Scientists are supposed to live in ivory towers. Their darkrooms and their vibration-proof benches are supposed to isolate their activities from the disturbances of common life. What they tell us is supposed to be for the ages, not for the next election. But the reality may be otherwise. Simon LeVay Welcome to this terms science department! This terms goal will be to bring ourselves at the top of the international rat race in science, a place we should hold forever. I shall also seek to co-operate with our Warlord, Chieftain and our Governors to seek a path that will be beneficial for them too. Now, to the business of everyday, 1740 AD: Tech/Cost/Benefits/Current Rate/0%/100% Theology: 715 beakers, enables Theocracy, leads to Divine Right. Music: 858 beakers, can contruct Cathedral, can build culture, leads to military tradition Economics: 2002 beakers, enables Free Market, leads to Corporation Chemistry: 2574 beakers, Workshop +1 hammer, can train Grenadier, Frigate, leads to Biology, Steel, Steam Power Scientific Method: 3432 beakers, Obsoletes Monastry, reveals Oil, leads to Communism, Physics, Biology Turns at 0% science (Music/Economics/Chemistry/Scientific Method): 2/2/4/5/8 Turns at current science rate (Music/Economics/Chemistry/Scientific Method): 1/1/2/3/4 Turns at 100% science (Music/Economics/Chemistry/Scientific Method): 1/1/2/2/3 Possible paths: Music (858) - Military Tradition (2860): Can train Cavalry, can build West Point Economics (2002) - Corporation (2288): Can construct Wall Street, +1 traderoute/city Chemistry (2574) - Steam Power (4576): Can train Grenadier, Frigate, reveals Coal, +50% worker speed.
