Gathering is a card type introduced in Empires. Gathering cards collect tokens on their Supply piles, which can be taken after a certain condition is met. Since the Gathered on Gathering card piles is a communal resource, all Gathering cards are also non-Attack interaction cards. The Gathering type acts as a reference point for Defiled Shrine.
 List of Gathering cards
 Official Rules
- A few Action cards have the type Gathering; this has no special functionality, but groups cards that add tokens to their Supply pile.
- tokens on a pile stay there until an ability specifically removes them; when gaining a card from that pile, slide the tokens off onto the next card.
- tokens can be on a pile even if no cards are left in the pile (players may use the randomizer cards to mark them).
 Additional rules clarifications
If a Gathering card is bought from the Black Market deck, its supply pile is not present in that game, and so its Gathering abilities are ineffective.
