I would like to know which culture you would like to play and which God to workship.And if possible give reasons for your answer.

The Zeus worshipping Greeks.

The Greeks are always my personal favorite and Zeus's lightning is simply cool

Norse --> Thor

Favour gathering method is right up my alley, and they generally sound like they'll fit my playing style.

I don't know, but I guess when first time puting AoM into my computer I'll play the egyptians, (and I'll faint, imagine this moment!) 'cause of their buildings and their chariots.

Where's paradise?...............AoM is....In war there're only loosers!
Paradise is in your heart - ..gonna come! Love is the soul's blood!
open your heart and you'll be in paradise!..There's no uncertainty, there's only hope!

Nothing...its legs are both equal, all about the right one!...=> A blue couch!

Norse and Thor in DM (DMs constitute about 90% of the AoC games I play on the zone), since I'm a very aggressive DM player. Greek and Poseidon is also a possibility, cause Poseidon introduced the horse to man, so they'll probably get some kind of cavalry bonus, and Franks are one of my fave AoC civs.

I got no idea for RM, tho... At least I have a few months to think it over.

I can't put a finger on it, but for some reason the Norse seem coolest to me.

Greeks and Posidon cause it'll be cool to see ships wiped sucked into the water in sea maps. And Loki on land maps cause of the meteor showers.

jduderocks- it's possible that those criteria might not narrow it down enough for you. AoM is currently slated to have a full cast of minor deities such as (aka ES, plz include these ) Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Thoth, Isis, Sebek, Balder, Freyr and Freyja, and each one of these deities are supposed to have their own MU and god power, I believe.

wait a sec- i thought choosing deities only gave you different god powers, and i thought the tech tree was the same. does the tech tree change too?

bismarck- i wasn't talkin' about the tech tree. As is, u can select some minor deities under your major deities, and I believe each one gives u a unique MU and god power. No idea on tech trees, tho.

ya thats what i thought... but i quote u...

u can select some minor deities under your major deities, and I believe each one gives u a unique MU and god power...

end quote


this implies that when playing, u only get one mu, is that right?

bismark, here is how I think it works (from the ideas of IC, not sold at a retailer near you):

I pick Greeks as my culture. I now choose between Poseidon, Zeus and Hades as my main gods. If I choose Zeus, then I build a large temple to him. Now I can use the lightning god power and I am granted the ability to build hydras. I can build as many of these hydras as I want, as long as I have enough resources to build them. Next, I build a minor temple to Athena. Now not only do I have the lightning god power, but I also have the meteor god power at my disposal too. And now I can build as many Minotaurs as I want, as long as I have enough resources.

Re-cap:

I pick Zeus - Can use lightning, can build hydras

I pick Athena as one of my sub-gods - I can use meteor shower and build Minotaurs.

Get it? (Mostly known/old facts, tiny bits of speculation included)
