A nomadic capital holding

Nomadic capitals are the only settlements allowed for nomad khagans and khans. Every nomadic ruler can only have one nomadic capital. The nomadic capital is destroyed if the clan becomes unlanded.

A nomadic capital does not directly provide taxes or levies. Instead, it has buildings which can increase Population growth, maximum Population and nomadic tax, among others. For the nomad's military, the capital has buildings which increase morale, defence and offense of unit types, supply limit and movement speed, among others.

When a nomad moves his capital, all buildings are transported to the new location, although some may become inactive (such as the fishing village and harbor in a landlocked province). Technology levels are also brought along to the new nomadic capital.

Just like a patrician's family palace, fully upgrading the nomadic capital is a multi-generational affair. However, construction duration can be reduced via the steward's "Oversee Construction" job. On the flip side, nomadic capital buildings have technology requirements.

As nomads cannot build forts, occupying enemy nomadic capitals is the main way of increasing warscore when at war against other nomads, besides battles.
