A perpetual, never-ending system of hero capture and defense. Each city has a militia stronghold region in which a figurehead hero of their town remains protected. Towns are able to assault the strongholds of opposing towns, capture heroes and return them to their own strongholds to bless their cities with increased township bonuses.

Hero Capture and Defense

Within each city resides a town hero. Each city has a militia building that leads to a teleporter which links to their town’s stronghold area. This hero may be kidnapped and captured by opposing towns if they are able to break down the doors protecting the hero. This is also the area in which their own captured heroes from other towns will be held and guarded.

In a sense it is a “Capture the Flag” game archetype — however, in order to capture the hero you must first destroy the doors to their safe room in the hero stronghold while defenders try to resist your attack.
