Building An Outpost In Age Of Wonders 4
To build an outpost in Age of Wonders 4, you first need a hero. Other units such as scouts cannot build an outpost. You will also need to find an area outside of your domain that is not too close to other factions or free cities. You need to move your hero inside such an area and then click on the ground. You will get the option to build an outpost. It is going to take a few turns for the outpost to be completed. Once it has been completed, you can click on it to get additional options like founding a city. This is going to help you expand your empire and get access to unique resources.
Note that if your outposts and potential new cities are too close to other factions then they might not like that and might go against you down the line. You should also not have your cities too far apart or too close to one another since they are going to grow and their borders are going to expand.
