Elasund? The little settlement on the coast? Well, those days are long gone. Elasund is now growing rapidly and more and more Catanians are streaming into the city, eager to make their fortune! You have just been appointed to help the city expand. Now you drive the city's growth and prosperity forward. You have already hired workers and acquired building materials. What will your next building project be? And, just as important, where will it be? You are not the only developer in town, so you will need to be savvy and resourceful. Your competition is eager to outperform you and claim all of the credit!
Fortunately, you'll get the hang of this business quickly. Despite having limited resources early on you have enough gold to construct your first few small buildings. Your influential connections will provide you with all the necessary building permits. In Elasund, nothing is constructed without building permits! Once a building is constructed, it can start generating gold or influence for your use. Soon this flow of materials will allow you start going after bigger projects! You may even become involved in the construction of the town church or the city walls.
But beware of your competitors! They may try to leverage their way into your neighborhood with their own permits! If you don't watch them closely enough, they might even attempt a hostile takeover of your buildings! Will you emerge as Elasund's most influential city developer? Find out in this new Catan adventure!
