    Most of my planets - ex-Sakulag - should be exhausted at the moment.

    Ed:
    Also, I should have Brody's Support for the Throne and he should have mine.

    Ed2: Liking those dots.

    We Trade!

    I gain 3 trade goods and replenish my commodities (4).

    @Mojo_Jojo may refresh his commodities for free and I hand him 1 commodity if he hands me back my Cease Fire, as was agreed in ancient times.
    @Brody may trade freely, and I hand him two commodities if he hands me two of his.
    @MrBlarney may trade freely, and as a reminder he owes me four commodities or trade goods.

    @Hedgethorn may not trade freely, unless he wishes to pay me two commodities to do so.
    @Preda may not trade freely, unless he wishes to pay me two commodities to do so.

    We're not neighbors, Elvenshae, so I can't pay you any commodities now, if I understand the rules correctly. I could promise to give you my Trade Agreement card at the earliest opportunity in exchange for allowing me to freely trade now, but that's the best I could do.

    That's correct; you could promise that; and if you did, I'd accept it!

    Honour the deal with Creuss and hand back the cease fire for a free refresh and one of his commodities

    Indeed. I'll transfer two commodities and my Trade Agreement promissory note once we are neighbors, which might be as soon as the end of my next turn. Before I take that turn, I'm curious if you would allow me to receive one of your commodities or trade goods in return. I would be happy to return the favor later, perhaps by lending you some of my votes in the upcoming Agenda phase?

    Also, I think the map shows two of my fighters still in my home system where they should have been moved with my carrier to the Dal Bootha-Xxehan system?

    I'll take that deal. You get my trade agreement note whenever we become neighbors, in exchange for commodities now.

  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    @MrBlarney Accepted; one commodity promised in exchange for Agenda votes on a vote to-be-determined.

    @Hedgethorn Accepted.


    Just waiting for @Brody to honor or repudiate our deal. :)

    Okay this is getting messy.

    Only put immediate, finalized transaction in your race color. Future promises are not binding. Colorized text is only for orders to be carried out by the host. I was halfway through making the updates when I realized half of them were just future promises.

    Also no proposals in color, only final acceptances.

    Can we redo these orders only with final, immediate deals?

    Activate the Saudor system. (TP 3 --> 2)
    Move in 1 carrier, 2 fighters, and 1 infantry from Bereg.
    Land 1 infantry on Saudor.


    @Elvenshae: Put forward transaction with the Creuss, giving 2 Commodities and my "Trade Agreement" Promissory Note in exchange for 1 of your Commodities.
    In regards to our deal, I may reserve some of my own votes if you need my votes for the first agenda in the Agenda Phase. And, of course, I won't vote against myself in a negative Elect Player / Elect Planet kind of vote. Eh, it'll be clear how the deal will work out.

    Right, I make that my turn then

    @Hedgethorn we were talking about trading last turn, you still down with that?
    I present two options
    Option A: We both swap 3 commodities and our cease fire cards
    Option B: You give me 1 commodity, I give you 3, you give me your cease fire
    I'm a little concerned about your massing forces and would really prefer to direct my attention elsewhere
