Gateways are items available at the Black Market that allow you to change the position of your Castle on the Stormfall Map. There are two types of Gateways: Gateways of Chance and Gateways of Precision. A Gateway of Chance will relocate your Castle to any randomly selected, vacant position on the Map, while a Gateway of Precision will enable you to move your Castle to the Map coordinates of your choice, so long as those coordinates are vacant. Remember: once you move your Castle, you CANNOT move it back to its previous location!
You will also find locations of a new type on the Map called Vacant Lots – these are special areas where other Castles can be relocated to. A Vacant Lot cannot be raided, spied, etc. However, all your Units will be returned to your Castle if:
- you sent Units to a Castle and it was turned into a Vacant Lot while your Units were traveling there.
- the Castle that was turned into a Vacant Lot had your Reinforcements.
Keep in mind: if you send Caravans to a Castle and it is then turned into a Vacant Lot, they will reach their destination, unload, and then return to your Castle. All Units from a Castle (that was turned into a Vacant Lot) that were sent to other Castles (as Reinforcements, etc.) will remain there.
If you send Units to a Castle and it is then relocated, your Units will IMMEDIATELY return to your Castle.
