    Caravels would only receive the ocean-going-ability one tech later anyways, right? So it's mostly a buff to Korea's Turtle Ship.

    It's a major tech away, because it's in a different era. It also parallels Machinery and Physics, so ships can hold up better against trebuchets and crossbows.

    Compass is easier to beeline to than Astronomy (and cheaper than other techs on its "tech column"). Even if we get Education before Compass, we're still getting Caravels ~10 turns earlier due to the research time required for Astronomy itself.

    What is the difference between coalition and conqueror personalities?

    Coalition allies with citystates, while conqueror attacks them. Conquerors found new cities more aggressively too.
