    Okay. This one is just informal. We have met the Indians and got Alphabet from them. Now, the debate will begin weteher to go to the GL or Monarchy.

    Please vote Mysticisim, Writing or Abstain.

    Note- this is going to be up until Tuesday night. If by some chance it reaches Quorm, i may make it official (j/k)

    I believe Strider has already said that Mysticism would be next.

    Wrong... Half of the people want a path to monarcy the other half a path to the alphabet... The poll was a tie so we went for alpha in the T/C. Later we traded that The wheel for alpha so I believe we should go for mysticism then writing then lit then polytheism then monarcy.

    Exactly, Strider. I was referring to the post where SAaM asked you if you would chose writing as the next tech if we were to trade for alphbet. That's when you said "No, we will go for Mysticism". Which I think is a good move.

    Nevr trade Monarchy until you have completed the Hanging Gardens, IMHO. But after it's completed, there still might be trade opportunities.

    Writing.

    I'm still in favor of getting literacy. Libraries will be our main culture building. Also, we should begin a pre-build for either GL or oracle ASAP.

    :D Your attempts at doing a pre-build in this depotism will be comic. Just as every time the penguin lists the path of monarchy as not having the Hanging Gardens or improved production is comic. Even libraries or the cities to put them in will be scarce, unless we start the whipping, which is futile in itself. You people need the benefits of an improved society to appreciate a higher science level. But I can see how you might want to just sit back and wait on the Great Library.

    We should follow the path of Monarchy which allow us to impose our will upon our neighbors, while maintaining happiness at home, and later capture the GL for ourselves.

    Our enemies have started with more forces than we. The path to dominance involves superior production and government.

    ah, cp, glad to see you back. Anyways, strider is out, leaving me incharge. my polling has discovered that 13 people prefer writing and 12 people prefer mysticism (including cp). So, as acting head, i am giving the goahead to writing. unfortunalty, im going to most likely miss the tc and our chat rep is MIA. So, unless theres a spot vote to override this, writing it is.
