    As templar said, we have contact with the Deutsche Küche now. Unfortunately I can't open the save until late tonight, so can someone please fill in the necessary details here? How did we meet them?! (Depending on that I may need to replace the "after a long dangerous journey" part in our greeting message...)

    So they don't know Philo. Well, that's not so important as the Eagles know that, so they can always swap. More important is: do they know CoL?? Also did any tech costs drop? That will tell us whether they have anything to trade.

    Any guess as to their civilization?

    Ok, I see now, they met us.

    I'll answer with a first Hello-message, filling in concrete details later tonight.

    Should we inform the Anarchos about our new contact? Might increase the "pressure" onto them...

    yes, but it does not matter whether we do so today or tomorrow.

    what about offering Philo to the Küche? maybe they start telling us about their deal they already have for Philo...

    Ok, the Küche does not know: Ironworking, CoL, Philosophy.
    That means the other continent does not know CoL yet!!

    Too late for a "before/after" comparison tonight. Can someone else do it? I would still like to know, whether they have a tech that we don't know yet.

    I asked the Küche for passage through the Salzburg waters. No reply yet, but I expect that they at least say "yes" or "no", before they pass the turn to us.

    They offered a "free passage for curraghs" deal for 50 turns (from now (T59) until T110). What do you think?

    sure, why not. they can move any curragh they have in 50 turns freely either through our waters on our continent, or our waters on their continent. :devil:

    After one month the Küche decided to reply to one post of Lanzelot.

    I have to say, the diplo in this game, from all sides, can only be seen and called ridiculous!

    The funny thing is that they contradict the Eagles. Their version is much likelier: They were close to finalizing deals with the Eagles, when Calis saw they we would be so much more powerful partners. However, we proved to be so much more difficult, too. So they chose to be Primus with a weaker partner rather than Secundus with us.

    This is what the Küche posted. I found it hilarious. And this shows that the dates the Eagles are telling us about will probably not be true.

    Whatever, I would like to reply like this:

    Just something like that. I think L should answer, whatever he likes, on that line, to cause some more mistrust.

    Very interesting response from the Küche:

    Looks like I was right and all three teams now believe the "Anarcho's side of the story".

    wouldn´t it be so much nicer now if we could ignore all this, we had taken the Eagles´ offer, they would take the Geschmacksverstärker out, and us the Anarchie?

    only because we leant so heavily towards the totally unreliable Anarchie brought us here. that is no reproach towards anyone, or you, Lanzelot, only the counter-thesis that our ACTING caused the problems we face now. it was our NON-ACTING, even though the signs were so clear that they were hurting.

    btw, they do not even have direct contact, and still claim that the reason is that they know we do not have the right to trade Lit to them? come on. it becomes harder and harder to not simply call everone else´s diplomacy just plain stupid in this game.

    That confirm my point DK SURRENDER ALL EXTERNAL AFFAIR TO EAGLES. And even all external communications needs Eagles confirmation. It is so obvious, that i do not understand why Cyc demonstrate it to us? Question: shall we let them know that we understood?

    have a short look on their latest town foundations. can you believe this? with all that nice land in their north/northeast, they build those crap towns on the most impossible city sites in the s/se?!?!?!

    I think Eagles dictated them where to settle.
    This is the way how proper diplomacy one have to conduct if have some superiority.
