The town ablaze

Town is your main hub and home base. Initially destroyed, you have the opportunity to gradually restore and improve the Town, to increase its levels and attract more people to return there. All the quest givers, crafting stations, and stores can also be found there.

The Town's default name is Rivercrest since version 1.3, although you will be prompted to rename it at the start of the game. There is currently no option to change this at a later point.

To construct a building, you must approach a lot and pay the resource cost. A specific type of building costs more depending on the number of similar buildings already in your town. For instance, if you already have a Smithy, your next Smithy will come at an increased cost. Note that Houses, Dwellings, and Homesteads are all counted together for costs. They are different in appearance only, with minor variation in build times.

Town Level[edit]

The Town is leveled up by gaining enough Prestige to reach certain thresholds.

Level Prestige to Reach Level
1 0
2 500
3 2000
4 3500
5 4500
6 4500
7 6000
8 7500
9 10500
10 23500

Prestige is earned by building and upgrading Buildings and obtaining Decorations. When constructing a building, you gain 75 Prestige for each lot it takes. Thus the various types of home give 75 and the shops give 150. Bonuses are given for building over Ruined Buildings. Each lot cleared is worth an additional 125 Prestige over the last one. This table represents the total Prestige gained when constructing the building, already factoring in the 75 per lot mentioned above.
