    We should be considering strategic building of the available national wonders. I'm not at a place where I can post specifics, but the earlier we start the earlier we finish. Anyone have any ideas on what we should do here. Futures discussions are OK too, don't know exactly which ones are available right now myself...

    The Global Theatre is currently being built in Fort Impervious, it will be construrcted in 8 turns. Are there any other National Wonders that have been built?

    No others built yet.

    We should think of building enough libraries and universities for Oxford in BW. BW also has a Academy and with Buercracy it will perform most of the research. We need 7 total universities. ( and the correct tech)

    Another good one would be Iron works...we need 7 forges first. ( and teh correct tech)

    To build Oxford, would take a very long time were not even close to education. But I guess it is good to plan ahead. When we build Ironworks i think it should go in Old Sarai, but the cities could change quite alot. What about the National Epic if we can put it in a city with already a good GPB then we could get a Great Prophet, which we could use to found Islam. Its just a thought by the time the GP is born Islam will probably be claimed by another Civ.

    We discussed that a while ago, ilr 18, and while it's a good plan, the main problem was how to actually get a great prophet out. None of our available buildings propel great prophets, and none of cities can have priest specialists, so it's unlikely.

    For oxford, BW or NPC are candidates for high commerce, and for Ironworks, Toot will have the highest hammers (iirc)

    Well to get the most from Oxford..you need to have your 7 cities picked out and have libraires in them. So you are ready to build univeristies when its time. Thats why I mentioned it.

    Heroic epic..couple that wiht iron works and you have one city thats capabel of putting out loads of units. You could put t in another city and then have 2 cities so as not to put all your eggs in one basket.

    I would say put the heroic epic and ironworks in different cities, then in one of those cities we can build west point. Also what about Wall Street. That will be coming up soon, and we could really use it right now.

    Can we build the Forbidden Palace? Anyone know if its effects are cumulative with courthouses in the affected cities?

    We need 2 more courthouses. And I think we need to plan on not getting any more cities, so Old Sarai would probably be the best place to put it.

    I also think that Fort Impervious, our GP city, should build the National Epic (but it still needs to build a library first). This will give 100% increase in GPP, plus 1GPP for Artist.

    We should also get the Heroic Epic (+100% Military Production), but I can't seem to find a good city for it right now.

    So for now we can't do much with this topic, right? Do we want to press for any of the pre-requisite buildings to be started?

    Well, I think the library in FI is a good idea and we definitely must press for more courthouses.

    To be balanced with military troops, of course :)
