Convent (Type: Town)

As new settlers were converted, and the colonies multiplied, churches began building compounds where their religious teachers could train new believers, live holy lives, and copy sacred writings.  Naturally, towns quickly grew up around these places of worship.

You cannot build a Convent directly.  You may only establish a Convent by upgrading one of your Camps.

  • While Convents may be constructed on coastal intersections, they must always touch at least one land hex. They may be built on a harbor or fish shoal.
  • Boats can depart from a Convent constructed on a coastal intersection, but Ships cannot load/unload/set sail from a Convent.
  • Each Convent has one (1) sloped roof and one (1) flat roof, so it can harvest one (1) Resource Card and one (1) Resource Token.
