The town center[1] is the Kingdom main structure, with which the Monarch founds and manages most of the Kingdom. Upon the start of a new Kingdom, the Monarch comes across two vagrants around an unlit campfire and a few building outlines. Once the price to light the campfire at the center is paid, the Kingdom is founded and base construction can begin.

After the campfire is ignited, the outlined buildings are automatically upgraded into tool vendors. Nearing the end of the first night, the campfire can be upgraded to the next tier, a full camp with tents. There are a total of six tiers in Classic and New Lands; and seven in Two Crowns. Most upgrades bring bonuses for the Kingdom.

In New Lands and Two Crowns a ghost guides the Monarch through these starting tasks. The pictures show the medieval variants of the buildings. The shogun versions look quite different.

Tax ChestEdit

For the trunk spawning in the ruins, see Treasure Chest.
Classic Kingdom: Classic only.

At the beginning of every day, the monarch can collect the taxes from the chest. Passing by the box, galloping or walking, triggers its opening and the coins drop on the ground. The chest disappears just after this, to repeat the same sequence the next day.

The tax chest is unlocked when the Monarch lights the campfire and the amount of gold gained from the chest goes down as the camp upgrades, reaching only 1 coin at the maximum level.


Classic Kingdom: Classic: The stone fortifications, while giving you many upgrades for free, also drastically reduces the daily income of coins. The longer you can go with the town hall, the farther ahead you'll be.

New Lands Kingdom: New Lands and Two Crowns Kingdom: Two Crowns: It is a good idea to not build or upgrade the innermost walls and just get the stone- and iron technology (if available) first; and then upgrade the town center.


Date Game Update Change(s)

  1. Also known as the starting camp, base, town hall, castle, or keep.
  2. Dev says "Turns out we remove this feature", 22 Nov 2016, on a Steam forum; and "Does that option never appear, even past level 2?", one year later, on another Steam forum.
