Amazing luck

So I started up a new game as humans, it's my first game as the human race and it's a large island map. I immediately secure my starting island and start looking for somewhere to expand to.

An island to the right of me seems promising so I send some scouts over and see a couple of neutral cities being attacked by ogres. Being so early in the game it was quite a challenge to deal with both of the cities and the 3 ogre dens that lay on the top half of the island. Sending scouts south I uncover various neutral creatures and their lairs.

It is at this point I start to question whether securing this island so early on was worth it. What I discovered next made it all worth it. I took a look at one of the cities I had captured previously and noticed it contained a nevril deposit. Great. Nevril was incredibly rare and provided a great buff to your units.

And then I discovered 2 holy grounds with a single hex between them... Then I scouted a few hexes to the right and... another holy ground... so yeah...

I have a screenshot to prove it (unfortunately it was taken the turn before I spotted the third holy ground so you're just going to have to trust me on that one) - http://i48.tinypic.com/6egar8.jpg
If you look at the top edge of the image you can just about see the nevril deposit. Also you'll notice it's turn 76, I arrived on the island around turn 30, it took me almost 50 turns to clear out the top half of the island.

Just don't spend too much on your temples, and be careful about becoming too friendly with a god that early in the game as their avatars aren't very kind.

3rd one is a magic node. And you find nevril, adamantium, those holy grounds in loads in otherworlds anyway

The third one is out of picture, the magic node isn't particularly rare. And yes I know you can but this is in the overworld near the start
