________________________________________________________________________

Experience all the conflict, intrigue, greed and power as you create the
most feared celebrated civilization in the history. Wedge war on a grand
scale with this highly anticipated add-on pack that extends Age of
Empires into a new era of world domination.

The Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome is the addition to the mostly
anticipated strategy game Ages of Empires. The new series have consists
of new technologies such as Logistics and Medicine. The Age of Empires
Expansion requires you have to have the older version of Age of Empires.
Well, here is the system requirements before you considered to buy the
expansion pack of AOE.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
HARDWARE AND SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
------------------------------------------------------------------------

o   Multimedia PC with Pentium 90 or higher processor (Pentium 120 for
   Gigantic Maps)
o   Microsoft Windows 95 or later, or Microsoft Windows NT Workstation
   4.0 with Service Pack 3 or later.
o   Microsoft Age of Empires 1.0 or later.
o   16 megabytes (MB) of RAM for Windows 95 or later. 24 MB for
   Windows NT [and for Windows 95 or later for an 8-player multiplayer
   game.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
CHANGES FROM THE PREVIOUS VERSION
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Since that it is an expansion from the previous version of AOE, we will
always expect changes. Here is a list of changes:

o    Stone Throwers, Catapults and Heavy Catapults now received a
    limited predictive firing benefit from Ballistics, based on the
    target unit's speed. All slow units in range are hit, some medium
    units are hit and all fast units are missed.
o    Persian civilization no longer has the farming penalty
o    Some random maps contains cliffs.
o    Allied Town Centers are visible when you start an allied game.

    you can't build Fire Galleys
o    In multiplayer games, there is now an in-game option to change the
    population limit using the Game Settings
o    Chat is automatically set to Allies Only in an allied multiplayer
    game.

Well that's all let's proceed to the units.

2.     L I S T    O F    U N I T S
========================================================================

Units are the key in playing Age of Empires. Age of Empires has an
innovative design of troops such as action of the troops. The list of
the units can be found from your game manual. But I have also added the
stats of special units such as animals, trees and berry bushes and the
elite special troops!

|   ** LIST OF GROUPINGS **   |   For the first time, I have added the
|-----------------------------|   bar codes [which I am going to call

[2 - 1 ]   MISCELLANEOUS
________________________________________________________________________

In the instruction booklet, there is no groups being assign to
Villagers. Priest is considered as a military unit. I have try to
figure a suitable group for them and decide to place them under the
Miscellaneous Group. These units are very important as they could does
something which other units can't do. For example, the villagers can
gather materials such as Food, Wood, Stone and Gold [food is an
exception whereby you could have fishing boats to do so]. The Priests
are very important as they could heal hit points of units, thus saves
you resources from making more units.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 1 - 1] VILLAGERS
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Stone                                              
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center.                                  
Cost:           50 food                                            
Hit points:     25                                                  
Attack:         3                                                  
Armor:                                                            
Range:                                                            
Speed:          Medium                                              
Create at:      Town Center                                        

NOTES:
Villagers can be assigned different tasks (builder, farmer, fisherman,
forager, gold miner, hunter, repairman, stone miner). Hunters and
villagers used in combat have increased attack strength.Researching
Stone Mining increases stone mining efficiency. Siegecraft increases
stone mining efficiency and allows villagers to destroy walls and
buildings. Gold Mining increases gold mining efficiency. The Wheel
increases speed. Jihad increases combat strength.

TIPS:
- Villagers are very important as they possess great importance in
 gathering materials such as food, wood, stone and gold. That's your
 criteria in have the villagers as the main population.
- Assign them in 4 main groups:
 <> WoodCutter - for gathering wood for your population.
 <> Hunter/Forager/Fisherman - for gathering food for your population
 <> Stone Miner - for gathering stone for your population
 <> Gold Miner - for gathering gold for your population.
- Build technology buildings such as Granary and the Storage Pit near
 sources (forests, berry bushes, fishing sites, stone mines and gold
 mines) to reduce distance from the sites.
 Storage Pit could store:
 -> Wood, Gold, Stone, Food [from fishing and hunting]
 Granary
 -> Food [from farming and berry bushes]
- Hunting Tips:
 When hunting, have about two villagers to hunt a gazelle as it
 will take one shot for it to go down. As you know you must attack
 the hit point of the gazelle before you can start gathering food
 from it. Try rear the gazelle near the storage site [Storage Pit or
 your Town Center], to do this, just simply approaches them. You can
 get up to 150 food from a gazelle. Refer to Gaia unit list for the
 stats of the gazelle. Lions and crocodiles are rather strong [has a
 total hit points of 20] but nab you only a mere 100 food. Elephants
 are much better have more hit points and have a huge amount of food
 about 300 food! Assign three more hunters to attack the Elephant.
 Stock at: Town Center, Storage Pit [it depends which is closer]. The
 hunter has four attack points
 How to hunt? please refer to the CAMPAIGN section.
- Fishing Tips:
 When fishing, have about three villagers and pick a shallow site [
 normally you will find Shore fish, which will nabs 250 food and has
 no hit points.] Fisherman has three atatck points. Villagers can
 cross shallow waters, you will see partially submerged pebbles on the
 ground. (crocodiles roam there too..). To do fishing in the seas,
 have villagers building the Dock and create more fishing boats. Shore
 fish is being collected at the faster rate compared to berry bushes.
 Stock at: Town Center, Storage Pit. How to fish, refer to CAMPAIGN
 section for more details.
- Foraging Tips:
 When foraging, have three villagers and pick a berry bush to forage.
 [It will be better not to have to many villager forage at a single
 berry bush as it's kinda small ^_^;] Build a Granary near the
 foraging site. [this will cut down the distance for the villagers
 to bring to food to the Granary] Note that the food gather is
 really slow.
- Farming Tips
 I quite dislike this idea.. The gathering of food is slow and you have
 to waste time in building a farm. I myself think that it will better
 to have fishing boats out to sea. However farms are rather important
 as the natural food resources are being used up eventually. So I would
 suggest that you build farms late in the game.
- Cutting Trees Tips
 When chopping wood, have aleast 10 villagers for a forest. Trees
 found in the forest can give you 40 wood, whereas trees found standing
 alone will gives you 75 wood. Building a Storage Pit near the forests
 for easy traffic. Every tree has a total hit points of 25. It will
 take more than 8 hits for a tree to go down, before you can start to
 gather wood. Assign 4 villagers to a tree and you could gather wood
 at the fastest speed. Woodcutters has three attack points.
- Mining Tips
 When mining for stone or gold, I would recommend you to have a group
 of miners for each resources which are rather important late in the
 game. Stone could allows you to build defensive buildings such as
 Watch Towers and Walls and Gold will allows you to research
 technology. Just keep on replenishing your supplies.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 1 - 2]     PRIESTS
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Bronze                                              
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Granary, build Market, build
               Temple.                                      
Cost:           125 gold                                            
Hit points:     25                                                  
Attack:                                                          
Armor:                                                            
Range:          10                                                  
Speed:          Slow                                                
Train at:       Temple                                              

NOTES:
A Priest heals friendly and allied units and converts enemy units. If
your diplomacy is set to Neutral or Enemy, your military units will
attack Priests from other civilizations. Researching Astrology allows
faster conversions. Mysticism increases hit points. Polytheism
increases speed. Fanaticism speeds Priest rejuvenation after
conversion. Monotheism allows conversion of enemy Priests and buildings.
Afterlife increases range.

TIPS:
- Priests generally are good units in combat and healing. Priest needs
 to rejuvenate after a conversion is made. Have a Priest to convert a
 new. Converting a unit could also allows you to exceed the population
 limit. If the Priest has successfully finished a conversion, he could
 still heal lost hit points.
- Never ever tried to convert units such as Chariots, Scythe Chariots,
 Boats and definately not the Chariot Archers. These are rather hard
 to convert. Tried to convert a Watch Tower and turns the enemies'
 defense to your attack.
- A Priest can't heal oneself. Have them work in groups.

[ 2 - 2 ]   INFANTRY UNITS
________________________________________________________________________

I quite like Infantry units as the combat is realistic where you will
hear the sounds of pain (when the warriors are hit). The infantry units
are best when comes to hand-to-hand combat and are quite cheap compared
to cavalry units. Early infantry units like Clubman are quite useless
except for the increased of hit points, but let's says if a villager has
an one-to-one combat, whom will win? Before you can start to building
military-technology buildings such as Archery Range, Stable, Academy,
and Seige Workshop, you must build the basic building Barracks. There
is now a new technology [in the expansion series, the Logistics] which
makes creating infantry units are more favourable compared to Cavalry
units. However they are quite weak against Cavalries [except the
Slinger, as they will withstand more damage compared to other units
which is +5 damage!]. All except for the Slinger are short-range [i.e.
that's means that they can't attack when far from an enemy]. Mostly
upgrades for infantry units can be found from the Storage Pit. Have
them in the frontline (except for the Slinger) while the Archers at the
back.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 2 - 1]   Clubman
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Stone
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Barracks.
Cost:           50 food
Hit points:     40
Attack:         3
Armor:          
Range:          
Speed:          Medium
Train at:       Barracks

NOTES:
The Clubman is the weakest of the infantry units. The Clubman can be
upgraded to the Axeman. Other infantry units include the Short
Swordsman, Broad Swordsman, Long Swordsman, and Legion.Researching
Toolworking, Metalworking, and Metallurgy increases attack strength.
Leather Armor, Scale Armor, and Chain Mail increase armor. The Bronze
Shield and Iron Shield increase piercing armor.

TIPS:
- This units are quite weak as they possess the same attack strength
 as the villagers! However their high hit points and the upgrades
 could make them a more worthable uint when comes to hand-to-hand
 combats when compared to the villagers. Have a one or two to guard
 your base when early part in the game.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 2 - 2]   Axeman
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Tool
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Barracks, upgrade to Battle Axe.
Upgrade cost:   100 food
Cost:           50 food
Hit points:     50
Attack:         5
Armor:          
Range:          
Speed:          Medium
Upgrade of:     Clubman
Train at:       Barracks

NOTES:
The Axeman has more hit points and attack strength than the Clubman.
The Axeman cannot be upgraded. However, you can research the Short
Swordsman, which is stronger than the Axeman.Researching Toolworking,
Metalworking, and Metallurgy increases attack strength. Leather Armor,
Scale Armor, and Chain Mail increase armor. The Bronze Shield and Iron
Shield increase piercing armor.

TIPS:
- A better unit compared to the Clubman. This unit has an upgrade of
 +10 hit points and +2 attack power. This unit is very destructable
 when working in groups [when working adjacent with Archers Group]

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 2 - 3]   Slinger                                          (NEW)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Tool
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Barracks
Cost:           40 food, 10 stone
Hit Points:     25
Attack:         2
Armor:          -
Range:          4
Speed:          Medium
Special:        +2 attack vs. archers, +2 armor vs. missile weapons,
               Ballista, Helepolis; increased attack vs. walls and
               towers.
Train at:       Barracks

NOTES:
The Slinger is an infantry unit used to defend against early archer
and Watch Tower attacks. Bronze Shield, Iron Shield, and Tower Shield
increases piercing armor. Alchemy increases attack strength. Stone
Mining and Seigecraft increase attack strength and range. Note that
Slingers does not recieve armor upgrades from Leather Armor, Scale
Armor and Chain Mail.

TIPS:
- Never have infantry units attack the Cavalry Group, but an exception
 is this unit. Have this unit work with the Archers Group. The
 Slinger has an exceptable range of 4. Assign these guys behind the
 walls. [Walls provide protection against infantry and cavalry attacks]
 The Slinger can does +2 damage to Archers, kept this to your
 advantage. However the Slinger has a mere 25 hit points which I will
 recommend a Archer than this unit.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 2 - 4]   Short Swordsman
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Bronze
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Barracks, research Short Sword.
Research cost:  120 food, 50 gold
Cost:           35 food, 15 gold
Hit points:     60
Attack:         7
Armor:          1
Range:          
Speed:          Medium
Train at:       Barracks

NOTES:
The Short Swordsman is not an upgrade of the Axeman. It is a separate
unit with more hit points, attack strength, and armor than the Axeman.
The Short Swordsman can be upgraded to the Broad Swordsman.Researching
Toolworking, Metalworking, and Metallurgy increases attack strength.
Leather Armor, Scale Armor, and Chain Mail increase armor. The Bronze
Shield and Iron Shield increase piercing armor.

TIPS:
- The begining infantry unit that uses swords as its main weapon. This
 unit is quite good and cheap [but it requires you to mine gold]. A
 decent attacking power of seven, make this unit destructive when comes
 to one-on-one combat. Never assign this unit against a Cavalry unit.
 Have them work it groups.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 2 - 5]   Broad Swordsman
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Bronze
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Barracks, research Short Sword,
               upgrade to Broad Sword.
Upgrade cost:   140 food, 50 gold
Cost:           35 food, 15 gold
Hit points:     70
Attack:         9
Armor:          1
Range:          
Speed:          Medium
Upgrade of:     Short Swordsman
Train at:       Barracks

NOTES:
The Broad Swordsman has more hit points, attack strength, and armor
than the Short Swordsman. The Broad Swordsman can be upgraded to the
Long Swordsman.Researching Toolworking, Metalworking, and Metallurgy
increases attack strength. Leather Armor, Scale Armor, and Chain Mail
increase armor. The Bronze Shield and Iron Shield increase piercing
armor.

TIPS:
- Same cost of the Short Swordsman, but these units can be more
 damaging, it have reached the Legion status. 9 attack points is
 considered rather damaging and it is still upgradable!

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 2 - 6]   Long Swordsman
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Iron
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Barracks, research Short Sword,
               upgrade to Broad Sword, upgrade to Long Sword.
Upgrade cost:   160 food, 50 gold
Cost:           35 food, 15 gold
Hit points:     80
Attack:         11
Armor:          2
Range:          
Speed:          Medium
Upgrade of:     Broad Swordsman
Train at:       Barracks

NOTES:
The Long Swordsman has more hit points, attack strength, and armor than
the Broad Swordsman. The Long Swordsman can be upgraded to the Legion.
Researching Toolworking, Metalworking, and Metallurgy increases attack
strength. Leather Armor, Scale Armor, and Chain Mail increase armor.
The Bronze Shield and Iron Shield increase piercing armor.

TIPS:
- This unit is also quite good, a better Short Swordsman. Great if you
 have them in groups and you will see them doing their worst.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 2 - 7]   Legion
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Iron
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Barracks, research Short Sword,
               upgrade to Broad Sword, upgrade to Long Sword, research
               Fanaticism, upgrade to Legion.
Upgrade cost:   1400 food, 600 gold
Cost:           35 food, 15 gold
Hit points:     160
Attack:         13
Armor:          2
Range:          
Speed:          Medium
Upgrade of:     Long Swordsman
Train at:       Barracks

NOTES:
The Legion is the ultimate infantry unit. The Legion has many more hit
points and more attack strength than the Long Swordsman. You must
research Fanaticism before you can upgrade to Legion.Researching
Toolworking, Metalworking, and Metallurgy increases attack strength.
Leather Armor, Scale Armor, and Chain Mail increase armor. The Bronze
Shield and Iron Shield increase piercing armor.

TIPS:
- The research may be a bit costly, but it definately worth it. You can
 train tons of it. The new technology, Logistics have made this unit
 a better one! You can train about 100 Legions if your population
 limit is 50!

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 2 - 8]   Hoplite
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Bronze
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Barracks, build Stable, build
               Academy.
Cost:           60 food, 40 gold
Hit points:     120
Attack:         17
Armor:          5
Range:          
Speed:          Slow
Train at:       Academy

NOTES:
The Hoplite is the weakest of the elite infantry units. Upgrades include
the Phalanx and Centurion. Researching Toolworking, Metalworking, and
Metallurgy increases attack strength. Leather Armor, Scale Armor, and
Chain Mail increase armor. The Bronze Shield and Iron Shield increase
piercing armor. Aristocracy increases speed.

TIPS:
- The unit has a very high attacking power, but it was slow. Have the
 Archers do the back firing while you watches these units approaching
 them. -Very damaging- with being arranged in groups.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2 - 2 - 9]   Phalanx
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Age:            Iron
Prerequisites:  Build Town Center, build Barracks, build Stable, build
               Academy, upgrade to Phalanx.
Upgrade cost:   300 food, 100 gold
Cost:           60 food, 40 gold
Hit points:     120
Attack:         20
Armor:          7
Range:          
Speed:          Slow
Upgrade of:     Hoplite
Train at:       Academy

NOTES:
The Phalanx has more attack strength and armor than the Hoplite. The
Phalanx can be upgraded to the Centurion.Researching Toolworking,
Metalworking, and Metallurgy increases attack strength. Leather Armor,
Scale Armor, and Chain Mail increase armor. The Bronze Shield and Iron
Shield increase piercing armor. Aristocracy increases speed.

TIPS:

TIPS:
- The ultimate destructive weapon of all army. It can reduce damages
 with its starting 8 armor, thus costing the villagers does no damage.
 These units can just remove any force from the face of the earth.
 But it's slow speed, takes you to assign archers to do firing while
 this unit is approaching its target..

[2 - 3]     ARCHER UNITS
________________________________________________________________________

Archers are good units, in my own opinion. They work like the Centaurs
in Brigandine. They can attack enemies even they are at a far distance
from the enemy. Their speed are pretty average, but they can does
damage without getting hurt, thus consuming more hit points. Have them
at the backyard, firing arrows at the foe and watch the infantry troops
approaching them for a fight. As you are further in the game, you get
better units such as Horse Archers, which works like a sniper....

Here you will find a complete list of technologies found in the game. I
have also included my comments and added new technologies. I have group
them according the research center. Technologies that can be found from
the Storage Pit will be grouped under the group "Technologies from the
Storage Pit".

________________________________________________________________________

[3 - 1]   TECHNOLOGIES FROM THE STORAGE PIT
________________________________________________________________________
Basically, all these technologies allows you to upgrade the attack
points and armor points for the military group: infantry, cavalry and
Archers. Certain technologies are required to allow you to get the final
units such as the Cataphract, Armored Elephant and Heavy Horse Archer.
These technologies are cheap and reaching from 100 food to the maximum
of 250 food. Certain technologies required gold which ranges from 50
gold to 400 gold. These technologies are extremely important when comes
to combat.

Research at:    Storage Pit

NOTES:
- This technology is vital as it can get you better technologies as
 you advance through the next age. This technologies allows units such
 as infantry units and Cavalry units [except for the War Elephant and
 Armored Elephnat units]. This technology allows these units to
 inflicit +2 damage. This technology will give the edge in combat.
 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 After you have researched Toolworking, the icon disappeared and will
 be replaced by Metalworking. This technology actually nabs you another
 +2 attack for hand-to-hand units. Added the effect of Toolworking,
 this nabs a total +4 attack points for any infantry units and cavalry
 units (except for War Elephant and Armored Elephant]

------------------------------------------------------------------------

|---- [6-1-2]  Foraging                7,000 BC
|---- [6-1-3]  Discoveries             6,500 BC
|---- [6-1-4]  Dawn of a New Age       6,000 BC


[6-1-1]
NAME OF SCENARIO:  Hunting  8,000 BC
OBJECTIVE:         Create 7 villagers.
STARTING:          50 Wood, 30 Food, 0 Gold, 0 Quarry
UNITS:             1x Town Center, 1x Villager.

EXPLORING
As you begin the game, the map is being surround by a black fog,
similar to strategy games like Command and Conquer. It is better to
explore the map/terrain as you will be able to find sufficient space
for building structures. However if your villager returns back to the
Town Center. The area will be surrounded by the "fog of war". You will
not be able to see enemy structures as they are being covered by the
fog.

HUNTING
Around that island, you will find herds of gazelles which will provide
the main source of food for your villagers. You need 50 Food to create
a villager. Just simply click a villager. Next right-click the gazelle
which you wished to hunt. It will takes 2 hit for the gazelle to go
down. The villager will becomes a hunter with attacking power +1. The
villager will start to hunt the animal, gathers food adn deposit it at
the Town Center, where it is added to the stockpile [the villager will
collect until 10 Food and approached the Town Center, depositing it
there]. To create a villager, just simply select the Town Center and
choose to create a Villager [that requires time...]

BUILDING HOUSES
As the maximum amount of villagers that the Town Center could hold is
4 villagers/units, so it will be essential to build a House. Each
House costs 30 Wood. Actually, there is no need for you to cut down
trees as there is already enough Wood in your stockpile for building a
House. To get more Wood. Simply click the villager. Next right-click
the tree that you want to cut down [trees at the forests have lesser
Wood, so it is advisble for you cut down trees that stands on its own.]
To build a house, simply click a villager. Next pick "Build" and select
the House Icon on the next toolbar.

TIPS:
- You must hunt the gazelles to increase your stockpile of food so that
 you can creat new villagers. As your population grows, you must build
 new houses before you can create new villagers.
- Villagers can move around gazelles and herd them closer to the Town
 Center before hunting them. This decreases the distance the villagers
 must carry the meat to the Town Center, where it is added to your
 stockpile.
- Food from hunting deteriorates overtime. so it is most efficient to
 assign more than one villager to gather the meat from the kill.
- Beware from alligators - they tend to eat away villagers whom wonders
 near the shores Alligators can be hunted and provide food like the
 gazelle.

STRATEGY
First of all, have that villager build a House. Next walk south and move
towards the gazelle, the gazelle will run away.... Lure it near the Town
Center before you start to kill it. It will take two hits before you can
kill the gazelle. Note that this villager can't died as it will be
Game Over if that happened. Next let's paid some attention to your
toolbar found at the upper section of the screen. As you sees the
villager brought the food to the Town Center, the Food stockpile will
increase by 10. Wait for the Food stockpile reach 50, and start to
create a villager. Once your second villager is being created, have him
hunt the same gazelle  [the more the merrier and meat can be taken from
it at a faster rate.] Next you must kill the threat, the alligator found
at the western side of the island. It will take 5 hits to go down. Now
you can concentrate on building up your stockpile. Create a villager
once you have reached 50 in your food stockpile. Do this until you have
seven villagers and you will complete the scenario!

[6-1-2]
NAME OF SCENARIO: Foraging  7,000 BC
OBJECTIVE:        Build 1x Storage Pit, 1x Granary, 1x Dock
STARTING:         0 Wood, 0 Food, 0 Gold, Quarry
UNITS:            3x Villagers, 1x Town Center

GATHERING WOOD
Before you can build anything, you required some wood in your stockpile.
Just simply select a villager with the left click. Next right-click the
tree [Palm, Tree Forest] which you want that villager to chop it down
for food. Tree Forests has lesser wood compared to trees that stands on
its own.

FORAGING FOR FOOD
As food is required for creating a villager, it is essential to forage
as there are only berry bushes found on that deserted island. Just
simply click a villager whom you have wished to sent for foraging. Next
right-click the berry bush which you wants to forage from. Foraging is
rather slow as the strength of a Forager is weaker than the strength of
a Hunter. That's the downside...however Berry Bushes last for a longer
time compared to meat of the gazelles, elephants, lions and alligators
as it does not deteriote.

CONSTRUCTING BUILDINGS
To construct a building, you need materials such as wood [for the time
being..] Make sure that you have sufficient supplies in your stockpile.
If not, chop down more trees for wood. Just simply click a villager.
Next click "Build" and choose the building which you have wished to
construct. Next you will be given the transulcent "shape" of building.
Just click it on the ground where you wished to build. Note that
buildings can be build too far from the Town Center or your villagers.
You can't overlapped buildings as the space has already been used for
another building. So take note.

TIPS:
- You must forage for food and chop wood to build houses in order to
 support new villagers. You cna then put the new villagers to work on
 chopping wood for building other buildings [Storage Pit, Granary and
 Dock]
- Forage sites are plentiful across the rivers which you can cross the
 shallow waters [there are pebbles partially submerged.]
- Villagers automatically deposit food from foraging yo the Town Center
 or the Granary, whichever is closer. Building a Granary near a forage
 site will reduce the distance that villager has to carry to a place
 where the food will be stocked.
- Villagers will automatically deposit wood at the Town Center or the
 Storage Pit whichever is closer. Building a Storage Pit closer to
 Tree Forests is a good idea.

STRATEGY
First of all, you need to get sufficient manpower so that you can
complete the scenario at a faster rate. Forage some of the berry
bushes located on the southeast of the Town Center. Do this until you
have about 150 Food in your stockpile. Take note of the crocodile
located at the seaside. Kill it. Gather sufficient wood from the Palm
Trees about 150 Wood. Build a house and create 2 new villagers. Build a
storage pit and assign some villagers to chop down wood from the Tree
Forest at the northwest from the Town Center. Have the remainding
villagers in getting food. After getting sufficient wood, build a Dock
at the edge of the seaside [Docks can be build entirely on land ^_^;]
Gather more wood. Next you need to build the granary and you will
complete the scenario once you have finished it! Congratulations!

NAME OF SCENARIO: Discoveries   6,500 BC
OBJECTIVE:        Find the 5 Discoveries, before the Libryans find them.
STARTING:         15 Wood, 90 Food, 0 Gold, 0 Stone
UNITS:            1x Town Center, 1x Villager
ENEMIES:          1x Town Center, 1x Scout

GROUPING VILLAGERS
Finding getting all villagers to one spot very tiring. There is an
easier way, that's to group them into teams. To group a team, first
hold the left click and drag it to the from a box to select the
villagers that you want to form a group. Next press CTRL Key and a
number 1~9. For example you want to call the group of villagers Group
3. After that command, you can call the group by pressing "3" on the
keyboard. This is an efficient way of group villagers, make work
easier.

EXPLORING THE MAP
As usual, feel free to explore, but beware of nature predators such as
Lions and Alligators. The Libryans has a Scout which is much powerful
compared to the villager. So it is recommended that you explore in
groups. Refer to Section [4-1-1] for more details.

FINDING DISCOVERIES
That's the objective of this scenario. On the terrain, you find huge
weird structures that looks like the remains of a strange monster.
Just simply assign a character and walk over the discovery until you
saw a blue flag [is marked that you have made a discovery]. Do this
quicky before the Libryans found them. There are five of them. Here
is the locations:

1. Discovery found northwest from the Town Center. There is a lion
  hiding in between the forests, beware!
2. Discovery found south from the the Town Center. There are a herd  
  of gazelles found here.
3. Discovery found near the Enemy's Town Center. Beware the Scout
  and the Lion found there. The Enemy's Town Center is located east
  from your Town Center [it is being seperated by the cliff!]
4. Discovery found at the northeast of the map. It is being surrounded
  by forests and there is another herd of gazelles. Top right hand
  corner of the map.
5. Discovery found at the northeast of the map. Top left hand corner
  of the map. It is being surrounded by a Palm Trees and there is a
  lion plus an alligator...

TIPS:

STRATEGY
This section is quite tough... as your foe has a strong military, a
Scout. Make sure that your villagers always move in groups. Gathered
some wood to your stockpile [sufficient to build a storage pit, a
granary and two houses]. Build the Granary near the berry bushes found
at the south from your town center. Note that there is an alligator near
the shores and the Scout is somewhere there. So don't go too far..
Gather more manpower [8 villagers will be enough] Assign 4 villagers to
kill the lion found at the forest northwest of the map. Don't bother to
hunt it. Instead of gathering food, build a storage pit at the forest.
Next stock up the food and create more villagers. Do this until you
have twelve villagers. Assign six healthy villagers and head west,
passing through the cliffs and kill that lion.[it take about 4 hits]
Next kill off that Scout and you should be able to finish it without
any casualties. Next target on the enemy's Town Center until it is
destroyed and you will win the scenario!

NAME OF SCENARIO: Dawn of a New Age   6,000 BC
OBJECTIVE:        Advance to Tool Age
STARTING:         0 Wood, 0 Food, 0 Gold, O Stone
UNITS:            3x Villagers, 1x Town Center

FISHING
Your villagers can become fisherman! Just click the villagers and right-
click on the fishing site [you will see fishes popping out from it.]
Fishermen can gather food at the twice of the rate of a forager! Note
that you can do fishing on the shore. To do fishing at the sea, you need
to build a dock. Build one and have a couple of fishing boats and have
a great time in fishing!

ADVANCE TO THE NEXT AGE
You must acquired two Stone Age Buildings [Storage Pit, Granary, Dock
and Barracks] and plus have 500 food in your stockpile. After meeting
the requirements, select the Town Center and select the icon below the
"Villager" icon. Note that you can't create any villagers while
proceeding to a new age.

TIPS:

STRATEGY:
For this scenario is rather special. Wood is more important than food!
First of all, have two villagers concentrate on fishing the Shore Fish
found at north of your Town Center. Have the other villager concentrate
on chopping down Palm Trees for wood. After a villager have been created
have them villager assign to build a House. Next assign that villager to
chop down trees for wood. After the fisherman have finished the Shore
fish site, concentrate on getting wood from the Palm Trees near the
shores. Used up the food to create four more villagers! Next have the
others build two Houses and a Dock. Assign every villagers to chop down
trees for wood. Have the Dock to create fishing boats [they can get
15 food each time!]. Never ever stop chopping wood to build fishing
boats. After the villagers has done finished chopping all the wood in
that area, you can hunt that elephant found at the south of your Town
Center [hopefully you have build a Storage Pit long ago..]. After
sometime, you will have enough food in your stockpile, advance to the
next age and victory will be yours!
