I must admit I was kind of disappointed by the first install of the envoy mechanism too. It's a new toy, many seem to like it, and maybe further additions will add more to the game. There are plenty of ideas. With just one envoy I won't really be joining in the fun, so live long and prosper, hope to...

It's unlikely that a player has never had a convoy stumbling on a treasure, and only have sunken ships, but not impossible. Both events are rather rare, so if you don't have that many shipments, the possibility of never having any treasure found is definitely not zero, in fact it can be quite substa...

I have heard that if you click on the right spot on the palace in your capital you can open up an Easter Egg that allows you to send your envoys to boot camp, where they get trained in finding better bricks. :p

Nome: 239 bricks. Since bricks were already worthless, and so was jewelry, I doubt this helps in restoring any balance. Why not ask say 1000 bread per envoy, and return only an occasional item. A bread sink would be useful, so would cedar (when the first big immortality wave has subsided), pottery a...

So far only in Sabah, and you need a level 7 palace at least, so no point in starting an account there if you don't have one. They will be in Theoris shortly, it's another world, but just a short walk :)

Who will want to join TM's forums if they see all of this stuff here?

I gather that you are caught in the pointless fighting over monuments Haester, as an innocent bystander. That is unfortunate, but little can be done about it. You can raise your defenses, or accept the temporary loss and rebuild, or join the club and start marauding yourself. It's not what you like ...

Envoys are a feature that was planned to be implemented in a next update of Nile Online. Part of that implementation is already present in the latest update, but the full feature is not working (yet). Whether it ever will is unclear. In Children of the Nile envoys are part of events that occur at th...

why do you hate tink so much???? That goes back a very long time thechris. Tink (or Mark as he called himself earlier) has a habit of having strong opinions and not being nice to people who disagree with him. Those people then aren't nice back, but probably Tink sees it the other way around; it's g...

The idea of an internet game (this one in any case) is that you don't need to log on from a specific computer, you could have used any computer with internet access to log on and set your cities in vacation mode. Of course that doesn't help you ( :( ), you should have obtained an e-mail telling you ...
