    I did quite a lot of micromanaging this turn. I did a bit of Yndy's list, but concentrated more on Medieval infantry than Marketplaces. The war isn't over yet, and I think we're underestimating GCA's power.

    Next turn the two pikemen will reach Greenland (The icy one). In four turns, a settler will be landed on Iceland (The green one). I will also be amalgamating our army into one stack of doom to take Blacksand. Our offensive units will be more effectively defended that way.

    I want to post pictures, but so far no-one has told me how to update the secure server. Instead of taking pictures of every individual city, I took screenies of Domestic and Military instead, which gives you virtually the same info, except for laborer placement. Request for more detailed pictures.

    The Fanatikou were a troubled tribe. Ever since the beginning of their existance, things were turning on them. Their first friends betrayed them, crippling the nation for two thousand years. The Fanatikou were feeling a change in the wind.

    The feud between Fanatikou and their blood enemy, the evil GameCatcher Alliance, had already cost them their closest friend. Yet an even greater ally was to come by, this one by the name of Markos of Apolyton. He and his mercenaries promised to re-adjust the balance of power. What they had started was the collapse of Lucky the 'Lucky', the tyrant in charge of the Evil Alliance.

    This gave the Fanatikou the opportunity to build a great army. Great hordes emerged from Shen Ling, inciting so much fear into the Catcherians that they ran and hid. However, they all assembled in their last stronghold, ready to create disarray. This was to be the greatest test that Fanatikou was to face.

    Sounds nice. :goodjob:

    How many turns are there left on Monotheism? It would be important to know.

    BTW, did you remember to send Monotheism to Poly? What did you start to research?

    Hm, I should check my memory or something, I forgot to send out the AD 170 saves. :-/

    Anyway, this looks good. Except for the names of the islands. I wanted the big green one to be called Greenland, and the little icy one to be called Iceland...

    Still, I would still like these islands to be named the way Greenland and Iceland SHOULD have been named in RL :p

    GBM, find and downlad a FTP client, and contact me sometime in the chatroom. I'll try to direct you from there. :)

    As far as the naming of the Islands go, I agree with Cheetah. Whoever named them in R/L did a "balls up".

    Cyc: Well, as I've heard it (I'm not sure if this is just facts, or just a story.) when people (norwegians :) ) came to Iceland, it was such a nice place that they wanted it for themself. They named the island Iceland to make it sound like a barren and cold place, so no one else would come and settle.

    When someone later came to Greenland and settled there, they wanted more people to join them. So they called it Greenland, to make it sound like a fertile and nice place. :p

    Actually, IIRC, there's a nice rundown in the old Term 3 Instruction thread, where ever it is...

    Are we going to create an enmass of Med Inf to attack GCA's Cities?

    There is ONE city left pledging allegiance to the Gamecatcher Alliance. We shouldn't build more Med Infs than what we need.

    I checked last turn's save, and unless the situation has changed we have an average military compared to GCA, despite their being down to only one city. BTW, what city is the last one remaining? Is it Port Blacksand?

    Yes. Port Blacksand.

    Their assumed strength is 6 offensive units, 1 Veteran Horseman, 1 Elite Spearman and 3 Veteran Pikes.

    Hmm... nice. :) We can surround them and put up a siege with Poly to keep them where they are until we get troops to destroy them. :nya:
