After you have created your city, you will be taken to the New Unit page. This is a special unit creation page that allows you to spend your wealth to buy equipment for each of your starting units. Your units will have no equipment until you purchase some on this page. You will definitely need armor and weapons, at least!
The top section shows your wealth and recruits remaining, error messages such as the one shown in red in the screen shot. The COST column shows how much you have spent in total. Use the Save button as you make your equipment and other choices to update the units in the database, and when finished with this page.
The first unit is your main character. You can change the name of this character, and select from the equipment available to him/her in the EQUIPMENT column. The COST of your choices is shown in the next column. If your choice of equipment conflicts with another, that will be indicated in the CONFLICTS column. Conflicting equipment may not be used at the same time, or perhaps at all, depending on which is conflicting. Note that the icon will change to reflect your equipment changes when you save the data. (When the EQUIP system is implemented, you will be able to choose which of the items your character or unit is currently using.)
The next unit is a henchman. You can change the name in the text box, and change gender and class using the drop-down select controls. You select equipment similarly to your main character.
Below your henchman are the three units that you start with. Their classes may be changed using the drop-down select controls. Again, you may choose their equipment options.
IMPORTANT: You cannot proceed with your first turn if you have overspent your wealth or used more recruits than you currently have.
