Early agent orders

Early agent orders and standing orders

I couldn't stop thinking about this since DuPont mocked me with Kenny Rogers' lyrics, then, in the shower, of course, it came to me!

The new early agent orders are before order 60 (create standing order), so don't execute on the turn created. On the one hand, this is good because no gold cost. On the other hand, if your guard or counterespionage ongoing need is also urgent, you would need to use two orders, one to CE for the current turn, and another to set up the standing order for subsequent turns. On the third hand, you might be able to do this with the same agent (still two orders) with the extra order button, since the standing order CE won't go, the current turn one should go. I just tried to do this on the turn entry and it gave me an error, but it might work on the actual turn.

You got to know when to hold em

Pine, you need more hands in the shower.  The new agent orders occur prior to production.  Let that sink in like your conditioner.  I suspect this was an oversight.  Theft should now be an important agent attack strategy.  If you steal a kingdoms remaining gold... you cripple thier counterespionage efforts for the next turn.

Wow, I thought I was sneaky by giving two orders to the same agent in one turn (changing the answer to the multiple orders trivia question), but you are over the top sneaky. As usual, of course. Brilliant.

Update. It doesn't work. I think having the recurring order number at 60 means that the CE doesn't get executed (because 54 already happened.) This means no recurring guards or CE until fixed.
