The Temple of the Gods is a type of Temple, that appears in two scenarios in the Fall of the Trident campaign in Age of Mythology, as well as in one in The New Atlantis.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A massive temple constructed at great expense.

This Temple serves no in-game purpose, as it can neither be constructed, nor it can train myth units. In all scenarios it appears, it serves plot advancement, the quests involving these.

For example, in Mount Olympus, Kastor and his expedition, trapped in the mountain because of the Servant of Kronos' machinations, must ascend the homonymous mountain and destroy a Temple of the Gods to escape.

Eventually, the Atlanteans, most of them transformed into myth units, and Kastor ascend into the mountain, but before they can do anything to the Temple, an Earthquake destroys it, but they manage to escape.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If, in the Scenario Editor, the player tries to place a Temple of the Gods when worshipping a non-Greek deity, the model will remain the same, but the major god statue will change accordingly.
  • Originally, Ensemble intended to have three temples for three corresponding ages. The Temple of the Gods was originally known as the Major Temple (likely a placeholder name) and would train Olympic Age (later renamed Mythic Age) myth units and myth technologies, before it was decided to simply merge the Major Temple, Temple and Shrine into the Temple towards the end of development.
    • The Norse Major Temple was based upon (erroneously) Stonehenge.
