Could someone out there talk to me about 'Alliances'?  

What do they do?  

Why become a member?  What are the benefits?  The costs?  The potential downside(s)?

It seems a lot of players are now signing up to alliances...What does the future hold if you don't?!  Is independence a viable option?

Can't answer your question as yet. However:
1. Alliances are basically a group of people who have agreed to help each other should the need arise.
2. Alliances charge can a Tax that comes out of your gold.
3. You can leave an alliance if you wish
4. Even if you are in an Alliance there are skills that allow you to do things behind their back if you are that way inclined.
5. At this point armiesand such are small enough that being in an Alliance is probably not required
6. However, if you leave it too long they may no be interested.
7. Only way to get into an alliance is to either create your own or to be invited.

Non Aggression Pact; I assume it means you won't go to war with them even if your allies are at war with them...

Anyone add more?

NAPs are Non-Agression-Pacts.  Alliances with NAPs between themselves cannot attack each other until the NAP is recinded, and subsequently war is declared.  NAPs do not, in and of themselves, have any direct bearings on the current Illyriad world (although they will do shortly - the current thinking is to extend the "War Pending" period between alliances who fall out with each other but were in NAPs substantially).  At the moment, however, they are a public declaration of who your friends are.

Confederations are an entirely different matter.  Having a confederation with another alliance will drag you into any wars that are declared by any alliance on any Confederation member or by any Confederation member.   On the plus side, Confederation members will also share data that they gather (scouting reports, military outcomes etc) with other members of any alliance in the Confederation.  This is, of course, pending the Diplomatic History and Military History report tabs that are very near the top of the development priority list!  Expect them towards the end of this week.

I'm writing an official guide to Alliances at the moment.  There's a lot to learn about them, so there's a lot to say - and because some things are in flux at the moment, I'm holding off "completing" the guide until they're completely settled in the code.

Best wishes,

It's really quite unusual, but very enjoyable and should really make this game a good one.

Agreed - I've played browser based games where the developers are basically AFK and it's a complete pain in the ass.

The devel team here are a huge plus point to this game.
