Terra Militaris Part 2 : What can i do?

For part 2 I was planning on guiding you trough the tutorials of the game.  But there is a reason they are called tutorials isn't there. With this game it's not necessary to go into further detail of this. However note that during the time you play the tutorial quests/missions you should keep building whenever you get the chance.

Note: After the tutorial is done you will own that village and all it's buildings.

During the game you can do multiple tasks together at the same time.
You can : (with a normal account)

  • Build/Upgrade 2 buildings simultaneously
  • Research Upgrades (note 1 per building)
  • Build Units (there's a build queue for every building)
  • Collect Items
 Other things that don't require resources/a build slot or a research slot are:

  • Battle enemy mobs in your region view
  • Battle enemy mobs in your world view
  • Wage a lair battle to receive items (swords,armor,potions for your hero)
  • Send out a merchant to trade goods with cities (note: only famous cities apply to sell goods)
  • Participate in an arena fight this however costs 1000 gold a time but nets the best possible xp rate to level up your hero. It's also the cheapest one in arena fights your troops aren't lost after they die.
  • Send out missioners to build temples or slander other peoples temples.

These are the possibilities of things you can do in the game explained in a few simple points. It might not seem like much but there's a whole lot more to it than they way I've just summed them up.
Terra militaris is a browser game you can spend time in and always experience something without having to wait a long time to complete building something or sending troops to attack and so on...

In part 3 also the last part of the terra militaris review I'll give an in depth personal experience of this gem of a browsergame.

Terra Militaris: part 1 Meeting the game

The first game i'm going to review is called "Terra Militaris" it's made by Gpotato.
It's a classic old age browser game or is it? I've found this browser game to be quite renewing.

In this part of the review i'll give a short description about what it's all about.
Like in all games we get to choose a nation/faction. We can choose between roman,chinese,persian or egyptian.
All nations have different advantages over each other one isn't made stronger than the other.

The differences with other web browser games already starts here : As a player you have to work with your fellow [insert nation here] to defend, conquer and rule your country.
Note: It's impossible to attack someone from your own nation.

Here we have the log in screen :
Terra Militaris log in screen
Again we can see the 4 available nations, when we log in the first time we get this screen:

Nation Selection Screen

Here we can choose our nation as i've said before all nations have their advantages. I will list them below.

For the Romans:
  • Lumber Production +20%
  • Average Unit Strength
  • Bonus Units Hp
  • Special Units: Cataphract / Gladiator
 For the Chinese:
  • Food Production +20%
  • Greater defensive abilities
  • Faster Building
  • Special Units: Chu-ko-nu / Mangudai
For the Persians:
  • Stone Production +20%
  • Units have higher strength
  • Merchant load bonus
  • Special Units: Mamluk / War elephant 
For the Egyptians:
  • Metal Production +20% 
  • Stronger Siege equipment
  • Faster research times
  • Special Units:  Anubis Guard / Anubis Chariot
You also might have noticed the text field where you can input castelan name and castle name.
The castelan name is going to be the name of your character/ruler/hero that leads the kingdom.
Castle name is referring to the name of your village/city/fortress.

After you click the create button it's time to start the game... at last.

I hope you enjoyed my review and i'll post part 2 First steps in the game as soon as possible!
