Great surprise - we are @war! Having been warned by Bindy, I started dispatching troops toward the border. We got the prophet, as I have seen no mention about it I decided it would be most useful as settled : On the same turn I realized we may be in a hurry: M'kay. Decision time. Gold to upgrade, whip to, well, hurry up stuff. I decide to use the overflow into a wall which was beneficial. Problem is, Asoka dowed us too. (I even took a pixie, but imageshack is down...) Mauryan was the worst hit I got - a combat 2 LBow managed to take it vs our fortified axe on the hill The next player will have to deal with this, by now, holy city. On the other hand, the walls has been a great idea - Wang spent 7 turns (and is still spending ) on bombarding the walls (4% each turn - starting @50%) while our troops were happily joining Vienna. I have another pixie of troops inside, but the shack site is still down... Will update later. We have 3 swords, 3 chariots and 4 or 5 axes if I recall well. One more chariot and axe are on the way. Construction is due in 6. I put some reminders on the map Have fun pholk!
