T23: Himoko levies Taruga. Also thanks to Himoko, we can pick a pandemic this urn. As expected Religious Settlements is already taken, but sadly our second choice Lady of the Reeds and Marshes is also gone. That Pantheon would have really let our core cities balance growth and production. We can take the somewhat boring but effective Divine Spark instead.
The hut has an envoy as well as a valuable Voidsingers invitation. We can send the envoy to Hattusa right away, revealing another hut but unfortunately no new AI targets. We discover another Hero, this time the unimpressive Maui. Hattusa also reveals a spot for a future coastal hill city with 3 Horses in the third ring and Bear Tree Clan, which is selling Warriors.
Finally, with EE complete we can sell Open Borders. OB is worth 15g+12g to Mali and England. That's enough for another Builder, who's job will be to chop dome Settlers.
