In Forge of Empires you can research various technologies, differing between Eras, they can be as simple as the Wheel, or as complex as Gunpowder. To research new technologies you use Forge Points (FP), and as the Eras advance, so does the number of FPs you need to research newer technologies. The lowest technology you can research at the start is Stilt Houses and Pottery, and the highest is Apartment House, Pest Control and Gunpowder.
In addition to forge points, technologies require Gold, Supplies, and further on through the game, goods, such as lumber and marble to unlock fully. In total, the goods required to research all techologies (to the end of the colonial era) are:
Dried Herbs; 224
Talc Powder; 210
