    Thanks, CG, but I must decline. I am having a hard enough time devoting my time to Audiac Province, let alone all of Fanatica.

    However, it would be my honor to nominate the incumbent DaveShack, as well as a rising star known simply as tao. I believe that both of these fine citizens have what it takes to get our domestic priorities in order.

    I have seen his contributions, so I second Tao for this position. I will also support Daveshack as well.

    Im giving it second thoughts since Tao has accepted his nomination and I dont want to run against someone that is a rising star.

    Question to the candidates:

    This term will be an important one for Fanatica. Our neighbors grow closer, good land becomes scares and the potential for conflict grows. Essential to our continued success is your ability to manage our outlying cities and coordinate the efforts of all cities.

    During your term, what are your infrastructure objectives?

    We are, however, the French! Full of glorious history and culture!

    During your term, what wonders will you propose we start, and where?

    My expansion plan is here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=79733

    During that expansion I will build The Great Library in Vo Mimbre. If started now it will be builded faster then in Germany (179turns), Babylon (115 turns) and India (120 turns).

    The only one who can build it faster, is Russia. But as Vo Mimbre will grow we will build mines, or even take over Moscow (where TGL is built). But this will happen probably after the end of the war with Babylon, because supplying army with new units will be more important. If nothing changes...

    A seriously old guy, aprox 15,000 years old steps out of the shadows.
    People gasp! SaaM!
    Yea yea, enough self made drama. My question to Krabius is where did he come up with these numbers (and did he look @ the TC report? TGL is gone to the Germans)

    SaaM

    I must respectfully decline as I don't have enough time right now to continue to do the position justice. Plus it's time to give others a chance to show their leadership, in much the same way as I was given that chance about this time last game. :D

    huh, i checked 410 BC save that was the latest yesterday. But now i see that somehow the Germans built it already (250BC). Ill check the new file.


    EDIT: Oh I think I understand how they built it so quick. They moved the building of TGL from Konigsberg to their capital at Berlin.

    Well the AI has its own intellect, and I will learn to count all the possible wonder "accelerations" they can make.

    Ah-ha! An uncontested race!

    The best elections are those that are uncontested - I therefore nominate Ravensfire to the election for the Minister of Internal Affairs!

    And I accept!

    As for my plans, errr, uhhhh, thatwillhavetowaitIamatworkandcannotreallylookatthingsnowsorry.

    Or something like that. ;)
