    I opened the save to find GCA offering peace. PEACE!?! I promptly decline.

    I also unloaded one pike onto Iceland (the green one). I can get two settlers onto the boat next turn, and get them off the turn after that. See the fireside chat for discussion on what to do.

    If it is not wrong in any way, I have re-convened the Shen Ling Settler Factory, Inc. GCA has ONE city left on our continent. After which I would like the Foreign advisor to create a letter to GWT, outlining what the backstabbing B****es have done to us, hopefully convincing them to kill GCA. It is a looooong shot, but worth the attempt.

    No RPG story today, I think my turnlog tells a good enough story ;)

    CGN has issued a request to go within our cultural borders in two turns with their galley. What do you say?

    And they have Chivalry now. Shall I talk to them about a price?

    CG - I never knew it had gotten THAT nasty. If that ban wasn't a perm-ban, I'd just steer clear of GC. But if they have permbanned you, report it to mongoose. Obviously a cooling off period may be good, but completely BANNING someone from another site simply because they are from another site, would be a BIG no-no.

    Just to clarify, they did not ban CG solely because he was from CFC, but that may have been a factor in their decision.

    Let's see...

    We can probably turn down the med. inf. production a notch. Seems excessive at this point, unless we're planning an attack overseas.

    Finally got a chance to look at a save. Here's a few pointers to give us an extra boost:

    1. Why did the workers skeedaddle from Yun Qiuling again? If we don't begin irrigating that Flood Plain soon, we may as well pack it in.

    2. I also recommend having a worker join Jiang Mapi. The current population is 2 Happy/2 Content so this city can grow at least one more spot without immediate risk.

    3. Put an entertainer in Shen Ling and drop the Luxury rate back down to 0%(its currently 20%). The only reason we have the lux rate that high is because of our capital. Fix this problem and we have more to devote to Science. Remember, we could really use Riders just in case anything wierd happens.

    4. Switch Shen Ling from Settler to Worker. Even with an entertainer, we can still get the worker in two turns.

    5. Switch Xiang Zhou from Worker to Harbor. A worker build there will put this city back to Size 1. With a Harbor(and production is halved), we can then join workers there to use the coastal tiles for extra commerce.

    6. I am a bit leary about sending our Settlers to found cities on the front lines until all is rectified. I would rather we secure former Santopia and Lucky Town first.

    7. Anyone up for starting an embassy with Poly so that we can investigate PoV? An embassy with Poly would go for around 50g IIRC, and I can't imagine that it would cost very much to investigate a Size 1 city far away from their capital.

    8. The big island is still waiting for Settlers, and would help our commerce push for Chivalry.

    As you will hopefully see, it all starts with irrigating the tiles at Yun Qiuling. Once those tiles start producing food, that city will be a Settler/Worker factory of our dreams, allowing us to devote other cities to military, libraries and temples.

    Also, the more workers we can join to cities that can retain their happiness with the new citizens, the more commerce we can get to devote to our research for Chivalry. These workers should obviously come from abundant food centers like Yun Qiuling.

    Finally, let's proceed with caution in our dealings with Apolyton, and not leave ourselves vulnerable even to them. The PoV founding makes me nervous for our future. That's why I want some reassurance with an investigation of that city. Long story short, we are in a position where we should trust no one.

    That's all I've got. Thanks! :)
