Champions are playable characters who carry out various commands to support their tribe. They provide manual labor for developing provinces and serve as unit leaders in battle. Monthly tasks and combat participation allow them to gain experience needed to level up; the stronger a champion becomes, the more commands they can make.
The game classifies champions as warriors, druids, or bards. Each class serves a particular niche to fulfill the player's goals and cannot be changed.
- Warrior - Physical fighters who excel at melee combat. Has the highest strength and arms than any other class.
- Druid - Magic users who specialize in spells that affect the environment. Relies on dexterity and mind to be effective in their role.
- Bard - Magic users who wield spells that influence humans and other living creatures. Has more balanced stats than druids, though their best trait is charm.
Players can recruit champions in tents or capture them during battles; they are less likely to accept low-leveled characters as their leader. Once a character joins a tribe, they will rest for one month before accepting tasks. Only 10 champions can remain active on the province map while the rest will be stationed indoors.
- Level - A champion's current level. Its limit cap is 15.
- Class - A champion's inherent class.
- Strength - Serves as the champion's health and stamina. Used for performing tasks or taking action in battle. Increases by leveling up.
- Mana - Allows the champion to cast spells. Increases by leveling up.
- Arms - Indicates a champion's physical prowess and ability to fight in hand-to-hand combat.
- Dexterity - A measure of the champion's ability to carry out multiple commands efficiently. Also influences hit and dodge rates.
- Mind - Affects the impact and power of spells.
- Charm - Indicates a champion's natural charisma, enabling them to gain more family members and soldiers. Helps make negotiations and character recruitment much easier.
- Family - Represents the number of family members a champion has. Enhances the character's productivity when performing provincial tasks. Increases by upgrading a province's burg.
- Soldier - Represents the number of soldiers a champion has. Enables characters to withstand attacks and inflict more damage. Increases by upgrading a province's citadel.
- Ability - Indicates a champion's overall morale. Allows characters to craft better items during the turn phase. In battle, it influences the success rate of winning duels, performing melee attacks, and dodging enemy spells. Its limit cap is 100.
If a champion performs a specific command multiple times, they may acquire a new skill related to that task. Skills improve productivity levels and are easily learned. Some skills, however, are inherent to certain characters and cannot be acquired by any means; despite their rarity, these traits provide a higher boost than normal skills.
