Dawn of Man[]

Great Vulkan who has been tested in the fiery furnace that is the planet Nocturne be ever blessed! The people of Nocturne show you their utmost respect to their lord. You have become prominent in the hostile environment of Nocturne, and it was you who united the people of Nocturne and forged the communal culture after defeating the Dark Eldar pirates with naught but two hammers. And you have proven not to found wanting in the eyes of the Emperor, even going against him toe to toe on the competition for leadership, although Emperor's show of mercy have further developed you into a benevolent leader who in turn fostered one of the most humanist and self-sacrificing culture in all of the Imperium of Man.

Merciful Vulkan, the toughened warriors of Nocturne are ready to follow you. They will wait for the return of the Emperor as you do, while they will work together with you to build a great nation here worthy for all residents. Will you build a great paradise on this world not covered by the grim darkness of eternal war? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?

Vulkan's Nocturne is a powerful civilization which is likely to be considered overpowered given the sheer scale and consistency of its bonuses. With that said, Vulkan's overarching themes are religion and production, although he also has some bonuses to culture and military as well. While Vulkan doesn't have an early enough of a religions bonus to consistently found a religion (without Civ IV Traits), Vulkan isn't hamstrung by this as adopting a religion in majority of his cities will also trigger the bonus. The production bonus from adherents to the religion will make Vulkan a mighty production power, while the experience bonus will also help him train stronger units if the city's tall enough to have enough adherents.

Since Vulkan's UA grants culture bonuses to Improvements and quite early at that, Vulkan can complete social policies faster, and when Hotels and Airports come into play, Vulkan can also prove to be a significant ideological powerhouse. However, his most consistent bonus is his unique building, the Promethean Cult, as it can be built anywhere and provides additional bonuses to quarries, mines and manufactories which already receive a buff thanks to his trait. All in all, Vulkan's flexible enough to try any sort of victory, although Vulkan's bonuses are most directly tied to Culture and Domination Victory.
