    I hereby humbly request the administrator of this game to implement the following two house rules, effective immediately:

    *You may only change the civics of a civ if you have more espionage points against them than they have against you.

    *If a human is the vassal of another human, the master may demand one resource as tribute every turn. If the vassal does not comply they must break the capitulation at the soonest opportunity. The vassal may cancel every such tribute as soon as the game allows, meaning a master can only have a maximum of 10 resources sent for free by their vassal at any one point unless the vassal sends them voluntarily.

    1) You know where I stand on this. House rules make the game confusing. If you are worries about espionage being a problem, then you need to create more espionage.

    2) Also no on this one. First of all, its an always war game, I'm pretty sure vassals aren't an option. Even if they were, the vassal mechanics in the game are fine. Taking on a vassal is a big decision that should not be taken lightly, by either party.

    You are welcome!

    At least you have a religion now (albeit in one city). I have no idea why does it never spread to you by it's own? Could it be the Always War setting?

    Religions can only spread naturally from their respective holy cities, so any further spread of that religion will have to be done by missionary.

    I near my end in this game; a slow slog while playing the best as I was able in a game I entered as a replacement. Its had its moments of pleasure but I will resign on my next round in the game and allow the AI to manage my city or two with the 6 or 7 people that I may have remaining. :hatsoff:

    Great work as a fill in and a valient effort against the Filonian knights! Hopefully you held him off enough for the rest of us to attempt to catch up, though i doubt it if the rumors of rifling are true...

    It's not a rumour, I've got plenty of espionage against him to see it.

    Skellora, when you replay a turn, you need to delete the save file that was originally generated before you replay and generate a new save, otherwise we get errors. The file you uploaded is FOR Skellora, not FROM Skellora...

    I'm also going to email this to him.

    Pretty much, yes. Basically I did the same Muffin did to me in Instant Karma. Honestly it won't really make a difference, it's still gonna be Conquistadors versus Longbows, but I might just be able to get Muskets before I'm completely dead.

    Just be glad I snatched Liberalism or he would have Rifling now.

    Seriously am I the only one with Alphabet? Even with tech trading off you can still see what techs other players have and what they can research.
