    Innovia offered us a cease fire and has begun evacuating their troops from our lands. I'm not sure what their motives are for this, but it's great for us anyway. Hopefully they are gone for good and won't be back in a few turns. They were winning the war, so they must have another motive for peace. Perhaps they are afraid of invasion from another power or some such thing.

    Anyway, this gives us the oppurtunity to rebuild. I already have settlers being built to rebuild B&O and but a new city on the land bridge between us and innovia. We should also probably settle any other spots we can find.

    Here is the suggested city spot for the landbridge.

    We probably have a small chance to get back in this. We are pretty far behind technologically but somehow we have the second-highest GNP. Epsilon is probably out of our reach (they're running away with the game) but we may be able to catch up to other civs.

    Well that was completly unexpected,

    I agree with the siting of the city on the land bridge

    Also we need to increase our miltary, just in case this happens again.

    We could seek to have a tech partnership with epsilon, we research some techs they research others and then we swap.

    Not Epsilon again. They're already too far ahead. Maybe we could set something up with another team? Innovia is the farthest behind, so they might be good to try.

    Sorry for suggesting Epsilon, they seemed the best choice, piffle and ahola are at war , (now that i have looked at the save, yes they are way to ahead)

    I like the idea of teaming up with our previous emeny though, should i pop a note though asking about it?

    Innovia have offered a OB, to return a captured worker, should we ask them to keep the OB when the ten turns are up?

    Yes, I think Innovia could be good friends. Maybe we can work together to catch up to the others.

    lurker's comment: First of all - I haven't read any other teams' secret forum so I do not have any inside information. That gives me the possibility to say something uninformed (thus allowed).

    If Innovia was winning the war and they would know it, what is there to gain for them with a cease-fire or a peace-treaty ? -Not much, if you ask me.- Is there a possibility that a cease-fire-offer is a diplomatic trick to gain information on how you are doing in the war and to be used sooner than you'd want ? In Civ4, a cease-fire means nothing and can be broken the same turn without consequences to the deal-breaker.
    In other words: how reliable and serious should you take this offer? Building non-military stuff might still be risky.

    Again: I haven't checked Innovia's forum lately, so my remark is without Innovia-knowlegde.

    I realize that, but...

    1. They have moved their forces away.

    2. If they went back on their word, they would never be trusted by anyone again. I also think that if they did this, we could get Epsilon to declare war on them.

    3. What would they have to gain? They were about to take a city and/or pillage us back to the stone age. Now they are just giving us time to rebuild our defenses and reimprove our land.

    I think they have realised that if they contiue the war that epsilon would run away with the game, i would suspect a war between Innovia and epsilon is coming soon

    lurker's comment: I have now read Innovia's forum and that means I'll be silent on this topic again.

    Mostly any trading deal would be good, just make sure the beakers are roughly even. I don't think we want a resource trade right now. I'll say more after I play the save.

    No clear trades available. See what they are researching and how we can make a deal for it. We have gunpowder and we will have printing press in a turn. They have optics. However, Epsilon offered us Optics for 200 gold. I think we should take them up on that. We have the cash.

    Ok i will send a message to epsilon accepting the trade for optics

    I have had the chat with innovia, and we agreed to draw up a tech plan for each team so that we can both advance faster and take (although who would deliver win is yet to be decided) a space victory, they offered us a couple of galleys which i said we would consider it, each one would cost 25 gold, galleys being worth 50 hammers. We also talked about possible using various methods to slow down epsilon, using spies and other methods, although it may be extreme and very risky.

    There was a very firm no when i ask them whether they planned to invade epsilon. Apart from that there isn't much to report, i will draw up a plan so that each team researches the equal number of beakers tonight, (starting from the industrial age)

    Sent 200 gold to Epsilon for Optics. We will have researched Printing Press next turn. What we research next will be based on Joe Harker's plan.

    Our empire is expanding after the war. Here is a screenshot of New B&O and our next city (settler should be there in a turn or two). Possible city sites in the SE are also being looked into. Other ideas for city sites?

    Lastly, an interesting e-mail from Innovia.

    I am sorry i haven't had time and i am away for the weekend, will try to do the plan on monday.


    On the letter, i think we should wait until aloha answers because they will be key to the plan, (innovia might be planning a UN victory if they want three teams involed, it came up in the chat.)

    Also there is a site with two gold mines to the west which would be a good commerce city

    I started on constitiution as a fallback (14 turns). No one else has it yet so we may be able to get a trade there. On the trade deal, we should probably research Constitution, Democracy, and maybe something else and give it to them for some bottom-of-the-tree techs.

    Probably should have mentioned this earlier, but I will be gone from the 22nd (Friday) until the 1st. Therefore we need another turnplayer. Joe, I think you would be the best one to do this. You will also need to handle anything else that comes up. If you have any doubts or questions say so, but we really need you to play a few turns here. We can't delay the game for over a week just because I am on vacation. It will take less than 20 mins of your time per day, and you won't even have to play everyday. Just do whatever you think is right. You can make the descisions.
