Klamath Huckleberry Feast
Klamath Work Ethos
The Klamath Rifleman is similar to a Skirmisher in its damage bonuses, though it has less range in exchange for more hit points.
Klamath upgrades focus on boosting an allied economy and improving the Klamath Riflemen.
- The Klamath Huckleberry Feast is useful for generating wood to produce fishing boats for a water boom strategy on California or producing defensive buildings for a turtle strategy.
- Klamath Work Ethos is largely useless except in long running games such as Treaty games. The 5% increase is so tiny that it's hard to justify in any other mode of play unless the spare resources are available.
- Klamath Strategy is a solid upgrade for the Klamath Rifleman, extending their usefulness. Especially for civilizations which lack Skirmishers of their own.
- All native tribes can only be upgraded to Legendary/Exalted status at the Town Center or Capitol, they can be upgraded to Elite/Disciplined or Champion/Honored for free through some Home City shipments.
- Civilizations can remove the upgrade gold costs, or cut the upgrade costs in half depending on their home city cards.
"Located in modern-day south-central Oregon, the Klamath people were quite successful at living off the myriad of resources provided by the rivers, lakes, and lands of their territory. Extremely resourceful, the Klamath had a diet including over forty different species of mammals and fowl. They hunted with bow and arrow, nets, and nooses, and feasted upon an abundance of plants, seeds, and shellfish.
The Klamath lived in relative seclusion for thousands of years until 1826, when Peter Skeen Ogden - a fur trapper for the Hudson’s Bay Company - arrived in Oregon. More white settlers soon followed. After a few skirmishes, the treaty of 1864 moved the Klamath to a reservation. Inevitably, the culture of the Klamath changed, but their resourcefulness and ingenuity helped them to prosper for decades - in fact, during the 1950s they were one of the richest tribes in the entire U.S.
The Klamath were a very spiritual people. Crater Lake (known to the Klamath as “giwas”) held a special place in their spiritual lives and was a common destination for spirit quests, The lake was considered a dangerous realm, with spirits supposedly lurking in the depth and humans and mysterious animals inhabiting the lake floor."
