Hello to you who has just started playing battledawn. I have little "tip" how to get a crystal. All you have to do is to gain power. When you get 20 power, you will earn a crystal. And to gain power, build up armies. For every 10 soldiers, you get 1 power, and for each conquering you earn 2 powers. So get started to build your army.
If you wonder about something, just PM me at either Earth 5, or Fantasy Beta. This is the link to the BETA version: http://rc.battlegate.net/portal/
