Have a question regarding the spawning pool of a Great Engineer. The wiki says the following: There are many different ways to obtain "free" Great Engineers. Purchasing a Great Engineer with Faith does not push back the spawning pool, whereas all the following do: Earning a free GP of your choice (with the Mayan Long Count, Liberty finisher, Leaning Tower of Pisa, etc.). Note that this also pushes back the Great Scientist and Great Merchant pools. I usually play Venice, in my game my puppet state automatically spawns a Great Engineer which pushed back my GP (great people) count i.e spawning a Great Merchant went from 100-200 which made Venice unplayable in this save. I have never had a puppet city state spawn a Great Engineer automatically to cause this issue, I am wondering why the Great Engineer is in the spawning pool (+3 from somewhere)? The only thing I can think of is another city spread the Eastern Orthodoxy religion to this puppet city Could this be the issue?
