I've been playing the Illians a lot recently, I really enjoy turning everything to snow it give me a really visceral this is my empire sort of feel, and I had a few questions: 1) Temple of the Hand turns things to snow but if the temple is destroyed when the city is taken or destroyed does the terrain go back to what it was before? 2) If the terrain stays the way it is are other civs less interested in invading since the land is so bad for them? 3) Does the Ice 3 spell snowfall damage your own units? 4) Besides being the Illians or finding Letum Frigus is there any way to get ice mana? 5) How exactly does slow work? 6) What do High Priest of Winter do? They're just so out of the way tech wise I never seem to get them. 7) Without religions is there any way for the Illians to change alignment? 8) If I play the Illians with another leader can they get religions and religious techs? 9) Does Stir from Slumber require anyone to kill another civ or do the Illians have to do it? 10) Does The Deepening always spawn a blizzard and is there anyway to tell where? 11) How exactly do blizzards work? 12) What in the world is the point of Samhain? 13) Do most people use Stasis really early or is there another good time? 14) Does Drifa get the hero promotion? 15) Does anyone else feel there is a natural synergy between the Illians and the Pact of Nilhorn? Thanks. That's a lot more questions than I realized I had creating this thread.
