    I think everything is clear for the moment.

    Ivan, if you make the turn, please don't forget to send Masonry to the Anarchos. (I did not find the time yet, to explain the results of last night's chat to the non-German speakers, but there were some major revelations. We'll make a deal for Masonry later.)

    Suggestions for workers: let's have some giants. Fafnir, Fasolt, Hymir, Ägir, Wafthrudnir, Thrymr :king:

    ??? That was agreed by me and d7! That'll damage all we have achieved last night!!

    Edit: Ok, I guess we just had "bad luck" that I didn't have any time all day to translate the results of the chat into English...
    I hope they understand that and next turn will still be ok for them.

    my German is quite alright, but I did not see any major revelations anyway... ;)

    e.g. they posted that they were dissatisfied because they did not even dare to ask for Masonry and would have needed it for a prebuild. this is no joke or translation error (only if you mean the translation from d7´s queer thoughts into human language).

    dunno if it was like that, but i understood that Ivan had alrady moves.

    anyway, the Anarchos cannot reasonably (so of course they can...) be mad about us not sending it this turn as 1. they did not even state clearly that they want it now (or did i simply not see that?) and 2. even more importantly, THEY had insisted that the two of you CANNOT agree on anything, you just talk, and then have to ask back for what your team says.

    you did that now, and i say, whatever, have them have Mas. however, i would prefer that they keep the plan, which said, MAS+sth for MM!

    I would have liked to explore into that coastal area by the northern curragh for one more turn. :rolleyes: it will be a long time until we come somewhere around here again.

    Glaston: 2 more turns working all shield tiles, then 2 turns without growth and a geek will finish the granary with 2 food open in the bin.

    Carlion should be set to growth, I´d say: work both flood plains.

    Did you notice that we are #1 in production suddenly??? This says two things for me:
    1. the gap towards the leading tribes was never very big
    2. all of them are playing the "small towns REX strategy"
    All in all, they should fall into that hole I assume that must be there if you keep building settlers from small towns, especially if they do not have a granary.
    :eek: Essen is only size 2 :eek:

    :confused:

    I have no clue what this means.

    If we keep the town as it is set now, it will grow with the bin empty before the granary is built.
    This will waste food, and I cannot see any connection with Corruption.

    We need 19 shields and max 5 food so to have the granary completed with a full bin.

    Like:
    1 (this turn) - river plains,wheat,river forest,m river bg (5s,1f)
    2 - unchanged
    3 - unchanged
    4 - change river plains to oasis
    Result: granary, 9/10 food in the bin

    I am affraid we need SS for Glastonbury. Otherwise it is to hard to understand each other.
    "Diofant equations" showed that 280 b remain, we may do 35 bpt.

    how was the content of my post not a ss?

    we started the last turn with 14 food and 41 shields in the bins.

    1 (this turn) - we work river plains,wheat,river forest,m river bg
    +1f+5s
    2 - unchanged
    +1f+5s
    3 - unchanged
    +1f+5s
    4 - change river plains to oasis
    +2f+5s

    Result: granary, 9/10 (or 19/20) food in the bin

    I am thinking how to get Rep at 8, Lux 10% we will have anyway or hire sci in Glastonbury.
    There is no reason to delay growth now.

    without doing the calculations, it would not have come to my mind that letting it grow with an empty food bin could be better. so i have to trust your calculations here, because i won´t have time to check myself. only my feeling is doubtful.

    Save is there.
    I had a look.

    # I still do not understand why Glaston should grow. I hope you do.
    # Workers at Carlion: one crosses the river to the forest, the other goes 1s to road there, right?
    # the northern warrior adds a road, then goes 1ne, road, then i+r the 3rd fp, correct?

    don´t forget to raise lux.

    do we send Mas to the Anarchie this turn? I still did not read their demand for it...

    Yes, do this. If we really want to fool them, we should now be "the best partner they can imagine". The more we show them we really put our best into the alliance, the less likely they'll get suspicious. And I already told d7 last turn per PM that we accidentally passed the save without Mas because the turn-player did not read my note on time. (Which was actually true.)

    alright. this info about the PM i did not have.
    t_x

    Edit: we ARE already the best partner in the world. we are basically gifting them Republic ages before they could come across it!!! (without a deal with us, they would be farthest away from it of all tribes)
    and we depend on them to keep their deal and give us their free MA tech much much later.

    to whoever plays this turn:
    i hope everyone is aware that we must not yet send the save to the next team.
    we need to finish our discussions with the Eagles first, so they know they need to research MM next.

    I don't see that they will give us their MA tech. They will find out our treachery long before the end of the MA. That much should be obvious. :(

    Ok, I was curious and moved our two curraghs, in the obvious way.
    South: SE-S-S
    North: NW-N-N

    Let me calculate things and play. What we decided about Masonary and Eagles? And when?
    I will need 3-4 Gold to finish Rep at 7.

    Wait, first, we did not make Alliance yet, but have a contract.
    Second, we did not make any contract with Eagles.

    I have some trouble on .de site. They ask to change passwod, but I can't see how.
