As I see it, there are only two problems with the plan:
1. Time. Will it take too long to come to fruition?
2. Money. We have enough, but is this the action that we want to spend it on?
We need to ask ourselves these two questions before voting.
Also, Sir Ralph, do you see any possible way to incorporate OPD's idea into a war with France? Or do you think that we will have to stick with archers and spearmen?
edit: Spiffor, as minister of the economy, do you feel this is a smart expenditure of money?
