    First, an image:



    Look at all of that land to the north of these two (soon to be three) Dutch cities. That can be ours. Pump out an army of horsemen. Raze these cities. Then use the horsemen to guard the large expanse of unclaimed land while marching settlers to their destinations.

    I 100 % agree, we should not take out the isolated Indians, but open up the Northern frontier for sudden expansion. Look at how the Dutch quickly box us in.

    We can be ready to attack the Indian's at least 10-20 turns earlier than the Dutch and be done in 8 turns and still attack the Dutch at about the same time. If we attack the Dutch first then the Indian's will just fill the gaps and we will have gained little ground. Let the Dutch colonize the lands to the NE of us and then we can just go in and take ownership later.

    Accidently voted for the Indians. I want the Dutch to suffer and hear the screams of their dead.

    Just curious, MOTH, how did you come up with those numbers?

    Personally, I vote for the Dutch. They are clearly a threat to our nation. The longer they are in the game, the longer they will be a harmful force in the progress of Fanatannia.

    It's just a survey, so it's not a important. If it was an official poll then I would get that done.

    One of the objectives in the Dutch war would be to take away their Iron. The Dutch city to the North sitting on the Iron is about 12 moves from our current borders. India's cities are only about 2 moves from our current borders. So it will take us 10-20 turns to get enough units that far North after upgrading to Swords.

    Who says we need to use swords? With a horseman's movement of two, they'll be the terror force of the ancient age, able to reinforce any of our positions within turns. Because of the distance, swords would take too long. Let us mount our warriors, not armor them.

    We have many warriors right now that can be upgrade to Swords. We will begin construction of Chariots, but we don't know how to mount our warriors right now. I know that one of my horses tried to mount me and that was just too scary. Perhaps we will learn how to ride the backs of these beasts, but it willbe most efficient to arm our current warriors with Swords and go after the Indian barbarians first and then send the mounted troops North to meet up with the Swordsmen attacking the Dutch.

    Ride them down and chop of their heads where they are still stumbling in their clogs, speaking of the future demise of the Dutch infantry given a contractual death warrant.

    After we upgrade our warriors and send them to war, who's to remain to defend us? Would it not be better to acquire horseback riding and have a mounted unit that can spread terror all the way to the age of cavalry?
