Advancing from the stone age introduces a player to the beginnings of classical and medieval technologies. Properly entering the iron age – that is to say they can make the tools and armour associated with it – requires first that a forge has been built. Forges facilitate the process of smithing the various instruments of resource gathering and warfare made from iron. However, once unlocked, a plethora of new opportunities become available: Access to coal and steel making, lumber mills for cutting stumps into planks, grinding wheat into flour by use of a grain mill, and much more.
