At the beginning You'll be told to build a new village for the people You saved from the Aztecs.
After clicking on the first scroll, You'll start a mini lesson. Your objective is to collect 200 units of food. To accomplish this, pick up the grain and put it into the storehouse. Next, create at least three farmers by placing them on the field.
The next objective is to store 800 units of wood and create 3 lumberjacks. First, rip the trees out of the ground (two) and place them in the storehouse. After that, pick up 3 peasants and place them near the trees to create some lumberjacks.
After completeing that activity, another scroll will appear - activate it. Your conscience will explain how the 'town hall' works - it is a very important building, so listen carefully.
The next scroll tells You to build the most wanted by the people building (the 'town hall' indicates the building). In this instance, it's the 'villa'. Place the foundations around the already existing road. You can help the peasants build by bringing them wood, or later on building it Yourself. After completing the first house the game will tell You to create at least three builders and to build more villas.
The next scroll will explain and allow You to use the tool bar. First close it and open it. Afterwards, listen to Your conscience which will explain the meaning of the tabs in it. Next, buy the 'temple' and build it in the city.
To complete the building, ore is necessary. Create some miners by placing them on the 'glittering rock' or on the mine. You can also carry the ore Yourself.
After building the temple, impressiveness highly increased, which contributed to taking over the first, nearby village. The people will march towards Your capital and when they reach the border (influence line - green line) admit them to Your capital by taking in their banner.
This way of conquering land is the counterpart of good, You can finish the whole game like this (by building beautiful and impressive cities).
After clicking the gold scroll that appeared, start learning about the army. First buy the 'armory' and build it. Next, start creating and army [pic. 2] and direct them onto the area pointed out by the game.
The next task that You have to complete is conquering the nearby village. Send the already created army onto the enemy's 'town hall'. After You have captured the town hall, the city is Yours and will appear on that terrain with the influence line, thanks to which you can construct buildings there.
At this moment, start to build up the conquered village. Of course don't forget about Your capital city.
A few new bronze scrolls have appeared on the map. One will show You how to place roads, the next one how the sun clock works and the last one the objectives from Your tool bar.
After clicking on the gold scroll with lessons about the creature, You'll finally be able to use Your creature. First, take him out. Then, tell him to eat some grain from the field [pic. 2].
After finishing the above tasks, tie him to a nearby rock by clicking on it two times while holding the leash.
When You finish that, Your creature will pick up a peasant and will want to eat it. By punishing him You'll forbid him doing that, but by petting him You'll allow him to do so. This is the first, but not the last step to educating his character.
Further actions will depend only from You and from the path You choose. If You choose to be evil, create a bigger army (about 50 units) and attack the remaining villages, watching out for Your opponents armies in that region. If You choose to be good, build up Your capital boosting its impressiveness and happiness (remember about the most wanted buildings, build a few temples).
