Nagas Zaps one worker of the Dipnoi with the ability to design mud-brick structures far greater than the petty laws of physics would ordinarily allow (and not have them collapse into a heap of dirt), for 3FP, and then places one tropical beach at A5.
Just trying to wrap my head around this.

Are you trying to make a worker who makes buildings that are better than normal?  I think that would cost a lot more than 3 FP.  I'm also not sure how I would implement that in game...
Well, ordinarily, mud building would be very limited in how much you can actually build, especially in the structure height. So I figured I'd try granting them the ability to build things that would not ordinarily be possible to build from mud. Like a mud tower of babel. Does that sound like a thing I can do?

I would recommend giving players at least a 24 hour notice before kicking them, as not every persons schedule allows them to access the internet in less than 24 hours. Especially god players who may have just been waiting for FP. That being said, I would give them one additional turn before kicking them this time.
I'm pretty sure the Mefolk have lost interest and will be removed this turn.  I'll give Malvol one more turn since it's possible he might have assumed that gods can go inactive for as long as they want, like in your game.

This saddens me, but oh well. guess there's be some treasure at the bottom of the sea for people to go find now.

Normally before you can build something you can't normally build -- such as a Tower of Babel -- you would have to research something first.  What you are describing is a worker who pretty much ignores tech and builds whatever he wants.  I think this might cost an impossible amount of FP...

Or are you trying to make a worker who can make buildings out of mud that can't normally be made of mud?  So far, the Dipnoi haven't encountered any building that can't be made of mud.  So that worker might be useless...

Yes. That. And yes, it's not something I expected to be useful right now. Not until they discover some larger buildings. I just thought it would be interesting to have around for later.

Ok, I'll allow that for 3 FP.

So, two workers worshipping Nagas got zero FP in return? Am I missing something important here?

Science is always important. But it needs more flaming cats. Can't we build bridge-based catapults and fling flaming cats at the dust and goo?

It's time for the ATHATH Death Counter to increase once more in celebration for the end of the world.

It gives Nagas 1 FP per worship. the workers get nothing in return.

the map doesn't show the monastary's position as a settlement.

Nagas had 4 FP on turn 21.  He spent 3 but gained 1+8 on turn 22 for a total gain of 6.  6+4=10 FP.

the map doesn't show the monastary's position as a settlement.

That's because it's hidden.

Actually, it's because I keep forgetting to draw it in.

Thanks! Missed it because FP gains from worship were not mentioned in my turn.
