Steady, thanks for catching that bug for me.  Lumberjacks are Supposed! to act 
the same as stone masons once the resources are gone on the map.  I've put that 
on my list of things to fix.

I believe you have the right idea about raiding the enemy in mission 3.  While 
their total army is still relatively small, sending your own will mean they 
can't send as much to attack you.  Once they finally grow large enough, killing 
several of their soldiers won't affect their next raid attack if they still 
have 5 of everything left after you killed some.  Once it reaches that point, I 
also switch over to total defense.

Very nicely done sir!
