Strategies[edit | edit source]
- Obviously, controlling artefacts is a vital part of the game, especially early on when you're wanting for upgrades and survivability. To control a artefacts, simply approach and interact with it using a unit, securing its boon for your faction. Wresting control of one from another faction is trickier, as as long as there's a unit on the artefact or on an adjacent hex, it will remain under that faction's control. This consumes your action point for the turn. Artefacts of the same type stack!
- Enslavers spawn next to Artefacts. When approaching an Artefact, it's appropriate to consider how you would handle an Enslaver in the area.
