http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=263711810 Obvious options : 1) 10% growth, always good. 2) +1 culture and faith from gold, there are 4 gold in range. 3) +1 food from camps, 3 of them in range. 4) Faith from desert. 7 desert tiles in range, 6 of them will be worked pretty early. Here is what I am thinking : Gold seems obvious, however early you want to grow, and with all the river tiles + camps, + sheep + oasis you won't be working the gold for a long while, so you would not be getting the faith and culture anyway and picking this pantheon would be a waste. Big hesitation between picking food from camps or 10% growth. Camps would give a solid +3 food, how does that compare to 10% growth? I wish i knew the formulae for growth, does anyone here know the details of the math behind these and explain what would be more advantageous in this situation? Last option, faith from desert, that's at least 6-7 faith very early from working river tiles anyway. Better than a mt sinai! So, what would you do?
