Structures which may aid fighters in battle are rated for their defensive bonus.
Castle Imperius [gx56], castle, defense 25
During battle, the fortification rating is added to the defense number for the men who fit inside the structure.
structure men protected --------- ------------- Castle first 500 Tower first 100 Galley or roundship first 50 Other structures first 50
Attacking fighters may randomly select the structure instead of an enemy fighter. The attack is resolved in the same way as for two fighters, using the attacker's attack rating and the structure's defense rating. If the attacker is successful the structure's defense rating will be lowered by one point.
Once the defense rating reaches zero, further hits will cause the building to become damaged. A fully damaged building (100% damage) will collapse, ejecting its occupants.
Siege engines always select the structure as a target.
engine attack defense missile ------ ------ ------- ------- catapult 25 200 25 battering ram 30 250 siege tower 30 250
Siege engines do 5-10 points of damage to the structure per hit.
Siege engines are not used in combat at sea.
