Fabulous Gemland led by Pink Taric is a custom civilization created by Mathetes tou Megalou Alexandrou.

Overview

Dawn of Man

May the glory of consensual homosexuality ever shine inside you! You are Pink Taric, ruler of fabulous Gemland. Gemland is among the most artistic of nations, as well as a financial powerhouse thanks to its venerable gem industry. Gemland's gemcutters are the envy of others, crafting elegant pieces of craft that command not only high prices but are pieces of fine arts as well.

Now, Pink Taric, the time has come to let the glory of Gemland shine upon the land once more. Spread the art of Gemland throughout the land and bring the gays everlasting glory. Can you build a civilization that will last the test of time?

Strategy

Taric's Gemland is both a mercantile and a cultural powerhouse, having strong early bonuses to Gold and Culture with a Golden Age flavor. Taric's main early game bonus is the Jewelry Crafter, which is a much more accessible than the standard Mint. Not only that, the Jewelry Crafter provides meaningful bonuses towards CultureIcon.png culture and Gold.png gold, while also yielding a unique luxury resource that Taric may use to play diplomatically. The Jewelry Crafter also generates additional bonuses ranging from Tourism to bonus culture on all luxury resources that benefits from the Jewelry Crafter already if its unique specialist slot is worked in a Golden Age, which is lengthened every time Taric spawns a Great Artist, Musician or Writer.

As Taric transitions into the mid-game, his unique Gem Knights becomes his primary bonus, as the Gem Knights are inherently not only stronger, but gains a random but additional utility promotion useful both in combat and in administration, although quite situational and almost impossible to optimize. Here Taric could make a choice to push with the powerful Gem Knights, or stick to the lands he has, focusing on the cultural Great People to lengthen the late-game Goldenage.png Golden Ages which is particularly important in a Cultural Victory as it is the primary source of his Tourism.png outside the normal means.

Taric can go any ideology, although Taric is usually best paired with Order. On the other hand, Taric can aim for any victory conditions, although Taric is best suited to either a Cultural Victory or a Diplomatic Victory.
