Tallica, did you read points 6 and 7 under sacrifices?


Thanks, must have over-looked that in my excitement.

Interesting idea, but it would probably have a higher penalty as the armies might well notice you slipping out with the whole city...

How about you take only basic buildings when under siege, Ie basic production, and store house.

On another note when is the new food V.s. tax system coming in. Could we have it in a few weeks from now, so that we've had time to re-set up our cities, geomancy etc. by the way, what happens to mana and research points?

Good point...I think the wall should always be left behind, regardless of "environmental situations."  Leaving that, one might argue that the exodus would have considerable cover, particularly if the army were required to attack any camps at (about) the same time (in reality, it could be attacks that must return before the city actually leaves, or they could return to the city's original location then disappear as "back in town").

future considerations must mean faster siege equipment., it currently takes 12 hrs to set up a siege, the town would be 60 squares away, unless you are setting up leading the target

Level 20 Warehouse is crazy. Level 12 should be enough.

also is the reduction a full loss of the level or does demolition have to be researched as well returning resources?

(should demolition be a preq for exodus?)

do spells cooldown during the move?
can a moving city be targeted by diplos, spells while moving (could be used somewhat defensivied for smaller towns.
Does it auto dispell blights that have been cast against the city?
is there a setup time for the move
is there a cooldown time from the previos move  (looks like 5 days)
Can caravans be sent to the moving city?

So we build WH to 20 to get the tech only to have it knocked down to 12 when we move?  Kinda pointless...
