Development

Population[edit | edit source]

How does the population grow?

  • Your population is determined by a number of factors.. one being max pop which is determined by your cottages. then loyalty and taxrate have an affect. Taxes affect loyalty. Higher loyalties will increase your current population in relation to max pop. Low loyalty will Lower your current pop. Using prayer and disaster relief increase loyalty which are helpful.

I sometimes use the comfort 100% tax technique. However, even though loyalty is at 100%, if I train troops, the population does not seem to come back, and population growth halts, any ideas?

  • If your tax is set at 100% population does not regrow. If you need population to go up reduce your tax rate.

Cities[edit | edit source]

How do I build a new city?

  • To build a new city you must first conquer a flat of any level. Then you must have 250 workers and 10,000 of each resource including gold. Select the conquered flat, click the Build City button and after some time your new city will be erected! This information is in-game as well, hover over the little fort icon at bottom right of your interface.

Is there a limit to how many cities you can build?

  • The number of cities a player can control is based on their title. The maximum number of cities allowed is 10. You must have the title of Prinzessin.

How do you destroy a building?

  • No you do not. You only need one to be in an alliance but having one in each town means that allies can garrison troops in your town which might be necessary if attacked.

Can players trade cents?

  • Short answer... no.
