Hello! I'm actually not really a first time player, but my first travian experience was years ago, and I just picked it up again a couple months ago. I've been playing solo, and now with 4 villages and 1500+ population, I really want to join an alliance and help an alliance getting an artifact... but I'm too shy to approach any nearby :'D I play the Gaul. My playing style is rather defensive, focusing on building and resource gathering.
Please message me on travian if you're interested. My account name over there is also aphindonesia.
