Mysticism is a technology in Age of Empires that can be found at the Temple once the Bronze Age is reached. Once the technology is researched, the hit points of the Priest doubles.

History[edit | edit source]

Mysticism was a spiritual discipline that sought to achieve contact with gods or other perceived realities through contemplation, trances, or meditation.  It was induced or enhanced by drugs in some cases, and it was part of many ancient beliefs.  For religions seeking to explain the great unknown, the apparent ability to communicate through media unknown to the average person was a powerful selling point.  Because people dream every night, it was a logical step to believe that a few members of the group could somehow make sense of dreams or see through the confusion to communicate with another dimension.
