I have received this from Count Goldberg of Elysium: GaryNemo, Minister of the Interior, My minions in Gabba Gabba please me well. They function tirelessly at Size=2 with no guards, perhaps because they are safely in our interior. The same is true of the Baron of Bedfont Lakes. I heard that The People may finally approve your old plan to found F4, a similar settlement even closer to our Great Capital. That The People will not build the Boreum River Bend Bridge Filler is completely beyond my comprehension. I offer to add my support, but I am not sure how to help you with this proposal. The extra Road feature of that site is very clear, and seems to make it particularly desirable. But, I preach to the choir. Castle Jayne is functioning well at Size=3 with a Temple, no police, even with 2 BlackDude malcontents. Why do we not seriously consider this option for other cities? On the other hand, CJ is exposed to attack by the Indians. We hear from our partners in Dellham that they have a Temple, 2 Archer Guards, and the now typical 2 BlackDude contingent. Two other things, milord. Surely other people besides myself have heard of our astounding recent Diplomatic victory at The Udal. These two items are equally shocking: 1. Our electorate does not recognize the value of the Diplomats, and provide one as Captain of every Trireme. 2. We have foreign infestation throughout the West and North, and our General Staff is silent! I wish to apologize personally for the recent riot here, milord. The problem has been rectified, and the needed police from Gabba Gabba will be treated well. We of Elysium realize our special status, that we are responsible for more productivity than other cities, and express our sincere regret of this unfortunate incident. Your Supporter in Productivity, Count Goldberg of Elysium.
