    I really enjoy shooting my pdses, but I can forgo that pleasure for a TG @brody

    1 TG to @Mojo_Jojo for blatant bribery.

    @Brody immediately returns me my Support for the Throne promissory note, losing him 1 point.

    No action cards from me, but I will be using my Space Cannon. @Mojo_Jojo to decide if he wants to shoot as well.

    @Elvenshae this is also your chance to declare retreats. There is no reason for this to get any bloodier than it has to. I want you to know that we still consider the Creuss friends, and thank them for opening the way to Mecatol Rex. We will surely keep them at our right hand in the empire of the Letnev.

    Than, Carrier from Lodor With both Fighter and the GF moves through Zohbat and pick up another GF than goes in to Winnu. From Zhobat both Dreadnoght (1 carrying a GF the other carring a fighter) and a Cruiser move to Winnu and finally the drednought and GF from Thibah move in too. (everything but a fighter on Zhobat and the things stuck on Torkan moves in). Let's open the dances. I've given ny orders to the Host, but substantially, ALL IN!
