Effect Monks and Missionaries can convert enemy buildings and siege units

Redemption is a technology in Age of Empires II that can be researched at the Monastery. Once researched, it allows Monks and Missionaries to convert enemy siege weapons and buildings, except for Farms, Fish Traps, Castles, Monasteries, Walls, Gates, Town Centers, and Wonders.

All buildings as well as Trebuchets and Battering Rams cannot be converted from the distance, meaning the Monk or Missionary has to stand directly next to the building/unit to convert it. All other siege weapons are convertible from the distance.

The ability of someone fallen from the faith to redeem himself or herself was a powerful act of forgiveness on the part of a religion. Religions that were forgiving and allowed redemption had an advantage over those that did not.
