    Send 1 TG to Arborec if admitted.

    It's true that you're not neighbors. How are you guys resolving this? Send it after the battle? @hedgethorn agree with this?

    I'm willing to trust that @Preda will pay the 1 trade good PDS maintenance fee after this battle.

    Edit: Aren't we actually neighbors via the Alpha wormhole? Or does the fact that Preda controls Lodor not suffice, given the presence of the Letnev destroyer?

    Preda needs to move to become eligible for the PDS fire, it's an immediate thing therefore binding. There's no issue

    Strangely enough, yeah, you two are neighbors even though Letnev is in control of the space part of the system. So the transaction of 1 TG for holding off on PDS fire can be performed now and binding. I think that we can move on to combat resolution now? (@MrBody)

    Actually, I'll just roll it so we can get on with things and players have been rolling combats all game anyways.

    Combat Round 1

    Winnu has Flagship "Salai Sai Corian" for 1 die, 3 Dreadnought IIs, 1 Cruiser, and 3 Fighters. (1 Infantry loaded)
    L1z1x has 1 Cruiser II.

    Geth roll 1d10t7+3d10t5+1d10t7+3d10t9 for Winnu
    Geth roll 1d10t6 for L1z1x

    Winnu:
    1d10t7+3d10t5+1d10t7+3d10t9 1 [1d10t7=3] [3d10t5=3, 1, 1] [1d10t7=7] [3d10t9=4, 4, 6]
    L1z1x:
    1d10t6 0 [1d10t6=3]

    chirisigtext.png
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Only one hit landed, but that's enough for my Cruiser II to be destroyed. I suppose I can take my turn now? Let's do the obvious thing.

    Activate the Mecatol Rex system. (TP 4 --> 3)
    Move in 1 Cruiser and 1 Fighter from the L1z1x Home System.
    Bombard Mecatol Rex before landing all 3 Infantry in the system.


    I believe @Mojo_Jojo has the option of Space Cannon Offense before bombardment.

    chirisigtext.png
  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo But do you really believe him? Registered User regular
    Well you've got dreadnaughts to soak up any hits, so FIRE! (Not activating the graviton laser system)

    Geth roll 2d10t6

    (6 is the target number due to L1z1x antimass deflectors)

    2d10t6 1 [2d10t6=1, 6]

    Just 1 small point before going on...
    Unveil Flagship- Win a space combat in a system with your flagship. Does not count if your flagship is destroyed in that combat. VP3->4
    Than, please, go on...

    I'll tap the Sustain Damage on one of my Dreadnoughts for that PDS hit.

    @Hedgethorn for reactions before resolving bombardment (three t4 rolls) and invasion (3 Infantry). Nothing else to claim on my end at this time.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    No reaction.

    @MrBlarney to destroy my infantry.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Bombardment of Mecatol Rex

    L1z1x has 2 Super-Dreadnought IIs, 1 additional die roll for Plasma Scoring.

    Geth roll 3d10t4 for L1z1x bombardment

    L1z1x bombardment:
    3d10t4 1 [3d10t4=3, 7, 2]

    chirisigtext.png
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    One hit, destroying 1 Arborec Infantry. 3 L1z1x Infantry land without need for combat.

    @Elvenshae has the next action, but considering how every player has modified the board state, perhaps we could use a status update from our host @MrBody?

    chirisigtext.png
  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    I can take my next action now, actually.

    Tactical Action: activate the Creuss system.

    Build 2 Dreadnaughts (8), 2 Infantry (1), 2 Fighters (1); exhaust all of my planets to pay for it.


    Now @MrBody should update the map. :)

    Whoa, Creuss doesn't have Sarween Tools. How 'bout that.

    MrBody, I think the action log is missing Creuss's activation of Lazar-Sakulag and subsequent bombardment and invasion attempt.

    EDIT (on next post): I forgot about that Terraforming Initiative, huh.

    So, we can safely say that there are three sabotages (with an outside chance of four) out there in people's hands, as are all four direct hits.

    Just remember that the 3rd edition rule of flagships needing to be built in the home system is gone. You can now construct them anywhere.
