Basic gameplay[edit | edit source]

  • To increase your nation's power, expand the base. Houses increase the population limit, Archery and Barracks allow recruiting new units, Shooting Towers and Wells build up your settlement's defenses, reinforcing it against enemy attacks.
  • The Resource Bar at the top of your HUD shows the amounts of resources you own, and their dynamics (a positive number means, you produce more than you consume). Wood is a primary resource of the game. Food determines your ability to maintain an army (without it, morale drops and you might be forced to Dismiss some of your squads). Iron is used to research technology and upgrade the nation.
  • To build your army, you need enough resources, a military building in your base, and free slots in your population limit (Resource Bar at the top). To create a squad, select your desired squad icon inside the Recruit tab of the Command Menu. Notice that each squad has different requirements, listed in the menu on the right side of the screen.
  • To capture a village, first command your squads to set it on fire, then occupy it to take it over (both actions are reflected by the status bar above the village's main building). Villages can have four levels of defense: no defense, brown, silver and gold - all reflected by the outline of village's status bar. The higher the defense, the more troops are needed to take it over, and more soldiers might die while they capture the village.Take notice, that capturing stops upon enemy soldiers entering the village.
