Proposed Canon

A Turn is a period of time, in which certain actions may be taken by a Side.

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.) Note that alliances affect Turn order.

During its Turn, an Unit may:

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

Captured units take Turn with the Side that captured them.[1]

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.[2]
  • Cast spells only when enemies are in its hex.[3] (Some spells can only be cast on own turn.)Erf-b1-p064Same-site.PNG
  • Automatically attack when in contact with non-allied units, unless a leader is present.
  • Use Natural Abilities.[4]

If a Unit joins an alliance during that alliance's turn, that unit may now:[5]


Speculation

Rations pop at the start of the side's turn for all units, and all units are automatically cleansed.Erf-b1-p037Same-site.PNG and Erf-b1-p106Same-site.PNG

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.

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.
