    Knoedel, did you receive the file?

    If so, when could you play?

    That is something!

    Knoedel, so maybe now you can ask (from your tablet) the question that you wanted to ask everyone?

    ...

    What.

    ...

    ublock origin...

    why? What! How does that make any bloody sense whatsoever!

    Okay it turns out ublock origin (my adblocker) has been sabotaging my efforts? I just thought of it because trying to open this thread in another tab instantly closes it as if it were a popup, which made me think of trying to post a reply with ublock origin turned off, and here we are. Why my adblocker thinks threads of this one specific game are dangerous malware or something I don't know.

    Now then, about this game:

    Okay I'm calling shenanigans!

    The Viking player, upon me landing a small stack outside a South American city of his, just gifted that city to the now AI controlled Russia. The same Russia I had been fighting a futile war for for centuries, the same Russia I had (back when it was controlled by Kiwitt) promised handing over most continental Viking cities including his own former core lands to because I just wanted a single strong friend with no colonial ambitions to my east. Only last turn was Kiwitt retired to AI, and only this even made this act possible, because even if the Vikings had hypothetically handed over that city to Russia, Kiwitt would have immediately granted it to me, or at least offered to sell it. Now it belongs to a stupid AI which, although it's friendly, won't hand it over without a war.

    There must be some house-rule or other prohibiting this kind of cynical meta-gaming abusing player takeover by an AI!

    City gifting seems to be allowed, earlier I had to wage war against Khmer due to similar reason. Iirc Mongols gifted a city to them near Russia. So bite the bullet and DoW on Russkies or leave the colony to them.

    Guys, my first son will be born probably on this first week of April, so, my turns must delay some days from now on. I will try do my best to maintain the games moving.
    Hope have a little patience from you.
    Cheers.

    I dislike actions made for denial purposes. That is why that I always put a houserule preventing it in the games that I organize.

    However taking into account the following:
    1) There is no explicit houserule of such kind in this game
    2) Nighthawk seemed that kind of guy that was in favour of 'what is not forbidden it is allowed'
    3) Some nations in this game have already suffered from such kind of actions in the past

    Taking that into account I would say that, in this game, that particular action is allowed...

    As a last resort, you could always ask for Nighthawk's neutral opinion. I would accept as valid any ruling that he makes on the subject.

    Knoedel, in light of the few comments, I propose that you accept that what the Vikings done is acceptable within this game and that we move on. Agreed?

    I need to gift cities to keep only 4 by the end of the turn. Sometimes. Most of the time Mongols just raze.

    The Scandinavian Empire graciously accepts Russian pleas for protection and gains their loyalty as a vassal state. Now that Russians have learned their colonies aren't safe from their old treacherous English "allies" they turn towards the true ruler of their region ;). Scandinavian Empire will be a good master to the poor Russians.
