Castellation upgrades the level of your keep. This provides better basic defence for your castle by increasing the rate at which it fires arrows at attackers. Each level of research requires the player to be of a higher rank than at the previous level, and opens up the Fortification, Vaults, Defences, Construction and Sally Forth branches of research.
Fortification allows access to new castle structures, which can be used to build better defences surrounding the player’s castle. These structures include Wooden Walls, Wooden Gatehouses, Wooden Platforms, Stone Walls, Lookout Towers, Small Towers, Gatehouses, Large Towers and Great Towers. This research can be started at Rank 1.
Vaults increase the length of the pillage timer, which means it takes the enemy longer to find the goods from a pillaging attack, and therefore, more time in which they can be defeated by the defending player's archers etc. This research can be started at Rank 1.
Defences increases the protection of archers on walls and towers, and also provides access to other defence technologies. These technologies include basic Guard Houses, Killing Pits, Wooden Guard Houses, Oil Smelters and Oil Pots, Moat, Stone Guard Houses and Guard Houses with Iron Hoardings. This research can be started at Rank 1.
Sally Forth enables a knight to ride out from the keep to defend against attacking troops. Further research increases the number of knights which can sally forth, up to a maximum of 10. This research can be started at Rank 12.
Command increases the maximum size of an army which can be recruited from a single village, up to a maximum of 500 troops. It also gives access to the Conscription, Long Bow, Pike, Sword, Catapult, Captains and Tactics branches of research. This research can be started at Rank 1.
Scouts gives access to scouts, which can be recruited from the units screen, and also gives access to the Foraging and Horsemanship branches of research. Further research increases the number of scouts which can be recruited, up to a maximum of eight (8). This research can be started at Rank 1, but each level of research requires the player to be of a higher rank than at the previous level.
Ransacking increases the number of buildings which can be destroyed when attacking other villages, up to a maximum of eight (8). This research can be completed at Rank 1, once the first level of Pillaging research has been completed.
Leadership allows players to increase the number of villages they can own. This research can be started at rank 12, and completed at rank 23. Please note that only Leadership up to and including level 13 are shown on the Leadership tree until the player reaches rank 23. Once a player has reached rank 23 (Crown Prince), further Leadership research is shown as well as the accompanying degree of the Crown Prince rank required to complete each additional level of Leadership research.
