To see!. Yes, I think that the ZRF implementation could be challenging. The game itself looks interesting, but I have not had opportunity to make any kind of tests.

Nice game. And a nice ZRF challenge. I've made a ZRF file for this game,
but I wonder whether I interpret the rules correctly.

In the requirements, 10 white and black Drones are listed. For both white
and black, these are seven Drones (for each Wizard one) plus four spell
Drones for the Cleric, which makes 11. Does this mean that the Cleric is
also a spell Drone by itself and actually has three spell Drones? (Like
health Pawns). In my ZRF, I used four spell Drones (so, the actual total
number of opaque Drones is 11 per color).

Another thing is that when you are in a bad position, you can build a wall
of spirits (say three per color of which you still have a Wizard). And then
keep your Wizard behind and adjacent to their color's spirits. When a
spirit dies, just resummon it on the same position. So, if I interpret the
rules right, the game is a dead draw.

Does this mean that is shouldn't be legal to resummon on the position a
spirit just died? Or that when you slay a unit in fight, you occupy the
position? Or can units even move through occupied positions?
