In the fourth mission of Ulf Ironbeard's campaign After capturing the final village your ally will apear. He's got a fleet of twelve ships and you need to make sure at least eight of them survive. Be fast and destroy the catapults before they sink the ships.

You will need to cap all villages in a mission of Rurik's campaign.

You need to produce five catapults before the night comes in Edward's campaign. This means you need to collect enough resources and build a blacksmith to research catapults as fast as possible.

You need to kill a total of two thousand peasants. One of the Devs stated any peasant on the map that gets killed counts towards this. Peasants in enemy base (standing near buildings, extinguishing buildings, reapairng/building) also count to this trophy.

This one is rewarded for capturing the village Kopytko in Mieszko's campaign.

You have to collect some armor pieces in a mission of Rudolf's campaign.

To capture a village, first command your squads to set it on fire, then occupy it to take it over (both actions are reflected by the status bar above the village's main building). Villages can have four levels of defense: no defense, brown, silver and gold - all reflected by the outline of village's status bar. The higher the defense, the more troops are needed to take it over, and more soldiers might die while they capture the village.Take notice, that capturing stops upon enemy soldiers entering the village.

If you have more squads than your villages food production can support, then you will start to lose stockpiled food. When you run out of stockpiled food your squads will starve. If your squads are starving, then your squads will be defeated in fights you should have won. When training squads keep in mind the increased food upkeep.

Do what you can to avoid starving. You can strike at enemy food production to starve him. Starving will put a player at a large disadvantage.

Try taking a village with food production.
Factions may have techs that reduce upkeep, or boost food production.
Factions may have have prayers that reduce upkeep or boost production.
Make sure your village farms are producing food.
You can disband some of your excess squads.

The viking upkeep reduction tech is basically required for the vikings as the game progresses. The saxons and germans upkeep reduction is useful but not required. While the slavs should frequently use the upkeep prayer. Both the vikings and slavs have a production boost tech. This boosts your production for your base, and can be useful but not amazing.

Tip 1
Units are precious, especially one with upgrades. If the combat looks like it's going the wrong way, consider retreating your units to rest and resupply. Losing experience and armor will hurt your war effort. Conversely, it's a good idea to have fast units in reserve to run down retreating enemies (in keeping with the traditions of the period).

Tip 2
Beyond the basic natural features and impassable obstacles, the game also adds another wrinkle: Units can hide in bushes, high grass, or forests, allowing them to attack the enemy at an optimal moment. More importantly, ranged units will remain invisible, even while attacking, as long as the enemy isn't in direct contact.

Tip 3
Attacking an enemy from the back, flank or charging at him, grants you extra damage and lowers the enemy morale even before the actual fight begins. It can give you a significant advantage.

Tip 4
An outnumbered unit also suffers significant morale loss.

Tip 5
Friendly fire is a big morale loss for your own units.

Villages come in three types: bronze, silver and gold. Each village will provide a combination of food, wood and iron. All villages are not equal. When you are taking a village, especially at the start of the game. It is important to send enough squads to take them. You can tell the strength of each village-neutral, allied, or enemy-by looking at the frame color around the village health bar.

Average number of squads required to take an unfortified village:
Bronze Village - 1 Squad, Silver Village - 2 Squads, Gold Village - 3 Squads

Exception, viking blacksmiths can upgrade building HP, Viking villages can be harder to take.

Once you control a village be sure to send the villagers back to work. This can be done by directly clicking the village on the battlefield, or by the buttons in the lower right side. It is important to always keep your villages producing.
