Yeah, I could not figure out what Askia is doing. He is hostile, and not for any good reason that I could tell. He will not take a bribe to DoW Dido (against our rules, but no harm checking). During my turn, I was kind of expecting him to DoW us. But he didn’t, and he never added to his fleet. Am I correct to recall that half the Songhai fleets is Triremes and Gallasses? XP for killing obsolete units is same as killing those that are contemporary. We have a few Frigates on their third Bombard promotion. Frigates with Logistics is pretty soon. And after Logistics, the Range promotion comes fast. I guess I am saying that you could DoW Askia if you feel like the siege of Carthage will take too long?
