    Preliminary poll results, of items which seem like winners:
    Keep tax rate 30,00,70% Max Science
    In 2 turns, hire Elvis, build another guard after Library
    Many people have voted for RC to build a MarketPlace.
      We can't build a Guard and a Marketplace simultaneously!
      That sounds odd to me. Please post in Regia Civitas poll.

    Little Nemo, change to produce a Settler in 8. IPRB=20 only $4
    Road the GrassLandShield, its current location - recommended

    As of now, founding F4 is defeated by a narrow margin:
    LN Settler, keep building roads - recommended by the duke
    Road Plains W W of RC (N of LN) - one of MonkE's Trade Roads

    The polls stay open Saturday, maybe even Sunday...

    As long as the roads are built, the path looks good to me, but the additional trade should only be 3 per city. It rounds down. It will, however, be lower once RC drops out of WLTLD. Which I think it will happen before the caravan is even built. Then it looks to be around 2 per city.

    Additions to Plan for Next Turn:

    Jayne moves in about 24 hours. It would be good if more people carefully considered then voted immediately in the Chryshe poll, or any other poll as well.

    F4 appears delayed at this point, and I also regret to report that REGIA CIVITAS might build a Warrior as police, not Archer. Current REGIA CIVITAS poll results: move serf to Road, hire Elvis soon, finish Library in 3, build Warrior Police, resume Celebration, then build Marketplace.
    $Spend a bit on F3 Caravan, and move serf to Forest in 2 turns.
    Civvium to build a Temple as planned.

    In the absense of any further input, I recommend to Our Queen that Reneaux build a Temple, and that the Reneaux Settlers dash East to the North Whale Point site in Boreum, meet the OP Archer there to found a new great city.

    Further, MD Settlers to found G2NE adjacent to 3 Forest in 1 turn, serf on River Bend Shield, start a Settler. Named Neuma?

    In Audience w Queen Jayne, it appears agreed to split off the Chariot, and keep the Diplomat with the Legion. This is really a call by our Military Advisor, though.

    If you think anything otherwise, or more specific, would be best, please vote and/or post.

    That all sounds good to me!:D
    Except maybe that the buying of a caravan sounds a bit daft, or do we need to rush to build something else, afterwards?

    I never intend to rush buy the caravan, or anything. Just IPRB $11 here, $4 there or such, to gradually reduce how many turns to complete it. Plan ahead, spend gradually. Once we get to Settlers=40, then the city will finish production normally on its own, no waste at all. The Wine caravan will then walk up to RC, and be rehomed there. Then down the road to Elysium, which demands Wine.

    As of late Saturday night, the Chryshe poll results are split exactly 50-50 for all 4 cities, with relatively low voter turnout. The will of the people is unclear at this time, but some some consensus may emerge in the next hours. Queen Jayne, you may be left to your own good judgement.

    Personally, I don't feel strongly about most of the city choices, but there are 3 things worthy of mention.

    1) Prepare Reneaux for growth. Build a temple. Road the oasis. Mine the wine - this gives a good boost to both production and trade.

    2) Found River City (R4). This is an important interior city, not merely a filler. It will be a thriving size 12 city without borrowing any land squares.

    3) Expand into the northlands ASAP.

    This file might be of some use for you. It's an excel file that calculates the caravan payoff for you. It is based on a post made by Samson at apolyton.

    Since I can't upload excelfiles here i renamed it *.txt just change it into excel format and it'll work.

    This is my first post in this forum and I'll try to sign up for this demo-game, :)

    Chofritz! Nice to see you here! I grabbed the file, renamed to xls, and it comes up -- now we need to study it. Jayne moves within 12 hours, so please help us with our next move! Your comments will be fully considered by our multitude.

    Governors decisions look ok to me. Question is the Reneaux Settler. Looks like MonkE's keeping it to Road Oasis and Mine Wine, and Serutan is Sending Mord Settler up to B1. That is a coordinated plan, hence I approve. Reneaux Temple.

    Is R4 where I have been talking about it, SE of Forest?

    Queen, Citizens, wondering about anything else? I may have a bit more time in 4 hours...

    This is the third Post (Please read from: Prelim Results 18 Oct)

    Move REGIA CIVITAS serf from Ocean to Road, to finish Library in 3 turns,
    But in 2 turns, hire Elvis, build Warrior Police after Library, celebrate.
    Even ainwood doesn't want RC Archer Police! Start Market after Warrior.
    Spend some of what we earn on IPRB.

    Little Nemo, change to produce a Settler in 8. IPRB=20 $4
    LN Settler, Road the GrassLandShield, its current location.
      Then Road back S on Plains,
      Then Irrigate GLS SW SW of Regia Civitas (I'm not sure),
      Definitely Road Plains W W of RC (N of LN)

    F3 is building Wine Caravan, for Trade from RC to Elysium
    Spend IPRB to speed F3 Wine Caravan completion:
      Spend $11 IPRB=20 after one turn,
      Move Workers to Forest when Food Box=5
      Spend $6 IPRB=30, then $11 IPRB=40

    TFalls Settler, complete Elysium road, then Road to CJ.
      Road the 3 GrassLandShields (NE N N)
    TFalls complete Settlers in 3 Serf Forest once, next build a Temple
      New TFalls Settler, irrigate SE GLS for TFalls then go…
      finish road to F3 and Civvium.
    Civvium to build a Temple in 9 turns as planned
    Move Civvium Warrior to NE Forest and Fortify, to avoid riot!
    Home Gabba Gabba Warrior (presently supported by Elysium)
    Send Gabba Gabba Warrior out of the city to avoid riot, keep nearby.

    A few risky ideas of mine, perhaps posted elsewhere...
    MD Phx NE onto Road, Serfs work both Roads, Settler in 4 turns.
    CJ Phx NE up River, 2 Serfs working, IPRB=30 $16, there may be real trouble here completing Settler. Perhaps forget it and build Archer, not sure about polls & Governor's plans...

    MD Settler move NW one, found G2NE on Pure Green adjacent to 3 Forest,
      Serfs to River Bend, start Settler.

    Think Safety, Hunter Coverage, Temples, Archers, Caravans, RC Celebration, and Cop's. We really need Mike's badly.
