I really enjoy the quotes on BE from the sponsors everytime a wonder or a technology was announced. I added the quotes that game from the actual leaders onto the leader pages. However several of these quotes were not made by these leaders.
I am going to take a little break from BERT and this wiki. I figured I would put this out there if anyone wanted to mess with it. Enjoy.
I am thinking we could eventually create a quote page. Maybe even spin some of the sources into separate pages. Not sure what a good name could be.
- Lore (CivBE)?
- Quotes (CivBE)?
Here are the quotes not with leaders.
