I read about Omens and thought it would be interesting. I spent my time just converting the natives (That was easy) and expanding into the huge valley. I didn't attack anyone once (A rarity for me in these games) when the messengers show up nothing big happens until Death. Then every turn he wipes out my cities. Does he ever go away or is it just that you play each turn watching yourself get wiped out? I didn't understand what triggered his attacks. We had a much higher spread rate of protestantism than the french do catholic. We had much higher score.
