    That's quite a few dips (7 or8?). At least they don't require city support.

    Mr President, here is the report from Count Goldberg.

    Sir, it is not necessary to construct all of the Diplomats overnight.

    It is important for us to determine our expected cash flow. Do we really expect to fund the large investment of the purchase of a foreign city in the next 100 years, or not? -Gary Nemo


    GaryNemo, Minister of the Interior,

    Please thank President MonkE for the Horse Police.

    Elysium can create more profit with the operation of a MarketPlace. We are presently generating 4 gold, net of expenses. With a MarketPlace, that amount would increase to 6 gold, net of expense (9-3), and there may be other benefits as well. This one improvement will increase the net revenue of the Kingdom of NUF by 9.5%. With an upfront IPRB if $68, it is possible to construct the MarketPlace in only 8 turns, rather than the customary 14 turns. Or, with $44, 10 turns.

    Milord, I have asked my most capable manager, Herr Psychologist, to investigate the recent riots thruout our Kingdom of NUF. Although there is a disappointing lack of analysis, his report is attached.

    Your Supporter in Productivity,
    Count Goldberg of Elysium.

    Report of Herr Psychologist

    In 260AD, NUF has 1 Scientist, 5 Elvii, and 5 Celebrations.

    Some of our cities are Celebrating MonkE's reign.

    REGIA CIVITAS=5: HG Temple +2 Police, 4 Red + BlackDude
      Celebrating with 4 serfs + 1 Scientist.
    TFalls=3: Temple +1 War, 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes, Elvis
    Mordhiemia=3: Temple +1 Phx, 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes, Elvis
    Castle Jayne=3: Temple but no Police, 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes, Elvis
    Legendary City=3: No Temple 2 Police, 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes, Elvis

    RC & CJ have the customary Celebration Trade bonus, the 3 other cities do not. Perhaps we have looked too soon, milord.

    Others are particularly productive, without Elvis:
    Elysium=4: Temple +3 Police, 2 Red + 2 BlackDudes, grows in 42.
    Marl Downs=3: Temple + 2 Police, 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes
    Reneaux=3: Temple + 2 Police, 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes
    Dellham=3: Temple + 2 Police, 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes
    Civvium=3: Temple + 2 Police, 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes
    Little Nemo=2: no improvements nor police, 2 BlackDudes
    Gabba Gabba=2: no improvements nor police, 2 BlackDudes
    Bedfont Lakes=2: no improvments nor police, 2 BlackDudes

    Trouble:
    Eboracum=2: 2 BlackDudes, and about to grow! Uh oh!

    Red and Black Dudes:
    REGIA CIVITAS and Elysium are unusual, noted above.
    All Size=3 cities have 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes:
      TFalls, Civvium, Marl Downs, Mordhiemia, Octavia's Point, Reneaux, Dellham, Castle Jayne, Legendary City
    Most Size=2 cities have 2 BlackDudes:
      Little Nemo, Gabba Gabba, BedFont Lakes, Eboracum, Neuma, Monks Towne, Roskilde
      The Udal has 1 Red + 1 BlackDude.
    All Size=1 cities have 1 BlackDude:
      Fort Anarchy, Beast Flats, Polar City, Khorsabad
    There is no Content Population, and precious few merely Red.

    Observations:
    REGIA CIVITAS is precarious. Install another Police ASAP.
    Sometimes, adding Police makes no difference.
    Two Police, either a Temple or Elvis seems required,
      compare Legendary City with Civvium.

    I wish this made more sense to me,
    Respectfully Yours,
    Herr Psychologist
    Manager, Goldberg Enterprises

    Sir, my underlings had neglected one detail:

    The fifth Elvis is in Mordhiemia. This city is supporting one Settler, is about to complete a second Settler, and has no Temple.
    No Temple, No Police, 1 Red + 2 BlackDudes, Elvis

    General Summary Plan 260AD

    MonkE moves tonight, in about 12 hours.


    Keep Tax 30%, Science 70%, max Science.
      IPRB for efficiency and crisis only, until ...
      We are researching Monotheistic Mike's !
    Build Cop's in 2 turns, Rush Buy if necessary.
    Maybe build Mike's in REGIA CIVITAS, it's safe from Indians.
      Please stage Caravans one per square near RC.
    Maybe build Marco's somewhere, once Mike's is assured. RC?

    We need more units to drive out the Vikings. Neuma surely.
    Fort Anarchy: Change to Legion in 1? The waste is minor.
      If any form of Peace before EndOfTurn, then Caravan?

    We need Diplomats for Trireme Captains.

    We're leaving Khorsabad named asis for now. Map area.
    Rename Polar City: Frozen Toe or Penguin Flats as you wish.
    Instead of a Phx, Approved, how about a Warrior to search the South Pole, followed by an Archer? Good Idea?

    River Bridge is not a consideration at this time!
    However, a slight Silent Majority exists for Filler Cities.
    But if MonkE plays a turn when we build no cities, that is fine with the Majority, 8 of 11 votes, but very sad for your Domestic Advisor. So results are mixed.
    F4, Forest 3NW of REGIA CIVITAS, already Approved, had 5 of 11 votes. What does that mean?   When LN finishes its Settler in 10 turns, N NE to Forest the RC Special, N Finally Found F4?

    Boreum thoughts:

    So it seems the people want a mixture of mainly military and caravans to be produced although its possible that Marl Downs or another city could start building city improvements.

    OP should build a temple but there is less support for any more temples. If neccessary another trireme could be built but the people seem to want trirmemes built elsewhere or not at all.

    Eboracum: Temple 25/40 in 3. Hire Elvis with Whale.

    The Udal: IPRB $25 Phx is declined. Archer?
    Neuma: Change to Legion in 1 - approved or Catapult?
    Fort Anarchy: Change to Legion in 1? The waste is minor.

      We own 3 Triremes, this is the needed SW ship.

    Ren Settler completes COAL MINE,
      Then SE SE, Road on Hill W of Dellham.

    Other cities continue.
    Cities building Caravans: RC TFalls GG BFL Civ Mord DH Ren FA? CJ
    Marl Downs: building 2nd Settler? Caravan?
    Khorsabad: Settler?
    Roskilde is on plan, Settler in 5, Food 6/30.
      Found Fruit City on Forest @ Wounded Archer Guard.

    REGIA CIVITAS is precarious. Install another Police ASAP.
      Maybe BFL builds a Warrior or Crusader for RC?

    No Fillers, drat! Comments?
