Due to popular request, the races and climates in the game are no longer only cosmetic.

Change Log
- Overhauled new tutorial system.
- Traits for each race.
- Tweaks to the stamina system.
- Implemented effects on speed and stamina, based on regional climate, in battles.

How to Play


Create armies, settlers and builders to conquer the world map.
Build farms, villages, lumberyards and iron mines for resources, or create a web of alliances and enemies to conquer them from others.
Recruit different types of troop, everything from peasants to musketmen; each with their own strengths and weaknesses.


The time will come to fight battles. When a battle is initiated, the game switches to Battle mode - and your troops appear on a battle map awaiting your orders.
Use tactics to your advantage, use swift moving cavalry to attack your enemy from the rear, or cheap disposable peasants to keep your enemy occupied while you deal with their bowmen.

Be careful! Once your troops are engaged in melee it will be hard to disengage them.
Just like a real battle, your soldiers can become tired (dropping their speed), or become overwhelmed with fear, forcing them to flee the battlefield.

The World

The worlds in Chieftain are made up of scores of nations from 7 distinct races.


Humans have inhabited these lands since days immemorial.


Goblins are an evil, hunchbacked race of demons.


The Kioha are a tribe of undead, spawns from the nethers of Hell.


Freyja are an odd entity originally from the snow-lands.


Draco are cold-hearted lizard-serpents.


A race of beasts of burden, the Vacca are tough warriors.


Cunning and sly, the Lupin are a wolf-like creature.
