"Cannot build cities"

I have a question about a fear card whose name I can't remember - something to do with overseas trade. It's level II effect stops the invaders from building cities in coastal lands, and there was a disagreement about what exactly this meant - if invaders would build a city, do they instead build a town, or nothing at all?

Thanks!

They build nothing at all.

My favorite fear card I've run into.  Of course it was flipped by bringer right when coastal lands were about to build and we pushed towns to 4 coastal lands and only two built, and almost every one was cleared by the ensuing ravage, and only 1 built for England's 2nd build phase.

That swung the hardest game I had tried from "Holy Crap, what did I get myself into?" to "Holy Carp, we got this!"
