    Anyone wanna apply for deputy?
    I'll be gone for a week this month, and thus my deputy will have a definite and important role to play. :D

    Usually I favor a loose city placement

    I'd like to see a lot of cities as quickly as possible. With the Celts, we should be able to do this.

    CommandoBob has raised something in the TNT thread about our Golden Age - we could quickly research Iron Working which would give us our Unique Unit and the good possiblity of a despotic Golden Age. I don't think that this is a good idea, we should have a good number of cities and be in a better Government before that happens so our research needs to be guided by our Government choices - do we want to go for Republic or Monarchy, perhaps we need some discussion about that quickly help guide our early research path.

    I concur. A golden age in despotism with few cities would be a waste. From my gut feeling I would go for Republic. However, it is possible that some events in the game or the situation we find ourselves in upon starting may make it desirable to have Monarchy soon. So let's have a look once we know the starting position.

    What do you mean by loose placement? If that means mostly CxxxC with terrain considerations, that would be fine by me, at least in the core. If its more CxxxxC with lots of wasted tiles, I'm not so sure. We want nice big cities, but we also want a strong empire. Call me a concerned citizen (AKA as a busybody;) )

    Usually I play with a CxxxC, but that's in my own games. I would probably go with more of a tighter approach in this game to get a strong core of cities early on with a low amount of corruption and maximum usage of land tiles, especially if we get an early golden age triggered by the use of our UU. Anyway I hope that answers your question.

    Domestic Leader (or would you prefer Domestic Minister?) DaveShack, it appears our next Settler will be borne this Turn Chat (Sunday). Any ideas on where we should place our second city?

    we are short of food bonuses which we need for a fast growing city and have little time to find another site. Tara is 2 tiles off the coast, it looks like there is another coastal tile off to the East. Settling on the North bank of the Tara River by the coast, 1E of our exploring Warrior may not give a high food city but it would be a useful one.

    1E looks like an excellent site for a city. If it is in fact on the coast, might I suggest Moira as the city's name? It's a lovely name and is also similar to the Celtic prefix for sea (mori or morino). It would also keep with the burgeoning theme of giving our cities female names.
