Default Rule the Imperium? the tau empire? Or just a solar system?

I came across this really really cool game on the internet recently:

www.ogame.org

what it does is stated eloquently on the homepage:
Welcome to OGame
OGame is a strategic space simulation game with thousands of players competing with each other simultaneously. All you need to play is a standard web browser.

What is OGame about?
As an intergalactic emperor you can strengthen your influence throughout the galaxies by numerous strategies. Beginning your rulership at your homeworld you begin to build an economic and military infrastructure with your resources. Researching new techniques and upgrading your buildings and researches gives you access to superior technologies and improved weapon systems. During the game you have the option to colonize planets and to create alliances together with friendly emperors. Trading with other players and fighting against enemy empires helps you to get the resources you need to prosper even more quickly.


I would recommend this game to anyone. Starting up is slow, but your empire gets going after a while. Mine is small, but expanding nonetheless. You'll find me in universe 2 and 8 as Deadnight, shockingly. My homeworld is Harakon. Check it out if interested. Alliances are welcome.

So, tips for starting up. you want power for resources. power comes from solar plants. you need power to extract your fuels (minerals, crystals and deuterium). you need the above to make further upgrades, build structures and reearch new technologies. you need certain technologies if you want to build certain units, like your fleet, or planetary defenses.

They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war. None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."

Hmmm... this looks interesting. RuneScape is starting to bore me without Ironman around, so I've been playing a sweet breakout-style game all day - but now I will check this out.

- MtR

EDIT: Is there an instruction manual or anything similar?

Never heard of that one. Might ahve to give me a link Wargamer.

Anyhow, signed on, Spiritbw, Planet Vandrac. Went with Galaxy 12 as it only just started Dec 7 of this year. Not likely to have more powerful empires out there till I manage to build up.
