I'm playing Atilla on a continents game, King. early in the game, Korea settles its second city 6 tiles away from Attila's Court on the other side of a bay (but on the same landmass)... being the peacemonger I am, I just work around the Korean city and settle my second city to the east of that one, about 6 tiles away again (not in the same direction as Seoul). but, hypocrites they are, this promptly freaks Korea out about my expansionist tendencies, and a few hundred years later, they declare war on me. it wasn't a terribly long war -- I obliterated Korea's military, and to give them a good thumping on the nose, I conquered that second city sitting across the bay from my capital and puppetted it (would have loved to just raze it, but razing cities is turned off in this game). in the peace settlement, I also demanded their third city, which they gave up as well. now, 1000 years later and Polynesia (our neighbor on the continent) is still guarded towards me with a red line about hating warmongers. Korea even seems to have put it past them (though the AI might be lying judging by the cannons on our shared border), but every other country on the globe is friendly towards me. so why isn't this diplomatic penalty with Polynesia going away?
