Armadylean voting board and lectern

The Lectern located to the right of the Armadylean quartermaster

During The Bird and the Beast world event, players managed their faction's army by voting in the Army Management interface. This was done by using the Battle plans on a table (for Bandosians) or the Lectern (for Armadyleans) on the ground floor, or by talking to the Armadylean record keeper or the Bandosian record keeper. The voting was done in phases, each phase lasting 5 days.

The management interface was used to recruit more army (bodyguards, ambushers, and battle-mages), and to improve morale. After voting, players claimed bonus experience for any desired skill. This bonus experience was received when training the skill in which the experience was chosen. Although free players could claim the experience, they had to become members to be able to use the experience.

Army management ended at the end of phase 7.
