    Naalu declares no Action Card use at this time. Will anyone play a Sabotage on this card?

    You can't mine them. I just exude them naturally.

    I believe we need @Void Slayer and @MrBody to weigh in still.

    Note: If you find the high-five too tacky, I am willing to give you a free fist bump upgrade.

    Round 4 - Battle at Ashtroth-Abaddon-Loki

    Naalu removes a Fighter and Carrier.

    Naalu has 1 Dreadnought and 1 Destroyer remaining.
    L1z1x has 2 Dreadnoughts, 1 Carrier, and 1 Fighter.

    Before Round 1, L1z1x plays action card Morale Boost.

    Round 1: Naalu Dreadnought 1d10+1 = {3 < 5}, Destroyer 1d10+1 = {9 = 9}, one hit. L1z1x, how will this hit be assigned?
    L1z1x Dreadnoughts 2#1d10+2 = {6, 12 > 5}, Carrier 1d10+1 = {6 < 9}, Fighter 1d10+2 = {6 < 9}, two hits. Naalu destroys his Destroyer and damages his Dreadnought.

    Round 4 - Battle at Ashtroth-Abaddon-Loki

    Round 2: Naalu Dreadnought 1d10+1 = {2 < 5}, miss.
    L1z1x Dreadnoughts 2#1d10+1 = {4 < 5, 9 > 5} Carrier 1d10 = {8 < 9}, 1 hit. Naalu Dreadnought destroyed.

    That was a weak and pitiful hiss I just sent your way.
    Man, my snaky navy didn't do very well.
    Also, can't retreat if one is not adjacent to an activated system.
    Hmm.
    Good to know.

    Well, you can always declare a Tactical Retreat by spending a Strategy Allocation counter to activate an adjacent system at the start of a combat round. In this case, it wouldn't have mattered as your ships were all destroyed at the end of the second round.

    University up?

  • GrimmyTOAGrimmyTOA Registered User regular
    The Universities Take a Tactical Action. Activate Bereg system and move the Dreadnought and carrier (which is now carrying both Ground Forces and the Mechanized Unit) from Arinam to Bereg.

    Commence space battle.

    Fight!

    War truly has arrived to the galaxy. Confirm preliminary orders with me and I will get resolution started.

    Naalu: We can't accept your offer, I'm afraid. We have no immediate plans to attack, but in an ever-changing galaxy... 1 Trade Good is not enough to induce us to play with one flank tied behind our backs.

    Those non-immediate plans got pretty immediate.

    The L1z1x fist bumps the Jol-Nar and forks over a sizable amount of cool points.

    Sorry Stever. It was just... too tempting. We're weak. Weak!

    Proceed with planetary landings. Bombard with Dreadnought, and then one ground force goes to Bereg. The other GF and the mech land on Lirta IV

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Bereg is taken without resistance by the Jol-Nar Ground Force. Meanwhile, on Lirta IV...

    Round 4 - Invasion of Lirta IV

    Pre-Battle: Jol-Nar Dreadnought Bombardment 1d10-1 = {7 < 5}, hit. Naalu Ground Force destroyed.

    Combat resolves in favor of the Jol-Nar. It is now the L1z1x turn to act.

    I do like how the designers took a look at the L1z1x huge production and military advantage and said, "Better give them 1/1 trade treaties to balance it out," then took a look at Yin and thought, "Yeah, better do the same."


    It's in everyone else's interest for Naalu to stick around. Might I suggest going for carriers+fighters over dreadnauts? They're massively more cost effective, especially with your racial traits.

    I'm totally cool with the Naalu sticking around. They should also re-launch the trade agreement between our two peoples. :D

    The L1z1x have a fairly good idea of what they would like to do this turn. The Overmind would just like to have his Councillor double check something first. ;>_>

    That or the alcohol kicking in, whichever happens first.

    L1z1x activates the Tequ'ran/Torkan system, moving 3 Dreadnoughts carrying 2 GFs into the system from Saudor.

    1 Dreadnought with 1 GF to Tequ'ran, 2 Dreadnoughts and 1 GF to Torkan.

    Assimilation Time!
