Biped has asked that this be posted here to recruit new players. It's free and simple. It's called Travian, and basically, you build villages, trade, engage in diplomacy, fight wars, invade others and build alliances. It's cheap as chips, or free depending on how you play it. We now have the ARRSE Alliance in this game and are building up resources to start attacking opfor. We have 71 members of Arrse and plus a few civvies that we have twatted into submission and now toe the party line - I suspect we will soon by the biggest, baddest boys on the block! You need to sign up for the UKX 'Speed3' server to join the ARRSE Alliance. For anyone looking to sign up, follow the link: http://www.travian.co.uk/?uc=ukx_23308 READ THE MANUAL BEFORE PICKING YOUR TRIBE AND AIM FOR THE SOUTH WEST OR NORTH EAST/WEST AREAS, THERE ARE LESS OF US THERE. INSTRUCTIONS: Quickest way to build a village to make settlers is: Build on resource fields in this order: Clay 1 Wood 1 Iron 1 Wheat 1 Then same fields to level 2, then to level 3. Now start new fields and build them up in that order and so on so on. That gives you the quickest resource build up. Main building to 5, warehouse to 8, granary to 7, residence to lvl 10, then rally point lvl 1 and build your 3 settlers. That is the fastest way to get yourself a new village. Good luck all. Oh..if you get attacked, make crannies...at least 3, you can demolish them later, and if you have troops send them somewhere safe...rienforce an ally or something, eventually you'll be able to build up a good defense force. If people attack and get nothing they'll stop but if they see you as a farm they'll just keep farming. . You get the chance to mix it with all kinds of foreigners(mainly ex sov-blok types who still think that they are the dogs danglies) plus plot to take over the world. There is an endgame where anything goes, basically all out WAR which we are building up to.
