There's something going on in my current game that i dont quite understand. I have met the germans. i have been at war with the germans. there is a german city just outside my borders (the rest of their cities aer far away, they took this one from the french). I currently have a mutual protection pact with the germans. I think I have an embassy with the germans (you need one to investigate cities and steal techs right?). I have a couple trades going on with the germans and I currently have a knight standing outside Berlin. Yet when I go to my foriegn advisor, the bismark's picture is NOT there. It's as if I hadn't made contact with them yet when I dont think I've had as much contact with any other civ in the game. I was just wondering what the hell is going on or if anyone has any ideas.
