The Fire Pit is a unique Native American building in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs. It is built by the Aztecs, Iroquois, and Sioux from the Discovery Age onward at a cost of 100 wood.

The Fire Pit grants a choice of special bonuses, which become active whenever a Villager is dancing at the Fire Pit. The more Villagers dancing, the more powerful the bonus becomes. The maximum number of dancers is 25. The percentage-based dance improvements use the final amount as base, instead of the unimproved amount. This means the dances are much more powerful than they would otherwise be in later Ages.

History Edit

"For the aboriginal peoples of North and Central America, spirituality encompassed all the routines of daily life. Worship was not something that happened according to some arbitrary schedule. Hunting, cooking, meeting - all of life's activities had spiritual and ceremonial significance.

Long before recorded history, Native peoples have celebrated the mysteries of life, death, and the universe through the medium of dance. Many complex dance ceremonies emerged over the centuries, each with their own meaning and purpose. The ceremonial dance served as a way to unite people to face the day's challenges, while at the same time linking with the honored traditions of generations past.
