    @Luthor ... can you let us know who hasn't selected a bonus. I've send something in but it wasn't acknowledged.

    Hi.

    I've received your email. The danger you mention could be true. OR... not.

    Most people have not sent the full bonus info as they are only focusing on the unit to choose. I think that only 2 have sent the complete info.

    I hope I have time in the weekend to sit down and see what is missing from whom.

    Oh sorry ... I read it as you only get 1 bonus ... not 3 (one of each). My mistake. I will email you now.

    We are only missing for REM and Knoedel bonus requests... as they are good players perhaps they do not need it?

    I hereby humbly request the administrator of this game to implement the following two house rules, effective immediately:

    *You may only change the civics of a civ if you have more espionage points against them than they have against you.

    *If a human is the vassal of another human, the master may demand one resource as tribute every turn. If the vassal does not comply they must break the capitulation at the soonest opportunity. The vassal may cancel every such tribute as soon as the game allows, meaning a master can only have a maximum of 10 resources sent for free by their vassal at any one point unless the vassal sends them voluntarily.

    REM, you know nothing of the settings apart from what is stated in post #1.

    Knoedel, you can not make conditional requests. You have to choose ONE (from each). Period. If not I will choose for you.

    I will assume 8 human players and start from there. I will play with the 8th Civ the first turns to see if there is another player willing to join. If not I will retire after... 10(?) turns?

    Did you receive my request? If so, is it acceptable to you?

    Knoedel, I'll check if the Conquistador counts as a gunpowder unit or not.

    Revent, I have everybody's proposal with the exception of REM. But as he is one of the top players around here, he probably doesn't need the bonus! :mischief:

    Spoiler :
    Actually it is a good thing that REM did not send the bonus yet because the game setup is quite delayed...

    Conq requires the gunpower tech ... so ... that seems like a gunpower unit to me.
