Power to the brotherhood!
Lead the monks into the fight against unholy settlers before evil spreads!
The dark age has cast a spell over you! You find yourself in a small monastery, surrounded by pagan settlements and hostile monastic orders. Besides brewing and baking bread, it’s your daily task to convert as many souls as possible. You deal in sacred writings, say Masses and sometimes convince one or two townsmen by force of arms. This is the only way to recruit enough monks. With their manpower, you will lead the monastery to wealth and prestige. Step by step you acquire the necessary respect of your brothers. You need to economize wisely and deliver the necessary spiritual assistance to the residents of the settlements in order to be a successful leader. Build an empire, fight for every piece of land and protect the believers from the claws of the black monks! Never forget: faith alone can’t move mountains!

Depending on the mission, you start with at least one storehouse. You can buy important resources, e.g. stones, there, but you can also sell produced goods to get gold. You need to erect buildings in order to produce. Make sure that you have a working production flow! In Townsmen 4, it's also important that you have enough monks. By upgrading buildings, you can speed up their production, expand their storage and enable the buying and selling of additional goods. The display on top of the screen shows important information. On the left, there's the current day and next to it you can find the number of monks that work in your buildings. The next number visualizes how many monks serve you and at the far right, there's the current amount of gold.
