Welcome to Lord of Ultima! (Tutorial)

You are chosen to rule over the land of Caledonia. Show your skill and unite our fractured land. I have been asked to aid you where I can.

First, let us view your mighty dominion. Click and hold your left mouse button while on the map to move around. You can also use the arrow keys to do this.

The Town Hall is located in the centre of your city. Your city is restricted by a wall. Your key resources, wood, stone and iron can be found in and around your city.

Buildings always need wood, this is gathered by woodcutters located at the building Woodcutter’s Hut. Left-click on a building site directly beside some woods, either horizontal, vertical or diagonal to it.

On the left you can see all the buildings currently available to you. Select the Woodcutter’s Hut.

This opens an overview of the selected building. Construct your Woodcutter’s Hut by pressing the Build button. Behold, as others do your bidding.

Level 1 buildings take little time to create. Notice the wood you produce per hour has now increased.
Building a level 1 woodcutter only takes a few seconds. Once it is finished you will notice the wood production per hour has increased.
You’ve constructed your first building! As reward for your efforts, I gift you 50 wood from my personal stores. (Reward: 50 wood)

You can normally construct multiple buildings of the same type. Build another two Woodcutter’s Huts.
Good! A ruler can never have enough wood. Please accept my gift of 100 wood. (Reward: 100 wood)

Build a Cottage beside a Woodcutter’s Hut. The manpower supplied by the Cottage increases the overall construction speed and productivity of nearby buildings such as Woodcutter’s Huts.

The city information panel now shows construction speed has incresed 4% due to your humble new Cottage.
Well done! Permit me to bestow upon you further reward of 150 wood. (Reward: 150 wood)

Warehouse increases storage capacity for all four resources. Order one constructed anywhere that takes your fancy.
Behold! Storage capacity for all resources has increased by 2000. The resource tooltips also display your current storage capacity.
Excellent! Having sufficient storage prevents overproduction and wasted resources. (Reward: 200 wood)

Your Town Hall level determines how many buildings can be build in a city. Select the Town Hall and press the Upgrade to Level 2 button.
On the left of the screen, your Resource Bar shows how many buildings can still be built.

Next, you should build a Quarry. Situate your Quarry beside stone formations, the more the better.

Upgrade your Town Hall to Level 3. This will unlock more building plans.
As you can see this takes more time than before, as shown by the progress bar. The more level advanced buildings are, the more time it takes to upgrade them.

To view your City Information section close the left window.
Build ordes are stored in a queue displayed in the City Information section.
You can cancel an order or change construction priorities in the queue. If you cancel or postpone your current build order in progress, any time that has been already spent on it will be lost.

Next we will build a Farm. It should be surrounded with grassland and, preferably, a lake.
Soon you will need the Farm to supply your troops with food.
Each empty bordering field increases its productivity. This can be further increased by placing it beside a lake.
Excellent! You are now producing food. A reward of 100 grain has been deposited into your stores. (Reward: 100 food)

Next we need to build a City Guard House. This building enables you to recruit the most basic military unit, the City Guard. city Guards defend your cities from siege attacks.
Well done! You can now recruit your first City Guards. As reward I gift you 400 wood. (Reward: 400 wood)

City Guards can only be used to defend a city and are not counted as part of your army. Their recruitment is only limited by their food consumption.
To view the Recruitment Window press the Recruitment button on the left. Gray units are not yet recruitable. Use the clickable up arrow next to the input field or type 3 into the input field to begin recruiting 3 City Guards.
Each unit consumes food. Your production figures will always reflect the demand placed on food by units you have recruited.
This helps you ensure your people are producing enough now and in the future. If you don’t produce enough food and your reserves become exhausted, troops will start to die.
Well done! To celebrate the birth of your army, accept this reward of 300 stone. (Reward: 300 stone)

To aid the City Guards, now build a Defensive Tower. These can only be built on fortified sections of your city wall.

Now switch to Region View by clicking the Region button. Notice your city marked by a flag. Also, note the other cities nearby.
In the shattered world of Ultima many strive for power as you do. ome will prove to be friend, others will prove to be foe.
You can choose the path of peace and focus on your economy, or you can embrace the conqueror’s role and build a Castle. While this would allow you to plunder and conquer enemy cities, your holdings will also be open to attack.
To conquer a city, you must successfully lay siege to it. At least one Baron must be part of the siege. He will take command of the city once his claim to power reaches 100%.
Dark forces roam our lands. Dungeons filled with evil creatures, treasure and valuable resources can be found, should you seek them. Such places could prove of value.

As in the City View you can move around by holding down your left mouse button and moving the mouse. You can also use the arrow keys. Clicking on the eye icon beside your city name will center the screen on your city.
Look around. To view further information click on the landscape or on foreign cities. To get back to the City View click on city.
Wonderful! You have learned to handle the basic functionalities in your city and this land. Now try to find new friends, forge strong alliances and finally become the new Lord of Ultima. May fortune smile upon your efforts, for our young land cries out for healing! (Reward: 1000 wood / 500 stone / 200 food)
