Game looks awesome. I'm enjoying the mini-AAR's.

One question: can you actually conquer the wildlands in .85? I never could place the monument to conquer them in .77, even when I defeated the guardian.
I hope it is in. I was very disappointed when I beat the serpent in the giant canyon and couldn't take full advantage of his demise.
Also, do things like drakes and other recruitable creatures count as champions for purposes of experience? In other words, would experience be split between DL and Mazy when they fought in the same battle?
I have conquered a couple of the wildlands. In the game I am playing now, I have taken the Curgen's Tomb and Ice Lands (Vetrar). In previous games I have taken over the Fire Lands and the Lombard Desert. Curgen's Tomb, you get the Dragon and the 3 Crystal air shard. Fire you get the 3 shards of fire, and the ice you get the 3 blue shards. Lomabard Desert you get a the library thing--600 points of research i think.
The Ruins of Imperium seem to be broken. I went through that place with a fine tooth comb and never could get to place out posts in it. I have never run into the Bhindami Fissure or the Swamp place. I have seen The Shroud, but I was busy get thumped by Verga and never did make it back into that place.
My current game I did recruit a dragon from Curgen's Tomb. I had a great army of heroes, with my sovereign, and my dragon. Unfortunately, I had cast Firestorm several times on a choke point to keep Relias at bay while I finished off Gilden. Apparently the fires were still burning even though I couldn't see them on the map (big glitch). I had even dispelled them (same glitch). I walked through that tile with my army. The screen went crazy. Each one of my heroes in the group died four or five times. None of them had any injuries prior to walking through and then all of the sudden they all had 4 or 5 of them. That sucked.
