My Lands: Black Gem Hunting (MyLands) is a browser-based massively multiplayer online game. Genre – military economic real-time strategy, fantasy.

In the era when "the dark" and "the light" lived in peace a source of power, never known to any race, was discovered:the Black Gems.

My Lands game is the first on-line MMO strategy game where you can withdraw money

The balance of strength was disrupted and everyone tried to seize control over the Black Gems production. The Great Empire collapsed and the internecine war broke out. The inhabitants of your City have chosen you as their ruler and conferred absolute authority on you. Found new cities, study sciences, construct and upgrade buildings, train troops, hire Heroes, trade at Market, explore lands searching for abandoned domains of unknown ancient civilisation: Ruins, Pits, Salt Lakes, and Mines, defeat Monsters, seize Outer Domains from other players, spy on other players, fight for villages adjacent to cities, destroy enemy buildings and repair your own, unite with other rulers to confront enemies and remember that fragile peace is always better than murderous war.
There's a magic resource in the Game – the Black Gems. It can be both purchased for real money and obtained in the Game: stolen from Monsters in Ruins, produced in Salt Lakes of flying islands, and bought at the auction for the in-game Gold. The Black Gems can be spent on Premium services, or on the Subscription that provides the possibility to turn the Black Gems into real money.

Advice on interface: You can toggle the full-screen mode in the Game Settings. But the full-screen mode Flash doesn't support keyboard, which means you won’t be able to write letters or enter numbers.
As an alternative, put mouse cursor in the address bar and press F11, what you get will be actually the same full-screen mode that works in most browsers and doesn't cut keyboard off.

Have fun by playing: My Lands Universe

MyLands universe contains many worlds, but all of them are divided only into two types: military or mining. The life in military worlds is harsher than in mining ones. However, earnings of the Blck Gems are also higher there (at the same opportunities). The world's area is 73x22 cells. Each cell is a kingdom full of monsters, enemies and friends. Humans, elves, dark elves and demons – here is almost the exact list of races inhabiting My lands.
  • Demons: they prefer to settle near volcanoes, dead land is their nature. The most powerful units are Demonesses. Resource mined: stone. Dark elves' allies.
  • Dark elves: they inhabit cursed forests. The most powerful units are mages. Most rapidly extracted resources: wood and iron. Allies: demons.
  • Knights: they inhabit the holy land, the best resource is gold, and the best units are carriers (most capacious from among the other races). Allies: elves.
  • Elves: they inhabit magic forests. Elves like most producing wood, and healers are the best units. Allies: knights.
It is obvious that dark and light races run an infinite war between them. Although the armed forces of all races are initially almost equal, they may have different bonuses. Some races' healers revive more troops in battle, while others' mercenaries attack more aggressively. To diversify the ordinary course of war, MyLands has missions – non-combat and combat.

MyLands Non-Combat Missions

ExplorationTo accomplish this mission, you will require a building – expeditionary corps, and training of explorers. Premium Account gives an opportunity of automatic exploration of a particular kingdom (very useful).
Resources purchaseThe building “Market” allows having economic relations with other players. To achieve the tasks, you will need a merchant guild, and, in particular, training of merchants.
Resources transportationSimilarly to resources purchase, a merchant guild and unit training are needed.
City foundationCity foundation may be carried out only at a location that you have previously explored. In addition, an obligatory requirement is to have a trained settler.

Combat Missions

Domain seizureThere are various mines, pits, gold veins, diggings, which can be seized. Seizure is possible, if there are no enemy fortifications or towers left.
Buildings destructionBuildings in outer domains and structures raised beyond a city’s gates can be destroyed.
Slave captureThis mission is obligatorily accomplished using carriers, as only carriers have capacity.
VisionA specific science needs to be studied. In addition, you need to have at least one building with trained visionaries. Using visionaries, you can observe others’ missions.
EspionageA special skill also needs to be studied. Spies make it possible to penetrate a rival’s domain or castle, watch buildings, troops, availability of resources, etc.
RobberyJust as with slave capture, carriers are involved in robbery.

Military and Industrial Complex

Even though war is the main event in the world of MyLands, the emphasis in the game process is made on the economic side, as the more troops you create, the more resources you will need to allocate to them. Just as in real life, it is not enough to have money for creating an army. Crops, wood, gold, iron – this is what a My lands unit consists of. Therefore, those who like crushing the enemy with legions of newly-recruited soldiers will have to reconsider their opinion with regard to war: units are not expendables here, they need to be fed, nourished and cherished.

Your army in MyLands can and needs to be "upgraded". To do this, an Alchemist Lab needs to be constructed. The science you will study there will be at first used to study the types of units, and then to "upgrade" them – increase each unit's force, but also its particular characteristics. Just as many other strategies, has a strict system of troops opposition. For instance, it is known that pikemen should be used against cavalry, cavalry against archers, infantry against pikemen, and so on. It is the same with My lands, and the system is easier to remember as a picture read from the left to the right: warriors are killed by cavalry, cavalry is killed by airborne units, airborne units are killed by archers, and archers are killed by warriors... Mercenaries, mages, healers and carriers live separately in the world of war. Each type of troops is trained in a particular building, the level of which can also be upgraded. However, a building's development level does not define the unit's force. The higher is the building developed, the less time will be required for training. And I have to say that this is quite important, as all processes in My lands take very much time. For example, construction of some buildings takes 120 hours (i.e. five days!) of virtual workers' hard labor. And a healer's training takes as much as three hours at the building's first level. At the same time, at the building's seventh level, the time is reduced to one hour (however, it can be accelerated to 21 minutes, which is done by many players to develop more rapidly). Taking into account that a single unit doesn't play any role, and huge hordes of soldiers are required, game sucks you in the nets of unit training for months, years – for eternity!

By the way, the rating system should be mentioned. It protects game novices from experienced gamers. A recruit of My lands has to pass through five stages of training and army creation in order to get completely involved in the dangerous world full of adventures. The rating of army strength doesn't allow stronger players with a higher ranking attacking weaker rivals on mining servers. Thus, a novice of My lands universe gets an opportunity to try himself as a great state's ruler for months, without fearing his army's integrity being threatened by stronger neighbors. However, this doesn't fully apply to military servers.

The Black Gems make the game's world go round

Everything is very simple with economics in MyLands: extract resources, construct cities, train and maintain your army. The essential money, namely gold, comes from destroyed ruins. Thereafter, it is sent to the market, where the player can exchange it for the required resources: crops, iron, and so on... My lands also has other sources of gold, for instance, gold veins. However, it is not an easy task to seize and, moreover, maintain them. This task is almost impossible to fulfill without magic and diplomacy.

One man no man

An online game can't be imagined without an opportunity to unite in clans. My lands is about the same: having constructed a diplomatic corps, you will be able to contact other players, unite in clans with them, share experience, help each other with resources, and fight the enemy together!

Heroes in see you in the tavern

Speaking of My lands heroes, Heroes of Might and Magic come to my mind. Everything is the same here! A hero gathers an army, makes it stronger, faster. With the hero, the army better attacks and defends. However, the hero alone is worth nothing in My lands, so he's just stuck in the tavern, waiting for you to hire him. Scrolls with spells and artefacts help the hero. The more powerful are your hero's artefacts, the more frightening he is in you enemies' eyes. They should be searched for in ruins, but most often, they can be found sold at the artefact store for the gaming currency of black gems. Your hero may also get an artefact for accomplishing some quests.

1) Hard Cash. The game currency in My Lands

Even a novice can earn some BG (Black Gems) in My lands. The Black Gems is a specific resource used to purchase game commodities (including both artefacts and scrolls) and improvements. Here is the approximate mathematics: at 20 BGs per hour per one salt lake, you can get 480 BGs per day. The problem is that such domains are often seized by strong players.

2) Even a novice can earn the Black Gems

The game's currency, Black Gems, is a specific resource used to purchase game commodities (including both artefacts and scrolls) and improvements. Here is the approximate mathematics: at 20 BGs per hour per one salt lake, you can get 480 BGs per day. The problem is that such domains are often seized by strong players.

There is another type of earnings of the game currency in MyLands: BGs can be purchased at an auction. You construct a market, collect gold in the surrounding ruins, create "golden cities", hire a special hero with the required artefacts and scrolls, which will increase gold in your cities. Then, you spend gold for BGs. Also, take into account that the game has an Archruin – lvl 7. It appears once per quarter, but the resources it contains are hard to imagine: over 100000 BG in a single archruin. There is a proverb saying that the first pancake is always a blob. However, this thesis cannot be applied to MyLands. However, this didn't anyhow hinder MyLands to become the best online strategy of 2010. It is worth giving it a try, isn't it?

My Lands

In the beginning of the game you find yourself in your first City.

The green arrows as the promts will help you to develop your city to level 2 without difficulty. After that your Counsellor will continue to study you - click the Counsellor's icon in the bottom right corner in order to open the "Quests" window.

After entering the Kingdom Map you’ll be able to see other rulers’ cities. You shouldn’t be afraid of them – while the City Gate is closed other players cannot attack you! Only you can decide when the time to open the Gate comes, but in order to do that the "Gate" science has to be studied.

The later stages of the game are described in this letter. You can read this information now or afterwards.

When the Gate is closed the following interactions with other players are possible:
- Messaging (just click the "Messages" button in the bottom left corner);
- Trade (in order to sell or exchange resources the Marker building has to be constructed; to buy resources the Merchants, that can be trained in the Merchant Guild building, are needed);
- Espionage (the Spy Guild building has to be constructed);
- Alliance (the Diplomatic Corps building has to be constructed).

Before opening the Gate it’s recommended to construct a few defensive buildings and train some troops (in the military buildings) for the sake of city defence. When you there is attack against you, the "Missions" icon will turn red.

After the Gate is opened you will be able to:
- attack other players;
- receive assistance from allies;
- get access to Villages outside the City Wall, where you can construct buildings after studying the "Villages" science and upgrading the Main Building to level 5. Producing Buildings in Villages produce resources faster than in City, but buildings in Villages can be destroyed by other players;
- explore Kingdoms in order to found new cities, search for Ruins, Pits, Mines, and so on  (train your Explorers in the Expeditionary Corps building);
- seize Pits, Mines and Salt Lakes (after the "Outer Domains" science is studied)
- rob Ruins – but beware of the Monsters living in the Ruins!  Maybe you will need help of your allies in the Joint Attack.
- found new cities (using Settlers that can be trained in the Colonisation Centre building).

As your Cities develop, Resources production grows, and army units train, your Rating will rise. You can always check the Rating in the Ratings Window.

If you wish to look after your friend’s character use the Substitute function. For detailed information on the Substitute function consult the Encyclopaedia.

You can ask questions and discuss the Game on the My Lands Forum.

Have fun and high ratings in the Game!
