One civilization declines, another awakes!
With their God‘s blessings, each civilization experiences its own great flowering. The surrounding civilizations offer rich booty and the Gods support those who worship them and build great monuments to their glory.
In Pantheon, 8 ancient civilizations emerge, but not always the Romans after the Persians and the Egyptians before the Greeks.
Each civilization has its own unique characteristics and good players will use these to their best advantage.
