Events is a new feature in the CIV 5 CBP that introduces specific situations in random turns, this events give the user the possibility to select a benefit for his civilization (like culture, technology points, population increase, military units, money or faith) but sometimes the events can be detrimental to your civ also.
Some of these events include:
- Comet pass-by (can give culture, faith, research)
- Meteor crashes (can give culture, research, 50% chance to get iron as a resource in a random tile or faith)
- Wanderers that want to settle in your area (can give population, military units, culture expansion,...)
- Corruption in a city has been detected and you need to calm the masses (lose food, happiness, gold or production)
