Ravus: Member of the Liberal Marxist Party Back and wow! Okay, so i support the proposed coalition between the liberal marxist and the modernization party. Mainly because a coalition does not have to be enduring. People seem to be thinking that a Coalition is a long term forever thing. But you can break up and go seperate ways eventually. So while Cull was right, once the empire is in a position of power will may go our seperate ways, untill then we will be following similer enough paths to work together (lesser of two evils choice) As the modernization party is the only other one i like apart from the Liberal Marxist i shall throw my votes in as so: Liberal Marxist = 1 vote Modernization party = 1 vote - I also support Lighthearter continuing as the neutral controller of the game. Best way to keep thing honest and moving forward. I wouldn't say no to a little more description on current events (the people finding the cows/stone etc) @ Cull; it's actually more realistic for a president NOT to control the empire. Real life rulers don't have instantanous knowledge and reactions to events. Having your information come through an intermediary is natural. Especially in the stone age! - Expansion: I support the idea of a second city down the line and expanding to France but only to found a costal landing city. Once we have one city mainland we can then explore and scout out the land long term while claiming all of the British Isles. This Landing city can in that time be built up to be our Defensive Army city. Wars can then be fought in Europe away from our more peaceful homelands. Maps: Can we get a bigger map of the prospective land with the resources shown next time? This will help future management more. PS which earth map is this? England looks too big to be from Earth18. Is it from Rhye's Rise and fall? or is it actually from the GIANT earth map? either way at least it means we're not getting the same old stuff. England is normally bursting with resources but this time it lookes like we will have to scout for some.
