    Here may be found the official text of all agreements that the Mad Scientists have agreed to.

    Treaty with CAVALEIROS and KAZAKHSTAN, also known as the True Triple Alliance:
    Spoiler Treaty :
    The Treaty of the True Triple Alliance (TTA):

    §0. Treaty Duration and cancellation terms

    * This treaty will last indefinitely, and can only be canceled by
    written notice 20 turns in advance.
    * Such notice to cancel the treaty can not be given before the year
    500 AD (turn 135).

    §1. Peace and Non-Aggression

    * The peoples of Cavaleiros, Kazakhstan and Mad Scientists agree to
    take no hostile action of any kind towards members of the alliance.

    §2. Open Borders

    * The peoples of Cavaleiros, Kazakhstan and Mad Scientists agree to
    open borders with each other, to allow the free passage of units and
    merchants alike.
    * This state of Open Borders will be effective immediately, on all
    sides, from the signature of this treaty.
    * This will be handled via a formal Open Borders agreement when
    possible, once Writing is commonly known within the alliance. If
    passage is needed before that time, it will be handled through a phony
    state of war.

    §3. Mutual Technological Advancement

    * The peoples of Cavaleiros, Kazakhstan and Mad Scientists agree to
    form an Exclusive Tech Alliance (ETA). No member of the ETA will buy,
    sell or trade technologies with a civ/team outside the ETA without the
    consent of the other two ETA members.

    * The peoples of Cavaleiros, Kazakhstan and Mad Scientists agree to
    cooperate on the advancement of knowledge, initially to achieve the
    following technology goals and trades as soon as possible:
    - Team Mad Scientists to give Sailing, Iron Working and Polytheism
    - Team Cavaleiros to give Meditation, Priesthood and Monarchy
    - Team Kazakhstan to give Hunting, Animal Husbandry, Writing and Alphabet

    * Members agree to carry out research at the highest sustainable
    speed, with no stockpiling of gold beyond that reasonably needed to
    deal with adverse events.
    * Exceptions to the advancement plan at any point in time may be given
    in a state of emergency, or in the case of an urgent domestic need.
    * If any member of the alliance wishes to invoke such an exception, it
    must notify the other two alliance members of its intent and reasons
    for the deviation.
    * Upon completion of any technology goal by any people, the technology
    will be traded to the other two peoples as quickly as possible, after
    Alphabet is common knowledge.

    * All members agree that mutual technological advancement will
    continue beyond the completion of the immediate technology goals, but
    that plans for the future technology goals are to be negotiated
    continuously at later points, as addendums to this treaty.
    * All members agree that a cooperative spirit is more important in
    such an alliance than strict adherence to minute advantage to the own

    §4. Resources

    * The peoples of Cavaleiros, Kazakhstan and Mad Scientists agree that
    in the case that any alliance member has a spare resource to trade,
    they will first try to negotiate a trade with the one of the other
    peoples of this treaty.
    Only if no such deal is possible will the people consider trading that
    resource to another people.

    §5. Religion

    * The peoples of Cavaleiros and Mad Scientists recognize the wishes
    and needs of the people of Kazakhstan for a religion, and will agree
    to let Kazakhstan have priority for researching any technology that
    leads to a religion, until they have managed to found one.
