    come up with one of G_W's Haiku's?

    Or just state we redirected a worker in celebration of our new friendship to capture elelphants in the jungle. We look forward to sending over the first shipment of ivory should you wish to lavish your leaders.

    The Haikus aren't that difficult; I ramble enough as it is.

    I'm not sure if I should be adding anything else to the body of the text though.

    I wouldn't say it's necessary to add anything more.

    How's the second version then?

    Spoiler :
    Namaste Saturn,

    We would like to thank you for the swift delivery of alphabet, research into currency has been started.

    On a slightly tangential matter, we will have a spare ivory hooked up by the end of turn 94, which we can gift to you if you are in need of happy resource. We feel that sharing resource between ourselves is a natural progression from free tech trading; we have several spare resources that we could trade with you, but unfortunately ivory are the only happy resource we can share until we get calendar.

    Our minister of diplomacy is currently on holiday, so when he returns sometime in the next 24 hours he can discuss our alliance in more detail with you in chat if you would like, or we could continue to just drafting a treaty.

    Krill, Daimyo of Interior, SANCTA

    Nice work here! :clap:

    As soon as I get a real break, I'll draft up a formal version of that treaty and package it with a nice fluffy letter and we'll get it out the door.

    This Alliance with Saturn is an exceptionally positive development! :dance:

    Here’s my proposal for rapid release to Saturn. The sooner the better!

    Thoughts?

    And, of course, I’ll be attaching a full jpeg of the treaty to the email.

    send it yesterday.

    because we also need CoL in 2 turns or less!

    So maybe as a side note mention that (or does it cloud the water) and say we can jsut trade MC for CoL in game

    Send it in the email as a PS so that it's a separate note in the email, it would kinda distract otherwise.

    I'm all for sending it with alacrity. Just one question...how do you value resources? It seems awkward and potentially a way to game the alliance if they're not shared freely.

    Maybe saying if the alliance feels trading it is the better interest of both team and we share the proceeds. This could potentially lead to misinformation by trading with others. Gotta keep the others guessing especially with a trade to MS.

    yeah, share resources freely, when one team requests them. If we reworded that clause to "Only if the other member of the alliance is uninterested or unable to make a reasonable trade for a resource, will we then seek to trade outside of the alliance."

    Saturn would much prefer that, I think, considering they have 4 resources hooked up, and we have 12, and rapidly increasing. We'd probably prefer it simply for the ease in which it makes it possible to sell resources if we deem it wise as Whomp said above.

    EDIT: And fyi, I have saved the above letter as a draft in the gmail account.

    Incase anyone missed it in the turn update thread (although if you were a lurker that should be the most important thread you read...)

    In any event:

    We Trade MC for CoL and Archery to Saturn
    I declined (in game in talking DMOC) for Monarchy as we don't need it right now and strategically didn't want to appar greedy.

    also for resource trades:
    Wheat and Fish for Crabs.
    They also mentioned the found (aka by working a mine) silver last turn, so they will have it to send to us sooner. (Nice but not imperative for us given our plans)
    I also told them that we will have ivory for them in the next couple of turns.

    So yeah that was the interturn diplomacy.

    :agree:

    Without this alliance, I'd put our odds of winning at around 8% - if it weren't for Krill and Memphus I'd say 0.1%
    With it... I'm feeling VERY optimistic... 95% confident.
    So yeah... this alliance is worth a non-scientific 87% improval in our odds. :lol: :dance:

    Meh. I just want someone to finance our teching. That's the next point on the agenda after Saturn send us an acceptance for the treaty; getting them to send us most of their gold per turn in exchange for not having to build libraries.
