So it has begun again.  I almost feel sorry for the Zulus.  8) 


Why the reluctance to open borders with Vicky?  Is it just because of how powerful she is?

don't need her settlers making a land grab on my northern border and hemming me in.

plus, if you can get paid for letting someone wander around, why wouldn't you? :)

What?? No comment on that Settler unit in your last frame (SE corner) trying to look small?  I'd be all over that... they'll have nubile wimmin'folk
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

So is their capital Ulundi the Zulus' only remaining city?  Just wondering how much more is needed to knock them out completely.

I was wondering about that as well.

That’s a lot of British firepower right there were it could split my fledgling nation.  And are those settlers truly passing through?  Or is this an ethnic minority that’s going to appeal to the motherland for “protection”?

I see what you did there. :)

So the English are still wandering around your territory, and Germany's grumpy with you.  Did someone make Otto's tea wrong or something?  ::)
