    Would be nice if we could get it in time for helping push out Taj, in case Cav has any tricks up their sleeve. And we clearly can use the GA to save us some anarchy in the near future. If it saves us anarchy, then there's no question in my mind that this is worth it. About how many post-multiplier hammers and commerce would we gain in GA? 800H, 1000 Beakers? More?

    A free great person is always worth it :)

    And as for a cav trick, that is in the update I am working on. They have gotten 2 GP in the last 2 turns. so expect them to be in a double GA.

    They should know that we're in a state of war with Cav, do we want/need to tell them about the forces they have? We haven't really talked much lately, so it might be worth it just to be talking imo. If you want I can come up with something later after you post your update. :)

    Yeah last update in game was that they get thier GM soon. (2 turns i think) they have the galley and will sail over to our new city. at that point we need a unit to go from FC to that city so the knight can come back.

    basically we get Taj go golden then go double golden with the GM & GS. so we get a solid GA.

    The goal is for Kaz to be almost out of the game by the end of the golden age.

    Sent this to them- I'll start on a more detailed email once we've got all the info up. :)

    From the picture it doesn't appear they have a mounting force ready to hit Saturn.

    I think they're going to try and dogpile us by forcing us to fight multiple fronts to weaken us.

    You don't want to see it. I'll get it next turn.

    65K for Cav
    45K for us.

    How much will we go up when we start drafting? (and the flip side- how much will they go up when they start drafting too... :()

    How do I get a hold of a saturn player to get them to log in and accept the cities? I can't gift the units until they are in their territory.

    Probably the best would simply to be to PM Plako here.

    Any word from Plako?

    And is there a reason we're not going public with our plan?

    They declined all the cities...said they needed to discuss this option. :(

    I am fine with going public!

    To my teammates: Many players are going to be upset so please take the high road here and not start a flame fest. I'll pm Rik to make sure this does not occur.

    I really would be careful with this. IMO we'll already look like losers for leaving after holding the game up for such a long time (even if it isn't our fault really), there's no need to make things worse, we haven't even posted (iirc) that we're having manning issues.

    I think letting Saturn decide what they want to do is fine.

    I propose we send this letter to Saturn, and then do our best to bow out gracefully:

    Thoughts?

    (P.S. Parts of this letter could even serve as a rough-draft of sorts for an official UN announcement, I think)
    I'd also just like to echo Whomp and plead with everyone to be extra-super nice in any posts in the UN. This is already a tragedy. No need to make it worse.

    I won't post until this thing is over.

    Good to see you again G_W though, glad you are coping with the new job :)
