We have one setter ready this turn and very little places to put it. The three areas available to settle are:

1.Northwestern Forests

2.Northern Valley

3.Unknown Northeast

Feel free to support one area, or specify any single tile.

EDIT: changed maps to have grid.

Hi snipelfritz,
In the Indian war thread I suggest changing the Settler to a Sword thus delaying the settler by 3 turns. Still, this conversation needs to happen.

I still like the location of the Hill north of the Iron and next to the 2 floodplain wheats.

My second choice would be the Grasslands north of the River inside of India's borders. We could claim this at about the time we would be capturing Bombay.

I actually believe that a settler was already built at the end of last TC.

Nope, it will be built on the ibt unless we change it to a settler.

I think the site by the wheat is a good idea. It'll have to be defended of course, preferably with vet spearmen. We're going to war soon.

If not that, we could just hold the settler for a couple of turns, we'll need it eventually. Or we could switch to sword, and it might let us get this war going faster

Woop, you're right, I missread the TC summary.
I like the Iron-wheat site as well.

If we donít switch the settler that Camelot is producing to a sword, my preference is stockpile the settler until after we start war with India, and then decide where we want to settle him (Bombay isnít ideally situated so I wouldnít mind replacing that city). If we have to make a decision now as to where the next settler will go, Iíll support the Iron/Wheat area.

Whose city was razed up there?

Anyway - Stop settling, start conquering. :)

I wondered about that razed city as well.

Seeing your input, I have made a request to Governor Noldodan that the settler be changed to a swordsman.

There was a chinese city there last save I think. It looks like an auto-raze from the Dutch war.

I have posted my instructions, if there is a settler built this turn, he will settle of the Iron-Wheat site.

With capturing some Indian territory, there are now gaps to fill in with settlers before the Dutch beat us to them. I'd suggest deciding on a spot and lobbying the Governor for a settler. :D
