Kingdom creation is part of the main quest. After forming your kingdom (or joining one of the others), the next quest is to defeat every faction in the game (they surrender when they have lost a certain amount of land). After that you are done with the main quest.how do you form a kingdom without completing this main quest ? like why im forced again? to complete it so i can have a kingdom? make it optional this quest line is complete boring clownfiesta.
I think the timer stops when you choose a side to support. Problem with that is that the conspiracy timer starts ticking and when that finishes, all empire or non-empire factions become allies and declare war on your faction. So there is still a time limit sort of. Correct me if I'm wrong though since I haven't played the main quest since the change.IIRC only the initial quest has a timer now, after that you're free to do as you wish.
