Clarifications of Abyss

Unveiling the Mysteries of the Deep

As I explore the enigmatic depths of the ocean, I can’t help but wonder about its many secrets. The ocean conceals a world of wonder and mystery, teeming with life that is both beautiful and awe-inspiring. There is an inherent allure to the unknown that beckons us to dive deeper and uncover its hidden truths.

When I plunge into the depths, I am immediately struck by the vibrant tapestry of colors that surround me. The gentle sway of coral reefs, the graceful movements of marine creatures, and the play of light filtering through the water create a mesmerizing spectacle. Each dive is an opportunity to witness the breathtaking beauty that resides within the ocean’s embrace.

But the ocean is not merely a playground for the eyes; it also holds vital lessons for humanity. As I swim alongside majestic creatures such as dolphins and whales, I am reminded of the interconnectedness of all life on Earth. The ocean serves as a reminder that we are not separate from nature, but rather a part of it.

However, the ocean is more than just a source of inspiration and wonder. It also plays a crucial role in maintaining the delicate balance of our planet. The ocean acts as a vast reservoir, absorbing vast amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and regulating our climate. Its currents distribute heat around the globe, shaping weather patterns and influencing the stability of our climate systems.

While the ocean provides us with invaluable resources, it is also important to recognize our responsibility to protect its fragile ecosystems. Human activities such as pollution, overfishing, and climate change pose significant threats to the health of the ocean. As stewards of this planet, it is our duty to ensure that future generations can continue to experience the wonders that the ocean has to offer.

So, as you embark on your own journey of exploration and discovery, take a moment to reflect on the immense importance of the ocean. Consider the countless creatures that call it home, the vital role it plays in our planet’s well-being, and the responsibility we have to preserve it. Together, we can ensure that the mysteries of the deep continue to captivate and inspire us for generations to come.

When I recruit you, I’ll check how many Allies you have in your hand. If you have more than 6, you’ll have to get rid of the extras by choosing which ones to discard.

As long as I’m in front of you, you can keep adding Allies to your hand. You can explore the depths or ask the Council for support to get more Allies. But remember, at the end of your turn, you’ll have to decide which Allies to discard if you have more than 6 in your hand.


When the Assassin targets Lords, their Influence Points are the only thing that matters at the end of the game. Their Power and any Keys they have don’t have any effect anymore. It’s like they’re turned to face a different direction, 90 degrees from where they were before.

But even though the Assassin takes away their Influence Points, the targeted Lords are still free. They can be discarded by the Traitor or the Schemer. And when a replacement Lord comes into play, they are immune to the Assassin’s effect. They can use their Powers and Keys without any issue.


So, imagine you’re playing a game called Master of Magic. You’re faced with a choice – do you fight a Monster even though the Threat token is on the first space of the Threat track? Well, here’s the thing: even if you decide to go for it, you’ll still get the reward that’s linked to that space. Pretty cool, huh? It’s like a little bonus for taking on the challenge.

When you meet the requirements for recruitment, something interesting happens. The weakest ally becomes a part of the team. But that’s not all! The Lord steps in and unleashes their power. This power, however, only affects future recruits. If an ally was already affiliated before the Master of Magic joined the game, their recruitment remains unchanged. So, what does this mean? It means that when you meet the conditions for recruitment, you not only gain a new ally but also unlock the potential of the Lord’s power. It’s like adding a secret weapon to your arsenal. Pretty cool, huh? But wait, there’s more! I have to tell you about the traitor and schemer.

Hey there! So, when you bring in one of these two Lords, you get to unleash their Power on one of your other free Lords – y’know, the ones you haven’t used to control a Location yet.

Now, here’s the interesting part – the Assassin’s Power, for instance, can also go after the Lords affected by the Traitor and the Schemer (check out Assassin for more deets).

But wait, there’s more! As soon as you bring in the new Lord to the game, you can make use of their Power right away. Pretty cool, huh?
