The previous iterations of AoD have utilized randomness and demanded complete elimination of other nations, however, this version makes few changes. Firstly, there is no randomness, but all conquest is absolute, secondly, there are different win conditions.>victory conditions
The first faction to get 7 victory points wins, victory points can be earned two ways:
Firstly, by controlling "victory sites". Of which there are 12, those being Winterfell, Pyke, The Eyrie, Riverrun, Harrenhall, Casterly Rock, Dragon Stone, King's Landing, Storm's End, High Garden, Oldtown, and Sunspear. Victory sites are displayed on the map with crowns icons.
The second way to earn victory points is by eliminating factions, when the faction conquers another faction's last province, they earn 1 victory point. However victory points aren't uninheritable, e.g. if Starks conquer Boltons, and Greyjoys conquer Starks, Greyjoys only get an elimination point from the Stark and do not inherit the elimination point Starks got from eliminating the Boltons.
The turn order is the following:
1. Stark (dark green)
2. Baratheon (yellow)
3. Tully (blue)
4. Bolton (pink)
5. Martell (orange)
6. Arryn (cyan)
Lannister, eliminated by Arryn
Greyjoy, eliminated by Stark
Joffrey, eliminated by Baratheon
Tyrell, eliminated by Lannister
Cross icons on the map have no game relevancy, but are merely memorial sites for the fallen factions.
