Commands used for developing a tribe's territory and agriculture. Requires strength as well as interaction with the appropriate terrain to work. Efficiency is proportionate to the champion's level and family rating.
Till the land in a straight line as dictated by the player's direction of choice. Converts grass panels into farmlands to produce grain, thereby feeding the populace and enabling them to grow in size.
- Herd Cattle
Watch over the cattle to keep them safe and well-fed. A champion performing this task can help stave off cattle raids from other tribes or mitigate the effects of disease spread by the Fomors.
- Chop Wood
Chop trees to collect wood for construction and bartering. Excessive usage of this command is not recommended as forests may completely dissipate as a result. To replant new trees, command a druid to conjure them and wait for them to grow in one year.
Mine rocky terrain to collect ores used for construction and bartering. While coastal provinces have more rocks than inland terrain, they are still limited in number and may eventually run out if mined excessively.
Command a druid or bard to cast beneficial spells to support a province. Requires an appropriate amount of mana to enact and leaves user too drained to perform another task.
- Play Hurling
Direct a champion to play a game of hurling, raising their experience and ability level at a faster rate than any other command. Must be done on an open field to take effect.
Send a champion to explore adjacent provinces beyond the player's borders. Although it takes 2 months for characters to return, this command is a necessary step to obtain more lands or make contact with neighboring tribes.
Construct new buildings for burgs and citadels, elevating their current level. Increases the amount of family and soldiers a champion has, but costs a continuous amount of wood and ore.
Examine all elements of the province map. This includes data on champions, buildings, and even terrain.
Order a champion to rest so they can recover their strength. Ends upon gaining full strength or receiving new orders. Champions recruited in battle will start out in this state.

- Grassland, Farmland and Rockland - Has low resistance to mobility.

- Marsh, Forest, and Sea - Impossible to cross through.
Communicate with an adjacent champion. Options vary depending on whether the target is an ally or foe.
- Negotiation - Convince the invading side's chief to withdraw in exchange for goods. Has a chance of failing.
- Taunt - Provoke an enemy to attack recklessly, lowering their guard against retaliation.
- Change Item - Swap items with an ally.
- Encourage - Motivate an ally to fight harder, increasing their strength points and ability level.
Escape to a nearby province. Weakened champions have a higher risk of being caught by the opposing side.
Defend against incoming attacks. Provides a slight boost in strength and mana. Extremely effective when used to shield magic users and weakened warriors from harm.
Inflict a 3-hit attack on an enemy unit. Damage is based on the champion's stats as well as the amount of soldiers in their ranks.
- Hand-to-Hand Combat
A tactic reserved for warriors, it allows them to single-handedly challenge enemy fighters to a duel. The character with the highest strength and stats is more likely to win. Useful when controlling a champion with insufficient soldiers. Has a chance of failing.
Command a druid or bard to cast spells in battle. Expends mana if successful.
Has the same function as its province counterpart. All units will automatically rest before the next morning arrives.
Commands accessed by the player once a battle has been won.
- Dungeon - View captured champions.
- Conclude - Pass judgment on captives. Options include recruit, release, and exile. Stubborn captives may be released for later recruitment or exiled to prevent them from reappearing in battle. Exiled rulers will simply be replaced by a successor. Fomors cannot be recruited or released when captured.
- Create - Commission a champion to craft a new item using wood and metal. Usually takes 2 to 4 months to complete. The type and quality of items crafted depend on the creator's level and ability stat.
- Caravan - Barter with other tribes by way of caravans. Can only be done if a tribal relationship has been established via tribute. Depending on the distance of the destination, trade missions may take several months to end. When a tribe is unable to initiate a trade, they may change their minds if players bargain or choose different resources to swap. Turning away caravans from other tribes is considered a hostile action and will lower the player's peace rating.
Trade goods are measured in basic rates for the player's convenience.
- 1 Cow = 50 Units of Grain
- 1 Unit of Metal = 10 Units of Grain
- 1 Unit of Wood = 5 Units of Grain
- Poll - Listen to gossip or advice from the local populace. Provides helpful hints for beginning players.
- Move - Transfer champions and resources to another province. May take months to accomplish depending on the distance of the destination. Can be used to settle in empty territories or deploy inactive champions.
- Delegate - Reduce the number of controllable provinces by delegating leadership to the highest ranking champion available. Primarily focuses on land development, though diplomatic missions may occur from time to time. Very useful when there are more than enough areas to micromanage.
- Cattle Raid - Raid a nearby province to obtain cattle. Can only be done to areas owned by other tribes. Up to 3 champions can be sent for this task and they will benefit from a boost in experience if successful. It is recommended not to use this command on friendly tribes or their peace rating with the player will suffer.
- Recommend - Persuade a neighboring faction to join forces, converting them into an auxiliary tribe. Can be broken off at the conceding ruler's whim. If relationships continue to improve, the auxiliary tribe will permanently annex itself to the player's domain. Should this command be used on a tribe with low trust, their peace rating will simply decrease by 5 points.
- Tribute - Send tribute to establish friendly ties with another tribe. Gifts to be given include items, grain, wood, metal, or cattle; the higher the amount, the more peace points earned. Not very effective when used to bond with hostile factions.
- War - Send troops to wage war against a neighboring tribe. Winning champions will receive a boost in experience and gain control of the losing army's province. An essential command to consolidate power early on, though repeated use may leave players surrounded at all sides.
- Dismiss - Dismiss an unneeded champion, causing them to roam freely and join other rulers.
- Treasury - Give an item or stone rune from the treasury to a champion.
