The Temple of Vishanti Revealed for MARVEL Realm of Champions

MARVEL Realm of Champions

Kabam has revealed more information about one of MARVEL Realm of Champions’ featured Houses – the Temple of Vishanti.

CAPITAL: Kamar-Taj
BARON TITLE: The Ancient One
NUMBER OF ACCESSIBLE TIMELINES: 14,000,606

BRIEF HISTORY

The Isles of Agamotto were once simply The Island of Agamotto. Little is known of the time before The Great Cleft that cracked the single island into multiple fractured realities, but in its wake, the mystics of The Temple of Vishanti began their scholarly federation. Their primary focus was and remains the Mystic Caldera within which lies a dangerous and powerful portal to other dimensions, some even too dangerous for The Ancient One to study for too long. 

Though the Caldera is a source of knowledge for The Temple of Vishanti, it is also a source of danger. During The Maestro’s Conquest the Temple remained neutral, much to the ire of other Houses and even members of the Temple, many of whom resisted his rule. Though outwardly this seemed to many as an act of pacifistic cowardice, only the Sorcerers Supreme know the real reason: The Ancient One could not fight a war on two fronts. Maestros’ destabilization of the realities of Battleworld dislodged many of the mystic safeguards in place throughout the Isles of Agamotto, causing The Dark Dimension’s horological stabilizations to falter.

Now that The Maestro is dead and the safeguards restored, the scholars of The Temple have returned to their study of the Caldera and the realities across the Isles. From their capital in Kamar-Taj at the threshold of the swirling dimensional vortex, to their archive of arcane curios in the Sanctum Sanctorum, the Sorcerers Supreme are poised to be powerful players in the coming days if only they can turn their eyes towards the real dangers in front of them, as opposed to those that lie behind a mystic veil.

Patriot Garrison details revealed for MARVEL Realm of Champions

Today, Kabam revealed new details on one of MARVEL Realm of Champions’ Houses, the Patriot Garrison.

CAPTIAL: Triskelion
BARON TITLE: President
HIGHEST ELEVATION: 5,725 feet

BRIEF HISTORY

This land is made of shattered pieces from an alternate world where it was Howard Starknot Dr. Erskine, who was shot while Steve Rogers first became the hero known as Captain America. The growing S.S.R. organization’s technological development was cut short with the loss of Stark, so their focus turned from firepower to manpower thanks to the work of Dr. Erskine’s super soldier serum. Erskine becoming key in deciding who would gain access to his serum, including many members of a group known as “The Howling Commandos”.

When their reality was torn asunder to be part of the Battleworld, the collected forces of the Garrison immediately looked to unseat the mad dictator Maestro. It was Steve Rogers who once again lead a charge to enforce the will of democracy on this seemingly lawless land. Clad in armor which was created from the few remaining Stark plans, he now called himself the Civil Warrior. Sadly, their rebellion managed only to enrage the green goliath. Maestro struck down the Civil Warrior, scattered the rebelling forces, and used his might to literally freeze the Garrison in time while he considered a more suitable punishment.

With the mysterious death of the Maestro the Garrison marches once again, lead by serum-enhanced President. The Patriot Garrison itself is in a strategic position amongst some of the most powerful houses in Battleworld. The populace hope to be a force for justice, but there are dark corners of the Garrison who perhaps thirst for power and expansion of their own. Nevertheless, the chaotic Battleworld is in need of their moral strength now more than ever, particularly as a counterpoint to the expanding House of Iron.
