    Hello, my name is Nathaniel Modlich or Namod65. I will be helping you out with
    getting through the task of completing the trial version of Age of Emprires 2,
    The Conquerors Expansion. This is one of my all time favorite games. I
    downloaded the trial version and liked it a lot. I bought the game about 3 days
    later. As you probably know, this game is the expansion pack to Age of Kings,
    which you need if you want to play the full version of this game. If you do
    want to get full version of The Conquerors, then I recomend getting the Gold
    edition of Age of Empires 2. It has both games and a few extras, including
    tutors on how to play. I decided to write for the trial verision because I did
    not feel like taking the time to write for the full game. Well, I think that is
    enough for a inro and now on to the rest of this FAQ.

    If you have any questions or comments then you can email them to me. Please do
    not send any advertisements, pictures, stupid questions and other things not
    related to this game. Please make sure to include something about the game in
    your topic for the email so I will not ignore it.

    You can be two different civs in this trial version. Both do not have cavalry.

     B01      Aztecs
    ':*:'   =*=-=+=-=*=-=+=-=*=-=+=-=*=-=+=-=*=-=+=-=*=-=+=-=*=-=+=-=*=-=+=-=*=-=+=
    
    Many people chose to be the Aztecs just because their buildings look cool. I
    personaly am not too fond of them because they do not have horses or gunpower.
    They are really only a powerful civ when put against other civs with out horses
    or someone who doesn't use horses. They have a very usefull unique unit that is
    good against other infantry. Anyway, here are the characteristics from the game
    manual.
    
    Unique unit: Jaguar Warrior (anti-infantry unit)
    
    Unique Tech: Garland Wars (+4 infantry attack)
    
    Team bonus: Relics +33% gold
    
    -Start with Eagle Warrior, not Scout Cavalry
    -Villagers carry +5
    -All military units created 15% faster
    -Monks +5 HP for each Monastary technology

    The Mayans are very similar to the Aztecs. They have the same building design,
    and also do not have cavalry. They have a powerfull unique unit that can fire
    arrows. I do not like these guys very much either. You can only play with them
    in muiltiplayer on this demo.
    
    Unique Unit: Plummed Archer
    
    Unique Tech: El Dorado (+40 Eagle Warrior HP)
    
    Team Bonus: Walls cost -50%
    
    -Start with +1 villager, Eagle Warrior (not scout cavalry), -50 food.
    -Resources last 50% longer.
    -Archery range units cost -10% feudal age, -20% castle age, -30% imperial age.

    You only get to play one level in the demo verison, but it is one of the better
    levels in the game. First there is some stuff that you need to remember before
    you start. There are 4 monastaries on the map. You can not see them, but they
    are marked with the little flags on the map. DO NOT GO NEAR THEM! Wait until
    the end to claim the monastaries.
    
    There are three enemies: Purple, Orange, and Red. Purple is the hardest of the
    three. Red is the easiest. To beat this level you need to put a relic in each
    of the monastaries. There are many ways to beat this level. My stratagy is to
    wipe out all of the enemies, then you will be home free to put the relics in
    the monastaries. Once you claim a monastary, your enemies will try to destroy
    it so don't claim any yet.
    
    OK, now lets start. You start out with 3 villagers and 3 Eagle Warriors. You
    also have a few towers guarding your town's boarders. Send all of your vills
    to get food from the turkeys to the north. While they are doing that make 3
    more villagers. Send one of those new villagers to help with the turkeys and
    make the other two chop wood from trees near the town center.
    
    Soon one of the Eagle warriors will say that he hears a jaguar. Soon after
    that 4 jaguars will come near your town center from the east. Use your Eagle
    warriors to kill them. Every time you get enough food, make a villager. Keep
    making them until you get to about 15 villagers. When you run out of the
    turkeys, build a mill near the berry bushes to the south. Get the bushes for
    food.
    
    After a while the orange will attack from the north side with a few archers.
    Just let your towers take care of them. When you get the 15 villagers, make
    five of them build a lumber camp by the big forest to the north. Make five go
    and mine gold by your south tower. Now make the last six start farming by the
    mill. Create a few more and make them mine stone to the northeast. Be warned,
    because red will send a few miltia every no and then to attack you, let your
    towers take them out. When purple attacks, you will need to have you Eagle
    Warroirs help the towers.
    
    Wait for a while. When you have a good amount of resources, build a market and
    a archery range. Now go to the Castle Age. Wall in your town by building a wall
    in front of your towers to the north to block that path. Then build a wall to
    the southwest and block that way in. Allways remember to check back on your
    villagers to make sure they are doing something. If the minners mine all the
    gold or stone then just send them to go mine gold or stone at a new site. Use
    the farm reseeds at the mill to keep your farms going. Now would be a good time
    to upgrade your soldiers at the barracks. Upgrade them to Longswords men.
    
    Now just sit back and wait for your resources to come in. When you have quite
    a lot send a few villagers southwest and build a castle near the red, but not
    right next to them. Also build a few barracks. Now create a army of Long
    Swordsmen and Jaguar Warriors. After you have your army made, go down to attack
    the red. I would move in a destroy their town center first. Then go down south
    and destroy their two military buildings across the water. They will be pretty
    helpless now. Finish them off by destroying the rest of their buildings and
    villagers.
    
    Now go up northward with you villagers and build a castle in that gap between
    the red and purple. Make sure the castle is in range of a purple building. Next
    build a few gaurd towers around the castle. When the castle is built it will
    start firing on the purple building. The purple will start sending guys at your
    castle. Just let the purple "feed" your castle this way. You should now build
    a siege workshop and build some rams.
    
    Use them to help your army destroy the purple. Let the rams kill the castle and
    get rid of the other buildings with your army. You will do all this almost
    unchallenged because the purple is still feeding your castle. :)
    
    Now move your rams and army to the north boarder of your town. Destroy the
    orange gate and move in with your rams and army. Send your rams to the north to
    take care of the castle. While the rams are doing that, move in with your army
    and destroy the town center and other buildings.
    
    Now that every one is out of the way, go to each flag on the map and claim each
    monastary. You will need to build a dock to get to one. Watch out because on
    the other side of the water is a lot of jaguars. When you claim the monastary
    by the orange some enemy Eagle Warriors will come. After you have claimed each
    one, build a monk from each monastary and use them to put the relics in each
    monastary so there is one relic in each monastary. After you do that, the game
    is over.
