    @MrBody, If you're putting points from the Imperial Strategy card under the Objectives list, I received 1 VP that way. (I should have 5 total, which you list correctly.)

    Elvenshae's VP from the Imperial Rider also hasn't been added to the total count yet, either; I think they should now be at 6 VP.

    I'm also still a little bothered that Letnev's Secret Objective has been accounted in the "Objectives" section while everyone else's Secret Objectives are in their personal listings. I would argue that "Support of the Throne" should also go in the "Objectives" section, but at least it's consistent that they're all listed with their owning players?

    Updated with (hopefully) all sources of VP listed in the objectives section, including laws and support for the throne notes.

    Creuss is listed as getting 2 VP from the Imperial primary ability, but I think they only got 1 VP from the Imperial primary ability? The other 1 VP should be from claiming the Custodians of Mecatol Rex token, I think. I've just been zipping through random pages to try and remember the game history so I might have missed something or I'm hallucinating game activity.

    EDIT: Turns out my memory is spotty: see further posts.

    Did Creuss ever actually play Imperial while they held Metacol Rex?

    I looked back through things, and yeah, you're right. Imperial primary didn't happen for Creuss. I guess I misremembered. You should probably not trust me on issues of game state outside of myself for this game. (You can trust me in the game I'm hosting, though.) So does that mean that Creuss is back down to 5 VP total?

  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo But do you really believe him? Registered User regular
    Quite possibly.

    This is why everybody should play honestly, like me, and only claim public objectives

    @Elvenshae is there a particular technology you're looking for? I'd quite like my promissory note back so that I can sell it and you've been sitting on it for a while now.

    ... sitting on it, @Mojo_Jojo ? That would imply that I've had the option to use it, but haven't done so.

    Since you gave it to me, you researched Gravity Drive (I had it) and Space Dock II (pass); picked up Carrier 2 and a fish special, when I already had Carrier 2 and can't get the other.

    So I don't see that I'm sitting on it at all. :D

    That being said, there are many attractive technologies from where I'm sitting. Bacterial weapons, Integrated Economies, Assault Cannons ... Dreadnought 2s ...

    @mrbody I've just noticed I forgot to place my regenerated infantry into the status phase. If it's not too late can I place the one survivor from the Creuss genocide on Jol?

    And I suppose I may as well stop that card, so...

    In that case, tactical action in the Lazar-Sakulag system.

    @Preda, I'm happy to see a friendly, throne-supporting neighbor guarding the other side of the Beta wormhole, but I'd be even happier if that friendly neighbor paid a trade good to help maintain this old rusty PDS I've got pointed at that wormhole. I'd hate to see it accidentally misfire and hit a friendly ship.

    Quite reasonable. I understand you have a thing with the Letnev preventing you from taking action towards the Alpha Wormhole. It's too bad you don't have your Support of the Throne still, or else I'd ask to trade yours for mine following the battle.

    I've got nothing to declare at this time, so we can go right ahead with combat. (@MrBody)

    I do wonder, however, where you're going to go from the Beta Wormhole system. As it has been noted through the Space Cannon discussion, Arborec's on the other side, and you've mutually traded Support of the Throne cards. I've got my doubts that you're that willing to break such an agreement.

    I just noticed something else, that when Hedgethorn activated Quann, Mojo_Jojo should have had an opportunity for PDS fire since he has PDS II units in the adjacent Wellon and Abyz systems. Shall we resolve that as well?
