Chieftains
Tribal Chieftains are the leaders of the game. Collaborating with their Tribe and Land Owners to reach the Apex pinnacle of the game: Ruler of the Banana Kingdom.

Chieftain NFT holders are the only players in the game able to launch their own tribe. Starting out as an Unknown Chieftain leading a tribe of up to 10 players in the unique region marked on their NFT. Chieftains will grow and lead a tribe into battle for land, status and big monthly tournament prizes.
Let's talk class. In the Kingdom, there are 5 classes of tribes: The Unknown, The Settled, The Elite, The Kong's, and the Apex's. These 5 classes are known as "Regional Status" classes. For your tribe to enter into one of the 4 regional status classes, you have to lead your tribe into battle for the status class NFT, or buy it on the open market. Chieftains who attain a higher status class for their tribe will reap the benefits of higher earnings in many ways.
See Regional Status NFTs for more.

The majority of the games Tribal Chieftains won't belong to any status class. It's unknown where they may venture to, what lands they may conquer, and what class they belong to. All chiefs begin the game as a great big Unknown — but with the potential to rule the Kingdom.
Chieftains earn the highest percentage of all tokens expended by players in their tribe. That percentage goes up for Chieftains who conquer land. See the 2 earnings sections below.
Tribes with no regional status get to compete in the Tournament of the Unknown. Held monthly, it's the most unique tournament in the Kingdom. The top 3 winning tribes in each region are allowed to recruit 40 Wanderers from their region and will go on to compete in Tournament of the Apex's, getting a chance at the Kingdom's biggest monthly prize pool and a shot at dethroning the Ruler of the Banana Kingdom. Unknown tribes working together with the Kingdom's Wanderers are the only players (outside of Apex Tribes) that get a clear shot at the throne without being in an Apex Tribe.
Read the backstory that led to this tournament in the "Wanderers" section of the Story Mode page.

Chieftains who conquer land get 15% of all tokens spent on that land by all players in or outside of their tribe. Their Oracles get 3% and another 2% goes into their Commander Armory.
Chieftains can challenge any other Chieftain of the same class or higher in PvP battle and accept fights from any Oracle. Winning can net you either Banana Token or the opponents Tribal Rank NFT, and in some instances both.
Chieftains can also initiate tribal battle, whenever they'd like, against any other land holding tribe within their region (of the same class or higher) in TvT battle for land. They can also challenge any other tribe of the same class to a fight for Status and Banana Tokens, and accept fights from other Tribes of the same or of a lower status. Note: tribes of the same status cannot fight each other for their own status NFTs.
