Yep, and hope the barbarians kill the mongols. This is good! So, they won't just harass us to death from the beginning. If we can successfully run away and regroup; maybe the nasty mongols will settle down and we can get some common war goodwill. Great Plains Maps West: mountains, silver, gold, sheep, uranium, aluminum, dry, barbarians East: forests, corn, marble more likely Southeast: a bit of ocean, some jungles, forest Center: plains, horses, cows, wheat I trust that the mapmaker has made all directions equally viable, so we are probably in the center. What resources do we want? Horses or forests? Marble? Head in that direction. Or opposite direction from mongols.
