The Third Reich led by Wilhelm Strasse is a custom civilization by Mathetes tou Megalou Aleaxndrou, based on the Wolfenstein reboot (specifically The New Order).


Dawn of Man[]

The superior Aryan race hails you, great scientist and architect of the New Order Wilhelm Strasse! You were instrumental in bringing the Great German Empire to its righteous position as the supreme power on the Earth. While the technological secrets you've unearthed were not of your own efforts but fruits of the JUDEN of ot the Da'at Yichud, better the technology be in the hands of our noble race rather than in the hands of the inferiors. While you've fallen fighting against the slaughterer of Nazis, that infamous B.J. Blazkowicz, your legacy lives on and our Nazi Germany continues to rule over Europe as its hegemon.

O Strasse the harbinger, the Aryan race is once again ready to struggle to prove itself as the master race of this world. Will you lead the Aryan race to further evolution through war and science? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?

Wilhelm Strasse's Third Reich is a powerful science/production civilization whose bonuses are maximized in war. Strasse may not have the strongest early game and thus won't be the strongest opponent, but the Third Reich will start gaining steam as specialists come into play. Because Third Reich doesn't particularly have a tactical advantage in the early-midgame, the Third Reich's strategy would have to involve strictly using numbers and science advantages from generating Great Generals to keep the Third Reich afloat in a total war scenario. Having even a single opponent triggers this bonus, meaning that the Third Reich is rewarded for going to war and even more so for actually fighting since generating Great Generals aid in science and is the only early Science bonus Strasse has asides from the Civ IV Trait if enabled. Having a great amount of land to extract artifacts from is important, as the Unique building's bonus is maximized by having artifacts.

Given that the Third Reich is more economic than military in terms of its bonuses, Third Reich may instead choose to pursue a peaceful strategy, giving up on some of the trait bonuses and instead maximize the Relic Lab bonuses by going tall, settling for a few cities to fill the artifact slots and use that for a Science victory instead. Should the Third Reich pursue a more traditional conquest strategy, it'd benefit handsomely from either Order or Autocracy, whereas a more peaceful science victory would make the Third Reich look towards Freedom instead, although Order will also work just as well.
