I'll take it no one wants the galleon to escape even for a ransom. @gandhi the peace is to give us a chance to change things around because the cossaks don't get as big bonus against horse units in the new patch. Not that i am usually so generous but the turns are taking for ever to finish because not everyone has the old patch and its not like we can win anyway. I'll see what conroes reply is but i take it that we are interested in only a short term peace. Then going over and paying them a visit.
