Is the Raging barbarians. I've seen a lot of people suggest that we build mostly workers and settlers right off the bat, but with the level of barbarian threat, i think the military will have to have a share of early development to. What good is a worker if killed by a barb? The raging barbarian threat will also help us against other civs, as our defenses should be on guard at all time to deal with the raging barbarians. I think it will make us become the dominant military force in the game very early on.
