This has been increased to 100 prestige, but is now awarded when referred player reaches 450 population (ie enough for a second city), rather than 100 population.

As well as the new build times and production rates which will effect all players for all their new cities, we have changed some things specifically for new players.

Starting research points is now 500 rather than 200.

The tutorial has been streamlined again, with the full flow as follows:

The following two sets are simultaneous depending on whether haggling has completed, and it auto advance to the second one when it does:

This is then followed up with the following IGM:

Hello again!

I wanted to take a moment and send you a helpful IGM (in-game-message) in the hopes that you will not feel overwhelmed during your first few days in Illyriad. It is a massive game with many different modes of play, and so I put together a list of links and information that you might find handy. 

Keep in mind that GC (general chat) is one of the best places for information, along with an alliance. 

But, beyond that, you might feel like searching for information on your own. Check out these links:

First," rel="nofollow - look at our YouTube page . It's filled with helpful videos and interviews. 

Next," rel="nofollow - you'll want to seek the official forums . While you don't have to sign up to read most of the posts, you will need to register if you want to take part in the discussions there.

If you need help with player issues (let's say you think someone is breaking the rules) then contact me, GM Rikoo." rel="nofollow - Here is my in-game profile.  Click on my name and hit "send message." All of the current rules are on that profile as well. You agreed to follow these rules when you agreed to play, so be sure to read up on them!

If you need to report a tech-related issue," rel="nofollow - file a petition instead

If you want to change your chat options (like font size)" rel="nofollow - do so here

Last, I want to let you know about our philosophy on "buying power." Many games allow you to purchase resources or even fighting units. We do not." rel="nofollow - We sell prestige . Prestige will make a building finish faster, will buff your resource output slightly and will give you a slight buff to military power. These buffs are slight, however, so player knowledge and skill is still the greatest weapon in Illyriad. 

Most players do not purchase prestige, which is fine. Feel free to play the game for absolutely no money! 

You cannot speed up research times. Most new players ask about that. Research times are the great "brake" in Illyriad; they help balance the game. Luckily, the first few hours in Illyriad should not be too bogged down with long builds and research times.

Remember, if you have any questions about gameplay, try your alliance chat or general chat. If you have an issue with player behavior, cheating or any other "rules" type issue, contact GM Rikoo. (That's me!)

Now, go conquer the world! 

GM Rikoo

Looks good!
Just clarifying....
Does the 100 pres referral bonus get delivered when the referred played reaches 450 pop (as says at top) or when they build city 2 (as the tutorial says)?
Also (minor) your mail on completing the tutorial says GC stands for 'general chat' rather than global :)
