    This session will be offline (as I'm having electrical work done htat day and it may make the start time 'flexible' - plus hardly anyone appears at my TCs: I blame the timezone not my tedious reporting of events ;) )

    Anyone who is an official, please post your instructions in this thread before I start.

    Current save is here.

    A few appear to be able to trade Music and stuff we're not going for. When actually negotiating, there was no deal that seemed reasonable - but that may just be me
