    [14:05] <Cheetah> good :)
    [14:52] <miccofl> We need to discuss some kind of 3-way tech operation to maximize everything; perhaps a 3-way chat discussion so we can iron out some of the details so that we can proceed efficently and to the betterment of us all.
    [15:28] <Cheetah> with poly?
    [15:28] <Cheetah> I guess we could arrange a chat with all three of us
    [15:28] <miccofl> Yes, you are just in time - heading off to work

    Okay, I messed up a bit here. Could a mod possibly move this post one step up, so it's the second post in this thread?

    I say miccofl had a pointr there on that 3-way alliance. :) I support it, it makes us a little more balanced with Poly I think...

    Would some time next week be a good time for that chat, or should we have it faster than that?

    Truth be told, I don't think allying with CGN is such a good idea. We should remain neutral in the affairs of CGN and GWT, if at all possible.

    We are placed at an extreme disadvantage if either one gains control of their home continent, as then last civ standing will have enough land and resources to become an unbeatable power.

    The longer those two other nations quarrell, and the closer we stay in the middle, the better.

    I agree to some extent, Octavian. But what if the balance of power shifts to GWT? The we have a presumably hostile power in control. Remember that they will probably enlist the help of GCA, as both nations current have their UU.

    Also, let's make sure that a refusal now does not lock us out in the future. Unfortunately, we do not have much to offer either nation except gold at this point. But if Poly plays ball and we don't, we may be left out when things returned to normal(whatever that is......) ;)

    Yes, we are small, we need to be very active in diplo stuff, as we're not much good in a war. We need to use our diplo skills at the max and try to get our continent settled...

    As of right now, we should remain neutral but be favorable to CGN. GWT hasn't proven itself trustworthy, yet. IF CGN begins to falter by the hands of GWT, we should have a three way discussion bewteen CGN, Apolyton, and us to discuss the problem. It would be in all three of our interests if GWT was keeped at bay.

    miccofl manged to say this in the embassy:

    [22:45] <miccofl> do you need the turn?
    [22:45] <miccofl> I added you to the list
    [22:45] <miccofl> nevermind, wrong embassy

    Anyone wanna speculate? Or is it just a question to a team-mate, as I think it is?

    Doubt this has any relevance to anything, but I just felt like posting it. :rolleyes:

    "wrong embassy" :confused: Without that he could have been talking to a teammate who wants to see the turn, but that makes it a bit weird...

    Had a short little chat with miccofl just now. To give a short summary: They have Theology and would like to trade, and they don't like GCA galleys.

    [22:17] <miccofl> We will have Theology available in a turn or two, care to make an offer?
    [22:18] <Cheetah> hm
    [22:18] <Cheetah> im willling at least :)
    [22:18] <Cheetah> i'll inform the senate right away
    [22:19] <Cheetah> btw, we are now a republic :D
    [22:19] <miccofl> Congratulations
    [22:19] <Cheetah> thanks :)
    [22:20] <Cheetah> we just hope GCA will stop the war with us, so we wont suffer from ww
    [22:20] <miccofl> they fouled the issue when they sank poly's boat
    [22:21] <Cheetah> they sank polys boat?
    [22:21] <miccofl> we are none too pleased about their having galleys les than 6 turns from our waters
    [22:22] <miccofl> yep
    [22:22] <Cheetah> they have a lot of luck with those ships, as with their units...
    [22:22] <miccofl> I have authorization to sink on sight
    [22:22] <Cheetah> we lost or galley to their galley in the lake as well
    [22:22] <miccofl> just like we did to GWT a few turns back
    [22:22] <miccofl> only GWT doesn't know if it was us or barbs
    [22:22] <Cheetah> I'm afraid Luckys luck extends to the seas as well :/
    [22:23] <Cheetah> hehe :)
    [22:24] <miccofl> our "canal-zone" proved its usefulness already
    [22:24] <miccofl> and they will play hell trying to take it
    [22:24] <Cheetah> canal-zone?
    [22:25] <miccofl> New Castle - Boston
    [22:25] <Cheetah> erm.. im not updated on the geography over there...
    [22:26] <Cheetah> you've built a new city?
    [22:26] <miccofl> we can pass through the continent
    [22:26] <Cheetah> ah k :)
    [22:27] <miccofl> Been negotiating with GWT?
    [22:28] <Cheetah> not much
    [22:28] <Cheetah> trying to make some realy good replies to convince them to destroy GCA or at least make them make peace with us
    [22:29] <miccofl> good luck
    [22:29] <Cheetah> i think we'll need it :p
    [22:29] <Cheetah> but i gotta go
    [22:29] <miccofl> later
    [22:29] <Cheetah> there's a great tv-show comming up now :)
    [22:29] <Cheetah> so if there's nothing more?
    [22:30] <miccofl> nah, enjoy :)
    [22:30] <Cheetah> cya :)

    Here, Cheetah. I grabbed a screenshot of the CGN canal for you to check out. Pretty inventive.

    Also, during the save, CGN offered us Theology. What do we want to give for it? Please send a note out to them that our refusal this turn was due to needing further discussion on the matter, and that we are still interested.

    Thanks!

    I think I would have done so too. :)

    And those three cities are on the GWT war front. Can you imagine what it must be like for them to hold their ground there?

    But they're the only cities on the front IIRC, so it's not that bad...
