Against the Storm: Fishman Soothsayer Brings Something Valuable to Players

Fishman Soothsayer Update Eremite Games

A new major patch is now available for the dark fantasy city-builder Against the Storm. The Fishman Soothsayer update introduced a new Glade Event where players can interact with the titular soothsayer.

The mysterious soothsayer offers players the unique Airbender perk as a reward. This new perk increases the Hostility Threshold for all negative Forest Mysteries.

To understand how Airbender works, players must learn about a couple of the game's mechanics. Hostility in Against the Storm increases the difficulty multiplier of the game. The Hostility Level rises when players do certain things, such as increasing the number of villagers, opening glades, and taking specific Cornerstones, among others. Conversely, the hostility level is reduced when there's a decrease in villagers, adding an extra Hearth, etc.

Forest Mysteries, on the other hand, are modifiers that influence a variety of things. Negative Forest Mysteries, in particular, are only active during storms. One example of a negative forest mystery is Looming Darkness, which reduces global resolve by four per hostility level.

Anyway, Airbender just makes it so that players are given enough time to deal with negative forest mysteries before they become active. For instance, Looming Darkness now activates at Hostility level one instead of zero.

To get this perk, players must look for the Fishman Soothsayer first at the Forbidden Glades. Interacting with the wandering fortune teller presents them with two options: Foretell or Capture. Choose the second option and defeat the Fishman Soothsayer.
