Abodes are the dwellings your Followers build and live in. They serve three important purposes:

  • In Abodes that are neither empty nor full, Followers procreate, increasing the population of your civilization.
  • The Followers inside generate Belief up to a certain maximum amount, which they periodically make available to you in pink bubbles that appear above the Abodes.
  • You can release Followers from Abodes that are sufficiently full, who can then perform tasks such as building new Abodes, Mining, or repairing Shrines.

Building Abodes[]

Abodes are built by Followers on Plots. A plot is a section of flat, unobstructed land identified by four light gray angled brackets. To clear a plot, remove any trees or rocks in the way and use Sculpt Land to create a flat area of sufficient size. Any exploring Followers, meaning any not engaged in another task, that are sufficiently close will begin building on a nearby plot provided they don't notice something more pressing, like a Shrine to repair. If no Followers are nearby, you can release some from nearby Abodes if any are full enough and/or guide Followers to the plot using Leashing. Depending on the plot rank and upgrade level of your Abodes, only so X many Followers will work on a single plot.


Plots can occur on any flat piece of terrain

Abode ranks[]

At first, only the smallest rank 1 plots will be formed by flattening land and clearing obstacles, and only rank 1 Abodes can be built on these plots. As you acquire and unlock certain Advance Cards, clearing land may mark off larger, higher rank plots. Plots that have not been moved will automatically increase in rank when there is enough clear land. Higher ranked Abodes are capable of holding more Followers and Belief than lower rank Abodes, but there is a trade off - higher-ranked Abodes must build up more Belief before it becomes available for collection.

In the homeworld[]


For the smallest abode, in the home-world three followers can build upon the plot. As you move up in the size of the plot more followers can build on that plot.

Full Abodes[]

When an abode's Breeder capacity is full, the abode will produce a Builder. Builders are used to construct new abodes on empty Plots, either nearby their original abode for free, or by Leashing the abode to get the builder to travel great distances.


When an empty plot is nearby the builder icon will appear above an abode

Unlocking higher ranks[]

To unlock higher ranks of buildings you must create more followers and unlock the bigger abodes from the timeline.

Abode upgrades[]

In addition to unlocking higher ranks, some Monuments also unlock more housing slots.
