Choosing Your Citizenship
To become a citizen of a town, you need only enter the limits of the town's guard protection, where players with no allegiance will be prompted to become a citizen. If the prompt is closed or disabled, the following command can be spoken while present in the town you wish to be loyal to:
I wish to become a citizen
A screen will prompt you to make sure you wish to join.
When you become a citizen, all characters tied to your account will become citizens of that town, so chose your city wisely.
If you should ever need to know what city you are a citizen of, uttering "where art thou from" will cause it to display above your head.
Abandoning your current hometown
If you decide that you wish to join another city, at any time you may say:
I wish to revoke my citizenship
When you revoke your citizenship, this will also revoke the citizenship for all characters tied to your account.
After joining a town, you must wait five days before revoking your citizenship.
One hour after revoking your citizenship, your ties to your former city will be severed, and you may join another town.
There is a five day waiting period between switching towns again.
