had the chance to fool around with some of the god powers bestowed upon me and found one that I hadn't ever seen before. It works a lot like a raise dead spell, so if you're in the middle of a giant battle and find the tides turning against you, strike down with the Ancestors power and you'll suddenly find all of the fallen warriors coming back to help you in your time of need. Also like raise dead sorts of spells, the effect will only last for a short amount of time.

It's really pretty. I think it's really pretty. You like really pretty things? You'll like this game. From the units that change visually with upgrades to the water to the amazing as freaking amazing god powers like tornado and meteor shower. Oooh the meteor shower! I've seen it a million times, but it never ever gets old.

The raise dead sounds like my kind of spell! Imagine you send your entire army including lots of beefed-up big units (cavalry, MU, heroes, etc) to raid the enemy's town and it's just enough take out their whole army and some villagers but not finish off the buildings. Unfortunately you can't get your reinforcements there before he is able to crank out a bunch more units to protect his town. No problemo you raise dead, suddenly you have the full force of your original assualt crew (or most of it), already in his town, and you finish him off.

I love it... this really sounds like the kind of God Power that, used in a not-so-strategic situation would have a minor effect, but used brilliantly could be a crushing blow!

Quoted from IGN Showcase:

Apparently, a god has been split into four pieces. Oops. That's a careless god.

It appears the resurrection of Osiris is going to be in the game.

Is this "raise dead" GP the "Son of Osiris" which Bruce Shelley talked about on the interview or itīs another one? (osiris had something to deal with ressurection didnīt he?)

I'm surprised at the small amount of info that we have been receiving from E3 regarding AOM. Let's hope Thunder does better than all these game sites.
