  • Units: 20 Miniatures for each Faction kept in a supply. These consist of 3 Heroes, 5 Warriors, and 12 Serfs.

  • Hero Cards: Each Hero has a corresponding Hero Card that lists their special abilities.

  • Faction Tokens: Two kinds-1 Score Token (square) for tracking Victory Points, and 2 Action Tokens (shield) for marking a chosen action during Action Selection.


  • Capital City Levels: 3 stackable structural Constructs that represent a Faction's Capital City location and level. The Capital City is considered a "Structure".

  • Towers: 3 structural Constructs that can be built by a Faction on a Land Region. Towers are considered "Structures", NOT Units.

  • Sea Vessel: A movable vessel Construct that can carry Units into Sea Regions. A Sea Vessel is considered a "Unit".

  • Exploration Tokens: Placed face-down onto unexplored Land and Sea Regions on the map (except Capital City Regions) and then flipped and resolved when Units first enter a Region containing one. There are 2 kinds of Exploration Tokens: Land and Sea.

  • First Player Token: A Token that is given to the first player each round to perform the first action, and will pass to the next player at the end of the round.

  • Quick Reference Sheet: A quick reference of gameplay and the effects of Exploration Tokens.

    • Continents - clusters of 10 adjacent Land Regions.

    • Shores - connect Land to Sea Regions where Sea Vessels may dock.
    • Ferry Routes - separate Sea Regions and connect continents so Land Units may cross.
