The "overslept" thread rose another warped question :

When determining the effect of hinduism on GPs, does one do it before or after adjustments for :
- wild card
- scoring half glory because of Glory ?
- scoring nought because of Glory Humbug or Glory pour Moi
- increasing glory from extended glory
- anything else you could think of

Hinduism adjusts the Glory generated by an Empire during Harvest Glory.
By definition, a wildcard has no impact, as it is not an adjustment of the Glory generated by an Empire, nor takes place during Harvest Glory.

I would say that Hinduism is part of the Glory Calculations and adds/reduces the Glory generated by an Empire AFTER events that adjust the Glory generation have been taken into account(ie Glory ?, extended glory etc).

Cards like Glory Humbug and Glory pour Moi do have an impact of the Glory generated by the Empire with Hinduism, but the concept of these cards would suggest that they take place AFTER the adjustments caused by Hinduism.

You are mostly right Rudi. The benefit is AFTER all modifications including cards that double all empire's glory etc. However where the effect is on a player's glory then that doubling/halving occurs after the glory for the hindu empire is ascertained.
