Dragon issue 125 for population and cash, taxes.
and the old blue book for dnd, for armies and fighting. All so very basic. any ideas guys? what might i add to build up a fantastic empire, fantasy, game?

Do you want a set of rules for constructing a sensible kingdom? Do you want a single-player game where you develop despite randomly generated obstacles? Or perhaps a multiplayer game with a GM who helps the players generate a universe?

hmm it would be for a gaming group. We had home brew rules, back in the day. It was great, but that was years ago, and have none of the rules anymore.

But for a GM, and a group, as sensible as can be, but still fun, you have any suggestions?

Your best bet is Fields of Blood- The book of War


Gives lots of good rules for use with 3.P for running an empire/kingdom based game, and even converting current campaigns over to it

The old Birthright boxed set from TSR has much and more that may interest you. It's AD&D stuff, but I believe there's a fan conversion to 3.x lurking in the darker holes of the web somewhere.

WWW.birthright.net. has a 3.something birthright rulebook in pdf that you can download. I've used it for our group many times, and while it requires a few tweaks to work in a non-birthright game, the rulership and war rules can be used in pretty much any d&d game.
