1000BC and Asoka out of the blue gifts me Alphabet. Alpha is a monopoly tech (well until he gave it to me that is)... Spoiler : This is the first time in a meaningful game (i.e. not dead last in tech, axe vs. mace kinda thing) that I've ever been gifted a tech of more than trivial beakers (and never a monopoly tech). Sheesh, most of the time Aesthetics for Alpha still requires ~100 beakers or so. I am boxed in sure... Spoiler : but it is not like I can't elepult or something (freebie Alpha...thanks for quicker phants ) What gives? Is Asoka typically this giving? Maybe something to do with his peaceweight?
