    HR would give them extra happiness from units so they migh be aiming for bigger cities. They might have gotten a CS slingshot, if they had aimed for it from turn 1, they might be the top gold team for all we know. MC is also possible, we will only know when we meet them

    Its been a while coming but here is our first contact with Epsilon

    Can you believe the balls on these guys eh? "Just 500g", "easy payment plan", "we can work it out", man is GW a used car saleman in RL:lol: ?

    I will another letter off to Loco tonight to see if i can get anything out of them, if not we have the option to work out a deal with Epsilon.

    You misread it "Theology(500 ) for just 200 gold." So it's 200 lump of gold, good deal if you ask my opinion. We can make 200 gold in 3 turns.

    I did read 200g but wrote 500:crazyeye:. It is a good deal but i'm hesistant to give them gold, it part of the DaveMcW plan he used so well in the MTDG pitboss game.

    The thing to ask is why are they will to off load to so cheaply when they are the tech leaders, no doubt they are getting a lot out of it too. I've composed another offer to Loco (see Loco thread), have a look and see if its ok before i send it off. However if Loco are not willing to deal we will have to look at doing a deal with Epsilon, although i prefer to swap them Music and get some gold from them

    This was in our gmail box

    I bet they are cursing they didn't get to music sooner;)

    I don't know if we are that desperate for Compass, maybe we could look at a drama-compass deal

    Mail from Epsilon.

    I am a bit irritated how Epsilonians try to get advantage for every tech they see we have. Are they doing same for other teams? I think they do.

    OB would benefit us.

    I dont know about the trade...BUT one thing is clear we need to establish a "trading tech embargo" against Epsilon. OR do we make nice to them so they do not get involved once we start kicking piffle in the head.

    I am for the open borders deal. Undecided on the trade deal....does any of our allies have it.

    The trade is a fairly good one for us, gives us philosophy which iirc also helps us research divine right quicker (dont quote me on that).

    Hmm i see the point in OB and commerce etc, however what may happen (it hasnt happened yet) is religion spreading. though i suppose its a risk we have to take.

    From memeory Innovia asked us not to trade feudalism with anyone else, correct me if i'm wrong.

    The open borders is good but i don't like the traders only bit, its a big advantage to them because...

    1. They can have religion spread and see into our land but we wont be able to see into theres and most importantly...

    2. Don't know if anyone else noticed but both Piffle and Epsilon have Paper and i would bet my left ***** that they have traded map already and epsilon can see what piffle already have.

    And if we're about to go to war with Piffle, it doesn't make sense to do any trading with their best friends. I'd make up some excuse to not go through with the trade. Either that, or we should stall the trade and just act like we are negotiating until our units land to take what we want for free.:devil:

    Ok just say that the team we trade with to get it requested us not to trade it.

    Its a trap question or win/win situation for us. They say "Well we can make the deal better for you"...we know they can not be trusted because they want us to break trust. They say "OK. We understand." Then we stop them and Piffle from getting the trade.

    I wouldn't tell them that either, just say the deal doesn't work for us much in the way they said they were not interested in Music before we even offered it. Just say we are not interested in buying philo.

    I'm still against the offer. We should be loyal to team Innovia. Respect their wish for not to trade Feudalism.

    I'm guessing that 2nd message arrived before BC sent our one back.

    Still its an interesting insight. Why are they so desperate for feudalism?

    It a good tech but no to the lenghts they are prepared to go it seems. I wonder if the are hitting up Innovia. Maybe we should send them a message and see if they are getting the same letters.

    Whats so great about feudalism unless they are planning an attack on someone with horses. In away...giving them feudalism via trade will help them make our UU not so special. Yes they can research it but it makes them spend the time doing so.

    Let them rot. I agree we need to talk to Innovia and see if they are getting those same messages. We also need to see if we can solidify our bond with Innovia. I think we should think about the possibility of overing them some sort of long term deal...say we offer a non-agrressive pact till 3 teams or left or a 10-15 turn warning. That would allow us to focus all our defense and worries in one direction and give us a good strong allie. make sure to stress its only a non-agrression pact not a mutual defensive pact. Its time to start playing "lets make a deal".

    You lost me, why do you need feudalism to attack with horses?
