To 25 AD --- rather boring, infra building and tech whoreing phase.... Well capitol kept doing three pop whip settlers and where was also ton of lighthouses and workboats. Just 4 workers although.... which makes me sad. Got to all planned spots. Spoiler : It is rather reasonable spot, just unsure if it makes main goals faster. Probably not worth bothering. At 825 BC Egyptian creative traded me maths for Aesthetics. Asoka played along plan building Paya and jumping into free religion. That sort of ended Hindu block although I guess it will eventually cause faster global tech, sigh. Still maybe giving him access to Aesthetics was not in vain. At 600BC our first GS was born. Ended thinking quite some time about him. Academy would have been nice, but I was till whipping cap. also quite a chance of second great person being merchant [which it was -- did quite nice mission in Egypt lands.] So I ended bulbing philo to block AI from lib path and tyo allow some spiritual patches of running pacifism+caste. At 125BC egypt built AP and i voted for Issy since she was so afraid of Celtic tech advantage... took +12 visible to get her to friendly, heh. did some map extrade which showed missing AI - romans Spoiler : guess could have found earlier As far as I am concerned Julius can live in his judaism corner for quite some time. Some notes about Egypt Land Spoiler : Very long patch, which can be attacked nicely from couple points.... Wonders Spoiler : She built Mids at 800BC and all the time run US? Jesus, that is so dumb. So memphis is must have city as is Thebes at least for AP control. Techs: Spoiler : Well surely I plan to cuirasiers [note: ought to have built city on silver. third ring horses is just unacceptable.]. Thing is as soon as NE is done [calculated 75AD] I am gonna run longish patch of pacifism+caste. So either do some back filling - archery/HBR/music [although i can always get archery/HBR from friendly Issy at later day] and two bulbs -- education and lib. Or self tech education, bulb lib and wait to see if Ai techs nationalsim while i deal with stuff like gunpowder. Although safest probably would be - self tech Nationalism while bulbing Edu and Lib, could also get through Drama>Music but I don't think I get much if anything in return. Plan with nationalism is probably best as I would need at least few AI to have it and likely wonder to be gone to get in trade. It also probably worst one if I pop another merchant.... Hasnibal went into fist mode like last turn... I would guess he is against egypt. Issy been planning for long time... probbaly something she can't reach by land... like Julius?
