My quick email reply to fed ...

 

Yes - got your first one and responding officially today. The corn-clams doesn't work, but the gems deal does. Rhoth will be offering it in game.

 

Followed by his reply ...

 

Greetings!

No, pals, you made a mistake: we do not want silk;

we want silver or incense.

Can it be done?

Cheers,

Hey guys, just a quick message via other channels (i.e. PM). I saw that you guys finished up machinery this past turn. I can't send feudalism though as you don't have monarchy. So I sent a monarchy for gold deal in-game. We can consider it a wash even though the gold doesn't equal the value of the tech. If you guys are interested in accepting that then go ahead and send the machinery for feudalism deal.

 

Beta will be getting back to you through official channels about the gems deal you offered. We also need to discuss next round of techs.

Greetings Southern Cross,

 

The feudalism and machinery trade has gone through and we will be finished civil service soon. After that, we propose that we do engineering given our current research rate.

 

As to resource trades, the corn for clams trade doesn't work for us. We only have one clam resource and already have corn. As to the gems trade, silver is out. We only have one incense, but could trade that for the gems. It's a wash for us but if it helps you out we can do the trade.

 

We see that you are no longer at war with the Portuguese. We trust all went well, and you achieved your objectives.

 

So you are aware, we are beginning the invasion of the Viking lands next turn. If you are able to move a force (of any size, really) towards their city of Uppsala, that may provide a good diversion causing them to spread out their forces. If not, no worries.

 

Looking to hear from you.

 

Cheers, Beta of Apocalypto

Greetings friends.

 

Rhothaerill agreed via in-game chat to trade Engineering for Guilds. This email is to officially confirm that we agree to that tech deal. Can you give us a rough estimate of how many turns it will take you to research Guilds?

 

Good luck on the next round with the Portuguese. I have taken a recent game save - 1060AD before the Vikings play. I will take them frequently over the next couple of turns.

 

Regards! Beta of Apocalypto

Replacement Message sent to fed and SC.

 

Hi guys, Please ignore my earlier message. I am a poor public servant working in foreign affairs, and now the high-powers want my head. :eek: I will be lucky if I get away with a stay in the dungeon. :(

 

The trade proposal was supposed to include both philo AND paper. Here's the new offical message:

 

"Southern Cross.

and the reply to buy some time:

Greetings fed!

 

Sorry about our team not getting back to you sooner. Your offer is under discussion, but Beta, who was at the family cottage last week, has to go back out today to meet the septic tank pumping guy. He should be back early in the week and he can get back to you then.

A much belated reply from raf, but a nice gesture nonetheless.

 

Team Apocalypto,

To my embarassment, I only checked this email today after a nostalgic survey of the DG's progress. I understand your position, and wish it could have gone down some other way. Though I harbor no bitterness, I do not intend to rejoin the game. Even before the fall I informed the team of your open arms. I can only assume that they also decided that a break would be beneficial. Best of luck to you in your endeavors for victory.

To the Honourable and Mighty Civilization of Southern Cross

 

It is inevitable that it should come to this: the two greatest civilizations facing off with each other - over a border that has only known friendship and co-operation. But only one civilization can rule in this world, and the Supreme Overlord Charr long ago dictated that it would be the people of Apocalypto, those who follow his true path.

 

Apocalypto officially declares war on Southern Cross.

 

May your deaths be honourable and make you worthy of Charr's blessing in the afterlife.

Folks, I started a WAR! thread in the public forum so we can share the fun. And maybe trash talk a wee bit. :) Trust that is OK.

 

Good luck! But not with the rng! :)
