    Dear Robboo and Team Aloha,

    I apologise if this is to the wrong person.

    The Locopotamian people have always sought to increase our knowledge of the world around us. We've had many scientists doing just that.

    We've heard that your people are similar in this way and so, in the spirit of friendship, we would like to offer you a trade deal.

    We would propose that in exchange for 'Metal Casting', we will send you 'Meditation', 'Monotheism', and 'Monarchy'.

    We hope that you will find this generous deal pleasing, and that you will join us in trade now and in the future.



    Best Regards,

    Koondrad
    Team Loco

    I responded with ...I will post your PM and we will discuss it. I also said that BC was the foreign minister.

    So what do you think of the deal??? I say go for it with the stipulation they cant trade it to others.

    Well thats interesting. My eyes lit up at the sight of Monarchy:)

    Now this would be the perfect scenario, if we could trade for Monarchy and CS and lightbulb Philo, it means we can do a triple civics change in one go and get every bit of help for happiness we were looking for.

    If we can handle this diplomacy right we can slingshot ourselves to number 1:D

    I guess either wait a day longer and then ask if its going through.

    We should still try to get monarchy from LOCO so maybe we can propose an alternative. You should also make contact with them and tell them something like..due to the holidays and robboo delay in getting the message to the team our response is slower than normal.

    Well Piffle are offering CS for CoL + Math or Calandar + Math.

    Before they had suggested the CS trade i floated the idea of getting mason + archery off them, but that isn't on at the moment, so the Loco deal is ok as it is.


    All the trades are as of now like this.

    We owe Innovia 23 beakers.

    With Piffle CS is 1144beakers. On our side Maths is 357 and CoL/Caladar are both 500 so thats 287 beakers in our favour, although i'm sure Piffle will look for a way to even it up later.

    Now Loco's deal is very interesting.
    Monarchy = 429
    Meditation = 114
    Monotheism = 171 for a total of 714

    where MC is 643, so thats 71 beakers for us and they have made no inclination for any permenant arragement so we should take that and run and then work out the future deals with Innovia and Piffle

    Edit- should have read the whole discussion.

    If Innovia is getting CS in 2, then let make it work for all 3 of us.

    Innovia gives us CS, which we pass on to Piffle how can use the GP to lighbulb another tech which they give to us and we give to Innovia.
    There are also other techs that need to be traded to even it all up, but coordinated we could all get a huge leap, so much so we can go and offer Epsilon a 50% discount for gold ;)

    The only difficulty is the Innovia and piffle have not met, making communication arkward

    Thats true but it would be to their benifit because with 3 of us its a case of research 1 tech get 2 techs back for it. Also i think we have shown we are honest, we could have traded piffle CoL and Innovia would not have known since they haven't met them but we didn't, we went and asked them if it was ok so i don't see why they wouldn't want to be involved

    No and hopefully they'll realise that and allow us to trade CS with piffle.
