For the ruler's sex and skin colour, see: Monarch § Appearance.

The Kingdom's coat of arms[1] is the distinctive emblem displayed on the pause menu as a escutcheon and on the town center past the village tents tier as a banner. Its colors (tinctures) also appear on banners and shields around the Kingdom.

It's a cosmetic feature, with no impact on gameplay mechanics.

Every new Monarch is randomly assigned a fresh coat of arms.

New Lands & Two Crowns – For a custom coat of arms, players may use the blazon syntax or one of the available generators.

Classic Kingdom: Classic – Coat of arms are randomly generated at the beginning of a new Kingdom and there is no way to customize it (see history note). This article may still be useful for players to check the types of escutcheon and color combinations a kingdom may have.

BlazonEdit

This section is about New Lands & Two Crowns.

In heraldic terminology, blazon is the formal description of a coat of arms. In the game's settings, the player can set a custom coat of arms for the Kingdom by typing the blazon with the proper syntax in the text box and selecting "Set Blazon". That syntax is: [2]

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

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

Blazon Settings
  • Ordinary: the geometric patterns in the background.
  • Charge: the animal or shape in the center.
  • Tincture: 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.
Scotland

For example, navy a saltire white a lion red produces a navy-colored coat of arms with a white saltire and a red lion (image on top). There is a multitude of possible combinations for a Kingdom's coat of arms.

TincturesEdit

The table below displays all available colors that can be used on the background, the ordinary and the charge of the coat of arms.

Due to a bug, charges cannot have a tincture with a name that starts with another tincture name. For example, the game reads both "orange" and "orchid" as "or", as shown in their images. The colors falling into this are: Aquamarine, BlueViolet, Goldenrod, GreenYellow, LavenderBlush, Orange, OrangeRed, Orchid, and YellowGreen. They can, though, be perfectly used on the background and on the ordinaries.

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.

Two Crowns 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.

GeneratorsEdit

This section is about New Lands & Two Crowns.

Blazon editor (Two Crowns - console)

Blazon editor (Two Crowns - console)

Kingdom Two Crowns has an embed coat of arms generator (or blazon editor) that can be accessed by clicking on the heraldic shield on the pause menu. For New Lands, players may explore the instructions of this article and set a blazon themselves, or use one of the generators made by the community.

Achievement decorationsEdit

New Lands 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 menu's escutcheon, not changing any banner in the Kingdom's structures. These achievements with their rewarded decorations are listed bellow:

Achievement Requirements Decoration's description prvw
Birth of a Reign Escape any island. Carved leaves on both sides of the blazon. Birth of a Reign
Interior Decoration Escape 3 islands in a row without losing/restarting. A pair of deer antlers. Interior Decoration
Heraldic Achievement Escape any 5 islands in a row without losing/restarting.[4] 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 New lands blazon decor Blazon leaves skulls crown
A coat of arms with no extra decoration. One with antlers, leaves and candles. And another with skulls and crown.

Classic and Two Crowns – The pause menu's escutcheon 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.
