    Well, go to this site http://well-of-souls.com/civ/index.html and fill in the blanks!

    More seriously, Knowing the UBs and the rest of the UUs would be a huge help (Ship of the Line, Mandekalu Cavalry, War elephant, Jaguar). I'd also appreciate a finishing up of Order in the policy trees. (United Front, Nationalism), and the rest of the units/buildings/techs. Don't feel obligated to do it all at once though.

    The bastard is obviously able to read... and is reading it now! Without us. They should only ship books like this before release to ILLITERATES!

    You wouldn't, by chance, happen to have a scanner and a couple free hours, would you?

    Wow, yeah I just realized there's been a bit more updated on Arioch's site than I last saw.

    Anyway, can you fill in the blanks on the the Unique Buildings?

    What's it say, if anything, about Babylon? Also so much for Greg saying it wouldn't be available until the 21st! I'm almost tempted to get this... almost :)

    Are they saying anything about requiring resources or not, because that was a big deal for some of the UU's.

    Wow, the Egyptian UB eats 1 culture. Gah, that blows. And to think a temple is required for some other buildings and wonders.

    So I guess paper maker offsets China's bad unique ability

    Also: Can you list the natural wonders? Let's see how many we end up with in the final game.

    Also fill out the Order social policy if you can.

    keep an eye out on this one, may be an omision of replacement of library in the guide but the guide doesnt state that it is a library replacement were it does for other UBs
