    Are they serious? Absolutely not into paying gpt on top of wines. This message makes me want to start planning how we can roll right through them with Poly's help after we take out the Zulu.

    It's nice that they shared the military Intel, though. That is mighty bold of the Spaniards to send so many troops to the other side of their land. Worked out for them though since they can now get their army back into position well before we want to attack them.

    Could it have been a reaction to us sending a Peace treaty offer (did we send that to SpAp)?

    Nope.

    This info about the zulu units moving is many turns old actually. At least 5-6.

    Who's cheif diplo contact vs Fr?

    Does anyone oppose OB with them?

    Edit - I see it's Bowsling that has talked to them before. And we've already discussed an OB vs Fr so that should be uncontroversial. Would be good to get the ball rolling asap.

    Yeah, let's definitely agree to ob asap, and also let them know they can send their merchant to our cap so they don't waste time having it sit around waiting for our answer.

    To answer their question about the Zulu war, I think we can even wrote some of the funnier lines from their emails to us to show they were the aggressors and they promised us war to the end of time.

    I do believe that they have some sort of relations with the Spaniards. If you look at the scores on one of the screenshots while we were at war, you can see the little trade icon next to civfr signifying that we had a connection the whole time to trade resources and get routes through ob, so there was no benefit in waiting until the war was over.

    2.WE will have GM too so we must ask to return to us the favor and tell us where is theyr ToA.
    3.how long those borders will be open.

    I think that the chapter about Zulus could be a bit better. You are laying out "the innocent victims" play a bit too thick, IMO. Don't forget that we are about to attack and crush Zulus soon. If we now tell CivFr "we just wanted to live in peace" and in 10-20 turns attack Zulus ruthlessly, I fear CivFr may get wary of us. Here is my take on the first chapter:
    Rest of the Sommerswerd's draft was great.

    Ooh, I really like that, Sommers. :goodjob:

    I'm fine with the first paragraph the way it is. It gives the impression that we were innocent victims, as you said, but it doesn't really deceive. We will be going to war in ten turns, which is a long time from now. Saying that we have no idea why they attacked us is true, and it doesn't exclude the possibility of counterattacking them.

    Bowsling, as ambassador I think you get final say over the message. Do you have access to our gmail account to send it off?

    I don't think so, no. Most people were offended that we should pay extra for their gems. If we want those gems bad, they want us to throw something else in on top of the wines.
