I'd build him a giant wooden horse, and offer it as a present, and he'll think people are inside of it, but when he opens the trap door it should pour hot and sour pork on him.

okay, a moat and a wall.

But seige > Wall.

He needs flame archers to fire at the long range seige, and hot oil to pour on battering rams.

Hot oil doesn't do anything to battering rams.

If I remember my strategy from Civilization 4, you can take on those catapults with tanks.

Build a tank.

It...kills the people using them, hombre. 0.o

You use close range defenses for scaling troops, rams, etc...it's harder to take out long range artillery like trebs though. =(

1) build a catapult and put it in plain view
2) on an old piece of parchment, with an old feather ink pen, write a message about the duality of his character and all the broken promises of a groomed yard an civil children. explain to him that this breakage of the social contract instigates war and if he doe not cease the construction of his war machines then you will be forced to appease him with the full furry of your modern weaponry. make sure to use olde english words like ye and wise and beautiful woman.

if he doesnt get the picture, attack
if he wants a treaty, sign it, then attack when he least expects it

...:yawn; theres my good deed for the day :laugh:

If a wooden horse doesn't work, you can make a badger.

You can put a roof on a battering ram. I've even seen one with solar panels on it.
