Effect

This Greater Mystery invokes the power of the Phoenician god of bargains, Moloch, to baslance the scales in an arena battle. Kings Minos and Rhadamanthus must be informed of the intended use and target of this curse beforehand.

This mystery empowers a philosopher (who must be affiliated with one of the warbands in the arena) to enter the arena with the announcing priest. The Philosopher is empowered to call CURSE OF MOLOCH against one target warband in the Arena.

At the conclusion of the battle, the side which laid the Curse must take its bead pulls first. For every member of the cursing philosopher's warband who dies from a black or red bead pull during this battle, or is executed, each member of the warband targeted with the curse must each take an additional bead pull (WITHJOUT replacement) and keep the worst result.

This mystery can only be cast at an event under the sign of Taurus
