    For this one, orders can go in-thread, at least things that other players can see (i.e. not secret).

    Epirus: Spend eco on 200 archers and 10 more ships. Set half of spears to patrol cities and keep order, guard from barbs, etc., and the other spears and all archers to head south into Aetolia, establishing cities and colonizing the region, with a major base in Naupactus, and another at Olpae. Since Aetolia is mainly forest and mountain, archers should have no problem...Use navy to patrol waters of Epirus and exact toll from traders moving through the strait, and others in the Ionian. If enemies encountered, use archers to cover while spears form into a single column, then attack under heavy arrow coverage, using archers as light troops to prevent flanking. If possible, stay on high ground and fill the enemy full of arrows while they try to move up the slope.

    North Indian Empire is not a country name. Please change country name.

    You can build them. You won't get bonuses. Only way to get bonuses is nice stories. I hate Wonders.

    You Crazy?? What am I an atlas :p!!??!!!11 ask... I'll answer any country you need to know.

    Okay, who are the NPC nations north and south of me along the nile?

    Edit: From what I understand of the economy, no matter what level it says we only get three spending points?

    King Kashta was escorted through the streets of the capital. In a decade, Kerma had fallen so far from its glorious past. The streets used to shine with pride but were now smudged with poverty and stench, wealthy merchants had left their shops for better regions, the beauty that had once hung on all the walls was now nothing more than raged tapestries. As Kashta and his armed enteurage walked past the school, he felt a bit of stupidity in the air. The legend of how the world had come into place, of the god Ajok, how death came to be, of their entire existence, had practically been forgotten.
    Kashta returned to his magnificent palace, sitting in his throne. Here he pondered of what to do next. He watched as one of his servants cleaned the walls. It was than that he realised, that as time passed on things had to be cleaned up. Well, what he really came to was that the city was old and needed a revival, just as their history and the Lotuko religion. He practically lept from his throne as he began to rush toward his military commander.
    "Ituko. Ituko! Come here at once" the King commanded
    Ituko approached the King, bowing slightly before speaking. "Yes my King, what may I do for you."
    "You know of the village Gurat, correct?" Kashta inquired
    "Yes, it is where the most enlightened of Kerma live. They store all the records of our glorious kingdom and teach those that visit the village."
    "That is all true. Our people have become ignorant of their past and we cannot allow this to continue. I want you to send a guard of 5 spearmen and 5 archers to Gurat. They are to convince the scholars and priest to journey back to Kerma to enlighten are people where they will have the command of grand temples and large schools."
    "As you wish my King."
    Ituko departed immediately to form the guard for the mission, leaving Kashta to himself.

    Well, I didn't know their names so I didn't know they didn't have states yet. And how I'm supposed to know, umm . . . . nomads maybe, and traders. Kerma was actually the trade center between Egypt and Africa, a great deal of Egypts trade flowing through it. In fact, in real life Kerma was a very rich nation of traders.

    Because you can sacrifce a level for 5 extra spending points.

    And, I guess you can sacrifice it to speed up a wonder... but if wonders can't have effects, what's the point? Erez, can you explain why we would want to do this?

    Yep the Greeks are super strong. Their right now the oldest and most advanced civilzation and culture in the world. but they ahet and fight each other all the time (you can say they will be my way of keeping myself interested in the nes for the first boring expansion turns)

    I guess I can send new orders via PM, since the old ones are crappy and in-thread. Must destroy Epaminondas. And Leonidas. And Agis...Agesilaus...Lysander...Cleombrotus...
