The leaders of Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
Release date: October 21, 2016

Dammit, they’re cartoonish. Lame

Also there’s two Greeks?

it was clear that there would be multiple leaders per civ (if only with expansions) as soon as there were seperate civilization and leader bonuses

obviously the cartoon aesthetic is a matter of taste but I think it’s far from a bad choice for the game – cartoony faces can convey distinct emotions very radpidly (which is their only real function) and civ was kind of always the EPCOT center of historical games anyway so it’s not like it’s breaking ~immersion~ anymore than everything else going on. (elsewhere they also talked about how a more cartoony map aesthetic worked with unstacked cities, so there’s also consistency.)

All I want to do is use the Fog of War overlay to create great maps for D&D,
