this is what i think would be a greayt new feature to the xpack: Gifts from the Gods.

about those god gifts: this is what I thought they should look like: every god you worship( including major gods) give you a devine gift, which is related to them or the culture they belong to.

The Greeks: would get a object send from the gods. many greek gods and godesses were pictured with unique objects related to that god or goddess, like poseidon's trident or hephaistus' hammer. and so on. whenever you worship a minor god the object will be created at your temple for no costs. only heroes can wield it and use it's powers. every heroe can carry only one object. the objects have special powers ehich can be used once twice or more, depending. whenever used, the devine object would have to recharge at a temple to be used again.
the Egyptians: the Egyptians get special beasts. they can aid you in battle, economy etc. the animal is related to the worshipped god, and it helps the god with it's special task: Bast is the goddess of fertility and protection and villagers so she gets a friendly Tiger of Firtility that can aid you in hunting and brings his prey to your granary. set worshippers get 2 of each kind. they can also have special abilities such as Sekhmet's Lionness of Warfare, which can inflict serious damage to other units by hitting and stabbing eveery enmy it see's. heroes have no bonus damage to them and they respawn when killed in 2 minutes. they die permanently however when they have used all their special attck points. an example of an economy beat is the Shark of Protection, which protects your fishing boats with a grand bite and helps your food supplies by fishing at very quick rate. and so on.....

the Norse:
the Norse get special recources from their gods such as mithril or electrum. they can use these recources at their special devine blacksmith to create special weapons for their soldiers. you can use the recource only for 1 thing. for example: from thor you get mithril. when you build a devin blacksmith you can see an icon for the recource. when you click the recource you will see 3 options: improve pierce armor, improve hack armor, improve weapons. if you click IMPROVE PIERCE ARMOR you will see the icons of all your soldiers. you must then choose one and then it will be improved. so goes also for IMPROVE HACK ARMOR and IMPROVE WEAPONS.

so what about it.???????????? I can post more detailes if anyone is interested.

I have an idea for Hephatus' item. Since most items concern military maybe then Heph. should give you his hammer. A hero could hold it and be allowed to build any building. Not only that but than the hero will have a special (the hero will have two specials if he alredy has one) that gives the hero to have a huge boost of building speed it would only last for 2 seconds and takes a while to charge back up again. Think about which structure this would be kinda useful for *cough* wonders *cough*.

Ur right Flames. I went off a bit. weel what about this: the animals can only be summoned a few times by the pharaoh or something or at the temple. they cost a certain amount of favor and some other recource. or maybe their special attacks cost favor to use so you can still make use of the economy units all the time. a lot of favor anyway because of their strength. if you have any Ideas please Post them cos I'm trying to get this idea of mine even better. here are the other Beasts:

Bast: lionness of aiding. a hunting lion which can bring back it's prey to your granary of TC.
ability: powerfull hunt: strike down any animal in 1 blow and bring back to your granary or TC.

Anubis: crocodile of nercopolis: A CROCODILE WHICH LIVES IN THE WATERS BUT CAN ALSO BE USED ON LAND.
ability: bite: bites anything in it's way and drags it into the seas or throws it around.

Ptah: turtle of creation: a turtle unit which isn't ery strong on It's own.
ability: eggs of creation: lays down multiple eggs from which all sorts of different sea creatures appear and attack enemy units for some time. they aren't really strong on their own though.

Hathor: gazelles of eternity: a gazelle taht can produce offspring to help you gather food faster:
ability: slowly creates offspring which each carry 150 food.

Sekhmet: lion of warfare: a berserker lion that attacks anything that get's in it's way.
ability: smash anything it sees aroun doing pretty heavy damage.

Nephthys: scorpion of the dead: a scorpion that attack with claws and a poisonous fume.
ability: create a fow of poison on the battlefield causing all enemy units passing it to keep losing hp till they are completely dead.

Horus: Bird of vengenge: a large bird with great attack and the ability to fly away from battle.
ability:
grab a unit in it's claws and fly away and drops the unit into an enemy formation or buildig doing sreious area of effect damage.

Thoth: ibis of wisdom: a recource gathering ibis.
ability: gather at enourmous rate. it transports recources and unit's to locations.

Osiris: Basilisk. obviously a hufge snake with no real attack but 2 special abilities:
ability 1.: strangle a group of enemy units.

ability 2: paralize enemy unit's for a long time with it's eyes.

that it. Wanna know about the Norse part???????
please post any comment and critique my thoughts if you want.

@Flames: Can you speak Albanian? I know that my favorite actress has lineage from Albania (she was born in Boston, MASS.). I always like talking to people who were born in different countries, I don't get out much (I was born in good ol' Jersey on the East Coast of USA. Basically Jersey is the armpit of the East Coast. Oddly enough, polls say that we are some of the highest paid people in the country *shrugs*. Maybe they didn't include Florida )

First @ WTB
Yes I can speak Albanian. If you know how to speak Albanian
I wouls gladly speak it with you. But the AOMH staff only talk in English. AOMH staff can I at least say water in Albanian which is uji (pronounced oowee)
@Aomok
That isn't a stupid question. Its a reasonable question someone can ask. Your I deas are great! Oh here is something for the norse. I don't know which god should give it to you though: Horns of Teeth Bearer and Tooth Grinder (the goats that pulled Thor's chariot) It should only improve attack though.

No, unfortunately I can only speak Spanish and I can read Dutch and German (only a little though, they are very close in terms of languages). I have GOT to learn new languages (especially the swear words. That's the good part )

My grandmother knew how to swear in Arabic and Yiddish, but I can swear with the best of them in English (cockney British is the best! 'Bloody hell, sod off' and the like are my favorites!

I was just wondering because my favorite actress (Eliza Dushku--she's SOOO much better as Faith than Sarah Michelle Gellar is at Buffy) speaks the language. From what I have heard, it's an interesting language to speak.

Anyways, sorry for going Off-topic. You can hit me Mjollnir if you'd like
