Why Andromeda?

 
The original standing stones having some interesting implications, but aren’t unique enough as is for me to continue to want to use them. I’ve found the Andromeda standing stones to be much more roleplay friendly and encourage newer and different styles of play. 
 
Here’s how Enai Siaion describes it: 

  • Andromeda replaces the vanilla Standing Stone effects with two new abilities per stone. 
  • The new abilities are designed to encourage new character builds. 
  • Discover all Standing Stones to also unlock a new power for each stone. 
  • High quality scripting and art.
