    We get steel in few turns, we pay to Cav that they can research with 100%.
    Sat has in this turn again draft 2 musk.

    Interesting. It would help greatly in planning to know approximate attack date.

    Here is another message
    I don't think we can any do in the war between Cav/Kaz against SAN. There is the long way to SAN, but now we are exploring SAN's coast with a cara and we 've 2 units there: a workboat and a warrior between their towns outside their culture. We haven't oB with them anymore.

    Are we switching to a cash economy, 0% research, cottages, markets/banks/etc in order to max gold? Buying tech is cheap, but never gets you there first. Is purpose of Music to advance towards cavalry? This will be a long path if we are sending all gold away. Perhaps you should only commit to do so for a specific number of turns, to be re-evaluated at that time. We will eventually need military techs from them or we will be an easy target, and our allies won't be able to reinforce us in time. Must take some responsibility for this ourselves. Gear at least one production city towards defense units, or at least so it could make defense units quickly if something unexpected occurs.

    Just some advice. It actually looks like you are handling tings pretty well.:goodjob:

    We are not winning this game (surprise!). Our goal is that our ally wins.
    So we make money and research a little.


    btw
    Nice to read from other members also.

    Yes, I understand that. However, I think you should try to get something out of it for MadScientists... a guarantee that they will not conquer us under any circumstance, nor allow us to be conquered by anyone else. We want to finish no lower than 3rd on the score list, and perhaps as high as second.

    That's not too much to ask for, since without us our allies will lose.;)

    What kind of garantee; I think that they get from us, what they need. And also I hope that we get a few techs from them before SAn or Sat will land at our shores. The big point is astro, SAN/Sat haven't it and it's a expensive tech, which is not so important for land wars. When they 've astro, we should get chem/steel etc.

    Now (800AD) Kaz has researched RP and we send them +300 :gold:
    Our land prosper, we beginning with custom houses and will be build a settler at CERN/Peri for the desert town in south.

    820 AD SAn has attacked our warrior near their road and make peace afterwards, I say yes.
    840 There is a new barb town between us and Sat, I think we will get it next.

    Good news on barb town. I think SAN was very rude. Should have warned us to "move from road or be attacked" before they attacked. Very bad manners. We will remember this. Good call on the peace, though. I doubt we'd see much fighting, but we don't need war weariness.

    I think, there is no ww without fighting and lost of units, but if we 've war, our chariot in the land between Sat and SAN and our cara at the shores of SAN could be lost, and we need them to explore. The working boat at SAN's shore is a good lookout til SAN has astro.

    We send another 1000 ::gold:: to Kaz, I don't know why and ask.
    But we have now another problem, or better I need some ideas about the barb town.
    3 longbows at hill-town, what kind of units should we build, I think we need cannons, so I should request steel. Some ideasabout it were nice.

    I assume as barb town it has no culture. I would not wait to build cannons, I'd use knights with a suicide treb or two. If LB's are heavily promotes with city defender, you might want to bring more knights. Note that knights are immune to first strikes, so if they are first-strike promoted LB's it is not a problem, though damage from trebs is less. Cannons are 12 str vs LB's, but trebs are 8 str in city attack. Give city attack promo to trebs they are almost as good as unpromoted cannon. We lose fewer units (maybe) by waiting for cannons, but sooner capture starts building city will makes up for those (maybe) extra lost units pretty quickly.

    2 trebs and 6 knights should do. But if you have access to better units, always use best you got first.

    We have no Knights and no trebs. So we must build it.
    There are only 2 barracks, so we get only few promoted units.
    I request this turn steel and rifles, so we can build better units.
    The Longbow have 10,20 against our Ax, so we need good units against them

    btw
    Should we build first Heroic? 133 :hammers: We get then a unit cheaper, ie cannons from 80 (with forge) to 45. Also is good if we build 3 cannons or like-units.
    If we want this, what kind of promotion for our best axe with *, CR and a free promotion, perhaps a next CR
