Hail and well met fellow innkeep or tavern (what do they call male wenches?).
As you are planning to pledge up to Alpha I access (Magistrate), does that mean you are seeking to run a settlement? If not, might I suggest you check out the a-la-carte option which will allow you to add Alpha I access on to a lower tier.
In either case, I would like to extend you an invitation to my county, Asbrekka. We are not hardcore RP, but do welcome it. Currently there is space for many more citizens and only a select few more mayors. Come hang out in our Discord some time and get to know us.
I wish you the best on your journey here in Elyria.
