@Darkening:You want to break the treaty already? Read clause 3. It says Davar is not to interfere in the matters of these states. And you already signed it. @SB: I'm just staying IC. Shalamari is wary of Gerber, and cannot trust them the same way they trust Gorin or Khemri. The reason for this is for the most part the fact that the alliance was signed as a reaction to our peaceful CULTURAL expansion. We gave you the gifts of literature through Shaal (I believe these are still in use in both Nkondi and Gerber... Iggy?) and you answer by allying and increasing your armies. It's just not nice. Anyway, Shalamari is still only "reluctant". We take pride in not judging nations based on their political system or religion. If you indeed prove to be worthy allies, maybe Gerber can join the CRA in some fashion or other. But for now, no.
