SETUP

Put 2 Presenceicon.png on your starting board, in the lowest-numbered Wetland.

You start with your 4 Unique Powers and 0 Energy.

PLAY STYLE

Likes having Sacredsiteicon.png where Invaders will Build, but may need to re-create those Sacredsiteicon.png after oozing outwards with its Innate Power. In smaller games, might be able to cut off the most Inland lands from Explore actions by Destroying Inland Townicon.png/Cityicon.png and stopping new ones from being built.

Causes a fair bit of Fear, much of which represents unpleasantness, hardship, and disgust.

Fathomless Mud of the Swamp.png

From the Spirit Panel

The Island has many swampy deltas along its coasts. Some are fairly navigatable, while others are mazes of murky water, tangled trees, and land that isn't nearly so solid as it appears. Fathomless Mud of the Swamp is one of these latter sorts, with a penchant for spreading - it likes getting everywhere, slowly turning solid ground into muck and mire.

Some Dahan villages have struck fruitful bargains with it: easy passage and useful plants in exchange for tasks more easily done by human hands. Most, however, will move on to new living-grounds years early should they notice the sodden signs of it moving into their area.
[edit]
Important note: If playing as Fathomless Mud of the Swamp, you start the game with these Unique Power Cards in your hand.
