    Problem with that, n0xie, is that all our British holdings have 6 or 7 "yearning for the homeland" unhappiness. That won't go away until Vicky does.

    I have seen the situation where the game doesn't realize a civ is dead until the turn after you have killed it off. Did you hit enter after (you thought) you took her last city?

    Hey Fox, how come you badger me in Fox03 six hours after you post the save, but Paul get four-and-a-half days in RNGod? I expect equal-opportunity prickdom from my fearless leaders.

    RNGod sad with minions :(

    Now you are questioning my integrity? :<
    :lol:

    Actually I have been pressurizing both: For you, I would say "You do realize that, this means you are UP." For Paul, I would tease him on his never-ending "tonight".

    And 4-and-half day is exaggerating ... you posted your report on Apr 30 6:35AM (my time), and its only close to 50hrs.

    But enough is enough, his 48hrs report time is ending in 3 hrs. n0xie you can take it if paul don't report by the time you can get it.

    Ok so the punishment for not playing for 3 days is to whip all players right?

    No, just Fox. For once, it's not me holding things up. Now then, will someone please go kill horse-face?

    Edit:

    How exaggerated does that seem now, Mr. Integrity? Huh? :p

    My apologies all. My sister lost her 8-month old child on Monday night. I've been staying with family with no access to CIV or internet, but am returning home tonight. Please skip me, I will be back on deck in a day or so.

    Again, my apologies.

    Paul, I am sorry for your lost. I suspected something urgent might have happened. No problem on the skip.

    I have already stated n0xie should take the save yesterday. Since its pass the 24hrs and n0xie has yet to post a got-it, guess that means I am up.

    However, because my home comp's graphic card is refusing to operate in 3D accelerated mode, I can only play on my office laptop. Thus, in order not to slow things further, I am throwing the roster out of the window, and anyone (except rex, who had just played) can post a got it if he can play and report in 4 hrs.

    Not-a-Roster
    - Rex = Just Played
    - (GreyFox | Dantski | n0xie | omni_paul) = (can play in 4hrs) ? UP : On-Deck

    Found Vicky

    The previous player must certainly go for eyesight check-up: Vicky is located within seconds of me loading the save ...



    But it has 2 redcoats there ... so I spend all my 5 turns moving troops there. Next player can finish her.


    Researching

    All I did was cancel all culture funding to be channelled to research for faster achieving of RNGod's goal. This must have touched His Random Holiness, and he bestowed us with a scientist, which I promptly joined to further our research speed ...



    All Hail the RNGod :worship:

    Finally, we have reached the modern era in 1920, right at the end of my turnset:



    You know what that means, right? I get to roll!


    Roll Dice

    Your Holiness, please gave me a sign ...



    5x1: Get something for free from other Civ

    That is easy, I contacted vicky, signed peace for so many gold ... done.

    ...

    :mischief:

    ...

    ...

    ...

    Or did I?

    ...

    :mischief:

    ...

    ...

    ...

    Nah, I am not that stupid.
    I contacted Nappy, and demanded a tribute .... to my holy random surprise: he agreed!



    Okay. Fine.

    So no war with Nappy ...

    ...

    ...

    ... yet.

    Remember, I fullfilled the objective (in record time of 0 turn). .. so that means ...

    Roll again!



    1x6: Capture or Found 3 more cities

    :woohoo: Goodbye, Nappy. Its fun fighting the English with you. Now its your turn.

    No. Not allowed to discuss such non-random concepts. Kill horse-face! That's all you need to know. :p Oh, and if you find time, bring the whooping to Nappy, too.

    Nice to have you aboard, Chris with a lithp.

    Whoops, just saw this:
    :blush:

    Ok, so I have 3 cities to found/capture. If I'm reading it correctly, we're at war with Liz, but not with Nappy.
