Prologue Choosing Officers Building and Teching Resources Unleashing your Inner Beast Hoo-Man? FAQ And the end. -=Prologue:=- Commanders are almost exactly like commanders in any RTS game out there. You tell your units (PC's[Player Character's] in this case...) to do stuff. The only NPC's in this game are the workers, whom can start buildings and mine stone and gold. Note: This FAQ requires basic knowledge of the game, and it is recommended you play as a PC before learning how to be a commander. -=Chapter 1: Basic Commandeering=- The basics. What everyone needs to know, and has yet to find out. Anyway,there are about 3 basicrules of thumb to follow: 1) Choosing Officers 2) Building & Teching 3) Expanding If you can master those three, you should be set for awhile. -=Chapter 2: Choosing Officers=- Choosing a commander is quite a tough thing. If you make the wrong choice, then you could be screwed for awhile. Chances are, you're probably not going to be the commander as soon as you log onto a server, so take a little while to see who has the highest kills. Then, when you become commander, choose them as commander. For those that don't know, you can have two officers, and they get quite a few bonuses: a. They do extra damage. b. They regenerate health. c. They can tell troops where to go. Quite a useful ability, no? Officers can make or break a good game. I've seen it happen before, noob becomes officer, and starts abusing the power. Remember, you can demote people back into your lovabel peons if you so wish. -=Chapter 3: Building and Teching=- Ah, the great glories of being a commander. One of these such things include being able to tell your workers to build stuff. Remember, you can tell PC's to build, too. I will go into the individual tech trees for each race (Humans and Beasts) in laterchapters. Teching is the process in which you research weapons and magic for your PC's to use at their own discretion. This is a very important element to the game. Memorize both Tech Trees, you will need them. -=Chapter 4: Resources=- You need money to fund your glorious empire of peons, don't you? You can order PC's or workers to mine Red Stone (used for buildings) or gold. (used for upgrading towers and to loan your PC's money so they can buy Tech's.) Both of which are equally important. I personally usually put about 5-7 workers on RS(red stone), and 3-4 on gold. -=Chapter 5: Unleashing your Inner Beast=- So, you elected yourself to become the leader of hundreds of beasts everywhere? Good work, governer, now you're gonna have to learn yourself how to lead the peoples. First on the agenda should be knowing the tech trees and buildings. Main Building(Lair): This is the building you that if you lose, you lose the game. This is the only building you start out with. Can be upgraded, each upgrade lets you use new units.

They're big, and they love killin' them beasts. And that I'll add stuff about them in the .50 version. Which will come out sooon. Buildings: Building 1: Stronghold The nuts and bolts of every commanders arsenal, and can be upgraded just like the beast one. Nothing much to say, except that if it dies, your team loses. Building 2: Arsenal Lets you research Bow technology. Is also the prerequisite for all of the other human buildings except for towers. Building 3: Chemical Factorium Let's you research chemical technology. This is mainly used against buildings when you don't have siege yet. Building 4: Electrical Factorium Lets you use electrical technology. This is anti-personel weaponry, but IMO it's not really as useful as magnetic weapons. Building 5: Magnetic Factorium Lets you research gun technology. This is the real nuts & bolts, of the human offensive, since it starts of with Scattergun, then Repeater(machinegun), and finishes off with the strong coil-gun. Building 6,7,8: Human Towers Arrow tower shoots arrows, can be upgraded to mortar tower, shield tower and electric tower. They are essentially the same thing as the Beast towers, except with different names. Mortar tower shoots mortars,Shield Tower protects buildings, Electric tower deflects projectiles. Building 9: Garrison Same thing as a sub-lair, it's used for expansions and spawn points. Building 10: Siege Workshop Allows your units to become siege weapons, the Ballista, and the Catapult. Requires level 2, and level 3 stronghold. Building 11: Research Center Allows you to research items. Magnetic items require Magnetic Factorium, etc, etc. UNITS: Nomad: Default starting unit that all your PC's will spawn as.

Vote to kick him. What if I just plain don't like my commander? Vote to kick him. How many commanders can I have at a time? 1 per team. How many officers can I have at a time? 2 per team. Can I impeach myself? Yes, you'll move to the front lines. Do commanders gain experience? Yes, they do. But it's only put into use if you go to the front lines to fight! A chart of experience, please? Fine. Killing a player gains 10 exp, An order of yours followed gains you 1 exp, An order given is 1 exp, Use commander power gives 5, Building gives you 20, and a tech research gives you 10, Killing a building of your oponents gives you 50, Getting one of your buildings killed loses you 20.
