    T91: Peace refused. And I tread on England's face on their loyal waters or some such.
    T92: Cairo taken with builder, see you bye Saladin! Monument started. Pericles and Viccy think I'm a war monger, Freddy still friends.
    T94: Currency finished, Horseback Riding started.
    T95: Theology finished, Games and Recreation started. Lugdunum founded, archer started. Envoy sent to Geneva, suzerain status gained. Freddy not happy about that.
    T98: Ravenna finishes settler, Commercial Hub started. Freddy like my Govt choice.
    T99: Rome finishes trader, Commercial Hub started.
    T100: Antium finishes archer, Commercial Hub started. Ostia founded, archer started.

    So how am I looking after 100 turns? Cumae is about to finish another settler which I'll found near Rome so I'll have four cities feeding IC's into Rome later. My goals for the next 50 turns is to get some CH's up and more traders feeding Rome to start snowballing it. I'm going to aim at taking Greece and Germany as well so my continent truly becomes MY continent! I'm on the verge of a Prophet so religion is coming up. After getting IC's I'll move back to the top of the tech tree so I can explore outside of this rock I'm on. As well as the 5 Greek/German cities, it looks like there's only another 5-6 settling spots.
