In-Game Text

"I shall, therefore, here only beg leave to remind the student, that waste is a spoil and destruction of the estate, either in houses, woods, or lands; by demolishing not the temporary profits only, but the very substance of the thing; thereby rendering it wild and desolate […]"

– Sire William Blackstone, Commentaries on The Laws of England

Among the many crimes against life and property forbidden by the English law the crime of Waste stands out as a particularly egregious assault upon the good moral character and fiber of His Majesties colonies. Unto those unconcerned with His Majesty Waste grants the ability to destroy Homesteaded property.
