Millennia ago, a race of ancient and mysterious beings built a great city on an island in the South Atlantic. After a series of wars rocked their civilization, the island was abandoned and eventually sank beneath the waves.

Now, thousands of years later, its ruins have been discovered on the ocean floor, and the rush is on to possess the secrets of Atlantis! This ancient city will once again be a battleground, as heroes strive to keep powerful, archaic weapons out of the hands of the most nefarious villains in the Multiverse!

Clarifications

Spiff's SotM Rules and Clarifications

  • Pillars of Hercules
    • This card reads "Players may play an additional Card, use an additional Power, and Draw an additional Card on their turns. At the start of every turn, play the top Card of the Villain Deck. At the start of their turn, a player may skip the rest of their turn to destroy this card." Because the two effects are printed on separate lines on the card, the two effects occur sequentially and not simultaneously. That means that the first line ("play the top Card of the Villain Deck") will happen before the first player has a chance to skip their turn to destroy the card.
  • Atlantean Font of Power
    • This card reads "At the end of the Environment turn, play the top Card of the Villain Deck. Play the top Card of each of the Hero Decks in turn order. If the played Card is a Limited Card already in play, discard that Card and play the next Card". The intent of the card is to have players keep attempting to play cards until a valid play occurs, so if the next card you play is also a limited card that's already in play, you'll keep going, repeating as necessary until you uncover a card that isn't limited and already in play.
