Settlements are the backbone of your realm. Every three villages acquired in your domain will enable you to upgrade one of them to the town level, provided that 6 or more slots are occupied in that village. The first upgrade must take place in the capital.
Complete the relevant project on the Projects tab to start an upgrade. Once the upgrade is complete, the number of slots in the settlement will increase to 20, and the list of buildings will expand. Three or more towns in your realm and at least 16 occupied building slots in the capital will enable you to upgrade the capital to city.
You may base new settlements in your regions on discovered crossroads. Find and click on the location where you want a new settlement to be founded. The map generated is dependent on what location is chosen and while you don't get docks or lighthouses in inland maps they do allow for larger contiguous areas.
The cost of founding a new settlement is 50 BP. As soon as this has been paid, you may name the new village or keep its default name.
