Armies are the means by which you sieze cities, rob wildlands, and participate in Explore.
There are four basic troops, each one with four progressively higher upgrades.
- Infantry: Your basic melee unit
- Archers: Ranged units
- Cavalry: Fast melee units on horses
- Mages: Slow-moving ranged magic units
Troops require population to build. These are achieved by upgrading your cottage and waiting for population to grow.
There were also mercenaries, but they are currently unavailable (due to an update). As of this writing, Ideachannel has not announced whether or not they will re-instate the mercenary system.
