    Let's cut straight to it. Apolyton is requesting gold for upgrading warriors to med infs. in perparation for an attack in seven turns.

    They request 180g immeadiately, and as much as we can afford in 60g intervals in 5 turns.

    Realistically speaking, by the time our current GCA ordeal is over, we'll only really have three units to upgrade - two spears and a sword. This will cost us 60g.

    Therefore, they would want 60g in five turns, considering our current gpt rate the cost of upgrades.

    Now, of course we would get our fair reward. An Apolytonian galley has found a GWT galley S. of Equilibrium, the CDG city formerly known as Shahrazade, or Fortress of the Possums. Assuming all goes well, we'll likely get contact with GWT, CGN and engineering, all for that 240g, not to mention the boost we'll give to Apolyton when they make an assault on GCA.

    In addition to the gold, they ask that:
    1) no techs be traded to GCA for any reason.
    2) we place our own 10-turn moratorium on our tech/map/contact trade discussions with any new civs we meet, solely for the reason of allowing Apolyton to raise more upgrade gold.

    Some other interesting possibilites of the future came up. They would want us as equal allies after GCA is done for. Also, we've now a guarentee that, in the absolute worst case scenario, we'll get an Apolytonian city to be refugees in.

    It sounds good, but I'm smelling some Apolitonian tactics to destroy us under it.

    Well, it is either this or nothing, we really have no other friends that can pull us out. Go for it, just as long as it doesn't disadvantage us.

    Given our situation, this sounds like an excellent opportunity. Sign this thing!

    On a side note, I'm going to be very interested to see the start that GCA got. Their production has been outstanding!

    Have we received a map from them yet? I would be very pleased with this deal if we were to get their map as well.

    It sounds good enough to be signed, because it's our only hope. I'll say we should sign it ASAP.

    [Edit:] You said South of Equilibrium? Are you sure of that? I mean, there's only a inland lake there... [\Edit]

    Sounds, good I must ask though, can they offer anything for us in the mean time (other then helping vs. GCA)?

    The only thing I really don't agree with is:

    Other than this I think it sounds good.

    I think its more good than bad.

    I too can see how apolytan could easily use this for our disadvantage but lets face it: we have SERIOUS problems at home from GCA and if poly attacks GCA in a few turns no matter what long run situation arises its worth it.
