Cathedral, or in the civic buildings of the city. Each artwork requires
money and resources to complete. To earn the money and resources the

workshops, possibly even in their opponents’ districts. Additional
workers can be earned by offering charity to the church. During the
game, players will earn prestige points, primarily by completing
artworks. prestige points can be spent during the game, but at the end
of the game they will be the player’s primary source of victory points.
