Hello and welcome to my Walkthrough on the PC game, Medieval Total War.
It is designed to help people stuck in certain parts of the game. I will
not be covering a certain mission for a particular country because the
surrounding countries are likely going to change their strategy. So I
will cover all of the aspects of the game in a general way. I will tell
you when to use what and what each item does. I will also get to listing
the men and their power points. Anyone wishing for an update will have to
e-mail me on what you want to be heard. I will try my best to cover all of
the topics in this game. Just ask general questions please. I can only
give hints throughout your quest as it is different from all the others.
Let's start this action and get on with the FAQ!



<><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
2.0 Version History
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

3/14/03 Version 1.00 Started the format of the FAQ. Updates to come.
3/15/03 Version 1.01 Finished Walkthrough. Added Danes FAQ.

3/18/03 Version 1.03 Province info and small addons to sections.
                     Units FAQ and other info added. Huge update.
4/03/03 Version 1.5  The game is now completed. I also added a 
quicklist to the unit section. It is basically for easier 
navigation. After about one more update this FAQ will be Finalized.
Any questions, please e-mail me.
4/16/03 Version Final Fixed the FAQ up and finalized it.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
3.0 Controls
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Come on! This is a computer game. The controls are pretty basic but I
might as well list them for obvious reasons.

These are all used when playing a normal campaign.

1X. To move the world screen around, move the mouse cursor to the edge of
the screen with the direction desired.

2X. To see your options or to create a building, go to the sub menu on
the bottom of the screen and click the desired building or option.

3X. To exit the game you must press the Esc button on the top right of
your keyboard. I'm pretty sure this is the only way to exit so really
remember this.

4X. To select a province simply left click on it.

5X. To view certain information on areas of the world, right click on the
selected province.

Well, that is all of the useful information I can give you with controls. As
I said, this is not a control type of game, it is strategy. Let's get into
more detail with some option information.



<><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
4.0 Options
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><>


As you first load the game you will be presented with many options. On this
menu you should see the following.

|Quick Battle
|Single Player
|Multiplayer
|Campaign Tutorial
|Battle Tutorial
|Options
|Quit

Each of these options will lead you to different game modes. I will explore
each game mode with you. These are the general options. Then, as you can see,
there is a more detailed options. These I will get to later. For now let's
explore the Quick Battle mode.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
4.1 Quick Battle
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

This is exactly what it says. You are going to be randomly chosen into some
battle. It is good for people in need of a challenge. You are to have a random
amount of units.

When you first start the battle it will ask you if you want to start the
battle. It will also give you the weather. I would recommend you wait until the
weather is calm. Once it is calm select OK.

Now it is battle formation time. You will get a button that says "begin
battle." Do not press it until you have chosen a wise battle formation. I would
pick the loose formation. Though it was not used in the Medieval times, it should
have been! Being close together makes your units an easier target. Anyway, pick
the formation and click begin battle. Immediately in the beginning click on your
men and make them charge to your enemy. Charging is more powerful and will give
you an advantage. In general, keep your archers in the back and shooting. Have
your knights, peasants or whatever you have fighting in the front. This is a very
smart strategy when it comes to winning a battle. At the end of the battle you will
be able to see your stats. You will see what men died and how many men a certain
unit killed. This will determine the stronger units for your particular strategy.
Now return to the main menu or play another battle.


%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
4.2 Single Player
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

This is the "main" part of the game. From here you can start a new campaign.
This is, in a nutshell, a quest to take over the world. I know it seems brutal
but it is true. Here you can also create maps. It is nothing major, just another
mode in this game that will make you more jubilant. Back to starting a new campaign.
Click on this option. The next screen will give you a difficulty level. I would
strongly recommend you play EASY first. If you are experienced then choose your own
preference.

Here you will get 2 sets of options. You can pick the age you want to play
in and the way to win, or take over the world. The first set is the age or time
period. Different countries occupy more land in different times so watch out! I would
say that...

Early Period- Starters

High Period- Average

Late Period- Experts


Choose accordingly. Once selected you will get your list of countries, Each
country will give you different land to start out with. This means, some
countries are easier than others. Here is a brief list of the countries.

Countries                 Difficulty
---------                 ----------

* The Almohads            * Easy
* The Byzantines          * Easy
* The Danes               * Hard
* The Egyptians           * Easy
* The English             * Medium
* The French              * Medium
* The Germans             * Medium
* The Italians            * Medium
* The Polish              * Hard
* The Spanish             * Easy
* The Russians            * Easy
* The Turkish             * Medium

Now pick the country that best suites you. My personal favorite are the
Spanish. But all are fun and challenging. Once you pick your country, click
START CAMPAIGN on the bottom of the screen. You are now about to enter the
world of Medieval War. It is brutal with many strategies.

*Important Note*

I am going to cover the actual strategy of Single Player on the walkthrough.
It would be far too long to explain it in this mini section. Visit the Strategy
Walkthrough for more information.
*End Note*

The basic purpose of playing Campaign mode is to take over the world by
attacking certain provinces. You can play the battles or simulate them. Again,
check the strategy guide for more information.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
4.3 Multiplayer
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

This is the online aspect of the game. You must be connected to the internet
in some way to get access to multiplayer. Personally, I do not think that this
is the greatest part to play. I would really only recommend people who are highly
experienced to play online. I have tried it a few times but never really had the
time nor interest to play much more. I don't have much else to say on this part of
the game. On some future update I will get and give some tips for online play.
Thanks for your patience.



%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
4.4 Campaign Tutorial
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

This is simply designed for a small bit of practice before entering the
Campaign stage. It really is pretty useful if you want to get used to the
format of the game. They will pick a random country for you and will tell
you to do certain objectives such as attack some place or defend some place.
In my case, I had to defend from the British. I have three provinces and am to
prevent them from being taken over by the northern British. In the tutorial you
will experience clicking on armies to find out the number or units at a certain
camp. Also to train a unit you are to go to a castle (you should have one to
start) and click on it. In the left corner click on the train unit button. This
will allow you to buy men for money. You will also me able to hire mercenaries
from other countries to fight for you. It will also provide you with information
on how to end years and build houses. If you want to continue with information
keep on reading the tutorial. For now let us check the Battle Tutorial very
briefly.


%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
4.5 Battle Tutorial
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Here you practice those battle tactics I was talking about. There are 2
major battles that you can practice on right now. The Sicily Battle and
the Bulgaria Battle. I am going to the Sicily Battle for this part of the
guide. You will be told that knights are a major part of the battle. This
is very true! They have great charge and are the most powerful units in the
game. These particular knights are pretty common but you can obtain much
harder and more powerful knights.

From the start you should send your knights towards the peasants. This will
easily kill the peasants as your knights are much stronger and have a huge
charge force. This is a major advantage you should watch out for when fighting
battles. This is generally an easier battle. Just charge your knights all over
onto their enemy forces. Good luck on finishing them off. Look at your final
statistics if you would like and then go back to the main menu.


%%%%%%%%%%%%%
4.6 Options
%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Here are the real options. They are the more detailed and precise ones. Yes,
I think you understand. Anyway, once you hit the button you will come across
some general options. This is what it should look like.

* Video
* Audio
* Performance
* Controls
* Game


First click on Video. This is where you can change the screen resolution. I
don't see how you would have to change this option but if you really have bad
resolution change the scroll bar. Now go to the Audio button. Here you can mute
the noise and change the volume of the music. Set it to your likings. You can
also set the sound quality to whatever you want. Next go to the Performance button.
This is where you can switch smoke on and off. The main option here is the unit size.
Change it based on how big you want the units to be. Go to Controls. You
can change the mouse speed and camera turning speed. Sometimes it is better
to get a faster camera speed. The next part of the options is Game options. You
can change realistic aspects of the game. This included fatigue and limited
ammunition. Set all of these to your liking and let us get on out of the option part
of this game.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%
4.7 Quit
%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Yes, you have to press this to exit the game. I'm sure you all knew that,
right? Let us go on to the country information.

6.0 FAQ's
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Q: Are Tutorial's helpful?

A: Yes. They display the formal way of playing and will explain in detail
   each step of the game.

Q: Is this worth buying?

A: Let's just put it this way. DON'T rent it. It is extremely long and
   displays excellent replay value. It is one of the best games ever.

Q: Should I make a castle in each province?

A: No. Only build one castle in a general area. This will make it a lot
   easier to make units. You will not have to wait as many years to make
   all those castles for each province.

Q: Are any of the countries easier and/or harder?

A: Yes. I would say that the location and amount of land matters. You don't
   want too much land but you don't want to little either.

Q: What should I say when other countries offer an alley partnership?

A: In the beginning you should always accept the offer. It prevents many
   battles and gives you time to set a well established economy up. At the
   end you can start to decline as you are trying to take over all of the
   provinces.

Q: When should I invade a province?

A: Don't in the beginning. Maybe one or two at most for a little more space
   but keep that as a lower priority. As you start to develop better and more
   skilled armies, start to invade all those smaller provinces. This is the
   smartest strategy.

Q: What is a good country to start out with?

A: I would start with the Spanish or Byzantines. They are probably the
   easiest.

7.0 Tips and Tricks

I don't have a whole lot on this right now. I will update soon with anyone
who gives me tips or tricks. Anyone who does will get credit. Just e-mail me.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Tips
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

1. Alley all requests when given.

2. Make one castle in each certain area.

3. Don't spend so much time on each year. Sometimes you should simulate 2-3
   years at a time.

4. Do not keep bunches of men in each province. This will increase the price
   for each province causing you to loose a lot of money.

5. Build Crusades as soon as you can to get it out of the way of the Pope.

6. Higher your taxes if your loyalty is above 100%

7. Don't waist time as your time is short to rule the world.

8. Sign missionaries as they are sometimes very good and are very cheap. They
   really build up your army to great numbers. They are highly recommended for
   crusades.

9. Do not have a king in a territory that will have a battle since the king
   will always become the general even if he has only 1 command compared to
   another general in the same territory with 9. This can cause you to lose.

10.The amount of men is not always the key but who is in the army. Always
   pay attention to this.

11.Build Inn's to make mercenaries.

12.Make farmland to increase the income for a province. It boosts your Florins.

13. Royal Palaces are something you should concentrate on early. They are your
    first actual GOOD knights.


%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Tricks

1. To prevent yourself from losing, save and load your game whenever necessary.

2. Press P to pause a game during battle time.

8.0 Strategy Walkthrough

Now for the cream of the crop. This is the juice. Call it whatever you want.
Anyway, I am going to play as the SPANISH. You can choose them or any other
country. Just do something similar. All of the strategies are similar. You
will have to resolve some of your countries more complex problems. I would
like to give credit to Daevy11 for the Danes guide. I will write a Spanish
guide. Daevy11, I have tried to contact you but you have never gave a
response. You did not indicate if your document could be shared. If you
want it off this FAQ than please indicate that by e-mail. Thanks.

\\\\/////
|Spanish|
\\\\\////

As I start as the Spanish I have the two provinces Castile and Leon. I would
strongly recommend that you use Castile to create your units. In any other
country take the province with the strongest castle. So you can make
mercenaries, create an Inn on the build button on the lower left corner. This
will take 2 years to make as it says on the screen.

On the lower right hand corner is the button END YEAR. This will obviously
end one year. Once you press it two times your Inn will be finished. Before
pressing it create a group of warriors of your choice. Now hit end year. Take
your people out of your castle by dragging. These are the ones that you just
created. Now, where there are no units you should make that province farmland.
So go to the province and increase the farm production. End the year or make
some more units. Remember, this FAQ is very flexible. You can do more or less
then what I am saying.

Now be patient. Do not attack any countries yet. First go for making men and
creating good food. Around now you will be giving birth to sons and daughters
and will be offered alliances. Accept ALL of the alliances. If you are an ally
of a country you will not be attacked by them. On Castile you should make a watch
tower. This enables you to see the amount of men and info on the surrounding
provinces of the watch towered province. Very useful.

At this time you should continue to accept alliances. Also, keep improving
your farmland. On the province in which you are making men, create a horse breeder.
This is the first step in making knights. Once you get knights, you will be able to
attack more easily. Pretty soon you will notice that your Florins or money will be
going down. To check your balances, go to the bottom left and click on the gold
coins. This will tell you your income and your expenses. If you are losing money
then you should STOP making men. The more men you have the more expenses you have.
Balance these by creating more buildings to earn income. Also, you should be thinking
about upgrading to a higher castle. This will allow you to make more advanced
buildings.

Once you have upgraded more buildings you will notice a large cross on the
training units part. It is a crusade. It will take four years to make but
is very powerful. What you do is take the cross, after four years, and set
it somewhere in the world. Once you set the cross somewhere you will be heading
to destroy that place. The crusade will give you many men to work with. This is
very effective when you want to take over farther away provinces.

For now, concentrate on building horse breeder's. You need knights before
you can start attacking. Just do it over time so that you don't lose all of
your florins. Now get knights and look for rebel provinces first. These are
the most reliable ones to attack. The pope will be mad but who cares? Now get
out there and take over your first province. YEA! We are getting closer to
ruling the world. Still, do not invade any countries. It really will hurt you
early on. Keep making men. It is what you must do, trust me please. Now start
to make a crusade. Wait four years and put it closer to your provinces. It is
wiser because traveling longer distances is harder in case you come across
some battles.

%%%%%%%%%
Crusades
%%%%%%%%%

In general, you will have to wait four years to make a crusade. Now,
set the crusade where you choose and build it up to an enormous army. Keep
adding royal knights. Soon it will be almost invincible. Aahhh! Refreshing
isn't it? Go through the path to the desired crusade spot. Kill all that is in
your path. Most countries will allow you to go by so don't worry so much.
I would recommend that you make as many as you as later in the game the Pope
may be against you disabling you from making Crusades.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Attack the Aergonese
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Ok, now take out the Aerogonese. Do this because the Pope will not be mad if
Catholics are hurt. Mean people, the Pope. So take them out and the Rebels.
The Rebels should be up North. This is where it gets tricky. You MUST stay
allied to the French. But, the Germans, who always send Crusades for the
Pope, will soon try to kill you. But, they first will have to go through
the French. This they cannot do. So your expanding your provinces and keeping
friends with all your previous allies.

+=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=+
*!Warning!*

Do NOT attack the Almohads below you. I had tried this before and they will
easily destroy you. They are not invincible, you just need stronger forces.
+=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=++=-~-=+


Keep upgrading your houses. You should also make Royal Knights every other
year. This helps make your money spread more flexible. Another thing you
should start to look at is the Taxes. Higher your taxes if your loyalty is
ABOVE 100%. If you do it lower, your people will likely rebel against you.
This will cause your civilization to break down, thus you loose. We don't
want that do we?

--Future Goal--

We should try to save up as much men as possible. This is all you should
concentrate on. The actual goal is take over the Almohads. They cause so
much trouble down there! So, start to upgrade to a Keep and etc. This
will some time allow you to make Chivalric Knights. This is your only
hope really. This is where it gets very hard. Try to bear with me. My
first major request, right now, is to SAVE your game. Press escape and
save it. That is, when you, or if you die you can load your game back to
this present position. You need to hope that the French King, which he
probably will, will die. This is crucial so that you can become an ally
with them. Also, as soon as the Pope dies start making Crusades. You can
only make crusades if the Pope likes you, and now he doesn't. For me, the
French King died. Now ally with them. Build strong forces and get prepared
to kill the Almohads below. It is your only chance in gaining control in
the World.

From now until you fight the Almohads the only action that should take
place is allying a proposing a marriage. So I will pick this Guide back
onto attacking the Almohads.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Attack the Almohads
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Gather your prince armies and the Royal Knights. You should have very many
by now. Go for Portugal first as it is certainly the easiest. Don't attack
Camboda until the end. This is their main farm crop land and unit building
land, therefore they will defend that the most. Portugal, for me was an
easy victory. They then backed off onto Camboda. This is where you should
surround them. Get men from all your provinces and attack all at once.
Just make sure you have some men in each province so that they don't retreat
into your unprotected colony. This will be a Victory if you have made
enough men. I am serious. This is not as easy as it seems. You really need
to get a LOT of men. Sooner or later the Almohads will give up or their
King will die. Finally! Now take a small break because the Almos will be
back soon!

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Break Time
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Now you can wait. I would wait until the Pope dies. If it seems to take a
while then forget this. If he dies soon then start to build Crusades. With
these you will be able to finish off the weaker part of the Almohads. If
the Pope is still alive then just the Almohads out with your remaining
army and some additional Knights. You should also try to get A Knight
upgrade so your men will be stronger. Once either the Pope dies or you
decide your army is stronger go to the pickup of the FAQ.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Finish of the Almohads
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Let us finish these tiring fools. From Camboda work your way south.
Send all your men (and use the Pope's Crusades if possible) to each
of the Almohad provinces. This will easily finish them off as they
hardly have any men in any of the provinces. Yea! Take over the south
east of the map all the way to Egypt. Egyptians are very powerful and
should not be dealt with now. I would recommend you take them on at
the end and go for France, England, and Germany. These are your best
options.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Establish a new base
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Right now, to be sure we don't loose, start establishing more of a base
on the south provinces you just conquered. These will provide a great
deal of backup for you form the French and English. We do not want to
go right in and start fighting the French yet. We need to space it out
over a few years and regroup your economy. Start making another province
for making units. This will make it a lot easier to make men faster and
placed quicker in desired places.

I would recommend that you make two Royal Palaces in opposite sides of
your part of the world. This does two things. First of all, you will
be able to make twice as many men as before. Second, you will be able
to move men places in a faster pace.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
French and English duo
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Finally there is something easier. Really, the Spanish are very hard
to fight with in the Early age. Now, we are faced with a much easier
task. The French are probably the easiest to defeat. The English are
harder to defeat but they won't interfere with your war against the
French. This is what makes it a whole lot easier.

Anyway, go collect all your men, as I told you to make, and bring
ALL of them up to the North near the French. Invade the French as
soon as you can. This will be your hardest battle against the French.
I told you, they are not difficult to beat. You will take over Toulouse.
Now quickly move to the right and battle in Provence. Take this over.
Really, I did not lose one battle with the French. Just follow the
blue markings and kill all of the French. After you conquer France take
a short break. Regroup as you did after the Almohads. The British are
your next target and are waiting hungrily to the left of where you
are right now. Make more Royal Knights and bring them into the former
French areas. Get prepared to surround the British colonies.

Now take all the men surrounding the British and take a few out of the
stacks and put them in the province you are currently in. Now put the
remaining units into Aqutaine. Hope for a victory. Most likely, a lot
of Royal Knights will do the trick. If you lose you probably didn't
enough men or you did something wrong in the Walkthrough. Once you
take care of Aqutaine, Normandy, and the Brittany, you will easily
have destroyed the British. Just work your way North and take care of
there lesser populated provinces without any skill. Congrats! You have
destroyed 3 nations already. We are making very nice progress.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Italy the pathetic country
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

This part of the game is the easiest. The Italians are right next to
you on the right. You will have to take your remaining battle troups
and yet again regroup your provinces. This is really a procedure you
should constantly do. Once you build up enough men, go towards the
Italian peninsula. Now this is my favorite! There is no trick involved
with the Italians. Just keep battling it up with them. Honestly, this
is how it will be for pretty much the rest of the game. It isn't very
hard after you get out of the flaw in the beginning. Attack all of the
Italians and take over that peninsula. Good job. Not much work involved.

%%%%%%%%%%%
Here on out
%%%%%%%%%%%

I am getting very tired of saying the same thing. From now on out the
battle sequence and formations are all identical. I will add a bit
more on the FAQ in future updates but most of it is self explanatory.
You can use this FAQ for almost all of the countries for all of the
battles you face. They really are all identical. For now I will
leave you from the Spanish FAQ. Enjoy the ending after completing
the game!





%%%%%%
Danes
%%%%%%


I. General

A. The Danes

The Danes start out very modestly, with just 1 province, Denmark. Denmark is a
solid province, and it is the only landroute to Sweden and Norway besides.
Vikings and Longboats are available to the Danes right from the start, and
alhought eclipsed later on they provide good buildingblocks for your early
military.

B. Weaknesses

Your biggest weakness is the fact you have only 1 province, and a
correspondingly low income and production base. You must reduce these two
problems quickly if you are to have any hope of greatness.
A weakness you will bump into later is your comparative lack of 'projected'
power to the southern regions of the map, where the main plots are played out
by the Papacy and the main catholic factions, Byzantium and the Islamic
empires. You will barely be aware of what is going on there, let alone capable
of intervention. This may result in the development of one or two southern
superpowers, which will have massively superior resources to your northern
empire. You want to keep the south divided if at all possible.
Later on you can attempt to achieve this with your stealth units up to a point.

C. Strenghts

Fortunately you have several strong points to offset your weaknesses. The best
of these is the security of your home province. As long as you play the
diplomatic game smartly (more on that later) you should have no trouble at all
maintaining your rule in Scandinavia at least. This gives you a secure, albeit
small, base of power. You also have no real hereditary enemies and can keep out
of the way of the major powers while still expanding your holdings for a good
while.
Secondly you have one of the better troop types of the early era at your
disposal from the start, Vikings.
Vikings are strong attackers, and can see off peasants with ease. Militia's and
Spearmen are also inferior to them in a direct confrontation. Make the most of
this quickly, because it wont last. As Men-at-arms and Sergeants appear, not to
mention lance-armed cavalry, the vikings will be outclassed.
Lastly, you get a cheap ship to assert your (vital) naval dominance with, the
Longboat. As your empire will be spread across the north part of the map,
having control of the seas is paramount to victory.

D. General Tips

* Use the titles. They increase taxes and happiness, so give titles to any
(loyal) general with good Acumen.
* Sea power is vital. Make sure your fleet is equipped to dominate the seas.
* Use watchtowers, spies etc to check the opposing army before attacking.
* Stealth units can be as vital for expansion as armies, and to keep what you
have.



II. Beginnings

A. Buildings

First thing, build a watchtower in Denmark. After that go for a Shipyard as
quickly as possible, and ignore everything else until you have it.

B. Troops

Build a few Viking units to cover the losses you will suffer in Sweden and
Norway, but dont overdo it. You dont need a defensive force just yet and you
arent exactly rich so save the cash for now.

C. Conquest

Take Sweden right away. It is quite lightly defended, and you should have no
trouble taking it. I'd advise to bring the King along on this one, as his 20
knights will make a big difference in the battle. He is also the most
experienced commander you have and at this point it is worth minimizing
casualties over letting a general develop.
After Sweden is yours, you might be tempted to immediately go for Norway.
Resist the temptation. Norway has a very limited value, and is hard to keep in
line. The expense of the troops stationed there to keep the province in line
will reduce the profit of holding it to almost nothing, and you will inevitably
suffer casualties while taking it.
Just hang on to Denmark and Sweden for now.

D. Diplomacy

Ally with the Holy Roman Empire as a first priority. They hold Saxony, which is
the only province to threaten Denmark from the south. Cement this alliance with
a few marriages if possible.
Poland is also worth allying with, since they are one of the few nations which
can contest your control over the baltic. Best to keep their attention focussed
south and east and not to the north.
An alliance with the Pope is always a good thing for any Catholic faction
(except perhaps the Italians, but thats another guide ;P ).


III. Expanding

A. Buildings

By now you should have your shipyard in Denmark. Follow this up with a Border
Fort first thing, and then a merchant to shore up your meagre income. A Church
will also be needed shortly.
In Sweden build a mine for the same reason, followed by a Fort, Port and
Merchant.

B. Troops

Start churning out Longboats in Denmark, you need at least two. A few extra
units of Vikings wouldnt go amiss either, depending on how many Heirs (and thus
units of knights) you have to support. Watch that income!


C. Conquest

Mop up Norway, and install a strong governor there (preferably one that
increases happiness).
Then use your ships to land an army in Finland. Make sure the army is up to the
task, as there will be no retreat if you fail!
Finland is also a low-income province, but more easily kept under control. It
is also largely Pagan, so move some Bishops there once you have them. With a
bit of luck the Church will grant you money for expanding it's religion, which
you sorely need.
With Finland and Norway your empire now covers 4 provinces, which are not
threatened by any outside powers. This is a good time to halt for a bit and
build your economy. Minimize your expenses by disbanding any units that are too
small or too weak (like peasants) to do any good, and select governors with
strong acumen to rule your provinces.

D. Diplomacy

An alliance with the English will be useful for the next stage, but keep in
mind this will probably mean you end up facing the French sooner or later. Keep
all other alliances.


IIII. An Empire is taking shape

A. Buildings

An inn in Finland will be useful, and Denmark should be developing it's stealth
units at this point. A Tavern and Brothel will need to be built, and you will
ofcourse need to upgrade your Keep to do so.
Sweden should concentrate on a particular type of troop development in the
meantime, I favor Siege weaponry myself as it will come in very useful in
England later on.

B. Troops

More Longboats will be required in this phase, so dont skimp on building them.
You can build boats much cheaper than your rivals, so take advantage of this.
Vikings supported by Royal Knights are still adequate for now, perhaps a few
big blocks of Spearmen to take the cavalry attacks in the not-too-distant
future.

C. Conquest

This is where the real choices start. Latvia might look tempting at the moment,
but it isnt. It is a bitch to keep under control, and would suck far too much
resources out of your empire to succesfully hold. You can prepare the way for
taking Latvia later by sending in a few Bishops, to convert the region to
christianity. This will make it a bit easier to hold on to in the future.
If the polish haven't taken Prussia yet, this is a decent option as long as you
remain allied to the Polish. If you were to go to war with the Polish, it would
probably prove too expensive to hang on to for long.
My favoured path of expansion is to take Scotland however. The Highlanders are
fierce fighters, but so are your Vikings. If well-led, your Vikings should see
off the Scots. Make sure you bring a large force though, because it will be
required to keep the province under control the first few years. Build a Keep
there and it will be your second home province, able to either support the war
at sea or expand into English territory later.
From Scotland, go to Ireland. It should also fall with ease to your troops, and
is not too difficult to keep under control.
The Irish special troops are worth having, so you might want to invest in
facilities there if your economy can take it.

D. Diplomacy

Gauge the war between France and England that is almost certainly raging. If
the French are winning, help the English. If the English are winning help the
French. Your objective is to keep both parties fighting each other and not you,
so use covert means where possible, such as using spies to forment rebellion
and assassins to kill strong generals.
Also send some spies south to check on the Iberian situation; make sure the
Almohads arent steamrollering into europe, if they are use the same methods as
mentioned above.
A few good-old Viking raids to destroy infrastructure can be useful as well if
your navy will strech that far. You will probably need to write off whatever
units you send though, so dont send any heirs or exceptional generals.
Mercenaries are ideal here.


IIIII. Danelaw

A. Buildings

Continue building facilities that will give you access to more advanced units.
Cavalry will be needed to expand your territories, as will Siege weaponry.
A monastery will give you yet another useful Stealth unit to wage your covert
wars in the south, and upgraded Merchants will fund your empire nicely.

B. Troops

You will need strong regiments by now, your Vikings are nearing the ned of
their usefullness. Cavalry units supplemented by Irish specialist units and
some Siege artillery work well. Crossbowmen are excellent on defense, and your
Vikings can still be usefull running Provinces if they have good Generals
leading them (they should by now).
Equally the trusty longboats should be getting support from more advanced ships
by now, or you risk losing naval superiority, and by extension the game.

C. Conquest

Latvia should be ripe for the taking by now, so take it. Make sure the loyalty
of the population is sufficient, then take Lithuania and, if you feel
confident, Novgorod.
In the west you might expand to Northumbria if at war with whatever power holds
it at that time (English or French), and Friesland is also ripe for the taking.
Be wary of Flanders though, as it is the gateway to England through Wessex and
will be sure to attract more attention than you would like.
If you feel adventurous Aquitane is also not an impossibility.

D. Diplomacy

Keep up the diplomatic course you were sailing before, but make sure you stay
allied to the Holy Roman Empire, either French or English, and probably the
Polish. And as always the Papacy is a good friend to have.

Thank you Daevy11.

Congrats when you finally beat the game! Watch the glorious ending!

Farmland Management
-------------------

The amortization period is the time needed to "pay back" something one has
invested in. In terms of MTW, it is the time needed to recover the cost of
upgrading a farm. It's a mental handle on how profitable a farm is. Use these
tables to decide whether they're worth upgrading.

Example: A province currently has a farm at the Improved 20% level, which
has revenue of 119 florins. The game shows you that the 40% level will have
a revenue of 139 florins, so you will be making 20 extra florin a year with
the 40% upgrade. Since it costs 1000 florin to make the 40% upgrade, it will
be amortized (paid off) in 50 years (1000/20) and everything past that is
profit.

The "New level of revenue" table below should be compared against the revenue
of the NEW upgrade to be built (on the Build popup), not against the revenue
of the existing farm (which would be a different table). "Am Yrs" is the
Amortization Years.

          Level & Cost
          ------------

          20%    40%    60%    80%
          600   1000   1500   2500
          ---   ----   ----   ----

 Am Yrs  NEW level of revenue needs to be:
 ------  ---------------------------------
    10    374    694   1181   2286
    25    150    278    472    915
    40     94    174    295    572
    50     75    139    236    457
    60     62    116    197    381
    75     50     93    157    305
   100     37     69    118    229

         Revenue Difference needs to be:
         -------------------------------
    10    60.0   100.0   150.0   250.0
    25    24.0    40.0    60.0   100.0
    40    15.0    25.0    37.5    62.5
    50    12.0    20.0    30.0    50.0
    60    10.0    16.7    25.0    41.7
    75     8.0    13.3    20.0    33.3
   100     6.0    10.0    15.0    25.0



It's hard to keep all the above numbers in your head, and I noticed that
if one does a little rounding, a few Amortization Years will have numbers
that are a lot easier to remember. So here it is... you might start by
memorizing one line as a benchmark, then the others after you've learned
it (and/or your game has progressed to where a different row is more
relevant):

Rounded Numbers --

          Level & Cost
          ------------

          20%    40%    60%    80%
          600   1000   1500   2500
          ---   ----   ----   ----

 Am Yrs  NEW level of revenue needs to be:
 ------  ---------------------------------
    25    150    300    450    900
    40    100    200    300    600
    75     50    100    150    300

Note how 40% and 60% are 2 and 3 times the 20% value, and the 80% value
is 2 times the 60% value. Also, the 40-Year row is 2x, and the 25-Year
Row is 3x, the revenue of the 75-Year row.
