    Yeah, you've got a point there - Our World is basically Scapegrace and Urdnot Scott's Fun Design House. Not that I'm complaining, of course!

    Yeah, I was gonna say... bit odd. Hence why my own Nicaraguan design is rather more left-facing than that. =]

    Hum, here are my takes on Costa Rica & Nicaragua, based off your designs of course:

    Costa Rica (Jose Figueres Ferrer)
    Start Bias: Coastal Jungle
    Capital: San Jose
    UA: Pura Vida
    After adopting an Ideology, Cities Generate +5% Tourism for each unimproved tile within their territory. 1 Extra Happiness from Discovery of Natural Wonders.
    UU: Carretero (Replaces Worker)
    Ignores Difficult Terrain, unlike the Worker it replaces, and generates culture from moving.
    UB: Eco Hotel (replaces Hotel)
    50% of the Culture output of Wonders and Improvements added to the City as Tourism. + 50% of the Tourism from Great Works in City. Additionally, 50% of the Food Generated by Jungles in city is added as Tourism as well as the total Yields of Natural Wonders worked by the city.

    Normally I'm against percentage bonuses, but I'll make an exception here because if it were raw yields the mechanic would be terribly abusable through founding cities everywhere after adopting Ideologies. It was odd that the Posterchild of Ecotourism didn't have Eco Hotels as the unique, so I set out to correct that, transforming the Carretería in an unit while I was at it to give the civ something to do early game and because having a military unique unit for a nation which... doesn't have military felt off.

    Nicaragua (Augusto César Sandino)
    Start Bias: Coastal
    Capital: Managua
    UA: Gobernar Desde Abajo
    At the Outbreak of War, spawn a Barbarian Land Military Unit outside the other nation's Capital each time you adopt a Social Policy. Generates Tourism against civs whose units you kill within your territory equal to the defeated unit's strenght.
    UU: Sandinista (replaces Infantry)
    Starts with Woodsman. Additionally, unlike the Infantry it replaces, it may construct a Barbarian Encampment on Forest and Jungle Tiles in enemy territory. It is also cheaper.
    UI: Galeria Praxis (replaces Museum)
    When the theming bonus of a Galeria Praxis is fulfilled, the cost of Social Policies is lowered by 5% (max. 50%) and the Culture output of the City in which it is built is increased by 25%. Contains a slot for a Great Artist. Does not require an Opera House.

    Talk about long UAs. I liked the general feel of the civ, but I didn't think the Production bonus was fitting, so I changed it to something that'd make more sense (Iran Contras anyone?). Something's telling me that UA is too long to properly appear in the description however.

    Pre-Sandanista Nicaragua, silly geese. It was a Somoza civ.

    Yeah it'd be a good idea to not make all of Our World's Latin American civs left wing. I mean Chavez and Fidel are already planned so an environmental or right wing Latin American civ would be nice for the sake of variety. Or a drug cartel civ, my personal choice, just because I think they could have some pretty cool and unique mechanics :p

    I find the cartels and the drug war fascinating, so I'd be down for that but I'm not sure it fits in with the mechanics of Civ.

    Unless....

    The Somozas were horrifying dictators backed by the Americans while people starved in the streets... and while they came before the Sandinista movement, the dynasty came to power as the result of an American-supported coup d'état against Sandino.

    Just throwing that out there.

    Eh, if we're up to making a Drug Cartel civ, why go with anything but the biggest?

    A Colombian Civ led by Pablo Escobar would be awesome, I mean, it'll probably get you more flak than most of the other civs together but still, awesome.

    (I know he wasn't president, but he had so much money and power he probably was more powerful than him).

    I honestly don't see why there'd be a problem with doing Somoza or the drug cartels. There's already mods for Hitler, Stalin and Mao and there's a planned Fidel mod so you have the 4 worst dictators of the 20th century, at least in my opinion. Somoza was a horrible dictator, but all the stuff that happened to the people in his reign (starvation, poverty, etc) happened during Fidel's reign as well and is still going on in Cuba today. And yeah, while the cartels are terrible and commit many more crimes than drug trafficking like murder, kidnapping, etc, they're still immensely important in today's world and modern history so if there's a way to represent them reasonable in Civ, I don't see why not.

    I'm not here to start a debate and I completely respect your opinion on both subjects as I can completely understand why you'd feel that way about having them in Civ, but I personally don't see why any significant organization, civ, or leader can't be added as a mod. It's just a firm opinion that I have so I tend to argue it whenever it comes up.

    Seriously? There's no way that Fidel is in the top four. Ismail Enver Pasha, Leopold II, Kim Jong-Il, Hideki Tojo, Pol Pot and many more were far worse than Fidel ever was.

    I specifically said in my opinion. I'm Cuban and as a Cuban I've felt and seen and personally known far more people that have been affected by Fidel than by Pol Pot or Gaddafi or whoever. As a result, I personally hate Fidel and his government more than the regime of those other people. Objectively Pol Pot is worse than Fidel, he killed more people, but more subjectively from my point of view, Fidel is worse. You could argue with me as much as you want, but my opinion will not change. Fidel and his regime have destroyed my country and it's peoples, not just political executions, like my grandmother's first husband who was executed by Che Guevara, but also the people who's lives are ruined by of the situation Fidel has created in Cuba over time. If it wasn't for the terrible poverty and scarcity of resources in Cuba my cousin wouldn't have been assaulted while walking to a birthday party at night by a man hiding in the bushes with a baseball bat and possibly have permanent brain damage now. If it wasn't for Cuba's policies and position during the Cold War, another cousin of mine wouldn't have been sent to Angola to fight alongside communist insurgents and lost an arm over there. There are far too many people in my family that have been impacted incredibly negatively by Fidel's regime for my opinion on him to be anything less than in the same class as Hitler, Stalin, and Mao and for my opinion on Communism to be anything other than it is the worst political and economic system man has ever created. My opinion on those two things will not change. Think what you want of me, I don't give a f*ck.

    Anyway, let's stop derailing Scapegrace's thread.

    Yeah... that was really uncalled for. Particularly because this is Scapegrace´s thread and she's made it very clear before that she won't do designs for civs she has personal issues for.

    So, leaving that behind, any comments on my take on your civs Scape, maybe?

    Yeah. I... I think they're okay? However, I think the Carretero in particular needs work.

    ---

    UU: Carretero (replaces Worker)
    Unlike the Worker it replaces, ignores all movement penalties and generates Culture when building or repairing Roads and Railroads. May be expended for a small Culture boost in Cities with a Museum.

    ---

    Generating Culture from moving around seemed just a little OP, especially since you can have loads of them walking in a circle with no real impact on the game. Personally, I like my take better (big surprise), but your ideas do have a lot to recommend them. I also like the second half of your Nicaragua UA a lot. =]

    Scapegrace's Palais Du Rhin Presents
    KNOWLEDGE IS A LIGHTED LANTERN
    Civilizations of the Middle East, Old and New

    Spoiler The Amalekites :
    The Amalekites (Agag)
    Start Bias: Desert
    Capital: Amalek
    UA: The Sword That Bereaves
    Melee Land Units gain a +1% Combat Bonus against units from a Major Civilization for each turn you are at war with them. Your Cities generate +2 Faith per turn while at war for each other Major Civilization allied to you in that war.
    UU: Sabu Nagib (replaces Spearman)
    Starts with the Drill I and +1 Movement promotions. Additionally, has the promotion "Na-Arun", which grants it a 50% chance of increasing its base Combat Strength by 1 every time it kills a unit. Upgrades to Swordsman.
    UB: Sacred Palms (replaces Temple)
    +2 Faith, +2 Food. Generates +1 additional Faith and +5% Growth for each Major Civilization with whom you have a common enemy.


    Spoiler Artaxiad Armenia :
    Artaxiad Armenia (Artaxias I)
    Start Bias: Hills
    Capital: Artaxata
    UA: Songs Of Koght'en
    If you issue a Joint Declaration of War against another Major Civilization, enter a Golden Age the first time you capture a City. Golden Ages last 10% longer and increase the Culture and Production output of all Cities by a further 10% for each non-Occupied foreign Capital under the Empire's control.
    UU: Ayrudzi (replaces Chariot Archer)
    Unlocked somewhat later than the Chariot Archer it replaces (at Engineering), and commensurately more expensive (90 vs. 56 at Standard speed), the Ayrudzi nevertheless has much to recommend it. They are much stronger, having 11 CS and 14 Ranged CS, ignore Rough Terrain Penalties, have a base movement of 3 with the Mobility promotion (for a total of 4), can move after attacking, and start with Volley. This is a powerful ranged unit, designed to excel at taking down cities. Upgrades to Crossbowman.
    UB: Philhelline Theatre (replaces Colosseum)
    Standard Colosseum benefits. Additionally, generates +20% Gold and +1 Golden Age point per turn when the City is sending an International Trade Route and contains a slot for a Great Work of Writing.


    Spoiler Bactria :
    Bactrian Empire (Eucratides)
    Start Bias: Grassland
    UA: Opulentissimum Bactrianum
    Cities generate +15% Food when connected to the Capital, and the Capital generates +4 Gold for each City connected to it. Occupied Cities receive a free Courthouse upon Connection to the Capital.
    UU: Thorakitai (replaces Swordsman)
    More expensive than the Swordsman, but starts with Cover I and March, as well as the additional unique promotion "Thureos", granting a +33% Combat Bonus while defending against Melee attack. Upgrades as normal. Requires Iron.
    UB: Phroyrion (replaces Market)
    Standard Market benefits. Additionally, generates +1 Gold and +5% Military Unit Production bonus for each different Major Civilization sending an International Trade Route to you. +3 CS and +25 City HP.


    Spoiler Colchis :
    Colchis (Kuji)
    Start Bias: Forest
    Capital: Aia
    UA: Heads Of Kartli
    Each Courthouse in the Empire adds an additional +2 to all the yields of the Palace. Begin with a unique World Wonder in the Capital that provides +4 Gold, +4 Happiness, and +1 Culture - a yield which increases by +1 each time you advance to a new Era.
    UU: Milesian (replaces Worker)
    Generates +1 Gold in the Capital and closest Colchian City while constructing a Tile Improvement. This bonus is doubled if improving Luxury Resources. May be expended to hurry Military Production in the Capital.
    UU: Sceptuchus (replaces Great General)
    Generates +2 Gold, Production, Science, Culture, and Faith when garrisoned in a non-Occupied City. These yields increase by +1 for each Courthouse in the Empire.


    Spoiler The Hephthalites :
    The Hephthalites (Mihirakula)
    Start Bias: Plains
    Capital: Piandjikent
    UA: Sveta Huna
    Military Units garrisoned in Cities generate a +1% Military Production bonus in that City for each Puppeted City you control, increasing to +2% if the Puppeted City is a former Capital. All Units may move after attacking.
    UU: Asbarobido (replaces Great General)
    Standard Great General abilities. However, any unit with 3 or more Movement Speed gains an increased Combat Bonus (25% vs. 15%) if both it and the Asbarobido moved at least one tile during the Hephthalite's previous turn. The Capital generates Great People +5% faster for each Asbarobido in enemy territory.
    UU: Tokharoi (replaces Composite Bowman)
    Though much more susceptible to melee attack than the Composite Bowman it replaces (with a Combat Strength of 5 rather than a still-pretty-rubbish 7), the Tokharoi is faster, with a base Movement of 3 and the ability to ignore Terrain Penalties for movement (retained upon upgrading). It also has Mobility and the unique promotion, "Wusun Vultures", that allows it to gain a temporary +3% Combat Bonus when attacking per point of yields of the tile it is stationed on when it pillages that tile's Improvement. The bonus is removed on the next turn. Requires Horses and counts as a Mounted Unit. Upgrades as normal. Wusun Vultures is retained upon upgrading.
    ===
    How Wusun Vultures works:-
    Your Tokharoi is stationed on a Flood Plains tile with Wheat. With a Farm and a Granary in range, that yields 5 Food. If you pillage the farm that turn, the Tokharoi gains a +15% Combat Bonus when attacking that turn.

    Your Tokharoi is stationed on a Desert tile with only a Trading Post. Pillaging the Trading Post will only grant a +3% Combat Bonus.

    Of course, it'd account for yields from buildings, religions, and the like.


    Spoiler Iran :
    Iran (Ruhollah Khomeini)
    Start Bias: Desert
    Capital: Tehran
    UA: Three Pillars
    Purchasing Military Units with Faith grants a flat boost of Culture equal to the amount of Faith expended. while purchasing Military Units with Gold increases the amount of Faith generated in the Capital by +2. Post-Industrial Units may be purchased with Faith after the adoption of an Ideology.

    Starts with 1 additional Experience Point for every 3 points of Faith per turn generated in the Capital (max. 45). When in foreign territory, generates Gold per kill; when in Iranian territory, generates Faith per kill.
    UB: Komiteh (replaces Police Station)
    Standard Police Station benefits. Generates +1 Faith for every 3 Unhappiness in the City in which it is built. After selecting your first Level 3 Ideological Tenet, generates +1 Culture and Gold per Ideological Tenet unlocked.


    Spoiler Nicaea :
    Nicaea (Theodore I)
    Start Bias: Coastal
    Capital: Nicaea
    UA: To Regain Constantinople
    Land Units gain a +25% Combat Bonus when attacking enemy Cities, rising to +50% if the target City used to be owned by you or a Civilization with whom you have a Declaration of Friendship. Captured Cities convert to the Empire's majority Religion.
    UU: Allagion (replaces Longswordsman)
    Weaker than the Longswordsman it replaces (18 vs. 21), the Allagion is cheaper to build and may be bought with Gold at half the usual price. However, its true power lies in its unique promotion, "Pronoiarios", which grants a +5% Combat Bonus while attacking for each Bonus or Strategic Resource Tile within range of the City in which it was trained, and a +10% one for each Luxury Resource Tile within range of that City. Each bonus maxes out at 50%. Requires Horses instead of Iron.
    UU: Archontopoulai (replaces Knight)
    Unlike the Knight it replaces, it starts with Formation I, Cover I, and a unique promotion, "Sons Of The Victorious Dead", that allows them to deal +33% additional damage to any unit that has killed a Nicaean unit, including Cities. Similarly, it has no Combat Penalty against cities either. While more expensive, it is considerably cheaper to buy with Faith and does not require the Holy Warriors belief to do so.


    Spoiler Ottoman Beylik :
    Ottoman Beylik (Orhan Bey)
    Start Bias: Grassland
    Capital: Sogut
    UA: Pelekanon And Onward
    Land Units gain a Combat Bonus in foreign territory that increases the closer they are to that Civilization's Capital. Upon Declaring War with a Major Civilization, receive a copy of a Unique Unit for which you have the requisite Technology from a Civilization not in the game.
    UU: Yaya (replaces Longswordsman)
    Cheaper and weaker than the Longswordsman it replaces, the Yaya is faster, with the +1 Movement promotion. They also receive the unique promotion "Anvil of Marica", which allows adjacent units deal +50% bonus damage when defending against Mounted Units and +33% when attacking them. Upgrades to Musketman as normal, but does not require Iron.
    UU: Timariot (replaces Lancer)
    The Timariot is unlocked at Banking and has the unique promotion "Jebelu Muster" that allows adjacent Ottoman units to earn Experience 50% faster when defending. Requires Horses. Upgrades to Cavalry.


    Spoiler Pontus :
    Pontus (Mithridates VI)
    Start Bias: Coastal
    Capital: Amaseia
    UA: Eupator Dionysus
    Generate +20% Culture in the Capital for each Major Civilization with whom you are at war. Generate +0.5 Influence per turn with any City-State with whom you have a Trade Route for each foreign Capital you control.
    UU: Takabara (replaces Swordsman)
    Does not require Iron. Slightly stronger than the Swordsman it replaces (16 vs. 14), the Takabara starts with Charge and a unique promotion, "Sagaris", that grants a +33% Combat Bonus on the first turn they enter combat with an enemy Unit. Double Movement on Hills.
    UB: Heroon (replaces Monument)

    Spoiler The Sassanids :

    UU: Mangenik (replaces Catapult)
    Slightly cheaper than the Catapult it replaces, the Mangenik starts with Cover I and the unique Promotion "Koshkanjir", which grants it both a Defensive Combat Bonus from Difficult Terrain and a +25% Combat Bonus while attacking if it shares a Tile with a Civilian Unit or Great Person.
    UI: Siege Mound (All New!)
    An entirely new and very different Unique Improvement, the Siege Mound can only be constructed within 2 Tiles of a City not under the control of the Sassanids. It is an offensively oriented edifice, as it causes the Tile upon which it is constructed to count as a Hill for purposes of Line of Sight, Vision, Terrain Bonuses, and so on. Furthermore, Siege Units stationed atop a Siege Mound gain an additional +33% Combat Bonus when attacking Cities. Upon signing a Peace Treaty with the relevant party, all Siege Mounds in Sassanid Territory are removed.


    Spoiler Urartu :
    Urartu (Semiramis)
    Start Bias: Coastal
    Capital: Tushpa
    UA: Reach Of Argishti
    Gain a +2% Military Production bonus in all Cities for each Major Civilization with whom you are trading a Strategic or Luxury Resource. Generate +2 Faith for each Major Civilization with whom you have a direct land border.
    UU: Mare-Man (replaces Chariot Archer)
    Unlike the Chariot Archer it replaces, the Mare-man is a melee unit. Also vastly different to the Chariot Archer, it starts with Formation I, +1 Movement, and the unique promotion "Suri of Haldi", which grants a +5% Combat Bonus for every Shrine and Temple in the Empire, to a maximum of +50%. Upgrades to Knight.
    UB: Sisi (replaces Temple)
    +2 Faith. Costs no Maintenance, and generates +1 Faith for each Military Unit trained or purchased for Faith in the City in which it is built. Each Sisi lowers the cost of purchasing Military Land Units with Faith by -5%, to a maximum of -50%.

    UU: Garde Civique (replaces Musketman)

    UB: Cockerill Mill (replaces Factory)

    ===

    Spoiler Brittany :
    Brittany (Nominoe)

    UU: Quanon (replaces Cannon)
    Unlike the Cannon it replaces, the Quanon is rooted in historical accuracy; rather than being an artillery piece of the Renaissance, this unit becomes available at Civil Service and is a superlative besieging unit. It starts with Volley and Armour Plating I, giving it access to this promotion tree, as well as having 18 Melee Combat Strength vs. 14, making them exceptionally durable. However, they are more expensive than Cannons (296 vs. 185 Production on Standard speed) and require Iron.
    UB: Confrérie de Sainte-Barbe (replaces Workshop)
    Available at Theology rather than Metal Casting, unlike the Workshop it replaces, the Confrérie de Sainte-Barbe has all the standard Workshop bonuses. It also grants newly-trained Siege Units Great Generals I and the unique promotion "Fondeurs Reputes", granting them +1 Range and a +25% Combat Bonus while Attacking when within range of a Great General. More expensive (160 vs. 120 Production on Standard speed), but may be purchased with Faith.


    Spoiler The Cathars :
    The Cathars (Esclarmonde de Foix)
    Start Bias: Grassland
    Capital: Carcassonne
    UA: The Good Men

    Capital: Amvrakia
    UA: Pyrrhus Aspetos

    UU: Ptolemaic Elephant (replaces Chariot Archer)
    Unlike the Chariot Archer it replaces, the Ptolemaic Elephant is, er, an elephant. It retains the standard bonuses of the Chariot Archer, but gets double movement in rough terrain rather than being stopped dead by it. It is also 5% cheaper for every Declaration of Friendship you have with another Major Civilization. Upgrades to Crossbowman.
    UU: Tarantine Cavalry (replaces Horseman)
    A very powerful battlefield unit, the Tarantine Cavalry begins with a trait and a promotion. The trait is First Strike, whose utility is well known from the Impi. The promotion, "Perispasmoi", is unique and grants double movement after attacking. Requires Horses and upgrades to Knight.


    Spoiler The EU :
    The European Union (Robert Schuman)
    Start Bias: Grassland
    Capital: Bruxelles
    UA: United In Diversity

    UB: Eurotower (replaces Stock Exchange)
    +3 and +33% Gold. 3 Merchant slots. +2 Gold and +2 Culture per incoming and outgoing Trade Route.
    UU: Eurofor (replaces Paratrooper)
    Though stronger and 25% more expensive than the Paratrooper it replaces (70 Combat Strength vs. 65), the Eurofor is unable to Pillage tiles or attack enemy units, but may defend against them normally and does contribute towards Flanking bonuses for other units. However, it starts with Cover II and Medic I, and grants adjacent units a +25% Combat Bonus while defending. Cities with a Eurofor garrison heal at double the normal rate and have +25% City Defensiveness when at war, and gain a 5% bonus to all yields when at peace.

Buildings are 1% cheaper to purchase with Gold for each Building you purchase with Gold or Faith, or acquire for free*.
    UI: Kontor (All new!)
    Unlocks at Currency. The Kontor must be constructed directly adjacent to a foreign City and may replace an existing Improvement. It yields +2 Gold and +2 Food, and generates an additional +1 Gold after Compass and Banking are researched and +1 Food after Navigation is researched. 5% of that City's Gold output is generated in the Hanse's Capital. Only one Kontor may be constructed per City. Takes twice as long to build as a standard tile improvement.
    UU: Cog (replaces Galleass)
    Unlike the Galleass it replaces, the Cog can enter deep ocean. It is also slightly faster, with a base movement of 4, starts with Volley and Bombardment I, and is a lot more expensive. The first time you build one, begin a Golden Age.


    Spoiler The Hussites :
    The Hussites (Jan Hus)
    Start Bias: Grassland
    Capital: Prague
    UA: Chalice People
    Units gain a +25% Combat Bonus when fighting against followers of the same religion. Spawn a Great Prophet the first time you spawn a Great General.
    UU: Wagenburg (replaces Cannon)
    Slightly more expensive than the Cannon it replaces (210 Production vs. 185 on Standard Speed) and requiring both Horses and Iron, the Wagenburg had better be worth it - and it is. Available at Theology, the Wagenburg is the only military unit that can occupy the same tile as another military unit. It still has to set up to fire, but it has both Medic I & II and the unique "Houfnice and Pistala" Promotion, allowing it to contribute its own Melee Combat Strength to the base Combat Strength of a unit occupying the same tile when that unit is defending (for instance, a Swordsman would have 14+14=28 Combat Strength before any bonuses from Promotions). Upgrades as normal.
    UU: Zizkan Infantry (replaces Longswordsman)
    Cheaper than the Longswordsman it replaces (96 Production vs. 120 on Standard speed), the Zizkan Infantry is a powerful counterattacking unit. It starts with both Charge and the unique "Sudomer" Promotion, granting a +50% Combat Bonus while Attacking if it is below 75% HP and ignoring the Combat Penalty for being below full strength.

    Start Bias: Hills
    Capital: Limbourg
    UA: Lands Of The Overmaas
    Units receive double movement and a Defensive Combat Bonus on Hill tiles. Social Policies and Ideological Tenets grant bonuses in the Capital, depending on the Ideology and Social Policy Tree*.
    UU: Piekdrager (replaces Longswordsman)
    Unlike the Longswordsman it replaces, the Piekdrager is a formidable defensive line, gaining a +15% Combat Bonus while Defending for each adjacent Limburger unit. It also starts with the unique promotion "Worringen Remembered", which grants it the ability to generate 1 Culture for every 3 damage it takes from an enemy attack, and Medic I. Upgrades as normal.

    Lorraine (René II)
    Start Bias: Grassland

    UU: Vorhut (replaces Pikeman)
    A radically different unit to the Pikeman it replaces, the Vorhut has 4 base Movement and is slightly stronger (18 vs. 16). In addition to the standard bonuses of the Pikeman, it starts with Sentry I and II, as well as the unique promotion "Murten Surge", allowing it to deal additional damage the more it has moved each turn.

    UB: Noria (replaces Water Mill)

    UU: Dghajsa (replaces Work Boat)
    The Dghajsa can be expended for a Luzzi instead of a Fishing Boat, which generates +1 Food in addition to any other yields and generates +1 Golden Age point per turn on Fish, Whales, or Crab. More expensive than the Work Boat it replaces.


    Spoiler Naxos :
    Naxos (Marco I)
    Start Bias: Coastal
    Capital: Chora
    UA: Duchy Of The Archipelago
    Upon sending a Sea Trade Route to another Naxian City, they are connected by a unique "Sea Lane" City Connection which grants +10% Growth and Naval Unit Production in the target City and the Capital. Roads and Railroads within workable range of a Coastal City or a City with a Contrafossa do not cost any Maintenance.
    UU: Galea Sottile (replaces Caravel)
    The Galea Sottile is an apex predator of the high seas, though far more suited to coastal combat than the Caravel it replaces. It starts with the unique promotion "Scaloccio", granting it +2(!) Movement and a +33% Combat Bonus when beginning its turn on or adjacent to a Land or Atoll Tile; however, this is counterbalanced by it suffering a -25% Combat Penalty on Ocean Tiles. It also has Coastal Raider I. Much more expensive than the Caravel it replaces (180 Production vs. 120 on Standard). Upgrades as normal.
    UI: Contrafossa (All New!)
    Unlocked at Chivalry, the Contrafossa is an excellent addition to the Naxian shipbuilding industry. It may only be built on Coastal tiles within workable range of a City which is not itself Coastal. However, it grants +2 Production and Gold from the off, and - and this is the awesome part - allows the City working it to construct Naval Units and Buildings if the Tile improved by a Contrafossa also has a Road on it. It also generates +1 Production and Gold for each Naval and Military Building built in the City working it, and enemy units take an additional 20 HP damage if they end their turn adjacent to it. However, there is a considerable downside: only one may be built per Naxian City, it cannot be swapped between Cities, and in order to construct the Contrafossa one must destroy a Worker.


    Spoiler Rasenna :
    Rasenna (Tarchon)
    Start Bias: Coastal
    Capital: Velzna
    UA: Macstarna
    Upon annexing and building a Courthouse in an enemy Capital, increase the yields of all Farms within range of your own Capital by +1. Melee Units gain double XP when attacking Cities.
    UU: Devoted (replaces Swordsman)

The second, "Axes of Tyllius", grants a +50% Combat Bonus against the Spearman upgrade line. Requires 2 Iron. Upgrades to Longswordsman as normal.
    UU: Lauc (replaces Horseman)
    Much more expensive than the Horseman it replaces, the Lauc starts with 5 base Movement AND the +1 Movement Promotion, which is retained upon upgrading to Knight. It also starts with Sentry I. Requires Horses.

Generates Gold per Kill. Upgrades to Cavalry. Requires Horses.
    UB: Whitehall Circle (replaces Museum)
    The Whitehall Circle does not cost Maintenance, unlike the Museum it replaces. On the contrary, it generates +2 Gold per turn, with an additional +2 Gold generated once the Theming Bonus is active. It also contains an Artist Specialist Slot.

    UU: Flying Cossack (replaces Cavalry)

It may also Pillage your own Tiles! Upgrades to Landship as normal.

    UU: Yeger Lifeguards (replaces Gatling Gun)

    UU: Ritterbrudern (replaces Knight)
    Not only is the Ritterbrudern faster than the Knight it replaces, with five base Movement, it is also far stronger on the attack. It begins with Charge and a unique promotion, "Muster The Hufen", which grants it a +50% Combat Bonus when attacking in enemy territory if the target unit does not share your religion.

Military Units gain Experience 25% faster for every Major Civilization either Denouncing you or with whom you are at War and generate Gold per Kill.
    UU: Tachanka (replaces Chariot Archer)
    A radically different unit to the Chariot Archer it replaces, the Tachanka is available at Replaceable Parts and has stats relevant to the stage of the game you can get it (32/40 CS).
