As you can see, I have pointed out some crucial things about this game map; let’s have a look, shall we?

Button 1: This is a set of useful links which you will find necessary at some point of your gaming experience. They include:
- a link to the game homepage, which is always useful; 
- a link to the official game forum, where you can find all sorts of information about Travian and communicate with other players;
- a link to the Answers page (FAQ), which is where you are now; 
- a link to the Terms and Conditions of the game (also known as legal stuff);
- a link to the imprint, which will give you same basic info on the company and its creators.

Button 2: The little black book in your lower left corner will open a popup window where you will be able to choose from a variety of very useful links, including a link to the game forum, the option to message the Support and the current set of game rules. Also, there is a link to the in-game manual; this manual will provide you with quick (but short) information about the tribes, their units and buildings. You can always choose to visit the Answers if you need a more detailed explanation.

Button 3: This is the taskmaster; he gives you quests or tasks you need to complete as he guides you into the basic principles and concepts of the game. By clicking on him, you can check if there are any new tasks for you to complete, or if there is a reward waiting for you for already completing a task. 

Button 4: The signpost shows you the current loyalty level of the selected village, but clicking on the signpost twice will allow you to change the village name.

Button 5: This is the village overview button. It takes you straight to the page you are already on.

Button 6: This takes you to your village centre, which is where you can build many buildings, like a rally point, cranny, or even an academy.

Button 7: This is the map button, which will bring you to the huge world map of Travian. If you click it, it will show you exactly where you are located, but lets worry about that later.

Button 8: This is the statistics button. It will take you to something like a ranking system for the game. You can see where you stand against other players.

Button 9: This is the reports button; you receive reports when you complete a trade, receive reinforcements, are attacked or have completed an attack, and so on. The button will glow green when there is a new report for you to see, and a number of new unread reports will also be shown.

Button 10: This is the messages button; by clicking on this button, you will be taken to your inbox. There, you can read your received and sent messages, or write new ones. Just like the reports, when there are new messages for you to read, the button will glow (gold) and a small number will be displayed, telling you how many unread new messages you have.

Button 11: This is the Plus/Gold button. It shows you how much Gold (and Silver) you currently have; when you click on it, you will be taken straight to the page where you can purchase Gold and activate Plus account and Gold club features.

Button 12: This is your hero; yes, this too is a button! Clicking on the avatar of your Hero will take you to the hero options page, where you can equip your hero, change his resource production, alter his appearance, and so on. 
Button 12a: This small map-like image is the adventure’s button. By clicking it, you will be able to see if any new adventures have popped up nearby.
Button 12b: This is the auctions button. If you click on it, you will be taken to the auctions page, where you can bid or sell Hero items and view the current auctions taking place.

Button 13: This button is your profile button. By clicking on it, you can change the settings of your account, add sitters, change your profile content or even set your account to deletion.

Button 14: Finally, this is the logout button (not like you’ll need it, right?). To log out of your account, press this button.

Now that we have talked about the buttons, you will know exactly what all the interface buttons that will appear on every page do, but you still need to learn a little more about the game itself before you can become a true Travian player. Don’t fret; you are well on your way to becoming one of the most powerful rulers in the game.
