Here’s my idea for a Matrix inspired Yor quest
Triggers after you are at war with Terran for a number of turns and have successfully invaded a planet.
*A new citizen joins your empire.*
From the Yor perspective the One is a virus that must be crushed. But the One is a citizen in their empire and essentially a computer virus attempting to liberate an underground Terrain refuge.
The one could perform a number of disruptive effects on the planet if resources are not allocated to fighting against him, Such as
Giving a small economic penalty for number of turns
Weakening friendly ships defenses in range of the planet for number of turns
Taking production penalty for a number of turns
I envision three final outcomes
-The threat of The One is neutralized. Yor receive a large production and economic bonus on the world with The One.
-The One successfully liberates the world. The world turns into a human minor civ or reverts back to Terran player
-The effort to eradicate The One culminates in the complete destruction of the world.
I am in between PCs so can’t play the Alpha just yet. Without hands on experience it’s tough to tell how some of this might work in IV. Either way Love Kael’s work with FFH. can’t wait to play GCIV for years to come. I know this game is in good hands.
