Naps Maps and other relations.
Visual Utopia is a game that revolves around diplomacy. Be it with single players or kingdom to kingdom relations.
To become a successful kingdom you generally need relations with other kingdoms, there are many different kinds and some will be listed below.
The first and most common is the NAP.
NAP stands for Non aggression pact or Non attack pact.
Generally a pact of this kind means you do not attack each other, cast spells on each other or actively work to hurt the other kingdom.
Most kingdoms agree on a set of terms when signing a nap. An example of classic types of terms are shown below.

MAP/Alliance is also a common type of relation, MAP stands for Mutual assistance pact or Mutual attack pact, this is also known as an alliance.
Alliances form much closer ties and bonds between kingdoms.
When allied to a kingdom you will work together to defeat the same enemies and generally help each other out.
Cease Fire is a used when at war with another kingdom. You cease all attacks for a set number of ticks (agreed upon by the leaders) this is often a precursor to signing a nap.
WAR. War is a pretty self explanatory relation J
These are the Diplomatic relations used in Visual Utopia but remember they are not official or under the Admins control and as such can be broken at any time by some players.
A good idea is to build up friendly relations and trust with a kingdom before entering into a NAP.
I will include a player example of NAP terms below to give you an idea on what’s involved.

A note to lazy people like myself:
the nap proposition expample above has a 500% chance of getting you a nap. If you send someone that, they are either going to say 'go and become president of the USA' or 'wow, you are a good speaker, are you running for a government job or somthing?'
That happened to me once in another game :)

Ya, I'd be scared and run away.... Except that this was probably the terms for an Elements NAP, so they would have wiped out any KD I've ever been in
|21:52:24 Aug 3rd 08 - Mr. Earth:|
Well these are the terms for ZEON, Abydos, Music, Elements and who knows what other KDs :)

tbh if your going to need terms like that you dont trust the other kd so why bother napping at all :P
