*****0****2)                  Introduction                             

        Empire Earth is a game that covers time periods from 500,000BC
to times past the present. Each time period, or epoch, has been
designed for historical accuracy (except the last one, Nano). The
campaign covers all epochs (including the made up age). This is a
detailed HAND-HELD walkthrough for each campaign, and does not provide
general strategies for skirmishes, multiplayer, ect. I will provide
strategies usable against the computer AI, but these will not work
against human players (well human players with any sense).

        This game needs a very good computer to play it and still have
fun. I have a 700MHz Celeron, 768MB RAM (256MB+512MB), and a VooDoo 3
3000. I would say this is a pretty good system but the game still runs
very laggy (about 10-15fps), even when only a few units are on screen.
I recommend you turn the game settings to best performance if you are
having problems (I did).

        The in game graphics are OK; they aren't the best I've seen.
Each unit is a low-poly model and this can be seen when the game zooms
in for cinematic sequences. The faces of the models are just two quads,
with a face texture on them. The terrain is also decent. Even with all
these low quality models and textures the game still won't run fast on
my system. But set everything else aside the game is fun, and thatís
all that matters.

screen will go to normal. About the video card I'm pretty sure thereís
no way around that.

**0000****5)                 Greek Campaign                            

5.1)-----------The Early Helladic Peoples: 10,000-2,000BC--------------

Difficulty (1-5): 1
Fun        (1-5): 2
Overview:         Steal a dock, sail across a river, and make a few

        You start off with an easy mission, invade a city with more
people and better technology, and take over their ships and sail to a
new land... OK maybe it's not so simple. When you start off get your
some of your citizens and start chopping the down the forest closest to
your town center. Take the others and kill a goat and take its food.
Now take 1 citizen and make a barracks then put the citizen back to
work. Start making rock throwers and clubmen. Upgrade them if you want.
Train guys until youíre out of both iron and gold if you want there is
some gold southwest of your town center but you don't need it. Now
start heading west, leave your citizens for now.

        When you reach the hostile city follow the coast and look for
the dock. Kill anybody who attacks you and one of those heroes can heal
so you shouldn't be hurting too bad. Start making transports, and when
you're ready to leave gather your citizens and shove off. Oh before you
leave make sure you have at least 500 wood.

        Sail west and if you get attacked at sea just ignore them
until you get to the coast. Land on the coast and continue west until
you come to a big plateau. Get your citizens to make a settlement,
barracks and a temple there. Wasn't that an easy game?

5.2)--------------Warriors From the Sea: 2,000-1,500BC-----------------

Difficulty (1-5): 4
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         Escape from an island, make an army and kill 2 town

        You start off on an island with a few citizens and some sword
guys. Your objective here is to get off the island as fast as possible.
First build a capitol and start chopping some wood. Then build a dock
and make 3 or 4 war rafts, and a few transports. Thereís gold to the
east if you need it, it's guarded by a few guys who are easy to kill. I
wouldn't recommend getting this gold, all it will do is lengthen your
stay on the island. If you stay on the island too long (way too long)
the Minoans will slaughter you with a huge army, you don't stand a
chance, don't think you do.

        When you set sail head north. There will probably be a whole
lot of offensive BATTLESHIP'S!!! What you do is when you run into a
battleship just attack it with one of your ships, and leave that ship
behind. Don't let any of your transports die. You don't stand a chance
against the battleships, don't try to win (you don't stand a chance
against much do you?) Anyway get to the island; it's not a very far
sail, BTW its north incase you didn't know.

        Once on the island you can get to the Argos plateau on your
map without running into any enemies. You'll be left alone here pretty
much except for a few stone throwers but those are easy. Your first
goal is to get the copper age. Get a bunch of food, and iron and get
into the copper age! Once you upgraded epochs you have unlimited food
(granaries) and good long range troops (simple bowmen). Build a lot of
macemen, and bowmen, and upgrade them too. If you want stone for some
reason it southwest of your plateau but you may have to fight off some
cavalry to get to it.

        Your mission is to destroy 2 town centers. 1 city is still in
stone age, while the other 2 have lots of horses. First you need to
kill the one to the west of where you are. For this you'll need simple
bowmen, macemen, and sampsons. Right now sampsons are your closest 
thing to a siege weapon you're gonna get. Go in first with your bowmen
and macemen and kill all the horsies. Then just head in with sampsons
and destroy the town center and other buildings. Feel free to take the
stone that they were using. When you take the stone you can build
hospitals to heal your wounded. You can also build a few towers to
guard whatís yours (or attack whatís not yours*grin*).

        Now that the first town is out of the way you can
go onto to the Messenians. They are southwest of the last town you
leveled, be careful there are still Achaian horsemen around, because
the have another village in the northwest corner. When you attack the
Messenians you'll notice they have towers, destroy these fast with your
sampsons, and guard your sampsons with your bowmen. After the first
tower is dead head in and kill another. After that it should be really
easy, all your bowmen can kill any of their troops with 2 or 3 hits.
Just use the sampsons on the town center and you won.

5.3)------------------The Trojan War: 1,300-1,100BC--------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 5
Overview:         Get army from some people, kill some guys, and get a
                  Trojan horse!

        First thing you do here is build a granary for food, then
take some citizens and go southeast to get some wood and stone. You
need lots of wood in this one so don't hold back, but don't neglect
stone. After you get your citizens situated put Agamemnon on a
transport and head to each of the 3 islands, don't worry nothing will
attack you, you only need Agamemnon. With each island you visit you'll
get more units, and more ships. By the time you're done you'll have 10
battleships, and 5 Odyssean transports.

        Now the game tells you to invade Troy, but that's not what
youíre gonna do, since you don't have a big enough army yet. What you
are gonna do is invade the city north of your city. There aren't many
towers so it'll be easy, I managed to do it without losing a single
guy. First send a citizen scout to find the passage to their city and
then unload your army out at the beginning of that passage. Kill
anything on your path. Once you get to the towers; kill them one at a
time with some sampsons. Once you get to the gate use your sampsons to
tear it down. Inside the city, destroy any troops there, and also
destroy the barracks, ect so they'll leave you alone. After blowing
everything up you'll have unguarded iron and gold at your disposal.
Also you'll get some civilization points. Just send over some citizens,
make 2 settlements, 1 next to gold, and 1 next to iron. Then select 5
citizens and populate one into a town center. Then just build a bunch
more citizens for your use.

        Now that you have practically unlimited resources of every
type start making an army like no other. If you havenít gotten the
population cap + 15% bonus yet I suggest you use the points from
destroying the city to get this. With your resources you can also
upgrade everything you have to its fullest. Build up lots and lots of
units, max out your population. I recommend a few prophets, a bunch of
bowmen and macemen, and about 5 or 6 sampsons. Don't forget you need
enough transports. And don't worry nothing will attack you so take your
time, even go AFK while you get money if you want, youíre totally safe.
While you are getting resources and building an army send those
battleships of yours and destroy the Trojan fleet, all over the east

        Think you're ready? Well, letís see. If your whole army can
fit on the Odyssean transports supplied to you, your army isn't big
enough. Also cram on board some citizens, get the ones who aren't
mining stone. Give them their own transport (put 10 citizens in it),
also keep this transport separate from the rest so you don't unload all
your citizens and then die. When youíre navigating the sea with your
battleships you'll come across a fleet of 5 battleships, kill them and
then stop here. This is where you will unload your troops. You must
have all the kings meet here first, so make sure their on the
transports too.

        When you land Agamemnon will spot the towers north of you,
and says the camp must be far from them, well you heard him... make
camp. Unload your citizens and make a wall to enclose your troops, make
a gate so you can get in and out, but the Trojans can't, and then line
then wall with towers. You should have upwards of 6000 stone, so don't
skimp on the towers! Also inside your camp you should build a few
barracks, archery ranges, stables, a hospital, and a temple. Now just
use hit and run tactics. Hit them a couple of times with an archer or
better yet, cast malaria with a prophet the run back to camp, let the
archers and towers kill them. After you get rid of the standing army,
send in your sampsons along with Agamemnon to heal. Use them to kill
the 2 towers then attack the gate. When you attack the gate you'll get
a message saying it's hopeless. Gather your kings back at the beach and
you'll be instructed to build a temple up north. Clear a path for your
citizens, and build a temple. Or even easier just put them on a
transport and sail them up there!

        After you build the temple watch the Trojan Horse pop up out
of nowhere with no cool special effects at all. Anyway load it up with
troops, and be sure to set their unit behavior to stand ground or else
they'll attack the temples and you were told not to do that. Be sure to
put the elite troops you got from the kings in there, a few archers,
and some sampsons. Don't bring a prophet thinking you can just use
malaria, because it's disabled once you get in. Just kill the king afar
with your archers, he won't do anything. Use your elite troops to kill
anything that goes after the archers. And use the sampsons to kill the
archery range, stable, and barracks. Once the king is dead kill his
guards, then move in with your sampsons. After the palace falls you

5.4)-----------------The Rise of Athens: 1,000-500BC-------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Defeat 3 villages, ally with them, and destroy an

        In this one you have to destroy 3 villages to secure your
safety on the island. The first one you will attack is Aphidna (in the
middle). After you kill them you will have stone, gold, and iron and a
base right between the other 2 cities. First thing you do is make a
granary for food, and make as many citizens as you can. Take about 5
citizens and make them get food then make the rest get wood. Now use
all your resources to make an army, make it good, this army will need
to kill an entire city. Make a few bowmen, macemen, horsemen. Don't
worry about sampsons, you won't be destroying any buildings. When you
used all your resources get your army and the 5 noblemen and Theseus.
Take them to the middle village and destroy the army. Use the priest
supplied to convert some guys. Bring Theseus and 2 noblemen to the town
center (be sure not to blow it up). Now they ally with you. Now take
some of your citizens and bring them up to the stone, iron, and gold.
Build a settlement right in the middle. Once you get a settlement make
all your citizens get stone. Mine until you have 500 stone, then make a
Temple of Zeus. Now cut your citizens in half and make half mine gold
and half get iron.

        Now build up a bigger army and attack Pallene, their even
smaller than Aphidna so it will be easy. After the army is dead bring
Theseus and 2 noblemen to the town center to get them to ally with you.
Now go to the last city, Eleusis, and tear down their gate with your
sampsons. Just run inside and kill the army, if you don't think you can
do it on your own use a flare; your 2 allies will come running in.
After you defeat them you get some money. Start making some bowmen back
in your city, and gather up your citizens to the left gate. Take your
army and put it up at Pallene. Now you can bring Theseus to the temple
and the gods take him up. After that Sparta and Thebes attack you. Just
lock all of your gates, kill them from the inside with your bowmen, and
repair with citizens. Also kill the army that comes from Pallene with
the army you sent up there, because all 3 of your allies abandon their
cities to help yours. Just keep your gates locked and repaired and you
got it.

5.5)---------------The Peloponnesian Wars: 427-404BC-------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 2
Fun        (1-5): 2
Overview:         Get trapped in a city. Sail around on the sea in slow
                  boats back and forth a lot. Die of plague. Make an
                  army and kill a small, spread out army.

        When this scenario starts gather up all your units that are
outside the city walls, and bring them in. And make your citizens start
chopping wood. Sparta will attack you and you don't stand a chance,
yet. Pericles has an idea, so bring him up the Parthenon, and he will
tell the city they need to stockpile 10,000 food. You can't do it alone
(well you probably could it would just take way too long). The lack of
food will cause a plague that will hurt your citizens and military
units. When it says "WERE UNDER ATTACK" go and find the sick unit and
bring him to the hospital to be healed; careful... he can spread it to
others. Anyway go to your capital and get 3 diplomats, then go to your
docks and build a whole bunch of battleships and frigates, don't worry
about transports, they will be provided. Once you have a good fleet go
and clear the way to the 2 spots on your map, and bring your diplomats
to the docks, and they will turn into a diplomatic transport. Now bring
the ships to the docks. Somewhere along the way a new spot on your map
will come up, send a diplomat there too. After you sent your diplomats
out you'll have 6 grain shipments, gold, and iron mine. Clear the way
for your shipments to come back (Sparta put more ships out so you need
to kill those too). Once you get the shipments you'll have over 15,000

        Start making citizens at your base that you got southeast,
also build a barracks and a stable and make a small army (20-30 units),
Sparta will attack this town, and you must defend. After you have a
good bit of gold start making an army over at Athens. Make a good
variety of troops, I made some elephant archers, phalanxes, long bows,
and war elephants. But, after seeing my phalanxes and long bows totally
annihilated and seeing my 10 elephants take on the whole army I
recommend building a balanced number of war elephants, and elephant
archers. Be sure to go all out on upgrades too, you have the resources.
And build a Temple of Zeus to heal your units at all times. Don't
bother with a Pharos Lighthouse, because its range is limited and it
will only uncover the sea, which you don't really need. When you make
your army, unlock your gate and head southwest. You'll run in to them.
Keep heading southwest until all of them are dead, thatís it, youíre

5.6)-------------------Young Alexander: 336Ė334BC----------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         Defeat 3 armies, develop combat skills.

        When this starts, wait around for a few seconds until
Alexander arrives. Listen to some talking and then go west up onto the
hill. Watch the fight, Aristotle says some things but on my computer
they only popped up for a split second. Anyway, after the battle is
over start heading west toward the spot on your map. Once you get there
follow the horse back to town and watch Alexander's father die. Kill
the 3 guys who killed him, you don't even have to kill them, just get
close and a bunch of phalanxes will run out of the city and do it for
you. After thatís done with go to the town center. When you get to the
town center Alexander will disappear. Just select your town center and
build an Alexander the Great (seriously). It takes some gold and a lot
of time so while thatís going on take Aristotle and put him on the
transport. Steer between the 2 hurricanes, and unload at the island.
You'll learn some spells, which actually gives Aristotle a use. Hop
back on the transport and go back. By the time you get there your
Alexander the Great will probably be done building. Be sure to make
your citizens get wood and food, you should make a couple more, the
ones supplied aren't enough.

        When you get everything situated, make some more phalanxes,
companion cavalries and cavalry archers. When you have your army head
south to the spot on your map. When you make the cavalry Aristotle will
give you a strategy. You can use his complicated strategy, or my simple

-=His strategy=-
         Send in the cavalry, zip past the front and
attack from behind. Grouping will help.  Take your companion cavalry
along with Alexander send them to back and take care of the siege
weapons. Keep the phalanxes in front of your archers, and take out the
melee units with your archers. I would recommend saving before this, it
may take a few tries.

-=My strategy=-
         Stop your army a little past the yellow
flags. Take Aristotle and walk him forward slowly. When you see the
army, cast malaria and run. When the guys reach your army they'll have
barely any HP left, kill them no problem. After their entire front line
is DEMOLISHED all they have left is a couple of archers and stone
throwers, take these out with phalanxes/archers/cavalry. Just be sure
to send Aristotle out of the way, because thatís the first person
they'll attack.

        Either way you do it, after you beat them you'll get some
money... I think you know what to do with it... huh? You don't know???
Rebuild your army, and add to it, also upgrade _a_little_. Next keep
going south until you run into Athensís army, it'll be even easier than
the last battle because now you have an even bigger army to work with.
If youíre using my strategy stop your army right where the road youíre
on turns southwest. As soon as you finish fighting this battle you have
must defend against the Spartan army.  	You have two choices of where
to fight this battle, on a road when they land on the island, or behind
your walls. Each has its advantages, choose where you want to fight it.
If you go for behind your walls, gather all your troops and citizens
and lock the gates. Whenever a gate becomes damaged, repair with
citizens, also be sure to check the walls, as they will be attacked
too. If one of your walls breaks take all your military units there,
and kill the Sparta as they bottleneck through your wall, and surround
your palace with citizens to repair. But, the time they get into the
city your archers will have totally injured their entire army, so they
should go down quick. If you choose to fight on the road, go to the
spot on your map with a yellow flag, mobilize and use the strategy you
used for all the other battles.

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Defeat the Persian army, and storm a city.

        When you gain control of your units after the opening scene,
go to the flags by the sea. Take your army and stop in middle of the
water, your front line should be on just on the opposite coast. Take
Philotus and make him ride ahead until he finds the army. Advance until
the army starts chasing him, then go into the back of your army. The
enemies who followed you will only be interested in kill Philotus, and
won't even attack your other troops! Just keep doing this over and over
until the army runs away.

        Now go to Issus, it the southeast town on your map.
Immediately south of Issus thereís a river, on the other side is some
more of the Persian army, use the same tactic as last time to kill
them. You must kill every last one this time, Alexander will tell you
when their all dead. Now keep heading south toward Tyre, until you come
to the army. You gain control of some phalanxes, and catapults. Take
Meleager and send him up to Anticoch. Now that you have some citizens
start getting wood and gold. If you want you can build a Pharos
Lighthouse, it helps. You should build it on the coast, right above
where you got your army. Build it far enough from shore so that
catapult ships can't get to it. After that you'll know where all the
ships on the sea are. Build 2 or 3 prophets, and 2 or 3 catapult ships.
Youíre going to attack from land, with support from sea.

        The city is blocked with a wall, that has no gates, and then
a wall with a gate. This is good for you, the enemy gets trapped in
this chamber where you can take them out easy, use catapults/archers.
While you are killing those destroy the gate on the other side, and the
tower next to it. Now take your prophets and use hurricane on some
ships, clear a path for your catapult ships. Move the catapult ships
next to the land bridge, and attack the towers. After guys stop coming
out of the city, blow up the wall and move in. Use your catapults to
destroy the capitol, you phalanxes to guard them, and Alexander to
heal. It's not that hard, you should be able to do it. One thing you
should do is set all your generals to a team. Every now and then select
the team to check on their HP, if any of them dies you lose.

Fun        (1-5): 5
Overview:         Defeat some villages, seize Babylonia, kill Persia,
                  and weep.

        The last of the Greek campaign and it's a good one. When you
start spend your money and make some more guys. Even out with cavalry,
and make more phalanxes. Now start traveling east until you run into a
small village. You are presented with a question, destroy the village
and take the loot, or make a town center and get your own village,
which do you choose? Well both of course! Raze the whole village, every
building and get the gold and iron. Then take your citizens and make a
settlement next to the wood. Also make a barracks, archery range,
stable and siege factory. Start shopping wood now. Spend the rest of
your money on making more units (no catapults yet), and upgrading.
Don't worry about any defense; youíre the only aggressor in this one.

        Keep heading east until youíre almost in Babylonia. Use the
lure tactic on this one. Make a hero lure them to your army, and move
the hero to the back, watch enemies die. Go into the city with
Alexander and take all the loot. Now go west back to the village you
just wiped out and then north. Kill the hill tribe, and take their

        Now east from here is the Persian army, go there. You need to
wipe out half of them. They have elephant archers, and powerful
cavalry. You should use the luring tactic again here, be careful though
that narrow passage can easily get clogged, and that deadly. If you are
having trouble use some citizens to make a tower or two, but you
shouldn't need to do this. After this army is beaten make some
catapults at your siege factory. If you population is maxed out then
send some units east toward the tomb, they'll die. Anyway, max out your
population and start heading east from where you fought the last battle
(east NOT south  east!!) When you get to the gates, destroy the 2 tower
with your catapults, and then the gate. If you want you can put a unit
at the gate and some elephant archers will come out, you can kill those
with your army, get some elephants out of the way. When the gates come
down you can just storm in, no tactics needed you should be fine.

        Advance into the valley; destroy the tower with your
catapults and kill the standing army outside the gates. When you get
the message after you kill everyone, bring Alexander, Philotus,
Craterus, and 3 or 4 phalanxes or cavalry. When you get to the tomb a
few assassins will try to kill you but they are easily defeated. Now
watch a pretty good ending. Good job, you beat the Greek campaign!

6.1)---------------The Return of Young William: 1040-------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 2
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         Kill some enemies, kill some bandits, get a couple of
                  catapults, and siege a castle...

        Not a very hard scenario to do. When you first start out
youíll have some money. Select a unit and you can upgrade their stuff.
I recommend upgrading archers speed with your money because their
pretty slow. Donít spend too much though you'll need it a little later.

        Now that your done walk east on the path a little way until
some archers attack you. Just select all your guys and right click the
archers until they die. Now look on your mini-map and youíll see a blue
spot south of where you are, go there. Once here youíll get some
knights and pikemen added to your army.

        Next another village comes up on your map, start going there.
On your way you'll find a village being attacked by bandits, you
guessed it... kill the bandits! After that you'll get some bonuses, put
them where ever you like. Continue your way up north once there you'll
get some more troops. Youíre now ready to cross the bridge to Falaise.

        Start going southeast towards the blue spot on your map, and
cross the bridge. When you get to the town send some guys east, they'll
run into a few enemies, kill them all. You'll find a town that gives
you some stone. Now send a guy southeast to find an engineer who will
sell siege weapons 500 stone a piece, buy 3 trebuchets. Now go north to
the castle and kill it. The trebuchets have slightly longer range than
the towers. Just send in some trebuchets to kill the towers. After you
fell some towers troops come running at you, kill them with your
troops, be sure not to walk into range of a tower and die! Rinse and
repeat; send citizens in as scouts if you are unsure. After you destroy
the keep watch it sink into the ground...

6.2)----------------William, Duke of Normandy: 1047--------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         A lose cannon jester who doesn't play by the rules...
                  Get an army, kill another army...

        You start off as a jester named Gollet who needs to warn
William of a plot against him. Start walking to the blue spot on your
map and you'll be attacked by two swordsmen and an archer... guess what
you kill them... thatís a real tough jester. Continue walking and
you'll be distracted by a noise north, go there and look, itís a wolf
you kill it too (wow). You also find a chest with bandages and a new
sword. You find two more rebels on your way there and kill them with no
problem. Stop off at a farm and get new clothes before going into town,
and apparently the clothes change his voice too (shrug).

        Once there William heals Gollet and William gets a horse. Now
leave the city from the east exit or you'll die. On your way there just
youíll find some other rebels, use Gollet as bait and kill them with
William. Keep going down the path until you find a church, William goes
in and prays, and when he comes out a group of riders is coming. Leave
the church and hide in the bushes directly across (thereís a big red
flag there).

        Keep following the trail and you'll come across a village and
pick up 3 knights. Next on your journey is an "ambush" (2 archers) but
their on a cliff so just ride by them and then stop, William will heal
everyone. Now right here set William and Gollet (if he's alive) to team
1, and the 3 knights to team 2. Now when the cinematic pops up be sure
not to click anything until itís done or you'll be killed by them. When
itís over you'll see the knights not to far from you, send in team 2
(the 3 knights) and then team 1 (William & Gollet) around the battle.

        After the escape you'll find yourself in a city, you get some
more troops. Go to the town northwest of your location and pick up some
more troops, after defeating the champion (pretty easy). You'll also
find some on the road. Also go to the town east (you have to go south
past the river to get there). Once you have that go meet Henrys army
(itís on the map). Now just kill the army and youíre done with this
scenario. (Notice how Henry sat in the back row and didn't fight at
all). With the army that you've built up by now it should be pretty

6.3)-----------------The Battle of Hastings: 1066----------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         Build an army, sail over sea, kill an army, and then
                  kill a king.

        This is the first scenario where you actually get to build a
lot of stuff. First press TAB to select your idle citizens, send them
northeast and southwest to get food, gold, iron and wood (stone isnít
important). Also build more citizens. Now build an army, I recommend
lots of archers and knights but itís really your preference. Don't
forget to upgrade your guys a lot (archers with full upgrades can do
some real damage). Donít go for too much diversity so you can just
upgrade the units you have. As soon as you get some units put them at
each of the spots where your gathering resources, as bandits will
invade from time to time. Once you max out your population William will
be able to go to the dock and get transports, donít do this until you
are ready, thereís no turning back.

        Start ignoring iron and food and concentrate on wood and gold
now. Build enough transports for your whole army (I had 6) and with the
left over population build battleships. Upgrade the battleships and
shove off! Go to the middle spot on you map and land, be careful
frigates will attack you be sure to kill them before you lose a
transport. When you land there will be 2 archers on a cliff, kill those
before passing or your troops will get hung up and disorganized (this
actually happened to me and I lost). After they are dead pass through
and kill the army. If William dies during the fight he'll only lose his
horse, run up to the hill or you will lose the battle.

        Now Godwinson fled to a nearby hill, go kill him and his
troops, Leave William back if he fell off his horse to be safe. After
this battle heal (obviously) and march forward. If you lost your horse
go northwest from the first town you find to get him a horse first.

6.4)------------The Hundred Years' War Begins: 1340-1346---------------

Difficulty (1-5): 4
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         Sink a few ships, get some stone, build an army, and
                  then storm a castle.

        Almost 300 years since your last battle, William's dead so
forget about him... Anyway, start off and build 3 battleships and
upgrade range and attack once. Assign all but the demolition ship to
team 1; make the demolition ship team 2. Take team 1 and follow the
south coast and make team 2 follow the north coast. When team 1 is
attacked make team 2 go around the battle and blow up the flagship,
then you can kill the rest of the ships with team 1.

        After this you'll be transferred to land. You'll have some
units and a Black Prince with the exact same powers William had. Head
south and kill any opposition. Instead of taking the front door to
Caeon make your own in the southeast corner, to avoid the towers.
You'll be able to kill the 4 building easily. Once youíre done with
that you get 5 citizens, and any left over building are yours (thatís
why you keep the towers alive). Build a settlement in the middle of all
the rocks, and mine 150 stone.

        Now after that an architect comes out of nowhere and upgrades
your settlement into a town center. He just sits there the rest of the
game, so just ignore him. Get more citizens and start getting
resources. First go east and get that wood! Then go north and find the
iron and gold, you should have enough wood by now to make a settlement
there too. Since you already have a lot of iron focus on gold. Build a
dock and a bunch of fishing ships and make them all get fish (thereís a
bunch of fish just look around). If you run out of fish just build a
granary and that will produce farms for you to get food from too,
thereís also some food in the south-central area. If you wanna see
something cool go all the way northwest thereís a small localized
hurricane on the coast thereís also some others north-north-east of
your city... ANYWAYS... Build an army, upgrade them... same same. Be
sure to make a tower or two to block attacks, and station some units
east to guard your wood choppers.

        When you feel you're strong enough move east. You'll run into
a hostile French city, kill them all. Head over the shallow land bridge
and do some more killing. Destroy two towers and some farms, cross a
bridge. Now getting in can prove quite tricky, they have a seemingly
endless supply of archers, knights, and ballistae (plural for
ballista!). Destroy the towers with your siege weapons, and hopefully
break through the defense and make it into the town with a good sized
army. Thereís also a small strip of land just a LITTLE east from the
bridge (you can probably see if from the bridge). Drop off trebuchets
here, and you can snipe off a bunch of building with no problem. The
wall will protect you; you can also send Black Prince to heal if
needed. Also watch out for priests they can convert your units and use
them against you. And one more thing during the game some other country
(France I think) will keep attacking you and you can't seem to destroy
them. I just built a huge wall and they stopped at the wall and did
nothing at all (no rhyme intended). Good luck on this one this is the
first one that might hold you up.

6.5)--------------------The Black Prince: 1356-------------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         Steal a bunch of treasure, get an instant army, then
                  kill another army, and storm the castle.

        Just start off heading southeast and almost instantly along
your journey you'll come across some French, kill them and plunder
their treasure. You won't be getting anymore units for a while so
ration the ones you have. Oh and be sure to take the chest with you (it
can roll around). Keep going east until you come across a small
village, kill all the troops and take down the tower (be sure to make
the Black Prince heal whoever the tower attacks!!!) Destroy the rest of
the village if you want, although I donít think itís required. If you
keep going east you'll hit a dead end, so now go west. You'll come
across a small monastery and they attack you, their pretty easy. Oh I
should also mention they will make volcanoes on you so as soon as you
get there, kill everything in sight quick. 3 down 1 to go. Now head
back to where it was a dead end before, oh look wasn't that easy the
trees are felled!... Right... just take the path over the water. Run
through the valley and donít worry about the rocks, just keep moving.
You come across a village; same old kill the troops take the loot. Now
you hafta get back to where you started. The rocks in the valley have
fallen so forget about that. Instead go around north then west, cross a
big bridge. You'll come across a deserted village but itís not that
simple... AMBUSH (3 guys attack you)... After that you come across
another village being attacked by bandits (French) kill them and WOW
WASN'T THAT CONVIENT!?... 2 transports at your disposal. 3 rivers to
choose from, you could try all 3 or just take the one that leads south.
Go back to where you started and youíre done.... NOT!

        Now you gotta meet reinforcements north, so hop back on your
transports and go north, wow that was a quick trip... Instant Army just
add water. Now go south and loop up north. Get up top the hill and be
sure to guard both entrances to the hill. Try to save at least one
trebuchet so you can get in the castle easier later on (I didn't have
any trebuchets left so I'm writing this while my swordsmen tear down
the wall... I'm gonna go find something to eat). I timed it, 11 minutes
to tear down the wall + 4 minutes for the castle, SO BE SURE TO SAVE A
TREBUCHET! Anyway all ya gotta do is tear down a wall, get in ignore
the towers and kill the castle.

6.6)----------------We Band of Brothers: 1414-1415---------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 2
Overview:         Kind of annoying, you have to visit a whole bunch of
                  temples, while avoiding priests who can convert you.
                  Then storm a castle, and beat an army who outnumbers
                  you by a whole lot.

        This scenario starts out with King Henry V running to Oxford.
When you get there make some citizens and go to the gold and food on
your map... build settlements, get resources. Make an army I recommend
cataphracts and cavalry archers for this one, because their fast. If
you make trebuchets or archers upgrade their range and attack to max,
this is VERY important for winning at the end of this scenario. Back to
the present time... there are priests all over the place watch out for
them; they'll convert your citizens. After you get a decent army
(doesn't need to be huge) and start searching for temples. I'm not
gonna give you directions to each temple, there all over the place. If
you want to know there are 7 temples, 4 of which are hostile. After
your done bring King Henry V back to London.

        After A LOT of talking you'll be able to do stuff again. Max
out your population and gather ALL your units and bring them to
Portsmouth (south of Oxford). When you land select all your citizens
and press 'L'. This will make them all explore for you. After they
explore build a stable, archery range, barracks, and siege workshop to
make more units. Then make them all get resources. While their doing
that take your army and go to the northeast part of the island and try
to blow down the wall so you can get in and out easily. First kill the
towers, and the archery ranges. You shouldn't go inside until ballistae
start coming. As soon as a ballista attacks you move inside with all
units and destroy the siege workshop ASAP. Then stable, barracks,
ect... Just prioritize and you'll be fine. Also use the earl to heal.

        Now bring Henry and the Earl (your only 2 units) to the fords
outside Nesle (keep going east from the city you just destroyed). Well
after all that you get your units back. Your citizens stopped working
so put them all back to work. Remember the barracks ect you made
earlier? Rebuild your army to max population you should have plenty of
resources by now. OK... follow this strategy I made; I used it and only
lost 1 trebuchet as a casualty. Have your archers, and trebuchets range
and attack maxed out. When you cross the river there are two hills, one
on each side. Each hill has 2 cannons that will attack you, kill them
with your trebuchet(s). Make sure the Earl is right next to the
trebuchet to heal it. After the cannons are dead move forward with the
trebuchet, because it has good sight range, until you find some troops,
attack them and then run to the back row. The units you attacked will
come running for the trebuchet and won't attack ANYTHING else. Just
kill them all before they reach it. Repeat this until all the troops
are dead. Also your archers can substitute as trebuchets, except for
killing cannons. And a final note... the enemy archers are instructed
to hold ground so as long as you stay out of their range they wonít do

6.7)--------------The War Against Napoleon: 1806-1814------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 4
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Make an army, free some cities, and defeat Napoleons

        400 years have passed and technology has advanced a lot while
you were gone. It is no long the middle ages epoch, now itís the
industrial epoch. No more swords, your troops use guns now, you also
have mobile cannons. Use your new technology wisely. Now to start the
scenario, go southeast and gain control of your army. Don't upgrade
anything yet. Head in to your transports and let your frigates lead the
way. After you reach Lisbon go toward the docks with your frigates
before unloading, and kill that cannon they have from afar, also weaken
the troops. Then unload and kill the rest of them. Stay put at the edge
of town with your frigates on the coast. Some more troops will come
from the west, kill them since you have frigate backup it shouldn't be
that hard.

        Go north east and kill most of the infantry here. Junot will
surrender, MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS if you don't the game won't tell you
otherwise and will keep giving you instructions, and you won't be able
to build an army!!! OK... now you have a new mission: defeat enemies at
Talavera. The city you were just in becomes yours, start getting
resources. After you get some resources make some bombardments and
serpentines from your siege factory. Send them south to kill the two
towers at Badajoz. Continue in to the town and kill two more. Before
you kill the last tower send a decent army just above the land bridge.
When you kill the last tower Spanish rebels will storm out of the city
and attack the French, you back them up.

        Now that the first defense army outside Talavera is gone you
can move in. When that city is liberated go onto Salamanca. Go left
into the dirt and lure the enemies to where youíre other infantry are.
After you kill that cluster thereís another one a little ways away from
that. Kill them too. Rebuild your army if needed, and gather all your
citizens. Also use any remaining money to upgrade or max out your
population. Now head east to the mountains be careful, there are 4
snipers up high, kill them with Wellesly. When the snipers are dead
take your citizens and build lots of towers on the highest land you can
find and mobilize your troops in the middle. Then just wait for the
French to attack. If they don't attack just lure them in with a cannon
or something. On the mountains you'll have a height advantage and
you'll have towers too. Just keep shooting and when most of the enemies
are dead the rest will run away. ! During this battle when I was
playing Wellesly actually died, and I got the message saying that all
hope is lost ect ect, but then it cut to the scene of the French
running away...

6.8)----------------The Battle of Waterloo: 1815-----------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Just slaughter Napoleons army, thatís the jist of it.

        You start off this one as a messenger for Wellesly. Once you
gain control, start heading southeast. Along the forest path there will
be some snipers, kill them if you want or just ride by, it won't
matter. Just follow the path to the first place on the map and you'll
find Blucher's army. He sends a messenger back to Wellesly but he never
got there. Wellesly decides to mobilize his army and doesn't know
whether or not Blucher will help.

        Now once you get your citizens don't worry about resources,
you have all you need. Head to Belgium and build a base a little south
of them, on the big hill. This should also be southeast of Brussels.
Make 2 barracks, 2 stables, and 1 siege factory. Now make a settlement
next to the stone and get stone for awhile. I should also mention that
you need to be VERY quick about everything. As soon as you finish
making the stables start training dragoons. As soon as the barracks
finish start training British Infantry. And when the siege factory
finishes start making serpentines and bombardments. When you have a
decent army send them south to Quatre Bras, and get ready for an
attack. If you get the message that the French are going to attack
Quatre Bras, and you're not their yet, start moving! When the French
start coming toward you take care of their cannons with your
bombardments and serpentines. Also at the same time you need to tell
your citizens (engineers) to make a hospital at the edge of the hill.
Then make as many towers as you can on the hill and at the bottom. Make
the towers as if an attack were coming from Quatre Bras, and upgrade
the towers range.

        When the battle at Quatre Bras is done send your remaining
troops up to the hospital and heal them all. Use any remaining money to
make more guys. Also upgrade your units, don't max upgrades though, you
want to balance quality and quantity. When you use up all your money
mobilize behind your towers. Sometime along the way the Prussian army
will arrive to support you. When they come thatís your queue to get
ready. After less than a minute you will be under attack. You should be
able to totally waste the French easily, since you have the height
advantage, towers, a hospital healing your guys, AND back up from
Prussia. Congratulations, you completed the English Campaign!

7.1)------------------Cavalry of the Sky: Summer 1915------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 2
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         First save a damsel in distress, chop down a tree,
                  take some pictures, and blow stuff up

        This scenario starts with some cool cinematics up in the sky.
But anyway, when you gain control start heading east (yes east). You'll
come a across a farm, and a guy that says the Russians took his wife.
Just keep heading east then north a bit and you'll find a barracks. Two
guys come out, you can kill them easy. The wife runs back to the farm,
follow her. After the talking is over you'll be able to control the 3
brothers, go west and chop down the trees.

        Now that the path is cleared take Manfred and Holck west past
the trees. You'll come across a small base, just get right up on the
barracks and Holck takes a picture. Follow the path west and take some
more pictures of another base on the path. Keep following the path and
you'll come across another base, take pictures of that one too. When
you find this one the hospital becomes yours, heal if needed. Now from
this base go north and take pictures of that one too. If you get
attacked don't worry, just run away.

Diego points out:
I wanted to tell you that in the German Campaign scenario " Cavalary of
the Sky" if you went north from the first base you photograph you find
another base. In one of the buildings is a map of all the other bases
(very useful). And then if you go west you come across another base and
it gives you AMMO (extremely useful against the doughboys).

        When you get the 4 pictures you'll get control of the army
that's advancing from the west. Train 3 or 4 medics, 3 artillery
cannons, and about 5 cavalry anythings. Upgrade range on your troops,
and attack if you feel like it. Also you should set all unit behavior
to stand ground. Now move forward slowly killing anything that gets in
your way and healing with a medic. When the pillbox starts attacking
you pull back all but one infantry, use your medics to heal him as he's
being shot. You need him as a spotter for your artillery, just use the
cannons on the pillbox, it'll die really quick. Now comes for killing
their artillery. Advance until you get hit by the artillery, then fall
back a bit and heal. Take one of your cavalries and send it right next
to the enemy artillery and then shoot it with your cannons. This will
take a few tries. Now advance forward some more, kill another cannon,
then just push with all your soldiers.

Tip from: Bob Idiot
Instead of making a large army, just destroy the machine gun hut and have
your men kill as much as possible without any healing or anything. After
everyone is dead (your side) just send the 2 guys through and you should
just narrowly make it. 

        When the path is cleared take Manfred and Holck and go to the
camp. Find the headquarters tent, and go there. Scenario beaten!

7.2)----------------Supply and Demand: Winter 1915-1916----------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 1
Overview:         I hate this scenario. Just let ships come in.

         This one is VERY annoying. Make a bunch of citizens anywhere
but the west town, and have them mine gold and iron. Also make a
settlement next to the wood that's east of the western most town. Start
getting wood, gold, and iron. Make a naval yard in the middle of your
island on the north coast, and on the far west coast. Supplies will
start coming in. Make a bunch of submarines, and destroy any ships on
the sea. Once you have about 10 supplies make it in, this scenario gets
very irritating. They start send insane amounts of bombers and stuff to
attack your supplies. You should make a cruiser or something, and use
him to decoy the planes fire, and let supply ship go through. Another
thing that's annoying about this one is its repetitiveness, the same
thing over and over. Somewhere along the line it'll tell you to bring a
u-boat to the British dock, don't worry about doing this since you'd
have to make a huge fleet to destroy all the frigates (they can hit
u-boats) and you'd still have to worry about airplanes. You can make an
airstrip or two to combat the enemy, but it's futile. The supply ships
are unlimited, so this one might go on for a while.

7.3)-------------------The Red Baron: Spring 1916----------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 4
Fun        (1-5): 2
Overview:         This is a 4-5 hour scenario, be ready. Blow up stuff
                  while getting destroyed with airplanes that you have
                  no defense against.

        When you start off make a bunch of citizens, and settlement
next to all the money. Start getting resources. Now go to your
aerodrome and make lots of fighters and bombers. Send the fighters to
the base south of you, and destroy all their fighters. Right after the
fighters leave your base, send your balloon to follow. Send it right
over their base, and select a building inside, everything will die. Now
comes the hard part. Build lots of howitzer cannons, a few artillery,
and a German officer (make this with your capitol). Also make some
partisans, but leave those at base to destroy any enemy aircraft. As
soon as anything finishes building, send it to the back of your base or
airplanes will kill them. Once you have a big army, send them west and
then south. Destroy the base there. You'll also find some aerodromes
northwest, kill those with your artillery, since their on a hill and
you can't reach them with anything else. Now continue heading south,
and ignore any enemy airplanes, they don't do much damage and you can
just heal with the officer. If too many planes attack you though, send
in your air fighters. Be sure to watch out for enemy artillery. Go past
the yellow town, and look 3 aerodromes, kill them all. Now attack the
last enemy fort from the east. Be careful, at this point their
desperate they attacked me with insane amounts of artillery. Use the
howitzers to kill towers and stuff before you enter their range. One
thing you should watch for is tanks... artillery and other tanks are
the best for killing these. Also if you still need more help bring a
good amount of citizens with you and build towers if tanks attack you.
After you destroy the last base you'll have to kill all the airplanes.
If you don't have any partisans make some now. Just stay put at your
base and kill planes, very easy.

7.4)-------------------------The Somme: 1918---------------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 4
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         Destroy 3 towns, and build some barracks.

        When you start in this one you have 15,000 of each resource, so
don't start getting money! Instead make an extra airport next to the
one you already have. Scatter your base with AA guns. Start making an
army like none other. Fully upgrade everything. On one airport make
fighters, and the other bombers. Set the fighter rally point to the
center of the edge of your base, they'll destroy any one who finds your
base (be sure to tell them to if they don't!) Go for a variety of units
this time, because money is no object. Oh yeah, if somebody finds your
base and lives to tell about it, you lose all your money. You'll also
lose all your money if you reach your pop-cap. Before you reach your
pop-cap, go south and build a dock or two, build a bunch of AA guns and
a few towers to guard it. Build 3 or 4 transports (don't worry its
quick trip, you can come back to pick up more.) When you reach your
pop-cap start chopping wood, and getting gold... also, you should have
a good bit of bombers, send them south, a little ways past your dock.
When they are taking off select two at a time, and put them into teams.
When you get to the coast there will be 4 AA guns spread out, bomb them
all. Now send your fighters in too, the coast is now yours, unload.

        Now move in south, with fighters and bombers for backup, you
should totally demolish this base easy. After you're done you should
have lost some troops, so you have some population to use, make lots of
citizens, I put 5 to each resource, and 8 to wood. Put 2 or 3 on a
transport and bring them south to the town, build lots of AA guns ASAP,
also make a hospital, and DON'T make a barracks on the big blue spot
yet! I suggest you stay put here for a while, until you get a lot of
money (I went and ate lunch). All they send is airplanes, so your AA
guns should kill them easily, you also have a hospital to heal if they
do get hit. Eventually Britain will get restless, but they only send a
couple of machine gunners at a time, but be sure to have a few tanks at
your base. When you're ready you should build two airports at your new
base, and transfer all your airplanes to there. Be sure to keep a unit
near each building, or you won't be able to use it!

        Now to attack Roye, it's in the southeast corner of the map,
it's pretty easy to beat. I managed to do it with only some tanks and 
howitzer cannons. Just head south, and stay as far left as possible.
Make a hole in the barbed wire and then go southeast. When you defeat
everything there send some citizens to make a few airports there, and
transfer all your airplanes from the other town here. Be sure to make
some AA guns too. Now put the same amount of bombers in each airport,
so you can send them all at once. Send them northwest of where you are,
to the enemy airports. You might want to scout first. Ignore everything
else and bomb the airports to death, I sent 15 bombers out of 3
airports and blew both up in one trip. Without air support they are
totally weak, you can finish them off with your airplanes if you want.
Now build a barracks on all 3 towns and you've won! Note: Try to build
all 3 barracks at once, because they like to attack after you build a

7.5)------------------Lightning Warfare: 1939-1940---------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Pretty fun, blow up some stuff, including the Eiffel

        This is a pretty short scenario, unlike the recent ones
you've played. This one is an hour and a half... at max. When you start
off make a big army, tanks, panzers, machine guns, lots of bombers, and
some fighters (airplanes!) Make a bunch of AA guns west, as if an
attack was coming from France, and north of France. Once you have a
good bit of bombers send them east to Poland, as soon the first one is
almost to the capitol, pause the game, unallie with Poland then
unpause. Tell all your bombers to attack it until its dead. Then the
hospital, and finally the army. Once their worn down a lot send in your
ground army to finish them off. Send in 5 citizens, build a settlement,
and populate it into a town center. You'll collect a bunch of money. Be
sure to kill all the buildings (their scattered around). Make another
settlement next to the iron and gold and start getting both. Now build
an Olympic Stadium (Coliseum). Also make more bombers.

        At this point you should have about 15 bombers. Make a
balloon and scout out France. Find their 2 main airports. If you have
13 bombers you can demolish one airport in a single round, then the
second one the within two more rounds. Next continue west with your
bombers, and find more airports, kill these too. Without air support
French is nothing, and you should have taken them by enough surprise so
they won't even hurt your bombers. Also attack from ground, just attack
around the Maginot Line (the big wall... you'll see it). When you have
France hurt badly, send 5 citizens around the line, and make a town

        Now comes Denmark, they have ships that can attack you from
sea, but their not too much of a challenge. Just lead in with bombers
like always to scout out the terrain. Heading, kill the towers with
your artillery, kill tanks with your tanks, airplanes with panzers.
When you beat them build a settlement, and populate it. Watch a quick
cinematic of Buckingham palace... surrounded by airports and AA guns??

        For some reason people are still emailing me with problems on this
scenario. Remember what Lightning Warfare is, quick warfare. Get in and
out quick, send in air strikes and bomb stuff. Storm in with tanks and
kills people. BE VERY SURE TO GET MONEY. These are the only tips I can
offer you, I don't want any more emails on this mission, please. Just try
try again.

Alternate strategy from: Mr. Dhongde
        There's is a very interesting though perhaps, unfair way of
winning this game. All you have to do during the first 10-15 mins is to
make transports and citizens, send them to Poland, France and
Denmark/Norway and make a town center or a capitol. The computer's not
going to attack you as your diplomacy's neutral. There's enough space near
the existing capitols (i.e. inside the coloured squares), to build your
own town center. As the winter of 1941 starts, attack Poland, finish it
off quickly and use the resources obtained to make a bigger army. Do not
declare war on France and Denmark as yet.

        Make walls around the capitol in Denmark and France for added
protection. Be sure to have AA's protecting your Reichstag from British
fliers. Once you have about 5-6 tanks, 6 cannons and a hospital near each
of the enemy's capitols, attack. (start around 'summer of 42') Concentrate
all fire on the capitols. If you've timed it correctly, they'll all fall
at around the same time. Have a couple of your citizen's repairing your
capitols as they'll be the first to be targeted by enemy units. A wall is
essential in Denmark because its battleships can really make things

        Given the German preference for subtlety, propaganda and 'fifth
columnists', this seemed to be an especially apt way to win the game.

7.6)-----------------Preparations For Invasion: 1940-------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 2
Overview:         Kill a lot of ships and airplanes.

        Hey look, it's the Eiffel tower! .....even though you razed
it last time..... When you start off this scenario make lots of
citizens, and then scatter your base with AA guns (lots). Get lots of
gold, iron, wood, and some stone. Don't get the wood on the coast, go
more inland and get wood, where the ships can't hit you from sea. When
you get some more money, make lots of subs, and a good bit of cruisers.
Be sure to keep a lot of subs over where the battleship is under
construction, Britain loves to attack that place. Also put some subs
northwest from your south base, in between you and Britain, because
they attack you from the coast. When you get enough money make a
lighthouse some where close to the coast, and put a lot of AA guns by
it. Also make an Espionage Headquarters. If you can manage to find some
convoys, sink them... you'll get 250 of everything.

        Once you have a big fleet, go to the south (where there's a
small space between you and Britain) and destroy stuff from the coast,
with the Bismarck. Make a ship yard to repair. From here you can take
out 2 airports a bunch of AA guns, and the capitol. Be sure to have
plenty of cruisers, because they will bomb you. Put at least 6 subs on
either side too. Your Bismarck does lots of damage, don't let it die.
After you have the southern coast destroyed, send in your air force. As
your naval fleet dies, spend less rebuilding it, and more on bombers. I
had a full airport of bombers, and another with fighters. If you get an
Espionage Headquarters you can see the AA guns and bomb them with
bombers. Once you get all the AA guns you can really kill stuff. Don't
forget your mission though, be sure to destroy the docks and naval

        Once you wipe out at least all their docks, naval yards, and
airports, start making lots and lots of sub. Also make a transport, and
get a few citizens ready. Move the subs west and destroy all the ships
you come across. When it's safe send your transport to the west island
(Ireland) and unload your citizens. Build a lighthouse in the middle of
the island, and make LOTS of AA guns (unless you already destroyed all
the airports). This lighthouse will give you sight of almost the whole
sea. Now take your subs and go southwest until you come across a whole
bunch of battleships, start sinking. This is the home fleet. It's
composed of like 30 battleships, a carrier, and just a few frigates. Be
sure to kill frigates as soon as you see them. Just keep sinking stuff
until you win (this gets real old fast).

7.7)--------------------Operation "Sea Lion": 1941---------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 2
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Pretty fun mission, lots of airplanes, and fire.

        Well this mission is pretty easy, a good end to the campaign
(yes this campaign has only 7 scenarios),but it's still very long. When
you start off go to each airport and upgrade some planes. Then start
setting rally points, the British coast is just a little ways past
yours. I recommend pausing a lot during this one, to get everything set
up right. You don't need too much organization when it comes to your
airplanes, just send them where you see fit. You should send more
airplanes eastward, since that's where Buckingham Palace is, and most
of the British army. Just sit there and blow stuff up from the sky, oh
yeah... build some transports, 5 or 6. Every now and then France will
revolt but you can bomb them with bombers and that'll shut em up. Be
sure to destroy an opening of barbed wire with your bombers, so you can
land from sea.

        When all the invasion forces arrive (ALL) put them on
transports, and send them over to Britain. Finish off anything that
lives eastward, and put 5 citizens on a boat and bring them over. Build
a settlement right where Buckingham Palace was, and populated it to a
town center. Sometime while you're doing all this United States will
enter the picture. They come in with a carrier that launches lots and
lots of corsairs (starcraft anyone?) Send most of your bombers up here
and bomb them for a while. Destroy the carrier and get some
civilization points. Be sure to take out a bunch of their citizens, and
try to blow up that capitol. You'll also have some spies, put those
next to building and select the building to take it over. Get a
barracks, and tank factory, use the rest to take over town centers for
money. If you can't kill the US from the air just send your army in.
This mission is pretty easy, and mostly straight-forward. Joy, you beat
the German campaign.

***000****8)               Russian Campaign                            

8.1)-----------------------The Crocodile: 2018-------------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 2
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Sneak out of town in a potato truck, and hit a city
                  with 5 nukes at once.

        The first of the Russian campaign, 2018 AD. Your first goal
is to get Grigor out of the city. What you do first is take Pyotr, and
get in the car. Leave Grigor behind for now. Head northeast to the
granary to find a potato truck, get out of your car and in the truck.
Now go back to Grigor and pick him up. Get rid of some of the fog of
war in the city, since you have full access right now. When your done
go to the gates and you'll leave the city easy. Head southeast, once
you get there you'll see a little cinematic.

        You now have complete control over this city. Make 3
diplomats at your capitol, and send each to the fortresses on your map,
ignore all enemy gunfire. After your diplomats get there, give 1000
iron to Rostov, and 1000 gold to Saratov, then the will all ally. If
you don't know how to give tributes click the handshake icon at the top
of the screen. Once you ally with everyone this scenario becomes a bit
easier. Now start getting money. I suggest a granary, with a citizen on
all farms, 6 citizens on gold, 6 on iron, 4-5 on stone, and 6 on wood.
After your resources are set up, start making AA guns across your whole
base, go all out, leave no spot open. Then make a huge wall enclosing
your whole city, and put two gates in it, one where each road is. Be
sure to put tower along the gates, to kill and intruders. Be sure to
make an airport or two.

        Once you have enough money, upgrade into the digital age,
this is a much needed upgrade. Go through the city and check all your
buildings, and upgrade your towers, guns, tanks, and everything else
that needs it. Now comes destroying Voronezh, upgrade one of your
airplanes (I forgot which one) into titan bombers. Make 4 or 5 of
these, send one out to fly around your base to upgrade it, then send it
back. Now if you explored around Voronezh like I told you to at the
beginning, you may have noticed a section without many AA guns. By this
time in the game Ukraine probably already blew these up, if not blow
them up yourself, or send a flare there. It's at the west side of the
city; the wall there should have zero AA. You may want to make a few
more airports so you can launch out more nukes at once. Once you have
enough select all the airports, and set their rally points to right in
front of that wall with no defenses. Once they all get there, send them
in all at once to blow up the capitol. With any luck, at least 1 will
get by those AA guns, and nuke them to death.

8.2)-----------------------Novaya Russia: 2035-------------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 4
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Work on your defensive skills, and nuke stuff.

        This mission is very hard, but there's a certain trick to it.
You shouldn't focus so much on offense as defense. Stay put in your
base and get gold and iron, easier said than done. When you first start
you'll have some civilization points to use, upgrade bomber hit points,
and cost reduction, speed and attack helps if you can spare the points.
Now... get your citizens and make an airport. When it finishes, start
making a titan bomber. While the titan bomber is building, make lots
more citizens. Start making a strategic defense wall, I won't explain
it in detail here... check the "Army Tactics" section for it (#9.5).
Make bottlenecks west and northwest, and be sure to wall in your whole
base, even the back, but you need to include trees in the wall too (the
north trees). Start the wall at the south, you don't have money to
finish it now but even an unfinished wall helps a lot. When you get
citizens put them on stone, gold, and iron. You have enough food and
gold to last for a while. When the titan bomber finishes send it into
the air and get the HP upgrade, and attack upgrade. Save before you do
this, you may not get it on the first try. Send it southeast to find
the rebels base, you need to find the capitol. When you find it, bomb
it. You make it in barely, and destroy the rebellion. This early
victory helps make the game a lot easier later.

        Now for a while focus mostly on defense, get lots of stone,
and continue construction of your wall. Also send a guy north of your
base, when you get there you'll gain control of a water city, not much
use but it'll hold back the alliance forces. Use gladiator tanks, and
thor AT guns for defense. When you get enough spare gold and iron make
2 more titan bombers. When those are ready send them west to Ukraine,
get more upgrades if you can, tell them to attack the capitol, it
should go flawlessly. Once you do that some doctor guy will let you
build cybers, you can use these to replace the gladiator tanks if you
want (use the zeus, or ares cybers, their both pretty good). Be sure to
always keep at least one titan bomber in your airport at all times, the
best defense is a good offense (not the other way around!) Every now
and then the 3 alliances will attack you at once making it very hard to
defend, nuke them before they get past your bottleneck (you should have
the wall almost done by now). By now you should be going low on food or
wood, make a farm in some corner where its well protected, and put
about 6-7 citizens to farm. There's also a forest up north, get wood
from there, be sure to make plenty of AA guns here too because the
enemy LOVES to attack this area. Once you've been there for a while and
have some money, keep making titan bombers. Once you have at least 4
this scenario is almost done! Send them north to attack either base, it
doesn't matter, pick one. If you have speed and hit points upgraded you
should be able to get through, if you can't make more. After you bomb
either capitol you'll win this one!

8.3)-------------------Changing of the Guard: 2064---------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 1
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         Run around get some guys and kill some stuff.

        I'm not sure how to write a walkthrough for such a simple
scenario, but for completion of this FAQ I'm gonna try. Well as soon as
you start this one, it tells you everything to do. Walk around the city
and go to every spot on the map collecting more units. When you visit
tank factories you get tanks. When you visit barracks you get black
robes, and black robe officers. When you visit the cyber factories you
get 3 cybers. Sometimes you won't get anything from a visit, but be
sure to go to all the garrisons (the game will tell you when you're
done). Somewhere along the line Grigor will have a heart attack or
something along those lines. Just keep looping around the city and
don't worry about it. When you come across the hospital in the
southwest (the temple of zeus building) just go there and you'll be all
fixed up with a new and improved pacemaker (oooo.... ahhhh....)

        Once you visit all the garrisons, head to the center of the
city. It doesn't matter which direction you come from, just blow up a
gate and walk in. Kill anything that attacks you, destroy the towers in
there too. You'll probably lose both of your hyperions, but it doesn't
matter, as soon as you blow up the fortress and kill the few guys that
come out, you win.

8.4)---------------------Jewel in the East: 2092-----------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 3
Fun        (1-5): 3
Overview:         Convert 8 factories, fly around, stop a time machine,
                  and steal technology.

        This scenario is a little tougher than the last one, but not
as hard as "Novaya Russia." Your mission is to convert 8 cyber
factories and\\or laboratories. When you start of your located a little
northwest of a small town, head in and destroy their army, then all the
universities. DON'T DESTROY ANYTHING ELSE. After you kill the army
you'll gain control of a temple. Make all your cybers stand ground and
put them out of town for a while. Make sure not to blow up the farm
west of you town, you'll need it. Go to the temple and make a bunch of
priests and start converting the town. All you NEED to convert is just
the cyber factories, but for defensive reasons I recommend converting
the entire town (houses included). Once you've converted all you need
take your cybers in the town to guard. Now take your priests west a bit
to the farm, and start converting citizens. Once you get a citizen send
him to the iron and gold, and build a capitol right in the middle. Once
the capitol is done you'll notice you can't build citizens, you must
convert them. Just keep converting citizens from the farm, Beijing will
replenish them for you, so just keep converting. If you want you can
head farther west to find more. Once you have enough start making LOTS
of AA guns, the computer AI wants revenge for all the nuking you did to
them. They'll send in nukes every now and then so be prepared. You
should also make a few towers to help defend. Now with your citizens,
make a granary and start getting food... also get gold, iron/wood/stone
isn't important.

Correction from: Mr.Rashid Fikree
In the 4th Russian campaign-jewel in the east-first when we enter the
town and destroy its army and university, and train priests, you said
that we convert everything including houses, but that is wrong; becuase
if you convert houses the enemy will send nukes on you, but if you
don't convert houses the enemy won't send nukes.

        Start making lots of ares cybers at your factory, you need
about 10-15, upgrade HP if you want. Now send them to the southeast
spot on your map. On your way there you'll come across another city, or
at least you should, just ignore it for now. When you get to the town, 
first aim for the airports and AA guns. Totally raze this town, except
for the cyber stuff. Continue going east to find more airports, blow
those up too. Keep going east and do the same to this town, blow up all
but the cyber buildings. You should have blown up 6 airports, if not...
check again. After your done head back up to the city you ignore and
raze everything, you won't be able to kill the capitols, so leave them
there. Now go back up to your base and start heading southwest with
your ares' and Major Molotov. When you get to the spot on your map blow
up the towers, AA guns, and any offense there, then send Molotov into
the science place. He'll say something about a time machine, don't
worry about it yet. Head back to your base and pick up 5-7 priests, and
a few citizens. Start going back to the southeast town, be sure to
bring Molotov. Lead to way with your ares', so you don't lose any
priests or citizens. Once you get there convert the factories and
laboratories. Also build some towers around the area. You'll get a
message about the time machine and you'll have to destroy it. Just send
your ares' up there and kill the standing army. Then send Molotov into
the time machine, you won't be needing him anymore...... After you're
done with that finish converting at least 8 cyber buildings, you may
get an "1800 seconds until you win a wonder game" message, you may not.
I got it, but then I loaded my game again and didn't get it. If you do
get it, just stay put and guard with your ares' until the timer runs

8.5)---------------------A Change of Heart: 2097-----------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 2
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Pretty easy one if you do it my way, pretty hard if
                  you don't, the choice is yours. Blow up Cuba, Blow up

        When you start Grigor goes crazy and kills all your
transports, so there's no backing out. Go west until you hit some gold,
iron, stone, and wood. Build a capitol right in between the iron and
gold. Put all your guys with attack out ahead the road a little bit.
Now begin pumping out citizens from your capitol, make lots and lots.
Put 6 on gold, 6 on iron, 6 on food (make a granary in the southeast
area), and about 4-5 on wood. Make 3 or 4 cyber factories, an airport,
and a hospital. Now make a wall all around the coast so nothing from
sea can attack you. Also make a few towers on the west side, not many
you won't need them. If you have less than 1500 stone then start
getting more. As you get food and gold make the ares II cybers
(upgraded cybers from the ones you used last scenario). Get at least 15
of these and head west into the base right next to you. While you're
doing this if you have the money, make some titan bombers. Totally raze
this little city with your ares', you shouldn't have much of a problem.
Now if you don't have many cybers left make some more.

        Now for Cuba... Your cybers can just fly over water so head
up to Cuba. NOTE: There is a bug in the game that will make it so when
you right click to move with your ares, the little ring will show up
red, but you can still move there. Once in Cuba your mission here isn't
to totally raze everything, because after your there for a little while
fighters will tear you up. Kill every AA gun you come across, you may
also need to kill the guardians, they can be a real nuisance. Be sure
to leave some ares' at home to protect against ships and stuff. After
all your ares' in Cuba are dead you should have some titan bombers done
by now. Send them in and start nuking. Nuke up until where your ares'
died. While their nuking make more ares'... continue until you totally
kill all of Cuba. Be sure to kill those airports ASAP. Once you're done
in Cuba make some docks and 3-4 towers as close as you can get them to
the dock. Make a couple of frigates and start blowing up subs as they
come to you, the towers will help. You can use hyperions to blow up
subs, but towers and frigates are easier. Anyway, once you've blown up
a lot of subs make a transport. Pack on 5 citizens and head to Cuba,
keep the frigates nearby.

        Your citizens should be safe on Cuba if you destroyed
everything with the cybers, but keep a bunch of ares' with you because
stuff will attack you from sea. Head up to where their capitol was (the
big blue spot on the ground). Make a settlement, populate it into a
town center. Make a few more citizens and make 2 docks, 1 naval yard, 2
(YES TWO) cyber factories, and a siege factory. I know what you're
saying... siege factory? What are you planning? Start making lots and
lots of colossus artillery. Tell them to attack ground ('T' button) on
your buildings. Weaken all your buildings to very low hp. Then go back
to your home base and kill EVERYTHING there except for Molotov. To
destroy one of your own units just select it and press delete. Delete
all your buildings, citizens, ares', airports, EVERYTHING. Now you
should only have a very crappy base up in Cuba. Start making that last
cyber factory, and stop it when it's almost done. Delete all your ares'
that are guarding your citizens. Now finish the cyber factory. You'll
watch a little cinematic, and oh look; now you're United States and,
you gotta kill Russia.

        You'll have 3 nukes up north to use, its pretty simple just
select the nuke, and right click a building to kill. Kill the naval
yard, town center, and a cyber factory. Now look around sea and take
all your battleships and send them to Cuba to kill stuff from sea. Now,
up in United States get some citizens and make a cyber factory or two,
and start making ares'. Next you need to make a time machine in Cuba,
it costs 2000 iron, 2000 wood, and 1000 stone, if you don't have enough
of any of them, get it. You have like 20 citizens so it shouldn't be
too hard. Once you have 3 ares' send them to Cuba to finish Russia off.
Keep sending in reinforcements though. You'll need a bunch for later
on. Once you have enough money for a time machine put some citizens,
Molotov, and Molly on a transport and go to Cuba. Start making a time
machine, and once it's done just sit there. Your ares' should kill
anything that attacks. I got bored so I made a huge wall around the
time machine... 3 layers... Anyways.... once there's only a little
while left until its charged Russia will start sending lots of
hyperions to kill it, but you should be able to slice them up with your
ares'. Finally the thing will finish charging, then just put Molotov
and Molly right next to it, they warp off into the past and you win.

8.6)-------------------A Bad Case of Dťjŗ Vu: 2018---------------------

Difficulty (1-5): 4
Fun        (1-5): 4
Overview:         Same map as the first mission, but now you must
                  destroy Novaya Russia.

        This mission is very hard, you only have modern age troops,
while Novaya Russia is in the nano age. The first thing you should do
is start making tons of tanks from all your tank factories, make about
20. Also at the same time make lots of citizens, put 6 on gold, 6 on
iron, 6 on stone, 8 on food, and 6 on wood (build another settlement
east). Also make some more citizens for defense. Your first task is to
get some good defense, line your entire wall with towers, and upgrade
their range. After you line the wall with towers, line it again with AA
guns, upgrade their attack, range, and HP. You should also wall in the
area that leads to your wood choppers. Then take Molotov and Molly to
the Ukraine, they'll ally with you, but it won't make too much of a
difference. I sent a flare and they sent in 2 trench mortars. Once you
ally send them both to the back corner of your base out of harms way.

        Now that you have economy and defense, make an espionage
headquarters. Then train a spy, you can only have 1 at once. Take a few
tanks (5-8), and a few howitzer cannons with you and go northeast to
the base there. Blow up any resistance, then blow up the gate. Once the
gate is dead send in the cannons and tanks to lure any tower, or army
fire, and put your spy right next to the cyber factory and select it.
Now you have the ability to build cyber factories. Go back to your base
and make some cyber factories, at least 3. Keep making ares'... lots of
ares'. Also make a transport, and upgrade its speed, and train another
spy. Send the transport with ares' as guards along the west side of the
map to avoid any enemies. Land the spy on the ground, and use ares' to
blow up some towers. Now get the airports technology. This is all you
need to win, so now you don't need to do anymore of these stealing

        Now, find the 2 airports that are in the northwest corner of
your base, and make some titan bombers on one, and nebula fighters on
the other. You also need to make a whole lot more ares', at least 20.
Once you have a nuke done, send it with nebulas to where all the
airports are. Don't nuke the airport because they just rebuild it
within a minute. Instead look for huge hurricane vortex type thing.
Don't worry, it won't kill you. You need to nuke this, aim for the time
controller in the very center. This is a time vortex; it warps
reinforcements from the future to help Novaya Russia.

        If you've been building ares' for a while you should have a
big army by now, remember... at least 20. Once you have enough go to
the northeast base and totally raze, destroy everything. Be sure to get
the time controller here too. Once this base is destroyed go south down
to the center base. You shouldn't have lost too many ares' in that
battle. Destroy any AA guns, towers, and offensive units. Be sure to
blow down the gate to the big building. Keep fighting until you have
nothing left, and ignore any airplanes that attack you. After you're
done if it looks safe enough go ahead and put Molly and Molotov on a
transport and send them over. If it doesn't look too safe, nuke them a
lot. Once you get over there drop off Molly and Molotov, or either one.
Now watch one of those endings where it doesn't tell you exactly what
happens... You're now done with the Russian campaign, and if you did
it in order then the game too.

***0000***9)                 Army Tactics                              

9.1)------------------------Phalanx Combat-----------------------------

        This combat style should be used during the Greek campaigns.
I listed it in one of my walkthroughs, but not in depth. For this you
need companion cavalry, swordsmen, and optional archers. Group each
type into a group so when you come across an enemy you'll have more
control. First send the cavalry zipping around to the side, or back and
take care of their archers. Use your archers to attack the front line,
and use the swordsmen to hold them back. Just burn the candle at both
ends basically.

9.2)------------------------Static Offense-----------------------------

        This one can be used in most scenarios. Its simple, in fact
the name says it all, use buildings as offense. Bring lots of citizens
with you so you can build stuff up real fast. Make towers in strategic
areas to hit the enemy while your army tears them apart. What you can
also do is build some towers up, then lure an enemy into them. They can
also be used to defend you army from airplanes if they can't attack


        There are many defects in Empire Earth's AI system, this is
the one I find the most apparent. First what you do is locate an army,
and station your army just out of reach of them. Then you take one of
your guys, with either long range, or lots of hp... and attack their
army. Then run to the back of your army. The enemy will follow you
franticly, and will only be interested in killing the lure, and nothing
else. They will run right into your army and let you tear them apart!
This works best in the Greek and English campaigns, because once you
get to the German campaign its trench warfare which isn't fun.

9.4)------------------------Trench Warfare-----------------------------

        This isn't fun at all, you may have to create lots and lots
of infantry just to move forward a tiny bit. If you have air support it
is much easier however. Move in with your ground troops slowly, killing
anyone who steps in your way with artillery or tanks. When you come
across a big army, send in your airplanes, bomb them to death. If you
have no airplanes then try to use the 'Lure' tactic. Trench warfare
isn't about whoever has more strategy, it's who has more fire power.

9.5)----------------------Strategic Defense----------------------------

        I made this strategy especially for the Russian scenario
"Novaya Russia." That mission requires great defense in order to win.
The point of strategic defense is to defend your base with minimal
casualties, and focus incurred damage into one area (a tower or wall).
There comes a point where just making a wall around your whole base and
adding a few gates won't cut it anymore. Instead of this you still make
a wall around your base, but put a few holes in it. On one side of the
hole, you need to extend the wall at a 90 degree angle, just a few
squares. That way when an enemy unit comes in through the hole he'll
probably go away from that wall, either that or go around it, but that
makes him easy to kill because he has to walk a lot to get around. In
the center of each hole make a tower, but allow enough room for them to
get through. When they attack you, they will attack the tower mostly,
that's where you can send return fire from inside. Check the pic below
for a visual.

       |                44     |                       |

Darkforce suggests:
Just wondering but wouldn't it be easier to make the wall soemthing like
        __________________    ________________________
       /                       |     11               \\
       |                44  3  |     11                |     
       |                44 ____|                       |

1=Something you need to protect (iron mines in "Novaya Russia"
2=Enemy attack here
3=Tower here
4=Backup units here

        As you can see the enemy will not be able to get to whatever
you need to protect, and will be guided right into your fire. There's
also another type you can, bottlenecks. The object here is to let only
a few units in at once so you can kill them 1 or 2 at a time. Again,
make a hole in your wall but make it get narrower a few squares in.
        __________________    ________________________
       /                  \\   /                       \\

       |                44   |                         |

        When the enemy attacks you can pick them off a few at a time.
Be sure to keep some citizens handy to repair the tower, because it
will probably become damaged over time. There is one problem with this,
however, sometimes the attackers will become frustrated and just attack
your walls. At this point you'll have to go out your base to get them,
but then you'll get bottlenecked. To avoid this don't make it too
narrow. One other problem you may encounter is if you don't make enough
holes. Again, they'll just attack the wall at some random spot to get
in, so be sure to make enough holes, and position them where the
attacks will come from.

9.6)----------------------Army Organization----------------------------

        Sometimes you'll face lots of enemies at once and must kill
them all. Organization and synchronization helps. Instead of attacking
all of them at once, and letting the computer decide what attacks what,
pause the game and set up your attacks. Make a lot of units attack one
guy at once, so he'll die, and won't be able to deal any more damage.
That way you'll have that much less damage to take in, make sense? If
you're fighting a 5 on 5 match (keeping it simple) and each of your
guys attacks someone different, all of your enemies will be dealing
damage at once. If you take all your guys, and attack one and kill it,
then he won't deal anymore damage, then attack another guy. That way
you'll incur less damage. Also be sure your not attacking the wrong
guys. Don't use infantry to attack a tank, use and AT gun, ect ect. I
can't really make generalizations because the types in this game a
pretty diverse, but you'll be able figure out what goes well against
what. Use common sense, and don't spread out your fire.

*0*0****0*10)          Frequently Asked Questions                      

Q:      What should I put my civilization bonus points into?
A:      Well, since most of the campaigns cover multiple epochs I would
        recommend some timeless bonuses. Put points into the "Civ -
        General" category, and "Civ - Economy". You could also put them
        in the wall\\towers category. You can even look forward at the
        upcoming scenarios, to see what you are going to use. Be
        careful though, the more points you put in one category the
        more expensive the other points become. Just don't do something
        stupid, like putting 40 points into cybers on the Greek

Q:      What does a flare do?
A:      A flare tells your allies to attack wherever you sent the
        flare. It doesn't have much use in the campaign, as you don't
        have many allies, but you will use it in a few scenarios.

Q:      What is the little green bar under my units for?
A:      That's morale; it affects how well your units fight.

Q:      How can I raise morale?
A:      Morale can be raised by having houses nearby, having heroes
        nearby, and also being in range of a town center/capitol
        (I think).

Q:      Knock Knock.
A:      Shut up.

Q:      What are the different epochs?
A:      In order of time they are: Prehistoric Age, Stone Age, Copper
        Age, Bronze Age, Dark Age, Middle Ages, Renaissance, Imperial
        Age, Atomic Age - WW1, Atomic Age - WW2, Atomic Age - Modern,
        Digital Age, and Nano Age.

Q:      How do I make a gate in my walls?
A:      Just build a solid wall where you want a gate (be sure to make
        it long enough, and it must be straight). Select the wall and
        look in the bottom right hand corner of your screen... see it?
        Click the build gate button and place it where you want.

Q:      What do all the wonders do? Their descriptions aren't all that
A:      Well...
        -The Temple of Zeus makes your units be able to heal
          themselves. Its not like a steady heal, it heals a certain
          amount every second.
        -The Pharos Lighthouse lets you see anything in water, for a
          certain distance from the lighthouse, but don't worry its
          range is pretty massive.
        -The Coliseum makes your population limit higher, and your
          enemy's population limit lower. I believe it is by 15%.
        -The Library at Alexandria does just what it says, reveals
          enemy buildings.
        -The Ishtar Gates double the HP of your walls\\towers\\gates
        -The Tower of Babylon this great wonder allows you to convert
          an entire group of enemies at once.
        Note: These are the Greek names, all the campaigns will show
              a different name, but same effect.

Q:      Why don't you use colors in your guide? Their much easier.
A:      If you'll notice... during the scenarios colors and countries
        change a lot. In one mission a certain country can be 4
        different colors throughout the scenario.

Q:      How do I build a town center/capitol?
A:      Build a settlement then build a bunch of citizens, select them
        and use the populate command on the settlement. When you select
        the settlement it'll show you at the bottom left how much you
        need to make it the next level.

Q:      How do I change my color?
A:      Well, you can't. In the campaign your color is chosen by who
        ever made the campaign. Your color in multiplayer games depends
        on when you came into the game. And in single player random
        maps your always first player, therefore always blue.

Q:      Why can't I upgrade into the __________ epoch? I've done
        everything required.
A:      No you haven't done everything required. You need to build at
        least 2 buildings in each epoch before you can upgrade into
        the next. They can't be towers or walls or stuff, they must be
        barracks, stable, ect. Wonders and fortresses count too. The
        buildings can also be the same thing (i.e. two stables.)

Q:      Why can't I use cheats in the campaign? Do you have any way I
        can cheat? Do you have any hacks? Do you cheat? Can you help me
A:      NO! STOP ASKING! The campaign isn't that hard, beat it on your

Q:      Bla bla bla bla bla campaign editor bla bla bla.
A:      I don't know.

Q:      Do you have the expansion, and can you write a FAQ for it.
A:      I wrote this FAQ over my summer vacation, and well I just don't
        have enough time. I might do it over some other break I get,
        but I'll probably have other things to do. If GameFAQ's doesn't
        have a guide for the expansion by summer then I'll write one,
        that's a promise. Oh, and no... I don't have the expansion yet.
