    Current Armed Forces:
    15 Warriors
    1 Archer
    7 Spearmen
    5 Swordsmen
    3 Horsemen
    3 Galley

    Tasks of the Armed forces:

    - 1 Warrior NE of New Falcon's Haven o go to Vandelay for Garrison

    - 1 Swordsmen in Groton to Guard Settler in production at Sanction
    - 1 Swordsmen S of Montipellier to Guard Settler in Montipellier
    - 1 Warrior to Guard Settler there

    - 1 Spearmen in New Falcon's Haven, 19 Turns, Garrison
    - 1 Swordsmen in VM, 7 Turns, Head towards Egyptian Front
    - 1 Warrior in Mure, 1 Turn, To Upgrade at Groton
    - 1 Spearmen in Raven's Flight, 6 Turns, Garrison
    - 1 Swordsmen in Sante Lucia, 7 Turns, Egyptian Front

    - the 2 Galleys S and N of Raven's Flight to explore Egypts coast for more ships.
    - 1 Warrior N of St. Octaviansburg to Get in striking distance of the Egypitian settler
    - 1 Horsemen NW of Cijam to Get in striking distance of the Egypitian settler
    - 1 Warrior E of Huntington to go to Egyptian Front
    - 1 Horseman W of Sante Lucia to go to Egyptian Front



    These warriors are to proceed to the nearest barracks and upgrade to swordsmen. Groton and VM have barracks.

    No current offensives against other civs, Barbarian threat is cleared. We are at even strength with babylon militarily, and the "Agressive expansionism" policy can work smoothly from the outset as we now have a good sized military. Troops are beginning to mobilize and head towards the Egyptian border as a result of their settler landing.

    Any units without instructions are instructed to stay where they are if a Garrison or sentry or to continue exploring if otherwise.

    Here are the cash and slider instructions:

    Slider instructions: The slider will be kept at 90% science for the next few turns. When there are three turns remaining on Republic, the DP will check the slider and lower it if we can do so without increasing the number of turns that it would take to research it. This is to be repeated when there are two and one turn left to research Republic. Once Republic is researched, we will revert to 90% science funding. Additionally, the lux slider is to be set at 10% until Turn 1, so that a citizen in Vandelay can work another flood plain tile without riot, generating a settler in one turn. The slider is to revert to 0% lux after Turn 1, and may be raised or kept at 10% only if absolutely necessary to avoid riot.

    Cash instructions: A maximum of 200 gold may be used for unit upgrades and anything else that is absolutely necessary.

    strong recommendation
    if we revolt, please mm all cities for max growth (shields and commerce are lost in anarchy) while not revolting

    wishlist for worker actions in Audiac
    while as Governor I cannot give instructions, I would like to give the following suggestions:

    worker NNE: irrigate; road; SE; mine and road mountain (lots of effort, but we need the shields)

    New Falcon's Heaven:
    irrigate; NE-E; road forrest; W-NW; irrigate; road

    Raven's Flight:
    clear, mine, road; N; clear, mine; SW; clear, mine, road; E; clear, mine, road
    any further increase of workforce appreciated, since we place high priority on Raven's Flight culture expansion

    St. Octaviansburg:
    finish mine, road; and then:
    worker 1: E; irrigate; road; join Raven's Flight dejungle team
    worker 2: if we settle Z: NW; road, NW; road; NW; mine hill; road; (this should help the settlement planned at Z/blue)

    worker 2NW: finish road; if we war Egypt: road to wines; otherwise: S; irrigate; road; SE; irrigate; road

    First I'd like to apologise for 2 things.
    1) I will be deep asleep during the Turnchat, so I can't join.
    2) I misinterpreted the date and left the polls open for 1 extra day.

    There are 3 T&T polls running. Please see the outcome at the beginning of the turnchat as the legal instruction.

    Construction trade poll. The option with the most votes is to be chosen. If 2 or more end equally; the DP is free to choose which of those options is chosen. If this poll decides to trade for construction, please do also check the:

    Further trades poll for further trades. This poll indicates to which other civs, besides Germany, we also trade Polytheism. We only trade if the Civ with the highest number of votes gets more votes than the "nobody" option.
    The Civs we trade Polytheism to must meet 2 conditions:
    1 - That Civ must be the winner of the poll, or within a 2 vote margin of the winning Civ.
    2 - They must have something nice to offer; nice defined as a lux AND/OR a tech AND/OR >10gpt AND/OR >100 gold AND/OR a combination. Do maximise the outcome.
    It is impossible for me to check on forehand what the optimum is; trades change constantly, even during trades. The DP can decide (depending on what the Civs have to offer) whether to do the trades or not.
    If a Civ meets condition 1, but not 2, the DP is free to check later in the TC if that civ meets condition 2 and do the trade then.

    The 3rd poll is
    What to research after Republic? This is a very clear poll. The tech with the highest vote that is possible to research when we learn Republic is the winner. If it is a tie, the DP decides.

    If any part of these instructions are unclear, unworkable or illegal, the DP is free to change what he desires. I do consider a check by the Judiciary possible in those circumstances. Not to punish, but to better allign T&T instructions to the DP's need.

    Good luck in the TC.

    We are all in suspense. Did we trade polytheism to Babylon? Did we check which free tech they got?

    Here is the summary of the 1st turn chat of Term 3 held on Mar 4 GMT. The major event of this chat were:
    • Babylon declared war. In between turns 4 and 5, Babylon requested that we give them contact with Egpyt. Per instructions from FA, we refused and Babylon declared war. No units of theirs were seen moving except the one they already had in Berry Province.
    • We traded Polytheism to Germany for Construction and 68 gold. No other trades were available during the chat in exchange for Polytheism.
    • In between turns 1 and 2, a massive barbarian uprising occurred. From 2 camps, 24 Marcomanni Horsemen arrived next to Sanction. The next turn, they killed one Spearman and one Swordsman, and pillaged Sanction for: Settler production, 2 population, and 234 gold. One turn after Sanction was pillaged once more for 13 gold. We then got a Swordsman to take control of the town.
    • Russia appears to be sending a Settler pair towards our site B, to the east of Sanction.
    • Egypt settled in our Northern Desert between the river and wines.
    • Russia entered the Middle Ages and acquired Monotheism.
    • Bootsville is founded at site A, SW of Montpellier.

    Set build queues.
    Move units.
    Trade Poly to German for Construction and 68 gold
    Trading Poly to Russia and India is a no-go
