I am starting to see the writing on the wall, and I think there is only one solution here. We must ally with both CGN and Poly to ensure the removal of both GWT and GCA from the game. I realize that this plan should unfold carefully, but it should be done in the very near future. This will be a tall order since we and Poly are on different continents from the CGN/GWT war, but I think it can be done. And here's how: 1. One nation of the alliance builds the Lighthouse in one of its cities. 2. That nation then agrees to gift that city to either ourselves or Poly to get our Galleys across the water. 3. This city trade is continued until we all have enough troops in the West. This plan is just-hatched, so we first need to discuss it here, and then go thru all the proper diplomacy if the plan is found to have merit. If it does have merit, the Military Office will draft strategic plans to best facilitate this measure. GCA, and anyone who dares harbor them, must fall!
