If you will turn your attention to the Turn 146 thread, you will see that in the north Apolyton is advancing two Medieval Infantry units from just south of their Silk colony. As far as I can see, this violates Article III of our Alliance(below - section in boldface). Correct me if I am wrong, but were the chokepoints not "mutually agreed on borders?" Or does our border agreement need to be officially ratified to be honored here? If we are indeed justified in our concerns, then I believe it would be catastrophic to grant our newly-acquired Chivalry tech to Apolyton. However, if we follow our Alliance to the letter, we may be able to avoid doing so anyway. Nowhere in Article II does it mention anything about how we handle techs received from another nation. One minor issue is if we may have violated a section of Article II(below - section in boldface) by not disclosing our trade with CGN. Or if we have alerted our allies to this trade, how will we convince them that they cannot have it until they remove their troops? Before I set up talks with Poly, I would like some input here. I would like to address this matter soon, so please discuss it at your earliest convenience. Our survival may depend on it.
