In my most recent game as the Grigori I started with the Pyre of Seraphic in Midgar's fat cross. I was doing pretty well (the 3 closest Civs all dying to the Gargoyles/Skeletons, giving me tons of expansion space) up until the point when the Orcs and Goblins began to spawn. The first thing the nearest orcs did was pillage the Pyre of Seraphic, unleashing unstoppable fire elementals who instantly obliterated Midgar and abruptly ended my game. Is there any way to prevent the Barbarians from pillaging the Pyre? It seems rather anti-thematic as well as being a really cheap way of losing early on.
