    I have to wonder why they even made these guys into named characters. If they had made them a bit more generic, it probably would've been easier to adjust the portraits according to the civ that employs them and thus add a bit more variety.

    Playing with 7 other civs on the map, we'll probably get a lot of Amani-clones in city-states all over the place. Which is kinda weird ...

    Pingala: If there's one thing that millennia of learning as an immortal demigod governor has taught me, it's that I CAN'T ESCAPE THE INDIAN BLOOD RUNNING IN MAH VEINS, NUKE EM ALL!

    Typical bullied geek turned evil mastermind. Plus, as someone already said, Indian.

    He is Indian.

    I suspect he gives the nuclear boost because it's a fallback if you don't feel like using him for the cultural and science victories he's designed for.

    Wow I just noticed Magnus' base ability. That is just brutal.

    Yeah, "The Educator"... That escalated quickly from building Theater Squares quicker to helping you nuke other. 8) That will educate them!

    If wonder if all of them have real life inspirations (not found anything for Amani in a quick search, tough)

    Base or last? Base is strong, but there is a limitted number of chops/harvestings you can do...

    Some are words. Moksha is release or liberation in Hinduism and Buddhism. Amani is the Swahili word for peace. I suspect neither are based on real people. I think Victor comes from Victory and isn't based on a person. Liang apparently means bridge, but I'm not satisfied with that answer.

    And his final benefit is to stack industrial zones. Welcome back crazy industrial zone stacking.

    Moving the governors around will certainly be interesting. Definitely if you have a coastal empire you're going to want Liang to get fisheries up in each city. Although double chopping from Magnus will be huge when you wan to clearcut those rainforest cities.

    Base. The game is a lot about chopping if you want to optimize things, and this is just brutal. People who have time to actually play the game (unlike me) can explain more, but this means taking effectivity of chopping armies, districts or space parts to the whole new level.

    Regarding Liang the Surveyor, I feel they missed a good opportunity to make the aqueduct a bit more useful. She could have had a tier 1 ability that boosted production towards or housing provided by them.
