Military Domination is the Goal in New 1000 AD

A thousand years has passed since 1000 AD but the rules of power are the same. No civilization can dominate the world without a stable economy, strong military, loyal allies or most importantly leaders with strategic guile and savvy diplomatic skills. You can win two ways in New 1000 AD. Attacking your opponents into submission with military might or exploring for land and building powerful defensive walls to defend your empire. There are 10 DIFFERENT MEDIEVAL CIVILIZATIONS to choose from, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Build farms to feed and grow your population and feed your armies, hire woodcutters to produce wood to construct buildings, forts, markets and weapons for your soldiers. Put your people to work mining for gold and iron to fund research to improve you empires technological superiority over your enemies or use weaponsmiths to build swords or catapults. Talk to other online players in our forums or in our players lounge or message online players in the game and work together to build a powerful alliance. Trading goods and using strategic military attacks with ALLIANCE members makes the lone wolf player a target and at a terrible disadvantage. Use the multiplayer aspect of the game to your advantage. Make Allies !!

Lead hordes of Vikings on raids to steal goods or send Japanese Samurai to attack Chinese peasants or repel them with Mongol swordsmen. Send Turk Horsemen on long journeys to attack Zulu warriors or explore past them behind powerful walls with the Franks towers and excellent explorers. The possibilities and different options are only limited to your time and imagination. Batter your enemies population and armies with thousands of catapults or steal army information or burn buildings and poison drinking water with well trained thieves. Since this is a turn based strategy game each turn your take has to be strategically and logically thought out. The most important resource in New 1000 AD are your turns. Use them wisely. No army or economy can dominate the known world of 1000 AD without superior technology. Each building,military unit and economic resource can improved with research. As you become more technologically advanced the research get more expensive and harder to attain so pick a plan and stick with it.

How to Prepare for War
