Your Castle and Wonders of the World
Your castle offers you the chance to increase many different facets of your military or income. By spending resources, you can increase different parts of your castle to boost bonuses in the areas you want. Harbor and Towers maximum is a 40% bonus. Science maximum is a 20% bonus. Forges, Walls and Keep have a 30% maximum bonus. If you own a wonder, the current power of the wonder is also displayed here. Wonder power depends on the damage your realm does to a wonder and time into the round. Wonders take damage equal to the amount of UNMODIFIED offensive power attacking it. Wonders can not be repaired. All wonders will begin each round in realm 0, with a starting power of 250,000. Each dominion in a realm destroying a wonder that is not in realm 0 receives 100 prestige.
Castle Improvements
Part Improvement
Science: Extra resources is just what your alchemists need to increase their effectiveness. Using the resources you provide them, they will give you a bonus percentage to your income.
Keep: Increasing the size of your castle keep increases housing, and as such gives you a bonus percentage to your maximum population.
Towers: The towers are the mystical center of your castle. Adding resources to the towers means added tower construction, and thus a bonus to your wizard power. Towers also reduce the damage you take from spells, including Lightning Bolt, Fireball and Disband Spies.
Forges: Forges help to make the weapons you attack your enemies with. Stronger weapons mean a stronger military presence, thus boosting your offensive military power.
Walls: The key to any good castle defense, tall, strong walls help keep out invaders and protect you and your troops from harm. Adding resources to your walls increases your defensive military power.
Harbor: The seafaring community greatly appreciates all the resources you invest in making shipbuilding a priority. Adding resources to Harbor increases your overall food production, and the ship production and ship protection of Docks.
