    updates may be (further) delayed while I recover from something called "Golfers Elbow", which makes using a mouse painful. No civ for at least a week! :sad:

    Saladin: Hello, infidel Churchill. It has been a while.

    Churchil: Not long enough. What do you want, besides all the Viking lands?

    Saladin: Philosophy?

    Churchill: Sure, why not.
    Spoiler :




    <Saladin leaves>

    Churchill: If he can make life difficult for Gustav Adolf, so much the better.

    Lady Astor: Agreed. Do you want to know what happened while you were away?

    Churchill: Nothing good, I'll bet.

    Lady Astor: A Great Artist was born in Celtia...

    Churchill: Sinead? Bono? These guys?
    Spoiler :




    Lady Astor: Nobody you had heard of. And Dido founded another city.

    Churchill: Confound that woman!

    <phone rings>

    Lady Astor: I'll get it. Hello?

    Dido: (purring) Hello, Lady Astor of England. Are you jealous of my huge....
    ... tracts of land?

    Lady Astor: Yes, that's all Winston and the others talk about. What do you want?

    Dido: Would you like to trade maps?

    Lady Astor: No.

    Dido: Would you like to sell us your maps?
    Spoiler :




    Lady Astor: Not at that price. Goodbye, vaguely foreign-looking strumpet!

    <dial tone>

    Lord Beaverbook: (sniffs) I would have talked with her if you wanted. I suppose now is a good time to tell you that Oxford University has been completed in London.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Huzzah! What do we win?

    Lord Beaverbook: Win?

    Churchill: Isn't there a quest in this game where you get a reward when you build a Wonder in the city it's real-life equivalent is in?

    Lord Beaverbook: Sadly, no. Which is why I suggest we use IKB to rush the Statue of Liberty in... Oxford.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Do it. Any other news?

    Lady Astor: Our population exceeds 50 million persons.

    Churchill: Huzzah!

    Lady Astor: And Tokugawa-

    Churchill: Tojo.

    Lasy Astor: -has adopted Mercantilism.

    Churchill: Figures. General Montgomery and Admiral Nelson, report!

    Nelson: The Jolly Walter has sunk another Viking Trireme. But more importantly, the Japanese are pursuing our ships into San Francisco Bay. A battle between the Japanese and an American squadron appears imminent.
    Spoiler :





    Monty: Our Hussars are attacking the inconveniently situated barbarian city of Jute.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Do we have a Colonist ready to resettle those lands?

    Monty: No. But we will soon.

    Lady Astor: And Wang Kon phoned. Since he's inconsequential, I see no reason not to trade him Rice for 2g/turn.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Fine. It'll annoy Stalin, but he has been no help against the Japanese or the Germans, anyway.

    Nelson: Prime Minister, our Frigates have engaged the Japanese in the seas offshore of Plus Lake!
    Spoiler :





    Churchill: And?

    Nelson: (somewhat crestfallen) HMS Agamemmnon sank the Galleas Satsuma, but HMS Artemis was lost.

    Lady Astor: Galleases are +50% vs Frigates, Winston.

    Churchill: Seems we will need first-raters in the war versus Japan, or Ironclads. Is there better news out there?

    Lady Astor: The Irish have destroyed Byzantium.

    Churchill: Were we friends with Justinian? I can't remember.

    Lady Astor: And we founded Winchester.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Take that, Dido!

    Nelson: Prime Minister, I report that our American allies have fought an inconclusive skirmish in San Francisco Bay:
    Spoiler :




    Our scouts located the Japanese survivors, but they are still too strong to safely attack. And HMS Agamemmnon is retreating for repairs.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: (exasperated) Are there no Cradocks in our officer corps? I need to make a call.

    <dials>

    Logan: Hello?

    Churchill: Hello, funny looking heathen! Would you like to learn Guilds for 80g?

    Logan: Yes please!

    Churchill: Fine, goodbye!

    <hangs up>

    Churchill: That'll keep Stalin occupied with him a while longer.

    Lady Astor: Winston, we have learned Biology.

    Churchill: Finally, our stagnant cities can grow again! York hasn't been able to run many specialists of late.

    Lady Astor: And now we should research...?

    Churchill: Gas Turbine.

    Lady Astor: Not Corporation, which India and Carthage can both learn?

    Monty: Not Rifling, to gain an advantage in firepower for our expeditionary forces?

    Churchill: No, neither. We don't want to obsolete the Great Lighthouse, on which our empire's prosperity is built. And surely, General Montgomery, we should build more Redcoats, which can be upgraded into Pinch Riflemen in future?

    Lord Beaverbook: (sniggering) Yeah, Shirley.

    Lady Astor: (sighing) In other news, Ho and Boudica each founded new cities. Ho also captured the last Egyptian stronghold; Hatshepsut is reported missing.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: That's a picture of the ocean. Although Hatty is little, so I suppose I can see how one could lose track of her.

    Lady Astor: Stalin asked us to go to war with the Iroquois. We declined.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Stalin won't help us; we won't help him. Simple. Admiral Nelson?

    Nelson: Our Scouting Force has retreated to San Francisco harbour in the face of superior forces.
    Spoiler :




    <CHURCHILL sighs, deeply>

    Monty: An overview of the Viking continent seems to be called for at this point.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Those Clams, Sugar, and Silk would be nice to have, after Gustav and Saladin bleed each other to death.

    Lord Beaverbook: I can report that London has reached its maximum size.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: I can just picture what that commute is like. Lady Astor, any developments?

    Lady Astor: Mao has founded another city. And we met this heathen:
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Ugh, another one? Can he even speak?

    Lady Astor: Well enough to solicit a gift of Civil Service. The Mayans can be another thorn in the Vikings' side.

    Churchill: Makes sense. Lord Beaverbook, what was that weird beam of light shooting out of Oxford?

    Lord Beaverbook: Sir Winston, we have completed the Statue of Liberty!
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Splendid! I'm sure Franklin won't mind, considering that there can't be much liberty in New York with the Japanese on their doorstep.

    Nelson: The Irish seem to have grown tired of the privateering in their waters; they are pursuing the Jolly George with malicious intent
    Spoiler :




    In addition, our Scouting Force is now calling for assistance in the face of overwhelming odds
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: So send more ships!

    Monty: We continue to maintain a defense force off the shores of our northern colonies, and these ships are also needed to defend the force of transports which will move our northern expeditionary force to aid the Americans. None of these ships can be spared!

    Nelson: After the failure of the army to be prepared for the last Japanese invasion, and with China's navy unaccounted for, our ships must guard our shores, Sir Winston. In any event, our Frigates were overmatched by Japan's Galleases.

    Churchill: So bring up the cruiser squadron that is patrolling near Richmond! If we cannot win control of the seas off Japan, we cannot aid America.

    Lady Astor: Speaking of which, Roosevelt just canceled the deal we had for his Wine.

    Churchill: No more 2-buck Chuck? Let me make some calls...

    <dials>

    Gandhi: Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed. Greetings, Churchill the Oppressor.

    Churchill: Yes, about that. Would you give us some money?
    Spoiler :




    Gandhi: Nope.

    Churchill: You're a lousy colony, India. <hangs up>

    <redials>

    Boudica: Hello?

    Churchill: Ah, Boudi! How's my little Irish colleen?

    Boudica: What do you want, Winston?

    Churchill: Your Wine for our Fish?
    Spoiler :




    Lord Beaverbook: (interjecting) Irish wine is a step down from even American wine, Sir Winston!

    Boudica: (ignoring him) Sure. Anything else?

    Lord Beaverbook: How about we give you our Banana every turn, and you pay us for the privilege?
    Spoiler :




    Boudica: You've got a deal. In fact, in the picture above, I am literally throwing money at you.

    Churchill: It'll have to do.

    <hangs up>

    Lady Astor: That was a nice piece of negotiation, Lord Beaverbook's clumsy innuendo's notwithstanding.

    Lord Beaverbook: Over and over again. Every turn.

    Lady Astor: Ew.

    Churchill: If you thought that was nice, check this out.

    <dials>

    Stalin: Здравствуйте, Churchill! What can you do for the Motherland today?

    Churchill: Yes, about that: We're canceling that Clams for 10g/turn deal.

    Stalin: Capitalist oppressor!

    Churchill: Goodbye until you have more cash flow, Uncle Joe! <hangs up>

    <dials>

    Gandhi: Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. Hello again, Winston Churchill.

    Churchill: Hello, Mo. Would it be harmonious to offer you Clams in exchange for 22g/turn?
    Spoiler :




    Gandhi: It is health that is real wealth, and not pieces of gold or silver.

    Churchill: You said that already.

    Gandhi: So I did.

    Churchill: I'll take that as a yes. Goodbye, Mohandas!

    <hangs up>

    Churchill: Poor fellow; he's always wearing the same suit as the Roman chap. I almost feel guilty exploiting him.

    <CHURCHILL, LADY ASTOR, and LORD BEAVERBOOK all laugh>

    Nelson: Our entirely unaffiliated Privateers, the Jolly Walter and Jolly Arthur, continue to sink Viking Triremes.
    Spoiler :





    Churchill: How odd. Perhaps we should issue a travel advisory for Scandinavia! Lady Astor, any diplomatic news?

    Lady Astor: Julius Ca-

    Churchill: Mussolini.

    Lady Astor: -esar has founded another city.

    Churchill: These Italians aren't as lazy as I was led to believe they were.

    Lord Beaverbook: Coventry has completed a Fireworks Festival.

    Churchill: A what? No picture?

    Lord Beaverbook: Just ones of Dido at the beach.

    Churchill: (sighs) OK. What does it do?

    Lord Beaverbook: It makes people happy.

    Churchill: ...even after the show is over?

    Lord Beaverbook: Yes.

    Churchill: This makes no sense. (turning away) Admiral! Report!

    Nelson: The Jolly George has sunk an Irish Caravel, Prime Minister.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: (shakes head) Oh, those pirates. Someone should put a stop to them, I'm sure.

    Nelson: Indeed. And per your instructions, the HMS Good Hope and HMS Monmouth are proceeding east towards Japanese waters.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: This seems ominous for some reason, but never mind. General Montgomery?

    Monty: The English army awaits the opportunity to engage the Japanese in battle, Sir Winston. In the meantime, we, and our audience, can review these maps of our neighbours to the east, the Carthagines, Ro- ...er, Italians, and Irish.
    Spoiler :





    Churchill: Fine work, General. I find the Italian expansionism worrying, though, particularly their proximity to Blackpool and Gibraltar.

    Montgomery: A force is at sea to secure Blackpool and subdue the barbarian settlement of Burgundian to its north.

    Churchill: And someone should stitch together all these maps and colour the English lands pink!

    Montgomery: I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that, Sir Winston.

    Nelson: Prime Minister, the Jolly Arthur continues to cull the Viking Trireme presence on their coastline.
    Spoiler :




    And there are unconfirmed reports of the Jolly George sinking another Irish Caravel.

    Churchill: Unconfirmed?

    Nelson: Someone forgot to take a screenshot.

    Churchill: Ah.

    Nelson, Monty: The British Expeditionary force has embarked off Carlisle!
    Spoiler :




    Nelson: The Navy will do its duty in delivering the army to the aid of our American friends, after which the army must rise to the occasion.

    Monty: (darkly) The Army will do its duty, if the navy can get us there in one piece.

    Churchill: Very good, gentlemen. Have we any current intelligence of the enemy and allied dispositions?

    Lady Astor: Of course we do. The Japanese are threatening Boston with an impractically mixed stack
    Spoiler :




    And it would seem that Roosevelt has more than sufficient forces to hold the city:
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Indeed he does! I wonder that America continues to lose this war, with an army this size. Of course, the English gift of Musket technology would have stiffened their resistance.

    Roosevelt: (yelling, from a great distance) It's not as if you've done anything else to help!

    Lady Astor: Commerce continues amid the drumbeat of war, Winston. Boudica founded a city, and I negotiated a Dye trade to Russia for 11g:
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: I'm impressed that you made Stalin blush, Lady Astor.

    <Lord Beaverbook giggles>

    Lady Astor: (impassively) And we refused a gift of Guilds to the Vikings.

    Churchill: Well done; no need to give them a technological advantage over the Arabs and Mayans. General Montgomery, shall we continue the overview of foreign lands?

    Monty: Yes. This is the Hong Kong territory, and Russian lands to the west:
    Spoiler :





    Churchill: Have we made any progress in reinforcing the colony?

    Monty: Yes, Sir Winston. A convoy bearing Workers and several military units arrived this turn.
    Spoiler :




    We will, at the least, connect the three cities for mutual defensive assistance. For now, the Vietnamese cities to the north have small garrisons only, but that may change, of course.

    Nelson: With the Navy focused on the Japanese threat, we will be hard pressed to further reinforce the Hong Kong colonies.

    Churchill: If we improve the hills around The Mumbles - seriously, what does that name even mean? - the colony will be able to produce its own defensive militia.

    <The telephone rings>

    Churchill: England speaking.

    Caesar: Hello, Winston of England! Would you teach us Democracy?

    Churchill: Democracy? DEMOCRACY?? It's too late for that, Mussolini! Where was Democracy in Abyssinia? And in Spain?

    Caesar: ??
    Spoiler :




    <Churchill slams down phone>

    Lady Astor: That was intemperate, Winston. And by the way, we have discovered Gas Turbine. If you are done frothing at the mouth, would you care to offer a suggestion for our next tech?

    Churchill: (breathing hard) Electricity.

    Lady Astor: Very well. In case you were growing fond of Gustav-

    Churchill: I wasn't.

    Lady Astor: Good plan. Our military intelligence shows powerful Mayan and Arab forces arrayed against the Vikings.
    Spoiler :





    Monty: Their armies are obsolete, Sir Winston, but there are a lot of them. I recommend we reinforce our Falkland colony N of the Viking territories, now that Hong Kong has a garrison worthy of the name.

    Churchill: That's probably a good idea.

    Lady Astor: In other diplomatic news, we declined Vietnam's request to go to war against Mali, and renegotiated our Deer trade with them.
    Spoiler :






    Churchill: I love that beaten-down expression on Ho's face in the last image.

    Lady Astor: He's already annoyed with us, so that Hong Kong garrison may be tested soon.

    Nelson: The Jolly George has sunk another Celt Caravel.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: If only our real navy was as aggressive against the Japanese as our Privateers are against neutrals, Admiral!

    Monty: Dido has something you should see, Sir Winston.

    Churchill: We've all seen them already, General.

    Monty: Not those. This.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: That's... that's quite a stack. Looks like Burgundian will be a Carthagine possession - we don't have the troops in Blackpool to get there first.

    Lord Beaverbook: (sniggers) Stack.

    Lady Astor: Are we sure she's not plotting against us, General?

    Monty: Fairly sure, Lady Astor. Look at that green smiley face next to Carthage on the scoreboard!

    Churchill: I'm convinced. Where are the Japanese?

    Nelson: The Japanese fleet is concentrated in New York, Prime Minister.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Excellent, those ancient ships will be no match for our Armored Cruisers, and little threat to the EEF and its transports.

    Nelson: And our privateering captains continue to purge the Viking seas. The Jolly Walter has sunk another Trireme.
    Spoiler :




    Churcchill: Jolly good. Lady Astor?

    Lady Astor: We have founded Hull, Winston.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Very good; we are making good use of all land on our island.

    <A TRUMPET sounds>

    Churchill: What the hell was that?

    Dido: (shouting loudly across the tundra north of Blackpool) I have stood enough insolence and innuendo from you and your ministers, Winston Churchill. #MeToo, you b*******.
    Me
    F******
    Too!


    The southern continent shall belong to Carthage, alone!

    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Not big enough for both of us? What about that creep Mussolini, right next to you?

    <The tramping of marching Musketmen and the heavy tread of elephant feet drowns out any further dialogue between England and Carthage>

    Churchill: Well. Ahem. (to Lord Beaverbook) Well, you've certainly made a hash of our relations with Dido, Max.

    Lord Beaverbook: Me?? I'm the Minister of Production, and our production is unmatched, Sir Winston! Blame Lady Astor, she's the Foreign Minister!

    Lady Astor: The Carthagines evidently viewed our establishing Blackpool and the base at Gibraltar on their continent as an unacceptable provocation.

    Churchill: Evidently. Can we defend Blackpool?

    Monty: It's doubtful, Sir Winston. We had reinforced the city with Cannon in anticipation of further foot soldiers and cavalry being deployed later from Gibraltar. Our Cannon would hold up well against Carthagine siege weapons, but their sheer numbers might be too great, and we have nothing to counterattack with.
    Spoiler :




    Nelson: The Navy will evacuate the Workers that were developing the lands around Blackpool, Prime Minister
    Spoiler :




    We do not have enough ships to evacuate the entire army at Blackpool, although we could embark four veteran units to fight another day
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Let me think about that one.

    Nelson: Of course, Prime Minister. And let me remind you that Britannia still rules the seas, and as the land route to Gibraltar is impassable, the base itself should remain secure.

    Churchill: Good show, Admiral.

    Monty: While we may not be able to hold Blackpool, the English Army will fight to the last to defend the city if so ordered. And one of our Pathfinders has already begun a guerrilla campaign against the Carthagines, killing 2 of their Workers
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: War is hell, gentlemen. Speaking of which, we will clearly not be settling more land near Blackpool until some sort of resolution is reached with Carthage. Accordingly, please have our Dragoons take Jute and burn it, to deny it to the Carthagines.

    Monty: Gladly, Sir Winston.
    Spoiler :





    It is done. Our Cuirassier will maintain a watch on the southern ithsmus between the continents, by the Marble deposit, to ensure Dido does not attempt to invade along that path.

    Churchill: Excellent; we must safeguard against an attack by stealth. (sighs, turning to the Viscountess Astor) Lady Astor, I must regretfully ask you to seek a peace settlement with the Chinese.

    Lady Astor: Our envoys have negotiated the following terms with China:
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: (sighs again) Well, it'll have to do. But if Mao attacks America again, I fear the war will have to be renewed.

    <the phone rings>

    Churchill: Hello?

    Logan: Hello, England! Will you go to war with Russia for us?
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Perhaps you hadn't noticed, but England's a little busy now! <slams down phone>

    Churchill: This war is your fault, Lady Astor! Your snide comments to Dido have no doubt poisoned our relations!

    Lady Astor: (unperturbed) I don't know what you're complaining about, Winston. For all your posturing about the Germans, Italians, and Japanese, the Carthagines are clearly our biggest rival for global hegemony. Dido's army is larger than ours, and she has the second highest city count in the world. War was bound to come sooner or later.

    Nelson: And at any rate, Prime Minister, the Carthagines have no means by which to invade. Our mercenary captains have left Dido's admirals without a fleet.

    Churchill: Very well... but what about Blackpool?

    Monty: Oh, Blackpool's lost, Sir Winston. Our forces on the continent are being evacuated by sea
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Well, at least that's somewhat historically accurate.

    Monty: Unfortunately, some will have to be left behind. They will fight to the last shell, I'm sure.

    Lady Astor: Meanwhile, in Australia, the Mayans have captured the Viking city of Haithabu
    Spoiler :




    Nelson: And the English Expeditionary Force is nearing America. I don't believe the Japanese naval forces can threaten us, Prime Minister.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: And I didn't believe it last time, when Japanese Galleasses sank HMS Artemis and badly mauled the Agamemmnon!

    Monty: Sir Winston, the Battle of Blackpool has begun...
    Spoiler :




    Our Cannon attempted to weaken the Carthagine stack, but was destroyed by a Carthagine Knight.

    Spoiler :



    Our gallant soldiers managed to destroy an enemy Musket and Bombard, and, in a dramatic coup of arms, the Hungarian Cannon, pictured above!




    Sadly, the city has fallen, and Dido's forces put it to the torch. Nonetheless, the destruction of the great Cannon makes this a pyrrhic win for the Carthagines.

    Churchill: The men of Blackpool shall not be forgotten. In the meantime, though, the evacuees should be sent to reinforce Gibraltar.

    Monty: As you say, Sir Winston.

    Lady Astor: I have some news, Winston. We have discovered Electricity.

    Churchill: Excellent. And now we must learn Rifling. Even though Rifling makes our Redcoats seem quaint.

    Monty: Rifling would allow both Cavalry and Riflemen.

    Lasy Astor: And we have Leonardo's Workshop, and 4000 gold on hand.

    Churchill: I see where you're going here, and I like it. What other news, Lady Astor?

    Lady Astor: We founded Damascus.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Huzzah! Send in the press gangs.

    Lady Astor: Also, Boudica founded another city.

    Churchill: Of course she did, fecund wench that she is.

    Lady Astor: And I turned down a Korean request for Open Borders.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Good idea, Wang's useless. Might as well call him a capon, what?

    <Lord Beaverbook guffaws obsequiously>

    Churchill: On that note, let me make a call. <dials>

    Pacal: Hello?

    Churchill: Put some clothes on and listen to this, Moe. How would you like an obsolete tech for all your gold and maps?

    Pacal: I'd love it!
    Spoiler :



    <hangs up>

    Lady Astor: Excellent troll of the Vikings, Winston. Incidentally, Gandhi has evacuated his colonizers from the Australian continent
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: It might be getting a little dangerous there for a peacemonger like Mohandas.

    Monty: And for us, Sir Winston. We have been playing the Arabs and Mayans against Gustav, but the eventual victor will turn on us, and our defenses there are as thin as parsley!

    Churchill: Weird, you reminded me of someone there.

    Monty: Sir Winston, the English Expeditionary Force has landed in America!
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Good show! I hope Franklin is reassured.

    Roosevelt: (faintly) Still need some help here!

    Nelson: And after landing the troops, our ships fought the Second Battle of San Francisco Bay
    Spoiler :



    Here we see HMS Black Prince sinking a Caravel


    Our fleet sank 2 Cogs and 2 Caravels, without loss to ourselves, Prime Minister.

    Churchill: Well done, but beware the Galleasses. And a sudden appearance of Frigates. A mass upgrade could cause us to lose control of the sea lanes around America.

    Monty: The Unknown Pathfinder has died a gallant death, but not without taking another Carthagine Pathfinder down with him.
    Spoiler :




    Churchill: Carthagine perfidy! You will be avenged, unit I didn't bother to name!

    Lady Astor: Winston, we have discovered Rifling.

    Churchill: Excellent - now Research Artillery.

    Monty: An excellent choice, Sir Winston. Massed Artillery would have saved Blackpool, or at the least, sold the city more dearly.

    Lady Astor: I also dealt with these two losers:

    Spoiler :




    Lady Astor: We were just at war, and I see no reason to teach you how to make better ships! Begone!
