Each City also produces 1 Gold.
These are used up for upkeep, settling , building, recruiting, and upgrading.

Gain 1 extra gold resource for each level in economics you have.
Gain 1 extra luxury resource for each level in industry you have.

When you use up a resource, remove one of your resource tokens from
the map or the common resource pool trait chart.

space on the common resource pool trait chart until this requirement is met.

A city will be reduced to a village by famine. However if it has a
Monument, the Monument will remain!

To do this, you must use up 2 Food and 1 Stone plus any 1 resource for
every other Monument already located in that city.
You cannot Build more total Monuments than 1 + your Level in Religion.
You may convert a Villages Token into a city token.
To do this, you must use up 2 Luxuries and 1 Stone.
Max 1 city per space.
You may build 1 Villages Token for free each turn.
Villages are placed in empty Land spaces next to spaces
occupied by your cities, villages, or fleets.
You may place additional villages Tokens (1 max per space) but each extra
village placed in a turn requires you to use up 1 Food or Luxury Resource and
1 Wood or Stone Resource.

Each side rolls 1D8 and adds their Military level (if on land) or Nautical
level (if at sea). The lower roll discards 1 unit. Defender wins ties.
If the defender loses all his units, and then the settlement is also defeated, the
settlement (village or city) is captured by the invader.
Replace the settlement with one of the invaders color.
You may recruit Armies and Fleets.
Each Army requires you to use up 1 Iron.
Each Fleet Requires you to use up 1 Wood.

research points (RP) in that trait is reset to zero.
