Once the Town Center is built, a secondary objective of building a Sacred Field is revealed. Shortly after, the primary objective of building Trading Posts over the saltpeter sites is also revealed.
Saltpeters get destroyed

Destroying the Saltpeter sites

It would a wise to use the turtle strategy and to build Castles and Walls along the cliffs and edges of the colony, as there will be constant attacks from the native rebels and they will come in large waves the colony and kill Villagers with ease.

Once the walls and castles are built. The player can fight off the enemy units. The player can also start building their economy, military, and age up.

Once the player reaches close to the Industrial Age, if they amassed a large of army, They can start advancing towards the rebels' land and destroy all the Saltpeter sites. Make no mistake however, this mission is often difficult due to the stiff resistance and military size of the rebel Indians. Large numbers of enemy Sowar and Urumi will often put up a fight and become a threat to the player's infantry.
