THE MAYAN INVASION 1685 We are under a serious invasion with 3 escorting caravels and 4 galleons with troops, we can safely assume these are high grade troops. First out, I think we need new civics, in line with a radically changed situation. We need instant forces to defend our Western cities, we need faster paces in cities in getting new buildings, and we need a way to handle surplus food in case we want to improve a certain city's production. The answer to this is: Nationalism (gives us riflemen for population points, up to 3 per city), Organized Religion (25 % faster building of houses) and Caste System (allows more city specialists). For now, I think we keep Hereditary Rule, as well as Free Market. For the defense against Justinians Armada and imminent invasion. We change civics this very instant, and we draft troops in Cordoba, Madrid and Barcelona, 3 riflemen in each, just to save time. I see one defense line behind the river at Banana Ford (Yellow), behind the river at Sacred Ford (Light Blue), and a mobile, flexible defense at Elephant Plains (light green). The lone caravel will upgrade to combat 2 and upgrade to frigate, and then begin the naval battles. I suggest the great general is used as a military instructor, making the draftees in Cordoba and future navies more competent troops. I am willing to take on next turnchat, to radically improve this serious situation. I am not fearing Mayas and Babylon alone, but having all nations declare war on us.
