"Wall: The walls guarding the land approaches to Constantinople withstood intermittent assault over a period of a thousand years."

    "Gate: The portcullis, a common type of gate, was a heavy metal grid raised by a winch. The narrow passage beyond kept breaching troops vulnerable to attack."


    • Build walls to block enemy access to your castle. Walls are hard to knock down without siege weapons, so set up towers to fortify and defend them.
    • Gates allow roads to pass through walls keeping trade routes connected. When a road is on either side of a wall piece, it can be converted into a gate. Increase your wealth by building roads while protecting the castle with gates.
    • Walls protect your castle from rushes with foot soldiers and mounted units. They are built and upgraded instantly, but a free worker is needed. They can be converted into a gate, if a road ends on either side.

    • Protects inside of castle.
