NUF owns 5 Triremes. The LC India Trireme, our newest vessel, could drop its Captain near Calcutta, and head back North to unload the Silk near Dehli. Then return home for a new Dip Captain. Calcutta is Indian City#5. If it is far from Dehli, the purchase of None Units may be economical. However, if the Indians then declare war and we loose them, it would be wasteful. A tricky business, since the Trireme will depart for Dehli. Dare we ever risk loosing a Trireme at sea? I vote no, sir. The Civvium Trireme, our original unit, S of Elysium, Warrior crew, could circle the new island hoping for a sign of Land to the South. It can stay down South, and begin to ferry Settlers and Caravans, such as to & from Beast Flats, going back to S Elysium Island with a Settler some day. Seems far away. The Beast Flats and MD NE NE NE areas are much more valuable generally, and we will also be using Settlers for irrigation. The Udal Trireme, on the North Viking Shore, could continue scanning that coast. The Eboracum Trireme (recently at the command of Barbs), presently loading Wine and Dip near Dellham, can ferry units to the Viking Island. It was very efficient of you, sir, to purchase and bring the Ebor Trireme over to relieve the Udal Trireme from ferry duty. The MD Trireme (nearest Ebor, empty) is exploring the NE Islands, near Antioch, whatever and whereever that is. It seems best to return to Ebor to pick up a Dip Captain. Perhaps Ebor should switch from Settler to Diplomat... This poll is open 3 days, until Saturday when MonkE moves.
