I found just three hubs in Elgea that have the "send diplo" option without having to do any URL manipulation tricks.  Is there anything to this?  Do we want a public place to post your findings after hitting these hubs with a variety of diplos?

Other thoughts and obscure conspiracy theories welcome.

Jarru [Jannu]
The Jannu did not build their desert stronghold. They are horse people – wanderers, fighters, hunters – not stone and mortar builders. Their ancestors found it, they say, at the beginning of the present Age, sand-blown and echoing with death. It took their Shamen a hundred years to drive out the ghosts. Now it is a focal point for their tribes, like a stone oasis to which they all wander from time to time, to meet and trade and swap rumours.

Nessim [Sultanate of Kazim]
It is customary for desert princes to build pleasure gardens amidst the sands; to make the sands bloom, to create a haven of lush beauty amid the scorching rocks, is a princely achievement. But only one garden has grown so huge, its delights so manifold, that a whole city has grown up simply to support it. It is the will of the supreme Sultan that his garden should be beyond equal in beauty, watered by a thousand fountains, decorated by two thousand slave girls, tended by four thousand eunuchs. None would deny the will of the Sultan.

Khafkar [Sultanate of Kazim]
Khafkar is a slave city. The soldiers who guard the gates are slaves, the officials who administrate the exchequer are slaves, the labourers who clear muck from the roads are slaves. Some are shackled and beaten, some are bedecked in silks and perfumes, but from the lowest to the highest, the Sultan owns every one, and the slaves run the city in his name.

All three of those are in deserts... 

The gypsy fortune-teller tells your Thieves: "Beware what lurks beneath the desert sands, for though there is treasure there it is also well guarded."

I wonder...

It was that message from the fortune teller that prompted me to look around.

I am tossing 5k T1 scouts at each hub.  I've already hit Jannu and have another round on the way again.  I'll post some reports after I collect a few.

Don't Think it's worth it to Sabotage odds are low of actually hitting something.

A faction doesn't need to worry about building anything. they would already be big enough they wouldn't need to build anything.

Assassins on the other side you might actually hit something.

Your saying it's possible to siege a faction? That could be interesting and have potential. Evil Smile

Since the note says well guarded, would it not be ideal to send an army with thieves in it?

Sent an army. Killed the few troops. Got 60 gold. Have now sent an army to occupy - will report what happens!

Siege option not available.
