Since our citizens are thrilled with our empire thus far, we decided to expand and gain some more resources. Thanks to the friendliness of our neighboring city-states, we feel comfortable enough to settle between them, though it will be a bit of a tight fit. Welcome the city of Vijayanagara!

Meanwhile, we discovered Spain to the Northeast, which leaves just one civ undiscovered. We also have another tract of land to the immediate east across the strait, though we will wait to see if England claims it by the time we're ready to settle it, as we don't want to upset them.

Got in a short session today, we managed to claim the open land to our west across the strait, next to Ur, so we should be able to get a couple more luxuries with that land! Pataliputra is our 4th city now, I don't yet know if we will expand any more.

After a long voyage, one of our ships has discovered the last civ: Byzantium! They are on the northeastern most part of the map.

Our economy is starting to bustle, our trade routes are able to reach several other civs and are providing us with much gold, and the arts are flourishing as well! We are even in the process of constructing the Sistine Chapel.

Meanwhile, there may be some unrest brewing on the eastern continent, Siam approached us about a war with England but we declined, but then Byzantium told us that England is plotting against us. I can sort of understand as they may be jealous of our city we just settled on their continent, but it was open for a long time, I feel they had plenty of time to settle it if they wished. Nevertheless, we are monitoring their activity for now.

We have befriended Songhai, the Iroquois, and Byzantium in short order, hopefully this peace lasts! Though we are a bit irritated that a few turns before completing the Sistine Chapel, Byzantium finished it, but alas. At least the arts are flourishing throughout the world. Our economy is flourishing as well, we got a Great Merchant, and the funding combined with our previous wealth has allowed us to sign four research agreements in quick succession.

Meanwhile, England became host of the World Congress, so it's good that we're friends with them!

-10 turns later-

Sadly, it did not. Siam desires England's land, so they declared war. Shameful really, I had hoped we would be above petty land-grabbing, but it appears I will have to keep an eye on them. They've even settled near our borders.

-a bit later-
England's outpost city of Newcastle has fallen to Siam, but it was well away from the main English empire, so hopefully they will be able to withstand Siam's assault when it counts. Even worse, the new vote for the host of the WC went to Siam as they are friends with many city-states. I find them loathesome, but we will have to bear it for now.

Meanwhile, this is getting tiresome, as Byzantium has now blocked us from building the Uffizi while we were building it. Even I have limits to my patience.
