Rise of the Kai

Doubt not your purpose nor your strength, for inside you there burns a flame that can light the hopes of future men for all time.’

"Magnamund. A world of myth and fable, where teeming oceans and tranquil forests coexist with harsh desert and violent volcanism, born out of the epic struggle between the cosmic gods Ishir and Naar. A world on the brink of disaster.

"For almost eight long centuries, the forces of Naar have been at work, with the intent of erasing all natural life in Magnamund as a sacrifice to their dark master by an infernal blend of technology and sorcery, thwarted only by the death of their greatest champion, Darklord Vashna, in an apocalyptic battle against their mortal foe, the Sommlendings. Magnamund may breathe a sigh of …

Rise of the Kai/Civic Centre

In Kings & Conquerors, the Civic Centre takes the place of the vanilla Library and handles fundamental groundbreaking research, which then feeds into new technologies, buildings and of course new units. Generally, each new game begins with a Civic Centre already set up, so all that is required is to obtain resources required to buy the research the library has to offer.

There are five paths of research in the Civic Centre: Magic , Commerce , Civic , and Military , as well as three trunk technologies. Each one of them is a prerequisite for further research, which in turn might contribute towards bettering your units and even the stylistic appearance of your faction's buildings!


  • 1 Trunk technologies
  • 2 Scientific research
  • 3 Commerce research
  • 4 Civics research
  • 5…

Rise of the Kai/Buildings and Upgrades

How is this mod treated?\

It borrows heavily from Kings & Conquerors



  • Knowledge is replaced by influence
  • The military and civic lines are from Rise of Kings

  1. Astrology and horology
  2. Mathematics
  3. Mage guilds

Influence research:

  • Surveyors
  • Advisor…
