    We will finish horseback riding this turn. Our allies have:
    Kaz: Aesthetics, Archery, Metal Casting
    Cav: Currency

    San and Sat both have Archery, Metal Casting, Currency, Feudalism

    We are up
    Hunting on Cav
    Poly and Math on San
    Poly, Civil Service, Calendar, and Construction on Sat

    Therefore our alliance is up at least HBR, Construction, and Aesthetics, and down Feudalism.
    I don't think there is anything important after Feudalism that San and Sat might have. Can anyone confirm that?

    Our research opportunities
    Feudalism 1046, 11 turns
    Theology 747, 9 turns
    Aesthetics - trade
    Currency - trade
    Philosophy 1196, 13 turns
    Paper 897, 10 turns
    Archery - trade
    Metal Casting - trade
    Compass - useless unless we want a suprise attack by sea

    After trades
    Machinery 1046, 14 turns

    This is timely -- Kaz have suggested the alliance research Machinery, Feudalism, Paper. They would like to take Machinery.

    I'm going to do the following:

    Ask Saturn if they have any interest in Civil Service for Feudalism+Archery.
    Ask Cav and Kaz if they object to the trade with Saturn

    If no trade, which do you prefer - Feudalism or Paper?
    If paper, maybe we should aim for Liberalism first?

    Good post.
    My opinion
    Compass isn't useless, because with currency we get 2 TW each City and a harbor gives us +50% (most +0,5) sometimes (often) +1 (round down).

    Btw
    We 've cs, are we in bureaucracy?
