Climax

The climax is, by definition, the game-ending event. These are listed below. In addition, at this juncture, team members are penalized for "sharing their victory" and physical control of the planet in the Orion System where the Orion Senate resides is rewarded. Note that all players are eligible to score Climax Points, not just the one(s) that bring the game-ended event to pass.

Sole Survivor

These points are awarded according to the schedule below. Obviously, if this is the climax ending, columns 2 through 5 are superfluous and, if it's not, then column 1 is. Columns 2 through 5 are awarded regardless of which other Victory Conditions are set to "on."

Number of Existing Civilizations at Game's End


    Map Size 1 2 3 4 5
Tiny 500 125 40 0 0    
Small 750 190 60 25 0    
Medium 1100 275 90 35 0    
Large 1650 415 140 55 20    
Huge 2500 625 210 80 30    
My, God! 3750 940 315 120 45    


For example: Sole Survivor is not the climax (i.e., the game-ending). The board size is Large and there are only 4 civilizations remaining on the map, so each of those 4 civilizations would score 55 Climax Points.

Lone Superpower

These points are awarded according to the schedule below when one civilization has 2/3 of the sum of all PowerGraph points for all existing civilizations and accepted the gig.


Map Size Points Awarded the Lone Superpower
Tiny 325
Small 500
Medium 750
Large 1100
Huge 1650
My, God! 2500


Continuing with our above example, the game ends by declaration of a Lone Superpower. On a Large map that garners the winner 1100 Climax points. Since there are 4 civilizations remaining on the map each would score 55 Climax Points (including the Lone Superpower, raising its total to 1155).

Major Powers: These points are awarded according to the schedule below when the Climax is not either Sole Survivor or Lone Superpower (if it has been selected as a Victory Condition this game) for the "Major Powers" at the end of the game. The column headings are factions based on a civilization having more than that amount of the sum of all PowerGraph points for all existing civilizations (but not enough to make the next category up).

Size of Existing "Major Powers" at Game's End

Map Size 1/2 1/3 1/4 1/5
Tiny 150 60 0 0
Small 200 80 0 0
Medium 300 120 50 0
Large 500 200 65 0
Huge 800 320 95 40
My, God! 1200 580 155 55

Senate President

These points are awarded according to the schedule below when one civilization has received 2/3 (rounded up) of all the votes cast for Senate President and accepted the gig.


Map Size Points Awarded the Senate President's Civilization
Tiny 325
Small 500
Medium 750

Senate Power Brokers: These points are awarded according to the schedule below when the Climax is not Elected Senate President (and it has been selected as a Victory Condition this game) as the "Senate Power Brokers" at the end of the game. The column headings are factions based on a civilization having at more than that amount of the sum of all Senate President Votes for the last Senate Presidential Election held for all existing civilizations (but not enough to make the next category up).

Voting Size of Existing "Senate Power Brokers" at Game's End

Map Size 1/2 1/3 1/4 1/5
Tiny 150 60 0 0
Small 200 80 0 0
Medium 300 120 50 0
Large 500 200 65 0
Huge 800 320 95 40
My, God! 1200 580 155 55

Legitimate Heir

These points are awarded according to the schedule below when one civilization has managed to line up 2/3 (rounded up) of all the Heir Support Points currently in the game and accepted the gig.


Designer's Note: "Heir Support Points" are sparse. Each existing non-Harvester / nomadic entering civilization receives 1. Each Full Orion Senate Member receives 1. The civilization that is highest on the PowerGraph (if there is only one) receives 1. The civilization that controls Orion receives 2. Specials might also provide the occasional Heir Support Point to a civilization while it exists. The giving and taking of support to an Heir is a big deal politically.

Small 500
Medium 750

Huge 1650
My, God! 2500

Aura of Legitimacy: These points are awarded according to the schedule below when the Climax is not Legitimate Heir (and it has been selected as a Victory Condition this game) as those with an "Aura of Legitimacy" at the end of the game. The column headings are factions based on a civilization having at more than that amount of the sum of all Heir Support Points for all existing civilizations (but not enough to make the next category up).

Huge 1200 580 155 55
My, God! 1700 900 245 85

Antaran Mystery: These points are awarded according to the schedule below when one civilization has acquired the 5th X and accepted the gig.
