    Relocate the palace to a more centralized location.

    Wow. Two previous replies are for you opinion. Thankfully the majority believe that we should build MA.

    Using the MGL to relocate our capital is the single move that would most help us accumulate culture. Why? Because if we locate the capital in a corrupt area, the surrounding towns will have improved production capabilities, and can build libraries and temples in a meaningful time period (rather than turn after turn of 1 shield production because of corruption). Moving the capital doesn't have the same effect as it does in PTW, of course, but it still beats having two-thirds of Fanatannia corrupt. The downside is the original core will lose much, but not all, of its production. However, we've pretty well built culture in our original core, so that's less of a concern (we can also wait a turnchat or two to move the capital and shortrush improvements in the original core if necessary).

    Our wars of annexation are over. We'll still fight to raze and pillage the AI, but building additional armies - although desirable - isn't all that important.

    Armies are not needed at this point. All wars for now on should be for pillaging and razing only. Cavs are good enough, they don't need to be in armies to be effective. Instead, we should relocate the palace. I'm still pushing for Husborne Crawley. It would make almost all of our lower sub-continent productive, very useful for this stage of the game.
