The Adellos inlay. With space for everything. :)
The Adellos inlay. With space for everything. :)
At home in graveyards, bogs and crypts, the fearsome 'Undead' are the bane of all the civilized lands of Tarnaris. As their leader you can overrun the lands with a horde of rotting zombies or stun your foes with the abhorrent ghouls. Your vampires and thralls are numerous and grow with every bite they take. Better yet: Although your gravediggers will "find" treasures within the graves of the fallen, you don't depend on that since a lot of your troops are summoned with patience instead of hired with coins.

When the royals forgot about the simple folks the 'Rebels' were born. Once hidden inside the woods and narrow streets they made their move and are now a force to be reckoned with. The bandits and thieves are strong fighters and gather resources at the same time. Filthy beggars roam the streets in secret and gather coins to finance the resistance against the king. Your reckless battle ragers are the strongest units of all factions and can wreak havoc even inside your enemies' bases. The time of your uprising is now!

As the leader of the holy faction "Clergy" you have the whole power of all the god-fearing men and women under your control. Lead mighty paladins into battle or slay the unholy vampires with your skilled vampire hunters. Your parsons can bless your troops for more damage while your guards are strong defenders and your deacon will collect coins from the religious folks to finance your holy mission.

    Adellos - Inlay (Perk)

    The most common suggestion on Adellos has been, that it could use an inlay. If you already own a game you can get one (from „The Game Doctors“) that fits perfectly and also you'll get the stretch goals with this perk!
    [Take care! Choosing this perk means, you ONLY get an inlay. You will not recieve a game. If you want a game + inlay + stretch goals, there is a different perk for that.]

    Anti-Perk: The Worst Unit Ever!

    You got a fancy Idea for unit? Well, we can create it. But it's gonna be the worst unit ever. Like, really...so weak, you'll hate it. And it's even getting better, 'cause it can be created pretty much the way you want. You hate your Ex? Well than make them a unit in the Adellos-Universe, and kill 'em ingame! :D
    Oh, also that unit will then be a part of every game, including yours, of course.

    Meet 'n' Greet... and Pizza! (Perk)

    We will come to your door, with a pizza in hand and time to talk about whatever you are interested in. Meet the developer and the author and learn to hate us the way we hate each other. Just be aware that the developer will drink too much booze (and possibly insults you) and the author will touch everything you own (and possibly breaks something). You need to be at least 18 and live in Germany for that reward.
