I've been roaming the forums a while so I thought I'd say "Hello." Anyway, my friend and I were discussing ideas to introduce more Sponsors into the game. Of course, the usual "making a new Sponsor or Civilization" is the usual approach, I thought of the idea of keeping most of the Sponsors the same but splitting them off into separate Factions. On a literal standpoint these are just Sponsors and not Factions. So I'm assuming the ARC is comprised of the "Big Three" in North America: Canada, United States, and Mexico. For example, assuming I pick the ARC as a Sponsor it would split up into a category of Factions: ARC :: Canada, United States, and Mexico. ** ARC - Covert Operations are 25% faster and cause 25% more intrigue. * Canada = +1 Food from Plantations and Terrascapes. * United States = +1 Spy after building Spy Agency. * Mexico = +1 Culture and +1 Production from Canyons. In addition, the Sponsor bonus would also apply so they would be getting both a Sponsor bonus and a Unique Ability. Different leaders with more flavor are a must. This would be a way of implementing more leaders while keeping most Sponsors intact as they're all mixed and bunched up together.
