I'll give him an expense budget and tell him part of his mission is to select suitable Italian wine for import into Scotland...oh and to burn down Rome...

Tell him that Italian wines are better than whisky. When he finds out he's been lied to, he'll burn down Rome on his own initiative!

Looks like the Dutch Observer to the peace talks is going to get some help to carry the Oil & Matches If we can all send some form of pyromaniac Diplomatic character to Rome then we will really improve our chances of burning it down.

Jason can your ambassador please bring a few spare boxes of matches, oil soaked rags, kindle Oh yes & some of what those Indian tribes in the Americas call FIRE WATER!

What the feck?!

Who's extracting the urine by sending that 'character' to attend the Rome talks! And then another one turns up. Stroll on. Then just when you think Rodrigo won't be heard from again, up he pops and there's riots in Barcelona (saying that mind, it'd be grand to read about the young Prince of Wales, again, and all his mischief).

Rozwi best pull it's finger out and write something exciting for the next newspaper ... the Honour score doesn't go up by itself

Nope, the less we hear about foul Jacobite rebels, trying to overthrow the legitimate governments of England and Scotland, the better, thank you very much!

Any more pro-Jacobite talk from you and I'm cutting off the Rozwi's whisky supply! drunken

Perhaps the Rozwi would like some nice French Brandy instead?

Well if they can't have the decent stuff, I guess they might have to do with brandy...that or brackish water (is there a difference?)

Rozwi will gladly be the middleman for the importation of Scottish whisky or French brandy to Tribal South Africa.

Any help improving Rozwi's Economic Health and income will be much appreciated, so if anyone reading this has something to sell and wants to get in touch in the game...

The picture of the fort under the supplement explaining about the fort ( long since lost on a tablet I never backed up ) is Fort Niagara . I always wondered if that building was it , but if you look at the site and it has a website , you can see it was a lot bigger a place and more like a fort that I was expecting .

Forgot to do this when the turn landed. Not much happened in Africa last turn.


The Rozwi Indaba - The Voice of Africa

March 1702

MAUNG
The district around Maung has been brought under
Rozwi administrative control, with the local
Ovambo chief swearing allegiance and loyalty before
the Changamire. The chief, Iazrus Ovambo, surrendered
his youngest son Kagumbo Ovambo as a hostage. The
son, it is said, is to be sent to Khami as a hostage and
shall be guarded at the royal kraal, but nothing has yet
been done to arrange his safe transfer there.

The Chinese have sent a nice troupe of acrobats to Paris. Perhaps the Rozwi would like to do something similar?

It'd have to be to either Portugal, the UDP, or Scotland though. Rozwi doesn't have diplomatic ties with other countries at this moment in game time - though Portugal's diplomat is still lost in the wilderness, somewhere, and now the position isn't currently played he'll probably never be seen again.

Was looking at the photos of the Zulus dispatched to London in the 1850s, last night, and the photography taken of them to display to those not able to witness first-hand. Obviously this is something that could be played on in Glory.

Rozwi.

Didnt know Portugal dropped. He was a first timer and seemed to be enjoying it. Do you know why he dropped.?

Was it the long time between turns.?

I don't unfortunately.

I'm only aware of the availability of Portugal due to another TGOK player contacting me in a PM, asking for a general summing up of Portugal since turn one (based on what I've read in the papers, and contact with Mozambique) and what the position in SE Africa was like, so he could decide on whether to join Game 10 as Portugal. As it happened he didn't, and currently plays in one of the other games.

As far as I know, since he told me on Facebook in the LGDR group, Portugal's former player played LGDR/TGOK previously and also was playing Swashbuckler. Possibly still is involved in the other games.
