The Blazon is the Kingdom's coat of arms. Its colors appear on banners and shields around the Kingdom. Every new Monarch is randomly assigned a fresh Blazon. The player can alternatively choose to set the Kingdom's Blazon manually through the game's settings. There is no way to change it manually on Nintendo Switch.

The Blazon and its appearance have no impact on gameplay mechanics; it is a purely cosmetic feature.

classicIcon Classic Kingdom: Classic – Blazons are randomly generated at the beginning of a new kingdom. They are visible at pause screen and appear in the scenario with the village tents. The ability to lock blazons for future kingdoms was removed from the game.

The generated blazon could be made permanent by spending 3 coins on the banner. If a player wished to go back to randomly generated blazons, it cdould be done by double-clicking on the shield in the pause menu. The blazon used to become once again randomly generated once this was done correctly.

Creating the Kingdom's BlazonEdit

Blazon Settings

In the game's settings[1], the player can set the Kingdom's Blazon by typing a phrase with the proper syntax in the text box at the bottom and selecting "Set Blazon". That syntax is:

[1st Tincture], [Ordinary] [2nd Tincture], [Charge] [3rd Tincture]

(Commas are included here for clarity and should be removed.)

  • Ordinary refers to the geometric patterns that appear in the blazon's background.
  • Charge is the animal or shape that appears in the center.
  • Tincture refers to the color or metal of the prior feature.
    • The first tincture is the primary color for the Kingdom, and it appears on the King's cape, on the Queen's dress and on banners.
    • The second tincture modifies the ordinary, and it appears on banners and shields.
    • The third tincture modifies the charge.

For example, Navy a saltire white a lion red produces a navy-colored blazon with a white saltire and a red lion. There is a multitude of possible tinctures, ordinaries, and charges for a Kingdom's Blazon.

OrdinariesEdit

The articles (i.e. a/an) on the following are required — discluding the last six, repeated-pattern ordinaries (lozengy, chequy, bendy, bendy sinister, chevronny, and five annulets.) A blazon must have exactly one ordinary, so if the player wants a solid background, he or she can choose any ordinary and make it the same colour as the background.

twocrownsTwoCrowns Kingdom: Two Crowns – The shogun version of the ordinaries look quite different. They don't show charges although they have to be defined to work properly.

Achievement decorationsEdit

newlandsIcon NewLands Kingdom: New Lands – There are four common and one special achievement that grant unique decorations to the blazon. These decorations only appear on the pause screen's blazon, not changing any banner in the kingdom's structures. These achievements with their rewarded decorations are listed bellow:

Achievement Requirements Decoration's description Preview
Birth of a Reign Escape any island. Carved leaves on both sides of the blazon. Birth of a Reign New Lands
Interior Decoration Escape 3 islands in a row without losing/restarting. A pair of deer antlers. Interior Decoration
Heraldic Achievement Beat any 5 islands in a row without losing/restarting[5]. A pair of lit candles on metal candle holders. Heraldic Achievement
Crowned Escape the 5th island. A golden Crown on the top of the blazon. Crowned
Skull Island Destory all portals in the Skull Island. Four skulls at the bottom of the blazon. Skulls icon

All decorations are removed if the player starts a new game from the map, except for the skulls and the crown — these can only be removed after deleting the save files and starting a brand new save game.

Blazon no Decor

A blazon with no extra decoration.

New lands blazon decor

classicIcon Classic Kingdom: Classic – The pause screen blazon also has decorations that are based on the Monarch's success. They appear to persist across different Monarchs, but their connections to achievements are less visible. The crown seems to be awarded for winning 1 game. The carved leaves also exist...
