As the Romans, Gauls or Teutons you rule your village with authority and wisdom. Protect yourself from foreign invaders with military units and take over land to create an ever larger empire...
The free-to-play browser game Travian offers you classic game play but with some new additions and graphics. Of course, you will choose your nation to lead whether it is the technically advanced Romans, the peaceful Gauls or the particularly war-like Teutons.
Depending on which nation you choose in Travian will greatly influence how you play. For example, as the Romans you will want to educate your troops and research new technology to earn Elite units, whereas with the Teutons you will have larger, more powerful armies and are offensively stronger than the others.
The Hero System gives you many different opportunities to explore in Travian. You can send your hero on a fantastic adventure into different areas such as the forest. In these areas you will find items that you can use to equip your hero and make them more powerful and ready to lead your troops into battle.
To do all of this in Travian, you must collect resources. Lumber, Clay, Iron and Crops are the resources that you will have to collect because they are all necessary to build structures and recruit troops. Without them, you will be hard pressed to have sufficient defenses, let alone a standing army!
You must build your empire from the ground up and gather the necessary resources to sustain it. Travian gives you so many different ways to do this through research and upgrades. Create armies that will crush your enemies and defend your cities from those who threaten you. You are the chief and you must lead your people to glory.
