Maps: Because of my new schedule. I can no longer maintain the Mapset nor the Color Maps. I will make an effort to post Lords 11 maps as of Turn 45 on the Web as soon as I can.
Warship Cargo Capacity! The Cargo capacity of Warships is 1/2. Not 1!!!
Cultivated Regions: All cultivated regions can be colonized to 2 Gpv. If you can somehow get a region intensely cultivated, you can then colonize it to 3 Gpv.
Diplomacy Results: (ne)=no effect.
Player Letters: Because of all the eMail players, I can no longer effectively send inter-player messages.
Religion Action - Convert Pagan Chief (cpc): You can convert a neutral heathen region to your religion instead of having to resort to all those MW's. If your world religion (Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hindu) can convert a pagan chief, the region will automatically follow.
Church & Mercantile NFP less: I have drastically reduced the amount of NFP a Religious Primate can get from his cathedrals. The same goes for Mercantile Combines.

"The new route is based at Ezi and is aimed at reaching the fabled kingdom of Mu-Se-Nge-Zi of Ga-Mo-Go-Fa, who are reported to be up the mighty Kongo River in a region called Nia-Nia. The Ba-King has told me by means of voices in a mysterious magic box, that he will allow my merchants travel on this river, as I allow merchant travel between Dia Songhai and Bakongo on the mighty Niger River. I will however, need charts and guides of the local Ba-Kongs who understand the treacheries of this mysterious river, so I have put together a gift of 21 queens and concubines of the Ba-King. I belive this suprise gift will warm the heart of the Ba-King so that he will gladly assist my merchants. The Ba-King may expect my further generousity and support if he will help me in such projects."
