Yeah, I was really enjoying this too. Mind you, I almost never take slavery because I can rarely hold out. I'll often institute a short-term slavery to boost production in a desperate time, but will emancipate thereafter. I'm thinking, by the way, that some changes to slavery might make the civic for emancipation irrelevant, allowing us to consider an alternative. The penalties for slave-holding civs are already strong, and having slaves revolt and join a foreign non-slave-holding civ might be worth considering, and then we can re-use that emancipation civic slot for something else. (Can't remember what it's called and I'm at work, so I can't look it up.) Cheers, Israfil.
