More about the role of Scrolls when constructing the Clan Stronghold
To construct the Clan Stronghold, you need common resources (1B Food, 1B Lumber, 750M Iron, 1B Stone, 250M Silver) and Scrolls (10K). To upgrade the Clan Stronghold, you need transformed resources (Ale, Lumber, Steel, Plates, Thoriars) and Scrolls.
The Clan Chief stores resources and Scrolls for the Stronghold's construction in their Town. Usually, clansmen help the Chief: they use the "Send resources" button to send convoys with the necessary amount of resources and Scrolls to the Chief's Town. Remember that the Chief's Town can be attacked and collected resources can be plundered, but Scrolls will remain untouched.
Until the Clan Stronghold is constructed, the Chief can track the resources and Influence they have and how much they still need. As soon as the Clan has enough Influence, resources, and Scrolls for the Stronghold's construction, the Clan Chief will be able to start construction in the selected place.
After the Clan Stronghold is constructed, you need to send Scrolls to the Clan building – the Resource Storage. The weight of one Scroll equals one unit of capacity. There's no tax for sending Scrolls. Data about collected resources and Scrolls for the Clan Stronghold construction is displayed in the Clan section in the Clan Stronghold tab.
Now that you know everything about special items, it's time to upgrade buildings and learn Knowledge. As a reward for these actions, you get not only bonuses but Influence points and Hero's and Shaman's experience as well. By studying Drafts and enhancing an Aes, you increase your chances of victory in battles. Go for it!
