Option D: None of these. If you choose none of these please say why.
Abstention. I don't know that I know the difference enough to pass judgment.
I abstain (voted D). I think Caledorn as ambassador to RB has final say over the messages we send to them, so I leave it up to him.
I'm OK with Caledorn deciding. I just heard people question whether there should be a poll on this.
I also am OK with Caledorn deciding and sending whenever he is ready.
As a seperate issue... In general, I am in favor of what I believe is our current Team policy which is the Chief Diplomat having final say over our messages including the authority to use his judgment to resolve any controversies, without the need for a poll or vote on the matter.
Yeah. Polls are great and all, but this is a fine example of when speed overrules democracy. We had to set back settling for a turn over this, for Pete's sake.
I vote D. We should ask for stone and spices but I don't think we should offer wines or anything else. They just planted a provocative city, we should see how they respond to a request for something without offering anything in return.
I will go and vote D too. Now I was in the game and I saw that RB have excess diamonds too. I would like we to have Stone and Spices as reparation for the isthmus city and then we promise them to trade wines for gems as long strategic partners.
I voted A. Its worth a shot. Besides I like that we will seem friendly until we are ready to make an attack. Being angry with about the stolen city does us no good.
I'm getting tired of us waiting for permission from RB to play our game. We should not have a settler sitting idle waiting on RB's feelings.
Voted D. None of the above. Just send something short accepting the NAP, no flummery, no "of course we'll give you the wines" as if our resources were RB's by right, certainly nothing limiting our use of the stone to 70 turns as if that were a trade-off for the city loc.
And get on with settling the city.
I actually modified that "of course we'll give you the wines" in my rewrite of the draft to say that we will be willing to make a deal with them for wine when we have the tiles worked. I also thought that stating that we would happily give them wine was a bad idea, as I feel it would lead them to believe that we would give them the wine back as a payment for the spice/stone. I believe we should use that wine as a bargain card to trade another luxury resource from them, like the gems that 2metraninja mentioned they have 1 in excess of now.
