20:02 TheOverseer714 Lost Imbolc to a Cavalry, they burned it
20:03 Falcon02 lovely
20:03 TheOverseer714 Yeah, I shoulda put a second defender there

20:10 TheOverseer714 In 2 turns, I can get the Saltpeter from Greece
20:10 Falcon02 only reason I didn't suggest it was that Liverpool is too large a culture flip risk
20:11 Falcon02 If that still holds true we can reduce them to 1 city (Dover) and send more forces on the English Front to Byzantine
20:11 TheOverseer714 Yeah, peace too soon would be asking for a flip
20:13 Falcon02 Dover isn't nearly as bad of a culture flip risk though'

The save:

Jun 21, 2009, 08:45 PM
Oh, darn. Missed the Led Zeppelin. :sad:

On the West coast now. Reception/connection MUCH better. Too bad I was late. Decided to switch to Nationalism? Good move. Too bad about "Spring Festival". Way to pillage Byz Saltpeter. Going to go check the save.

Jun 21, 2009, 09:00 PM
I figure Nationalism is great trade bait, should we do a gifting up round. Steam Power is not as useful with our lack of workers.

Jun 21, 2009, 09:12 PM
We can also improve relations and get more gold by selling the World Map. Improving relations is the main benefit. If Alex pulls the SP, we'll need those Riflemen.
