A unit is an entity capable of moving and using abilities. Units are able to explore the area around them, take control of structures, and most are able to attack other units. Units may be stacked into armies of no more than 8 per world map hex; in combat each hex contains at most one unit.
Units can be recruited in several ways:
- Units can be produced in cities for a construction price in gold by using the produce unit city action. Units must be installed before they can be produced.
- Summoning spells can create units at the expense of mana.
- Friendly units may offer to join your cause when approached or freed from dungeons.
- Enemy units can be captured in combat by special unit abilities.
