Discussion in 'Eagles' started by Calis, Apr 22, 2011.
One imprtant thing, before I am leaving:
From "The Brotherhood":
Excellent! More contacts! First, can we offer them anything in exchange for IW? Since they got philosophy, I doubt that we can. Besides, I would rather ask them for literature.
I think it would be best to not reveal that we have an exploring party of our own. Which direction did they come from? Also, are sure that they are seafaring now?
I wish I had seen that email before I played the turn last night. It was evident that we had met the Brotherhood on several screens, but no units were visable on the map.
I don't think we can say for certain that they are sea-faring, although it may be likely. Not trade dialouge screen popped up from them, so no in - game offer was made. I didn't contact them via the diplo screen either. I can look at that today. I can also post the save in the "analysis" thread.
They chose Code of Laws as their free tech, since its price has dropped from the previous turns (from 8 to 4 turns). Trying to figure out where their boat came from, there are several possibilities.
Interesting. Two down and one to go. I believe that contact is most likely from the north, though I suppose it could have been from the south.
I built a scenario in the editor, and found that they had to have come from the north or in that fog of war near Aerie, or maybe they disbanded their boat so we didn't know where they came from (highly implausible to say the least). I realized they could not have sunk in the sea as that would happen on the beginning of their next turn.
Excellent reply, CharlemagneXLII.
Where do we send it? A better end to the letter could be "The Senate and People of the Eagles" but I thought it might be too much of a hint as to our true country.
"The People" should be good enough. No need to give extra clues.
A group of Eagles is called a Convocation or Aerie, and we've used Aerie as our capital. Would Convocation be better to refer to us in the plural/collective?
I like convocation.
So this would be the right way?
Why did nobody post a reply within the eight days I was not here?
And furthermore, the suspicion of a violation of rules is also not a very good start for a relationship!!
This we received today as a reaction to our silence and "border violation action".
Our reply should contain a sincere apology for our mis-doings!
Keep in mind that no team name was mentioned and no mode of transportation was mentioned. An apology would be good, as my error was forgetting about the Shift-D contact. I was going to reply in the Brotherhood/Eagles Embassy this morning, but didn't want to post anything until I saw some opinions posted here.
Don't know why nothing was sent in the last eight days in response to their greetings.
Oh I thought this was done through email. Yes, I believe an apology would be in order, both for the late reply and accusation, something to the effect that we're a bunch of confused hatchlings without Calis around.
This I have written them as a short notice. Tomorrow I want to send them someting appropriate.
I have now posted our greetings in the Civ Forums.
From our previous discussions, I am sure the teams would prefer to enter some long-term tech trading treaty with The Brotherhood.
So here is a proposal for a letter to them:
Please comment on it. Regrettably I do not have the time to write nice role playing letters.
Separate names with a comma.
