AT WORLD'S END

Floor: Rocky floors with the occasional patch of grass.
Walls: Crumbling, abyssal holes, as well as a moonlit, cloudless night sky.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. Scholars theorize that this realm is the opposite of Prehistoria, while others speculate this is simply a place at the furthest edge of the world. A remote, lonely cliffside, overlooking a listless sea and revealing a breathtaking view of the moon, this place is home to some highly unusual monsters, and treasure to go with them.

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Clear Crystal: Like the purple crystal from Lister's realm, except clear. These work like mirrorballs.
Telescope: Like the ones from Zonte's realm. Have a look at the moonlit sky through one of these for a realmwide buff. Sometimes, though, you might spot an Amaranth, which either yields another realmwide buff...or a fight with the Amaranth in question, as well as said Amaranth's posse.
Obelisk: Like the ones from Meraxis' realm. Obelisks like these contain written prophecies of those who were here before...and, as such, are at risk of being torn down by selfish monsters. Tell these vandals that preserving history is more important and gain a random token, Pandemonium included.
Gem Piece: Like the spell gem fragments from Zonte's realm. Collecting them all spawns a diamond that provides a realmwide buff.
Small Hill: Like the webbing mounds from Regalis' realm, except made of soil. Digging here can unearth treasure, but one runs the risk of digging up, say, Imlers and Imlings. Send them back underground to score an Unaligned Token.
Sinkhole: A dark hole leading downward. These are miniboss portals that use underground textures, and the monster that leads the pack here is usually a Colossus with an extra Colossus trait.
Stone Rubble: Like the Granite nodes from Gonfurian's realm. These are the regular breakables for this realm.
Even in the last moments of the finale, a Monsterologist's inspiration will shine through!

MT. KELVIN

Floor: Vulcanar's magma floor, recolored to be whitish-grey and lacking in magma.
Walls: Azural's ice walls, refigured to look like they're sloping downward.
Effect: A fierce blizzard.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. A distant mountain on the southern pole of the world, a place said to be so cold, fire freezes solid, second in butt-freezingly low temperatures only to the Frostbite Caverns, where Azural resides. Navigating this blizzard-blanketed hell is no easy task even IF one can stand the temperatures, as the monsters here are just as fierce as the weather, and will handily snuff out your life if you'll let them!

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Pandemonium Token: These just lay about, ready for the taking.
Frozen Campfire: You didn't think we were KIDDING, did ya?! Flames like these can be collected for a nice sum of Crystal and Brimstone...or are in the midst of being crushed by aggressive monsters. Take out the trash and gain even MORE Crystal and Brimstone.
Angel Statue: Like the ones from Surathli's realm. Talk to them all to spawn a special, red-named Nemesis monster who has an extra trait. Defeat this monster to claim a token...Vulcanar, Azural or Unaligned.
Gem Piece: Like the spell gem fragments from Zonte's realm. Collecting them all spawns a diamond that provides a realmwide buff.
Rock Debris: Like the ones from Gonfurian's realm. Clear away this debris for a nice infusion of Granite, or defeat the monsters that were lurking underneath for an Unaligned Token to go with your Granite.
Portal: Like the portals from Surathli's realm. These are miniboss portals that lead to Mt. Kelvin's summit, free of blizzards and showing an amazing view of the full moon against the night sky. The monster that leads the pack here is usually an Elemental or a Jewelavis with an extra Elemental/Jewelavis trait.
Frozen Corpse: This used to be alive...now it's just an unidentifiable chunk of frozen meat. These are the regular breakables for this realm.
Even in the last moments of the finale, a Monsterologist's inspiration will shine through!

THE DRAWING BOARD

Floor: Lines drawn in white ink.
Walls: Walls of blue, like a blueprint, dotted with white ink.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. Another realm that doesn't quite seem finished yet, save that the flavor this realm goes for is 'drawn blueprints'. One gets the sense of where everything's supposed to go, and the basics for interaction are there, but it hasn't been given a coat of paint yet, so to speak. This unusual realm does bear treasures for the bold, and for those strong enough to fight the monsters here.

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Drawn Tree: A simple, dawn tree with full foliage. For some weird reason, large numbers of Bombardiers like to hide in the branches of trees like this, and drop down when said tree is inspected. Defeat them and claim a random token, Pandemonium Token included.
Drawn Pond: A simple, drawn body of water. Go fishing here for things like treasure chests, random tokens...Pandemonium Token included...or a whole host of angry Crabsters.
Scribble: Just a random, scribbled thing. Jumbled clusters of pure imagination, untangle them to fight a team of monsters that have a high chance of being Godshop monsters. Beat them back into the ether to claim a random token...Pandemonium Token included.
Stick Figures: The local NPCs. Come in male and female flavors. These fine folk are being harassed, however, by very rude monsters, so do them a favor and beat the monsters into the ground. They'll reward you with a random token...Pandemonium Token included...for your effort.
Window Portal: A portal that looks like an open window with a 'swirling' portal inside. These are miniboss portals, and they're usually led by traitless Avatar monsters, like the ones accompanying the Ruler of Siralim.
Crumpled Paper: White sheets of paper, crumpled up. These are the regular breakables for this realm.
Even in the last moments of the finale, a Monsterologist's inspiration will shine through!

THE ARMAMENT SPHERES

Floor: The tiled floor from the brazier area.
Walls: A slightly fuzzy, pastel-pink background with floating glass bubbles.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. Another location that's less a physical place and more a state of mind, the Armament Spheres are a state any smith can slip into when they're high on inspiration and forging artifacts fit for legendary heroes. As such, this realm is rife with things detailing artifacts and their creation, but at the same time, threats abound, as fantasies of the monsters to be slain by said artifacts are also rife here, and they're quite physical!

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Pandemonium Token: These just lay about, ready for the taking.
Sword Piece: Like the swords from Surathli's realm, and do the same thing.
Shield Piece: Like the shields from Tartarith's realm, and do the same thing.
Gem Piece: Like the spell gem fragments from Zonte's realm, and do the same thing.
Suit of Armor: Like the ones from Gonfurian's realm. Magnificent suits of armor that inspire greatness when beheld, these spread either a realmwide buff or a realmwide debuff. Sometimes, though, one may find monsters trying to deface them, whereupon smiting these cowards will award either two realmwide buffs, two realmwide debuffs or one of both in recognition of your heroism.
Smith: A blacksmith NPC...who happens to be a Smith monster. A Hammer Lord, to be specific. He doesn't forge anything, but when he shows up, he'll gladly take junk artifacts and artifact materials and trade them for rune powder, gem dust and all kinds of tokens, Pandemonium included.
Anvil: An anvil with a sword on it. These are the regular breakables for this realm.
Even in the last moments of the finale, a Monsterologist's inspiration will shine through!

FIESTA DE LOS CALAVERAS

Floor: Yseros' dandy floor, recolored to a more nighttime feel.
Walls: Nighttime houses lit up with bright, festive lights.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. A small, faraway town, generally caught in the middle of a long celebration to honor Erebyss, the Goddess of Darkness. The mood is bright, the parties are on and even the undead like it here...especially the Gashadokuros, who always cause a scene when they show up! Of course, parties can get rowdy sometimes, and Erebyss may just smile upon you for ensuring nothing bad happens...

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Chef: Simple chefs, out to feed the partiers for some compensation. He provides a selection of meals to choose from for a fee. Pay the man, then eat up to gain a special bonus that spans this realm AND the next.
Cactus: Small, round cactuses with flowers on them. These flowers are sought-after by partygoing ladies, human and undead alike, so gather them and give them those flowers for a random god token.
Townsfolk: Regular NPCs in ponchos and sombreros. These people love to party, so gather up a bunch of them to REALLY kick things off. Gathering them all awards an Unaligned or Erebyss token.
Undead: Monster NPCs. usually Skeletons or Gashadokuros, but can also be Wights, Forsaken, Wendigos, Thaumaturges or Liches. These are usually besieged by angry, hostile monsters that attend the party to cause trouble. Save the living dead revellers to gain treasure chests.
Open Door: Open doors in some of the houses. These are miniboss portals, and are usually led by Chupacabras with an extra trait.
PiƱata: Paper-mache constructs shaped like Fiends. These are the regular breakables for this realm, as befits a party.

THE HALLOWED PLAZA

Floor: Zonte's checkerboard floors, done up in white and dark grey.
Walls: Castle Nex's arched walls.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. This is a place of worship, ostensibly for Surathli, but other gods are revered here too...Erebyss, Cordemis, Lister, Aeolian...peaceful gods, usually. However, as peaceful as this place is, there have been incessant rumors of monster activity, as well as the worrying presence of Martyrs. Fortunately, the higher-ups don't mind explorers.

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Knight: Like the ones from Gonfurian's realm, They're local guards bored with the peace, who appreciate the chance to see how their teams stack up to those of visitors. Oblige them and gain a random god token as thanks for a good time.
Green Star: Like the ones from Surathli's realm, except green. Stars of an unusual hue that fell from the sky. It's considered a good deed to return them to space, and a better deed to stamp out the monsters trying to claim them. Do this to get rewarded with an Unaligned token.
Planted Sword: Like the ones from Surathli's realm. These are miniboss portals, and the teams they lead to are usually led by Martyrs or Demagogues.
Townsfolk: Simple townsfolk NPCs. These are people of faith, come to observe the plaza. It's close to time for a sermon, though, so speak to them all to gether them, then fight off a group of Thralls, Demagogues and Martyrs to let the speaker speak, and receive a NICE boost in resources for your trouble.
Angel Statue: Like the ones from Surathli's realm. These stone angels are here to protect the faithful, and respond to inspection by testing your strength with a team of Seraphs. Triumph, and be rewarded with a treasure chest and the statue's approval of your ability.
Stone Goblet: Like the ones from Erebyss' realm. These are the regular breakables for this realm.

THE MOONLIT GARDEN

Floor: Zonte's checkerboard floors, colored grey and dark grey.
Walls: Aeolian's foliage, colored stark white.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. The Moonlit Garden is a place suffused with magic, where the atmosphere seems heady and the surroundings truly mystical and enchanting. This garden's purity is outright sacrosanct, but lately, there have been invading monsters out to despoil this place. Clearing them out ought to yield some great rewards...

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
White Rose: Like the ones from Erebyss' realm, except stark white. Majestic roses like these reward those who stop to take in their scent...if they can survive an attack from the groups of pumped-up Vileblooms who guard these roses jealously.
Statuary: Decorative stonework, like the ones from Friden's realm. Statues like this add to the garden's beauty, which is probably why rude monsters are trying to tear them down. Reduce these vandals to gruel and be rewarded with a treasure chest.
White Tree: Like the solitary trees in Aeolian's realm, except with stark white foliage and greyish-brown bark. Solitary trees like this often draw in the worst of the worst, and inspecting one reveals three groups of monsters marked as 'Impure'. Slay them all and receive a random god token as your karmic reward.
Pilwiz: Pilwiz NPCs, here to study the secrets of the garden's foliage, and especially its white roses. There's a few of them scattered about, so talk to them to unite them, and then take a moment to stomp a gaggle of onrushing monsters into slush while the Pilwiz work. They'll reward you with an Unaligned Token afterward.
Tiny Temple: Like the ones from Meraxis' realm, except the glow is red. These are miniboss portals, and the monsters leading them are usually Reapers, Wendigos or Kamaitachi with an extra trait.
Grey Grass: Like the tall grass from Torun's realm. These are the regular breakables for this realm.

THE EXTRAPLANAR PATH

Floor: The clear floors from Siralim 2's brazier area, in various colors.
Walls: Clear walls in various colors.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. The Extraplanar Path is not like most realms...instead of a physical place, it seems to be like the Abyss and the Void Between Realms: an anomaly. Crystalline, chromatic roads that lead nowhere in particular, very close to the edge of existance and traversable mostly because of Teleport Shrines. Things don't really work like they should here, but the view is amazing and the treasures vast...

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Magi: NPCs. Unfortunates who ended up here randomly. Guide them all to the warp shrine so they can leave, and receive a karmic reward: a random god token.
Glass Orb: Like the breakables from Vulcanar's realm, except white. These orbs contain the essence of powerful Nemesis monsters. Break the orb and beat the monsters to get a treasure chest for each orb.
Clear Crystals: Like the ones from Vulcanar's realm, but clear. These are teleporters, but you can be attacked in transit once per crystal, usually by teams of Ragulites and Cerebrants. Defeat all comers for an Unaligned Token.
Portal: Like the Itherian Boss portals, but white. These are miniboss portals, and the teams beyond are usually led by Watchers or Ragulites with an extra trait.
Pandemonium Token: Kind of just laying around here.
Iron Crate: Like the ones from Vertraag's realm. These are the regular breakables for this realm.

THE EVIL STORYBOOK

Floor: Discarded pages...some blank, some scribbled on.
Walls: Large stacks of hardcover tomes.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. On the surface, it seems as if this place is a large library, but that isn't true: this realm is, instead, inscribed on the pages of a cursed tome, made escapable through the presence of a Warp Shrine! As expected, there has been an absolute flood of Grimoires coming in, and where they go, esoteric knowledge follows...!

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Loose Books: Like the ones from Zonte's realm. Either on the floor or on tables, these books of lore are jealously guarded by groups of Grimoires...Eldritch Grimoires included! Smack them down and claim the intellectual riches...along with the PHYSICAL ones from the treasure chests that doing this spawns.
Bookcase: Also like the ones from Zonte's realm. These give Breeding Recipes/Knowledge Pages...if you can defeat the Grimoire teams nesting on their shelves.
Red Tome: Accursed history books, telling of horrid events of the past. They're so vivid, they spawn a few groups of monsters labeled 'Antagonist'. Defeat all three of them for an Unaligned Token. Then inspect the Red Tome again, as if it were a treasure chest, for it provides loot in return for the service you just provided it.
Alchemy Table: Like the ones from Zonte's realm, and work roughly the same way. Red + Pink yields a random token, though, Pandemonium Tokens included.
Mage: Researching magi who lost track of themselves while performing their research, and are being harassed by monsters. Beat down those bullies and save the magi. Save them all and gain a random god token.
Glowing Tome: Floating, glowy books. These are the regular breakables for this realm.
Even in the last moments of the finale, a Monsterologist's inspiration will shine through!

PREHISTORIA

Floor: Friden's sand floor, recolored to look more dirt-like.
Walls: Torun's jungle foliage.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. This realm is another peek into the past, but this time for Rodia as a whole, a look back into the age when dinosaurs existed and roamed free. A primal age filled with danger, where giant monsters all but ruled the world. Understandably, magi, monsters and explorers have piled in to get a piece of the pie, as, where danger exists, so too does opportunity...!

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Imp Huts: Like the ones from Torun's and Lister's realms. They want jungle fruit, so bring them the fruits they want. Get them all and receive a VERY nice bit of loot.
Mushrooms: Also like the ones from Torun's realm, except these work more like the fruits did. Getting a certain combination of shrooms causes their spores to manifest special effects, ranging from the helpful to the somewhat hindering.
Monster Footprint: A big footprint in the dirt floor. Inspect it to attract the attention of the Carnosaur team that left it. Kick their scaly butts for an Unaligned Token.
Angry Totem: Like the ones from Torun's realm. These are miniboss portals, and the teams beyond are usually led by, what else, Carnosaurs.
Campfire: Simple campfires. Light them to draw out a team of Imps, which you can then fight. Defeat them all and claim a Token...Friden, Torun or Unaligned.
Rock Pile: Like the ones from Yseros' realm. These are the regular breakables for this realm.

THE STREETS OF SIRALIM

Floor: Tartarith's dark brick paths.
Walls: Rows of burning or ruined houses.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. And as well-deserved as the ruler's death was, for trying to enslave the gods and become a tyrant, the picture painted on the streets of their kingdom does not match. Their realm is in disarray, and innocent people scramble for their lives in the face of extraordinarily-aggressive monster attacks. Treasure's to be had, though, and lives are to be saved!

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Knight: Like the ones from Gonfurian's realm, except they use Siralim 2-based sprites. Overzealous defenders of the people trying to make a proud stand so others can survive. Defeat their teams to show them how outmatched they are and be rewarded with a boost in two random resources while saving a life otherwise wasted.
Townsfolk: NPCs who use Siralim 2-esque sprites. Regular, innocent people under attack from monsters, usually bands led by Carvers, Obakenin or Carnages with an extra trait. Kick these predatory scum to the curb. Save all the people this way to get rewarded with a random god token.
Open Door: Open doors in some buildings. These are miniboss portals, and the teams they lead to are usually led by Phase Warriors.
Burning Debris: Junk blocking the path for people to escape through. Clearing away the debris does usually reveal a group of Efreets and/or Prometheans, though, so quench their fire and ensure they can't harm anyone. Doing so rewards you with a Pandemonium Token, too.
Ruler Statue: A monument to the now-former Ruler of Siralim's arrogance. Commit a bit of Heroic Vandalism by tearing it down to gain an Unaligned Token. Sometimes, a team of Thralls may try and prevent you from committing said Heroic Vandalism, so send THEM packing too for a second Unaligned Token.
Rubble: Like the ones from Friden's realm. These are the regular breakables for this realm.

THE VOID BETWEEN REALMS

Floor: Black, crystalline roads.
Walls: Surathli's clouds, except a menacing, dark purple.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. This place, essentially, is the empty space linking the Unaligned Realms together, but it functions in much the same way as a proper Realm in and of itself. The rules of reality do not apply here the same way it does in other realms, and danger lurks around every corner. Aside from some, the creatures faced here are not true creatures either, but closer to physical memories of creatures found in other realms.

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Black Floating Crystal: Like the ones from Vulcanar's realm. These are miniboss portals, and the enemy groups therein are generally led by buffed-up Horrors or Ragulites.
Black Crystal Pillar: Like obelisks. There's three in each realm. Inspect them to initiate a battle against monster teams whose leader has an extra trait. Win all three and get an Unaligned Token.
Black Crystal Cluster: Nodes. Mine them for a boost in two random resources, or beat up the monsters already mining them for a boost to THREE random resources..
Black Crystal Altar: Kind of like the Altar of Blood, except black crystal. Interacting with it causes three enemy groups to spawn around the map, marked as 'Sacrifice'. Kick their butts and bring their meat back to the altar to gain a random god token, one for each piece of meat.
Lost Mage: A mage NPC. He's a salesman, but if you want to peruse his wares, usually nicer then what common salespeople carry, you'll have to clear away the rowdy monsters accosting him first.
Black Crystal Cube: As it says on the tin. These are the regular breakables for this realm.

REALM 404

Floor: Blue, circuit board-pattern floors.
Walls: A green 'square grid' pattern over a black background.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. This is one of the odder realms to be discovered...chiefly because it doesn't seem FINISHED yet. Sure, all the MECHANICS are there, but everything just feels and looks off and mechanical, as if whatever god's supposed to preside over this place never got around to putting on the finishing touches! Sometimes, people and monsters just...end up here, and, as such, traversing this place has its dangers to keep in mind.

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Townsfolk: Simple townsfolk NPCs. These poor people got lost here, so talk to them to send them to the warp shrine. The last one, though, is being harassed by monsters, so smash those mobs into slush for an Unaligned Token as a bonus for saving everyone.
Pandemonium Token: Kind of just laying around, up for grabs.
Red Tile: Just a red tile. These are miniboss portals, and the teams they lead to are usually led by AIs or Sentinels.
Undefined Object: An object whose shape is...difficult to ascertain. Trying to inspect it yields a surprising Nemesis battle, with the lead monster having an extra Trait, and winning that battle yields a treasure chest.
Red Mirror Ball: Like Surathli's mirror balls, except red. Interacting with this ball spawns three mob packs labeled as 'Target'. Defeat all of them and interact with the mirror ball again to receive a random god token for your hard work.
Green Box: Simple, green squares. These are the regular breakables for this realm.

BATTLEFORT

Floor: Zonte's tiled floors, either red or blue depending on which half of Battlefort they're on.
Walls: Gonfurian's grey brick walls.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. Though, being fair, 'newly-discovered' is a misnomer when it comes to Battlefort, a well-known site where competing groups of knights takes sides, Red or Blue, and duke it out to complete objectives to see which is truly superior. However, recently, the teams have started getting harassed by monsters who get in the way. Maybe you can do something about that...?

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Knight: Like the ones from Gonfurian's realm, and they use Siralim 2-esque Knight sprites. Overzealous competitors on both teams who are eager to test their teams against a powerful foe. Send these jokers packing, and, when all of them are bested, you receive an Unaligned Token, one per team.
Carver: NPC Carvers. Troublemakers out to attack the competing knights. Kick them to the curb, where they belong, and get a treasure box for each Carver beaten.
Portal: Like Itherian Boss portals, except yellow. These are miniboss portals, and the teams they lead to are usually led by Thralls or Ogres.
Debris: Simple debris from things around the playing field that has been damaged. Clean it up for a bunch of resources, or apprehend the vandals committing the act, usually teams of Obakenin, for considerably more resources.
Team Captain: The leaders of each team, using red or blue versions of Ilberd's sprite. These braves are being attacked by hostile monsters out to disrupt the game. Clear out the riff-raff for a Pandemonium Token and a random God token. Works once per team leader.
Metal Crate: Like the ones from Vertraag's realm. These are the regular breakables for this realm.

Hey, remember that old bug that had huge map-sprites showing up? Yeah, that inspired this realm.

THE WORLD OF DREAMS

Floor: The tiles from the summoning brazier area.
Walls: A background of dark colors, upon which large, translucent monster and NPC map sprites occasionally appear.
Presiding Deity: None!

One of the newly-discovered Unaligned Realms, revealed when the Ruler of Siralim's power was scattered upon their death. The World of Dreams is, as imagined, less a physical location and more a state of mind, the collective consciousness of all those who slumber and dream of better times. As imagined, there's kind of a surreal quality to this place, with many things in place that can't be found elsewhere, although there do exist plenty of powerful monsters...possibly projections of the dreams of those who wish for great battles.

NOTABLE REALM OBJECTS
Stone Eggs: Vaguely like the imp huts, but not exactly. These stone eggs contain wishes made by people who dream, and they correspond to an equal number of nests around the area. Deliver each egg to a nest, thus making the wishes come true, and be rewarded with a treasure box at the first nest you used.
Diamond: Like the ones from Azural's realm. These are teleporters...except here, you may be attacked by monsters in transit, generally by parties led by Constructs, Cerebrants or Tapirs. One fight can happen per diamond. Clear them all for some nice treasure and an Unaligned Token.
Spheres: The same thing as the ones from Vertraag's realm.
Monolith: Big slabs of black stone. Like, stereotypically so. Monoliths like this generally come in pairs, and interacting with one spawns three 'Invader' monsters at the other. Defeat all the Invaders and be rewarded with two special battles, one per monolith, against teams full of Godshop monsters. Beat them for a random Token each.
Wormhole: Like the rifts from Vertraag's realm, but more purpley. This is a miniboss portal, and the monsters that it leads to tend to be traitless Avatars, like the ones accompanying the final boss.
Pink Cloud: Like the clouds in Surathli's realm. These are the regular breakables for this realm.

Even in the last moments of the finale, a Monsterologist's inspiration will shine through!
