A major and necessary part of your realm,
Housing provides your people with quality
land on which to live. While all land can and will house a few people, Homes bring in
quite a few more peasants than other options.
These house your people, these are extremely important because they give you money,
and a large population to draft soldiers from, you should have from 27-30% of your
land in homes. The major downside to homes is they can be attacked by magic and
thieves, so if you can't protect them, you better have another source of income.
Houses 50 People
Because mining is a fairly stable and self-sufficient
operation, Mines provide you with a
small but steady source of income that is not affected by your population or economy as

income. Since money is everything, its a good idea to have some of these.

By building Plazas for the peasantry to build
their own stores, shops, and markets, you
can employ more people within your lands and thus increase your potential tax revenues.
These buildings help you to achieve full employment within your lands by employing
about four times the people of an average building (except Homes, which employ no
These help employ your peasants, so if your employment rating is low, you need more
of these. The problem with plazas is they only employ 2 times as much as other
buildings, therefore, there not really worth haveing alot of.

Food is vital to the growth of any and every
province. Without it, your peasants and

farms, or you will find your province quickly fall to ruins.

down, and your not getting food from another source (ex: plundering or thieves)

you will find many of your soldiers wounded, but not killed. Without Hospitals, these
men will often perish without treatment. With them, your men may be saved.

your army much.

Alas, Wizards are needed to cast your spells,
and Wizards can only be trained at these
Guilds. Developing a powerful army of Wizards takes time and patience, as well as many
of these Guilds.
Guilds make wizards, which cast your spells. Its a good idea to have some of these
weither or not you plan to use magic, for wizards protect you from magic. If you want
to be good in magic have at least 10% of you land in guilds. Also, EACH guild has a
1% chance of making a wizards, so if you have 100 guilds you have 100 1% chances,
NOT a 100% chance.

Your Towers serve as a locale for your wizards
and mages to work to develop runes.
They allow you to produce runes each day, without regard to your economy or people.

you have no interest in magic, or get enough runes other ways (ex: plunder and thieves)
do not build these.

In order to attack provinces on other kingdoms, you will need boats to
military. Each shipyard gives you a 1.5% chance to build a boat. You'll need 1 boat for
each 100 troops you need to transport. Your shipyards will stop constructing boats
once you have enough to carry an army twice your current size.
If you want to attack people on other islands, which you'll almost always want to do,
you better build some of these. They build ships just like guilds train wizards. 2-5% of
you land is more than enough, depending upon you race and millitary.
