Razmael, the Synthesist
The more astute of you will have noticed that each of the three factions involved in this current war have 78 rooms each under their control across the Aureliana, Ruins, and west/east Liruma. Now to explain what it's for!
Every 10 missions you complete for a faction will unlock a one-time mission on the board. This mission will have you report to the faction's war chief:
- Ophidians, Stl'frim at 64522
- Mitrine, Vari'ik at 59955
- Imps, Firlo at 65212
When you report to the war chief, they will grant you control of a division of 20 troops loyal to that faction. Mission completion requires you to march the troops into the conflict zone and capture one of the other faction's rooms to your side. But, you can only capture a room that borders one of your faction's current controlled rooms.
And of course, should divisions come into contact with each other, they'll immediately begin a fight to the death. You can still capture a room even with 1 member left in your division! And no, before you attempt it, divisions are immune to player attacks.
Capturing a room is instant, and you'll lose further control of the division. The division will remain in that room and do nothing further except attack enemy divisions that walk in. They'll ignore all other NPCs and players.

What happens when a faction loses all its controlled rooms? Likely a surrender or defeat, but who knows! We're leaving things up in the air and playing it by ear for now.
NOTE: Details and numbers may change depending on how we feel things are playing out.
