* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In the 8th level, "Continental Divide", the front entrance to your base is a narrow pass. First-time players may try to seal it up with the Landbridge spell, thinking it will thwart the enemy's early rush. However, rather than going the other, long way around the world to your back entrance, the enemy Shaman will just unseal your entrance with another Landbridge spell when they come to attack you.

'''Populous: The Beginning''' is the third game in the PC strategy god games of the ''{{Populous}}'' series, developed by BullfrogProductions in 1998. The game was the first in the series to use true 3D graphics. In a radical departure from earlier games in the series, which cast the player in the role of a god influencing loyal followers, The Beginning cast the player as a shaman, who directly leads her tribe against opponents.

* DiscOneNuke: somewhat. There's no tech tree in the game, every spell and building is available right from the start. Chances are however that going for high-level spells right away WILL put you at a serious disadvantage as the enemy will mercilessly wipes you off the map by the time it's charged.
*** Blatantly false; both new spells and new facilities/units are learned from totems scattered sparsely around the game, and for completing certain objectives in some missions.

Throughout the twenty-five missions of the campaign, the player leads their tribe across a solar system, dominating enemy tribes and tapping new sources of magic, with the ultimate goal of the shaman attaining godhood itself. The game, playing very different from earlier titles, was welcomed to mixed reviews, with reviewers noting the excellent graphics; complaints were directed at the artificial intelligence and the inability of the game to decide between being a real time strategy title or god game. The PC version of the game was released November 30, 1998; a PlayStation version was later developed and released on April 2, 1999.

* SwampsAreEvil: The Swamp Spell temporarily creates a deadly patch of terrain that instantly kills any people on the land where it gets cast and whoever walks into it afterward.

* BeeAfraid: The Swarm spell. Summons a swarm of angry stinging insects that causes enemy units to panic (making them temporarily uncommandable), scatter and lightly damage them (or if they're already on the verge of death, kill them). It also forcibly vacates enemy buildings, boats and balloons, even if they have to jump out [[TooDumbToLive in the middle of water]] to not get stung.
