Spell scrolls[edit | edit source]

While enchantments affect the game passively, you can use spell scrolls to directly change what is happening on the board. They can cause a variety of effects, including damaging and healing units, unsummoning units, raise and decrease attack/countdown/defense values, etc.

You need a certain amount of resources to summon a certain scroll, to get these resources you have to sacrifice other scrolls that have the same type of resource.

Cost[edit | edit source]

The type of resource and the amount needed of that resource are depicted on the scroll using one of the three icons above and a number next to it.

Attack/Countdown/Health[edit | edit source]

Creature and structure scrolls have an attack, a countdown and a health value:

  • The attack value indicates the amount of damage the unit will inflict upon the targeted enemy.
  • The countdown value indicates how many turns there are left until the unit attacks.
  • The health value counts as hitpoints, the value can be lowered by an attack or a spell, when it reaches zero the unit is destroyed.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Most scrolls have abilities that can do a lot of different things. They can be found on the description section of the scroll.

Talents[edit | edit source]

Main article: Talent

Talents, also called traits, are a specific type of abilities. Just as any ability, a talent alters or adds to the behavior of the scroll it's on. However, because its mechanics is very common, a talent isn't described with full sentences but is only represented by keywords.

Flavor Text[edit | edit source]

Some scrolls contain "flavor text" eg a quote or a descriptive line about the scroll. It is displayed in italic near the bottom of the scroll.
