What is it? I know Isis has it but I dont really get what it does. It says it the Nile River provides free food or something but I just dont get it.

if u are on a water map the water will begin to run into your town and farms and thus u will be farming faster!

Not really: it give u a small food flow (from nowhere, just magically)comparable to 1 villager at food.


what shall I write here?

You gather free food slowly over time, similar to the greek plenty vault... only not as good.

StartTheGame, wasn't the true story something like this? The nile ran through a town and it would flood and therefore more water for better farming ... something like this? I seen it on the discovery channel awhile back

    it gives you 0.1 food a second (1 food every 10 seconds)

    I dont really think its worth it if you dont get it early on - hades vault is much better imo

    Flood of the Nile gives you 0.75 food/second, Vaults of Erebus gives you 0.75 gold/second

    Well actually the nile floods by itself bringing allluvium to the soil and no one ever needed to PAY for it to flood. so i suggest making it a bonus instead of a tech .

    p.s. im sure someone is going to tell me gameplay > realism. -_-''

    It would be too powerful as a bonus...come on, free food in Archaic?

    So Flood of the Nile provides you with a steady tricle of food for the rest of the game? Just like the Plenty Vault?

    I betcha it cost them a bit the first time it flooded and all their stuff got wrecked... second time they would've known better though. There's your justification

    War doesn't decide who's right. It only decides who's left.
