Is that from looking at the code? I've razed Holy Cities before without any penalties. I remember it was a problem if it was the AIs state religion, not otherwise. vicawoo: Yes, it's "pick religion". And I also agree with patagonia's advice. Aside from building markets for gold and merchant slots currency will also let you simply build gold. It may prove useful if you manage to take a lot of Monty's cities really fast. Great round and keep up the good work!
