Playing as a Roman you can park a ship just outside a greek port, say Sparta, keep a diplomat next to the same city. Within a turn you can blockade the port (going to war with them), and then immediately have your diplomat offer a cease fire in exchange for a tidy sum. Within a single turn you can do this multiple times since it takes no move points once you are in location. I extorted about 10k each time until the Greeks were drained. Is this a bug, or am I taking advantage of a scared faction? I have not seen if this works with other factions.

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I hadn't noticed it.

Yea, you're taking advantage of the rich Greeks. Now that they're poor, they've got no advantages you can take, hehe.

Even though they are rich, they shouldn't throw away their gold that way. It shouldn't be possible to do the same trick more than once or twice during a turn.

IMO it's a bug, and should be corrected in the next patch.

Heh heh... I discovered this, and bilked the Greeks to the tune of at least 50K. It stopped working, though, when I took one of their towns. Now when I ask for a ceasefire they want me to pay them.

Uh, huh?
