I will try to answer on this points. LB GA for music getting free GA. I do not see any problem here. Ability to build culture in newly conqured cities, ability to build Cathedrals and safe trade matherial. What is bad about it? LB Divine right, well, marble based religion+ one more prerequisite for Nationalism. We are a bit behind technologically compare to my previous save. We need to speed it up. I belive self research Nationalism and taking representation from Liberalism is a best plan. It give as republic, and on the way for democracy, for cottage grow and rush buy. Rigth now my main priority is technological defelopment. Music and divine right give as ability to trade for any tech we neeeded in nearest future with out giving AI leg in Liberalism race. Actially our capital and Rome is sure 2 legendary cities. Our second city I did not like as culture candidate, because it got one food resource stolen from it. But a lot of culture wanders were build there and at the end of the day I can steal it from HE pure production city make me decide on it. I never care mach about poluting artist pools. GM in a way is better to GA, as send him oversea for profit to run 100% culture or buy Cathedrals. Yes, this city is near capital, but it is only one that had enogth production and forest near by in order to speed it up. Remember, FP or versales do not only reduce near by cities maintains, it provided second goverment center, reducing civ wide maintance. 6 religions actially is a good demonstration why we did not really needed to run for early religion. So, what if there will be a block? Not taking religion could make Washinton to get it for example, only creating more problems for us. Edit: I corrected advice, as I mean Rome, not washington as one of legendary cities.
