Towns may be founded on plains. A town attracts more population than other fields and promises a higher gold income due to higher tax rates. A town not only brings taxes, but allows nearby castles to recruit up to 15 % of the towns' population for the training of your armies. In difference to castles and harbours, the growth-bonus is limited to the population of just the town itself.

Towns have an increased defense against attackers; furthermore, horsemen are hindered in towns similar to mountains and castles. Towns also allow the splitting of armies.

The construction of towns requires a minimum distance to castles, harbours and other towns!

Hints by experienced players

Towns should be build within 2 fields distance to a castle; only this allows for the recruitement of the town-population for armies. At the beginning of the Age, however, the building of a city is not advisable because of high material consumption.
