It'll be a few days until I get through the research for expansion, then I can start on colonizing and then an embassy. I'm a couple weeks behind you guys and I'm so far away you couldn't help me much anyway (nor me you). Updated: Here's where I'm at now. Town hall lvl 3 Academy lvl 4 Wall lvl 3 Warehouse lvl 2 Trading port lvl 2 Barracks lvl 2 Tavern lvl 1 Have 4 cargo ships, haven't used them yet. Finished Well Digging, Conservation, Pulley, and Wealth, Wine Press - currently on dry-dock I have 30 working in Timber and 45 in Wine production, 22 in Research, 8 slingers in barracks, the rest earning gold.
