The game has one unofficial goal that all of you must perform: expanding. To build a sound economy and be able to tackle the more advanced quests and adventures, you must grow your real estate. This go through a rather resource intensive process.

The current known expansion plots are:
The full in game map:
Expanding the dominion is a resource intensive labor; especially the plots requiring expansion permits. Each expansion permit can be obtained with 30 trade tickets, and each explorer permit can be obtained with 5 expansion permits / 150 trade tickets. Those are by far the most time and resource consuming elements. All resources mapped per plot:
There is no best strategy. However, to speed up your expansion you better:
- Expend concentric around the start zone. The plots closer to the center of the forest require fewer resources.
- Follow the main plots and expend in direction of the special features. Do them in the main storyline order!
- Do the expansion permit plots last, go for those with the fewer permits first.
It is important to have as much as possible real estate, rather than expanding in one direction; focus on the cheapest plot you can access.
From time to time when expanding, the plot closes when all resources are given. The game makes a resynch and you cannot access the plot anymore. Just force-close the game and restarts it. The plot should be accessible again; eventually you need to adjust the RP amount. The coins, lanterns and permits are not lost.
