Played three techs; MC->IW->Compass I connected Silver, had some cities grow (one city a bit too much but it is building forge so the will only last a few turns from now)... Also settled the new city, Conf spread after two turns or so, so I changed from Monument to Gran. Connected northwestern pigs (wtf guys), and made a lot of road in general... Some screenies...: Clams (originally protected by a galley) got killed by barb galley (mouseovered). We have Iron, next player should probably link it up... And before our first Forge is up: Great! But wait, it gets wooorse... That event tells me I'm missing something since I did not notice them making peace (otoh Qin got a GG earlier so it had to be in my turnset... Duh). Guessing the function of the galley with axe stationed in Washington, here is what the fleet looks like at the end of the turnset. I also built a couple of Triremes to clear out the barbs. As you see here, just after I saved. ShwPaya is biafal: Save attached.
