Merlin and the Treasures of Britain

By Martin Frost

 Where do I go without getting shot at?
 Should I fight on land or sea?
 Why are the costs for Towers and buildings the normal ones, without the Roman bonuses?
 I returned all the Artifacts but haven't won.

Ignore the land on either side and drop Amon off on the piece of land just above you. Here is a lone Villie to convert and resources to get you started. You need somewhere quiet and all the islands nearby are either inhabited by enemies or they will drop troops on you by Transport, so now is not the time to fight. Find somewhere safe to build up.

 Like where?

There are several places and ways.

Land in Dumonia and build up under the protection of King Arthur. Look at the instruction map for his rough location - the top of the instruction map is the right hand edge of the in game map.

Many of the other enemies are still in the process of building up and can be taken out quickly. The easiest is King Mark, to the west of Dumonia, in what is now Cornwall. Convert their Hero Mark Antony and destroy their TC, killing or converting any Villies, then get building.

Or you could seek out your fellow Priests and use them to grab an army quickly.

Both. To start with though, make some Towers in your base for protection then start pumping out ships, saving your food for research until you can build good units. There are a few enemies around that you can severely cripple from the sea, notably Cerdic (the browns) who shot at you at the start.

It's a weird set up but you can make good use of it. Academy and Siege Workshop are restricted but you have a full tech tree for everything else - Priests get Astrology and you can make Compies, CAs and Camels, upgrade to Guard Tower etc.

You must have 12 Priests for the ceremony.
