Technical Information

Palace is a building found in Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom.

Background Edit

The Palace is an administrative building which allows for the creation of a fort. Other than the ability to build a second fort, without needing Elite Housing, the Palace is generally not necessary.

However, the Palace includes a Menagerie, which houses captured or requested animals. Some missions require the player to have a specific number of animals housed in the Menagerie, which requires the Palace to exist. Care must be taken in such missions, for a labour shortage or destruction of the Palace will result in all animals inside the Menagerie escaping, necessitating their re-capture or being killed and re-requested.
