You see, Calabim are vampires, Bannor are crusaders, Malakim are Dune peoples, Ljosalfar are good elves, Svartalfar are bad elves... But Mekara from what i read, is a mishmash of mages, vampires and slaver. Not only that, their promotions unique to them are a giant mess and needlessly complicated. I understand FFH modmods have many good and bad custom civs but Mekara seems to occupy so much space for no reason and not that they are a major player to begin with. In short, i dislike Mekara because how incoherent they are, as if the RiFE team just shoehorned them in like the Hamstalfar. Even the lame Khadi (Amurite traitor from FF) are are much more transparent in term of their goal, their design and their theme. Sorry for the rant.
