    Finally heading towards my 4th Colony. Marble. I'll have 2 marble now and one Wine/Crystal. Sulfur can come later.

    I think I'm gonna upgrade my palaces/govorners offices BEFORE planting the new colony. Good idea?

    The impact of corruption is not high enough to offset the growth and additional resources you'll gain from getting the colony in and expanding.

    What DOES corruption impact? Growth?

    It increases unhappiness and also decreases the effectiveness of resource gathering and general income.

    I'm going on a month long bike trip, so if it helps for me to be dropped from the alliance, I'm cool with that (just let me back in when June rolls around? Maybe?).

    Also if anyone wants some 1:1 trades I have 10k+ wood, a few k marble and wine and can scrape together about 1k sulfur by tomorrow. Since I'll be gone for a while I'd rather help people get the materials they need immediately instead of keeping it for upgrades that'll be way down the road for me.

    EDIT: To be honest, I don't even require 1:1 trades, so you can shortchange me as much as you like long as it doesn't mess with the pushing rules, so let me know.

    Steel Angel mentioned something about the gamma server; I'd like to toss out the reminder that PAers are playing on each of the ikariam.com servers.

    Alpha: Darian and Hellbunny in IST
    Beta: Everyone in NPAX and WPAX
    Gamma: Charlemagne (cmdprmpt), taliesinamicus (Darian), OverlordCuddles (Hellbunny) in PARC
    Delta: Darian et al. in PAX; about 17 of us so far; TheCapn is also on the server in another alliance
    Epsilon: Tamorlane, Hellbunny et al. in PAX

    @Al: Fill away. I don't want to see anyone not us take slots that open up.

    A moment of silence for Bruised, who has disappeared from the server.
    Also, I fully expect Akira to be deleted on the 17th, unless he returns before then. That would open up a slot on NPAX marble, 24:22. So if you're looking to expand soon, might want to time it to grab that slot.

    I'm playing in the Gamma server as well, sn is Metapurna:
    Vuifiios[20:38] > New Crobuzon
    Sireos[21:37] > Viae Ferae
    Stekaios[21:38] > Lands End

    Anyone on Gamma that needs anything should hit me up (low on marble right now, though).

    Just make sure you go on vacation mode, rather than just sit idle.

    Good lukc on your bike trip, enjoy yourself.

    My next colony is going on 50:50, I think an alliance leader has an obligation to try and be as accessible to the alliance as possible.

    Either that or somewhere in WPAX, but I dunno whether absorbing 20+ guys is super feasible.
    As someone located fairly centrally, let me assure you that it makes you equally inaccessible to everyone.

    Whereabouts are you located? My capital is at 54:57, with colonies scattered around to the east, west, and south of there.

    I was thinking of starting a one-man war against a small alliance once my wine colony is up and running, but if there is another PAX member around that would be even better.

    I want to attack BULLDAWGS, a 5 member alliance with an average score of about 3400, just because of their alliance description:
    We will bite your head off and rip your nuts off
    I mean, obviously they want a fight, so why not give it to them?

    Oh dear, I seem to have incurred some wrath. A guy from TBO (ranked 4) is sending a blockade and troops at me. They're gonna arrive out of order, but still. Not real sure what I did to get their attention.

    Now, I have to decide if I wanna bounce his troops or destroy them. :(

    About Gov Mansions, remember, corruption right now is only like a tenth of what they might set it to later. Going past level 2, maaaaybe level 3 on those is just a huge waste right now.

    I like the challenge. Granted, by the time they actually do implement corruption full-blown, you people will be able to gather the resources in two days while it will take me two weeks right now, but I'll still have the moral highground.

    Well, the stubborn highground, at least.

    well the main benefit for me is that every spy negates a wall level when you attack.

    Every spy has a chance to open a breach when you attack. I had six spies in a city that resulted in three breachers.

    Multiple spies can be useful, but I should have the option of sending only one if I wish.

The dogs know that if they they wait they might get two steaks, but they don't care, they are dogs and did you ever meet a dog that would trade a dinner today for two dinners tomorrow?

    My marble colony, Argoth, is at 53:54. It is also something of a stronghold that is preparing to weather the hilarity of a 60-plus ramship assault (if dude who built them ever gets off his ass and stops sending single units to attack me for reasons I cannot begin to fathom). I have a developing colony named Keld at 54:48, and my capital of Phyrex is at 63:55.

    I'll send out some spies tonight to try to get some locations. I've seen a few of their towns around while looking for pillage targets.

    My username in game is Ponchs Pilot, and locs are listed in the embassy.

    Where's the guy attacking you? Maybe we can do a coordinated wanging. I've missed out on all the action since the middle is so far from the rest of PAX.

    No... I have one marble colony, and I'm trying to slow building so I can upgrade the Governor's Mansion there and the Palace next (so I can get a 2nd marble colony). It just takes a lot of freakin' marble, and market prices for marble are usually 50+.
