    I hadn't realized we were planning on giving them 2 FW's. These units are pretty valuable, have we discussed any payment at all for them? Did they ask for this in advance of the T175 invasion? In general, I don't have a problem loaning or even gifting these units to our ally, but I am just wondering what the backstory is here. Also, would it hurt any of our own plans to lose 2 FW's at this point?

    I'm concerned about how we plan on getting any units over to CP in order to gift them. Are we sending them through RB? Is there any way we can get them on a boat to at least hide what we're sending?

    I'm fine with sending the graphs over to them. Are they asking for any graphs specifically? We could ask them to return the favor, but tbh we don't really need to see their graph or Poly's graph at this point, and those are the only teams we're missing.

    Ot4e asks for loan. I am not sure we can afford it, but even wont ask what it is for to not make him think we decline because we think it not benefits us.

    We need to answer their new terms for extending NAP and changing clauses too btw.

    In nutshell: NAP till t190 and after this, warning in advance clause of 20 turns can be activated. Means we have NAP to at least t210.

    We should give the loan if we can. Allies help each other.

    ot4e made clarification that even if we cant give money on t168, it is still good if we can give as much as we can from t169 in the next 2-3 turns.

    Are they still asking for fast workers and a missionary? What is the plan to get them those units? Right through RB?

    I say trough Uciv and Poly. At least for the FW will be not a problem at all. For the missionary... I dont know. Maybe only sane route which get him in time is trough RB?

    What you guys think about us converting 1-2-3 RB cities to our religion? We can have way easier visibility - especially on the borders. And possibly cheaper stealing?

    Chat with ot4e from yesterday:

    That is fair. We owe them 1 missionary anyway.

    And here is what we spoke with Ot4e today.

    Quite interesting (and emotional) things were said.

    Wow, long chat! Seems to have gotten contentious at a few points there. Having read it, I am satisfied that CP will do everything they can to contribute to the dogpile and our alliance in general. I hope we haven't pushed them away a little by making them feel like we doubt their commitment.

    I accepted this when I logged in:

    Our Fast Workers have embarked on a long and perilous migration to the land of CivPlayers:

    Spoiler :







    Hopefully they don't get killed or spotted by RB along the way :p

    Yes, it is a long, dangerous and lonely journey our fast workers are doing. This turn they are closing the wilderness of the borders of CivFR. Reminds me of someone with hairy feet :D

    Call me sentimental, but I regret the fact it has to be our fast worker "13" one of those to be sent to CP. I thought of him as somewhat talisman. :(

    We sent them with no escort? Not even a single chariot or Spy or explorer? Nothing:(?

    Any beer bets on whether they make it all the way to Mount Doom without the Nine catching them?:p

    No point on sending someone, no one runs as fast as FW.

    So Ot4e asked for loan. We already got 900 from him if our calculations are OK. But those money Ot4e was supposed to return to MZ, so I think we are owing those 900 to MZ.

    We must clarify this and decide if we give ot4e money.

    One consideration might be that ot4e asked MZ to forgive him his loan because of the heavy fighting Ot4e did with our enemy RB.

    What is our next tech goal after we get Grenadiers? I don't think we have anything urgent coming up, so lowering the slider to fund our ally seems fine to me. Do we have any idea what they need the money for?

    I think giving them the money to do the bulk of the fighting seems fair and much better for us anyway... Because if they relax at all on their front then RB will be free to focus on us, which we do not want..
