Auras of Godville
Aura of baiting
Here fishy fishy...
Effect Sudden proficiency in fishing
Colour Dark Blue

The Aura of Baiting is prized throughout Godville for its lovely dark blue colour.

It is often thought to be the colour of a calm lake, and those under the aura's influence feel as though they are meditating next to one. For heroes, this results in an increased drive to go fishing, and improved patience while fishing. This is especially helpful for heroes with arks, as it is one of the principal ways of catching animals to fill their arks.

The only downside of this aura is that, as always, heroes are in favour of annoying their gods above all else and will likely throw in lots of precious artifacts, including activatable ones. Heroes especially love to do this just when a god's finger is hovering over the use button as they know that the god is unlikely to interrupt a hero's fishing expedition in hopes the hero catches something useful, and by the time the hero is done fishing, the god has forgotten about the artifact! Hope that your hero gets a gold brick instead!


  • Fishing more often than usual
  • Acquiring better stuff from fishing
  • Turning regular fishermen who see you green with envy
  • Developing a tendency to post "Out Fishing" signs around town

Historical Notes

On February 26, 2016, the aura that helped a hero find special monsters and the monsters wanted by the Godville Times, previously known as the aura of baiting, was renamed to the aura of trail.

Surprisingly, not a single hero took umbrage with this change. However, a couple that had the aura of baiting at the time of the change, couldn't figure out whether they had the new Aura of Baiting or the old one.
