I follow the 10 square rule and reserve the right to attack anyone who comes within 10 squares of my cities without previously given permission. Also anyone who settles/farm on my sov or army encampment spots will probably be attacked or yelled at.
Have fun !
p.s. I am always looking for Iceheart, Brown Bear/ Wild Dog furs and hides. Contact me if you have any spare to sell, i have gold available for those....
