LUNA is the title of the Moon Priestess, and before her very eyes, each of the up to four Orders competes for the right to decide on her successor. The players are the heads of the Orders who try to convince the Priestess of themselves. Over the course of six rounds, they need to collect as many influence points as possible by skillfully placing their novices to achieve that goal.
The players move their novices over seven islands surrounding a temple island. The novices are placed according to the worker movement principle, i.e. they are not placed at the beginning of a round, but instead start where they ended the round before. Thus, novice movement is an important part of a round: Only if you are in the right place at the right time, you will gain the deciding influence points. You will have to build new shrines, work at the temple, and participate in the Priestess divine services. But do not forget to recruit additional novices or win the favor of the local Priests; these are vital means to prepare and combine the diverse actions.
