    I wanted to know whether the developers were considering building out nation-specific random events? I think there's a little bit of that in Greece at the beginning. I can see pros and cons to this - pros are role playing and helping each civ feel differently. But cons are it can prevent player from wanting to tell their own story, and also balance issues. I still prefer them b/c i like having civs feel more different but what were others' thoughts?

    Maybe this could be a thread for random event commentary in general.

    I think in general there should be more events based off of whether individuals (and families) like/hate you and how much. I haven't felt any repercussions from individuals / relatives hating me, except for the one time i bypassed two heirs, declined to arrest them just to see what would happen, and then both of them assassinated me :) (and then were cool with being under the heir I bypassed them for! maybe they should have killed the heir too) I've also seen zero repercussions from your spouse liking or hating you.

    Hmmh, I think there are more of such nation-specific events in the beginning. Having this very ambitious brother seems to be quite dangerous for your heirs ... And that "Queen", who has a daughter, but no consort (in the family tree!!) calls for specific events.
    I love those too! Probably not all elements are obvious & understandable at first sight (beyond monkey business) ... isn't it strange e.g. your scouts can relieve a prisoner from foreign soldiers, who turn out as yet unknown family members later?

    Also I think, much more events are going to be implemented the coming months. -- You have to rule an empire, not just manage a couple of cities and fight a war now and then ... ;)
    Now for THAT we'll have to wait until all buildings etc. are polished and ready. :p
