This is just a tip for new players...
As is true in any relationship, even with the friends you make in a game like Xsyon, it takes time to develop a working relationship with anyone.
When you look for a tribe to join, try and interact with them. Find out how they will treat you. Don't be hasty and join the first tribe that offers.
Think, what are my plans here...
Do you want to build and terraform to make a lasting mark in the world?
Want to become well known for crafting the best armors, or just want to live a quiet calm life having fun?
Then, find a tribe that will let you do those things... this is especially important for free to play players.
Most tribe will not let you build or terraform. Perhaps they feel you need to buy a monthly account before they will allow you to see the full range of what you can do here.
However, you can try it all out with some tribes. Often this will lead to new players becoming citizens, because the get the "bug". They see that its easy and fun to build and dream of all the cool things they can do.
A 15 story highrise, mighty fortress cities, tree houses with bridges, even underground housing!
So try it out! Choose your tribe well and build friendships and relationships with other like minded folk!
