Default Did you know that? (Dominions trivia)

I couldn't find a topic on that, but there must be one!

One to gather all that small things. Strange, hidden or way too obvious to know. The ones that you find by accident in some small thread on or irc.

So write here them all. I guess small things from manual that get missed should be included too. Just small things though.

Examples:
- Elixir of Life works on Lifeless beings
- mages with only random picks can be built without a lab
- trampling does not give you gems from Sickle Whose Crop is Pain [someone could acutally test what can give them]
- Domes stack
- immobile units cannot use Teleport etc

I am sure that someone has much better examples

But don't get penalties from them! Which made them primary candidates for Fever Fetish in Dominions 2. However, this was fixed so now undead with FF produce much less gems.

Changing a mod will retroactively alter ongoing games to match the new settings since it is only an overlay on the game engine, not an actual alteration of the engine.

The various movement bugs.

If you make a Jotun Herse, Demonbred, Lizard King or Dwarf smith into a prophet, they get a special graphic.

Click a unit, then click 'S', and you will see all your starving units.

Great for pulling out hungry, low morale guys and sending them to get fed.

* Mindless beings can receive the feebleminded affliction.
?(wouldn't that be an upgrade)?

* You cannot find blood sites within water provinces, supposedly because the water washes away the blood... ... yet you can find fire sites.
water and fire seem more likely to cancel each other than water and blood

* The game has a commander and unit limitation which are easily encountered on maps of 1000 or more provinces.

Oracle can. I think that only totally immobile units like Sphinx cannot.

Right, teleport works, Gateway doesn't. Have to check Astral Travel. Giving Flying items to immobiles gives them mapmove 1 but they still cannot move. Treelords on flying carpets would look nice though.
