The Hanseatic League (also known as Hansa Teutonica) was a medieval alliance between
merchant guilds of cities in lower Germany which expanded soon into the North Sea
and Baltic Sea area. Many of the participating cities became very powerful and
proudly called themselves Hansa cities.
Players compete for wealth and prestige as merchants in the Hanseatic League. There
are many opportunities to do so: They may set up a network of branch offices in as
many cities as possible, but they should also develop their talents and trading skills
to become successful merchants.
Developing such trading skills allows players to become more efficient in their
activities. They may gain additional actions, higher income, new privileges, and
improved prestige point return. Developing your preferred profile will bring you in
an advantageous position for your strategy against the other players.
Hansa Teutonica is very open to your concepts and gives you the freedom you need to
accomplish your way to the top. Clever use of traders, perpetual observation of your
opponents activities, continuous improvement of your skills and the right use of
prestiguous activities are the key to become the most successful merchant in the
history of the Hanse.
