Monks are a pure necessity for the Religious buffs among us. They can provide an extremely powerful array of defensive measures, that can ensure complete control over your enemies.
The monk is a versatile unit capable of buffing or debuffing a parish (Mariage and Confirmation, respectively), influencing the votes of a player in a parish (adding or substracting a number of votes dependant on the number of monks sent), interdicting a village or parish (this skill prevents any attacks on the target, be it from a player or AI - this skill doesn't stop incoming attacks) and excommunicating other villages (removes the ability to use religious powers for a set amount of time).
Each monk costs 150 gold and occupies 25 unit space with a maximum of 8 units allowed per village.
Monks are unlocked after researching Ordination (prerequisite: Theology 5).
Their total number can be upgraded up to 8 monks per village by further researching Ordination and their speed up to 500% by researching Pilgrimage (prerequisite Ordination 1).
