If you have come here looking for a general Game Guide, please see the Table of Contents or Introduction.
The Main Page
The main page is the page you see when you first log in. It displays your warband name, number, and stats, as well as clan info (if you're in one) and news. It also contains a "ticker" to tell you how long it is to the next turn.
The stats give you a basic overview of your warband, telling you you your rank, how many turns you have, how much land you control, how much food and cash you have, and the number of workers, troops, and hawks that serve your warband. While not as in depth as the status page, it gives you an at a glance picture of how your warband is doing.
The turn ticker counts down the minutes until the next turn(s) are received. It also informs you of the turn rate of the server, and the current game time.
If you are member of a clan, below the stats you will find a clan forum and a clan crier. The clan forum is a place for members of the clan to communicate with one another, plan, post enemy stats, etc.
The crier is a place for the clan leadership to post announcements regarding the clan, post rules and policies, details on alliances, etc.
The News section shows your recent news. This includes details on recent attacks on you, whether successful or failed, and losses from those attacks; goods sold on the market, members joining your clan(if you run one), members leaving your clan(again, if you run one), you being removed from another's clan, etc.
In short, the Main Page is the central location of your warband, the place where you assess the needs of your warband, it's strengths and weaknesses, and who your enemies are. Your central command center, if you will. It's an important tool, and not something to be ignored.
