Guide your fledgling dominion from its beginnings as a single, small village to a massive sprawling empire. Order your peasants to construct new buildings. Grow your village into a town. Research innovations, and recruit the troops you need to defend yourself - or to go on the attack.
Surrounding your lands are other players seeking to do the same. You can befriend them, form alliances and clans, and work together to strengthen your hold on a hostile landscape. Or you can crush the fools for being in your way - by word or by sword, the realm is yours to conquer!
