Here's a quick congrats to Afiag who has come the closest yet to owning both boards in Shadow Aura. Not only that, but she would have conquered both places in a rather quick succession.
Our battle for Kinghill, which quite literally ended a minute or two ago, came down to a complete tile tie after an Entropy from my Unscur. She did well to place most monsters away from it, but one measly tile was all I needed to get us squared. It came down to kills -- nine to seven -- giving me perhaps one of the narrowest victories in Shadow Aura history
As such, methinks a prize shall be created for whoever can be the first to own both boards. I've always wanted to give Gobbs and I special generals, so maybe a special general to whoever first claims the top positions on all boards?
So hurry up before the Moons are added

Yeah, well I'll just be taking that back and.. Hey! Who's invading my Grevja land?
You win if you achieve world domination for any length of time, right?
That would be awesome. In any case, it's a wonder that I've come that close seeing as I still have only nymphs! Erm.. besides my current general anyways.
Ooh, moon conquering. I think new lands require new monsters. Can I make one? I'm graduating high school in 8 days, and I'm going to be bored.
You're unique. Just like everybody else.

Yup, any length of time, although I should put some limitation on that just so blokes don't go purposely stagnating their battles once they are on top. Probably should say that after conquering the last continent, any on-going battles on the others must conclude in victory. That oughta stop stagnation.
Sorry, but it is Shadow Aura rule that only Six, Gobbs, and I can make anything with Shadow Aura, which is strange since there have been more requests to make SA monsters than BD monsters, and those are always wanted!
Besides, the moons will have no monsters recruitable on them. You gotta bring monsters in, which makes them especially difficult to maintain.

* class changes to Elementalist to shatter the basics of Shadow Aura *
I really would like to call into question this practice. I mean, yeah, it is suppose to be just us since it was our creation, but... is it really wise? I mean, there have actually been more requests? Seriously? That's crazy-styles. Is it the total free-style of the creatures that has more allure than the vaguely defined mythic aspects of the beeders?
Of course, then I'm reminded, "Hell, I have 100+ of those guys. I really gotta make more." But then, when rushed, I wind up with another Kamaitachi 1.0. Ewww.
It puts peaches on your pizza!

Just remember that "more requests" means about two or three. Nobody wants to draw anything for Battling Dragons... ever....
It is really limited to we-three brothers simply because of the future expansion potential that was always supposed to come packed with it, namely the card game(s) which we were given hope for by indy designers like RAK. For legal reasons, we can't have anyone else's hands in it. Sure, there shouldn't be a problem, but with the right lawyer, anyone could make it a problem.
Plus, then there'd have to be a new, fourth continent made. Screw that noise. Rhado and Grevja and Whatever-that-other-one-is-called is all we need to reverse-Pangaea.

So... Moons are cool. Would a moon have fewer territories than a continent?
If ignorance is bliss, then you must be orgasmic.

The number of moons is one for each element... and then plus one for the top. So, what? Sixteen? Yes, not even I know how many elements are in this game.
Reason is that only monsters of the moon's element can travel to it. In fact, the moons default to a big ol' plain of nuthin' but its element, resulting in much wackiness!
That, and all responses get only one day instead of the regular five.
