    "Most esteemed citizens, I apologize for the delay in announcements. Unfortunately, most of what we've found has been... a whole lot of nothing."

    "Seriously, there's our patch of green, then lots of desert, and then the purple dudes and their green. So, it's been pretty boring just exploring here."



    "So... yeah. Nothing much has happened. We've traded with them, are looking to scout and maybe expand to the north, but... all in all, things feel not too bad."

    "Lower cities are small, but... they pull some weight. Need to learn how to increase our production, though."



    "Upper cities could do with being a bit bigger, but... we're working on getting there. Developing. Eventually."



    "Our scientists, however, are the best in the known world! We have immense scientific prowess!"



    So... yeah. Not much has happened. Mostly boring turns, building stuff up. I heavily need to build up Production, but I've not found Industrialization yet. Also need to build up a military, which I'll be doing once this current batch of stuff is finished. Good units are zero good if you aren't having them deployed.

    I'm genuinely happy for once at the amount of Science I'm able to do, though. I know I got ridiculously lucky, though, with having 2 Science city-states right there.

    I'm gonna fall behind, though, if I don't deal with things quick. Because I'm pretty limited right now. Especially since my tech advantage'll fall away if I don't have hills.

    Perhaps next time we should enforce peace between players for, say, the first 50 turns. Stopping the rush of a civ with an ancient Unique Unit can be exceedingly challenging to borderline impossible. We can always add more AIs to still allow early warmongering.

    Barbs are really getting uppity... I have two settlers en route to that peninsula and have to fight tooth and nail for every inch.

    At least Cloaca Maxima will make for a splendid Petra, though Mathematics of course was the very last classical tech I uncovered. Shuffle sure is inconvenient.

    My original plan was to take Korea with Legions but she has a big enough tech lead she might have crossbows in time. Probably would have been better to have already done it instead of hunting for Mathematics.

    Ah, it is a relief to hear such a thing. I do not expect us to escape unscathed... but perhaps we can avoid utter annihilation.

    Our mapmakers have given this land the peculiar place of Kernorland. I think it's meant to be a joke, because it's awfully hard to read with the wrong kerning. Our capital lies roughly twelve standard MegaUnits south of the city-state of Brussels, which is (if you've not discovered it), just south of your Research Outpost 1.

    May the solar winds be at your back. We will try and hang on, however improbably it may be.

    A letter to President Dent of the United Galactic Government

    Dear President Dent,

    How does the war front look on your end? The NSB has had issues navigating the waters and has been delayed. However, four squads of our elite Pitali Archers and a galley are nearing your borders. What forces do the invading Romans display?

    We unfortunately have been forced to split our troops into three armies due to the vile betrayal of both the dark lady of the Scyth Tomryis and the cruel Lady Six Sky. Once we secure our borders, the remainder of our army shall deploy south as quickly as possible.

    Surely by now you have become aware of the world war threatening the peace, freedom, justice, and security that my Queen Apailana Amanitoré has won for her new empire. Caesar Trajen's war against my lady's friend, President Dent, has drawn our ire. However, even as we began our march in defense of our beleaguered friend, we were betrayed. It appears Roman gold now graces the treasury of two of our neighbors as they deploy their forces against the Nubian Security Bureau.

    "M'lady, the officers have arrived with reports of the three front war we have been sucked into. We believe that we can quickly win the eastern war. The is fortunate, as it is the closest to home. The matter of the Scyth may take longer, though we have our two best Pitali squads assigned to that front. Preslav has also entered the fight and has passed its soldiers into our command. With any luck, we should be able to take down her hoards of horsemen without too much issue."

    As for this war, I wasn't expecting TheFallenOne to bribe both Scythia and Maya into attacking me, but at least it will spare me some warmongering penalties when I slaughter them all as I was planning on anyways. Tomyris might give me some issues with how much she spams light cavalry, but I should be able to best a Prince AI without too many issues.

    Illustrious Bibble,

    As of currently, they are attacking on two fronts. Having taken the University of Maximegalon, they are coming for my capital with five Legions and a siege tower.

    Over isolated on the eastern side of the continent, they've sent two Legions to my city there, but my Two Swordsmen are hopefully able to hold them off in conjunction with the city. I fear it is merely a delaying option. Do not land north of there, though, as there are many Barbarians and rough terrain.

    The forces of Taruga, Hattusa, and Bandar Brunai have helped, but I unfortunately have not had the coin to directly levy them, and my grasp on the allegiances of the cities is tenuous at best. But they have bought a modicum of time. And that time is all we can hope for.

    Appreciative of it all,

    -R. Dent

    So... I've not been updating much, part because it's... a little disheartening, because I'm stupid and should have seen this coming, partially because I'm sure you're getting far better updates from my adversary.

    It's... not looking good. I completely slacked on my military in my quest to actually get a decent science score this game. So... yeah. I am entirely outmatched. My production definitely can't keep up with this. The only reason I've not lost yet is because of Hattusa's ability that gives me strategic resources I don't have, so I could upgrade to some swordsmen to buy time.


    I might be able to hold them off for a bit on my eastern flank, but... probably not. They're better than I am, have the same numbers, and just need to pull back to heal. I have no production over there. Even a warrior is too little, too late.


    Hoping I can hold off until Ray gets here, but... it's not likely.


    I'd like to say that I gave a good showing this time, but... to be frank, I blew it once again. Should have learned from prior games, that other players are not your friends...

    Those who hunger for war will always find an enemy in the people of Indonesia. While we are not opposed to uniting our people with friendship, it is unlikely that we can extend military force to the parts of the world where this war is taking place in any reasonable timeframe, and we have no wish to waste time and resources on a doomed errand. For the near future, we are willing to offer friendship to you.

    The first city has fallen. Korea had very little defense but did very well in the envoy game and I had to cut my way through the troops of three city states. Four archers, a swordsman and a chariot down and Bandar Brunei became neutral again thanks to Tomyris so I should now be mostly done with the city state interference.

    Haven't lost a unit yet. Dataninja could take out that wounded legion but doing so would expose the offending unit and very likely allow me to kill it.

    She thankfully neglected to clear the rainforest around her capital so my besieging units will enjoy a nice +6 tile defense. And afterwards I can use the Legions' chop. The builders I sent in the wake of my military are already in the process of improving the terrain.



    Here she should have gone for walls instead of a second swordsman. One had to come out of the safety of the city and is now easy fodder for my superior units. Once the third Legion gets involved I should capture this one too.

    The combination of Baths and Audience Chamber allows me to build some impressive cities well ahead of their time. That's the advantage I have to leverage if I want to overcome Ray's current sizable lead. Though it will force me to spread my governor promotions.



    How I long for Petra... If he didn't beat me to it this here could be a matchwinner. Even invested my pantheon into Lady of the Reeds and Marshes. Oh well, thanks to Reina I still make good bank from this city. Just used Land Surveyors to buy all resources 3 squares away from my cities, next I will save up to buy the first medieval Great General. That could give me the edge to win the war.



    I love how Baths give me far more freedom in city placement, with the halved production cost I can in good conscience put a city in a tile without water and still get it running pretty fast. I finally cleared out the last barbarians in my corner, but it's a bit of a walk until that Legion can join the fight.

    A message to all nations of the civilized world from Her Imperial Majesty, Queen Apailana Amanitoré of Nubia, Defender of Peacemaker's Rest, President of the University of Illinois, and Conqueror of the Scyth.

    "People of the world, know that President Dent of the United Galactic Government and I have sworn a formal alliance against the tyranny of Rome. My people have emerged from the sands of time to shepherd the lost and guide them into a golden future. We march in unity with the U.G.G. to defend their lands. But know this, Roman agents poisoned the minds of Tomyris, Lady Six Sky, and Wilhelmina. As our Nubian Security Bureau marched to protect our friend, all of our neighbors were bribed to attack us! These acts of war cannot be ignored. Tomyris has been captured and executed, while Lady Six Sky has fled her palace and will soon be apprehended from her pitiful hideout. Soon Wilhelmina will learn the error of her ways and face Nubian justice.

    "We call upon Rome to cease this aggression and return all cities taken from the United Galactic Government. If you do not, then the Nubian Security Bureau will be dispatched to arrest you. Your army may be Legion, but our arrows, bolts, and guns shall turn you aside."

    Now that Tomyris has been disposed of, we can deliver 3 more squads of crossbowmen, a siege gun, a knight, and a highly trained close quarters specialist to your front. If Rome does not back off from their aggression, we will also begin training a second army to open a new front. You wouldn't happen to know where Trajan's capital lies in relation to the Dutch, would you?

    The sublime Nastius Dingus lets it be known,

    Yesterday my esteemed father Biggus Dingus died in a most unfortunate manure explosion that I assure you is wholly unrelated to the recent invention of gunpowder and the fact his old ass refused to yield the throne for fourthousand years and counting. The age of muskets cannons and... fireworks launchers I guess? is upon us and I look with concern at the havoc they may wreak. Our front line has been stable for a long time so I propose we formalize the current state and bring the fighting to a halt. You may - rightly or falsely - believe your capital's defenses to hold even against my formidable number of musketmen, but there is nothing you could do to stop my conquest of Hattusa to deny you its benefits should hostilities continue.

    "Indeed. The attacks have been scurrilous, and without any warning. Accusations were leveled after war declarations, and no attempts at reconciliation were made. Retribution was disproportionate to the purported slight."

    "But it is not just us who have been targeted. The free city of Bandar Brunei has been taken, simply for defending us against these unprovoked attacks. Be warned, friends. It is clear that Rome has designs on us all."

    "We never wanted war. But we will not bow to intimidation. So long as our cities remain under foreign hands, we will not yield."

    Rome is offering peace, but they refuse to return my cities. It would solely be as-is. This is unacceptable. I do have eyes on Amsterdam. It is essentially at the same latitude as one of my captured cities, and you will have to pass by it anyways - the only known safe sea route is slightly north of the waters to the west of Amsterdam. Continuing west will get you to the Guide Offices.

    I am afraid that that is something that I cannot allow, unless you are to return the cities of my people.

    As has been stated, they were taken in a disproportionate attack. But, perchance a new ruler will herald a new outlook. We await your reply.

    We see no reason to yield that which we are in no danger of losing. Even if your defense holds, you are far from able to mount a viable counter-offensive. Any such attempt would require a significant investment of resources that would see far better pay off when instead spent on settling the empty land to your north. Our main benefit of peace would be to finally allow your former city of Guide Offices to grow. Surrendering the city would remove any reason for us to stop the fight.

    However, as an added incentive and gesture of good will, we are prepared to offer you a resource of incense in exchange of a symbolic token of a single gold per turn.

    A message to all nations of the civilized world from Her Imperial Majesty, Queen Apailana Amanitoré of Nubia, Defender of Peacemaker's Rest, President of the University of Illinois, Conqueror of the Scyth, and Diplomat Supreme.

    We are not sure what the Romans mean by this "warmonger penalty," but we wished to announce to the world that the war between the Dutch and the Nubians has ended in Wilhelmina's complete and unconditional surrender. All Dutch cities other than Amsterdam have been transferred over to the NSB. She would do well to remember the might of our security bureau, else an "accident" happen.

    "My Queen, perhaps we ought to continue to rely upon negotiations? This coup was impressive."

    "No Governor, this was born out of opportunity. Wilhelmina WILL face Nubian justice the next time she rebels. I merely saw a chance to absorb her holdings without bloodshed."

    "And what of the Ethiopians' relic? How did you come to possess that?

    "Their Emperor sought Nubian coffee. Apparently his Ethiopian coffee was not the correct roast for his taste, so he asked of our supply. If coffee is so precious to him that he would offer a priceless relic for our treasury, who am I to deny him?"

    -------------

    So, I think the AI is broken. Wilhelmina offers me all her cities and resources when I've only taken a settler and then Menelik II gives me his relic in exchange for Coffee, a resource he already has. At least this opens up a safe route for my next wave of troops.

    This one fell very soon after the last update, killing both defending swordsmen without losses on my side, but it's a rather subpar city. At least I get a new luxury out of it.

    I have a good kill to loss ratio, even without counting all the city state units I had to cut through to get at Korea. Those suckers were relentless. In all I have lost four Legions and two Crossbowmen. However, the city states delayed me long enough for Korea to get multiple Crossbows up and I aborted my assault on the capital.



    That city flipped to neutral twice from loyalty pressure and I could only maintain control by also taking Bandar Brunei, now Nasus Magnus.
    I just used the build charges of my Legions to chop a wood and a swamp, with another wood to follow, to speed up the development of the city. Gonna place another farm triangle up north.



    Buying a Great General with cold hard cash was worth every penny. RayGallade started supporting Korea but placed his units way too aggressively. I killed four of his crossbows in the previous two turns without losing a unit of my own. Got the +3 era score from killing a veteran unit so that's nice, didn't even know that's a thing. One of them must have had 3 promotions so that was probably one of the most elite units he had.

    With the general bonus and extra movement from him plus Logistics I also cleared out the first of Korea's Hwachas. I'm currently building some catapults to combine them into two corps then upgrade to bombards, that might be enough to finally breach Korea's walls. Always unconvenient to fight in the era of the enemy's unique unit and Hwachas are excellent on defense.

    Thanks for the updates all. I at least do read everything even if I don't comment.

    So are going for a domination victory or are you going to pivot at some stage?

    His lead is insurmountable unless I take some of his cities, but after we equalize I think science may be my best bet. My cities can grow bigger than his and I know from the other game he is somewhat neglectful in improving tiles even late into the game, so when it comes to building the projects I should be able to outproduce him.

    Don't think I'll be able to pull it off, though if I win the race to Forbidden City I'll feel more confident. Next I'm gonna corps up my elite units and bank up for the first industrial era Great General so I'll have a seamless transition in era coverage from my medieval one.
