Strategy Edit

You start with a small base with a few villagers. Get to work on your economy right away producing as many villagers as possible. You will receive numerous raids from Ming Army starting with several skirmishers and crossbowmen, to two handed swordsmen later on. Cam Bahn will attack you periodically as well but Ming is the immediate threat. After you've got a decent economy, a few military buildings and a castle you should try to get to the Imperial Age. Once there build Trebuchets to take down Ming's towers and gates. The base directly to the North has an archery range and the Cam Bahn Market that needs to be destroyed for the side quest. From the causeway leading to the North camp you can destroy the Ming Castle and open the second gate with Trebuchets. Once the gates are down the Ming fall quickly.

The locals to the southwest will show you a passageway to cut off the Ming Fleet if you find their settlement and build a mill for them. This path will take you a group of soldiers guarding a hill with the help of a Dragon Ship. Constructing a castle on this hill will complete the objective.

Cam Banh is in a well fortified city with a castle guarding the gate. Trebuchets can deal with this while infantry protect from the archers and siege they send against you. They have no villagers so once their production buildings are destroyed they cannot be rebuilt. The initial raids sent against you consist mostly of Chu No Ku, Long swordsmen, Light Cavalry and Knights. Outside the walls of the city is a monastery with a Relic guarded by some infantry and 3 Monks. It is recommended that  you take a few villagers with you after the initial assault on the base to build production buildings so your units will not have to traverse the map to reinforce your losses. 

Since the armies you fight rely heavily on archers its best to upgrade to Imperial Skirmishers to help keep that at bay, guarded by infantry and Rattan Archers to protect against their minimum range. There is abundant wood at your starting location to fill this need. You will lose a lot of men repelling the raids in the early to mid game. Gold is more scarce and should be used to build trebuchets to deal with your opponent's buildings and militia line troops to defend your archers and skirmishers who will make quick work of enemies when grouped up.

Additional Tips Edit

There is a relic hidden in the forest directly north of your lumber camp but the trees must be cleared before it can be reached.Once you destroy the enemy wonder you must construct another, since you don't have to defend it, once the city has been cleared of hostiles you can commit all you villagers to its construction to win the scenario.
