Proposal: Foreign Commerce

Reached quorum 7 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 23 May 2022 16:08:52 UTC

If the proposal “Trade Routes” was enacted, add a subrule to Trade Routes called “Foreign Commerce”:

Each of the foreign powers imports one resource and exports another.
- Mycenae imports Money and exports Piety
- Sardinia imports Money and exports Livestock
- Crete imports Piety and exports Money
- Troy imports Piety and exports Livestock
- Alexandria imports Livestock and exports Money
- Heliopolis imports Livestock and exports Piety

When a Guardian owns a building in a region with an Embassy or is the Baron of a region with an Embassy, they may, as a daily action, select one such Embassy and use it to Conduct Foreign Commerce:
- Spend some amount of the resource that the Embassy’s foreign power imports.
- Gain an amount of the the resource that the Embassy’s foreign power exports equal to one third of the amount that you spent (rounded down).

Per Trading Hours, I think we should avoid introducing a secondary game clock of daily actions: a player shouldn’t get a speed advantage over others if they can be online at both 6pm and 12am UTC (which may become critical if a player needs to acquire certain resources to win, but had to trade with two different powers in two different actions to get there).

Given that the exchange amount is unlimited here, this could just be an “at any time” action, couldn’t it?

@Kevan Yeah, that’s fair.  I’ll vote for Josh’s patch.
