    I know I'm jumping the gun a little, but we'll be meeting them next turn. We can have a greeting prepared by then, and we have a crucial matter to decide. Do we tell them the Brotherhood has been plotting to betray them? That could pit them against the Brotherhood, but they might not fall for that trick, and it could make them more inclined to cooperate with the Brotherhood. The Brotherhood has told us that they are already fearful of Anarchie, so it could be better not to interfere and let them clash on their own. Any thoughts on how to best divide the other continent?

    I would like to get anarchie on our side to dogpile the Brotherhood. the bad thing might be that Anarchie (if successful), would have a continent on their own.

    What we learned about the Brotherhood's relationship with Anarchie is our knowledge. Let's keep it private for now. I see no benefit in sharing what is probably meaningless to the Anarchie, when we could benefit from having the knowledge, unbeknown by others, until we need to use it. By that I mean others may know the same info, but no one knows we know, except the Brotherhood.

    Let's not play as the CIA just yet. We are still trying to formulate our own ideas.

    I say we tell them, and hope it results in a war. If Anarchie does too well, then, well, we have a unique unit adapted for just that kind of work.

    :devil:

    We met Anarchie:

    And they are rather backwards. They did not meet Kueche, yet:

    The techs they lack are WC, CB, Pilo and CoL

    Furthermore I am surprised that their military is weak compared to ours.

    What is the Brotherhood talking about!? :confused:

    We would be allowed to trade Philo and CoL to them, which should be worth something.

    They told us that was the plan but it fell through. Now I see why, Anarchie didn't have anything to offer the Brotherhood (who didn't want to wait). So they made some vague excuse and started eyeballing us.

    How about this:
    This doesn't commit us to anything, but we can maybe get more information about their strange tech situation. We know that they must have given the Brotherhood IW, and I don't think they've gotten much in return. I'm guessing that the Brotherhood has somehow made an agreement with them where they hold off giving them the techs until a later time, and have planned to betray them to keep them extremely backwards. This is why they didn't want us to meet them, so that we wouldn't reduce their tech costs.
    They pretended that Anarchie was being aggressive so we wouldn't care that they betrayed Anarchie, when in reality they've been planning this themselves in order to keep their rivals as backward as possible. They might have even been planning on betraying us too in order to get as advanced as possible.

    How's this for openings?

    The End of May Gathering of the Eagles sends forth an Ambassador to the great nation of Anarchie. Our Ambassador brings you the following communication...

    Greetings to you all in Anarchie. The Eagle nation feels privileged and honored to have found you borders while exploring to the East. We offer you a path of friendship and stability in this dangerous world. We ask that you allow us open communication through our Ambassadors to further develop the new ties between our nations. May these ties be peace, truth, and sharing of the knowledge from the Ancient Teachers.

    Although we do not search for the Holy Grail, we would like to see a unified, prosperous world. With this in mind, our Scientists have noted that you lack some vital technologies that we now possess. If you feel that you have something of value that you would like to offer in exchange for this knowledge, please make an offer.

    In addition to this, perhaps you would consider an Anarchie/Eagles non-aggression pact. At this time, we notice the military supremecy of your neighbor, The Brotherhood. Further knowledge of your history and current situation with The Brotherhood would help us determine future steps in bringing a pact to the table. In time we may even trade the knowledge of our Tribe's true name.

    We await your response.

    That's 3 of 3. Should I post it in the civforum Embassy? Or should we let Calis do it?
