    Hmm. I had 9.8k wine for sale last night for 28g a piece. I wake up this morning and it's gone and I'm definitely richer, but there's no record of anyone showing up and buying the stuff.


    It's kinda funny, I was struggling to get the wine to upgrade my palace before, and now that I have 2 wine cities and another raiding even more wine than I produce, I'm completely drowning in the stuff.

    I'm still wavering between my second wine and my third marble, in the event that I ever actually manage to gather resources for a sixth colony. I am running low on wine as it is, but Karenna's math was quite convincing, and I never have enough marble either. Wine tends to be easier to buy, but I'm not looking forward to gathering enough of it for this upgrade.


    Edit: By the way, IHateTarv on [32:24] is an inactive that is making gold faster than I can take it from him, even pillaging 6x/day over the same island. So if Kalkino, Urahonkey, and Turtle want to help drain him before he goes bye-bye, 13k gold for an hour's work seems alright to me.

    Oh, I have been, believe me.

    But by that reasoning, every colony of every person should be marble, or possibly crystal. And what would happen if we all started thinking like that?


    Edit:
    That warlord, Kahryl, is quite active on the forums.

    Does it or will it matter where your palace is relative to your colonies? Would further-away colonies get more corruption?

    here's my situation: I'm in a part of the world that's hicksville. I can dominate it easily but there's not much wealth in the area. So after subjugating it completely, I plan to move all but two of my cities overseas, and have sort of a "safe empire" and an "expansionist empire".

    I'm going to keep my palace in the "safe empire" place, but will it mean that my distant colonies will suffer more corruption?

    I've gone 3 x Marble, 1 x Crystal, 2 x Wine. Seventh city is actually within striking distance with the amount of resource harvesting I've got going, plus trading.

    I attacked:

    SaudiVillage2 - Macaphrobes 36:18
    SaudiVillage3 - Macaphrobes 36:18

    He is an ok target, gives 36k gold a hit, 300 resources. Oh and I've intercepted about 4k marble and 3k wood. So all in all nice. I can see why he now has asked his ally

    Okay, he was being stupid in mails to me, so I'm blockading Bardy. He hasn't said a word since. :P

    Well, U_N asked us to stop.
    alexyz4 from the alliance Union sends the following message: I believe you are attacking one of our member unprovoked.



    one of my member send me the following letter:"I have a bit of a situation with a member from WPAX that started from a completely pointless argument. I'm not sure what the alliance's policy on a scenario like this is, but he seems to have told lots of people from his alliance to attack me. i don't want to get U_N into a war or anything since none of the others really have anything to do with this and since the root of the problem is really not a big deal at all. I could show you the entire message line between me and the other guy for you to decide if it's a legit reason to take action or not."




    I believe you do not think about consequences what can happen if you start a war with us.If you do not stop your hostile action,we will take measures that you will not survive long in this world.we are a peaceful alliance we don not like wars but if needed we will defend our self.I told my member to retreat.he block you player because he attacked him many times.You have 12h to answer,if you don't contact me I will considered as you answer negative to resolve the problem diplomatic and we will take measures.

    I don't see how the diplomatic leader of the biggest alliance on the server can have such terrible writing.

    Damn, I thought I'd loot a defended town, but the land battle just keeps on going and going, I hope I'll be able to loot it before my blockade goes away.

    Can I get a second opinion on this: my blockade will be there for 40 more minutes and it's currently:
    17 sword/6 phalanx/7 gun/1 cook/1 doctor vs 3 sword/4 phalanx/14sling/2archer+71% wall bonus.

    Next round ends in 14 minutes. Will I be able to sail away safely?

    I am not in WPAX, but I did hit a U_N target yesterday for mass gold.

    He got another member to send 40 catapult ships at me, which I demolished. Now another U_N is sending 20 ships on a >1 day voyage to meet a similar fate. This amuses me.

    They are pussies, in short.

    Just found a level 14 town worth 99k/hit - no shipyard, NO WALL, level 1 barracks, NO units, not even a single slinger, and no hideout.

    I'm just biding my time, waiting on the resources to build up so I can expand to a 4th colony. I'm totally stuck between the idea of colonizing a Sulfer island so I can get all 4 resources myself, or doubling up on Marble and buying Sulfer off the market.

    Oh, and I've realized that I'm like on the other side of the world from y'all. So sorry for no help in defense or such. I've been building my walls and troops as best I can cause of some arse named Badiol. He hit up my Crystal town like 3 or 4 times in one day before I could defend it. He keeps sending spies to die. My spies catch at least 2 a day. If is towns weren't 16s I wouldn't worry so much. Oh, he's also part of that NPAX group.

    The second set of links is more worrisome; a site called board reader is making our threads searchable to the world. Nothing we can do about that, of course.

    METAzreal, thanks for posting.

    You had changed your name in ikariam since the last time you posted here, so I just wanted to be sure it was you.
    And you're actually pretty close to Skarsol and several other members; check out the map in your embassy.

    Good to have you aboard, and let us know if you need help continuing to expand your empire.

    Yeah, the other name I posted is my Gamma account, I was kinda keeping on the downlow with my Beta colonies. Thanks for the offer of help, and the same to everyone else - I usually have a large surplus of wine and a good amount of extra marble, so let me know if you need anything. My army is kinda weak, though, so I'm probably not going to be much help for raiding at the moment.

    The dude Dougg is on my island 25,42. He attacked me out of the blue hoping to get easy resources. Unfortuntely I have a military twice his size and blockaded and pillaged his towns in retailation. And tamorlane got one of his out lying cities.

    That was over like late friday night. I even sent off a message to their diplomat before he initially attacked me and got no response during the whole event.

    I merely asked for kittenz poems for randomly attacking me, and I would stop my blockade etc. I just stopped asking cause the server went to shit and I couldn't send out any more in game mail. The whole transcript is in one of the alliance mails I sent out. And I posted it on the forums a couple pages back.

    Its over and done now. Tell their diplomat dougg should donate a tad more.

    Yea, it can be done. I'm 69 and I don't have a 6th city. I think most of my score is due to research and trade ships. I have spent pretty much all my gold on trade ships. I have 67 ships now, and it costs 842k for 68. I think karenna might have more than me though.
