This was posted by Kody on the HDE forum today.The chairman is trying to figure out if we want to treaty with the university. We don't really want to treaty as we're thinking of breaking the treaty in maybe a decade or two. However, the other side of the argument is people want to take the university by surprise.
Their scout is currently no threat to us as we can eliminate it this turn. However if we do decide to declare war we want to kill off the scout before it finds a rocky square and makes itself difficult to kill.
The poll on the issue hasn't been posted yet so I hope my teammates figure out what they want to do.
With this amount of delay deliberating a treaty I think the university realises we're not that friendly at all towards them.
As was this.As they are going to be a target (believed 'b' faction) we are uncertain what diplomatic stance to take. Definitely not pact, we're wondering if we should go treaty with them knowing we're only going to break it shortly.
