Why would the WB go north? I think it is better to try to establish a trade route as soon as possible. Until that happens, we can't see what resources they have connected. That is important info. About the info: It is hard to establish trust if nothing is risked. I only offered info if I was able to get something in return for it. Perhaps I am telling them more than I am getting from them, but that is a hard thing to establish. It is important that they trust us, and it is equally important that we trust them. At this point in the game, I'm not sure how else to build trust. I'll try to be more careful in going forward.
