425 BC Update As planned Victoria met her demise. I don't seem to have the knack yet for when to take screens. But at some point before 575 BC alphabet became available for trade. Some back filling was done. In 575 BC, Victoria received a summons to "discuss something else." All available war chariots crossed her borders. The next turn, Victoria died. 4 or 5 war chariots were lost but 3 cities, 3 workers and 2 granaries were gained. Spoiler : Techs in 575 BC Victoria's Demise However, before she died Victoria bribed Mansa into war. That war is still going on. 2 more cities were founded in the West and in 425 Hatty completed the pyramids (with bureau not stone) and acquired monotheism. Spoiler : Western Empire in 425 BC Civics in 425 BC Tech Screen in 425 BC There is no pressing need to sign peace with Mansa yet, but pillaging is an option. Both Gandhi and Mansa have monarchy but Hatty was briefly worst enmies with Gandhi and Mansa wouldn't trade before the war. With 2 calendars and 1 wine, calender seems to be the place to go. Gems will come online next turn so MC is in play. The music line is still wide open so that may be chased down for a GA. With the downfall of Victoria, Hatty is one step closer to the aluminum district with gold/silver. The simpe solution is to punch a hole in the center of it and kill Joao. The green district south of Thebes needs to be settled too. It's just that there are no food resources near except fish/clams in the far south. At the moment, things are quite and not much more may happen before 1 AD.
