Playing my first game of Rise and Fall as the Cree and I'm loving it. Their UU and UI come in the Ancient Era which gives you about +3 Era Score each, helps you get a Golden Age by Classical. Exodus of the Evangelists is a blast. Usually I don't try a RV unless I build a holy site in the Ancient Era because the Prophet will be too far away or be taken, but the Prophet points you get from the dedication (+Revelation card) will guarantee you a religion. Soon Scotland and France declared a joint war on me. Era Scores for converting Scottish and French cities into my religion while at war. I end up capturing Paris and Sterling (+1 Scottish city) by the end of the war and a Golden Medieval Age again! Gandhi didn't have much problem for my warmongering for some reason. The Cree land grab is awesome. After choosing Monumentality for my Medieval Dedication I founded 3 more cities. I never had a Production problem in any of my cities and I assume it's the Mekewap bonus. The trade route land grab is endless fun to play with when you have 10 cities on a continent and a lot of tiles fall under a radius of 3 from the City Center. My sprawling empire eventually included flipped French cities, with the Medici knocked out due to rebellion. But after all the Wonders and the Great People I hoarded and my first maxed-out Governor I missed the Era Score by one to get a Golden Age by the Renaissance. So there I am right now, controlling an Empire of 13 cities of gigantic territory from coast to coast with British, French and First Nations presence (similar to... Canada, but the difference being it's the First Nations who successfully defied European imperialistic agenda) and going for a RV pumping out Yerevan apostles from a city with a maxed-out Cardinal. I already have 3 Civs converted and my apostles are insanely strong, Pilgrim+Altitude Training+Proselytizer/Debater+Mosque+Patron Saint+Theocracy+Religious Orders is an invincible combination. I intend to win by late Renaissance/mid-Industrial. How does Era Score work by the way? It doesn't seem to carry over because I had hoarded some insane Era Score in Classical only to find out I have to start again from zero in the Medieval. And in the latter I missed the Golden Age by one which didn't carry over either because now in the Renaissance, I can definitely use some to avoid a Dark Age after starting from zero again. What's the point of getting extra Era Scores if you already hit Golden?
