    We are Creative (+2 culture per city, double speed Theater and Coliseum) and Financial (+1 commerce if plot has 2 commerce, double speed bank)

    We know Hunting and Mining.

    Discussion is going on here.

    My beliefs right now are to settle where we are and start on a warrior. We can switch to a worker when we reach size two. (this is what I do in just about every game) I want to maximize science reseach. However, what should we research first?

    Well what are our starting techs again? we need to be able to work the rice and if we're going to settle where we are, the pigs. So should go for them 2.

    Completly agree about the warrior to worker thing as well.

    Oops, sorry. We start with Hunting and Mining. We are Creative and Financial. I'm thinking now we should go Agriculture->Wheel->Animal Husbandry->Pottery.

    sounds good. So we're not trying to go for Judaism? do we have any long term plans as to how to get religion? confucianism, Taoism, Christianity or Islam?

    Good catch. I haven't gone over all the rule changes yet. Is there something to replace that, or does financial simply lose a bonus?

    It just loses a bonus, played as England today and think they only got the commerce thing. if we have marble we could maybe consider the oracle Christianity slingshot. Otherwise i think we should focus on one of the later religions.

    probably best. but i think we should change ech direction after that, we should go for bronze working, that way we can see where we can settle our next city and get axes out.

    I agree with bronze and/or archery early on to get some decent defences up and running. Also from what i've seen of the map so far i wouldn't be putting off doing the naval tech too long.
