    • On each land plot you can construct one building

    • You will need to put the monster and summoner cards to work on the land
    • Up to 5 cards per plot (subject to change)
    • Encourage the combining of cards
    • The older cards will be valuable to use on land
    • The newer cards will be valuable at higher levels too
    • You will need to stake DEC in order for your cards to come to life to work on the land
    • The DEC will come from burning SPS
  • Items and spell cards

    • Still quite a while away
    • The product that your business will make from your land production
    • Most people don't have land and will need these cards
  • Land will also open up prefix name titles

    • You can earn titles through differnt goals and objectives
  • Eventually there will be a competition between the territories to unlock the secret of Praetoria

    • When it is completed there will be an airdrop
