    There's no guarantee that Yssaril will approve such a deal and you're not getting Trade Goods this time. Unless you're saying that you plan on taking Trade next turn, in which case there really ain't much time to make use of the trade agreement.

    I'd be up for if Yssaril gives me a Trade Good and allows my Trade Agreement deals this turn to be accepted without further negotiation, though.

    Okay fine. The Yssaril give their last TG to the Xxcha and agree to approve Xxcha trades this turn

    We immediately propose Trade Agreement with the Xxcha.
    Not that we can formalise this yet, but we think it is best to strike whilst the iron is hot.

    I'll probably pass an agreement to you, but we'll see for sure once Trade II is triggered. For now, I'll take Yssaril's goods and use Xxcha's racial ability to discard and redraw the Political card. (SA 3 --> 2) The following Political card is drawn:

    Humane Labor (LAW)
    For: The production limit of all Space Docks is lowered to 2.
    Against: No Space Docks may produce units for the remainder of the round.

    I'm actually okay with either of the card results. Unless someone out there wants me not to be. (Good ol' forums Politics primary with the Xxcha and Necessary Bureaucracy. Hooray.)

    I'm not bribing any more... I can accept at least one of these.

    Sad that we didn't get a better law either time when I had the majority of votes though :(

    I'll also propose 2:2 with the Xxcha, for future reference. If there's more than 2 offers you can keep your agreement with the Xxcha without helping the Muaat get further ahead.

    I also don't mind either result of this law, although I prefer Against.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    I'm not so sure I want this card played..
    I can potentially give the Xxcha TG after my trade stations are refreshed, if they kill this card.

    I could use another Trade Good. Sounds fine to me. Use Xxcha's racial ability to discard and redraw the Political card. (SA 2 --> 1) The following Political card is drawn:

    Science Community Speaker (LAW)
    Elect Player: The elected player may execute the secondary ability of the Technology Strategy without spending a Command Counter from his Strategy Allocation area. In addition, his cost to purchase Technologies is reduced by 1.

    Hrmm. Potentially powerful, but we are in the lategame here. I don't think I can extract additional wealth from others though, can I?

    Yeah, let's move ahead with the vote. By which I suppose we mean Yssaril votes. @El Skid‌?

    Activate The Yawning Void. Move cruiser in from Fleshy Bankrupcy.

    ...And now all the systems around Mecantol are occupied and also activated...except the one I own that could still be vacated this turn. Interesting!

    @jakobagger‌ for Mentak's turn

    Fire PDS units into Fleshy Bankruptcy. We're sorry Yssaril, but you're in the way.

    ... but you did activate the system. Otherwise, how did you move your ship there? This also happened on Naalu's last turn, so it shouldn't be that much of a surprise.

    Tactical action: spend one CP (4 >3) to activate Saudor system. Move everything from Perimeter to Saudor (Dread, 2 cruisers, 1 GF hitching a ride on the dreadnought).

    Yeah, I thought the Muaat had to activate the system as well to fire, but that's only if they do it as an action, not in response to moving into an adjacent system (with DSC). And I remember now that happened before as well. Sigh.

    Just another in my calvacade of dumb mistakes over this game, carry on!

    Our technology is failing us at the moment, and we have regressed onto our auxiliary life support systems aboard our flagship.
    As such, we do not have our navigation systems online and am flying blind at the moment.

    We activate The Yawning Void and fly a Destroyer in from Methanol Rex, so long as there remains a single Destroyer on Methanol Rex as well.
    We believe there were a pair left in orbit around the planet, but are unable to verify this at this time.
    We can still be reached through normal lightwave channels, if there is the need for us to revise our orders.

    The marauding would of course be restricted to Ginnungagap. The Nekro Virus would pay you 2 Trade Goods [eventually] for the privilege as well as assistance in a future disagreement.
