Age 6 - 'Balance of Power'

Age 6 is titled 'Balance of Power'. It will begin at 12 AM, Wednesday, November 26, 2008.

Changes from Age 5.

  • Paladins that are at home now give a +25% casualty reduction, up from +10%
  • The Strength and Vitality attributes are now less effective at low levels and more effective at high levels. They now obey the following equation:

God Changes

  • Frey's god power now increases farm food production by 15 per 1,000 GP, down from 20 per 1,000 GP
  • Thor no longer receives 2 free points of Strength per level, and instead starts with 2 levels of Discipline.

Miscellaneous Changes

  • Items only hang around the kingdom marketplace for 72 hours now, down from 7 days
  • Attackers can find 1 to 2 attribute points when attacking now, similar to how explorers can find attribute points when exploring
  • Experience gains from exploration have been tweaked. They are now much higher when your city is small and much lower when your city is large (compared to previous ages).
  • Divine Learning's effectiveness has been doubled
  • Gefjun's Blessing now increases population growth rate by 3%, up from 2% last age
  • Also, I will really really try to get more quests in the game this age. I'll be posting on the suggestions forum a bit over the next couple days.
  • Finally, I'll be doing a bit of advertising this age. Be nice to the newbies ;)
  • The research area "Intelligence" has had its name changed to "Discipline"
