Description Edit | History

From far away, the adventurers have come to the island with the golden city in its center. Just arrived, they open up the first shop directly at the coast. Already it is possible to open up other ones in the villages along the street connections.

That's worth it because through that you'll get goods, keys, money, and concessions that you need for getting ahead. And finally the first is able to establish himself in the golden City and thus get the most precious trading contracts.

The Gold Trilogy

Part one of "The Gold Trilogy" (besides Valdora and Felinia)

13 The Golden City - Key Reminder Wall - v.1.0
This is v.1.0 of a print and cut reminder wall for The Golden City / Die Goldene Stadt that I made ages ago and never posted. This can be assembled and disassembled for easy setup and storage with the game. Never forget that you need to give up a key card to build into the inner section of the city again.
