New powers call forth, from the barrel of muskets to flowers of fire in the sky. Even the quiet words on newly printed pages hold great changes within. The world, once so vast and mysterious, has grown smaller and more familiar. Yet, there are always questions to be answered, faiths to be tested, and national identities to be formed.
The Renaissance is really a groundbreaking Era! First and foremost, it opens up the world ocean for your exploration, allowing you to discover and claim for yourself new lands (if you're fast enough, that is); second, it enables the two more 'advanced' Tier 2 governments, allowing your civilization a qualitative jump in social and economical development; third, it unlocks the first Spy and the myriad possibilities that Espionage offers! But there's more: many new Great Person-oriented Cards are unlocked here, along with several key Tier 2 buildings for your districts. Military engineers develop to the last ancient city defenses, while their counterparts discover brand new weapons to break them down; Gunpowder starts invading the battlefield and completely altering the way combat is conducted. Naval engagements become much more interesting and unpredictable in the wide ocean, forcing commanders to be more careful when moving their ships. Culture-oriented players should start building Museums ASAP: this will bring them priceless Great Artist points, which will lead to Great Works of special importance in the Eras to come. But even they shouldn't pass up the opportunity to found new cities far from home - after all, it does matter how many Museums you have to house your Works.
When starting a game in the Renaissance Era, players receive two Settlers, two Scouts, one Crossbowman, 20 Faith, 250 Gold, and 5 Envoys. All cities founded after the Capital have 2 Population, a Monument, a Granary, and Ancient Walls, and players receive a Pikeman and a Builder in each city founded by one of their starting Settlers (and a Trader in the first one).
