    The Baron looks over his "How To Rule The Galaxy" book. Hmm...
    I select the (7) Technology card.

    We select the (5) Trade strategy card.

    We are not above doing business with the not-Hive. Profit is good.

    OK. A Q I didn't see in the rules.
    Why did The Lazax get to deploy their forces before Strat Card selection?

    It's one of the Lazax race's special abilities: "During setup, you may place any of your starting units (except your Space Dock) in systems adjacent to your Home System." Setup comes before the start of the game and the first Strategy Phase, so they get essentially a bonus turn ahead of the other players.

    That's our special ability. Compensates for starting right in the middle I guess.

    edit: the vast Imperial bureaucracy is slow and inefficient.

    Please make sure to list your TG/AC; SA/FS/CP counts after actions as a safeguard in recordkeeping, as noted in the Odds and Ends section of the second post. Something like:

    TG/AC: 0/0

    Take a Tactical Action, activating Mellon and Zohbat.

    Move 1 Carrier, 1 Destroyer and 2 ground units from Jord.

    Land 1 ground force each on Mellon and Zohbat.

    Seems like a good idea to establish our boarders early.

    Hmm, sorry about the delay I was having trouble getting in touch with lodwilk.

    Civil War in Sol? Commanders aren't talking to each other.

  • jakobaggerjakobagger KøbenhavnRegistered User regular
    By the way I only just now noticed that apparently future Earth is ruled by Danes or at least Scandinavians - the sun is called Sol(en) and the Earth, Jord(en) in the Scandinavian languages (-en is the definite article). Probably intentional when the designer is named Petersen.

  • stever777stever777 AFK most Saturdays Registered User regular
    Well, I'm part Norwegian so I should get to rule there.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Well, when people aren't around, people aren't around. It's okay for things to be slow at the start, for teams to coordinate, but later in the game, I'm hoping that once teams are in sync with one another, the pace of the game will pick up a bit. (I suppose the idea is to go at the pace of the faster teammate once a direction has been decided upon, rather than needing to convene meticulously for each decision.)

    SeGaTai and Cayrus are up to act next.

    Map and status updates, by the way, will come after significant changes. In the beginning, when there is little interaction, these will be less frequent, but later on, I'll post them more regularly.

    Isn't this one of the more complicated & long games to be played here?
    Seems like those playing would have to really commit to it.
    I'm all-go, of course, but I could see it dying on the vine after a while.

    N'orr

    Activate the primary ability of (5) Trade, receiving 3 trade goods and opening trade negotiations.

    • We propose a Trade Agreement between ourselves [value 2] and The Emirates of Hacan [value 3].
    • We propose a Trade Agreement between ourselves [value 1] and The Barony of Letnev [value 1].

    We would like to use this opportunity to establish a friendly and profitable relationship with our closest neighbors. For anyone else who wishes to create trade agreements: a modest customs fee, to be paid to us at your earliest convenience, should smooth the process admirably.

    Trade negotiations are on! Once all races have made their proposals, the N'orr may decide which to approve and which to refuse. Make sure that your negotiations are performed before you propose, since there will not be a second round of proposals!

    The Xxcha would be happy to accept human trade goods.

    We formally propose our 2 trade good for Sol's 2
    We also propose our 2 trade good for Lazax's 2

    The Jol-Nar would be interested in trading 3 for 3 with the Hacan-which I believe would not require any approval-in the interest of good faith with our neighbors

    Sorry about my absence. There's been a major incident at my work that pretty much had all of us working minimum 12 hour days to fix the problem. So I hadn't had time for the forums. I'll try and catch up quickly.

    The Hacan look kindly upon the offer from our neighbors the N'orr, but I need to check with the council before we formalize the agreement and decide where to offer our second contract.

  • FunkyWaltDoggFunkyWaltDogg Registered User regular
    Before the Hacan commit to any trade agreements, we wish to enquire: would the honored representatives of the Empire be willing to trade 3 for 3?

    We eagerly await the favor of your reply.
