Combat spell cost abruptly increases 150%?
I'm not sure if this is a bug or some other effect I'm not yet aware of, but I just noticed that my spell costs in combat have abruptly increased by 150% between one turn and the next. I was summoning Phantom Warriors at 10 mana, now they're 25? No idea what's happened there.
Casting cost of spells in battle rises with the distance to your capital.
Minor nitpick: that's distance to your nearest city. Or else casting would be slow, indeed, in all the rest of the planes, unless you used "Relocate Tower" regularly. Which would finally give us a reason to use it more than never
