    In my current game I was offered the Greed Quest. I was charged with acquiring some of Boudicea's Horses which lay just across my northern border. There was a small inlet of water that needed to be crossed. This was all fine. I had plenty of galleys off my coast and I was preparing for a northern strike either against Ragnar or Boudicea neither were being very nice neighbors. So all I needed to do was get some troops to the galleys and shuttle across the bay. I was just going to send a spy into her territory to make sure I wasn't going to send my troops into a slaughter. So 300 turns seemed a very generous time frame.

    Six darn turns after I got the quest Persia completed the quest after apparently grabbing something in France from Napoleon. :cry: Six freaking turns!! :sad:

    Its a dog eat dog world, I guess.

    I had a greed quest that was unfair in the other direction. I was charged with stealing some horses that were right on the border next to one of my three culture cities when I was going for a culture victory. Several turns later the square flipped to my culture and I completed the quest - without having to do anything ;)

    What's the reward for a greed quest? I usually ignore them as they are almost always either in the land of my ally or stupidly deep in an enemy's territory on the other side of the map.

    A number of free whatever unit comes with the resource.

    Need it to turn up as a Uranium mine quest! :D

    I had a similar quest for copper once. Izzy was the target and the resource smack bang in the middle of her hunting grounds. The problem - I was busily copping the business end of a ton of her axemen and summarily losing a lot of ground. Wee bit of an irony and more of a "This is GOD and I'm going to punish you mightily for that epithet you just yelled out!" :D He tends to hate me - probably because I make fun of his beard... a LOT. :p
