The pinnacle of any Nation is the creation of a monument so great, so magnificent and awe-inspiring that it can truly be considered a Wonder of the world.
Tannenberg-sketch

In Rise of Nations, these monuments are no less amazing than their real-life counterparts. As you can see from the bonuses listed below, wonders provide your Nation with a great many bonuses and are well worth the investment. You will also notice that each wonder has an associated point value. This value is used for scoring when attempting to achieve a Wonder victory - in certain games, you will win as long as you or your coallition maintain a wonder point lead over other factions for a certain period of time.

There are eighteen wonders in Age of Darkness. Only one of each wonder may be built by all players. In other words, the first player to successfully build the Temple of Tikal will be the only player in the game with that wonder. This limitation when combined with being able to set the number of Wonder points needed for victory makes for some interesting strategy and gameplay. Some of the powers of wonders are so powerful as to rival even the national bonuses of other factions.

The seventeen wonders are divided into several classes:

  • Liberal wonders are wonders that can be built only by factions that researched Liberalism.
  • Capitalist wonders, available where Capitalism was researched.
  • Fascist wonders are wonders that can be built only by factions that researched Militarism. Although some others do need other non-fascist research, Fascist wonders generate units as well as improve your units in combat.
  • Communist wonders are wonders that require State Property in order to be created.

Restricted wonders:

  • Cathedral (2 versions)
  • Aya Sofiya
  • Tower of London
  • Forbidden City
  • Dome of the Rock
  • Taj Mahal
  • Alcazar de Toledo
  • Pyramids
  • Parthenon
