TO UNLOCK THE FUTURE, YOU MUST UNCOVER THE PAST

Now the Suvian empire is on the brink of war and treacherous forces scheme for power - meanwhile there are whispers in the shadows, whispers of the lost race.

These monsters will change their patterns and behavior depending on what your team does. Change up your actions and tactics to outwit your foes.
Use ice-spells over and over on a Fire Giant, and it will switch to its defensive state. Lure it out by using weak actions or fire-spells.
Paired monsters can be a pain in the ass, especially when they’re different types. It’s essential to get to know each monster type so you know what’s coming.
