Rounds and Turns

Action Points

All units have 3 action points available. All units have attack and Move abilities which cost 1 AP each. Player units will have up to 3 abilities. Enemy units will have varying amounts of Abilities. Abilities cost 1-3 AP. Actions - attack, move or abilities can be performed in any order.

Traits

Traits will positively and meaningfully impact how the unit is played. It might make the unit immune to being injured after battle, or add ricocheting attacks when an arrow misses, or add wide swings for melee, maybe set the ground of fire or heal a nearby ally when attacking.

Traits will interact with both normal attacks and Abilities.

Upgrades

Each unit will be able to get up to 9 upgrades out of 9 different upgrade types. Each upgrade type is essentially a boost to one of the base stats of the unit, for example health, critical chance, damage, etc.
