The following structures may be built by characters with the Construction  skill:
kind effort material skill where ---- ------ -------- ----- ----- inn 300 75 wood 125 province or city mine 500 25 wood 125 or 129 mountain or rocky hill temple 1,000 50 stone 125 anywhere tower 2,000 100 stone 125 anywhere castle 10,000 500 stone 125 province or city
The term `
anywhere' means a province, city, or other sublocation.
Buildings may not be built inside other buildings, with the exception of
towers. Up to six towers may be built inside a castle.
Effort is in worker-days.
The builder must know the required skill, have at least three workers, and possess at least one-fifth of the necessary construction materials in his inventory.
To start building, unstack from beneath other characters and issue one
of the following
build inn"name of inn"
build mine"name of mine"
build temple"name of temple"
build tower"name of tower"
build castle"name of castle"
For example, a character who wanted to build a tower would need to know Construction , have at least three workers , and possess at least 20 stone .
The construction materials will immediately be deducted from the builder's inventory and put to use. The builder and his workers will be placed inside the new structure.
The remaining construction materials are paid as work on the structure progresses. A second fifth is required as the building becomes 20% complete, the third fifth at 40%, etc. Construction halts if the builder runs out of materials.
The building is completed when the required number of worker-days is invested in construction.
To resume construction of a partially completed building, first enter
the structure, then issue the appropriate build order (such as
build mine, etc.)
Mines may only be built in mountain provinces or on rocky hills. Only one mine per location is allowed. Mines may also be built by characters with the Mining  skill.
Only one castle may be built in each province. The castle may be built either in the province or a city, if the province has one. Castles may not be built sub-locations other than cities.
