An Era I technology which enables the Pillage army action, an accessory that grants the Camouflage capacity on Units, and an accessory that grants the Detection capacity on Heroes. The Forgotten start with this technology unlocked.

The Pillage army action allows units to siege regional buildings of other empires: watchtowers, defensive towers, extractors, and pacified villages. Doing so grants a reward based on the type of structure that was pillaged, while also depriving the empire who owned the pillaged building of all bonuses it provided for a time (9 TurnSmall.png on Normal Speed).

It is not possible to pillage a building belonging to an empire you are currently at peace or allied with.

Upon successfully pillaging a regional building, an amount of Dust is rewarded, as well as a reward based on the building that was pillaged. The full rewards are listed here:
