Blessing of Ares: 2 Squad Points
Blessing of Athena: 2 Squad Points

Spartan Roster *:
No blessings.
The roster is created with the above rules.

* Spartans,known for their brevity.

Blessing of Hermes *:
(Extra gold)
One or more Skill Points can be exchanged for gold at a ratio of 30k per 1SP. Gold earned this way MUST NOT take team value above 1200K before added skills.

* God of boundaries, roads and travelers, thieves, athletes, shepherds, commerce, speed, cunning, wit, magic, and sleep. Psychopomp and divine messenger.

Blessing of Artemis *:
(Skill stacking)
By sacrificing ONE Skill Point from their Gift of Apollo total, the coach can add a second skill to players on their roster. The number of players with stacked skills is limited as follows:

1 Skill Stack for Zeus/Hera (Tier 1-2),
2 Skill Stacks for Poseidon/Demeter (Tier 3-4)
3 Skill Stacks for Hades/Hestia (Tier 5-6)

A Primary Skill costs 1 SP , a Secondary Skill 2 SP.

Example: A High Elf team (Poseidon/Tier 3) would lose 1 skill point to put 2 skill stacks on the roster, and would now have 7 SP to spend on skills. If the coach gives two of their catchers both the block and dodge skill (both Primary skills costing 1 SP each), this would leave 3 SP to spend on the rest of the team.

* Goddess of nature, childbirth, wildlife, the Moon, the hunt, sudden death, animals, virginity, young women, and archery.
