The primary ability of the Harvest Order resets the resource dials to levels according to controlled areas. Normally, dials are not changed when lands are lost or gained, but through Season, Tactics, and Order cards that specifically affect the resource levels. If played with the Supremacy Bonus, resources, Tactics cards, and influence that are provided by built developments may be collected. The wood resource may then be reduced by 1 to build a development at a friendly stronghold. A development may be destroyed to move it to a different stronghold location. If a development is left without a stronghold (such as if the stronghold is destroyed), then it is destroyed automatically.
Each faction has five developments that provide benefits in the Harvest Order’s Supremacy Bonus or increase the defensibility of strongholds. The types of developments are as follows:
- Resources (
): The Resources development provides one additional resource matching a resource provided by the area it is located in. Each faction has two of these developments.
- Diplomat (
): The Diplomat development provides two influence tokens. The Latari Elves and Daqan Lords each have one of this development.
- Training Ground (
): The Training Ground development provides one Tactics card. Waiqar the Undying and the Uthuk Y’llan each have one of this development.
- Defensive Development: Each faction has two of these developments, which has a different effect for each faction. The Latari Elves’ defensive development, Protective Wards (
), allows them to force an opponent to retreat one standing unit before calculating strength in a battle. The Daqan Lords’ defensive development, Reinforced Walls (
), increases the strength of the stronghold by 2. Waiqar the Undying’s defensive development, the Cursed Tomb (
), can force an opponent to rout three figures at the cost of discarding the development. The Uthuk Y’llan’s defensive development, Hungry Spawn (
), can force an opponent to take four damage at the cost of discarding the development.
