Time for another giveaway!!
This time we are shooting for a larger number then last time. I’m looking to get to 800 followers, so this one might take a while to actually complete! Let’s look at the prizes:
Prizes: 
1 Journey Into Nyx Fat Pack (Excuse the poorly drawn fat pack, they obviously aren’t being sold yet.)
1 Journey Into Nyx playmat of the winners choice (the god mats basically)
1 Extended Full art Zameck Guildmage promo
1 custom Marit Lage Token
Rules:
You must be following me.
You have to reblog this, and you may like it as well if you want (even though reblogging is what counts)
I’ll check my follower count every Friday at 8:00PM Eastern, and continue to check every friday until my follower count reaches or exceeds 800. The first check will be 4/25/2014.
Once the goal is met, I’ll use a web randomizer to pick a random reblogger, and contact them both through posting about it and message. You have 48 hours to reply back, or another winner will be chosen.
Good Luck!

Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.

To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:

Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?

Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.

And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!

On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.”

I about pissed myself laughing at this.
