Default New Players

My suggestion for New Players is this:

1. Read the help menu thouroughly.
2. Choose an easy race to you get comfortable in the game. Undead is about the easiest race you can use just build archers, horsemen and elites and join an alliance so that you can have eyes to see who you can attack. You dont need mines except metal mines and smithies for your weapons. You dont need thieves or mages.

3. Disadvantage is your going to get robbed so you must accept this facet of the game.

I will discuss the other races later

I personally would not suggest undead for the first race. It is very easy to play with, but you will completely miss about two thirds of the game (wizardry and thievery).

I would only suggest Undead when you already know the game, and want an easyly managable country. Maybe as a second country if you have one in the upper levels.

The problem is that with an undead you can play. But you will not be good and it is boring. Unless your not experienced with experienced player.
I think undead race sux, but its true if you make an alliance of three undeads and az elf it can be good. But not the best!
I think.

i think a human thief is good for a start comfy, with forts, and archers.... a lot of thieves and some mages.... just don't forget your special race spell!

Post Elf

Or another race for the beginers is the elf. It has very good defence and most of the people don`t attack you if they can`t see anything of what defence you have.
Your only problems are the thieves so you have to train as much as you can of them.

I agree with Ink@. I think the elves are really good to start with. Good defence, and can be fun to play with them. Their spell is really good, nobody knows how hard is to get through their defence and if they can "reply" to the attack.
Personally my first choice was dwarves... Maybe not the best if you are afraid of thieves but can have a great bunch of units.

Sounds to me that the undead race is indeed the way to go for a new player. Less options to deal with = a easier game to play for the first time. Kind of like checkers vs chess. You yourself Ati say it is very easy to play AND easy to manage that sort of country. While the magic and looting aspect of the game looks very interesting I could easily drop it and concentrate on less game stuff and so try to get through the game for a set.

It's totally up to you. I would still not recommend it, simply because even though this race cannot use magic and thievery, OTHERS CAN USE THESE AGAINST YOU! And if this is your first time playing Queosia, you won't know what's possible and what's not against you.

Default More questions

Well I have already picked giants as my race so I doubt if I will go try another kingdom before I master this one.
-----
OK. This is what is confusing me now;

1. I think I had around 200 land when I explored for more but now after I was attacked for a few days I lost some - down to around 174 acres. But the game won't allow me to recover that lost land through more exploring. And I have read another players post in here suggesting that I shouldn't attack others for awhile - stay on that 200 acres as long as you can. Lol, I have never encounter this problem in other text games. So where does this leave me at? And should I have waited to explore for land so I would of had that for a future back up option?

2. And I thought it interesting that the game said I could wait to choose my race and personality but I went ahead and picked my desired types after a few days of playing. But I have been unable to find a new players guide to what exactly each race (and personality type) helps you with. Can anyone point to that particular page?

You can find more info on races in Help -> Races, and more info on personalities in Help -> Personalities.

If your country is not fully built up to be able to defend itself at 200 acres, it stands an even smaller chance of defending itself with more land. Build everything up, train as many military units as possible, have your science at maximum, then gain more land. Either by exploring (if you have lots of barren land, you won't be able to explore) or by attacking others for land.
