    Governor of BW Instructions
    While trusting the DP implicitly, here are my instructions to myself.

    -Worked forested hill instead of plains hill.
    -Always work cottages unless something else has supreme need
    -work tiles with a total of 3 production for settler or more (add hammers and bread)
    -Settler shouldn't be finished this turnset so no build orders
    -No specialists during this turnset

    Worker instructions will come later or from Min. of Interior

    • If a promotion is available for a warrior woodsman I and II are preferred for better defense and scouting ability.

    @ Whomp, I presume that by "warrior" in your last instruction, you are referring to either a warrior or scout.

    Maintain 100% science rate, unless forced to lower it by negative GPT and an empty treasury. (shouldn't be possible)

    In the extremely unlikely event that the settler is produced early (shouldn't be possible) it can be moved towards our southern cultural border, but stop at least one plot inside the visibility range unless the SoW has provided an escort unit. Again, this shouldn't be possible but don't want to force a play stoppage if it's not needed.

    There is no legal definition of a limit on the number of turns to be played, but it is traditional to play 10 turns. That said, it is also traditional to extend play beyond 10 turns if such an extension doesn't exceed the depth of prepared instructions, and will determine information needed for forum discussion. For example, if we are 2 turns from completing Bronze Working at the end of 10 turns, the science discussion depends on knowledge of whether we have bronze. If there are enough instructions from all areas it is permissible to play the extra 2 turns to find out where the metals are.
    This is general guidance, the DP is given authority to extend play for similar situations.

    Since I'm not 100% sure where our warriors are currently placed (I still don't have a cartographer :( ) I would leave it to the turnplayers discretion which warrior is best suited to meet the settler. It is more important to get the 2nd city than continue to explore.

    I meant to hand the worker over to Tubby but sadly I am afraid that I am an idiot and thought MONDAY was the 4th. Who knows where that idea came from :p Anyway, it all worked out because tubby was DP anyway. Next instruction thread I will hand worker to you officially.
