    :traderoute: Foreign Trade Analysis:
    * Epsilon - Trading our Rice & Gems & Clams for Piffle’s Corn & Wines & Wheat (and giving them Iron and Whales)
    * Epsilon – Trading our Whales for Innovia's Silk

    * Innoviais trading Silk for Piffle's Fish
    * Innovia is trading Silk & Sugar for Aloha's Dyes and Cows
    * Innovia is trading Pigs & Sugar for Loco's Corn & Crab & Deer

    * Alohais trading Cows and Dyes for Loco's Deer and Gold

    :strength: Foreign Treaty/Diplomacy Status:

    Epsilon Details:
    With Piffle: Alliance (till we're the last 2 teams)
    With Innovia: Semi-Hostile
    With Loco: Think we're friendly, but actually Our military Target
    With Aloha: Trader’s Only Open Borders (Piffle's Military Target)

    Piffle vs. Aloha – started: 1110 AD (t171)
    Innovia vs Loco – started: 1010 AD (t161) ended: 1130 AD (t173)

    Aloha and Innovia - cooperating at a low level – Innovia supplying free units to Aloha?
    Epsilon and Piffle – cooperating very closely
    Aloha and Loco – at least one very big trade

    From the desk of the CFM (Chief Foreign Minister):
    • Innovia and Loco sure are cozy all of a sudden!! This has got to be the biggest and most unexplained turn-around in foreign relations I've ever seen in an MTDG. I can't wait to read the forums afterward and see what happened here.
    • I still can't see whether or not the other teams have Iron! It is still not showing on our side of the ledger for me. So I'm taking Memphus's word that all the other teams still lack it… but as far as I can see, everyone has it. :wallbash:
