Slavic Mythology for Age of Mythology II

Slavic creatures have been super popular these past few centuries. Werewolves? Vampires? Witches? Zombies? Ghosts? Monsters from the Witcher? All of these monsters that you loved hearing and reading as a kid will perhaps make their debut in AoM: Retold or II.

Since these creatures thrive in the pale moonlight, I think it is important for AoM Retold or AoM II to have a day and night weather cycle.

When dusk begins, the townhall’s bell rings, and the echoes of the night creatures begin to grow stronger, the Slavic mythical units get a temporary buff to their stats until morning dawn.
