How can I establish a position in the Colonies when I own no territory there?

To start a position in the colonies when you donít have any colonial holdings is difficult, but not impossible. Since your national warehouse is empty, you must first get hold of a barracks and transfer those goods required into the warehouse. You can either do this by conquest ( Set Sail from Europe with a brigade and a commander, some food, Ecptís and wood. Capture a neutral co-ordinate with a population density of at least 1. As soon as this co-ordinate is captured you will automatically be given the colonial warehouse. Next transfer money from Europe into the new warehouse and demolish the co-ordinate density - you can demolish captured neutral co-ordinates straight away. You will then have citizens and money in the warehouse and you then simply build your barracks and transfer in the food and Ecptís etc from your ships.), or by having a coordinate ceded to you by a friendly power. Either way, make sure you have the goods required to start a colony, i.e food, wine, etc, on board your ships and ready to transfer into the warehouse once you have your barracks!
