Cults of the Wastelands Mini Expansion Pack
A new toggle exists on the options/create game screens that activates or deactivates the new Cults of the Wastelands content.
The first five new games started when the Cults of the Wasteland toggle is selected will offer a unique cult that attempts to accomplish a special cult agenda while active on the map.
After the first five games the option to selecte a specific or random cult is presented..
The player must eliminate the cult as well as the other AI players to win the game. Eliminating the cult results in a 100 point bonus to the player's score. If the all the AI players are eliminated and only the Cult remains, then each turn you will receive a base of 14 Action Points plus any modifiers you are currently owed. If you initiate a battle but do not delay the resolution until the end of the turn, the turn will finish and you will continue on to the next turn with a fresh 14 Action Point base plus modifiers.
