    Foreign Ministry Orders

    Treaties
    I would recommend canceling open borders with Monty as it does us no good and only allows his agents to use our roads.

    Espionage
    I think the Assembly has aproved a 10% bump on the espionage slider.
    Specific ep spending will be Caesar weight 4, Justin and Churchill weight 1 and Gandhi weight 5.

    Trades
    Justinian: sell Divine Right for 380 gold/ map
    Also trade rice for incense and bananas for 13 gpt

    Units
    Continue to explore with our spy.

    The slider vote is still pending in the States General Assembly hall, so far the vote is (1-0)/4.

    The treaty and trades are all well done, and don't need to pass through the States General, but we might want to sift it through while we have the time.

    I'm happy to receive feedback from all players that is why I try to post my proposals early, but since I can't post in the assembly thread and explain my reasoning I'd prefer if they were discussed here in the foreign ministry thread.

    Well, I didn't want to do this but I can't shake the feeling that not enough people have posted opinions or answered other opinions.

    I want to reschedule the TC for tomorrow. (The end of the weekdays for some and the beginning of a weekend for others). I will be able to play latter that day (for me) at around this time or latter.

    I was going to just make some all around builds and some military moves/builds as well, but there are just too many options for cities like Edori that I feel they should be discussed.

    Sorry for any inconvenience for anyone.

    I'm not sure that another day of inactivity will bring people back to the game. Its almost over now, it may be that some people find the end game kind of dull. I personally enjoy the modern age and am looking forward to the TC.

    Another point to keep in mind is that the current government structure keeps potentially active players out of many useful roles.

    It looks like that was right.

    I'll schedule this TC for the same time tonight, hopefully that will give it enough time to be seen.

    I only played 5 turns and made some adjustments on the 6th. The last turn I got a lot of open builds, and, I thought it would be a great time to get some wonders in as some costs were cheap.

    I started some builds (didn't make progress fyi) on wonders that could be followed, however some are just placeholders. Either way, the States General should vote on these.

    We did, however, get a Great Engineer out of Warfire, though!! I quickly sent him to make Mining Inc in Madrid. I didn't start Executive production right after that, though, because I thought a Shale Plant was a quicker and more beneficial build right then.

    Other then that, here are some major points:

    Kinda obvious, we don't want that...

    Yes!

    Sorry if that's hard to see, as this is one of the bigger ones. Democracy would be nice to have, but it is to cheap a research to give Churchill a potential chance at Industrialization through better health.

    Same goes for this one as above. I absolutely hate the Apoloistic Palace, I have never seen it do anything good. They (the western nations of Confucianism) want us to stop trading with Gandhi. As much as I wanted to defy the resolution, I could not, being against the westerners would be a bad thing, worse then losing some trades with Gandhi. Voted "No," outcome pending.

    Any more screen shots wanted?

    Its alright.

    I feel that I should have done more as I said I would be doing 5 more turns...but again there were a lot of open builds, and a lot of production values that could have been missed on.

    We do have our first corporation though!
