Nigrafantasia led by Van Darkholme is a custom civilization by Mathetes tou Megalou Aleaxndrou.


Dawn of Man

Hail to you, Van Darkholme, the one who pursues a noble aim even through an ignominious job! The people of Nigrafantasia praises your noble radiance. While you work as a gay porno actor, you've used that money to help the poor in developing countries and earned yourself a cadre of loyal followers through your noble decision. While the casual homoerotic memes started to decline, your fanbase did not shrink unlike Billy Herrington, allowing you to stand strong as an icon of the Asian memetic world. While the fanbase is small and the meme creator base smaller, you remain a strong force in the internet.

Great and merciful Van Darkholme, the hardcore supporters will face your enemies and they will fight like hundred men. They will spread the great memes once again and bring you everlasting glory. Van Darkholme, are you ready to accept this challenge, spread the casual homo memes to great victory and build a civilization that will stand the test of time?


Van Darkholme's Nigrafantasia is a production-focused civilization based on combat. All of his bonuses are tied to both fighting and production, making Van Darkholme a strong candidate for a Domination victory, or less optimally a Diplomatic or a Science victory.

Van Darkholme's bonus that is most apparent is the Workers from Barbarians, granting him a small edge in diplomacy by allowing him an alternative method of acquiring workers rather than declaring a war on a city-state to capture the said worker. Couple that with his bonus production from improving tile, Van Darkholme can easily win over nearby city-states if he invests in units or caravans with Civ IV Traits enabled. Even without the said mod, Van Darkholme still is a powerful leader: The bonus production from improving tile will affect development positively by reducing the time needed to either train troops or build buildings and this is especially so in the early game.

Van Darkholme's unique unit is also a powerful asset. The Nigri Domini provides passive Production production and Tourism tourism bonuses when starting a turn in friendly territory, while also providing the military bonuses that the Great Generals provide. Not only that, the Nigri Domini augment units that shares a tile with it, granting Nigrafantasia a combat bonus above what other civilizations have. In addition, they can be used to win Wonder Races, acquire gold in a pinch, or acquire Tourism Tourism either for a cultural victory or to shift ideological pressure in Nigrafantasia's favor. Because it is a Great General replacement, Nigrafantasia can, unlike many other civilizations, put 2 points in Honor as a viable strategy.
