Secretary of State
cancel copper for 4gpt deal (Russia) and make a wheat for 5gpt deal (also Russia), if Peter doesn't accept then make a clam for 5gpt deal.
At the moment, I don't think we should get a peace deal, but if war weariness is getting to high, or a large stack of Bismarck threatens our lands, then try making a peace deal with him giving us something, or a peace deal with no-one giving anything.
Stop if: -we meet a new civ, -someone declares war on us.
Abydos--complete the market and set to catapult. If war finishes assign one citzen to the horse and the other to the grass.
Old Sarai and Constitution Falls--if war finishes change the city to maximum growth and change the build to barracks.
It may be necessary to push this one back a bit. We tried to see Pirates of the Caribbean yesterday and it was completely sold out, so we're trying again today. If it's rescheduled it will be 10PM Monday night (0500 Tuesday morning GMT).
To attack Berlin without suffering damage to land in Licentia
Move cats (with defenders) to Berlin and reduce the defences. Suicide the cats to soften up the defenders and then release further troops to finish the job. The tiles we'll use for the attack are the hill 1N of Berlin and the pigs 1NW of Berlin.
Maintain a strong garrison in Basillica which is the most likely point of German counter-attack and at least 2 defenders in other border cities.
Maintain some defenders on our borders to cover counter-attacks and provide refuge for any seriously damaged troops.
Please carry out any promotions I explicitly mention below. If I don't mention a possible promotion, leave that unit unpromoted unless it is likely to be in conflict with the enemy (in attack or defence). In that case, promote as seems most appropriate to you at the time.
Rename archer 'Def3 a' (2S of Toot Uncommon) to 'TU garr b' and move to Toot Uncommon.
Rename the crossbow 'Def1 d' (2N1W of Basillica) to 'Ba garr j' and move to Basillica.
Rename archer 'Ba garr i' (in Basillica) to 'Def2 d' and promote to Guerilla I. Move it to forest 2E1S of Basillica.
Move axe 'Def1b' (in Fort Impervious) to forest 1SW of Basillica.
Move archer 'Def2 a' (2NE of Basillica) to hilly jungle one square NE.
Ensure archer 'Ba garr b' (1N2E of Basillica) is fortified.
Move 2 catapults (1NW of Basillica) to the forest 2E1S of Basillica.
Rename horse archer 'Ba garr d' (in Basillica) to 'Def1 e' and move to forest 1SW of Basillica.
Move the two cats 3N1W of Basillica to the forest 1SW of Basillica.
The units grouping 2E1S of Basillica are attack group Alpha and the ones grouping 1SW of Ba are attack group Beta. Alpha will go to the hill 1N of Berlin and Beta will go to the pigs 1NE of Berlin. Neither should set off until BOTH have the minimum units:
Alpha - Sword, 3 cats, spear
Beta - archer, horse archer, 2 cats.
Once both are ready, start moving. Each one can attack Berlin as soon it is in position.
Cats should be promoted Barrage I if poss. If further promos are available, then: Accuracy for 1 or 2 if city defences still in place, otherwise mixture of Barrage II, Combat I and City Raid I. Further promos for a cat should follow it's predecessor (eg City raid II, combat II).
Use horse archers to pillage stuff we are on, or tiles closer to Licentia. Also the farm and village north of Dortmund if it looks safe. Retreat if danger.
Once defences are down, sacrifice cats and then use other units as appropriate.
Attacking German units
Attack units in Germany if got 80% or better chance of winning.
Attack units in Licentia south of Basillica if got 65% or better chance. If units penetrate past Basillica use appropriate nearby troops to eliminate them.
Basillica Garrison: This should remain at 1 axe, 1 crossbow and 2 archers minimum.
The guards with the units 1E of Basillica should remain with those workers.
Crossbow to complete in NPC in 1 turn: move to forest 1 SW of Basillica and fortify.
Any other units that move of get built: reinforce whichever attack group requires them.
If you can build military units and have no instructions, consider cat, spear, crossbow, axe.
