Further Notes
  • Due to the large number of highly damaging AoE moves and knockback, mages should take care to stay at maximum casting range at all times.
  • TP moves are used slowly enough to be Stunned, but it becomes extremely difficult to land after only five or so casts.

Historical Background

Sippoy, Padàti, or Bhata are the names of the "foot-soldier" piece of the ancient Indian game caturaṅga (चतुरङ्ग). It is roughly equivalent to the Pawn of modern Chess. Key ItemAtma of the Would-Be King might be a pun on the fact that it is the Pawn, rather than the King (Raja) in caturaṅga.
