The Caravaneers are a space-based coalition of traders who send out fleets across the galaxy to offer every empire that is not Civic fanatic purifiers.pngCivic devouring swarm.pngCivic machine terminator.png genocidal great deals. They start in a unique system called Chor’s Compass which contains their Caravaneer Citadel and two out of three caravan fleets: Racket Industrial Enterprise, the Numistic Order, and the Vengralian Trium. These fleets roam the galaxy, traveling towards every empire to offer deals.

Chor's Compass[edit]

Reliquary Chambers on Caravaneer Citadel

The Caravaneer Citadel in this System acts as the return point for the caravan fleets and an intergalactic Casino. Should the station be destroyed but at least one caravan fleet still be alive, they will ask to re-establish it in a random uncolonized system claimed by an empire, as close to their original one as possible. If the empire accepts it will lose control of the system but gain +5% Trade value.png Trade Value.

The Caravaneers use a unique resource called CaravanCoinz, which can be bought in bulks of 8k, 12k and 26k with Energy Credits.png Energy Credits. The options are equally efficient. Those can be used to either play Slots or open a Reliquary. Reliquaries restock every 500 days.

The Collector[edit]

If an empire has a colony within 3 hyperlane jumps of the Caravaneer Citadel, each year there is a 2% chance of the empire being called by a caravaneer called The Collector and offered a mystery box for 3000 Energy Credits.png Energy. If bought, it will grant one of the following:

  • 5% - Incredibly Boring Relic capital world modifier (+10% Minerals.png Minerals from Jobs)

Caravans[edit]

Caravan

Every time a Caravan fleet enters an empire's borders it will offer a rare trade deal. The offer can be accepted immediately, delayed to when the fleet is leaving the space or rejected outright. The fleets can not be contacted any other way and all attempts will redirect to Chor's Compass instead. Delaying has a very low chance of the deal changing.

Certain random events can take place while a Caravan is within an empire's borders.

Numistic Order[edit]

Flag caravaneer 02.png The Numistic Order is a religious Caravan that offers only deals with fixed costs. It features the largest amount of offers but half of them are one time only. They offer the following deals:

Attacking the Caravaneers[edit]

While the Caravaneers will never become hostile to any empire except in retaliation, they can be attacked like any neutral entity. If a Caravan is attacked it will become hostile but the rest of the Caravaneers will remain peaceful and available for trade. Caravans have 4k fleet power and come equipped with mid-game components. The Caravaneer Citadel on the other hand has 7k fleet power and comes equipped with end-game components. Both Caravans and the Caravaneer Citadel grant 2000 Energy Credits.png Energy and Minerals.png Minerals when destroyed and destroying a Caravan gives the admiral leader that destroyed it the Leader trait enclave trader.png Caravan Counter trait. Destroying the Caravaneer Citadel brings a temporary -40 Diplomacy opinion.png Opinion malus from all empires that had contact with the Caravaneers and are not Civic fanatic purifiers.pngCivic devouring swarm.pngCivic machine terminator.png genocidal.
