Stage 1: Mines of Mirotehn

[+] SPOILER
Comic Intro

Panel 1: "We, the Dwarves of the West, devote our lives to the earth."
*A great underground city of the Dwarves is shown.*

Panel 2: "Some mine the earth for its riches..."
*Dwarves deep in the mines are shown.*

Panel 3: "...while others experiment to better utilize it."
*A dwarven scientist is shown experimenting with crystals.*

Panel 4: "But sometimes, the earth fights back!"
*The shadows of stone giants are shown sneaking up on an unsuspecting miner.*



General!

You command a portion of the forces of the great Dwarven city of Mirotehn. We mine the riches deep beneath the mountains, and trade with our allies in the Elf-lands and Linirea. It has been a long time since any of us have gone to war, as most threats have been destroyed far before they reach the city. But now, our miners report that the earth itself has been working against them, many dying to severe cave-ins, and a string of suspicious disappearances deep in the mines. Only a few days prior did a lone survivor of an ambushed mining crew warn us that strange, rock-like creatures march toward us even now. We must defend the innocents, and destroy this ominous force!

-Wave 5: Hero Spell: Quarry
-Wave 6: Spell: Burner Beam


Burner Beam
This dwarven super-weapon uses the sun's power to unleash devastating blasts of light! (Cooldown: 80 seconds)
The usage on this is different from other spells. Instead of a tap and destruction, the beam follows your finger for 5 seconds, dealing a healthy amount of true damage per second. If you do nothing after tapping, it'll just stay in place.


Stalis

While appearing weak on the outside, this entity hardens its wet skin into hard armor.

HP: 75
Damage: 2-4 (Punches slowly, every 1.5 seconds.)
Armor: None
Speed: Medium
Lives Taken: 1

Abilities
-Dry: Gains 6% physical armor every 5 seconds, stacking up to 90%.

Death Animation: Dissolves into a pile of goo.

Appearance: A weak, mud-like enemy, with no discernible legs and arms to punch with. As it moves, its skin will harden into cracked clay armor. It has glowing red eyes.

Notes: For a starter enemy, it can be decently difficult to deal with. Mages are key.


Coaler

This small glowing rock burns with bright flame, dying to burn those who oppose it.

HP: 60
Damage: 5 AoE fire damage, per second for 5 seconds. Stacks. (Creates an aoe flame ring every second.)
Speed: Medium
Lives Taken: 1

Death Animation: The Coaler glows red, and the flame on its head burns blue as it burns to ashes.

Appearance: A small glowing lump of coal, with stubby legs, and a red flame mimicking hair on its head.

Notes: A wave of these can deal large amounts of damage to barracks, but will die easily to AoE towers.


Achievements
Fossil Fuel: Defeat 300 Coalers.





Stage 2: Port of Arethun

[+] SPOILER
We have chased the stone creatures from our mines, to the Port of Arethun. This port is where we recieved most of our trade, but as we emerge from the tunnel, we find that most of it has been burned, likely by the small coal-like creatures. A few merchant ships still prowl the waters, though their allegiance may be... questionable. However, upon exiting the mines, we were ambushed by the creatures! Defend the Chiefdom's lands from the Stone hordes!

Level Features
Merchant Ship: On all even numbered waves, a merchant ship will sail to one of the docks, and for 40 gold you can buy cannonfire. (About 35-65 damage)

Recurring Enemies: Stalis, Coaler
New Enemies: Quartzling, Obsidge

Level Events
-Wave 1: Temple Worship Tutorial
-Wave 3: God Spells

Worship
When tapped on, the Temple has an option to send a barracks unit to the temple, removing them from the map and granting worship points, based on various factors. These points work as experience for the active god. Powers are upgraded from the menu.

God Spell: Cetuda: Fissure (80 seconds)
Opens a small fissure, insta-killing a few ground enemies in the area.

God Spell: Zezzar: Sandstorm (80 seconds)
Creates a sandstorm at the target area, dealing light damage (50-100) and slowing enemies that enter the area for 75%. Lasts for 8 seconds.


Quartzling

This paradoxical hunk of crystal can not only float, but also fire shards of crystal at our men!

HP: 90
Damage: 5-8 (Fires shards of crystal every second.)
Speed: Medium
Lives Taken: 1

Abilities:
-Flying

Death Animation: Explodes in a shower of crystals.

Appearance: The quartzling is comprised mainly of clear crystal, with an orb at the center which glows with red light. A ring of sharp crystals orbit around it.

Notes: A weak flying enemy, but capable of attacking soldiers, and it comes quite frequently as air support.


Obsidge

Fast for a creature of stone, the Obsidge's sharp blades must be watched.

HP: 130
Damage: 6-9 (Stabs every 1.2 seconds.)
Magic Resist: 20%
Speed: Fast
Lives Taken: 1

Death Animation: Shatters like glass.

Achievements
Strength of Arms: Kill 50 enemies with cannonfire..




Stage 3: The Dragon's Spine

[+] SPOILER
We have left Arethun, and begun to cross the Dragon's Spine to answer a distress call from miners in the Goldtip Peaks. It has been a long and hard crossing, for these islands were named the Dragon's Spine for a reason. While a naval crossing would be easier, many of our ships were burned, and these waters are unforgiving to all but the most powerful ships.

We still fight off Stone Giant attacks from all sides, but this site seems a good place to establish a chokepoint. If we succeed, we can drive the Giants back from our homeland!

Watch Your Step: Kill 100 enemies on a bridge on Stage 3.




Stage 4: Goldtip Peaks

[+] SPOILER
After the hard battle on the Spine, we have come to the Goldtip Peaks. As implied by the name, many a dwarf mines gold here to fund the Chiefdom. However, much of the gold had either been stolen by the giants or others seeking to profit. These are our mines, General, and we must defend them.

To aid us, we have hired the Deepearth Miners, a specialized group of dwarves who spend almost their entire lives deep underground, mining the mineral deepstone, which has special, anti-magic properties.

Stage 5: Datrun Taiga

[+] SPOILER
The giants have been driven from our lands, and our scientists having begun tracing their unique biological signals northwards. However, to get there, we must cross the frigid permafrost of the Datrun Taiga. At the very least, we are glad the summer has come, so perhaps it won't be as cold.

While most of our labs remain in ruins, we can rely on the frontiersmen of this area to assist us in this endeavor. Though their technology is lacking, their accuracy is unmatched.

Salty: Kill 300 Natrums.




Stage 6: The Crystal Fields

[+] SPOILER
We have arrived at a depression in the tundra, filled with many crystals of various shapes, sizes, and colors. Each seems to give off a natural resonance, which unfortunately interferes with our equipment to detect the Stone Giants. In the small periods which the devices do work, they indicate a massive force of Stone Giants gathering at the periphery, an ill omen indeed.
However, our engineers have found a way to use the crystals found around the temple to create a powerful weapon known as the CARVR. Perhaps its capabilities will be enough to turn the tide.


Map:

Level Events

Boss Wave
After defeating wave 15, the diamond crystal near the top of the screen will glow, before shattering, unveiling Diamanthus, the first boss. Diamanthus walks toward the southwesterly exit.

Death Animation: Shatters, leaving a single, large white diamond.

Appearance: A massive diamond being, somewhat like Durax. Diamanthus has three eyes, one blue, one red, one yellow.

Notes: The boss poses a danger in the sense that it can quickly stack damage from taking magic hits, which are the only things that pierce its armor.


Achievements

Void Lens: Hit 50 enemies with a single Prismatic Lance. {Reward: Prismatic Lance now has infinite range.}

Stage 7: Hyporeal Glacier

[+] SPOILER
Comic Intro

Panel 1: "The Hyporeal Glacier..."
*A dwarven expedition is shown, heading out on to the ice.*

Panel 2: "...better known as the Ice Wastes, or the Land of the Lost."
*A wide shot of the massive ice plain.*

Panel 3: "A chill wind sweeps over the land..."
*Two dwarves bundle up their winter gear.*

Panel 4: "...and who knows what it brings."
*A sword descends on the dwarves, and they see themselves in the blade the instant before it strikes.*


Ice. Ice. And more ice.
This can only describe one thing, the massive Hyporeal Ice Sheet, stretching over countless meters. The sheet is massive, and though we know that Linirea lies eastwards, none of the exploration parties we have sent over the sheet have returned. It is possible that they were trapped in a blizzard, or perhaps more sinister forces are at play. Despite this, we must brave the cold, as it holds mysteries for us to uncover, and in the process, we might be able to protect our homeland.

On the bright side, we have begun to receive our materials through tunnels from the capital, as an overland or sea voyage would be too costly. The machines used to dig these tunnels could be easily "appropriated" for war, though...

Stage 8: The Frozen Lake

[+] SPOILER
We have trekked further through this desolate wasteland, and found what appears to be a lake, frozen over in the harsh cold. While it provides little to us, the area around it may be used as a chokepoint against these hideous ice creatures, especially now that the research industries in Mirotehn are back online, ready to supply us with automated Sentry Turrets. Furthermore, the ice of the lake has odd properties, which our engineers believe could be useful in weapons manufacturing.

Though the lake is frozen, our scanners indicate something is alive, underneath all the ice. How something could survive below the ice, we do not know, but we intend to find out.


Map:

Image
Link: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... 34/D08.png


Level Features
Dragon Egg: Hatched by firing a Burner Beam at it. The ice on the lake above it is clearer than the rest of the lake. (Couldn't quite play with transparency)

Death Animation: Shatters.

Appearance: A humanoid ice-crystal being, with a large armblade, like Durax's. Essentially a larger Frosteel, with red eyes.

Notes: While not especially strong on its own, a Hyporus has the potential to quickly spawn large enemy forces deep in your lines, so keeping it away from Barracks is essential.

Tiny living snowflakes that freeze foes in their tracks.

HP: 125
Damage: None.
Magic Resist: 40%

Abilities
-Flying

Stage 9: Icicle Path

[+] SPOILER
In desperate need of shelter from the bitter cold, we have taken refuge in a network of caves under the icesheet, which our troops have begun to call the Icicle Path, so named for the massive amounts of icicles hanging from the roofs of the caverns. Even though the wind no longers hits us, it is still bitter cold, and the enemy keeps making it more cold.

Luckily for us, the Capital has sent us a package full of technology which could help us fend off the enemies, though they may not be able to keep us warm.


Map:

Stage 10: Erebus

[+] SPOILER
Emerging from the icy tunnels, we've come across what appears to be an active volcano, against all reason. Indeed, not just active, but erupting!
One of our engineers has expertise in geology, and has volunteered to assist us in combating the possible effects of ash flows and what not.

In addition, Mirotehn has sent a crown jewel of our defensive arsenal - the Missile Battery. Its auto-acquiring properties will surely help us in the ash clouds from the icy mountain.


Map:

Lives Taken: 3

Abilities

Stage 11: Broken Floes

[+] SPOILER
Somehow, our travels have taken us to the edge of the ice sheet, where massive bergs of ice cleave off the greater mass of the glacier, before floating off to the southern seas. It is dangerous to fight here, yet the ice creatures have begun to engage us in combat.

Our meteorologists report that a storm seems to be brewing, of a size never before seen...

Stage 12: Fog of Nightmares

[+] SPOILER
Comic Intro

Panel 1: "Our adventure has led us to an unknown land..."
*Dwarves step onto the shore, confused at how they sink a few centimeters into the ground.*

Panel 2: "A land of promise, and a land of ruin."
*An expedition is shown, investigating ruined structures.*

Panel 3: "May our gods protect us..."
*A scared party of dwarves is shown, trembling.*

Panel 4: "For this may be our greatest challenge yet!"
*Shadowed eyes are visible in the thick purple fog.*


We have recieved a distress call from the Elves and Linireans! They request our aid in exploring a newly-discovered island to the south, which seems to be covered in a deep fog. What nightmares may lurk within we cannot be sure, and of course it would be a show of good will to aid them.

The troops that were first to land report that the very ground beneath their feet is... strange. As if walking through shallow water, if that is at all possible. However, they also report that shadowed figures surround us on all sides. But we've come too far to turn back now. We must defend the landing site!

Speed: Medium

Stage 13: Shadowrage

[+] SPOILER
It seems that our old enemies, the Balrogs, have returned once again. They once destroyed the dwarves residing on the Elven continent, and have always troubled us. Their mastery of shadow magic is very effective deep within our mines. Their rage is legendary, and its very mention strikes fear into the hearts of our men.

Additionally, our historians have discovered that, the Island's odd traits make it bear remarkable similarities to Isle of Zaagwen, which sank below the waves long ago. However, remnants of the grand civilization that once ruled these lands are discovered occasionally on the shores of our lands, indicating a catastophe may have destroyed them. Whatever tragedy befell them, may soon strike us, so be wary, General.

Death Animation: Decays into mist, releasing an orb of white light.

Appearance: A Balrog with bright white skin cracks and cloud of mist surrounding it.

Notes: Like all proper Balrogs, the Mistweaver can boost magic resistance/armor. However, its mist is especially dangerous, since it benefits multiple enemies at once.

-Darkened Light: Pauses, before creating 3 rings of blackness on the ground around it, in a target shape. Each ring stuns towers hit for 2/4/6 seconds, depending on the distance from the center. Boosts magic resist by 20% for each tower hit. CD: 12 seconds

Death Animation: Releases a pulse of black light before exploding, and then releasing an orb of white light.

Appearance: Flying Balrog, with feathery wings. Blue skin cracks and white eyes.

Achievements
Thud!: Find an ill omen.




Stage 14: Shards of Power

[+] SPOILER
It is a dark day, General. Our scouting parties report two massive golden pedestals ahead, with a single gem floating atop each. Furthermore, each is surrounded by a nimbus of crystal shards, which seem to draw power from the gems. Our priests have begun to sense odd energies in the air around them, energies similar to those they themselves harness. The thought that our enemies may have access to the power of our gods is troublesome, to say the least.

The fog has begun to clear a tad as we head further inland, but the enemy attacks have only strengthened. Assaulted from all sides, morale has dropped to an all-time low. Despite this, we must prevail, for our allies and homeland are counting upon us, and thus our enemies shall fall before our hammers!

New Enemies: Lesser, Transcendant


Lesser

A Lesser Transcendant, it acts as a beacon to draw other Transcendants to this world.

Damage: 5-15 (Slashes every 0.25 seconds.)
Speed: Fast
Lives Taken: 3

Abilities

Transcendant

Ascended creatures of a higher plane. While powerful, their anchor to this plane is not complete, and thus they are not at full power.

HP: 1800

Magic Resist: 100%

-Transcend: Spawns automatically when a Shadestrider or Mistweaver is killed.

Death Animation: White light erupts from its chest, before exploding, leaving a pile of green goo.

Appearance: A sharp angled humanoid of white light and with black eyes. It carries a sword of rainbow shards.

Notes: Both the Transcendant and the Lesser are incredibly dangerous enemies. Beginning with Transcend, more often that not, they spawn at the end of the track, and, when the faster Lessers are killed, the Transcendants gain the speed and heal, making them even more threatening. Of course, the Unanchored ability also means you need a varied defense, lowering the effective possible DPS.


Achievements
Plane of Mind: Kill 500 Lessers or Transcendants.




Stage 15: Skyreach Tower

[+] SPOILER
We have come to the edge of the fog, only to find a massive shimmering tower reaching high into the heavens. The tower thrums with power, though of so many types that we cannot determine a single source. The ground quakes and glows, while the air has a constant haze to it. Whatever occult magics or technology are at the root of the tower, they pose a significant threat. The Transcendants gather at the base of the tower, and it appears as though their leaders have come to taunt us.

However, all is not lost, as we have encountered expeditions from the Elves and Humans, who promise to aid us in the conflict to come. Surely it will be written in the sagas as one of the greatest battles.

For the Chiefdom!

You get an achievement, It's Over: Defeat the Transcendant leaders.



After killing the leaders, the orbs indicating their deaths fly into 3 niches on the side of the tower. It thrums with power, before unleashing a screen-filling white light, like most normal endings. When the dust settles, the true boss, Apotheosis, has appeared on the telepad.


Apotheosis

A god of infinite power, made flesh. Pray that we can survive.

While you may seem absolutely screwed, your patron god, with what little power remains in their hands, has summoned an Avatar to aid you in your fight.

Respawn: 60 seconds

Ability: Push: Summons a smidgen of godly power, to push away the nearest units, including Apotheosis. 10 second CD.

The Avatar does not heal naturally, however, any Worship points gained after starting the boss battle will both heal it at a 40% conversion rate, and reduce its respawn, if dead, by 1 second per 25 points.

Furthermore, for every 3000/3500/4000 damage dealt, Apotheosis loses control of a set of powers.
For followers of Cetuda, Apotheosis loses Cetuda's, Zezzar's, Ederus's, Sagate's, Elynie's, and finally Regnos's powers.
For followers of Zezzar, Apotheosis loses Zezzar's, Cetuda's, Sagate's, Ederus's, Regnos's, and finally Elynie's powers.

Upon the fight's conclusion, Apotheosis explodes, releasing the screen-filling white light once more. And yet, despite the corpses of the other two leaders behind them, the main leader, Qagejos, lives, barely, and begins crawling toward the exit. The Avatar at this point has disappeared, but the leader is unblockable.

Appearance: A large glacier, with stubby legs and black-ice eyes.

Notes: Slide can be annoying if leveraged, but otherwise its just big and tanky.


Frostfyre

Almost a living mortar, the Icefyre manipulates freezing cold gas into mortar projectiles to fire at our men!

HP: 1250
Damage: 60-100 AoE ranged, 40-70 melee (Fires a bolt of ice every 2 seconds or stabs every second.)

-Frost Explosion: Creates a short-lived frost patch on death. Lasts 6 seconds.
-Skate: Becomes fast and unblockable when on an Ice Patch.

Death Animation: Shatters.

Appearance: Still of the living mortar design, it now drags the mortar behind it, with desiccated back legs and two powerful forward claws.

Notes: Frostfyre can be a real pain, freezing things and dealing high amounts of damage. Otherwise, a magical beating can work well.


Blizzion

A living storm cloud, dark and foreboding. It takes delight in torturing those below.

HP: 2000
Damage: None
Speed: Slow
Lives Taken: 3

Abilities
-Flying
-Freezing Rain: Freezes a single soldier for 3 seconds every 1.5 seconds. Deals 50 damage upon ending.
-Sleet: Deals 10 dps to soldiers beneath it. Will not move beyond barracks until all are dead.

Death Animation: The storm dissapates.

Appearance: An angry storm cloud. What more description is necessary?

Notes: Missile Batteries are much recommended, as Lock-On is incredibly strong against these guys.

Lives Taken: 20

Abilities

Death Animation: The storm blankets the whole screen, before dissapating.

Appearance: A massive storm cloud the width of the path, with icy shards orbiting its sides and a "crown" of the shards on its head.

Notes: Again, Missile Batteries are the best counter.


Balrogs


Firebreather

A Balrog with impressive control over fire.

HP: 750
Damage: 5-15 (Punches with a fiery fist, every second.)
Speed: Medium
Lives Taken: 2

Abilities

Appearance: A medium sized Balrog, with a dark, rocky skin. Cracks with bright red lava are visible on its body, like a magma elemental.

Notes: Can get relatively tanky.


Shadestrider

Walking on a different plane, these dangerous Balrogs can bypass our defenses.

HP: 1050
Damage: 20-40 (Strikes with a black sword, every 1.4 seconds.)
Speed: Medium
Lives Taken: 2

Abilities
-Shadow Walk: Disappears into a shadow realm, bypassing soldiers and boosting speed to fast. Lasts 5 seconds, visible as a shadow on the ground. 15s CD.
-Shadow Armor: Gains 25% magic resist each time it exits Shadow Walk.

Death Animation: Explodes in black smoke, releasing a white orb.

Appearance: Another medium size Balrog, also with dark skin. However, its skin cracks are of a bright green, as are its eyes. It carries a black sword.

Notes: The stacking magic resist and the barracks ignore can be annoying, necessitating archers.


Shadwarf

A fog-spawned copy of our soldiers, its very existence is an omen.

HP: 250
Damage: 7-12 (Smashes with a hammer every 0.7 seconds.)
Speed: Medium
Armor: 60%
Lives Taken: 1

Abilities
-Shadow Fissure: Smashes the ground, opening up a fissure, which stuns barracks for 1 second and deals 150 physical damage. 10 second CD.
-Shadow Explosion: Explodes on death for 150 AoE damage.

Death Animation: Breaks into shards.

Appearance: A dark copy of a Deepstone Miner, with red eyes and a hammer. Their body is formed of a black fog.

Notes: Not an extreme issue, but annoying en-masse.


Acilrog

Balrogs which fire acid balls at our men, corrupting them into Shadwarfs.

HP: 900
Damage: 30-40 (Fires an acid ball every 1.5 seconds.)
Speed: Slow
Lives Taken: 2

Abilities
-Acid Armor: Grants 1% armor for every 5 damage dealt, including poison.
-Acidic Conversion: Poisons barracks at 5 d/s for 5 seconds, turning them into Shadwarfs if they die.


Death Animation: Dissolves, releasing a ball of white light.

Appearance: Like the other Balrogs, it has black, rocky skin. It has dull orange skin cracks, and bright red eyes.

Notes: Like the Dark Spitter, but more annoying.


Mistweaver

Using a special fog, Mistweavers obstruct our operations and aid their allies.

HP: 1200
Damage: 10-20 (Hits every 0.5 seconds in melee)
Magic Resist: 50%
Speed: Medium
Lives Taken: 2

Abilities
-Mist Creates a fog on the path, which obstructs vision and heals allies inside for 15 HP/s. Lasts 10 seconds. CD 10 seconds.
-Resist Enemies gain 2% armor and magic resist for every second spent in a mist cloud.

Death Animation: Decays into mist, releasing an orb of white light.

Appearance: A Balrog with bright white skin cracks and cloud of mist surrounding it.

Notes: Like all proper Balrogs, the Mistweaver can boost magic resistance/armor. However, its mist is especially dangerous, since it benefits multiple enemies at once.


Maiar

Winged Balrogs, they cast shadows upon us from the sky.

HP: 800
Damage: None
Speed: Medium
Lives Taken: 2

Abilities
-Flying
-Darkened Light: Pauses, before creating 3 rings of blackness on the ground around it, in a target shape. Each ring stuns towers hit for 2/4/6 seconds, depending on the distance from the center. Boosts magic resist by 20% for each tower hit. CD: 12 seconds

Death Animation: Releases a pulse of black light before exploding, and then releasing an orb of white light.

Appearance: Flying Balrog, with feathery wings. Blue skin cracks and white eyes.

Notes: Darkened Light is a very dangerous if the Maiar manages to successfully use it, and as such, long-ranged snipers like the Arquebusier are a good counter.


Lesser

A Lesser Transcendant, it acts as a beacon to draw other Transcendants to this world.

HP: 900
Damage: 5-15 (Slashes every 0.25 seconds.)
Speed: Fast
Lives Taken: 3

-Beacon: Boosts nearby Transcendants' speed to Fast for 4 seconds on death.
-Anchor: Heals nearby Transcendants for 500 HP on death.
-Transcend: Spawns automatically when a Firebreather, Acilrog, or Maiar is killed.

Death Animation: White light erupts from its chest, before exploding, leaving a pile of green goo.

Appearance: A blobby humanoid of white light, with black eyes. It has a number of rainbow shards sticking out of its back and acting as claws.

Notes: It all comes full circle.


Transcendant

Ascended creatures of a higher plane. While powerful, their anchor to this plane is not complete, and thus they are not at full power.

HP: 1800
Damage: 50-70 melee (Slashes with its sword every second); 100-150 ranged (Fires a single bolt of AoE true damage before entering melee)
Magic Resist: 100%
Speed: Slow
Lives Taken: 5

Abilities
-Unanchored: Starts at a magic immunity, losing 1.25% magic resist per 1% HP lost, and gaining 1.25% armor at the same rate.
-Psi Explosion: Explodes for 300 damage on death. Disables nearby special abilities for 3 seconds.
-Transcend: Spawns automatically when a Shadestrider or Mistweaver is killed.

Death Animation: White light erupts from its chest, before exploding, leaving a pile of green goo.

Appearance: A sharp angled humanoid of white light and with black eyes. It carries a sword of rainbow shards.

Notes: Both the Transcendant and the Lesser are incredibly dangerous enemies. Beginning with Transcend, more often that not, they spawn at the end of the track, and, when the faster Lessers are killed, the Transcendants gain the speed and heal, making them even more threatening. Of course, the Unanchored ability also means you need a varied defense, lowering the effective possible DPS.


Qagejos

HP: 2000
Damage: 100-150 (Hits with hammer every second)
Armor: 80%

Death Animation: Delivers a death quote before exploding into green goo, but also releasing a red orb.

Appearance: A large Transcendant, with bright red eyes and shards. A crystalline hammer is its main weapon.

Apotheosis

A god of infinite power, made flesh. Pray that we can survive.

-Chaos Field: Snaps its fingers, causing all damage from nearby towers to be minimized for 5 seconds. 20 second CD.
