[BtS] Civ of the Week: Mississippi 2016-10-05

[BtS] Civ of the Week: Mississippi

  1. cybrxkhan
    An important civ that I made based on the urgings of the dream. Enjoy, as always.

    THIS WEEKS' CIV:
    MISSISSIPPI





    The 3 Guarantees of Civ of the Week

    Civ of the Week guarantees three things that other custom civs usually don't have:

    - Unique Diplomacy Music for the leaders
    - Unique personalities for new leaders (i.e. leader personality isn't an exact copy of an old one!)
    - Unique civilization (civs are almost always somewhat obscure but interesting cultures that have never been presented as civs before!)



    What is Civ of the Week?


    Spoiler :
    Civ of the Week is a “project” aiming at bringing you a new, fresh, exotic, and most of all, random, civ every 1-2 weeks, from all corners of the globe, from the Vietnamese to the Mittanni to the Iraqis. Each civilization features full civilopedia text entires, 1-2 leaders with unique game and diplomatic attitudes (they're not simply a copy of another leader!), a UU, a UB, unique diplomacy music, and full graphics.

    The purpose of Civ of the Week, then, is three-fold:

    1. To bring you random civs that would probably not have been chosen as civilizations first of all, and to provide a new, more exotic, more interesting experience in choosing civilizations.

    2. To promote more knowledge of lesser-known peoples, cultures, and histories.


    3. Make more civs for the totally awesome Civ Gold mod.


    Otherwise, then, enjoy!

    [FONT=&quot]Description: [/FONT]The Mississippian culture was a mound-building Native American culture that flourished in what is now the Midwestern, Eastern, and Southeastern United States from approximately 800 CE to 1500 CE, varying regionally. Mississippian history is usually divided into three or more periods. The Early Mississippi period was directly descendend from the Late Woodland culture that existed until c. 1000 CE. During this time, different groups abandoned tribal lifeways for increasing complexity, sedentism, centralization, and agriculture. The Early Mississippian period was from c. 1000 to 1200 C.E. Production of surplus corn and attractions of the regional chiefdoms led to rapid population concentrations in major centers. The Middle Mississippian period is often considered the high point of the Mississippian era. The expansion of the great metropolis and ceremonial complex at Cahokia, the formation of other complex chiefdoms, and the spread and development of SECC art and symbolism are characteristic changes of this period. The Mississippian traits listed above came to be widespread throughout the region. In most places, this period is recognized as occurring c. 1200–1400 C.E. The Late Mississippian period, usually considered from c. 1400 to European contact, is characterized by increasing warfare, political turmoil, and population movement. The population of Cahokia dispersed early in this period (1350–1400), perhaps migrating to other rising political centers. More defensive structures are often seen at sites, and sometimes a decline in mound-building and ceremonialism. Although some areas continued an essentially Middle Mississippian culture until the first significant contact with Europeans, the population of most areas had dispersed or were experiencing severe social stress by 1500. Along with the contemporary Anasazi, these cultural collapses coincide with the global climate change of the Little Ice Age. Scholars have theorized that drought and collapse of maize agriculture, together with possible deforestation and overhunting by the concentrated populations, forced them to move away. Although the Mississippian culture was heavily disrupted before a complete understanding of the political landscape was written down, many Mississippian political bodies were documented and others have been discovered by research.
