    I thought we already had a no trade clause with Piffle? We'd have to backstab someone to do that.

    Piffle will have to sign off on any deal with Loco – but that shouldn't be a problem as long as we share Constitution with them.

    I don't think we want to even offer a no-trade clause to Loco. It would require lying to someone (either Piffle or Loco) and either way it's not a good lie, as they'd both be able to see Constitution change hands if they're even slightly paying attention.

    Main problem here is that Loco and Innovia appear to have a tech alliance, and are both missing the exact same techs. Anything we give to Loco will certainly fall directly into Innovia's hands.

    I wouldn't be opposed to letting Loco/Innovia get Economics(1400) or Liberalism(1400)… but there's no way Loco is going to trade Constitution(2000) for either of those. And I'm not sure I'd want to trade away both.

    So I guess my vote, at this time, would be against making any offer.

    Good point we can sue them for it when they get down to one city.

    However I still think we can send a friendly letter thier way (part to mask our intention :evil:) and say something like: "wow seems like you recovered expertly from the war, are you interested in doing business with us once again?"

    yeah, I can see the value of that.

    Here's a draft...
    EDIT: Sent to Loco Gmail - title: "Congrats and Trade?"

    That's not plagiarism… that's flattery :) ;)

    Good point – I'd better start working up some kind of announcement video or post.

    Any ideas?

    Epsilon acts to thwart LOCO aggression?
    Epsilon Liberates our LOCO brothers enslaved by government secretly controlled by Innovia?

    I like the direction of #2.

    A video might be too much time as, the save (and war Declaration) will be in at the longest 4 days.

    However we don't want to make Innovia too angry...

    Epsilon Team has compiled a lengthy list of grievances against Team Loco. We are broadcasting it in all 5 languages of the planet Sirian.

    Disclaimer: some of the epic prose may have been lost in translation.

    View the video here


    It would be awesome to replace some of the intro with game-specific content, but I don't know how good General_W's editing program is.

    Genius.

    I love it :clap:

    Now If the General Could Edit somewhere in that video the word "base" on X amount of the shots to read each of the Loco cities....that would be spectacular....(Starting of course with Mycenia the one we will take in 4 turns :evil:)

    That pic of the Earth should be replaced with the Globe, hovering over Loco, no? (of course Epsilon's tags will be deleted ;))

    Replace CATS with THE LEADER

    I could help generate some of the graphics once I'm back at work in a couple days.

    That's totally brilliant Dave! :lol:
    (and good idea on the "base" names Memphus)

    Editing it could be tricky though… I might be able to do a series of screenshots, I think that would work ok. I'll have to see if I can find that audio though.

    I'll get started on this direction, and let you know how it goes! :thumbsup:

    "Somebody set up us the bomb"

    (fake battle log of cannons bombarding Mycenian)


    "In AD 1401, war was beginning."

    (Approximate time the assault on Mycenian begins)

    These are great! Keep them coming!

    @Peter – I'll start a thread here when I get my first round of graphics done. If you (or anyone else) wants to contribute to that, that'd be sweet! :)

    Well, looks like LOCO was at least partly ready for us... looks like our attack won't be a total cake walk.

    Well Yes and No. My Prediction is the Loss of 1 cannon. Although we knew they didn't have any crazy advanced troops.

    But Like I said maybe this is all of defense? Because in the north thier troops (2 Units) in pretty weak.

    Moving an idea Memphus raised here to the lonely diplomacy threads...

    Once Mycenaean comes out of Revolt, I think we ought to rename it.

    How about naming Loco's towns after the actives on our team, members picking which town they want in approximate order of activity?

    Ie – Memphus gets first choice… if he wants to take Mycenian, cool. Of if he'd rather wait to have Loco's former capital named after him, or whatever.
    Then DaveMcW
    Then PeterGrimes
    Then Me
    Then Classical Hero
    (Then Kylearan? Maybe that new town in LOCO land we're going to found?)

    Name Ideas:
    Memphus' Metro
    DaveMcW's Dominion
    PeterGrimes' Palace
    General_W's Grotto
    Classical Hero's Hold
    Kylearan's Lurk


    What do we think of that?

    Also – I'm working on a story of bravery and such… I'll post more when I'm further along.
