    Maybe the Kris could generate faith when it gets killed... Seems like that's a bit of a stretch though

    The achievement suggests the Enemy Blade promotion will be a poor one.

    Frankly, I don't know. I can think of few a faith related aspect for an UU like a missionary/inquisitor hybrid, great prophet attached unit, increased strength for each different religion in your civ, but of course they don't fit the kris.

    I just feel that the current random promotion doesn't really capture the mystical blade aspect. It's like they just slap a mechanic from a scenario and call it a day. "Mystical" should be closely related to faith imo.

    When stationed in a city, it should be able to but promotions.

    Has anyone got info about who is the voice actor for Gajah Mada?

    He sounds like a middle aged guy with smooth command of Old Javanese, so likely he is a university professor/researcher. That will make it just like Kamehameha who is IIRC voiced by University of Hawaii professor.

    No, but I've tried to find out. I really want to contact him actually and ask him a few questions but fat chance that happens.

    I think there's a good chance he is a very creative type. He has that kind of artistic Javanese flow in his voice that not everybody has

    They might give credit in the manual. The original manual gives credit and the G&K manual might as well. The DLC has no manual, so those people can only be tracked down if they identify themselves (like the voice actor for Kamehameha did). Hopefully, after it is released, you'll have the info you need.

    On the "how else to use Faith with a UU" train of thought: How about a unit that spends Faith for a combat strength boost?

    The voice actors for Augustus and Catherine are also university professors both in McGill in Montreal.

    Was the civilopedia leaked though or just the screenshots for the Venice and Shoshone civs?

    I asked themaelstorm through pm to check the new luxury resources on the civilopedia. He said he will check it when he get back home. He also said that he didn't encountered new resources during play.

    Damn so it is more likely that the civ will only get lux which are not spawned by the game in the map.

    I think it's more likely that he just didn't encounter it because Indonesia never settled on a new continent during his playthrough (the AI doesn't seem to like doing that in all the screenshots I've seen)

    Unless the Venice tips are some unnecessarily elaborate hoax, then Indonesia 100% has a completely new and unique resource

    Well, I take it that he mean he didn't encountered new resources on the map. But dunno.

    We know that there will be new resource(s) tied to a civ and now we're pretty sure that civ is Indonesia. So I will be surprised and disappointed if it's not a brand new unique resource.

    Very good catch. I really hope they change "Spices" to Tea or Coffee or something else that's not a spice, though, since Nutmeg is a spice.

    The next question then is: Is it just (6x) Nutmeg, or are there 2 or 3 types of luxuries unique to Indonesia?
