    popped a scientist, gar, i did blow him up to get this:



    arr! matey, we got'a stinking philosophy now! we can no longer kill without conscience so i thought. but then me realised, philosophy teaches pirates to have no phear, ooh-arrgh! so this was accepted as a rotten good deal. me got to cannon a scientist and we learnt no phear, aye.

    we also founded that rotten stinking religious rubbish, me hearties. now religion believes on that no stealing or killing or burning or razing to the ground. it also doesn't believe in partieng on other'cap'n ship until 5 in t'morning. so me no likey religion, arrgh.

    me wanta beserker so i research "machinery". why'd'ya need machines for crazy guys with axes and nothing to lose?



    also traded for calendar, yar. we need it later for astronomy anyways.

    building great big fat golden statue in memory of some greek hearty who throws thunderbolts and stuff. he'll smite our enemies so he will.

    here the save, me hearties:

    FIA taking the title from Ferrari and giving it to McLaren based on technical issues with a third party? I'll beat an AW Deity game before that happens.

    Trieste is UP.

    got it but I won't be able to play till tomorrow evening (exams :cringe:)

    plan for discussion:
    -revolt on turn 1 to OR/bureaucracy from the default civics
    -Research = ??? We could go lit > music still, or pick up feudalism and compass, both handy techs, or beeline liberalism, or guilds > banking for early banks. My plan is compass for harbors then beeline liberalism as it seems a bit late now to get the GL or free GA from music.
    -expansion would be (in the unlikely event of me building a settler in time) the iron/fish site near Jelling 1 NE of the iron
    -Elizabeth will trade gems for our gold, if there are no objections to this I'll take it.
    -Jelling is building a monument but it has Islam and the border will pop one turn after the monument builds anyway, is it ok to change the build?

    We didn't revolt last turnset? I marked it as a to-do item on the initial turn as that was when civil service came in.

    :mad:
    War with Louie? There's a good city spot that gets fish and iron nw of lyons. He's last in score and only knows england and the dutch who both don't like him

    I would check his contacts. I he's only known to Willem and he has negative attitude towards Louis I'm for war. We have to start it sooner or later.

    However, -4 gpt at 70% research means we could do with an infra build (courthouses) before war.

    Has he got nothing defending that city? Maybe our axeman guard (I assume there is one) can walk up and burn the city down.

    I see the galley is right there too. There's an archer and an axeman on the island on the west side of that screenshot that could be ferried over in short order before Louis transports in more troops.

    IMHO it is a opportunity that we can't waste. Go there ASAP and burn/ capture it

    The frenchy fool put the city on the iron. Burn it down, and get another settler ready to correctly settle the spot, if at all possible so he doesn't try again.

    He was probably without metals, thus he made the hard choice and settled a rubbish city to get the iron. However, him bringing a worker instead of defenders in the galley means he's left the city ripe for burning.

    Let's play Viking, shan't we? Burn, rape, raze! (at least with this city ;))

    If we can take the great library easily, then it might be worth it, but I'd think a big priority for now would be to continue to expand as much as possible, because pre-astronomy technology really limits our ability to mount an offense on an islands map.

    Thus, I still think the optimal strategy is to grow our power base now, and start the smackdown when transports allow us the most bang for our buck.

    On the other hand, if it's a gimme and we can grab it with, say, 2 galleys hauling in 4 berserkers, the islands nature of the map will severely limit their ability to strike back.

    I'll take a look at the save when I get home tonight.

    If we can get anything for peace now it would worth it to take it. We only have one galley and one berserk, and the galley ought to be used now to ferry a settler+garrison to that iron city spot. Between that, building more galleys/berserkers, and actually getting to Louis we have 10 turns easy. Seconding if any city is an easy kill we should do it.

    Turn 0 – After some thinking I decided to backfill a little ( we gave to give a use for our ol'techs.... too bad that there is not a rum resource to put on table ):
    Spoiler :



    Propose is obvious, yarr: machines for cracking heads and better ships ( y’re pirates in galleys? So roman times.... :p )

    Turn 1 – IBT Izzy wants a deal:
    (forgot screenie Lit + 110 gold vs compass )
    Said no ( lit looses a lot without TGL...) , Fred wants business too:
    Spoiler :

    Yeah, y’re pirares but y’re not stupid .....

    Mada a academy in capitol, as suggested. It took 2 turns of Educa... yurrr... that thing that gives that fancy places that have fraternities and lots of booze ;)

    One question: y’re pirates, we want a booze... so why this winery is not connected ? :p that makes our crews not happy...
    Spoiler :

    Turn 2 – Stupid Louis built Parthenon .... Ind guys never learn...

    Turn 3 – Settler ferried to city tag (3 turns ) Willem has pikes.... good, we don’t need to research it

    Turn 6 – Founded Iron city:
    Spoiler :

    Turn 8 – I don’t think that we have the possibily of launchin a attack t'Louis.... So we ask for peace * spit on the ground *
    Spoiler :

    The map of Louis shows why he’s so behind:
    Spoiler :

    This is whole the France.... A tasty target for troop training , methinks....

    Turn 9 – Fred has a sense of humour ( or a hidden bottle of rum ):
    Spoiler :

    Willem has paper and got a GS ... this guy has to go before he gets the dikes

    Turn 10 – Izzy is smoking some wierd shaped pipe as well ( y’re already have wine.... some :smoke: would be good too ;) )
    Spoiler :



    Small state of the world 1050 AD

    Empire
    Spoiler :

    Tech screen
    Spoiler :


    Thoughts

    I’m worried about willem.... he’s teching hard and it may put us in trouble. I suggest that we should take him down as soon as possible ( after getting Louis down ( that will have to wait for Astro :( the lucky bastard has a ocean belt protecting him ))). I’m afraid that he’ll get Lib out of under our noses ( if he bulbed his GS he has a chance )
    Next things are quite obvious: Lib, Astro, Gun ( maybe trade for ) Eng , chem and privateer rush willem and João ( I think that they are our more serious contenders.... )
    We’ll have a settler in 3 turns. I was thinking on the spice spot on our main island.... any idea of a alternate place?

    Roster

    azaris - Up to get us big ships to kill tha French *spit on the ground*
    Indibil - On deck , waiting to get something to do
    Zargon
    tycoonist
    Trieste
    r_rolo1 - just played, and made peace with tha French *spit on the ground*

    Good luck!

    P.S Why can’t , ye pirates , to make rum in this game :p ?
