Our story so far…
In Elemental, you design your own units. The only units you can create in Elemental are either men or Fallen.
So that we can kill any illusions now: There aren’t cities where you get to crank out armies of Unicorns and dragons or goblins.
There are dragons and trolls and other such creatures in the game. But they are rare, special and have to be recruited.
Your units start out as peasants. And you can train them (which gives them more HP) and you can arm them (which gives them more attack) and you can give them armor (which increase their defense).
As anyone who has spent time in the military can tell you, one well trained, well armed man is the equal of many many unarmed, untrained men. So the scale of men in battle is significant.
Of course, when you bring in magic or deal with some of the titanic creatures of the world you quickly see the scope of battle. If you like the Total War series, you can imagine some of what we have in mind except here you can get that Lord of the Rings battle feeling where certain units just make mince meat out of whole squads of enemy units.
