Game InfoEdit

Bonus resource.

  • Base yield:
    • 1 20xProduction5 Production
  • Modifiers:


Stone is the only bonus resource meant specifically to enhance 20xProduction5 Production, and it does this well. It's found on many terrain types, and when upgraded with a Quarry provides a serious boost to production (+1 from the resource, +2 additional from the Quarry).

Stone is one of two resources that allows construction of a Stone Works in a nearby city, which nets another point of 20xProduction5 Production. It also produces 20xfaith5 Faith with the Belief Stone Circles.

Historical InfoEdit

Found in the Earth's crust and upper mantle, stone is perhaps the most crucial element in human construction efforts throughout history. There are three major classifications of stone - Sedimentary, Igneous, and Metamorphic - each differing in their origin.
