Working my way up to optics... If the barbs haven't held the AIs back alot I'm sure I can write the game off as a loss right after AI contact and assessment. Will post an overview once I get there, here is a small teaser on the way! Spoiler : I tried the naming convention of @Pangea and it did work! Not only this fight, but a later fight too, when I just had my galley on sleep, and the fogbuster on "sentry land", and a barb galley just suprised me by attacking the immortal boat again in 10 turns or so. Another one came down from the north, on the eastern shores. Built a trireme and a workboat from Osaka, and even though I forgot to rename it to something cool, it did do the job! I attacked to get more xp, it's so sweet if you can get a trireme or caravel to 5xp and get flank1+navigation1.
