I'm just about to finish up my first 0.34 game, with Auric Ascended floating around the world like some kind of death-dealing octapus blimp, freezing all other civilizations while my vast army of Illian Champions stay home and make ice cream. I really like the uniqueness of this particular path to victory, but I have a lore-related queston about one of the steps required to getting there -the Draw ritual. What is the Draw, that it causes every other civilization to declare eternal war on your civilization, while simultaneously halving the populations of your cities and damaging your units? Are the Illians drawing some kind of holy/unholy power from the icy world, and the other civs are trying to stop them? Or do the other leaders only at this point catch on to the fact that the Illians are trying to resurrect the Age of Ice, and decide to put a stop to it? Does anyone know?
