    [1.01] Introduction
    
    Welcome to my 18th FAQ. I've some Civ 4 the base game, but haven't done 
    Warlords, which I will, sooner or later. Anyway, Beyond the Sword is the 
    second Expansion Pack for Civ 4, which I might add, is massive. It hads many
    things to Civ 4, which in itself, is wonderful. Read the reviews if you 
    want to know what happens. As for the game itself, it seems that this seems to
    cover everything from the Warlords expansion and as such, it makes that 
    worthless and this worthwhile. 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [1.02] Version History
    
    Version 0.1 [27/7/07]

    More random events.

    More random events, with 100% more goodiness.
    
    Version 0.4 [31/7/07]
    Even more random events. There are too many of them. Just when you do one, 
    pop comes out some more. 
    
    Version 0.5 [2/8/07]
    Have to finish random events first. This is going to be a long time.
    
    Version 0.6 [21/8/07]
    Must update more random events when I can. 
    
    Version 0.7 [22/8/07]
    Update on random events. About halfway there. 
    
    Version 0.8 [23/8/07]
    More than halfway done on random events. This is taking a long time. 
    
    Version 0.9 [24/8/07]
    Two thirds of the way there. Only Quests remain
    
    Version 1.0 [29/8/07]
    This should be the end of these pesky random events. All gone.
    
    Version 1.1 [4/9/07]
    Expanded the Table of Contents to reveal all the work to be done. Chapter 2 is
    already one, Chapter 3 is complete. Chapter 5, 6 and 7 also complete. 
    Chapter 4, 8, 9, 10 and 11 needs work done. 
    
    Version 1.2 [5/9/07]
    APEC tomorrow. Anyway, Chapter 4 is complete first.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [2.01] Random Events
    
    Random Events are arguable the most expansive addition in Beyond the Sword,
    and besides the Corporations, one of the reason why I bought it. They can
    occur at any time, at any point in your game. They can be good, some can be
    bad and some can be a bit strange. There is over 1 Mb and a half of text
    that I had to sift through to bring these events to you, so be at least 
    grateful. For the events to happen, you must have the "No Random Events" not
    enabled to allow for the events to occur. 
    
    Not all events will occur in one game. Some will appear, some won't. Below,
    I will list everything, the options and what happens. There are several types
    of events that I have seperated. Quests are missions you have to do. 
    Civilization Events effect your entire empire, City events effect one 
    specific city, Tile events effect a production tile, Unit events effect your
    units and Foreign Events are events that have an effect overseas.
    
    Here is how it goes. The symbols you have to be aware for. 
    
    [Civ Adjective]           = Adjective for your nation. For example, America
                                will be American, China will be Chinese, etc.
    
    [Civ City]                = A city under your control. 
    
    [Civ City Building]       = A building inside one of your cities.
    
    [Civ Corporation]         = A corporation under your control.
    
    [Civ Unit]                = A Unit under your command.
    
    [Civ Religion]            = A religion worshipped in your Empire
    
    [Civ Religion Adjective]  = The Adjective for a religion. For example, Islam
                                will be Islamic, Buddhism will be Buddhist.
    
    [Civ Wonder]              = A Wonder
    
    [Other Civ]               = Another Civilisation
    
    [Other Civ Adjective]     = The Adjective of another Civilisation's empire.
    
    [Other Civ City]          = Another Civilisation's City
    
    [Another Civ]             = A third Civ
    
    [Tile Improvement]        = A tile improvement
    
    [Tile Resource]           = A bonus on a tile
    
    X                         = A defined number
    
    Y                         = Another defined number

    [2.02] Quests

    *THE BLESSED SEA*
    *****************
    
    --==Scenario==--
    
    "Our spiritual leaders are urging us to seek the blessings of the sea! The
     wise masters have divined the way regarding our relationship with the sea.
     They urge us to embrace the sea, to broaden our influence over it and spread
     our traditions to new lands."
    
    --==Quest Help==--
    
    "The Blessed Sea. You are tasked by your religious leaders to found cities
     on new landmasses. If you can build enough cities on new landmasses you will
     please the masters, who will offer you a choice of rewards."
    
    "To complete this quest, you must establish or capture cities on X total 
     landmasses of any size, from one-plot islands to massive continents. All
     landmasses where you have at least one city are counted. Note that additional
     cities on the same island or continent do not help in this quest. The goal
     is to establish your presence on a number of different landmasses and 
     thereby prove your mastery over the waters. You will fail this quest if you
     change state religions, cease to have a state religion or reach Industrialism
     without having met the conditions."
    
    --==Mechanics==--
    
    Chance of Event in Game = 85%
    Required                = Galley, Caravel or Galleon unit
                              Buddhism, Confucianism or Taoism religion
                              One of the Three is a State Religion

    --==Options==--
    
    "Establish your religion in a number of your cities."
    
    "Receive a Temple Improvement in all cities with five population or more, 
     where your State Religion is present."
    
    "Receive a Great Prophet."
    
    --==Results==--
    
    Option 1 - "Establish your religion in a number of your cities."
    
    Result = Convert up to 20 of your cities
    
    Option 2 - "Receive a Temple Improvement in all cities with five population
                or more, where your State Religion is present."
    
    Result = Temples in all cities with 5+ Population with State religion
    
    Option 3 - "Receive a Great Prophet."
    
    Result = You receive a Great Prophet
    
    --==Failure==--
    
    "You have failed the quest of The Blessed Sea."
    
    --==Appears in Events==--
    
    [Civ Religion Adjective] leaders have bestowed grand rewards upon the 
    [Civ Adjective] people for completing the Quest of The Blessed Sea!"
    
    
    ***************
    *HOLY MOUNTAIN*
    ***************
    
    --==Scenario==--
    
    "Our religious leaders believe our people can earn the blessings of the deity
     if we can reclaim the Holy Mountain! They have studied the scriptures with
     an eye towards locating the holy mountain. They have so far not found it
     anywhere within our lands and believe that it must lie elsewhere. More study
     will be needed if we are to identify the sacred location."
    
    --==Quest Help==--
    
    "The Holy Mountain. You are tasked by your religious leaders to locate, settle
     near and seize control over the Holy Mountain."
    
    "To complete this quest, you must extend your cultural influence and control
     over the Peak plot that is the Holy Mountain. You may achieve this by
     Divine Providence by settling near any Peaks you find. Eventually you may
     find the right one. Or you may seek further guidance from studying the holy
     scriptures. If you build X religious buildings (Temples and Monasteries), 
     your religious leaders will solve the puzzle and identify the correct 
     location of the Holy Mountain, which you must then still go and settle near 
     to complete the quest. A [Christian Cathedral, Jewish Synagogue or Islamic
     Mosque] allows for more co-ordinated worship and is worth as much as four
     Temples for the purposes of this quest. You will fail this quest if you 
     change state religions, cease to have a state religion, or reach
     Industrialism without having met the conditions. You will also fail this
     quest if any other civilisation takes control of the Holy Mountain before you
     do."

    This allows the player to begin the Civilsation Game with the Civ more 
    advanced than usual. This option allows with a portion of the map already 
    visible and an extra amount of gold to burn. You can use the already given
    gold to purchase units for your nation, buildings for your cities, improvement
    for the land or technologies that you don't possess. The difficulty will 
    determine the amount of gold that you are given. 
    
    You cannot however, attack the enemy for 10 turns and when the game starts,
    you will have to start to pay maintenance for the items that you have gained.

    [3.05] Special Buildings
    
    Introduced in the Warlords expansion pack are special buildings that can only
    be built by specific Civilisations in replacement of your standard buildings
    that any can build. Therefore, it provides a slight twist in playing a certain
    civilisation over another as these buildings can make a city happy or healthy
    or even the other way around. I will only cover the 10 new special buildings
    as I will cover the others in my upcoming, if possible, Warlords guide.

    [4.01] Basics
    
    Corporations are basically a different source of religion. These are massive
    companies that are headquartered in a city and has many branches in the other
    cities all over the world. They provide a large source of commerce and gold
    but drains in maintenance.
    
    Corporations are founded by researching the Corporation technology as well as
    another technology. With adquate access to certain resources, a Great Person
    can establish a Corporation in that city. The secondary technology and the
    Great Person will vary from company to company however.
    
    Once it is founded, the corporation will require maintenance from your 
    Government to keep it functional, to pay the wages as it were. In return 
    however, they provide a bonus such as gold, culture, research, food or even
    different resources. The owner of the Corporation will receive money for each
    branch of that company operating. 
    
    Similar to religion, Corporations are spread with Executives in place of the
    Missionaries. It will cost money to expand into other cities as well as 
    maintenance to keep the branch running, however, you will receive money for
    that branch as well as providing bonuses to that city as well. Bear in mind
    however, that some companies will compete with others and two competing 
    companies cannot be in the same city. 
    
    If you do not wish to have Corporations in your land, enabling the State
    Property will render all Corporations in your land useless. The Mercantilism 
    Civic will block any new corporations from entering your civilisation. There
    are 7 companies, each with different abilities.
    
    All Headquarters in their cities will generate +2 Culture and +1 Great Person
    Point every turn.

    [4.02] Aluminum Co.
    
    "Despite being the most abundant metal on Earth, aluminum in its purest form
     was exceedingly rare until the nineteenth century, with a price-per-pound
     comparable to that of pure silver. The development of the Hall-Heroult 
     process in 1886, by which pure aluminum is drawn out of common bauxite ore,
     made aluminum cheap and readily available. Harnessing his invention, Charles
     Martin Hall created the Pittsburgh Reduction Company, which would grow into 
     the largest provider of aluminum in the world, with its product included in
     everything from soda cans to spaceships."

    [4.03] Cereal Mills
    
    "While most food processing corporations are less than 150 years old, food
     processing is an ancient tradition. The miller was the original food 
     processing entrepreneur, turning inedible wheat into versatile flour, all
     while pulling in a tidy profit. Understandably, many modern food processing
     companies rose from the milling industry, often picking up a few new 
     subsidiaries along the way. Today's food processors deal in a diverse range
     of consumer products, lining the walls of the local supermarket with 
     everything from mayonnaise to deodorant."

    [4.04] Civilized Jewelers
    
    "Humanity's fascination with shiny objects has persisted since time 
     immemorial. Gold, silver and jewels have decorated the heads of monarchs and
     the interior of palaces for millennia, but it was the nineteenth century that
     began the true blossoming of the trade of treasures. Gold rushes throughout
     the world - in the United States, Canada and Australia - not only created 
     new fonts of wealth, but left a lasting impression on the shape of world
     population, relocating avaricious prospectors to some of the most remote 
     places on earth. The Gem Trade, with diamonds as its crown, grew up around
     similar circumstances. Throngs of miners flocked to South Africa in the
     mid-nineteenth century with the discovery of the "Star of Africa", an 
     enormous 83.5 carat diamond. As of the turn of the twentieth century, the 
     age of the traveling prospector bowed before the growth of enormous precious
     metal and jewel firms. South Africa remains one of the most important sources
     for gold and diamonds in the world, as well as the birth place to some of the
     most influential corporations in the business."

    [4.05] Creative Constructions
    
    "The Great Pyramids, the Hagia Sophia and the Hoover Dam all started their
     famed existance in the same way - with a pile of stones and an ambitious
     engineer. In the past, grand projects were taken on by princes or heads of
     state, but today these works are built by corporations. Often employing both
     an architech and a construction team, modern construction companies both 
     dream up and execute the shaping of a piece of land into a new edifice. 
     Beyond simply erecting the building, it often falls upon the construction 
     company to reign in the wild designs of upstart architects like Frank Lloyd
     Wright and Antoni Gaudi to ensure the completion of their works. Perhaps if a
     construction executive had been present during the designing of Gaudi's 
     Sagrada Familia, it would already be complete and accepting donations for
     renovations."

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [4.06] Mining Inc
    
    "For much of human history, victory has gone to those with access to the 
     finest metals. From the Bronze Age onwards, metal tools, weapons and alloys
     have been an inherent part of the rise of civilization, spurring conquests
     and construction by the world's greatest empires. And while metal mining has
     had an impressive history, it was not until the nineteenth century that
     industrial mining truly began to take root. The reasons explain this sudden
     intensification in mining operations. The first was the almost daily 
     revolutions in the production of tools and consumer items, requiring a 
     continual source of metal to produce them. The second was that the fuel that
     powered the Industrial Revolution was coal, nestled deep within the earth.
     In modern times, enormous excavators like the Bagger 288 have it possible to
     mine a pit three-hundred feet long and one-hundred feet deep in a day, a 
     feat that, in the past, would have required the mobilization of nations."

    [4.07] Sid's Sushi Co.
    
    "Sushi is an ancient form of food preservation that originated in Southeast
     Asia in the fourth century BC. This technique of wrapping fish in vinegar-
     soaked rice spread through out Asia, making its way to China in the
     thirteenth century and later to Japan. In Japan, the dish became extremely
     popular in the early nineteenth century, when a sushi stall owner in Edo
     began placing bits of extremely fresh and even raw fish within or atop the
     classic bed of vinegar rice. It was here that modern sushi was born. Sushi
     has since become Japan's signature dish, and from the 1980s onward has 
     become a popular delicacy throughout the world."

    [4.08] Standard Ethanol
    
    "As an energy source, few things can compare to fossil fuels. Yet, like most
     resources, the limited nature of fossil fuels has made an alternative energy
     source a necessary compliment to the world's power supply. Ethanol, which can
     be created from corn, beets and sweet potatoes, has become one of the leading
     candidates to wean customers from their daily gasoline fix. Used as a fuel
     additive or a fuel itself, ethanol's renewable nature, as well as the 
     increased availability of ethanol-powered vehicles, has made it the most 
     widely used gasoline alternative in the world. But with an ever-increasing
     world population the use of fields to produce fuel instead of food has made
     the full-blown adoption of biofuels a difficult choice for those in positions
     of power."

    [10.01] Basics
    
    This is the newest addition to Beyond the Sword and makes the Spy unit very,
    very useful. The Espionage system allows you to sabotage your rivals by
    destroying their tile improvements, poisoning the water of their cities and
    other dirty deeds. Of course, your enemy can do this to you as well so be 
    weary of this. Of course, no Spy Agency will be complete without 
    counter-espionage to stop the attempts of enemy spies. 
    
    However, to do this, one must generate Espionage Points so that your spies can
    complete their missions. This is done from diverting commerce from Research,
    Culture and Gold towards the new option of Espionage. When you have enough
    Episonage Points, you can move your Spy on the target and perform the action
    that will be necessary to cary out your orders. 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [10.02] Espionage Points
    
    These points are necessary to carry out missions. Several buildings allow you
    to generate points but the bulk of the points will generally come out of the
    Commerce total. Once you have discovered the Writing Tech, you will have the
    slider to adjust how much you spend on Espionage Points. 
    
    On the Espionage Screen, you can see the statistics for all encountered 
    civilisations and how many points you have invested in each. You can change 
    the weight of each rival. The weighting basically means the amount of points
    that you are using to investigate the enemy. The higher the weighting, the 
    more points you are devoting to that enemy at the cost of investing points 
    into other rivals. This is important as this will influence the cost. 
    Originally, the cost of performing a mission will be at 100%. It it is higher
    than 100%, that means that the rival has invested more points in your and 
    therefore, is more prepared against you and you will have to pay more in terms
    of Espionage Points to carry out the same mission. This also works in reverse
    when the cost is less than 100%. This means you have invested more points 
    than your rival has invested in you and therefore you can perform all missions
    at a lower cost. 
    
    By clicking on a rival, you can see all the cities that you have discovered.
    This, when clicked upon, allows you to see the available missions that your
    spies can perform upon it and the cost that is required. The more points 
    needed, generally speaking, the riskier and more damaging it is. 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [10.03] Missions
    
    There are many missions that your Spies can undertake. Some are passive while
    the rest are active. Active requires you to move a spy over a specific tile
    in order to perform the mission while passive missions are done when you have
    accumulated enough Espionage Points against them. The Active Missions are:
    
    Sabotage Improvement     - This destroys an enemy tile improvement such as a 
                               farm or a route improvement such as a road.
    
    Sabotage Building        - This will destroy a building that has built inside
                               an enemy city.
    
    Steal Treasury           - This will let your spy steal gold ranging from 
                               10 to 100% of the treasury.
    
    Spread Culture           - This will increase the amount of culture in the  
                               city.
    
    Poison Water             - For a short period of time, the city is more
                               unhealthy due to poisoned water.
    
    Foment Unhappiness       - For a short period of time, the city is more
                               unhappy.
    
    Support City Revolt      - Sends a city into revolt mode for a turn, reducing
                               city defences in the time-being.
    
    Steal Technology         - This steals a technology that you do not have from
                               your opponent.
    
    Influence Civics         - This will change the opponent's civics to the ones
                               that you have adopted.
    
    Influence Religion       - This changes the opponent's state religion to the
                               same one as yours.
    
    Perform Counterespionage - The Enemy Espionage Mission Costs are doubled for
                               10 turns. 
    
    The Passive Missions are:
    
    Can See Demographics     - Allows you to see the enemy's information on the 
                               Info Screen.
    
    Can See Research         - Allows you to see what the enemy is researching
                               currently and the turns needed for completion.
    
    City Visibility          - The enemy cities are now visible on your map.
    
    Investigate City         - You can see the info screen for the cities by 
                               double clicking on them as if they were yours,
    
    Spies Cannot Enter Our
    Borders                  - Spies from civilisations that you have amassed
                               enough points against cannot enter your nation. 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [10.04] Spies
    
    Spies are units that can be built by Civilisations provided you have 
    researched the Writing Technology. Spies are useful for scouting as they can
    enter enemy territory without having to declare war as well as starting with
    the Commando upgrade, allowing you to use the enemy's roads and railroads.
    
    The spy can perform missions while it is on a specific tile and the longer it
    is on the tile, the cheaper the missions will be overall. They cannot be 
    killed by conventional means, rather, they are seeked out by enemy spies and
    can be killed by them. Once spotted, they cannot perform any more missions.
    
    Spies can also be specialists, however, they are produced like a specialist in
    a city. This provides you with more Espionage Points as well as increasing the
    chances of a Great Spy appearing in that city. 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [10.05] Great Spies
    
    Great Spies are among the Great People such as the Scientists and so forth.
    They are invaluable scouting units as they are invisible to all units, even
    enemy spies and other Great Spies. If you manage to sneak a spy into the 
    enemy and onto their cities, you will receive an Espionage Point bonus of 
    about 3000 Points.
    
    They can also join cities as Super Specialists and can also construct the
    Scotland Yard national wonder, even if you have not meant the requirements
    for normal construction. It will provide a boost to Espionage Point 
    production. 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [11.01] Air Unit Promotions
    
    Air Units now can be assigned to Intercept and will attack enemy aircraft on
    sight. With air combat, the fight continues until one unit is destroyed or 
    withdraws from the fight. They can also defend against several attacks every
    round, similar to ground units.
    
    There are also changes to air unit promotions. They are now able to gain the
    Combat, Pinch and the Ambush Promotions, similar to the Land Units. They also
    have 3 new promotions.
    
    Interception - Increases the chance of intercepting the enemy aircraft. SAM
                   infantry, Mobile SAM and Mechanised Infantry can also receive
                   this promotion.
    
    Range - Increases the Air Unit's range.
    
    Ace - Increaes the Unit's evasion chance when engaged.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [11.02] Overseas Maintenance and Colonies
    
    Overseas Maintenance is a new form of maintenance where the city is on a 
    different continent from the Capital. When the amount of cities on that 
    specific continent reach a certain number, maintenance will begin to outweigh
    the commerce gained from Production. 
    
    The only method to prevent this is to allow it to be a colony. When there are
    two or more cities on the overseas continent, they can be colonies which 
    allows the cities to break off into their own Civilisations while being a 
    vassal state to you. This however, provides distinct economic, diplomatic
    and military problems for you. 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [11.03] Siege Combat
    
    Siege units can now only damage units up to a certain limit. Therefore, the
    units can attack to the limit, no more, but less depending on the health of
    the unit. Defending Siege units however, can still destroy the forces of the
    attackers.
    
    Also, several units such as the Gunship have the Flank Attack against Siege
    units. This is when a stack of Siege Units are together and provided the unit
    survives, every Siege unit is damaged to some extent. 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [11.04] Naval Trade Routes
    
    Naval units can now be sent to blockage enemy ports, denying them of valuable
    commerce and gold for their Civilisation. Naval units can even plunder the 
    trade units of the enemy, making control of the seas invaluable.
    
    Also, for naval trade routes along rivers, the Sailing Technology must be 
    researched beforehand.

    Yoi Di Tjih Ni Cvilztin Flr?" Don't be too formal, a question is not a freakin
    business agreement so don't say "Dear Sir, In accordance to your Walkthrough
    to the PC Game, Civ IV, ..." it makes me wonder if I'm talking to a freak
    the President of the United States of America or Bill Gates or Donald Trump.
    
    I will credit you if your send me information about this game that is not in
    the FAQ. I will also be grateful if you see this FAQ somewhere else other than
    Gamefaqs or a site which has my permission. If you do, tell me so I can kick
    their ass to Pluto and make them bounce off to the other side of the Universe.
    
    I will not respond to:
    
    * Spam
    * Bill Gate's Spam (He gets spam of up to 4 million per day)
    * Something not related with this
    * Something already covered
    * Illegal stuff, like CD-Keys and Pirated Versions
    * Technical Problems
    
    Technical Problems will not be answered as they should be sent to Firaxis not 
    me. I didn't design the game so I shouldn't know what's wrong with it, its 
    your game not MINE.
