** Death 2 and turning all of your resources into death magic, especially as the [[EvilSorcerer Sheaim]]. All non-summoning-based strategies are now obsolete.

** Death 2 and turning all of your resources mana nodes into death magic, especially as the [[EvilSorcerer Sheaim]]. Sheaim]], who can get it earlier than everyone else. All non-summoning-based strategies are now obsolete. obsolete as your legions of [[LightningBruiser base-strength-7 Spectres]] overrun the map, all without ever risking any of the units you paid hammers for.

* ThatOneBoss: Any enemy civ's HeroUnit would count, but the most notable ones among the barbarians are Orthus, a warlord who appears early in the game to terrorize and eliminate any unprepared players who happen to be nearby, and Acheron, a really nasty dragon who is supposed to be optional but may spawn right outside your borders. The most [[GoddamnedBats irritating]] HeroUnit is Loki, who can't be killed unless he is surrounded or in a city. This wouldn't be so bad except for the facts that he can enter enemy borders at will and flip cities without culture, such as all new cities unless you have a certain trait.

* CompleteMonster: Auric Ulvin, who [[spoiler:sacrificed the peaceful Cassiel in a sufficient gory way to make the Doviello warriors have some (few) [[EvenEvilHasStandards remorses]], gave the mercenary-king Tasunke [[DevourTheDragon as lunch]] for his dragon, and performed a ritual consuming the souls of the Illians. And [[ForTheEvulz why]]? Only for the sake of making Erebus return to a new [[VideoGame/FallFromHeavenAgeOfIceAge of Ice]] and reign on it as god]].
** And Hyborem gives a foretaste of his wickedness when he [[spoiler:lets his [[NightmareFuel flies-infested demons]] rape the wife and the young girl of a guardsman [[DespairEventHorizon in front of him]].]]

* UnfortunateImplications: Likely because of the exotic feel of some of the languages used in the original game, many of them have been recycled for this mod. This creates an unfortunate situation where some of the more morally ambiguous cultures are represented by real world languages. The [[CircusOfFear Balseraphs]] speak French, though this may be a ShoutOut to Creator/CirqueDuSoleil.
** The cinematic for founding the Ashen Veil, the aforementioned completely irredeemable ReligionOfEvil? A statue of the Buddha. Appropriately redecorated, of course (all but two of the religion cinematics are just retextured versions of the Civ4 ones), but still, Symbolism Backlash much?

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker: Without a doubt, Chalid Astrakein is one of these. The Religious Hero of the Empryrean, he possesses a spell, Piller of Fire, that turns enemy deathstacks into an absolute joke. Basically, every time he casts it (and he can cast it every turn) the largest stack within two tiles of him gets absolutely ''devastated''. It doesn't matter how many units are in there, they will all take tremendous damage, leaving them with only 20% of their health, and thus, 20% of their attack power. It can't outright ''kill'' them, but since losing health weakens their fighting power, the stack is easy pickings for your army.

* CompleteMonster: Nearly all evil leaders can pretend to be this, but if you restrain yourself to the scenarios, Auric Ulvin, who [[spoiler:sacrificed the peaceful Cassiel in a sufficient gory way to make the Doviello warriors have some (few) [[EvenEvilHasStandards remorses]], gave the mercenary-king Tasunke [[DevourTheDragon as lunch]] for his dragon, and performed a ritual consuming the souls of the Illians.

** And then, there's the Ashen Veil. They constantly KickTheDog and the backstory makes crystal clear that there's absolutely nothing redeemable about those guys: A ReligionOfEvil centered around DealWithTheDevil and ForTheEvulz, with cultists coming in three flavors -power-hungry ones who didn't realize yet that EvilIsNotAToy, fools recruted by the Faust-wannabees who have to fulfill their part of the contract, and NietzscheWannabe ones who have fully embraced the ideals of Agares and just want to destroy the world.
