It's a little like the ticking of a clockwork mechanism, with all the cogs and sprockets placed carefully, but firmly, in their places. Or like the humming of the bees, flying about in a seemingly chaotic manner but unified by a common purpose ever-present in their hive-mind. There's also a hint of children's laughter and a distant sound of farm animals. A distinctive note of golden coins jingling against each other in the treasury. Finally, an ominous, almost inaudible distant uproar of armed men gathering near the borders. All this, in a perfect unison, is the sound of a living kingdom, and can only be heard from the top of the highest tower of the royal castle. You know this sound quite well, don't you?In The Settlers 3: Ultimate Collection your goal is to lead a nation to power and glory and your work begins at the very basics.
