|The Test of the Funerary Temple|
|(Test - Architecture)|
Construct a glorious Temple to entice the dead to visit earth. Only the finest will pass the Test of the Funerary Temple.
Build a most glorious temple, in dazzling colors, to welcome spirits of those past back to earth. Temples' scores are heavily weighted on the variety of colors, and far less so on the quantity. The exact formula is a mystery.
The Glory of Funerary Temples comes more from the range of colors used in their construction than in the number of tiles.

Glory was changed to be log4 based in Tale 9.
Glory is calculated individually for each type of tile, then added. More tiles of the same type increase your glory, but there are diminishing returns: for example, 64 tiles of the same color only give as much glory as 4 tiles of different colours. So to maximize the glory of your temple, you should try to have many different colors. See the table below.
|Tiles of the same color||1||2||4||16||64||128||256||512||1024||2048||4096||16384||65536|
|Glory for that color||100||135||200||300||400||450||500||550||600||650||700||800||900|
In general, N tiles of one color give 100*(1+log4(N)) points for that color.
Or, if you don't have log4 on your calculator: 100*(1+log(N)/log(4)).
The glory value is rounded down to the nearest integer after summing up all individual colors (e.g. even though 3 of 1 color will give you 179, and 11 of another will give you 272, combined they will give you 452, since their fractional components still get added before rounding down for the final score).
