    Good job. This is great news. On the other hand our diplo probably just got quite a bit harder. We really have to work so we won't end up on the business end of the next dogpile.

    We will start deflecting attention by emphasizing how CivFr has been able to develop while we warred. They're the big threat. Not sure if we could make UCiv a side-trip during the CivFr war (long-shot: we provoke them into declaring war on us during the CivFR war, and then while Poly and CP go after CivFr we take down UCiv before returning to help our allies - I know, I know, it's a pipe dream...) or if they'd have to wait, at which point the debate will be Poly or UCiv.

    My biggest question is how loyal we can expect CP to be. Poly certainly will be wanting to go for the win at our expense, as will CivFr. WPC is essentially a non-entity now.

    Have I got that right?

    So that means we are next on the list to be destroyed.

    Precisely the sort of optimism we need. Let's keep courting those allies.

    In the next turn our score will drop substantially due to 15-20 grens whips, so we wont be score leader anymore. But those who understand the game know we are serious pretender for the top civ.

    All we can do for now is focus on putting RB out, once we are closer to that goal, and RB is no longer a serious threat, we will be able to see better who is the new top dog. If it is us then we can decide how best to prepare. For now we can't focus on such

    It covers a lot of things and I did not knew where to put it, but since it covers our actions as a whole for the near future I decided to put it here:

    This land division discussion has the potential to ruin the alliance. We should probably focus more on capturing as many cities as possible and cheering our allies to keep fighting as hard as they can.

    "We can always settle everything later when RB is closer to dead." That is what we must keep reassuring them. MZ is already talking like he is weary of this war and wanting to return to economic growth. As Ot4e said, there is no fair way to divide the land that all will agree on. So just keep telling them that everything will be fair and worked out nice in the end, and just keep fighting until RB is gone.

    Then once RB is gone we can postpone the division of spoils again and go after UCiv, then CivFr and so on, always putting off the division of spoils until later. We need to keep the pressure going while they are in a fighting spirit.

    Right. The 900 gold we received from CP were 850 gold CP owed to Poly and 50 gold own CP money. I guess this was what they asked for.

    Hmm, interesting:

    This is about connected with this, which we discussed right yesterday:

    Is the desire to be literally one of the winners in the war against RB and thus being spared from the combined 3-way alliance wrath with our standing armies or they see somewhere easy chunk of land and want to take it? Like the 2 island cities RB had?

    I think CivFr just wants some scraps. Similar in Civ III when one AI was beating another, the rest would eventually go after the beaten one.

    But what scraps they can hope for? They dont even have a common border with RB! What they imagine - marching trough the whole CP territory and starting to take cities under our noses? I cant imagine this myself.

    But thinking more about it, the other French team in the game - Uciv - they were ready to settle our Zulu land which we fought hard for without even hesitating in a blink of an eye... So this might be some common morale amongst French players?

    I can think of couple of reasons why they could have DoW'd RB:
    1. They could just be after some XP and GG points.
    2. They could be trying to prevent a Great Person moving freely in their land.
    3. They might want to raze some cities to prevent someone else capturing it.

    They might also have seen CFC, Apolyton, and CP working together, and don't want us three to go after them next? "Look, we're fighting RB too! We're buddies, right?"
