The High Council is a team of advisors that provides in-game help and commentary in Civilization II and its expansions. They can be consulted at any time as long as the player has the CD in the drive.
There are five different advisors on the High Council:
- The Military Advisor (played by Brad Howard)
- The Science Advisor (played by Thomas Seibert)
- The Trade Advisor (played by Spencer Humm)
- The Foreign Advisor (played by April Cantor)
- The Attitude Advisor (played by Frank Wagner)
The advisors have different sets of priorities and will often argue with and insult each other. Their costumes change as the player advances through the eras. If consulted during anarchy, all of the advisors' windows will open simultaneously, and they will talk over each other and berate the player until the windows close and a large red "A" appears in place of each one.
