    I'll run :)

    Platform: Lean and Mean

    By striking a diplomatic posture that protects us against attack by certain teams, we will be free to concentrate our forces towards potential "vassals" - oh, right. This isn't warlords :hammer2: Well, Loco, at least ;)

    The next 20 turns will see the maturation of our Axeman Army, and hopefully start our exploration of Islands off the Coast. Barbs are becoming less and less of a concern for our core. Happiness Policing and Foreign Relations will occupy most of our troops time.

    A vote for me is a vote for The Leader :salute:

    Ahhh - the good old days!

    If you read my platform closely, it is obvious that my idea of the immediate future (and medium-term future) incorporates a robust Foreign Policy. So, in effect, you could 'run against me' by decrying my stated Foreign Policy assumptions :lol:

    I have access to the save at home, so I can check in at least twice every 24 hours. I fully support allowing the Turntaker to have freedom to respond to events that none of us catch preturn - barbs, happiness, etc.

    But I don't think there's any reason each unit can't have explicit orders for each turn, even if it's just "hold tight :)"

    Great! May my Reign of Terror be a warning to all Barbarians and other enemies of The Leader :beer:

    Once Barbarian axemen start appearing, do animals cease to appear? Anyone know?

    Animals Cease to appear when Barb warriors show up
    (Hence why we assume all barb units have a max move of 1 and base defence around that)

    We are now on turn 19(!) of the current term.

    Nominations for the next elections (to take place during turns 20-21) are now open.

    The next term will last from turn 142 until turn 160.

    Please post your nominations for the Head of the Office of Imperial Defense in this thread.

    The nomination period is now closed.

    Due to lack of competition, the Head of the Office of Imperial Defense for Term 8 is Peter Grimes.

    ...I assume that was an acceptance, Pete?...

    Why not ;)

    I'll be busier than usual at work over the next few weeks, but I don't think we're going to start the war during this term. Unless someone starts one on us... :shifty:

    I nominate myself for this position since there has been no other nomination for this job. Vote classical_hero for Minister of Imperial defense/offense for term 9.

    Well, there's really no game here. We're looking towards an invasion of Loco in the next 40 turns (2 elections), and this Office will be responsible for establishing invasion plans, as well as defensive plans.

    For what it's worth, I think that Classical Hero and Peter Grimes are both equally qualified for the position, but I leave it up to him to prove me wrong ;)

    Alright Looks Like we have 1 turn left of the current term.

    I have put this position to vote.

    If No other positions have 2 memebers vying for it then I will default them to who has put thier name in / who had it this term.

    Please Vote as it will be closed once I play next the next save :)
