    Sparthage the Younger of the Shihai clan is dimssed from the council for inactivity.
    Single Stack of the Kagaku clan takes his place in Osaka.
    Spoiler :






    1545 AD (T219)
    Tokyo completes training a pikeman and begins building walls. The pikemen are name Yarihei Sentinaru.
    We adopt a policy of organized religion, which makes the people very happy. (The happiness bonuses are given to the cities with the monuments and temples)
    Rodosha Kajo completes building a trading post in Kagoshima and begins building the next one.

    1550 AD (T220)
    We receive word that our deal to give furs to Mongolia in exchange for dyes has ended.
    This Is interesting because we never had any furs until the bug infested furs we received from Cathy during the past council session.
    We were giving Mongolia dyes in exchange for spices.
    But now we have 2 furs even though Cathy is only giving us one and we don't have any locally.
    We have no dyes, even though we're producing 3, and exporting 2, although we're only aware of exporting one to Cathy.
    On the other hand, we still have these wonderful spices with no idea where they are coming from.
    Did you follow all that?
    If not its probably best to simply take another snort of the magic frog dust and not worry about it, because that’s the way things seem to be at the moment.
    We certainly don't need 2 ratty bug infested furs, so pursuant to our trade policy we look for someone to take the excess oen since it won't affest our happiness.
    Genghis Khan is eager to renew the fur for dye deal, so there we are. Good frog, good frog.
    Spoiler :





    In less bizarre news, our ally Belgrade gives us a crossbowman.
    He is named Ishiyumi Kimyona. He will remain in Belgrade until the next council votes on where he should go.

    Genghis really likes the buggy Russian pelts we gave him and declares friendship with Cathy.
    Mongolia also announces they are now protecting Dublin.
    Rodosha Shujin completes a jungle trading post in Osaka an moves to construct one on the grassland.

    1565 AD (T223)
    Catherine is excited that we are now both friends with Mongolia and asks us to be her friend too.
    Our current policy is to only be friends with Mongolia, and she is dissappointed when we tell her we'd rather go it alone.
    Mongolia denounces Germany.
    Kyoto completes a stoneworks and begins building the national epic.
    A new citizen is born in Kagoshima. Its tomplum 68 of the Gaiko clan.

    1570 AD (T224)
    Arabia completes the Taj Mahal.
    We are no longer friends with Ragusa. They stop supplying Kyoto with food and accuse Kishi Ransu of trespassing.
    Since Ragusa is no longer at war with America, Kishi Ransu doesn't need to delay American troops and withdraws to Osaka.

    1575 AD (T225)
    Germany denounces us!
    Mongolia denounces Rome.

    Again Kyoto shall celebrate a public holiday in honour of their 141 year old daimyo, who through a combination of zen and wholesome palace food has attained a lifespan that is exceedingly long (and which has witnessed three incarnations of Filli Noctus).

    As for the tech to research I would advise metallurgy so we can get riflemen to ward off the Americans, who apparently cover our wonders and covet our bountiful lands for their own greedy and nefarious purposes.

    As to the crossbowmen I would think that giving it to Kagoshima or Kyoto would be best considering that Kagoshima has the small garrison or in the case of Kyoto that as the capital it needs protecting should the covetous americans invade.

    I think we must also look at the -7 deficit we are currently running. I saw we queue more markets and rearrange more gold producing tiles until we are in the positive again.

    Very bad economic deficit. I was afraid of this. I have been fighting for more economic-like productions for quite a while now. I also think that we should change the policy of friendship to Accept all Asks for DoF unless they are from America, or possibly Arabia. Although, of course, I am yet a young Citizen of Kyoto, and this is all just suggestion.

    This is a good idea, especially since the recent storm has made many civilizations see the benefits of DoF, and now like those whom give gifts more.

    In 20 turns we can make the decision as to that Ceskari. For now I think its better to start implementing an economic cycle by getting markets and banks where possible up and running.

    What shell we build after the University?
    a) Walls
    b) Granary
    c) Lighthouse
    d) Bank

    Regarding the new Crossbowman. Please send it to Kaghoshima, we'll disband Archer and that will save us some money on maintenance.
