    whoa whoa whoa what's going on?

    edit: just talked to croxis a bit: seems he's warming them up to us with small talk and such ;) maybe we don't need to be alone with CDG?

    Then again, we won't know until he posts the log now will we?

    I may be reading too much into this but near the end

    "[00:29:39] croxis: don't let the barbarians bite ;-)

    That kinda bothers me.

    uh, wow! talk about small talk ;)

    so civ related, I got: We am cool and we are gonna be cool with one another, yo. Anything else?

    edit: and that they don't like CDG :( this makes a triple alliance hard.

    I've got a feeling that they think that CDG is hostile towards us because they are blocking our path. Nothing suspicious, at least I hope so.

    This is indeed exciting news, but it may be premature. We need to get the save to be sure.

    Also, I'm assuming that the time stamps in your log are PST (aka GMT-7)?

    I think 40J is correct, croxis, well, kinda.

    PDT is GMT-7 and PST is GMT-8

    at the moment... I believe it is GMT-7 as EST is currently GMT-4, courtesy of Daylight Savings Time.

    Of course, after looking at your previous post more carefully, I think this boils down to a good ol' fashioned abbreviation issue. Nonetheless, if I'm not mistaken, you're currently GMT-7, correct?

    They could also have gotten a clue that we and CDG is not in any big conflict, since then croxis would have known what whitebndit was refering to. Though that may only be my paranoia...

    I doubt that any credible data with respect to our relationship with CDG could be gleemed from that comment. I wouldn't worry about that.

    Does this mean we have another potential ally. It would be great if we can make Poly less agressive towards ELucidia and make them too against GCA. A three against one would surely bring peace in this continent after GCA is out of it. Hehehehehehe

    That depends. It looks like CDG has caused trouble.

    Personally, I'd be happiest if all three were fighting amongst themselves.

    Now... here's the log of our chat with Poly earlier today.
