Multiplayer
Players are able to challenge another human opponent to a match. It will start with a person picking their faction and then choosing a map. Once each player has a faction and map has been chosen, the players will enter the game. Since it is asynchronous, each player will take their turn, moving units and capturing points.

Game Mechanics
  • The map is a 3D model, where each of the borders of the hexes are on the same plane, at y=0. The size of the map is between 20-30 hexes wide and 20-30 hexes deep.
  • Capital city - Each player begins each match with a capital city. A player wins by capturing his opponent’s capital and loses if the opponent captures theirs. The capital city performs several functions: It provides resource each turn, it’s the only place where players can build troops (if they have the correct buildings unlocked), and it contributes to the amount of troops a player can field.
  • Capital city upgrades - A player’s capital begins the game as a town square. If the player has the necessary resources it can be upgraded to a castle, and then a stronghold. Each upgrade increases resource income, defense, and supply limit.
  • Resources - Players must collect resources in order to build units and fortifications.
  • Gold - Gold is spent to construct units.
  • Wood - Wood is spent to construct buildings and fortifications.
  • Food - Food determines the amounts of units a player can field.
