    I don't dare to guess. It also could be a generic Pasha/Bey, Persia could get a Satrap, or it could be something completely different. It would be an interesting choice though.

    I'd say it's a possibility. The Inca with generic apu would be another possibility. The thing is pretty much all civilizations had governors, and most leaders had special relationships with certain administrators. Elizabeth I had Sir Francis Walsingham, her "spymaster"; Louis XIV had Cardinal Mazarin; Djoser had Imhotep; etc. But if I were giving one civ a unique governor or a governor-related bonus, I would have chosen Persia and her satrapies...

    I'd rate them as high. I'm personally of the belief that the first leak was not a complete hoax job, but rather a mix of work for the current expansion and (I know there's no strong reason to expect it - I don't personally even want it) a third expansion.

    I stand ready, though, to change my belief in the face of evolving facts. :)

    I agree. However I've already mentioned that the Ottomans are a good candidate for a Grand Vizier.

    How would a unique governor even work? Just an extra slot with all those abilities?

    That’s give whomever a wealth of abilities.

    Right, thanks. :D

    No such thing as "too many waifus."

    That's mainly what I use Victor for; entering a newly taken city to boost its Loyalty. I don't think he's ever happened to be in a city that was attacked by the enemy in any of my games.

    For Civ 6, though, all governors are named, so it makes no sense to have a "Grand Vizier" or "Satrap" unique governor, sitting aside Liang or Magnus.

    Extra yields to un-chopped terrain maybe?
    Maybe gold on those tiles with un-removed features since gold is what she specializes in. I'd prefer production however.

    Well, then who was Suleiman's best Grand Vizier?

    I always felt moksha should allow users to buy districts with faith like Reyna does with gold. Then he would at least be somewhat worthwhile.

    Yeah, I have to think that a unique governor just replaces an existing one. An extra slot would be really powerful (and would force them to rework the governors UI, which it appears they haven't done).

    Why not? They all have allegorical names anyway.

    The US could also have a unique Florida governor. He would be corrupt and worse than the generic one, though.

    In that case I nominate Kronk for the Inca.

    We can have Kuzco and Yzma for alternate leaders. :p

    The unique governor will undoubtedly follow the approach taken with the generic governors in art style.

    Where I would expect it to differ is:

    (a) to use a historical name for the governor (there's only one, so no need to use a title, and s/he is unique to that civ so no need to be generic),

    (b) to have a smaller tree of benefits, possibly with no choices at each level, as the use of the unique governor is itself optional.

    It's possible this is a trial run as an experiment to assess the feasibility of giving every civ a unique governor in Civ 7.
