-> ''"It is said that [[ShroudedInMyth history becomes legend, as its events recede into the mists of time]], and that memories grow dimmer in the slumber of peace. Thus the noble peoples of Urak languished in a thousand years of peaceful splendor, growing forgetful of the dark time their land once knew, heedless of the ancient enemy who yet labored in silence. And so [[UltimateEvil Golgoth]], [[GodOfEvil the terrible god of death]], beheld that the world was ripe for an era of terror and blood. He summoned [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Balkoth]], [[TheDragon the most evil of his sorcerers]], and bestowed upon him a mighty artifact of power, that the {{necromancer}} might better serve his master in heralding the coming days of darkness. [[GiantFlyer The wings of Balkoth's wretched steed beat the air like thunder]], [[TheDreaded the land shook beneath the rumor of his mustering host]], [[OneManArmy the air was filled with cries of his victims]]. Who can say what new perils may yet befall, as they struggle to defeat the ancient evil, to reunite the land, and to become... [[TitleDrop Lords of Magic]]"''

* CriticalExistenceFailure: When two people of your three-person unit die, but when the unit is sufficiently healed they come back. If that last unit dies, however, all three are gone for good.
* CharacterAlignment: [[invoked]] While not played in the way that we see in games like ''TabletopGame/DungeonsandDragons'' this trope is still there. After choosing from one of the three leader types you must choose your elemental alignment.

Added DiffLines:

** Water is also located beside Death, but has the benefit of a sea blocking direct passage between the two in the early goings. Once Death starts developing its navy this can become a problem, but luckily [[CaptainObvious Water has the game's strongest navy to counter with]].

* CycleOfHurting: Units flinch when they get hit, and someone with slow attack speed and poor hit recovery like a fire or storm giant can end up unable to attack all when surrounded, even if the individual blows are barely hurting them. The issue can be alleviated with items that improve attack speed or hit recovery.

The issue can be alleviated with items that improve attack speed or hit recovery. This can be pretty amusing with a high level and well equipped Earth warrior champion - they are the slowest attacking warriors and thus very vulnerable to this, but also the sturdiest. Many a battle can be won by sending the dwarf champion in by himself, watching him disappear under a swarm of weaker units and get stunlocked for extended periods of time while taking minimal damage, only for the occasional axe to swing up above the crowd and one-shot one of the attackers.

** Balkoth has the health and armor of warrior, the spells of a mage, and the ranged attack of a thief. He counts as a mage for the purpose of equipping items though. He even ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HorseOfADifferentColor flies]]''.
