We played a four player game.

At the end of the game:

Nomads: 13 structures
Witches: 13 structures
Halflings: 6 structures
Darklinks: 6 structures

Who gets how many points (are scoring) and why?

In a tie, all points for the tied positions are added up and shared equally. So:

Nomads and Witches share 1st and 2nd points, which is (18+12)/2 = 15 points each.

Halflings and Darklings share 3rd and 4th points, which is (6+0)/2 = 3 points each.

Just making sure to address the "why" in your question...

You only score the largest area of directly and/or indirectly adjacent group of structures for each player. Directly adjacent means structures that are either built next to each other or that are connected via a bridge. Indirectly adjacent are structures connected via shipping abilities or special race abilities (fakir magic carpet or dwarven tunneling, for example).

Hi,

so for example:

Nomads: 10 structures
Nomads: 9 structures (second town)
Engineer: 5 structures
Chaos Mag: 4 structures

So in this case would the nomads get 1st place for 18 points as well as 2nd place 12 pts?

No. Each faction scores for only its largest group of structures.

I note that your example is impossible anyway as each faction only has a maximum of 17 structures (8 dwellings, 4 trading houses, 3 temples, 1 stronghold, and 1 sanctuary).
