Once an appropriate crystal is found that can be forged into a Manaheart, the player must take that crystal to a place to be forged into a functional Manaheart. Depending on how many Manahearts have been forged, the players must go to different locations. The first Manaheart must be forged at a Village. The second Manaheart must be forged at a Monastery. The third Manaheart must be forged at a Mage Tower. The fourth Manaheart must be forged at a city. In this scenario, monasteries can be attacked for an artifact, but they monastery is not destroyed in the process. The player still marks the monastery with a shield to show that the artifact has been stolen and that that player is no longer allowed to use the services of that monastery. Only one artifact can be stolen from each monastery.
To forge at a mage tower or city still requires defeating the tower or city to gain initial access.
The people of that location can forge the crystal into a Manaheart. However it takes time. The process is complete at the end of the round. The player leaves the crystal at the location. At the start of the next round, the Manaheart has been forged and the player who dropped it off can go pick it up without a fight. However, another player can attack the location to steal the Manaheart if they get there first. Once the forged Manaheart is acquired, discard the Unforged Manaheart card and take the Manaheart card instead.
If attacking a village, draw 1 gray token to fight. If attacking a Monastery, draw 1 purple token. If attacking a mage tower, draw 1 purple and 1 gray. If attacking a city, draw the first half of the token present on the dial, rounded up.
