"Decreases training time and cost of land military units."

In-game description

The Shogunate is a Japanese Wonder in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties. It gives the player XP and ships a Daimyo when built, and reduces the cost and training time of land military units, as well as training Daimyos.

Overview Edit

The Shogunate allows the player to create powerful Daimyos that can train units, receive Home City shipments and boosts the stats of nearby units. It is highly recommended to build the Shogunate to advance into the Industrial Age due to its decent XP bonus that is for the Japanese (especially considering they can sent most shipments twice), and the Daimyo.

It should be noted that originally the player can only train Daimyo Masamune from the Shogunate, but should the player ships Daimyo Mototada, Daimyo Kiyomasa and/or Shogun Tokugawa, they will become available in the Shogunate for the rest of the game.

History Edit

"The Shogunate was built in the fifteenth century as the central architectural representation of the might and grace of the Japanese shogun, or bakufu. Its magnificent grounds encompass the seat of power, as well as the surrounding village, the entire community safely tucked within the outermost moat. Behind the Shogunate’s sturdy ramparts and walls, the most influential lords of Japan met to plot their nation’s future."
