    Spend 8TG and claim Erect a Monument (Spend 8 resources. 1 VP)

    It's a monument of a benevolent Fish-queen in its diamond bowl, in orbit around Jol. The scale has caused some tidal problems.

    Going into the agenda phase, does anybody have commodities left to trade? I've got four gathering dust. High quality science dust.

    Don't do it, we are giving he way too many options with all these trade goods.

    I messed up, and now I'm way behind. Not sure if I've got any good chances to catch up. Claim no objectives.

    Claim no objectives this round.

    In case I can shoot, so we don't actually have to wait for me to do this later ...

    Geth, roll 1d10t5

    EDIT: So, it doesn't matter anyway.

    1d10t5 0 [1d10t5=3]

    I feel your pain, MrBlarney. I also screwed up badly this round.

    Score no objectives.

    For my racial power, place an infantry on Quann.

    @MrBody to deal out action cards.

  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo A lemon squeezed in the salty fist of Poseidon Registered User regular
    Oh wow. I was positive Hedgethorn and Elvenshae were both going to turn over secret objectives this round given some slightly strange actions

    I need to start spending my Action Cards, geez. Discarding "Morale Boost" and "Ancient Burial Sites".
    Morale Boost
    At the start of a combat round: Apply +1 to the result of each of your units' combat rolls during this combat round.

    Ancient Burial Sites
    At the start of the agenda phase: Choose 1 player. Exhaust each cultural planet owned by that player.

    (Oh, and for full disclosure, I discarded "Morale Boost" and "Maneuvering Jets" following the play of the Politics Strategy Card.)
    Morale Boost
    At the start of a combat round: Apply +1 to the result of each of your units' combat rolls during this combat round.

    Maneuvering Jets
    Before you assign hits produced by another player's Space Cannon roll: Cancel 1 hit.

    As for my allocations, Allocate one token to each of Strategy Pool and Tactic Pool. (TP 1 --> 2, SP 0 --> 1)

  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo A lemon squeezed in the salty fist of Poseidon Registered User regular
    Discarding a Flank Speed
    Flank Speed- +1 movement to all ships during an a tactical action.

    Two tokens in tactics, one in strategy
    (Should take me to 2/4/2 T/F/S)

    MrBlarney, you must be sitting on some absolute dynamite if you're discarding those things. Then again, the 4th edition action card deck is more or less all great.

    voting order

    Creuss (Elvenshae): 9
    Jol-Nar (Mojo_jojo): 14
    Arborec (Hedgethorn): 14
    Letnev (Brody): 14
    Winnu (Preda): 8
    L1z1x (MrBlarney): 10

    24 hours of negotiation or action card playing before votes actually begin.

  • BrodyBrody Cabot CoveRegistered User regular
    I would like to be considered. I have only the one no longer secret objective.

  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    I have 9 votes, not 5, @MrBody.

    Hmm those numbers don't line up with my own counting. I think you've missed Preda's homeworld still being Elvenshae's

    I think you're now in the lead so you'll have to pay quite steeply

    Generally I'm happy to let people buy my votes here. Make an offer if you want them.

    Winnu (the planet) being under Creuss control means that Preda only has 8 votes available. Hedgethorn also has the chance to use his "Committee Formation" ability to automatically take the Agenda if he likes. But if that's not the case, I'd be interested in calling in favors to take the Agenda for myself. I replaced it to the top of the deck, after all.

    @Mrbody I've checked and Hedgethorn has 14 votes rather than 13

    Always happy to have your racial note. I'd give you up to ten votes for it. I'd do my best to avoid it depriving you of a token in the coming round too.

    I do not intend to claim this agenda for myself. If @Brody or @MrBlarney want to make me an offer to use Committee Formation on their behalf, I'd listen.

  • PredaPreda Registered User regular
    I'm not interested in ths agenda, so 7 of my votes are for sale if someone is interested in them. They even can come cheap.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Hmm, if most people aren't interesting in taking the Agenda for themselves, I think I'll call in @Elvenshae from our deal last round to provide some votes to me. I'll think about other deals in case Brody tries to gather more votes to tip the balance.

    chirisigtext.png
  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    Sure, @MrBlarney. I'm willing to toss in my remainder if you're interested.
