New Creatures

This group of new creatures simply adds to the basic Titan game. You can still recruit normally, and it is probably still the best bet, unless you wouldn't be able to recruit otherwise. The first level of creatures can be recruited on demand, just as tower creatures can be recruited in the tower regardless of what else you have in the legion. The terrains listed are the only places these creatures can be recruited even though they can join to recruit other creatures in other terrains. These creatures are native to the terrains in which they can be recruited.

Terrain Creature Factors Special Effects Number Available
brush marten 2-4 a piece killing a marten can not carry over hits to another piece 22
desert hawk 2-5*   18
hills wolf 3-3   35
jungle panther 5-3   22
marsh snake 4-2 each hit causes double damage 22
mountains lynx 3-3   20
plains eagle 2-5*   22
swamp lizard 5-2   18
tower regular tower creature    
tundra lynx 3-3    
woods wolf 3-3    

The second level of creatures are recruited with two different kinds of creatures in a terrain where neither is native. The creature being recruited is native to this terrain and can recruit others of its own kind. There are 10 of each creature available.

The creatures in the preceding table can combine with each other in a variety of different terrains to recruit the third level, which are demilords. These demilords can recruit others like themselves only in the tower. There are 5 of each demilord available.

mountains or swamp dryad, knight, and sasquatch assassin 8-5 Does triple damage when striking heroes, lords, or demilords.
plains or tundra basilisk, mammoth, and roc healer 8-5 Instead of striking, the healer can heal 8 points of damage on any adjacent piece. The healer's touch also dispels fear and paralyzation, although the healer is not itself immune to these.
marsh or mountains basilish, gorilla, and medusa illusionist 6-5~ On its movement phase the illusionist can create an illusion identical to any creature in its legion.^ It can create only one illusion at a time and the illusion disappears if the illusionist moves or is forced to fight. Illusions cause damage normally and are immune to damage from any piece below skill level 4. The illusion disappears at the end of the 1st melee round in which it is hit.
desert or jungle demon, mammoth, and medusa necromancer 7-4~ Magical rangestrike.^ A legion containing a necromancer can recruit from the dead pile. At the end of a battle the necromancer can raise from the dead any friendly piece in its legion killed in that battle.
jungle or tundra dryad, knight, and phoenix phantom 7-5* On its movement phase the phantom can move and strike after other combat has been resolved. It is still pinned when adjacent to an opposing piece. As part of an attacking legion the phantom may stay off the board during the friendly movement phase, reserving its movement and combat until other combat has been resolved. If it does not enter the board before the defensive players 2nd movement phase it is lost.
brush or hills demon, gorilla, and phoenix sorcerer 8-4~ Magical rangestrike.^ A hit by a sorcerer destroys the magical ability of the piece it hits, along with anything it was carrying, for the duration of the battle.^ A hit by a sorcerer that kills a piece destroys the magic in its items permanently, divine items are excepted.^

In addition to those new creatures and demilords, there is also a new class of lords, a lord for each type of creature except colossus, hydra, and serpent. There is one of each of these creature lords, and they follow all the normal rules for lords in Titan. To recruit such a lord, you must have 5 [4 in a game with four or more players] of that creature type in the prescribed terrain.

Lord Terrain Factor Special Ability

Demon marsh 15-6~ Magical rangestrike.^ Whenever it hits, it causes the opposing piece to run away in fear.^ When a piece is fearstruck special movement rules apply: The owning player first MAY move pieces with a higher natural skill factor and mounted pieces. Then if the fearstruck piece is not pinned, the Demon Lord player may move it, following normal movement rules with two exceptions: it cannot voluntarily engage another piece and it must exit the battleboard [its own edge] if possible. After the fearstruck piece moves, the owning player moves the rest of his pieces. Any pieces that flee reunite with their legion if it survives but are lost (with no points to the victor) and return to the recruiting pool if their legion is destroyed. See special rule for Titan withdrawal.

Gorilla jungle 24-3 When the Gorilla Lord gives a piece at least two hits, it may automatically kill that piece as its attack in the next round. The Gorilla Lord can decline this attack and strike normally.
Griffin desert 15-5 Before or during a battle the Griffin Lord can retreat its entire legion to another space.^ To do so, the legion makes a movement die roll and makes a normal movement. If it enters another battle it may not retreat again. It cannot move to where another battle is to be fought or land on a friendly legion, the legion must stay and fight in either of these cases. If the legion retreats before battle, the attacking legion completes its movement.

Troll marsh 24-3 Regenerates 4 hits per melee round. Cannot regenerates hits caused by fire (Phoenix, Dragons, and their Lords).
