A turn is a unit of time that encompasses the period in which certain actions may be taken by a Side.

Proposed Canon

Acting on Turn

Each day is divided up into a series of Turns, and each Side gets a single Turn per day. There is a natural turn order, resulting in a cyclic turn order. (Eg. Side A will always move before Side B, who will move before Side C, then night will pass and Side A moves again.) During its Turn, a Side may:

  • Heal (all units taking Turn heal prior to beginning Turn) [1]
  • Move Units (up to the unit's Move value)
  • Cast Spells
  • Attack units
  • Use Natural Abilities

Once a Side has completed all of these actions it wishes to perform, it declares its Turn is over, and the day proceeds to the next Side's Turn.

If multiple Sides ally, they take turns simultaneously, on the Turn of the last ally. For instance, using the example above, If Side A allies with Side C, then Side B will take Turn before Sides A and C, who take Turn simultaneously. If Sides A and B ally, they will both still take Turn before Side C, but they will do so simultaneously instead of consecutively.

Captured units take Turn with the Side that captured them. [2]

Acting on Another Side's Turn

When it is not a unit's turn, that Unit may:

  • Defend itself from attack
  • Attack enemies only when enemies are in its hex. [3]
  • Cast spells only when enemies are in its hex. [4]
  • Automatically attack when in contact with non-allied units, unless a leader is present.
  • Use Natural Abilities. [5]

If a Unit joins an alliance during that alliance's turn, that unit may now: [6]

Rations pop at dawn for all units, and all units are automatically cleansed. [7]


So far, it appears that the length of day is not limited, and so neither is the length of a turn. This makes it useless to hold your end of turn for longer than necessary, because the sun won't set until everyone has finished their Turn.

Turnamancy may affect the Turn in some way.
