It seems odd to me that the people and buildings of each color are linked thematically (e.g. reds are warriors and fortresses) but not mechanically.

So here are two mechanical ideas to link them together, which might be used together or separately.

1. Instead of completed buildings, you must have occupied buildings. Occupied buildings consist of 2 building tiles and a person tile, all of the same color. People tiles used for occupying buildings still count for majorities as normal and they are still discarded at the end of the epoch.

2. For each completed building, you may save one person tile at the end of the epoch. For the purposes of ankhs, only person tiles collected in the current epoch count.

3. Combine the above two rules; the person occupying a building is "safe" and not discarded at the end of each epoch.

What, are you saying it is impossible to inject more theme into Knizia's crystal without breaking it to millions of pieces?

No. But my best reply is further into the aforementioned territory than I choose to go.

I play that you score 3 VP not 2 VP for a building for which you have the matching colour people majority that epoch. Marginal in impact, but very easy to implement, and logical.
