Casus Belli : Motive for war
Allow to declare war without -1000 penalty:
- if the targeted camp aggressed a third party camp, plus 500 bonus points if aggressed camp is our ally.
- if targeted camp violates our territory with its constructions.

Multipliers : Triumph with no peril...
According to instant difficulty level while playing, a multiplier is applied for destroying enemy armed units:
- Hard level: x2
- Very Hard level: x4
- Too Hard level: x8

Nota Bene: Multipliers do not apply for destroying unarmed units or buildings and for aggressors.

Ending bonus: Patience and obstinacy is paying...
In order to obtain maximum points, a game level should be played from beginning to victory without interruption.
Positive points scored in game are not acquired immediately, they are accounted into a temporary buffer then transferred in the acquired score at a rate of about 4 points per second.

Remaining points in buffer are transferred in player score if 3 conditions are met:
- the game was not reloaded from a saved game
- the game was not aborted
- the player is victorious

Nota Bene: With these 3 conditions player score is added with the surface value of conquered territory.

Score medals: Great players, great honors

Nota Bene: When you gain a medal the color of the ribbon depends on the city name you have played.

Punishments: Do you need a fresh one...
When unfortunately player strategy proved disastrous or when dirty actions are committed the score may turn negative which might end up with a score punishment:
- from
-2000 to -4999: Blame, player loses his highest medal
- from
-5000 to -9999: Demotion, player loses his 2 highest medals and his score lowered to the inferior rank
- from
-10000 and less: Prison, player loses his 3 highest medals, he loses 2 ranks and get sentenced to 3 days in prison during which the character cannot be played with.
