This week we're revealing additional details about the Invasion
system in the upcoming Champions of Regnum expansion. Under the new
system, you can join an enemy attack or be forced to defend your
realm at a moment's notice, so be prepared!
Relics & Dragons
Each fort and castle will contain a unique relic; if the full
set of relics are stolen, the Realm is vulnerable to attack. When a
particular Realm collects all of the enemy's relics, they can
summon one of the three legendary ancient dragons--Alasthor, Vesper
and Tenax--who will haunt the enemy's borders to aid in capturing
the Realm Gate and thus initiating an Invasion.
The dragons not only add a cool new visual element, but make
invasions much more balanced, dynamic and fun. Now every battle
within a fortification becomes an important step toward invoking a
dragon to complete an enemy Realm Invasion. We've also completely
redesigned the rules to make Invasions more frequent.
