Players can choose a main character from four different positions. Two of which are gods, each representing a facet of either continued evolution or a repeated cycle of destruction and creation. The third is a druid who wishes to maintain the natural order of the current world, seeking neither evolution nor destruction and recreation of the current world. The final one is a regular denizen without special abilities, selectable from the Gallery.
For information about starting settings look here.
Each god and the druid have unique abilities and traits that will influence gameplay, and while most units are available to the player regardless of who you choose, some units become easier or harder to acquire, and some Uniques aren't available to all. Whichever characters the player does not choose will be opposing the player in story missions, with their unique flavor of units and abilities.
|Evolution, also known as Nila, is the god of change and preservation with a hopeful and optimistic view. She wishes to defend the world's inhabitants and guide them in the right direction. She is capable of changing her own body, adapting and transforming into different species to gain abilities for a wide range of options.
Specialty: Power, Adaptability and Flexibility
|Creation, also known as Siena or Rowan, is the pragmatically minded god of destruction and rebirth with a hopeless and realistic view. They wish to reset the world in order to start a better one. They have the ability to create life, and summon creatures with abilities they normally couldn't have.
Specialty: Creating and Customizing Units
|The Druid, also known as Viridion or Viridya, is a royal with an opportunistic view. They wish for neither destruction and rebirth or guided evolution of the world, but instead believes that the world should be ruled by its own inhabitants, and won't pass up the opportunity to end the cycle. As they grow stronger, they develop unique abilities that makes them a formidable opponent to the weakened gods.
Specialty: Stacking Abilities and Synergies
