|Stats||Allows creation of Gunpowder Units, improves Siege Units and Archers|
- Chemistry is one of the most important technologies of the game, as it is the only way of creating any Gunpowder Units, which are some of the most powerful Units in the game. It also improves the effectiveness of Siege Units and Archers by adding +1 points of damage (the projectiles will also be lit on fire).
The science of chemistry was very crude during the Middle Ages and devoted almost entirely to finding ways to convert base metals into gold. This study was called alchemy and practitioners were called alchemists. Alchemists occasionally stumbled upon useful chemicals by accident. The most significant result of chemistry experiments was the European acquisition of gunpowder, which had been invented many centuries earlier by the Chinese.
