Adastra led by Amicus is a custom fictional civilization mod by SharkyMcSnarkface. It is based upon the visual novel Adastra.

This mod requires Brave New World



Adastra is a planet inhabited by a race of sapient wolves, uplifted by mysterious beings only known as the Parents. It was through their guidance and technological gifts that turned them into the advanced space-faring civilization they are. Compared to the other Siblings, those of equal technological understanding, they are described as much rougher and warlike. Their Children, the races they have uplifted, are also stunted purposefully for the benefit of the Wolves. Much to the dismay of the Siblings.


Amicus was the heir to the throne of Adastra along with his sibling, Cassius. His ascension to the throne came about after the failed coup by Cato, previously his mentor and late father's friend. He was helped along the way by his sister Virginia, his rather close friend Neferu, and his lover, canonically named Marco. He has shown himself to be very passionate, not one to take half-measures in his actions. Until his ascension to the throne, he has closeted his sexuality to himself in fear of public backlash, as it would not look good for an heir to the throne to be a "tail-raiser" (If you would excuse the homophobic slur).

Dawn of Man[]


"Ave, true to Amicus! Under your gentle hand, you have turned Adastra from a shunned Sibling race back into the fold among equals. Through the troubles of succession to the Adastran throne, you have proven yourselve stalwart in the name of Adastra, and most importantly of all, your lover. What you may lack in more traditional skills expected of an Emperor, your heart has proven itself wiser than any corrupt mind.

The people of Adastra call for your leadership. Lead on, and bring the Wolves to greatness! Stay true to your heart, and Adastra will prosper above all, whatever path you choose. To the stars, and beyond! Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Ave!"

Introduction: "Welcome to Adastra. I may call you stranger for now, but you may call me friend."

Defeat: "To the stars, no more. I failed you, Marco..."

Defeat: "Is this how Adastra had to pay for its sins? Did we deserve this much?"

Icon Religion Civs
Parentalism Adastra



Adastra is a very versatile but science-aligned civilization. Their unique ability allows them to take a more controlled approach to victory at the cost of passive great people generation. Their Scholar-Emissaries allow Adastra to spread their influence across the planet, either in the form of their culture in major civs or their diplomacy in city-states. Scholar-Emissaries also provide a small science boost when expended in any way. They effectively allow Adastra to turn production into science, tourism or influence. The Parental Archive is simply a must for Adastra, as the science boost will help the era go along faster, and thus, churn out your free great people faster! It would also be wise to build the Parental Archive in the most populous city of the empire to take advantage of the bonus to tile yields. Their free autonomous drones allows Adastra a good early start, but be sure to defend them well as you only get a limited quantity. Once they are lost, they're lost forever. The most obvious victory path for Adastra would be a science victory given their Parental Archive and Scholar-Emissaries. But that being said, Adastra can comfortably pursue any victory condition; the way they choose paved by their pairs of great people every era.
