What you see above is, according to where I got the picture, an "Undead Elf Pirate". In AGE OF GODS, you get to exterminate, via religious genocide, all three of these races. And what just, caring god would allow such a thing like an "Undead Elf Pirate" to exist in the first place? I belive that may or may not be covered in Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian.
Eurogames have been known in the past to tackle such subject matter as slavery, whore-murder, and imperial subjugation of native populations but I think this is the first Euro I've played that's specifically about wiping out entire species of fantasy folk. It's too bad it's not a better game, because it's a fun idea.
So over at Gameshark.com is the review ...I'd like to hear from some of you who "rather" like the game, perhaps you can educate me as to how dumb I am for not seeing all this hidden subtlety or whatever.
