"Are they... chanting? No, they can't be. As part of his profession, Garrick had traveled to many lands and has learned even more tongues, but none of them sounded anything like the one his attackers were now speaking. Their words came out almost as growls with what Garrick could only think of as repressed screeches placed in awkwardly between words. Yet despite that, listening to them was oddly lulling. These savages must be pirates from overseas, he thought. But these men are strange, they attacked a caravan of scholars with little valuables. One of his ambushers removed the blinding mask that was placed on his face, and Garrick looked on with horror as he realised these were not pirates at all. They were fish, but with limbs and shapes like men. He was surrounded by others, purple skinned ones, who were jumping and singing in their surreal language. Directly ahead of him stood an orange skinned fish-man wearing some kind of skull mask over his long, misshapen head. Beside this one, was a stone illuminating an eerie green light with images quickly appearing and disappearing before one could make sense of any of them. Garrick tore his eyes away from the stone and searched for his companions, but couldn't see any signs of them. He raised his head to the sky and shouted out in desperation but the chorus around him drowned him completely. Then, lowering his head, he found the luminescent stone in front of him and found himself unable to tear his gaze away from what he saw. The images were now clear, and consistent but still Garrick could not comprehend it. He saw what was definitely alive but possessing the form and mass like nothing else. It had no skin and no scales, instead having exposed violet flesh that constantly twisted and unwound itself to wring out a vile gel that dripped down the being. Suddenly, a hole was ripped open from the thing to expose a large eye that stared at Garrick, and he could feel its intent. It was hungry, and he was food. The chants of the monsters around him grew louder and the scholar could feel himself being lifted up from the air by a force unseen and all powerful. The orange skinned fish man began to wave his arms in the air in an awkward and unnerving motion and the stone's light shined bright, almost blinding. Garrick struggled but was unable to move at all; he was completely at overpowered by this insane event. He tried to laugh, but not a sound could escape him as he was thrust through the flashing images in front of him - and Garrick was gone."
- New resource: reverance. Reverance is gathered by Servants when they cast revere on the Broken God. It is consumed to build units, to build certain structures or cast certain abilities.
- The Broken God is a unique structure that cannot be built, but can be upgraded at the cost of Reverance. If the Broken God is killed, reverance cannot be gained or consumed. Scroll of Town Portal will only work on the Broken God but not on Forgotten Temples.
-Contains many powerful abilities to subvert enemy forces, including mana-breaking spells.
While they don't have any early options to attack rushes, the Broken God can use a strong heal on surrounding allies at the cost of reverance, as well as dispel buffs or destroy summons.
True sight and invisible units:
- Basilisks have the Keen Perception ability, which allows them to see invisible units.
- Scrying Stones can cast scry which reveals a target area on the map and can detect invisible units.
- Winged Snakes can use the Hallow ability to turn invisible, but drains mana every second. Invisibility cannot be broken as long as Hallow is active.
