Created based on information taken from the official script files. Some of the most useful and interesting information was found there and put into the interactive table for easier reading.

In these tables you can find values of different in-game stuff like parameters of creatures, buildings, trees and miracles. Most of them were not shown in any official guides, but can be very helpful in building own maps, creating strategies or choosing creatures.


These two tables show the detailed information about all buildings in the game. You can find this information in the "Tribes" part too, but here it is not divided into parts and it is easier to compare the prices. First table is about the buildings that are the same for all Tribes (like creche or graveyard), second part is about the living houses (which have different prices and other parameters).

Important information about the room for children in living houses. Actually, there can be ANY number of children in a house, even if there is no "official" place for them. For example, if an adult, living in a tiny house, will give birth to 5 children, they all will be bound to this house and will add influence to the village like 5 villagers. BUT! After they will grow up, they will go to search for their own houses and if there will be not enough empty ones, they will become homeless, and homeless give no influence at all. That is the reason why the influence may drop drastically without people actually dying. They simply grow up!

Formula for calculating the total added Influence from buildings (not counting the global multipliers of maps and towns):
(1 + number of adults living there + number of children living there) * health of the building * base Influence of the building
Like you see, even if nobody lives in the building, it still has a multiplier of "1" which is used in the formula. Every villager living in the building, adds another 1. Then this total number is multiplied by the health of the building (for example, it may be damaged or not finished) and only then the base Influence is used as the final multiplier. All living houses have base influence of 5, but because of the villagers inside the final number can actually become pretty big.

Example 1: Living house, not damaged, with 3 adults and 4 children:
(1 + 3 + 4) * 1 * 5 = 40

Example 2: Village Store damaged by 20%:
(1 + 0 + 0) * 0.8 * 45 = 36
