    Messy first point fiveth game. First was a complete failure, with me putting up the wrong save and only getting 1 signup.

    I'm back but with limited time next week.

    :lol: If I'm on skip until I quit playing squash you'll have to wait a while :p I'm just not playing 6hrs per day anymore ;)

    I'm pretty confused re playing order. Am I up now??

    BTW finally some serious action (like a 2-front war). Looking foreward to this game. It's just too boring if everything goes according to plan ;)

    Arh this roster is a mess. I'll try to clean it up:
    Quotey
    Mystyfly UP?
    Slobberinbear skip till he finishes... whatever
    Atropos skip till he gets back
    Diamondeye ON DECK?

    Can everyone agree on that one for now?

    Sorry couldn't play yesterday, we got some relatives visiting (I didn't know of) just when I loaded the save.
    Won't be able to play until the weekend, sorry. Go ahead, anyone, if you can.

    Some comments: I'm surprised at the state of the save. We have some 3 tiles or so visibility from our city now threatened by JC stack. It is as good as undefended and has no unit in queue (to be whipped) but is building a settler :smoke:. Also there are 2 exposed units of ours near a crapcity of the french. Why was there no stack (the defenders are damaged and there are only a spear (not sure) and a cat left ?!?
    Our stack, mostly consisting of cats (nearly no phants :() are somewhere near a french city. They should've retreated as soon as JC declared. Also I doubt they'd capture much with the lack of attackers.
    Also we don't have only too few phants but also too few maces. Why hasn't there been more :whipped: ??

    Nah you play it. If we need whipping I definately shouldn't be allowed to play, since you will most likely find me changing to CS asap, and even if staying in Slavery, I don't whip. I simply can't get used to it!

    I subconciously stop wihpping millitary after axes and swords. Have to learn how to I guess.

    The stack near French crapcity had an elly and something else (just domething i put together to kill a desert city). Unfortunately, the elly lost at high odds and the other might have too.

    Plan to take peace with DeG for whatever he offers and recapture rotterdam during my set. You'll have to wait until Sat, sorry (and again I'm up at several SGs at once... Gotta do something about it :rolleyes:).

    Sorry, I completely forgot about this game.

    Played my turns yesterday. Not much to report.

    JC was bombarding rotterdam since I whipped more defenders and upgraded some units in there. Took peace with DeG instantly, getting Mono + Archery + some gold.

    Lots of general whipping. Returned the units that were in ex-france. Whipped some maces and xbows. XBows eat praets. JC cities are lightly defended and I razed Arretium. Cats + Axes finally reach the front and are on their way to Ghuangzou or how it's spelled (lost my notes). We should save money to upgrade those axes to maces, like this they're pretty useless.

    We got another GG, settled in Amsterdam.

    Settler is on the way to resettle around Arretium I signed a spot I'd like.

    You'll find lots of :whipped: :mad:. We should focus on maces and switch in some phants, we have plenty of cats i think.

    I'm not happy with the roading. We need to connect the frontline to the city network. 1-2 Workers are on it.

    Save will be posted later today, I don't have it here now (@ school).

    If they're here, slobberinbear's up, otherwise Atropos, otherwise diamondeye.

    Argh. I havent even "got it" since I had a 18yrs birthday this weekend and, well, I need a serious :coffee: on top of that. I can play tomorrow or we can stop here, the game seems dead anyway?

    I also dislike unfinished games. I'm not sure of the roster, but I'm going to look for at least 1 more player in the regi thread. I'm currently on autoskip though. Messy first point fiveth game.

    Okay played 10 turns. Took two roman cities, and settled one myself on the "c?" sign. We are still going strong here, I traded with Joao - Dyes for his 5g/t, and begegd 90g off him. Brennus threatened me and got a no (OR Civic I believe). JC will give 5g/t or peace, but I want Feu before stopping. I left one city undefended but its not directly a frontal city. Attachments are the front. 1000 AD.

    AFAIK we should raze all cities to avoid having any buildings. I doubt there's any lurker still around but if so he might be so kind to remove them...

    I think Quotey still isn't able to play. DOMC, Atropos, slobberinbear, anyone here??

    BUILDINGS? YUCK! I did say at the start that we'd replay all sets that had a building in them.... but I think that under the circumstances, having a lurker remove any buildings and having the cities build a settler immediately which we'd then disband would work.

    There's at least one intrepid lurker still checking this out. ;) Offending Granary/Courthouse removed from Guangzhou and Granary/Forge removed from Antium. The glorious Dutch empire should be free of unsightly buildings once again.
