    Just so it's easier for bookkeeping when scanning the posts for orders...

    When a transaction is finalized, state "(proposal) is accepted" in your bolded player color"

    It helps separate the offered proposals from the finalized accepted ones.

    @MrBody I should have 2 tactics and 2 strategy tokens after the status phase. Everyone else's might be wrong too, I'm not sure.

    Edit: Also, I forgot to put infantry out during the status phase again. One infantry on Quann please.

    You're right on Leadership. But I'm ok with Elvenshae taking Imperial. So more of his neighbours will want to attack him...
    Technology.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    I would take Imperial, but with Mecatol Rex blocked off due to that Diplomacy Rider, I'm much less incentivized to pick it up. Why should I stunt my game so that everyone else can benefit? What do I get out of it? I'd much rather pick up Construction so that I can shore up my currently-lacking infrastructure. Let him get one more VP, then if someone else takes Speaker afterwards, we can start fighting it out more earnestly next round. I'll hold on locking my pick in for a little bit in case there are other arguments.

    chirisigtext.png
  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo A lemon squeezed in the salty fist of Poseidon Registered User regular
    It's more likely to be 2VP as he gets the Metacol point and then can claim an objective. If he has an instant claim secret objective too he could pick up 4VP this round

    Taking it yourself gives you 1VP from an early claim and a fresh secret objective to give another route to another.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Man, I don't think I'm in a position to pick up any of those public objectives in the middle of the round. Spending three command tokens, maybe, but I could just as easily grab that at the end of the round so I can be flexible about actions during the Action Phase. I'm probably not going to have enough research performed, either. Yes, I do have your racial promissory note to get more tech, but are you willing to coordinate your purchase for my benefit in that case?

    As for Creuss, I don't think they're in a position to grab two Public Objectives this turn, so they probably won't get anything extra out of the Imperial strategy outside of the 1 VP.

    chirisigtext.png
  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo A lemon squeezed in the salty fist of Poseidon Registered User regular
    Yeah I can make sure not to pick a technology in a colour you already have two of.

    That's enough thinking for now. Because of the order of operations, I'll have to choose my tech before Jol-Nar, something that doesn't play well with what I want to get. Select the (4) Construction Strategy Card.

    @Elvenshae is up for strategy card selection.

  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    So, I'd just like to point out that while I do currently have 2 VPs, only one of them is actually "mine." The other one is on-loan from our good friends the Letnev. Meanwhile, the Jol-Nar have claimed a victory point through an objective, and there are two more technology-related objectives they have yet to claim.

    If there is anyone we should be looking at askance, it is the science fish!
