Resources

From Old World Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists an overview of the types of resources that can be found. The game distinguishes between tradeable, non-tradeable and per-city resources. Both tradeable and non-tradeable resources are global, so they can be accessed and used anywhere in your empire. In addition, tradeable resources can be bought or sold using gold, but non-tradeable resources can not be bought or sold. Per-city resources are specific to the city they are generated in, and cannot be transferred from one city to another city.
