The Outpost is a building that is used to claim territories. It is the only building the player can build on a territory they do not own. It can be manned by both swordmen and bowmen, like the Trading Post. It will always cost 10 wood and 200-1500 gold to build. Its health bar is replenished when the player moves soldiers on it. It costs 10 stone and 100 gold to upgrade and replenishes torches. Players are able to take the outpost for themselves and destory all trails/roads and enemy buildings on the territory if the outpost's health is low enough.
As bowmen have an advantage on an outpost against other bowmen, assuming the enemy bowmen are on the ground and their reputation is roughly the same as the defending bowmen, players can use it as a checkpoint against attacking soldiers or as a place to go back to when they are attacking.
The AI of the enemy sometimes will send all its soldiers in groups at your outpost if it is too close to their territory, and the player can use this to cause the enemy to run out of gold by continuously defending the territory.
- If a territory is not claimed by another faction, the player can build an outpost on it even if another faction has buildings on the territory.
- If the player demolishes an outpost, it will result in all trails/roads and all their buildings on the outpost being destroyed as well and will only give the player back 10 wood instead of 10 wood and gold.
