Benefits of Parish
Depending on how active your Parish is in the Stronghold Kingdoms, you may receive differing amount of benefits in the game. The first straight forward benefit is that the steward and fellow Parish players may send out reinforcing troops to help you defend your village when you are under sttack.
Being in a Parish is about contributing for a central goal, because it is faster to help a starting player to grow fast at the beginning of the game, you may request some starting resources help if you are willing to contribute to your Stronghold Parish in the future.
Lastly, the Parish buildings can increase all of the village for the players inside the Parish. These building benefits include Parish buildings that improve your village productivity or castle defenses.
Contributing to Stronghold Kingdoms Parish Growth
There are multiple ways in which you can make your Parish stronger. Below is a guide list of these potential methods:
Stronghold Kingdoms Parish Tithe Tax
Your village is taxed on a daily basis based on the number set forth by your Steward. Be having some gold in your Village, you will be taxed accordingly. To really help your Parish, always keep some gold available so that they can flow to your Parish buildings.
You can check the Parish buildings that your Parish has, and you can donate resources to the various buildings to help them upgrade. Whenever you have resource pluses, donate them to your Parish whenever possible. You can follow the following method to donate resources to your Parish to help its building upgrades:
Click on the parish tab on the toolbar when in your village screen. Click on any of the Parish buildings. Click Donate resources and use the slider to change the type of the Stronghold Kingdoms resources that you want to contribute to the Parish.
Goods Selling and Trading
Whenever possible, always trade with your Parish Capitals as the Parish Capital will gain some gold per trades.
Voting for Parish
To determine the Steward for your Parish, the person will have to be voted Yes by the players within the Parish. To start voting for one player, you must have reached a rank of 4 (Peasant). Each village that you own will generate three votes per day. This means that the more village that you have in a certain Parish, the more political say that you will have.
To become the Steward of a Parish, you will need to be rank 6 or above (Villein). It should be noted that the Stronghold Kingdoms leaders need to constantly be voted for, as their vote count decreases daily. In addition, the leaders may earn Stronghold Kingdoms glory points for their houses.
Erecting Stronghold Kingdoms Parish Buildings
To build the Parish buildings, you will need to have flags available. One new flag is generated every 18 – 36 hours. However, the Stronghold Kingdoms Parish Flags may also be stolen from other parishes. Flags may be stolen from other capitals by attacking them. If a parish member attacks another capital, the flag will go to the parish that their village is located in. This flag capture game may hinder another Parish growth while at the same time helping yourself when needed. However, the attacks for the flags may often lead to war inside the game.
