    Veto goes through. New agenda.

    Research Team: Propulsion

    Elect Industrial planet

    Attach this card to the planet. When the owner of this planet researches technology, they may exhaust this card to ignore 1 blue prerequisite.

    Well, this is a bit more benign than the vetoed agenda. Even though it's late game, it's still got potential for whomever wins it. Light/Wave Deflector can be scary with a high-movement fleet, which seems to be the case for everyone with Gravity Drive. And even for Hedgethorn and Preda, getting blitz pushes with Fleet Logistics can also be game-changing. I'm feeling pretty willing to sell my votes for a couple of Trade Goods, though. Not so into it to try and go for it myself, plus voting first is quite disadvantageous.

    I was thinking of voting for Wellon, currently under Jol-Nar control, to neutralize any impact of the Agenda.

  • BrodyBrody The Watch The First ShoreRegistered User regular
    Actually, looking at the map again, Zohbat is not a valid target. However, Thibah is, and is already a blue specialty planet. This means it won't have any real effect at all. Unless someone wants to buy my vote, thats where it will be going.

    No it would have an effect

    To use a tech speciality you exhaust the planet
    To use this you exhaust the card

    The reason why I want to vote for Wellon, again, is because it is under Jol-Nar control and thus not any use for them. For anyone else, it's essentially a free jump in the tech tree, which I don't really want to give to anyone without a proper negotiation compensation. (Of course, I also won't fight it if anyone wants to freely put their votes on Saudor or Tar'mann...)

    That was a joke, you know? I hope that it's clear that my leadoff position in the voting order has firmly put me in the 'sell' position with my votes, choosing to put my votes towards Wellon if there are no takers.

    I'd @ everyone, but it's hard from the phone.

    Did Brody ever receive his VP for activating the Imperial Strategy card while controlling MR in round 4? I don't see any record of it on the Victory Track.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    If you take the difference between the total VPs and the listed sources, the value is 1, which should be the Imperial Primary VP. It seems like special VPs like that are currently implied, but not explicitly tracked, and I think MrBody said that he was looking into how to change documentation at the top of the previous page.

    If it's time to vote, I'll put 10 votes on Wellon. @Elvenshae is next up to vote.

    Actually, I think he's right. I have claimed 3 (1) point public objectives, 1 (1) point secret objective, and I got 1 (1) pt Imperial VP.

    Sorry, I probably should have payed more attention, and gotten that cleared up sooner. I think I kept forgetting I claimed the Trade Goods VP, because I was not anticipating having the TG's to buy it.

    Yeah, that was my miscount, I missed one of the public objective marks. It's also really hard to remember what's happened with a game that takes this long to play.

    Also, looks like I've gotta get ready for Winnu's upcoming speed-up for the coming round. Those ships have got to go somewhere and I feel like I'm in the way.

    That is a peculiar move, that action card feels like one that could win the game. The rest of your hand must be solid gold if you can throw that one away

    Anyhow:

    No sabotage, choose Warfare instead
