Spirit of Oppression
Spirit of Oppression Class: treasure
Slot: misc
Cost: 2000 Gold
Effect: This item negates all morale bonuses during combat for both you and your opponent.
Walking through the ruins of an ancient walled city, you find the instrument of the city's destruction, the Spirit of Oppression.

Spirit of Oppression is a treasure class artifact equipped in the misc slot. When equipped, it prevents units from getting extra turns from high morale, even Minotaurs' fixed positive morale value. It does not prevent creatures from receiving bad morale and "freezing from panic". The negation of morale happens after all calculations, so if you have e.g. +3 bonus and -1 penalty, your morale will be still evaluated as zero instead of -1.

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

The Spirit of Oppression can be very useful when your army has no morale-boosting skills or items, and is especially useful for Necropolis (undead always have neutral morale) or Conflux armies (5 of the 7 creatures in the Conflux also have fixed neutral morale). Against neutral stacks it will prevent extra morale-based moves which may thwart an otherwise perfect tactical plan (neutral creatures subject to morale will always be +1 otherwise).
