    Audibly hypnotized. The three hundred-and-twenty-second episode of PolyCast, "The Dulcet Tones", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick and and Jason "MegaBearsFan" Grade with returning guests Scott "AlphaShard" Dirk, "Timothy001" and first-time guest "SeelingCat". It carries a runtime of 59m59s.

    The summary of topics is as follows:

    - 03m53s | Forum Talk
    Differing takes on the challenge of not having strategic resources in Civilization VI, how to redress the current status of the game's Battering Ram unit (15m53s) and quantifying one's choice of civilizations by quality of being "go to" (25m12s; recorded for Episode 319).
    - 45m51s | Theatre
    Setting the stage for future exploits, Amani the Governor for Loyalty pressure and an Artificial Intelligence taking to the skies.

    - Intro/Outro | Assorted
    Feline hierarchical structure and ensuring more that is different than similar.

    PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production recording live every other Saturday throughout the year, in an ongoing effort to give the Civilization community an interactive voice; sibling show ModCast focuses on Civ modding, TurnCast on Civ multiplay.

    Another thing BE did right. Keeping tabs on resource counts to be used for higher level units and buildings. This also creates the possibility of bonuses such as X number of Y resource.

    Higher level units, as in, another means to promotions? A particular line of promotions, like Dark Age Social Policy cards only in Dark Ages or..?

    As in higher level units / buildings requiring resources to build, but resources are abundant with different numbers in each source. You know, like BE.

    BE has several promising ideas, that were never fleshed out. They were dropped from VI. Disappointing.
