Mortals are more effective when used against other mortals - kill your opponent's mortal forces and you will deprive his god of much needed energy.

The faith level of the warband is tracked with dice at the side of the table. When the faith level is at the maximum, the army is bolstered, priests may invoke miracles and curses, mortal tr...
