    In Kings of Chaos, you are in command of an army of either humans, elves, dwarves, orcs, undead or hobbits. The aim of the game is to strengthen your army to attack other players and take their gold! Players are ranked so you can see how your forces stack up to everyone else.

    To build up your attack and defense strength, you must recruit soldiers and equip them with weapons. You may also hire mercenaries or train your soldiers. To recruit soldiers you must have people click on your unique link (you can find this in your Command Center). Each time you recruit an additional soldier, your attack and defense strength will increase slightly, as will the amount of gold you receive per turn. Also, for every two recruits each of your officers gets, you will receive an additional soldier! The number of officers you can have is unlimited, so the more people who sign up to be your officer the faster you can build your army.

    In addition to those soldiers generated by unique link clicks, you can choose to conscript soldiers - once a day you will recruit a number of soldiers determined by your current 'unit production' value. This value can be upgraded on the Training page.

    To train your soldiers, use the Training page. Soldiers can be trained to be specialists in either attack or defense - whichever you choose, they will boost that ranking further, while ceasing to contribute to the other ranking. You can also train soldiers to become spies or sentries, which will be discussed in more detail later. In this case they cease to contribute to your attack/defense strength and the amount of gold you get per turn, as instead they are being kept in readiness for any covert missions you may choose to send them on.

    You can hire mercenaries on the Mercenaries page, but only up to a strength of 25% of your total force - so for every 3 normal soldiers you gain, you can hire one more mercenary. Mercenaries contribute to your attack or defense strength, but do not contribute to the amount of gold you gain each turn.

    Weaponry can be purchased (and repaired, sold or scrapped) on the Armory page. For each race there are various weapons available for both attacking and defending, becoming increasingly expensive as they become more effective. The exact strength of each weapon in your armory is dependent upon its state of repair (weapons become damaged during battles and must be repaired to remain fully effective), and also your level of siege technology and fortifications. Higher levels of siege technology and fortifications raise the strength of every single weapon you possess, so they are well worth upgrading. You can upgrade your siege and fortification levels on the Armory page.

    Covert Action is a general term for your Spy and Sentry ratings. Your force of spies becomes more powerful by training soldiers to be spies. Every spy you train increases your spy strength, and therefore helps you move up in spy ranking. Also, if you conduct many espionage missions spies will sometimes get caught, so you will need to replace them. If your spy rating is high, you will be able to see more players' gold on the battlefield without having to spy on them. Your force of sentries becomes more powerful by training soldiers to be sentries. Every sentry you train increases your sentry rating. The higher your sentry rating, the harder it is for other players to see your gold on the battlefield, spy on you or sabotage your weapons. If you invest in spies or sentries you should upgrade your covert skill when you can. Upgrading applies to your entire force of spies and sentries. Upgrading covert skill, training spies and training sentries can all be done one the Training page.

    Each race in Kings of Chaos has a particular area in which they excel. These can work to your advantage in gaining higher rankings, so it is worth considering them before choosing your race:

    • Humans earn 15% more gold each turn than the other five races. Since this can be used for just about anything, it is very flexible. Humans also receive 20% spy bonus to give them a covert advantage.

    • Dwarves are 40% stronger at defending than any other race. This makes it more likely that they will withstand enemy attacks, A 25% sentry bonus will help Dwarves keep their gold hidden.

    • Elves are 40% better at recon (spying) and sabotage (sabbing) than any other race. Elves also receive 10% more gold each turn. The Spy bonus & Gold bonus should allow you to build a strong covert account.

    • Orcs attack with 40% more strength than the other races. The advantages to this are obvious, giving you a much better chance of defeating other armies in combat. A 40% bonus on casualties helps to lower losses.

    • Undead lose 60% less soldiers when attacked making this a good protective race if you can't spend a lot of time on the game. Undead are also awarded a 20% defence bonus since its hard to kill the Undead.

    • Hobbits have a 40% Sentry Bonus so they are better at hiding their gold and defending against sabotage with their sentry bonus. Along with a 15% attack bonus gives the Nasty Hobbitses! some strength they will need.

    • Current TBG (Turn-based gold) by race for all soldiers and covert troops:
      • Elves: Untrained, trained attack, and trained defense soldiers earn 2.2 gold per turn. Soldiers trained into covert troops (spies and sentries) earn 0.88 gold per turn.

      • Dwarves, Undead, Orcs and Hobbits: Untrained, trained attack, and trained defense soldiers earn 2 gold per turn. Soldiers trained into covert troops (spies and sentries) earn 0.8 gold per turn.

      • Humans: Untrained, trained attack, and trained defense soldiers earn 2.3 gold per turn. Soldiers trained into covert troops (spies and sentries) earn 0.92 gold per turn.

    Quick Start Guide


    In Kings of Chaos, you are in command of an army of humans, elves, dwarves, orcs, undead or hobbits. To be successful, you must manage your army and defeat your enemies. You must keep your troops in top condition and recover from losses. A powerful army will be strong in all four aspects of the game: attacking, defending, spying, and sentry (counter-intelligence). This makes it important to keep your forces and efforts relatively balanced in all these areas.


    There are a number of ways to build your army and thus generate more gold and become more powerful:

    • You can get people to click on your Unique Link, giving you 4 additional soldiers each time it is clicked.
      • Logged-in players may click a given Unique Link up to 1 times per 24 hours.
    • If you tell friends about Kings of Chaos, you may recruit them as your officers:
      • For every two soldiers your officers gain from their own Unique Links, you will gain an extra soldier for free!
    • You can also gain morale by clicking on the Recruit page. Each letter you click will give you 4x morale which will turn into soldiers.
    • Finally, you may buy mercenaries - soldiers that will fight for you but will not generate extra gold.

    Getting Started (Creating/Activating your account)

    To create an account and establish your presence in the Land of Chaos you must register and activate your username. To do this click the "Register" link in the Menu Bar on the left, fill out the requested information including an email address you have access to. You will then be sent an email with instructions on how to activate your Kings of Chaos account. Once you've done this, you are ready to log in and command your army. Congratulations! You are now a Player in Kings of Chaos.

    When you have a KOC account and give your Unique Link to someone to click, the clicker will also be given the option to join your army as one of your officers! For every two clicks/soldiers an officer receives, you will receive one soldier. (Without doing anything! Just for being their commander! Sweet.)

    Menu Bar

    The Menu Bar contains most of the important features and tools of Kings of Chaos. Located on the left of the page, it allows you to navigate through different aspects of your army and manage your forces.

    Command Center

    The Command Center is where you can see a broad outline of your forces.

    • Your Recruiting Link is found at the top of the Command Center. This is the primary method many players use to build their armies. Give this link to your friends to recruit them as your officers, which quickly grows your army through signup bonuses and trickle-down from their own clicking. Click here to learn how to recruit soldiers
    • User Info shows your general contact information.
    • Military Overview Shows you general military stats, such as what your siege level is at and what fortifications you have. It also shows you how much gold you have and how much you are generating.
    • Officers that you may have show up under this heading. Officers help build your army, and you may also choose to work with them as close allies.
    • Military Effectiveness shows you your Attack, Defense, Spy, and Sentry ratings, as well as how you are ranked against other KOC players in these categories. This section shows you how well you are doing and how you stack up to other players in each aspect of the game.
    • Personnel shows you how your forces are distributed.
    • Previous Logins gives you the IP addresses and times of the last five logins to your account.
    • Preferences is where you go to modify the setting on your account. Be very careful in this section - many of the changes here cannot be undone.


    When you wish to venture out beyond the safety of your fortifications, click the Attack button. Here, you will view the Battlefield, a listing of other players ranked near you. Players in yellow are online and those in green are not currently signed into the game. If you have previously reconned a player, you will see an eye in the first column which will link you to your intelligence log when clicked. The amount of gold in a player's treasury will be displayed if your Spy Rating is much larger than the opponent's Sentry Rating. You can page through the battlefield and search for other armies to attack or spy on. Once you click on a player's name you will see their User Stats, where you can see basic info about the player, any officers the player has, and you can recognize the player as friend, neutral, enemy, alliance member, or ignored if you wish to ignore all messages from them. From the User Stats panel you can choose to send a personal message, or conduct an attack, recon, or sabotage mission.

    • Attack Mission - If you attack successfully, you will steal a portion of the enemy's available gold based on the damage you inflicted and the relative sizes of your armies. There is also a chance that you or your opponent will suffer casualties, based on army size and damage inflicted. The actual damages/repairs are shown on your armory page and not in the attack log. The casualties are listed with mercenaries and soldiers under "your losses" and any covert (spy or sentry) losses are shown in the "details" of the attack log.
    • Reconnaissance Mission - You can conduct Recon missions to view info about an opponent's fortifications and forces. The chance that the mission is a success is dependant on the overall strength of the spies you send, as well as the enemy's Sentry Rating. If the mission is not a success you will no longer lose a portion of the spies you sent. There are a maximum of 20 recons permitted on a specific target per 24 hours.
    • Sabotage Mission - If your opponent has overwhelming defense or has been relentlessly assaulting you, perhaps you may choose to engage in sabotage. In these missions, when you send a number of spies you specify what type and quantity weapons you want to try to sabotage. If your spies make it past enemy sentries they will attempt to sabotage part of the enemy's armory. If you attempt to sabotage too much of the enemy's armory the sabotage will likely fail, and no sabotage mission is guaranteed to be successful. If you fail in a sabotage mission, you may lose a portion of your spies and even some of the tools they carry. You are allowed a maximum of 10 successful sabotage turns against a player per 24 hours and limited to 35 attempts to achieve this.
    • Personnel and Military Effectiveness - When you are preparing to attack, you are also shown your army stats again so you can make sure you want to go through with the mission, and in the case of covert missions, how many spies you have to dedicate to the task. In general, if your opponent has a larger army TFF (total fighting force) than yours, you will steal more of their gold as a reward.

    Attack Log

    Here you can see details of ingoing and outgoing attacks. This can be a very useful way to see how much offensive and defensive damage you do on average, who you need to try to get protection from, or what armies you have had success with in the past. In your attack log you will see Attacks on You and Attacks on Others, and you will be able to page through the attacks if there are too many to fit on one screen.


    To help improve the skills and strength of your soldiers, you may send your soldiers on conquests against various denizens of the Kings of Chaos world. To begin, you go on a conquest against Wolves, with new levels opening up as you progress. Every successful conquest provides you with valuable experience and gold, which you can use to upgrade your technology or economy level in the training section. You may undertake the same conquest multiple times as per your requirements.


    Your Armory is where you keep track of your weapons, and keep them in fighting condition.

    • Current Weapon Inventory is where you see the weapons you currently own, as well as their strengths. If your weapons are damaged, it is cheaper to repair them than to buy new ones. You can also sell weapons at a reduced rate for gold.
    • Current Tool Inventory is where you see the tools for sentries and spies that you currently own. You can also sell spy and sentry tools at a reduced rate.
    • Buy Weapons allows you to purchase new weapons for your forces. In general, the more expensive a weapon is, the stronger it is. Some weapons are unique to your race, while others can be bought by anyone.
    • Buy Tools allows you to purchase new tools for your spies and sentries, making them much more effective.
    • Upgrade Fortifications is where you can strengthen your permanent defenses. This makes it much more difficult to be attacked successfully. Fortifications strengthen your defensive units as a whole.
    • Upgrade Siege Technology allows you to purchase new technologies to attack your opponents. This strengthens your army as a whole.


    In the Alliance section you can create your own alliance or join another player's alliance.

    • Start an alliance by entering the alliance you would like to use to rule over Kings of Chaos.
    • Once you have created an alliance you can give others your alliance join link which is located at the bottom of your alliance page.
    • Once other players join your alliance by clicking the link you will need to approve them.
    • In the alliance center you can also disband alliance, set various levels of members ie. Owner, unapprove or demote them.
    • Players can now upload an alliance image they would like to use to promote their alliance. The image will appear once approved by game admins at the top of your alliance page. Admins will not approve offensive or sexually explicit images (If you do not think it will be approved then do not upload it).
    • Once an alliance image has been submitted via the owner of the alliance that image will also appear on a players stats page underneath what alliances the player is a part of.
    • Alliance stats are also listed underneath the alliance image.


    • Personnel shows you how many soldiers, mercenaries, spies, sentries, etc you have.
    • Train Your Troops allows you train your untrained soldiers to be attack or defense specialists, or to be skilled in the subterfuge of spies and sentries. Here you can also revert any attack or defense soldiers to regular units.
    • Upgrade Covert Skill/Sentry Skill makes all of your spies and sentries more powerful - it is a very effective way to increase the power of your covert forces.
    • Upgrade Unit Production allows you to conscript soldiers from the local populace - each day this number of soldiers will join your forces.


    Your intelligence files are similar to your attack log, but they give you details of covert missions from and against you. Here you see details of Intercepted Intelligence Operations as well as Intelligence Files from missions you have conducted. Not all missions are intercepted and therefore you will not see everyone who has reconned you or sabotaged you. Not all recons or sabotages done by you were intercepted either, this is called "ghosting". When no missions are intercepted, that player has been "ghosted".


    Recruiting is an effective way for you to build your army's morale, which eventually results in new recruits. When you recruit for another player by completing the CAPTCHA on the recruit page, your army's morale increases and they receive one soldier. When another player recruits for you, your army's morale drops, but you gain a soldier. Recruiting proceeds in this order: you, your friends, other members of your alliance, then finally any other users with positive morale (ordered by greatest morale). This means that the greater your morale, the quicker it will be converted into extra recruits.

    Only logged-in players can turn your army's morale into new soldiers. Non-logged-in friends can still increase your army size by clicking your unique link, found in your Command Center. Click here to learn how to use your Unique Link to gain officers


    On this page you can see the details of your current troops, and you can hire mercenaries. Mercenaries can be hired as attack specialists, defence specialists, or all-purpose troops. Once hired, they cannot be retrained. Mercenaries cannot be spies, and do not contribute to the amount of gold you receive each turn, but they do boost your attack and/or defence strength (depending on what type of training they have). Mercenaries become available for hire randomly and their numbers are limited so there are often none available shortly after that. You can only have 25% of your army consisting of mercenaries. Mercenaries are added to your total fighting force (TFF) and they have to die to lower your TFF.

    Buddy List

    The buddy list can be used to keep track of people who you recognize as either neutral, friend, enemy, ignored or alliance members. You can recognize players via the drop down on their stats page. You are allowed a maximum of 180 players per buddy type. (Hopefully that's 180 friends, not 180 enemies!)


    The Logout option on the menu will log you out from Kings of Chaos. This is useful if your computer is used by more than one person, to prevent others from accessing your Kings of Chaos account. If you stop using the site for a length of time, you will be automatically logged out anyway - this is to help reduce the load on the extremely busy KoC webserver.


    The Send Message page is accessed from a user's stats page, by clicking on the Send Message button. You are then presented with a page which has areas for you to enter a subject and a message to be sent to that user.

    When someone has sent you a message in this fashion, you will notice the message indicator beneath the main menu will change to show how many new messages you have waiting for you. To read them, simply click on the red number and you will be taken to the Read Messages page. The most recent message will appear at the top of the page, with older messages beneath it in reverse order of receipt. You can use the buttons on the right to Reply to or Delete each message.

    Recent Logs

    This box indicates when you were last attacked, sabbed, or reconned. Even if a player ghosts you the last sabbed still indicates when someone sabbed you.


    The SAFE is a new bonus given to all players. As you build your Turn Based Gold 10% of the gold you make will be put into the SAFE. You DO NOT lose 10% of your TBG, the admins of KoC have decided to give this 10% to you as a bonus amount, a gift you might say. The more TBG the more gold you will receive in your SAFE.

    Econ Upgrades will also count towards your TBG and the 10% that accumulates in your SAFE. The race bonus does not add to the amount of gold that gets added to your SAFE.

    Daily Login/Activity Bonus

    Players now receive a daily login/activity bonus. Players will receive this bonus once per day, See below for bonus details.

    • Day 1: 100 Experience + 100 Soldiers
    • Day 2: 200 Experience + 200 Soldiers
    • Day 3: 300 Experience + 300 Soldiers
    • Day 4: 400 Experience + 400 Soldiers
    • Day 5: 500 Experience + 500 Soldiers
    • Day 6: 600 Experience + 600 Soldiers
    • Day 7: 1000 Experience + 1000 Soldiers

      After 7 days the bonus resets to Day 1.

    If you fail to login consecutively your bonus resets to Day 1.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much does this cost to play?
    Nothing. It's free. Kings of Chaos is completely supported by our advertisers. Enjoy!

    How do I get a bigger and better army?
    Click here to learn how to use your Unique Link

    How are rankings calculated? All players are ranked in each of the four categories of attack strength, defense strength, spy rating and sentry rating. These four rankings are added to give your overall ranking.

    What are the siege, fortification, and unit production levels?
    We'd rather not say, and let you find out on your own =)

    What happened to all my stuff?
    Era 3 has begun! At the beginning of each Era, we reset everyone's weaponry and army size to give everyone a fresh start. Now is the time to rebuild and prove yourself better than those around you!

    Why am I losing gold and soldiers?
    You are probably being attacked. Check your attack log to see who attacked you, how many soldiers they killed and how much gold they stole from you.

    How come I'm not listed in the rankings?
    Ranks are only recalculated once every hour, so you will have to wait until rankings are generated to appear on the rankings page.

    Why doesn't my rank improve when I get more weapons?
    Ranks are only recalculated once every hour, so you will have to wait to see how your ranking has been changed by upgrades or purchases.

    How are Alliance Rankings calculated?
    Alliances are ranked by summing 1/(userrank+1) for every member of the alliance who has set that alliance to be their primary alliance. Top 10 Alliances are ranked by members' overall rank, Fiercest Alliances are ranked by members' Strike Action rank, etc.

    Why can't I/my friends view the recruit page?
    Many AOL users cannot view our pages properly. We're sorry about the problem, and are looking into possible solutions. In order to get the most from our web pages we recommend the Mozilla Firefox web browser.

    It's hard to get people to click my link. Is there another way to gain recruits?
    The easiest way to gain recruits is to persuade friends to click your link, but you can also upgrade your Unit Production (on the Training page), and hire mercenaries to boost your army strength.

    Why don't I ever kill any enemy soldiers?
    The bigger your army, the more casualties you are likely to suffer. Armies small enough will not usually suffer casualties because this would hurt the army much more.

    How do I change my race?
    If you have played Kings of Chaos in a previous age, the first time you log in you will be asked to select the race you want to play for the rest of that age. If you are new you will choose your race when you register. You cannot change your race once you have begun playing in any particular Age without resetting your account.

    I forgot my password, what should I do?
    Go to this page and you can get your password emailed to you. Check your spam folder as well as your inbox, if you are still having trouble contact a game admin.

    Rank: Rank shows how well you are doing compared to all other armies in Kings of Chaos. Your rank is computed by adding your Strike Action, Defensive Action, Spy Rating, and Covert Rating. The person with the smallest sum will be ranked first, next smallest is second, etc. To achieve a high rank you must have good ratings in all four areas of the game.

    Recent Logs: This box indicates when you were last attacked, sabbed, or reconned. Even if a player ghosts you the last sabbed still indicates when someone sabbed you.

    Reconaissance (Recon): Using spies to learn about another player's personnel, weapons, and military effectiveness.

    Recruit Link: See Unique Link.

    Sabotage/Sabbed: Using spies to remove another player's weapons so they cannot be used in combat. All weapons or tools that have been successfully sabotaged are removed from your armory immediately.

    Sentry Rating: The strength of your counter-espionage forces. Based on the number of sentries in your army, and your spy level.

    Siege Technology: This contributes to the overall strength of all your attack troops and weaponry. The basic is "None" - it can be upgraded in the Armory.

    Spy Rating: The strength of your espionage forces. Based on the number of spies in your army, and your spy level.

    Spy Skill/Spy Level: The skill level of each individual spy and sentry in your army. Upgrading strengthens all of your spies and sentries.

    Stats Link: Can be found by clicking yourself on the attack page (battlefiled or BF) and checking in the address bar of your browser.

    Strike Action (SA): The total offensive power of your army. Based on your trained attack soldiers, untrained soldiers, mercenaries, their weapons, and your Siege Technology.

    Subofficer: One of your officers' officers, or their officer, etc.

    TimeStamp: TimeStamps have been added to attack and sabotage logs, you will now see year, month, date, hours, minutes, seconds of when you were attacked/sabbed.

    Tool: Purchasing tools increases the effectiveness of your spies or sentries. You can buy tools in the Armory.

    Total Fighting Force: The total number of your trained and untrained soldiers, plus any mercenaries you may have.

    Turn: The basic unit of time in Kings of Chaos. Currently you receive 1 attack turn every minute.

    Turn Based Gold (TBG): The gold you get each turn. Your TBG is based on how many soldiers are in your army, with certain races getting income bonuses. Soldiers contribute most to your TBG. Spies and sentries contribute less to your TBG. Mercenaries do not contribute towards TBG.

    Undead: One of the races in Kings of Chaos. Undead get a 35% sentry bonus and lose 50% fewer soldiers when attacked, making them a good protective race.

    Unique Link / Unique ID: The link used to increase your army's TFF by clicking on it. Give this to people to click! If they sign up as your officer you'll receive a 50 soldier bonus, a bonus soldier for every two they get, and a helpful ally! This link is found in your Command Center.

    Unit Production (UP): Upgraded Unit Production allows you to augment your TFF (total fighting force) by a set amount of soldiers every day. These soldiers will join your forces at the same time each day.

    Vacation Mode (vmode): An option to deactivate (suspend) your account for a length of time. Useful if you are going on a long trip and won't be able to play KoC during that time. Once you are in vacation mode you must wait until the time has elapsed before playing, so be careful. You receive no TBG (turn based gold), UP (unit production), recruit clicks or attack turns while in vacation mode. When your account comes out of vacation mode, you must wait until you are ranked before you can attack anyone.

    Weapons: Offensive or defensive equipment for soldiers in your army. Attack weapons are only used when you attack, defense weapons are only used when you defend. You can only use as many weapons as you have soldiers, and you can buy weapons in the Armory. Your soldiers are not very effective without weapons.

    Still have questions? If you have a question that wasn't answered in this guide, try heading over to the Kings of Chaos forum or the Kings of Chaos internet relay chat room (using the "forum" link or "chat" link at the top of every KoC page).
