The game is played on a map. The map is divided in tiles. Each tile is of a given terrain type. The terrain type is used to determine what markers can be recruited in the tile and the terrain type is also used as a guideline for the terrain setup in battles.
There are 6 types of terrain







Just ordinary flat ground, here and there a tree here, a hill or a house. The name says it all. Enough trees to make a Wood Elf happy. Scorpions love it and Khemris call it home. Everybody else is less enthusiastic about it. Hills, cracks, mountains, volcanoes, if it's made of stone you will find it here. Some houses forming a village. Surrounded by farmland and orchards. More houses, if you want  you can use it as an excuse to fight sieges.
