    Instructions for next turn chat
    Work the wheat, the grassland farm, the grassland mined hill and a grassland forest. After growth, start working the mined plains hill.
    Build barracks and a settler when size 5 is reached. If the barracks is completed before we reach size 5, squeeze in a chariot.

    These instructions can still be changed, so speak up if you want them changed!

    I'm guessing this is some sort of signature line, but I don't think it belongs in the TCIT, unless you have replaced the Chieftain and I missed it.

    You mean the stop order? I think it's in our best interest to stop when Alphabet is discovered, and I believe every official can give stop orders (correct me if I'm wrong though), therefor I gave this stop order. It would be better if the Chieftain posts this order too, and I think he will (unless discussion in the appropriate thread reveals that the citizens want something else, in which case I will change this order). But I thought that it's better to be save than sorry.

    Yes, that's what I meant. I looked through

    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=208757

    and did not find the word "stop". My personal preference would be to have stop orders originate from a single official, to avoid possible confusion. At the least, I would like an official issuing a stop order to indicate how their own next orders would be affected by the stop condition being reached.

    From past Demogames it's been my understanding that any official can give a stop order, though typically the stop order is related to their office.

    Correct - any official can post an instruction to halt the chat.

    Is that order absolute or can it be overruled by a higher-ranked official?

    Who qualifies as an "official" in this context? Could the Public Defender halt play?

    Absolute - leaders can't overrule each other in the current ruleset.

    Chieftain and Elders certainly. It would take unusual circumstances for a Judicial official to halt play.

    This is all quite theoretical and if you don't care to explore the issue, that's fine with me, but if you do...

    - If the Public Defender posted an order in the TCIT: "When X is discovered stop", would that be legal? Could it be overturned?

    - If the Public Defender posted an order in the TCIT: "play one turn and then stop", what recourse would there be for those who favored more turns?
    - For that matter, if an Elder gave a "one turn" order, what recourse would exist?
    - And if the Chieftain gave a "one turn" order?

    May I suggest that this interesting discussion takes places in a more appropriate thread?

    Prior to setting the queue on a settler (this turn) the city had one turn until growth. I suggest your put something in the queue to for one turn to allow that growth.

    I would like the Elder of NotA to please concider adding 1 or more Archers to the build queue, France has 2 Axemen in Lyons, which is of concern, concidering our best unit right now defending our cities are 2 strength Warriors, compared to the 5 strength Axemen.

    Right now it will take your city 2-3 turns to produce an Archer for the city defenses.

    I would like to see the Oracle built in our capitol, immediately upon researching Priesthood.

    I agree with this and DS's research proposal in the research queue thread. I've added a suggestion in my instructions "suggesting" that NotA immediately switch to the Oracle after the completion of Priesthood. I believe it would be in our best interest.

    Orders for the next turnchat:

    Build Library, worker and axeman. Focus on growth when not building the worker.
