(00:00:15) (Arnelos) ok, thanks
(00:00:52) (Arnelos) I think that Legoland and GoW have been preparing to backstab ND for some time... if ND is actually serious about looking for a seperate peace and getting us to thwart GoW, they may have realized this
(00:01:20) (Arnelos) if ND is REALLY worried about a Legoland-GoW alliance, it may even be possible to move ND toward an alliance with GS
(00:01:33) (Arnelos) which might actually get GS a source of saltpeter in Southern Bob
(00:01:37) (Arnelos) that's my thought, anyways
(00:01:42) (Arnelos) it's a long shot, but I'd love to take it
(00:02:10) (Octavian_X) And I thouight this game couldn't get any more interesting...
(00:02:51) (Arnelos) we already tried negotiating with Legoland, we already tried negotiating with GoW and both gave us the cold shoulder... if ND is willing, I think it's clear who's the rusty third wheel of their alliance afterall
(00:03:22) (Arnelos) but it will depend greatly on whether ND is willing to give something in return for our favor... that will prove just how much they really need it
(00:03:56) (Octavian_X) If we're lucky, I think, we can secure RP a homeland on Bob after all.
(00:04:15) (Arnelos) we'll see
(00:04:34) (Arnelos) I'm not as optimistic on that count until we move ND in that direction
(00:04:39) (Arnelos) I think they might be willing to concede that, but that's not where their negotiating stance is likely to start
(00:05:15) (Arnelos) we've learned in the past that ND does not typically negotiate "fairly"... of course, since RP hasn't typically negotiated "fairly", either... it made for a rather bad relationship before
(00:05:34) (Octavian_X) I think RP has a good chance. Call it 'repirations for previous atrocities against our nation' in return for RP's support.
(00:05:39) (Octavian_X) heh
(00:06:07) (Arnelos) we'll have to see... I think that if ND truly realizes they'r about to get gang-banged by GoW and Legoland, they might need GS and/or RP to do them a favor bad enough that they'll be willing to concede more than they'd want to
(00:06:33) (Arnelos) that's what I'm banking on, anyways
(00:06:48) (Octavian_X) Only time will tell, I guess.
(00:06:54) (Arnelos) go ahead and post all of this to the GS forum, too... they should hear our discussion on this
(00:07:22) (Arnelos) I'd love to discuss this with the rest of GS... we really should have a team chat
(00:07:23) (Arnelos) Togas gets back tomorrow night
(00:07:23) (Arnelos) perhaps tomorrow or Monday?
(00:07:32) (Arnelos) I'm probably leaving town by Thursday, so definately before then
(00:07:40) (Arnelos) ok, I need to take off
(00:07:45) (Octavian_X) ok.
(00:07:54) (Octavian_X) Hope we can arrange a chat soon...
(00:07:58) (Octavian_X) g'night
