Description: This spell imbues a holy symbol with the power to incite a mindless bloodlust on the part of those that see it.

Spell Effect: This spell can be cast only when a realm is engaged in warfare with another land. It is cast onto a symbol that is carried into battle by the realm’s soldiers (it must be assigned to a specific unit and is destroyed when that unit is).

    As long as the symbol is held aloft every unit in the battle gains +1 to attack and can not retreat from battle or surrender. As soon as the symbol makes its appearance the enemy rushes into battle and even the reserves of the armies cannot avoid getting engaged in the fighting. No unit can be routed or fall back from battle, instead treat those results as a hit instead. The fighting will continue unabated until the symbol is destroyed or all the soldiers on one side are killed.

Character Equivalent: Berserker fury
