We have debated and discussed the notion of connecting the saltpeter located within our borders for the purposes of building musketmen. Now we must quantify this discussion. Immediately - We need to start construction of musketmen right away. Do not delay. No other worker task takes priority. As soon as feasible - We should connect it quickly, but we shouldn't interrupt our workers' progress in connection of the luxuries we're currently working to connect (ivory & gems). Within the next 10 to 20 turns - We should connect it when we get around to it and not before. We can use this time to produce more Pikes and then perform a mass upgrade to muskets later on. Never - Don't waste time on saltpeter. We should concentrate on making knights and pikes and wait for rifleman and eventually rubber (for infantry). Abstain - I have no opinion. I'm too busy focusing on something else, so everyone else decide for me. This poll will remain open for 72 hours.
