You have slain the mightiest of creatures, walked the most challenging of paths and mastered the most delicate of arts. You are a hero, forged by the very fabric of Gielinor, your name truly etched into the foundation of our great game.

However your legs grow weary. You long for a sense of belonging, a sense of family and community. Indeed a place to call your own, a place to call your home.

It is with esteemed pleasure therefore that I welcome you to our vibrant thread, magnificent people and wonderful community.

Welcome to our home. Welcome to The Grand Kingdom.

A little bit about us...

The Grand Kingdom ( TGK ) is a RuneScape playing society that acts as a POC (Player Owned City). We embrace many different roles, offering an array of opportunities and cultures to immerse ourselves in a fictional world, allowing us to sculpture our own events, stories and ultimately our own legacy.

Whether you are looking for a home, here on diplomatic terms, seeking information or interested in our structure, we welcome you to our thread. The Grand Kingdom is a POC that was founded in 2007-08 by Queen Adara and King Lylylylyly in the First Age, mastered by King Criax Ranour in the Second Age and regrown by King Flat Jack in the Third Age where the story now continues.

A POC is a clan that uses mild role-play to behave as a Kingdom, Empire, or Republic. Very few RuneScapers have heard of a POC, but those that have been a part of one know that it can often define your RuneScape experience. We focus strongly on a sense of community and family. It is indeed a fine area to specialise in.

This is the Third Age of The Grand Kingdom, recreated from the fine POC that once thrived in our earlier years. We are here to honor history and to bring back the golden days of Player Owned Cities. Please feel free to further read through our thread for more information. We would love for you to be a apart of it!

Why Join The Grand Kingdom?

The Grand Kingdom is more than a clan. It is a community of friendly, mature members that are looking to enhance their RuneScape experience. With a strong emphasis on respect, progress and believe, TGK hopes to set the benchmark for POC's.

We are proud of these core values. We are unique, with our own living structure steeped in tradition and history. With over 8 years of POC experience, we have seen it all, from achievement, victory and fame to anarchy, betrayal and revolution. However the story does not stop here, for it is you that must join our journey and continue writing our legacy.

Within our walls there is much to do and much to see. Those interested in external affaires will find the fruits of their labour in the Diplomacy Department, while internal affaires of law and order echo out of Judiciary. It would be unjust for me to not mention our great Senate who legislate our Kingdom, those who are politically engaged will find belonging here.. or maybe a pious life is one for you? where Sainthood may await in our Monastery branch. Last but not least, every great Kingdom has fitting military might, conquer our enemies and lead our people to victory will quickly progress your career in the Military. The choice is yours.

We really do hope that you feel your future lies within our community. We would love for you to fill out our Citizen Application located a few posts below this. Further information regarding certain aspects of the Kingdom can be found on Page 2. Please don't hesitate to contact myself, a member of the Royal Family or a Head of Branch regarding any queries!

The Noticeboard is at the very heart of our community, recording any and all news relating to the day-to-day life of the Kingdom. Content may vary, from the initiation of new TGKians, to the passing of old ones. It might even be a Kingdom story, an event or an important update. The Noticeboard acts as an living newsfeed for TGK and TGKians are warmly encouraged to check in regularly.

Heros Tempus has been promoted to General of the Military and is therefore appointed as Head of the Military branch. Heros' knowledge of the game combined with his outstanding loyalty to The Grand Kingdom put this decision beyond all doubt. I thank the General for his contributions so far (I'll be joining the Bandos marathon later I promise!) and look forward to working with him into the future.

KathleenMe0w has been promoted to Deputy-Chancellor of the Senate and is therefore appointed to the post of Deputy-Head of the Senate Branch. A decision made by the Chancellor with the full support of the Monarchy, Kath is deserving of her new rank and I look forward to seeing her extended contribution to the Kingdom.

Fluseuf has been promoted to the Archpriest of the Monastery and is therefore appointed to the post of Advisor of the Monastery Branch. Fluseuf has been instrumental is pursing the roleplaying side of the POC genre and again, a decision that was entirely justified. I congratulate him and look forward to seeing what he can do with the platform he now has.
