btw, i also checked the bugs thread about this (RA fizzles) and posted to try and spur some mods involvement. its not in the confirmed bugs page and even after someone posted their saves no mod came in to confirm/unconfirm it. it goes back to June or July. for me it now makes sense to only get 1 beaker or a turns worth, but it never happened to me just for the DoF expiring. it was always for doing something antagonistic (settling, spying, etc.) to get a denouncement or even just to change from friends to neutral/hostile/guarded. did they change DoF turn limits in the patch? I remember them only being for 10 turns but i honestly ahvent been paying attention to them recently since i dont sign many RAs anymore.
