Seven Temples is a mod for Starcraft 2 that features teams of warring factions in a world of mythology and science fiction. Each faction follows its own gods and heroes and gains their favor and support by claiming new areas with temples. The gods are characterized by specific elements or aspects that define their followers' army compositions, technology and abilities. Once completed, temples summon forces unique to the areas they occupy. For example, capturing a human town will summon a certain type of human fighters while capturing ruins will summon creatures that inhabit that area. As players build more temples they also recruit stronger units and heroes at their capital. Limited mineral deposits and hidden caches are also available to build defensive or production structures and train additional units.
