Racial Governance is part of the Eternal Lords expansion.


Required Racial Experience for each level of Governance:

Level: I. II. III. IV. V.
Rank: Patron Protector Champion Prophet Deity
Required Experience: 20 Experience 150 Experience 500 Experience 1000 Experience 1500 Experience

Note: These values are the totals, so to get from Level III. to IV. requires 500 Racial Experience Experience

The more cities belonging to a specific race you have in your empire and the happier each race that you have control over is, the more Racial Experience you get.

To view your current Racial Experience Experience, go to the diplomacy screen, and select the races tab on the right-hand side. Select a race to view your Racial Experience Experience, Happiness Race Happiness, and your Racial Experience Experience per turn.
