    We'll happily do something other than take potshots at your flagship with our PDS this turn, VS. If you're planning on moving away from our home systems, however, we urge you in the strongest terms to do so soon.

    Jol Nar plays the Primary Ability of the Production Strategy Card. We exhaust our remaining planets (Jol, Nar, Arinam, Lirta IV, and Rigel 3) for 7 resources, add in two resources for Production, and Four Trade Goods, and our Sarween Tools bonus, giving us a production value of 14.

    We build one War Sun and four fighters (using our Eviro-Compensator bonus to allow us to squeak out the fourth).

    Others may now play on the Secondary.

    Ok, great. Glad I can help out. Hi everyone.

  • FidohFidoh BelgiumRegistered User regular
    I want to point out, if it hasn't been pointed out already, that the Creuss are getting their secret objective this turn (8 ships and a space dock on Mecatol Rex). It might not be a bad idea for the Muaat to move their cruisers from Qucen'n and Rarron to Mecatol Rex, as this would most likely keep the Ghosts' number of ships below 8.

    Also, to keep things moving, I'll just play...

    The Mindnet plays on the secondary of Production and exhausts L1Z1X to build 1 dreadnought on L1Z1X.

  • SeGaTaiSeGaTai Registered User regular
    You machines and your faulty logic loops, you always seem to get stuck on these things.

    Probably would have taken diplomacy if I need to camp the middle for an objective.

    Reinforced the middle to keep it from being easy pickings from Muaat while leaving my homeworld undefended to his warsun. Can't claim objectives w/o a homeworld. Only got to build troops there due to well timed production.

    Muaat can go at all the remaining public objectives by taking Mecatol-that seems bad.

    Do your own dirty work lazy robots.

    Could have totally invaded his homeworld thanks jol-nar.

    I mean... ally, would never do that and all that stuff.

    Anyway I get a bonus to space combat which means...

    Muaat

    Activate Darien with a tactical action. Move Warsun carrying 4 fighters and a mechanized infantry to Darien from Muaat, pass through Quann and pick up another fighter. Move 2 cruisers from Rarron to Darien. Move High Alert Token to Darien.

    Don't worry Yin will be remembering Jol-Nar pointlessly screwing us over with the lack of PDS cover when it comes time to approving trade agreements.

  • Void SlayerVoid Slayer Very Suspicious Registered User regular
    I thought that the active player got to fire PDS, then the active players ships were vulnerable to PDS from other players, so your ships could have been hit or your PDS could have hit my ships, but a third party could not have PDS fired at my ships.

    So jol nar did cover you by attacking my flagship with PDS last turn.

    Just wondering.

    Not that I wouldn't be totally ruthless if there was an opening, but I also wouldn't go making promises to the contrary then break it first thing. Pretty low.

    I guess it's safe to say at this point that both my secret objectives involved Mecatol Rex. One was possible, but a lot harder for Yin to pull off than anyone else. The other was bonkers crazy that required over 30 resources dumped into stuff no one would want and could be undone at any time. That objective was 2 points, which contributed to at least an extra inch of my jaw dropping when I saw L1z1x's "own 2 systems adjacent to homeworlds" objective for 2 points.
