Every player in Survive the Dark Ages has their own personal Settlement.
When you are logged in you can find your settlement in the settlement section
Your settlement is where you create your resources, and recruit levies who can be trained in to troops, and purchase other upgrades.
Settlements cannot be attacked, instead they provide you with the resources you will need to take part in the greater wars going on in your kingdom.
More information is available on the settlements page.
As you try to purchase upgrades you may find yourself limited in terms of resources.
It may then be the right time for you to visit the Trade Offers section to see if the resources you are lacking are available for trade.
You can also set up the terms of the trade yourself through the Make a Trade section.
More information is available on the Trade page.
Once you have enough levy you can start thinking of Army Recruitment.
Depending on the resources available in the settlement they can train to become infantry, scouts, archers or heavy cavalry.
When you have raised an army, you can go about using it.
Troops are used to conquer territories for your kingdom.
You can also move troops around, putting them in territories (as long as you are the garrison commander of the territory) and taking them out to use in your army. You can also send troops to other players, all moves except attacks cost resources. The amount it will cost is determined by the number of territories you are the garrison commander of among other factors.
More information is available on the Armies page.
At the moment the game allows you to fight and conquer territories in the British Isles and Ireland.
There are three Kingdoms fighting for control of the British Isles and Ireland:
Ireland - Norse–Gaels - Pictland
