I delayed the encampments until the 30% policy ... tho I built one when I noticed it was relatively cheap. How does the discounting work? I thought it was just based on having fewer of that type than the average of other civs. But there’s something about which policies are completed, too? Good point on the extra culture from works of art. I could’ve used that. I did get a couple early great writers, surely the first one if not also the second, but I didn’t have anywhere to put the art til I captured Xian. Then I popped the second right around then and. Placed it when I captured the Scythian cap. So much for early gain. I had an artist that I held til the Scythian cap, too, and a GReat musician who of course was useless.
