Vice Kings get their own achievements

Vice Kings get their own achievements

A while ago, we introduced 5 new achievements for dukes. Now, only the vice kings have been missing their own achievement badges to add to their player profiles.

Vice kings act as “Hand of the King”; they earn a share of the taxes, protect the kingdoms’ treasures and helps to build an empire […]
