Laws of Nature

Nature itself acts much as it does on earth.

People (known as Units) are governed by a complex set of rules not enforced on Earth. To learn the known (and speculative) rules that govern Erfworld, visit Erfworld Mechanics. Many of these rules are similar to what one might find in a Real World turn-based strategy game, but combat itself occurs in real-time.

While most people that can cast spells are Casters, others can cast spells naturally. Magic can harm people, control them, create non-living creatures, and do many other things.
