    I'm playing a huge / epic / 11 other civs archepelago map and I've founded a religon (forget which one) and I had my great prophet build the unique building for it.

    I understand that becuase I have that unique building, each city that has my religon tithes one gold to me each turn... is that EVERY city that has my religon (including my own) or just cities of foreign civs?

    Every city that has that religion. Regardless who owns the city.

    So once a city has my religion in it, no matter what other religions are in it and what the state religion is of that city, they will be sending me some scratch per turn... So I really need to get those missionaries out there ASAP. But I can't spread religion if the civ is running Theocracy, corerct?

    I did some checking and answered my own question - I need to hook up Theocracy and Vassalge and beeline to gunpower to crank out Redcoats...

    You also need an Open Borders agreement with the civ in question so your missionaries can enter their territory.

    i've never checked but i always had the impression that the gold you get just comes out of the magical mint. it's not that civ's city losing a gold to give one to you, if that's what you meant. but it's still supersweet to get free gold!

    i'll bet you 2 gold that someone here will correct me if i'm wrong ;)

    you are simply terrible!!!

    make it De Ruijter Vlokfeest Eche Chocolade (i think that's the mixed white and milk?) or the one i just saw on the internet and hadn't ever heard of, Banaanfeest (wow i bet that's good), and you have yourself a deal! you guys get candy for breakfast! :yumyum:

    i'm trying to think of what might be more useful/fun for you than 2 gold. what do my dutch friends think i'm crazy for since they don't get over there and think it sounds utterly wacky? peanut butter cookies, peppermint ice cream (altho it wouldn't travel well)--they consider peppermints as old people food since yours aren't sweet like candy canes. i can't remember what else atm. offer not valid if you send salty licorice drops, ewwww, altho hopjes are a welcome addition. double bonus points if you can guess how long it took me to pronounce muisjes properly.

    i'd miss halloween over there but i'd love to have sinter klaas!!!

    now does the last part of my silly username make sense to you? ;)

    Crap, I'm spreading my religon, but I still have yet to have had a great prophet born... I'm in the 1500's, so stonehenge is way past done. Any suggestions as to get a great prophet birth?

    I started a new game since my first post - Now I'm Roman for the Praetorians...

    Run priest specialists. You'll need temples in the city to assign priests.

    Ah, gotcha. Actually, I've not even ventured into that part of the game - micromanagement of citizens per each city. This game I focused on concentrating my production in one city - turns out very nice!

    When I run priest specialists do they increase the chances of creating a Great Prophet, or ANY great person?

    Short answer: they increase the chances of creating a Great Prophet.
