The gods of the Aztec are angry. They demand human sacrifice. They also demand their warriors prove themselves in battle. We play the Aztec (of course). Our variant: 1. We accept no one-sided requests for techs/other stuff--the Aztec civilization is the one who's suppose to be asking for tribute from the puny civs. If relations with a civ asking for tribute drops to annoyed or less the Aztecs will declare war on the civ immediately in order to let their warriors prove themselves in battle (allowed to take peace when we want to). 2. If winning a war the Aztecs has to accept the capitulation the moment it's available in order to be able to sacrifice as much as possible of the opposing tribe to the gods. All captured cities must be whipped down as much as possible after coming out of revolt. 3. In order to be able to use the sacrificial altar a city must have constructed a temple first [must be of the state religion] and be running a priest specialist (all game) to perform the ceremony when it's complete. 4. free religion and pacifism not allowed. 5. All GGs born must be added to a Jaguar (warriors that were able to capture 4-5 enemies alive in battle were able to become an eagle/jaguar warrior thus any successfull general will want to join a Jaguar unit) 6. all military stacks in foreign territory post-IW must consist of at least 1 unit of Jaguars (if the Jaguar dies it must retreat immediately). We'll play immortal again. We have a full (or more than full) roster from the last game so we can't take any more signups. We'll play a low sea level pangea and add a civ for spice. Roster: Ungy Rusten Mystyfly Silverbullet Melior Olodune Pigswill Atropos (roster in no particular order but I thought I'd start it off and Atropos is away for a bit).
