    Since I haven't seen any discussion about these items, I figured we may be able to get some voting done on it to get an idea of what to do.

    A) Indian Diplomat

    What shall we do with him?

    Continue moving our stacks of troops to block his movement?
    Spread out our troops to form a line to block him?
    Expel him?
    Bribe him?
    Let him go to the city?
    Other ideas?

    B) Island SW of Elysium

    What to do with it? We know there is an Indian Elephant on it already. The Indians have also had quite a bit of naval activity near Elysium. What should we do?

    Drop off diplomat that is on the ship and wait for a settler to build a city?
    Drop off diplomat and bribe elephant?
    Keep ship patrolling off Elysium for Indian ships?
    Other ideas?

    The Indian Dips are a pain, also perhaps their Vans, and I'm not sure what would be best. I personally try to prevent theft of technology, cities, units and the like. We could block, keeping safe stacks of 2 in India. Reinforce with the released Civ Musket, to garrison our Indian Watcher City. Perhaps ship another Dip -- we're building 5 of them.
    Regarding the Isle, land our Dip and bribe their Elephant. It will home to Elysium, a minor annoyance. Avoid being expelled.

    I'll vote tomorrow. The other option is for Jayne to move when she's seen these posts.

    I'm also leaning towards keeping the stacks to block his movement (as that was what I was doing before) and also bribing the elephant.

    My concern right now is: What else do the Indians have out there? When I traded maps with them, they had 3 ships. Now we now they have at least 4. So, where is the fouth and what it is carrying?

    Maybe we should trade maps with them again? They are still Enthusiastic....

    Sure, we've already done it so what news about us will they get? A trifle, I imagine. And it's free to trade maps, iirc. But before giving them anything to induce them to trade maps, we should all be clear on that before we give them anything.

    If the Indians will trade maps, anyone we've already traded with, let's do it.

    I didn't have to give anything to the Persians or the Indians when I traded maps with them last time. Hopefully it will be the same this time.

    What are the chances that if we block the dip he will bribe US?

    I also like to bribe "old" units when I've got Leo's. They are cheap and upgrade quickly. Lets bribe all the elephants etc that we can :thumbsup:

    As long as we are peace with them, I don't think they will bribe us, but it's also not an option I"m not too thrilled about finding out for sure. With his Dip pushing on the city like that, I would guess they are trying to steal techs. We could leave a dip or two in the city and see if that is enough to twart his attempts at doing so....?
