In Evony, an NPC (Non-player character) is a city that is not controlled by another player. Their levels can vary, and the higher level the NPC, the more difficult it is to defeat. A level 1 NPC has all level 1 buildings. A level 5 NPC has all level 5 buildings, and so on. NPCs are the most common source for supplying a persons’ army and are great for earning hero EXP. Of course, if you lose, you’ll lose your army and prestige. Currently, the goal of many people is to conquer a level 10 NPC, because of its benefits as all level 10 buildings. Unfortunately, these are one of the most difficult to defeat in the game, because they have 400,000 warriors and many defenses. I’ll be describing how to defeat a level 10 NPC in a later guide.
