Overview

In Total War: Shogun 2 Buildings are used for the recruitment of military units and also subterfuge and religious agents. They also have a range of effects, either on a clan’s economy or on the units and agents they produce. See each chain for details of how it can be used:-

Castle Chain

The castle is the heart of the population and public order's main controlling factor. Each level of castle building increases the size of its castle town: providing an additional slot on which to build, enabling the recruitment of basic ashigaru units and determining how many units can be recruited there in each turn. Larger castles are more difficult to assault and spawn a larger defence force of samurai retainers and women. They are also the chief consumer of food in a province, so if farm building levels are not in step with castle size there will be food shortages.

Archery Chain

All bow-armed units can be recruited from this chain of buildings. Those buildings higher up the chain improve the quality of archers and enable the recruitment of bow heroes. In combination with a temple, it is possible to recruit bow warrior monks from the archery chain. Archers are excellent for skirmishing but poor in melee.
