Q: Once I build a ship and leave the island, is the kingdom considered secure?
A: Hahahaha, that’s cute. Not even close.
Q: Does winter end?
A: Yes, winter does end in Kingdom Two Crowns You still need to prepare for it financially, however.
Q: How do I change monarchs?
A: You can only change the look of your monarch when you start a new campaign. During the loading screen, you’ll see a monarch above the status bar. While the monarch is still on the screen, press down arrow (A on controller) until you find the monarch you’d like to start with.
If you are joining someone’s multiplayer game, there is no way to select a monarch. The game will instead use the monarch from your current campaign.

Q: If you move from one island to the next, do the seasons reset?

A: In Kingdom Two Crowns, you will start over as an heir and rebuild the previous monarch’s kingdom. Anything you unlocked with gems previously will still be unlocked and only cost coins when you encounter them again. All seasons reset. All days reset. Difficulty of enemy waves resets.

Q: Can you earn more gems?
A: No, there are a finite amount of gems in the game! Be careful about losing them to the Greed and be mindful of what you spend them on, they don’t respawn even after death!
