Yeah, and spode worshippers are like 50% of the neighbours.

Yeah. I think I've yet to meet another Shaman. Spode followers are Zealots, right? Or do Shamans and Knights follow Spode too? Hmm.

You got to look at their philosophy. Faith is zealot.

There's another way to determine philosophy other than that first option under diplomacy? Man, I feel silly.

No, I just guessed it :-p. They tell you thier philosophy in diplomacy, and if you change to theirs, you can see your trait change.

1. Philosophy of Order - Diplomat
2. Philosophy of Force - Warrior X
3. Philosophy of Prosperity - Trader X
4. Philosophy of Science - Scientist X
5. Philosophy of Harmony - Shaman X
6. Philosophy of Faith - Zealot XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
7. Philosophy of Chance - Knight
8. Philosophy of Balance - Ecologist
9. Philosophy of (my guess, entertainment) - Bard

After checking around on google. X means I've met them.

Incidentally, there is a maximum -100 relationship modifier for destroying a race's ships, so it is entirely possible to be an ally with someone and blow their ships up all the time if you offset it elsewhere.

I'd agree with all of those except Chance. I think those are Bards. I've met several of those, and they're very goofy--too goofy to be a Knight. Their missions usually say they've been partying on planet such-and-such, and they messed something up, or lost something, etc.

Well I allied everyone I saw (well maybe one or 2 exceptions) but now that I got over 50M$ and all the weapon upgrade, I don't really care if they start war with me because there gonna get completely owned by my bombs + there capital is gonna become a lifeless rock since I got all the terraform tools. In worst case scenario I only keep the scientist that buy my purple spice for 58k

My alliances are the only reason my race is still alive! After being attacked by 2 strong empires when I had only 2 planets I payed my allies to destroy the attackers. I live in harmony ever since.

haha, that's the same strategy I used, but now there is this massive allied empire all over the place, and I just wish that I owned all those colonies... I'm jealous... :P

I went through the game and tracked down every single philosophy, sometimes looking a multiple ones if I could. The only one I can't seem to find is Knight. Otherwise, here's the philosophies an empire will say they follow, with what I believe they are, along with some key words in their dialogues.

Philosophy of Chance - Bards - talk about eating you; parties; sometimes they rhyme. "friends over for dinner." "cake" "umbrella"
Philosophy of Life - Ecologists - "follow Scrolls of Life," talk hippyish, "to sow magic, man"
Philosophy of Order - Diplomats - bureaucrats; mention forms, "super-technology of static cling," LIKE STRANGERS
Philosophy of Science - Scientist - "Knowledge," "Scholarship," "learning"
Philosophy of Prosperity - Trader - "profit margins," "business," "well-written contract" LIKE STRANGERS
Philosophy of Faith - Zealot - Spode, Spode, spode. "rightness" DISLIKE STRANGERS
Philosophy of Harmony - Shaman - "return ticket" "harmonize"
Philosophy of Force - Warrior - "strength" "fought" "strongest" "victory" DISTRUST STRANGERS
Philosophy of ??? - Knight????

Can anybody can help me track down a Knight and find out their philosophy? I'll keep looking.

What about Wanderers, unless NPC species can't be them?

I don't think they can. I haven't met any that seem like they're Wanderers. And I've looked everywhere while I was looking for Shamans and Knights. Stupid Knights.

Knights seem to be uber-rare.
