e/ So after working in the home office for weeks now you get to enjoy staying at home during a pandemic without working from home?
OT: i am uni teacher, i was for 3 & 1/2 months on HO and even the quarantine is released more or less in our end of world, i would give all my gold for staying at home without working if it continued. the HO stuff (videocon every day, instant phoning etc) is mentally debilitating and exhaustive, NOT doing any mandatory wurck even being locked down is still golden ;) the stress is released effectively once you are truly master on your own with your time and mind.

As a software engineer who's also been working from home for months now, I would greatly appreciate a vacation.

Working from home doesn't make work better, it makes being home worse. I honestly miss being able to cleanly seperate my work time from my home time.

Now, I do find it irksome that after pretty much a month of radio silence they tell us we're getting *another month* of radio silence, but them working from home isnt really a luxury.

I was more referring to the fact they've been stuck at home al lthis time, and now that there are holiday, they still can't go anywhere and are stuck at home for even longer - As in: This would drive me nuts!

First pic looks like someone inciting a revolt (the black things in the bottom look like fists).

So my guess next xpack is going to be:
* Espionage (in Civ games spies often had an action to incite revolts)
* Internal politics (2nd icon; don't think it's going to be diplomacy since we already got a recent DLC about it)
* Rebellions (I hope for more impactful rebellions like the original Star Wars movies instead of several chanceless one planet minors emerging in a rebellion)

Black thing in the bottom is skelly. Necromantic civic? Or maybe weird Ancestor veneration :D ? Second is probably internal politics.
