    Greetings Innovia

    The watchfull eyes of Aloha's sages have noticed your discovery of Alphabet, this would mean many trading opportunities for you, we were interested in advancing both of our civs. We were interested in arranging a chat between our two great nations, via msn or the like.

    Being the overworked university student that i am, i can be availiable whenever really sometimes even sober so just need a time when at least one of your team mates is free

    Regards
    BCLG




    hows about that then?

    Also BC you should send a PM to Theoden as a back up to make sure they get it quickly

    This was in our gmail box.

    Looks like they are looking to trade too. A hunting - mysticism swap would be a good way to break the ice. Apart from that there is a lot of possibilities.

    Hmmm the hunting mysticm swap i think is quite in our favour also.

    Now do others want to be at this chat? i dont mind organising a set date and time or whatever but id prefer to just add theoden and then both of us have this chat when we can sit down and both have time, however i dont mind :)

    what we need to think about is what to discuss.

    Technology trading, we want to get alphabet as quickly as possible however at last count they already had IW did they not? therefore if we were to trade MC it would take a great deal of trust for us to get future beakers tech :)

    also do we want to trade metal casting away so early.

    We're researching math right now arnt we, do we tell them this? I see no harm in this as we shall have it soon enough anyways and will show up on tech trades :)

    anything else i need to discuss? get details about the team and gameplan etc is an obvious one but that might not be able to happen :)

    No one in the game has Iron Working. I guess everyone noticed we were spread out.

    Mysticism is only 14 beakers more than Hunting (71 vs 57) Also Loco knows Myst and i would bet they don't have hunting which makes myst cheaper in comparison to Hunting so a think its a pretty even swap.

    The only other techs available to trade is MC for us and Alpha for them.
    I would not be trading MC without something substantial in return and no credit, payment up front.

    Now we have Maths in 5, so that could be used to try to get Alpha or at least some religious techs.

    Basically see what you can get out of them as far as what they are thinking short to medium term. If we can get some sort of tech trading talks going it would be good, i don't expect them to be rushing into an agreement, then again we wont want to either. Just though of it try to get a feel for what they think about.

    Apart from that set up a time that works for Theoden and yourself, if i can make it i will. Just remember to save the talk for posting here later and that about it

    Well MC=450 beakers, alpha= 300 beakers and math=250 beakers.

    we could offer to trade hunting and math for alphabet, this would be slightly in their favour but no matter, its not like we *especially* need myst for the time being, ill send an e-mail to innovia with my msn and just say to catch me whenever or they can orgainse a time if they want more than theoden there :)

    hows about that?

    The message is good

    If i'm on when you do i'll join you but i'll let you do the talking. Don't want too many chiefs;).

    It ok to use the base beaker rates as they are all relative.

    As an idea for an expanded trade, we give Maths and Sailing (next on research) for Myst and Alpha, which is equal beakers wise.

    Key things are, they dont really want to trade alpha away too much just yet, they're researching CoL next.

    they offered CoL for math, sailing and myst.

    also thoughts about a tech alliance, maybe we should get one written up?

    Good chat.

    The tech alliance is good thing for us. If we can come up with a comprehensive tech deal now and coordination in the future then it would put us in a good position.

    Also as far as MC goes if the tech trade happens around turn 100 or after then i have no problem with it. Also no problems with the tech we get from each other staying off limits to trading to a 3rd party.

    I figure it would be better to get a firm ally now, or at least duel research for the next hundred turns or so.

    if we want a tech partnership we should look up the tech tree and draw up an equal beaker ratio thing, maybe leaving loco to research the lesser techs?

    This in from Innovia.

    I'm will go ahead with it as we all agreed before hand that it was acceptable.

    As a record.

    We have/will give Hunting 57, Sailing 143, Maths 357, MC 643 = 1200 beakers
    Innovia: Mysticism 71, Poly 143, Alpha 429, CoL 500, Priests 85 = 1228 beakers
    So we own 28 beakers after the trade is complete.

    Good work to all:goodjob:

    I will play the save now, report soon in presidents thread

    Edit- I will add that stipulation that we can't trade techs we recieve to 3rd parties.
