To team CFC:
We acknowledge your peace proposal as the first step to make amends for an unjust and failed war against us and to improve our relations again in order to bring more prosperity to this region.
Naturally, our nations populace and also the leadership council, have a somewhat different viewpoint on the actual realities of your current position and are also negatively prejudiced towards your nation due to your betrayal and attacks. In light of common prosperity, we are however willing to listen and make offers.
Furthermore, we believe your proposal to be too complex at this moment and we are also not willing to negotiate an overall peace with all parties (as your treaty title suggests), instead we will negotiate with every enemy individually.
Therefore, let us put forward the following, more simple, counter-proposal:
CFC-GCA Peace Treaty ~500 AD
Both nations agree to sign a permanent peace treaty and end all hostilities immediatly.
The nations agree to open borders to allow for a supervision of troop movements and to encourage free trade again. GCA reserves to right to limit entry into its territory at this time.
Both nations agree to station no invasion forces at the near coastlines and to keep all naval transports in the 'GCA-CFC sea' unloaded in plain sight.
To amend the damages inflicted on the victorious defender (GCA) and to show their goodwill, the losing attackers (CFC) will pay GCA the following reparations in exchange for peace and safety:
1. The transfer of the defensive technology known as "Feudalism".
2. The transfer of 60 gold to pay for the reconstruction of Hawk of Chiron.
3. The transfer of 3 galleys used in the failed naval invasions.
This is our current offer. Details are negotiable!
Note that we have no interest in technology trades, as we can get the technologies listed from other, more trustworthy parties at similar prices.
And of course you must have misunderstood us when you believe that we would help rebuild your military forces by exchanging units.
We await your reply,
