    Welcome to the c*****y world of TO. I detest the TO in TSO more than I have seen in any other game. People here are the most greedy and selfish players I have ever seen. (There are some exceptions, but they are few and far between). I swear to all that is good that some of these greedy players are trying to send their offspring (yes, I do not believe they are human and refuse to call them children) to college on TO gouging. You know the interesting thing here is that I do have an account on German-9 and those players are much more like gamers in a strategy game like this... they want to not only be successful in trade, but aide their fellow players. Guessing it has to do more with being part of the North American Servers than anything else... anyway... if you need help, send FR, I help what I can (open to all players on Zeus). GL in event.

    I also agree that the rewards for this event are very generous. I love the wondrous residences. The new bookbinder looks great. And this Gemini gen could be a real boost to the lineup. His bio calls him the older brother-- who is the other twin?

    Last I checked, all trades are voluntary. Someone made a good point about this event being a little different than the others because there is a group goal. It's pretty obnoxious to see trades posted that are worse than you can get in the provision house conversion. But I don't buy them. Nobody has to.

    Don't forget there are different styles of play. Some players make there coins through extensive production chains. Some players make a lot of coins by selling loot spots. Other players make coins by buying low and selling high. The thing about prices is things are worth exactly what people will value them for. I was trying to buy storage towers. One player asked for 2 improved silos, 2 magnificent residences, and a gingerbread storehouse for one storage tower. It wasn't worth that much to me, but it was to him. I didn't buy it.

    Game resources also have more or less value depending what type of player you are or where you are at in the game. Some players love decorations, and will pay thousands of coins for a tree. I don't care if my island looks like a slum. Magnificent residences are of particular value to lower level players who can't earn a lot of beans, have lower pop, and lots of extra space for buildings. A lot of high level players pay a premium for higher pop density. A couple years ago players were offering 5 or 6 mag res for 1 gingerbread house.

    Anyway. Just pretend I swallowed several balloons full of helium before jabbering all that

    As far as I can understand the badly-translated text, his name should be "Older Twin" and he's the twin brother of the field medic, and General Log is their father.

    Ok so does anyone know if the Gemini General's 20% restore troops ability stacks with First Aid. or would booking First Aid be a total waste?

    Like the First Aid general it stacks as far as I can tell - and EJ has it skilled that way so I assume it works. (3/3 first aid = 9% more, probably additive not multiplicative).

    Thanks for the offer but not on your server. A lot of Europeans play on the NA servers so I am not sure that is a factor but this is a sample of the trade office even today when a lot of the demand has disappeared. Most of this being offered was from free loot spots as well. I have no idea what BB thought it was doing providing so much excess dough to the lower levels. Guess there is no need for a challenge for lower levels to get up to 50 now, some people pretty well managed 1 to 50 just because of this event in the last two weeks.
