A mix between turn based strategy game, arena battles and other miscellaneous possibilities (it’s not like normal chess). Consider the game to last about one and a half hours if played with 4
players. Select one of your own units during your turn to let circles appear on the ground. The gray ones are blocked, green ones to move, red ones to attack an enemy or to use a Field Attack. Selecting your king or pressing ESC during your turn will show up a menu for different actions. The unit’s hotkeys are: Q W E and R (depending on the position of the abilities). The board is shaped like a cross (so the forces don't overlap in the corners), there are 4 healing fields in the middle. Each player has 10 units and loses if his king-type unit dies. The players take turns to move their units. [b]During your turn you can either:[/b] Move a unit Attack a unit (Arena) Instead of killing a unit directly an arena fight is triggered (both units become unpaused and transported to a random arena). The attacker has +25% attackspeed and +10% movementspeed. The winning unit will reach a higher level (maximum is level 3) and gather 3 Soulpoints; the loser will acquire 5 Soulpoints. Attack a unit (Field Attack) Some units (averagely 2 per race) have Field Attacks. Instead of triggering an arena fight the attacker will attack once or cast a single spell to hurt / weaken the victim. Skip your own turn Increase the level of one of your units by paying 10 Soulpoints Cast your race specific Soulpower or Do unrelated stuff until the turn time runs out (1:30 minutes) [b]Some features of this map are:[/b] Long lasting fun due to 8 completely different races. 6 different arenas to fight in. A tutorial and a detailed info section (F9) to understand the rules. A well thought-out system for collecting Soulpoints. [i][b]New features of this map include:[/b][/i] Board Abilities. Global spells with extravagant cinematics. Certain changes to prevent the players from “hiding” at their starting positions. Various just-for-fun extras, including music change, renaming, random taunts and a third-person-camera. Player 1 (Red) can easily change the terrain of the board.
