    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 Vandals were an East Germanic tribe that entered the late Roman Empire during the 5th century, perhaps best known for their sack of Rome in 455. Although they were not notably more destructive than other invaders of ancient times, Renaissance and Early Modern writers who idealized Rome tended to blame the Vandals for its destruction. This led to the coinage of "vandalism", meaning senseless destruction, particularly the defacing of artworks that were completed with great effort. Fleeing westward from the Huns, they invaded Gaul before settling in Spain (409). Under King Genseric (r. 428 – 477) they migrated to North Africa and became federates of Rome (435). Four years later Genseric threw off Roman overlordship and captured Carthage. The Vandals later annexed Sardinia, Corsica, and Sicily, and their pirate fleets controlled much of the western Mediterranean. When they invaded Italy and captured Rome (455), they plundered the city and its artworks, and their name has remained a synonym for willful desecration and destruction. The Vandals were Arian Christians who persecuted Roman Catholics in Africa. They were conquered when the Byzantines invaded North Africa (533 – 534).
