    Sabotages are open for that card but I don't think anyone will be burning one for it and it's not affecting much this early so we can keep going in the mean time.

    Right, next up is the galactic council phase which means we can all execute up to two transactions with one another (one per vote).

    I've got a commodity I'd like to flip. I also have my racial promissory card (which gains you a free copy of a technology when I research one - very useful for the current objectives). I'm amenable to bribery for voting too.

    @MrBlarney I'd be interested in your racial card - it feels like a direct swap for mine would be fair?

    @MrBody can we clarify effects like on the L1Z1X promissory card. If there is no token to be removed from his strategy pool does it function without a cost on L1Z1X or is it just unplayable? Letnev's card is similar but with trade goods. The wording is "spend" for L1Z1X and "lose" for Letnev. Both seem ambiguous to me and I'm behind filtered email that won't let me get to a FAQ

    I'm interestsed in both @MrBlarney and @Brody ceasefire promissory note, and I'm willing to negotiate the price (but at least to my ceasefire in return is a possibility, like my trade or my no vote). I'm also interested in an excange of support for the throne from either @MrBlarney or @Hedgethorn

  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    @Mojo_Jojo

    I'd be interested in your science note again, as well, and have (potentially) quite a few votes to throw around. I'd also like to stress the danger that the Hedgethorns to your west represent; you share one of the most militarized borders in space, and he has the capability to produce reinforcements right on his front lines. We should coordinate efforts.

    @MrBlarney

    I'd like to continue our relationship beyond the current Peace at Saudor. What would you say to working together against, I dunno, the Winnu?

    I'd be willing to agree to a ceasefire with the Winnu people. Or, if you are unable to provide a promissory ceasefire, your Support for the Throne would be much appreciated.

    @Mojo_Jojo I'd happily give you my racial promissory note for yours, in case you're worried about my production abilities.

    @Preda Let's swap Support for the Throne.

    Hmm, a tempting deal, but you've already researched the number one tech I'd want to copy (Hyper Metabolism). Throw in your commodity and I'll absolutely take it; my tokens are quite precious for the time being.

    As for requirements for play, I think the only condition for play is that it is "the start of your turn". Then the rest of the card is followed to the best ability possible, so if I have no tokens in Strategy pool, you still get a token to allocate yourself.

    Where to go, where to go? What kind of ways can we continue our cooperation? 'Cause if I do end up swapping Support or Ceasefire notes with Winnu, that kind of prevents my contributions to any anti-Winnu campaign. I'm still thinking about what I want from Winnu, since offers are open there.

    @MrBlarney ,I think it's a poor deal if I'm tossing in the commodity given how those objectives have laid out so I'll shop elsewhere thanks.

    @Hedgethorn, Given I've got your ceasefire card I'm pretty well insulated from you so I'm not super interested in your promissory card. Can you top it with a couple of trade goods?

    @Preda , you effectively lost one of your racial powers (and a couple of VP) on that round plus you're quite far away. I'm inclined to trade with you if you wanted to make me a better offer for my racial card?

    Also I still have my support for the throne card burning a hole in my pocket, which has a side benefit of ensuring peace and unity. That would need another such card in exchange though.

    That's a fair enough argument; I thought it was worth a probe. I'll take the original offer of trading racial promissory notes if you don't get anything better, then.
