Pantheons Edit

Pantheons provide basic bonuses for cities, usually based on terrain, resources, or buildings. You may found a Pantheon once you've accumulate 50 20xFaith Faith.

Note that if a bonus applies to a particular resource (Gold, Wine, etc.), the bonus will work regardless of whether the resource is improved or not. On the other hand, bonuses applying to particular improvements (Plantation, Pasture, etc.) will work as long as the improvement is not pillaged. Terrain bonuses always apply as long as you don't change the terrain - for example, by cutting down the jungle in a tile.
