This was just an idea that was thrown around in a chatroom earlier. During the course of idle conversation with Apolyton's BigFree, it was proposed that we give our nothern lands to CGN, for the purpose of allowing them to rebuild a homeland, in the same fashion that GCA has done. The idea is this: We give up the northern lands, since they are of little use to us due to high corruption, a result of our southernly palace/FP locations. Apolyton goes in and builds six or seven cities, complete with workers to improve the lands. The cities are gifted to CGN, who can use them to generate more gold for the alliance. CGN could make much better use of the land, giving all three nations the equivland corruption-fighting power of five palaces (whereas without, we'd only have four effective ones (FP included)). Hopefully, the total result is that we get more gold for our research battle against GWT, along with more arties for CFC and APO later. Remember, this is all rather preliminary discussion - I don't think the subject have been brought up with CGN at all. Well, thoughts?
