House Rules Edit
Ramping Avatar Cost: Usually this isn't a huge problem but its nice to have a rule to fall back on. The first avatar you purchase is at the listed cost, the second is a listed cost +1, 3rd at +2, 4th at +3, 5th at +5 and so on in the Fibonacci sequence.
Flat Army Cost: Due to previous games often getting bogged down in horrible army spam armies can no longer be acquired more cheaply using avatars. All armies now cost (6/4/2) regardless of whether they were created by a city, an order or an avatar.
Garrisons: All cities count as having a single army which can only be used to defend the city in the event of an attack. War and Chance: When rolling to resolve combat between armies a roll of two 1s always counts as a failure, regardless of any bonuses that army has, a roll of two 6s always count as a success.
Fate: Fate is a "Virtual Player" which is under the collective control of the other players via popular vote, and represents the blind forces of random chance which affect the world. Fate receives 2d6+3 power points every turn and loses all unspent points at the end of a round. Players can propose an action for Fate to take in the ooc thread and if the action gains a simple majority in a vote then the action will be taken.
Free Advance Race on Creation: When a player uses Create Race or Create Subrace and makes a new race they can automatically give the new race an advancement as if they had used the Advance Race power.
Other Race Freebies: On creation a race or subrace can be given one square of territory OR a single city as if the creator had used the Command Race power.
Spreading territory: Players can use Command Race to increase the territorial area a race covers by one square (the same square that was used as a guideline for the terraforming powers). This isn't political territory, it literally just represents the lands in which the race is commonly found living.
