Stardock Entertainment released a slew of new screenshots from Arnor, and they include some sweet new tools for managing your civilization. You can be one of 12 civilizations, ranging from the humans to the evil Drengin, and strive to conquer the galaxy. Click through for details and screenshots.

I like the thing where you can "customize your civilization." I wish I could do that in real life. And the improved Colony Management tool looks pretty sweet. Plus there are nice snippets, like the origins of the "Arena of Agony," and great dialog like "Can you believe there are some civilizations that believe eating others is wrong?" Plus, apparently destroying an entire universe is not a trivial effort. Other new features:
