By "multiple maps to conquer" does this mean the continents of the world are broken into different maps, or will there be other maps that were just randomly designed like those seen in the game "Lux?"

Will we see a level editor in future update?

Will thee be an option to play online in a real time sense? Such that players have a set amount of time to make their move.

Maps
Dominion HD contains multiple maps similar to other 'Risk' style games. Ours are based on the continents and regions of the world.

The map regions and groups have been designed to work with the classic rules of world domination as well as the updated rule set requiring Objectives.

Level Editor
A level editor isn't included but is something that may be possible in a future update. We do plan on releasing more maps via game updates.

Online Play Clock
When you create an online game, you have the option for setting Turn time limits. If you and a friend are online at the same time, you can certainly play in 'real-time'. When you have completed your Turn, the next player is on the clock.

You can be in multiple games as well. So take your Turn in game A, then jump in game B while your friend is taking their Turn in game A.
