Town

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. For each level of a town, population growth is increased by 0.5% in the town itself but also on the 6 adjacent fields.

A town not only brings taxes, but allows nearby castles within a distance of 2 fields to recruit up to 15 % of the town's population for the training of your armies.

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!

Expansion of a Town by Slots

To better defend a town against sieges and to increase the output of your fields, towns can be expanded using slots. In the building menue, when a town is selected, slots can be filled with extensions when the respective research has been finished. Depending on the level of a town, more or less slots can be filled. Each expansion can only be built once with the exception of ballistas and mangonels.

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.
