Thank you, Sir Ravensfire, but I must respectfully Decline. I will probably be too busy with the CHD. Hopefully, I will also be on the Bench.

NEWS BULLETIN: Continuing the trend of self-nominations, Noldodan has today announced his self-nomination and acceptance of said nomination.
Dec 22, 2003, 02:17 PM
In the spirit of things ...
Ravensfire nominates himself and Declines :eek:
Dec 22, 2003, 10:43 PM
I nominate both DZ and Falcon for this position
Dec 22, 2003, 11:44 PM
The way things are looking, we'll need two Governors-at-large as well...
Dec 23, 2003, 05:15 PM
Although there a some good candidates running for Governor and Governor-at-large, I'm going to throw my support behind Plexus.
Plexus has been a Governor in all of the 3 Demogames. In the first one, he Governed Ameri, in the second one, he Governed the Provinces of Bohemia and Shouri. In DG3 he was the original Governor of Aventine Province, before moving onto Culture. I'm sure he'll do an excellent job in DGIV. Welcome back Plexus.
Dec 23, 2003, 07:16 PM
During my term as President in DG3, I could always count on Noldodan to provide the leadership and communication I needed as President. As one of the more experienced Governors, Noldodan is the best qualified candidate for our first Governor.
Vote Noldy in DG4!

The first term of this game is the most critical as it sets up the foundation of our future. As our first Governor, your ability to set the build queues for our first cities is especially important. What are the first 5 things you will place in the build queue of our capital city.
Dec 23, 2003, 08:01 PM
Well, depending on the location we arrive in, I would put a warrior for scouting first, then another one for police and then possibly a granary. If we have grown large in that time prior to the ganary, i would put a settler in.
Dec 23, 2003, 09:05 PM
Well, my basic starting strategy goes:
Really, it depends on the population of the capital, goodie huts and techs.
Dec 23, 2003, 10:14 PM
Well sinse we probably wont get much from goodie huts and techs wont come as early unless we start Pottery first, this is my queue.
-Barracks (Granary Prebuild)
-Switch to Granary when pottery is taken/researched
Finish Granary and start warrior to have population higher more, we need to produce settlers at a high population and stay at a high population for top production and gold, meaning better research for technology and trade.
Dec 24, 2003, 03:58 AM
Thank you for your unexpected support, Ravensfire!
My first build queue would look somewhat like this...
But, IIRC, don't we determine the build queues collectively for the capital, at least early on?
Dec 24, 2003, 10:35 AM
Mine is usualy:
And the it depends on the terrain.
If the city has trouble keeping up with the settling pace, I usualy build a granary.
If the city is over-fertile, I usualy continue spear-settler, unless I go for 20K culture victory.
Dec 25, 2003, 11:08 AM
A question for my fellow candidates:
How do you want to handle mayor power?
Dec 25, 2003, 11:11 AM
My opinion about the mayors is to actualy listen to what they say. They can be very helpful, though, as governor, I must be able to do their job alone without crippling our nation. I also plan to be very active in the city-theads of my province.
The mayors allow us to get more people active, they must have some power, afterall.
Dec 25, 2003, 11:41 AM
I, as a long time annoying mayor, believe that the mayors opinions are helpful. They watch over one city in specific and can sometimes see things you, the governor, are unable to. I support mayors.
Dec 26, 2003, 01:12 AM
Ill nominate Donovan Zoi and Plexus
Dec 26, 2003, 03:24 AM
On Mayoral power: If someone wishes to put their time and effort into being a Mayor in my province, ever, then I will listen to their suggestions. If, however, those suggestions do not coincide with the current build strategy that I have in mind, I will not use those suggestions unless a good reason to use them is presented. This build strategy would be clearly outlined in the Province thread. An example of when I would change it is if a Mayor wishes to build cultural improvements in a good-sized city while we are locked in a major war.

Mayors should be advisors to the Governor, as such, the Governor should not be obligated to follow the proposed build queues, but they should be taken into consideration. Active mayors can be an important part of a gubernatorial administration, as it allows for an extra dimension to be added to the game.
