Side quests are unlocked in Bronze Age, after completing Celebrate Victory (see Story Quests). New side quests are triggered by completing story quests, researching technologies, constructing specific buildings, scouting and conquering provinces. If the player completes or aborts all available side quests, recurring quests will take place until the requirements for new side quests are fulfilled.
