I never liked the ritual sacrifice option, so I have no experience with it. But now I need something cool for my music tech chooser: The idea: With the enslavement function I create a "civ4-like great person", an opera star. There is a new "unbloody" text like "Will we hire this person for the cultural benefit of our nation ? (or something like that). The cultural gain by sacrifice can be doubled with the improvement opera (or something like that). The units: A lot of the king units I never did use, make a good figure as actors. And for the modern era only one word: Elvis ! For the hire action: no death animation but an animation like the great persons in civ 4 (fidget). I could also need a short good music (la lal la ) to replace that "gulp" sound. The questions: Must the person to "sacrifice" (now to hire for the benefit of the nation) have the worker ability or what other special abilitiy is needed (zero defense) ? Does the AI use the sacrifice function ?
