    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 Taino were an Arawak Indian people of the island of Hispanola in the Caribbean Sea. They also inhabited Puerto Rico and the eastern tip of Cuba. Traditionally they grew cassava and corn (maize), hunted birds and small animals, and fished. They were skillful at working stone and wood. Their society consisted of three tiers — nobles, commoners, and slaves — and they were ruled by hereditary chiefs and subchiefs; religious beliefs centred on a hierarchy of nature spirits and ancestors. Their population was decimated during the Spanish conquest. The Taino population slowly increased during the succeeding centuries.
