Doors can be used as defense, for controlling creature movement, or for improving room efficiency. They block all non-friendly units from passing trough, and are mostly used to halt enemies or lock creatures in a specific region of a dungeon. They can be locked and unlocked by the Keeper that owns the door.

When a door is open because a creature is near it, enemy creatures can sneak in. You can use this to your advantage against a Keeper that has a lot of doors but keeps them unlocked.

A Ghost has a special ability that allows it to pass trough any door, even if it is locked.
