Theology will probably be in the game in some way, shape, or form.
How exactly, is a subject I’d like to expand upon.

Will theology give Sapiens some physical of advantage, like better hunting skill, et cetera (civilization 6 style)?
Possibly, but I suggest not.

I suggest it gives psychological advantages to your Sapiens, for example;
-Being more willing and getting more enjoyment out of certain actions (for axample fishing).
-How Sapiens choose their partners, wich sex plays what role, and what traits are considered attractive.
-Wether your Sapiens are monogamous, or polygamous, or if their social system is closer to communism or capitalism.
-How much they dislike intimidating, or humbling themselves in front of other tribes.
-Offering things will increase happiness.
Or perhaps you can think of entirely different ways it can affect their behaviour.

And how should gods tie into these preferences exactly?

Do you really think theology will be part of the game? I wonder.

Hm. Would theology in a game like this ostracize some players, I wonder? I suppose if it were an entirely made up religion, no one could take offense.

This will be interesting to see if Dave plans on integrating such a thing into Sapiens.


I do definately 100% agree that all religion and theology must be made up, otherwise people can, and probably will, get offended.
Why I am so confident that theology will be added, is because it was such an important aspect of life, in the days that the game is set, and perhaps today. Now, I don’t claim to think it will be anything like so complicated and prominent as I suggested it, but I definately do think it should be added in some way, shape, or form. I am of opinion that if it was done as conveluted as I put it, it would add and improve to the game.

I really like your idea and I’ve never seen a game use theology so realistically. That might be because I don’t know all the games though.
I hope you don’t mind if I copy your comment into one of my word documents for my future world building ideas.

edit: I just found out why you came up with that idea. You liked my comment on communism.

I did indeed read your thread on communism and capitalism, but I only thought on that after having while typing the thread :slight_smile:

And I don’t mind you noting this down. I’ll take it as an honour :slight_smile:
