Sorry - I've been less-than-active recently. Yes, our allies are expecting us to research Sailing next. For one thing, Cav have revealed all of the coast between our lands, and also the coast leading to Kazakhstan. Let's make sure that we all understand HUSch's advice: DO NOT ACCEPT any trades that are offered - unless you are the turnplayer. We don't want to alert the other teams any more than necessary. From Memphus' posts in the UN, it's clear that SANCTA, at least, is watching this stuff. Perhaps the next time I chat with Methos or Oyzar I'll propose that we wait to trade IW... unless they have an immediate need for the tech.
