General Information[edit | edit source]

There are different forms of Obstacles in the game. The main ones are annoyances such as trees, rocks, and oil seeps. You cannot construct buildings on space occupied by Obstacles or move Buildings there. Some Obstacles, such as Ruins that have been investigated, can be moved.

When clearing Forests, you may find trees, rocks, or other beneficial Obstacles that you can clean up to receive Food, Gold, or other bonuses such as Metal or Crowns. Obstacles with rewards such as these include Locked Chests, Amphora, Ruins, and Gold Deposits. Obstacles take one citizen to clear, except for Gold Deposits, which take two.

Periodic Obstacles Growth

Between logins and loading screens, trees will grow in empty spaces. Also, once you build an Oil Refinery after reaching the Enlightenment Age, Oil will periodically seep out of the ground as time passes (you have to have an Oil Refinery and be in the Enlightenment Age for this to happen). Trees and oil seeps will only grow/seep up on the south eastern and south western borders of your town.
