It's a weird game on Immortal. I'm Songhai. I build the NC about turn 45, get the free settler and send him southwest. My scout have been looking at the progress of the Iro-American war that started around turn 20. They made peace and started off again on turn 36. Make peace 4 turns later? He then declares on England to his east. Hiawatha is friendly with me, but I see some of his units starting moving north, where there is nothing but me. A fair walk, like 12 turns but he adds more units, so all in all there are 7 warriors and 2 spears going north. Suspicious...nah? Meanwhile I learn IW and start a settler, already have 4 warriors and another one coming soon. The settler is done before the main assault and sent to a 6-iron spot where he will settle on top of it. I lose 2 warriors but chopping gives me 3 more, and I clear out the 9-unit attack and leaves me with 5. No more coming from south, so I sell all my luxes and upgrade to swords. He asks for peace and wants 300 gold and 12gpt, no deal. My swords walk down there and take an almost undefended city and kill his whole army on the rebound. He gives peace for a bit of gold and gpt. Fine. Here I notice, he is fighting America again and they are exchanging units every turn, but they still keep on coming. He makes peace finally with Washington and then declares on me again! But, sorry Hiawatha, this time I have 5 longswords and they kill the 20-unit!!! surge from below, only warriors, archers and spears. Again he wants straight up peace, no way and I take his Capitol and second best city. He pays me 2gpt and 111 gold or something. All what he have now is 2 ICE-cities. He declares on England, Mongols and India in that order and denounce America who declares on him shortly after. Mind you, it's 1700AD now and he still fight America with his pikes. And he declared war after war on the other AI's, nothing stopping him. Felt a bit like the black knight in Monty Python... Normally Hiawatha plays as a well balanced AI, but this time he must've found some strange mushrooms or something. Never seen anything like it. So 2 questions: Why the heck did he behave like this in this game? And where did he get all those units from? If I didn't have LS by then, I would've been toast.
