview
Once you pass the tests, it is time for the last step in the application procedure; the IRC interview. This is where the Grand Maester (and sometimes the King too) will ask you a few questions before your final promotion. Don't worry, you won't have to dress up and we won't try and trip you with trick questions or anything. This is just so that we can get to know you a bit better before you are promote to full member.
Step 5: Acceptance
Once you are done with the interview, you will be promoted to Subject and become a full member of the Seven Kingdoms! As a full member you will have access to the members IRC channel, the rest of the forums, much more generous aid and loan packages and the rest of our guides (including the expert laws and research guides)
