    Proposed Age 72 Changes

    The proposed changes for the upcoming age are fairly ambitious. Here I'll strive to cover what we're looking at on the gameplay side of the house; there might be other things that are not covered.

    Overall themes for the gameplay changes -- more to do outside of war, reduce the effectiveness and possibility of 'cow' provinces, aiming to make 'hybrid' strategies more viable and reduce gain manipulation techniques. There are some potentially major shakeups relative to the accessibility of some spells and operations.

    Mechanics
    SOT change - we are considering adding a 'last seen' line to SOTs that will show most recent activity in addition to displaying information related to any active Kingdom Ritual
    Scientists - generated on a flat ratio similar to wizards instead of via RNG.
    Explore pool - remove kingdomwide explorepool and replace it with province level exploration pools.
    Paradise - will no longer consume explore pool, will be available only to Mystic or Rogue personality (Not Faery)
    Gains - Replace Networth Based Gains (NWBG) with a hybrid Land Based Gains (LBG) system that incorporates NW
    Networth Protection - Significantly reduced for spells and sabotage operations.
    Op success rate - Success rates made significantly easier to achieve
    OOW honor gains - Significantly reduced.
    WW Chart Chains - In order to incentivize conflict between top WW kingdoms, we have altered the formula to provide additional WW points (scaling from the current if the kingdom you war is outside of the top 50 for land, honor, NW, and warwins) to double the current points.
    WW Bonus - Additionally, we are adding a new set of WW bonuses. Kingdoms will receive recognition on their kingdompage based on the number of WW points they achieve. Each additional 'tier' that they obtain will also increase their WW bonus -- land, honor, credits, etc -- by 10%. This is capped at a WW bonus that is 50% larger than the baseline bonus.
    Finally the WW bonus will scale with kingdom size under 20 provinces to reduce the potential for abuse with kingdoms that remain intentionally small in the number of provinces.
    The War Win bonus will also include a provision of additional land to every province's individual explore pool in both kingdoms, this is mainly aimed at helping provinces that are destroyed in war to have a chance to grow back to a functional size.
    WAR - Exploration during End Of War Cease-Fire will have no increased cost penalties.
    Several New Spells dedicated to the Paladin Personality Only:
    We would like to continue taking suggestions for more self spells that would be Paladin Only. Please use this thread to make suggestions, or comment on these as proposed.

    New batch of possible changes. Based on the feedback, we've decided to keep Avians and Humans, along with Treants, but we're pushing the Siren race idea into a Paladin personality. We've updated the OP with that and some other tweaks. More feedback is appreciated
