The Age of Discovery is the sixth generator that creates Ideas and the second of the Pre-Industrial Civilizations. In this age, innovations in navigation and transportation allowed for Europe and the Americas to make contact, leading to colonization, cultural exchange, and violence.
Mankind tests the boundaries of their known world, exploring over land and sea. This ushers in an era of global trade, colonialism, shared culture, and communicable disease.
The icon for the Age of Discovery is a gold sextant and a spyglass.
