Release Lord of Civilization

The caster performs a vast sacrifice of blood to release one of the six Grigori from their infernal prison. The Grigori, or Watchers, were angelic beings who taught the forbidden lore of civilization, warcraft and magic to the Avvim at the dawn of time. The Grigori are still worshiped by the Avvim as bringers of civilization and fathers of the Nephilim.

Release Lord of Civilization is a Blood 9 blood 88 ritual for 177bloodslave that summons one of the six Grigori. The volume and intensity of the sacrifice is so huge that the caster loses 10 years of their life in return for releasing a Watcher's power. It is available only to EA Hinnom and MA Ind.

The Grigori are unique, powerful mage-priests with excellent combat stats and a plethora of strong abilities. They are one of the few units with the nowish tag, alongside EA Agartha's God Vessels and the Legion of Gods. As blood slaves are much easier to gather than other kinds of gems, these summons are absolutely worth the ostensible cost; however, the spell's location at the lofty height of Blood 9 means that being able to cast it often means you are already winning the game!

A Watcher's presence in a province enables the generation of a common good event in which they sire a blood 33holy 11random4400% Nephil son. These tainted offspring of the angels are essentially naked versions of Hinnom's heroes, and are just as powerful as that comparison suggests.

At base, the Grigori have the following abilities. Some have more for flavor or due to their paths.
