Divine Magic

Divine Magic is the Magic used by Priests. Its "spells" are appeals and prayers to the Gods, so no Research is required. With the exception of a single spell, Divine "spells" cost no additional Fatigue to use, but still incur Spellcasting Encumbrance. A successful Magic Resistance check negates all offensive Divine spells.

Blessing

Spell name Paths Spell description Effect
Blessing holy 11 This prayer can be used to bless the priest or a group of sacred warriors. Blessed units receive increased morale and additional powers if their God is powerful enough to claim a divine title. Applies your Bless to friendly Sacred units in 5 (+5 for every extra Priest level) squares within 15 (+10 for every extra Priest level) squares of the caster.
Divine Blessing holy 33 This is the same as the Blessing prayer, except that it affects all holy units on the entire battlefield. Blesses all of your teammates on the field that can be blessed, but takes 25% longer to cast.

Banishment spells

All Banishment spells require holy 11 and affect only Undead foes. You will have only one of these accessible to you in each game; you'll get a different spell from the generic Banishment if your Pretender has at least 4 in a Magic path in creation, determined by which path has the highest level, picking the leftmost path () in the event of a tie. There is no blood-specific banishment spell; if this is the highest path of your pretender, you receive the default banishment spell instead.
