Supports are pillars built to prevent cave-ins. They can be linked to mechanisms and collapse when triggered, causing an immediate cave-in if the support was the only thing preventing it.

Supports are built through the build menu and require one stone, log or block of any type. They are built in two stages - first the material is moved into place by an architect, and then (depending on material) completed by either a carpenter (for wood), metalsmith (for metal blocks), or mason (for stone or glass).

Supports do not block movement, fluids or missile fire.
