The Citadel is not mandatory but the XP is very good. The Quartermaster’s Bonus can go on any Citadel Skill & the Fealty Bonus can go on the Skill of your choice. It is also a good place to collect Rocks/Golden Rocks. There may be an odd week when due Holiday’s or Absences that we struggle to make our Up-Keep for that week. In that rare event if it looks as though My Cap & Avatar’s Cap are not sufficient to meet Up-Keep, I hope no-one minds if I put out a shout in F/C asking for help in gathering resources (either a cap or part cap). This would be at a weekend. If anyone needs help with the Citadel or with which resources to gather please give me a shout in game.
