    Nah we are good to go. I am not worried...

    That said i thin kwe shoudl respond, and see what Peter is thinking diplomatically...as mentioned we need to set up that "No SAIL" zone ASAP. Otherwise we'll be declaring war when his ships (big stack) are within landing distance of our shore.

    I keep forgetting to open the save to get a map screenshot when I'm at home.

    Can someone else post a map, and I'll write a letter?
    Or I suppose I could just write a letter that says, "if your ships get within 1-turn's move of our coast, we're going to sink them" - and let Peter figgure out where the line is? :lol:

    I think I want to sink that Ship.

    1. Make the comment that the onyl reason Peter knows there is a spy there is because he was on Epsilon.

    2. That ship cannot sail through. We have weak defenses in the center intentionally. 3 Cavalry could absolutely run through pour Loco Cities. As a Coutner suggest that we simply trade maps again and thier ship can turn around. But they have our map and all the info.

    3. Democracy was still owed to us from the previous agreement so we need to dig that up i think?

    I Like it too. (but we won't be gifting half the cities) Once Innovia is out of the picture (if We can keep Piffle from doing anything rash in the meantime)

    We can take Aloha-Piffle 2-1

    Let's send it off before the next turn.

    so - should we remove the line about the innovian cities?
    Or keep it in as a diversion?

    ok :salute:

    Sending now!

    Though, depending on the game situation, I think we could still consider giving Piffle a few cities if Peter actually sticks with us. That way we could at least sorta keep our word. I doubt he'd even be able to make an attempt to defend them... and if he did, he'd just be less defended in the Piffle homeland.
    Anyway - I'm sending the letter out as-is. Just want to say that I think the question of giving cities to Piffle or not should remain open.

    Ok So we can stall him.... PERFECT!!!!

    1. Offer that we will take a screenshot with no spy in Brilliant. (We can withdraw) Then remidn him he can check on the defence screen ;) We should honour this.

    2. Agree we will send no ships through their border towns.

    3. Once we share cities on the same landmass...(make a joke) we are already on the same landmass ;). But inseriousness the Innovian cities we gift will have to be on the eastern side (suggest 4 on the east) so this won't be a problem.

    4. Tech. Tell them to go for flight, we'll get plastics...by that time It will be Piffle's time....:evil:

    I see no reason to gift Piffle any cities. Just hold back on that until we are ready to go at them.

    @Classical Hero – our treaty mandates that we give some cities to Piffle. We could ignore this of course… and if Piffle backstabs us before the conquest of Innovia is complete – then of course we'll just keep all the cities.

    However, I'd argue that's it's easily worth gifting away some cities to keep Piffle loyal till Innovia is dead. And yes we could lie… but I'd rather not break our word when we really don't need too.

    We haven't promised to trade Plastics to Piffle – and I'm sure we never will.
    That means we'll be the only team with Oil = the only team with Tanks.
    Not to mention our MFG ability is roughly twice the ability of Piffle & Aloha combined. We'll have no trouble at all retaking all of the cities we give to Piffle when the time comes.
    Spoiler :


    Hence – I think it's worth it to preserve our honor, gift the cities away, kill Aloha, then quickly get the land we need for the Domination win. :thumbsup:

    And now…
