Building Types

Adding buildings to a city is one of the most efficient ways to enhance your kingdom’s statistics, as each block of buildings added to a city in your kingdom grants a specific bonus. Descriptions of each of these buildings, as well as the bonuses it provides once it’s added to a city, are listed below. The building’s BP cost and any prerequisite buildings that must be built first are listed in parentheses after its name. The building’s benefit to the city and kingdom once it is constructed is listed last in italics. If a building affects Unrest, it does so only once, when it is first constructed. A fair amount of additional residential structures are common amid most one- and two-block structures.
