Battle for the Moonlands is an online Magi-Nation themed MMORPG produced after the title's acquisition by Cookie Jar. Closed beta-testing for the game began on December 20, 2007, transitioning to open beta on February 12, 2008. The game was officially released on March 31, 2008. However, it is currently closed.


The game consists of building a character native to one of four Moonlands: Arderial, Naroom, Orothe, or the Underneath. After completing a tutorial with Orwin, the player must through the terrain of each of those four regions in search of their hidden Shadow Relics. Along the way, the player acquires Animite shards from wild Dream Creatures which can be used in battle.

When the player has a certain number of Shadow Relics, Sperri and Motash inform the player that Orwin has been kidnapped by the Shadow Magi to gain knowledge of the Portals. Motash locates Orwin in the Shadowlands of the Core.

The player confronts Zed, who threatens to defeat the player with his Arboll Stalker and powerful Core Spells. After this battle, the player notes that Zed was not as strong as he had claimed, and a second battle ensues.


When the player creates an account, he or she is asked to choose a school (or Moonland) to follow, Arderial, Naroom, Orothe or Underneath. Each school has a different stat arrangement and a strategic advantage over another region:

  • Naroom is strong against Orothe but weak against Arderial
  • Orothe is strong against Underneath but weak against Naroom
  • Underneath is strong against Arderial but weak against Orothe
  • Arderial is strong against Naroom but weak against Underneath


The game features three modes of play that must be completed in order to obtain Shadow Relics. Each Moonland contains five Shadow Relics per quest type for a total of fifteen per region. There are a total of sixty Shadow Relics to be obtained throughout the game. One Shadow Relic is earned each time the player finishes one of the following quest types:

  • Moonlands Explorer - The player searches through a Moonland for a treasure chest. The chest is located in a different level each time, and each time through, the chest becomes deeper in the Moonland, and the Dream Creatures become more powerful.
  • Time Attack - The player must defeat a certain number of Dream Creatures within 600 seconds (10 minutes).
  • Shadow Hunter - The player searches for a stationary Magi in the same manner as during Moonlands Explorer.


The player can enter a battle by walking into a spark of dream mist, or by talking to a hostile Magi. During battle, all active Magi and Dream Creatures possess a health bar and a purple action bar. The action bar will recharge based on the unit's speed stat. Once full, the allied unit may perform an action. Battling consists of four types of actions, each represented by one of four symbols:

  • Crystal - The Magi uses energy to summon a Dream Creature to the field (limit 3).
  • Star - The Magi selects a spell to use, which the player learns by leveling up.
  • Heart - The Magi recovers 10% of his or her total energy.
  • Pouch - The Magi selects an Artifact to use. Artifacts do not consume energy but are single-use.

Upon winning a battle, the player is rewarded with in-game currency, experience and possibly an item or an animite shard. It is also possible to flee a battle, which forfeits the reward.


Both Magi and Dream Creatures use the same sequence of stats:

  • Strength - determines whether an attack will deal damage
  • Stamina - determines total Energy
  • Wisdom - determines whether the character will sustain damage
  • Luck - determines the quality of items received after winning a battle
  • Speed - determines how long it takes to recharge the action bar


Experience from battling is placed into a pool where it remains available until the player uses it to level up either the Magi or a Dream Creature. Magi can advance up to level 30, while Dream Creatures possess a level cap of 10.

Player milestones:

  • level 3: new spell
  • level 5: new spell, PVP unlocked
  • level 8: new spell
  • level 11: new spell
  • level 14: new spell
  • level 17: new spell
