- There are small groups of workers north of Delphi. My goal was to have a group take 2 turns to finish irrigating, when done they would go help the other group finish the chop, road and irrigate.
- The lone individual just got here after being captured near Argos. I do not not if it will help the other 2 groups’ efficiency. I planned on using it to just start roading a hill and have the other workers (after they finished irrigating) help finish the road and mine the hill.
- Byzantium: As you can see, needs the 2 units guarding it for the extra happy face. Thermopylae is building a Pikeman to replace the Catapult.
- The roading team north of Argos builds 1 turn roads.
- There are more than enough workers clearing the swamp at Athens to provide a 1 turn road team.
- There are 10 unmoved units north of Argos. They all are capable of moving onto but not past the enslaver at the Indochinese border.
- My guess is that the Golden Spearman on the border is on a “goto” and will run the Enslaver between turns.
- I have upgraded a few Cataphracts to Knights.
- The upgrade costs 30 gold.
