I guess now is a good time to start talking about what leader we want. The game will probably be unrestricted leaders (meaning you can pick the Civ, and the Leader seperately) and we will almost certainly be selecting via snake pick. Snake pick means you get a random order to pick either your civ or leader, then you pick the other in reverse order. For example, if you get first pick of your Civ, then you get last pick of your leader. It's how fantasy drafts usually work. Here is a link to a BTS Leader Picker program on CFC. It lets you choose the combination of traits you want and tells you what leader has them. This is an excellent article on Leader Traits in PDF format here on CFC. Its called Self Actualiztion, Axemen and You by Sisiutil. Anyone wanting info on the relative strengths and weaknesses of the different traits should definitely check this one out. I thought of making this thread a poll, but there are way too many choices for that. Maybe we can poll when we narrow it down to a few choices. Here is A CFC chart displaying all the Leaders w/descriptions of their traits/benefits and Civilizations along with their UUs, UBs and starting techs.
