    Mammon's Vault Scenario:

    - Replace all leader pictures with normal face pictures
    - No settlers setting
    - No cities setting
    - Every "nation" has a champion unit (which represents the person's soul)
    - Goal is to get (e.g.) 10 gold coins
    - Each unit starts with 1 gold coin
    - Everyone starts off at war with eachother but peace treaties can be made
    - Create 20 new promotions (Gold1, Gold2, ..., Gold20) and use sheut stone icon for all of them. When you get more or less gold you replace the old promotion with a different one
    - Ways to get gold coins are:
    # kill a unit and take their gold
    # demand gold from a unit in return for peace treaty
    #


    Potential Problems and Possible Solutions:
    - a stalemate may occur where ppl don't want to attack anyone else
    # random damage/buffs to units throughout the game
    # (better way) everyone starts with some minor promotions to represent their careers in life - fireball (and -1 STR), floating eye, sentry 1, movement 1, etc
    - addition/subtraction of 2/3/etc gold using promotions
    # when changing gold promotions use IF...THEN style code to give a numerical value for each gold promotion; e.g. If a unit has 5 gold and is getting another 3 gold you could code something like this:
    IF unit has Gold5 THEN UnitsGold = 5
    UnitsGold = UnitsGold + 3
    IF UnitsGold = 1 THEN set.has.promotion Gold1
    ....
    IF UnitsGold = 8 THEN set.has.promotion Gold8

    The lore says that people try to trick other people into giving them the special gold coin of Mammon but I can't imagine how you could trick someone into that when everyone is trying to collect them from everyone else! Let alone how that could be (easily) coded into a scenario. :/
