The Wall is a tiled castle structure.

DescriptionEdit

Walls are tall, strong structures that are mainly used to seal off territories and restrict enemy movement. They can be built in linear blocks and also provide access to towers and gatehouses. Walls themselves are accessible through stairs from the ground.

They can provide basic defense to other buildings and are optionally scaleable by troops, who gain a height advantage doing so. A multitude of defense accessories can be placed on walls (such as braziers) to further enhance their combat capabilities.

ContentsEdit

Walls are a well-known part of structures and settlements since the advent of humanity.

City states in the Ancient times had important buildings, palaces serving as a main hub: storage for goods, political institute for exerting control and a cultural interest point. As a result, this building's significance made it the most vulnerable of all and it required the utmost defensive measures from the court. Walls were a simple means of making break-ins harder and soon became necessary to provide unfathomable advantages to the defensive garrison. Walls were initially made of earth and wood, however stone proved to be the most effective and durable material for constructing them.

Walls were often supported with other components such as towers, bastions and gates. They got additional features to cover and help the defenders as much as possible, such as arrowslits and other holes to pour hot liquids through them. As a result, they were very hard to break by conventional human tools, so it required the use of mechanic siege devices and explosives. Catapults, tunnels and later cannons were invaluable in this task. Walls had particular significance till late 19th century.

FunctionalityEdit

Walls are tall and can be built in linear arrays. They can connect gatehouses and towers. From the ground, they are accessible through stairs, another gatehouse, a ladder or a siege tower. Multiple wall lines can be built next to each other, granting theoretically infinite thickness.

Foot soldiers can mount walls, who gain height advantage. Attacks coming from lower ground have a miss chance and lower damage on units in elevated positions. Braziers can also be placed on walls, which allows for the shot of fiery arrows for archers and Arabian bowmen.

Walls may be damaged by melee attacks, battering ram bashes and catapulted rocks, of which the latter causes collateral damage to adjacent structures. If a wall segment is damaged, it becomes lower in height but does not drop any units atop. Stones may fly over damaged walls or even crush units on it. They can be repaired by simply erecting a new wall line over it.

VariantsEdit

Low wallEdit

The low wall is cheaper than the average wall, but only is half height and thus withstands less punishment. Also allows the access to towers. Can be outfitted with a low-height crenulated wall.

Normal wallEdit

The standard wall. Can be outfitted with a standard-height crenulated wall.

CrenellationEdit

A special type of wall, which can be sited next to regular walls, granting limited personal cover in a zig-zag pattern for troops behind. The most expensive wall type.

TriviaEdit

  • Although mounted units cannot enter walls through normal means, they will scale them if they come out fresh from the barracks/mercenary post and their assembly point is only reachable through the wall line.

FunctionalityEdit

Walls are tall and come in two forms: wooden and stone. They can be built in linear arrays. They can connect gatehouses and towers. From the ground, they are accessible through a stairwell, another gatehouse, a ladder or a siege tower. Multiple wall lines can be built next to each other, granting theoretically infinite thickness.

Foot soldiers can mount wall, who gain height and range advantage. A number of defensive tools may be installed atop or in the front of wall segments, such as rock baskets, stone tippers and rolling logs. Braziers are also available for these purposes.

Walls may be damaged by tunnels and catapulted rocks, of which the latter causes collateral damage to adjacent structures. Wooden walls can be also damaged by melee attacks, but they do not knock off units. If a wall segment is damaged, it becomes lower in height as well as units atop are sent flying off. Stones may fly over damaged walls or even crush units on it. They can be repaired by simply erecting a new wall line over it.

VariantsEdit

Wooden wallEdit

The simplest and cheapest pallisade available early on. It provides basic defense, however it is very weak and can be removed very fast.

Stone wallEdit

Stone walls are standard structures and they provide great defense against foot units. Siege engines may attack them, but even they need several shots to create a breach. Stonr walls can be erected in single, double and triple thickness forms. They are merely varying in erecting thickness and all consist the same type of stone wall.
