Trades: I have wine and some crystal available for trade. In the next few days, I should have a pretty good marble collection going. Want to make some money? Pillage Stronghold (on my wine island at 73:76) and Hydropolis (on my marble island at 73:77). I generally only send no more than 4 units (2 slingers a sword and a phalnax) to each, but you will lose someone that way. Hydropolis gets me about 22k a shot right now, Stronghold gets me 10k and supplies.
I dont have anyhting especially interesting to add right now, so feel free to post stuff of your own. When we get to a point where we are discussing war stuff, be sure to lock posts as there are other alliances on LJ :P
