Earth Goddess is a Pantheon in Civilization VI. It adds 1 Faith Faith to all tiles owned by the player that have Charming or Breathtaking Appeal. In Gathering Storm, it was altered to add 1 Faith Faith to all tiles owned by the player that have Breathtaking Appeal only.


Earth Goddess is a helpful pantheon for civilizations that settle lots of cities near Woods, Mountains, or along the coast. It has strong synergy with the civ abilities of Brazil (whose Rainforests have higher Appeal than usual), the Inca (whose mountains are workable and always have Breathtaking Appeal), and the Māori (whose Woods will also provide bonus Production Production as long as they remain unimproved). Civilizations whose unique tile improvements provide Appeal bonuses can also benefit greatly from this pantheon by using their unique infrastructure to manipulate the Appeal of tiles (with Egypt's Sphinx in Gathering Storm being the best with a +2 Appeal bonus). Later in the game, building the Eiffel Tower will provide the founder of this pantheon with an empire-wide boost in Appeal (and in all likelihood, a corresponding boost in Faith Faith output).

While this pantheon is most useful to players pursuing a Religious Victory, Cultural Victory seekers can make use of the Faith Faith to patronize Great Person Great People or purchase Naturalists and Rock Bands. This is particularly pertinent to Bull Moose Teddy Roosevelt, a Cultural Victory master with a great incentive to work Breathtaking tiles and buy as many Naturalists as possible. He should choose this pantheon whenever possible.
