Current Mood: quixotic
...out of curiosity I raided an unoccupied oasis, full of rats, bats and spiders and my 3 mace-men didn't come back. What a flippin' waste. The good news, I just built my cranny up to a level 10.
So here's a question on ethics: If I am in an alliance that has an alliance with one group who has a NAP with a second group and the second group is attacking me, isn't that bad form? Or is it not because my specific alliance doesn't have an agreement with the second group, only the first group. I may have just answered my own question. This game is like crack. I want my life back!!!

Hi. About a week ago I noticed my boyfriend "playing" Travian and I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a try. I typically don't play any computer games, but its pleasing screen layout reminded me of Settlers of Catan, a board game that I take a little to seriously, and as a recent graduate I figured I can afford to take on yet another dorky pastime in lieu of getting on the path to a career. I'm still at that stage where I'm upgrading resources constantly at the breakneck speed of paint drying, waiting for some kind of interaction. So far, I think of travian as something to fiddle with while facebook is loading. I'm sure things will pick up eventually. I actually kind of appreciate how low-key this has been so far, considering how reluctant and, let's face it, critical I am of the computer-gaming lifestyle.

I've been playing Travian for 2 weeks now, I'm a Gaul on both server 1 and 2 US. Wow, it is addicting. I've reached a dilemma though, I think I'm a farmer. And I don't feel bad about it. I keep stealing resources from my neighbors who all started at the same time as me and I use their resources to increase my army. I feel like a bastard, I also use 'we' when I send messages to other villages when referring to myself. I think I'm turning into a loser.

Hi! Good to see a Travian community :)
I've only recently (last week) started playing, also in the UK on server 3 as a Gaul.
Fun so far!

Just to get the ball rolling, a bit about me as a Travian player. I play on the UK server and am a Roman. My in-game name is PurpleButtercup. I'm located in the NW, have two villages and am a member of BoomSE.

I noticed that there are a few of us on LJ who list Travian as an interest, so I thought it might be good to get a community together, especially as we may all play on different servers. If you'd like to join, please do post a bit about yourself, what race you play and that kind of thing and we'll take it from there!
