    Aw man.
    No prommisory notes.
    How am I meant to offload these hot war suns now?

    Edit: I would like to play with prommisory notes because then we have something interesting to do with commodities.

    I don't mind leaving it up to a player vote since the game hasn't started yet. I wanted to leave them out for this first game so that there would be less bookkeeping to do, but I can add in Promissory Notes if the majority of players want them.

    I would prefer not to add something race-specific after already choosing races.

    This is a fair point.
    I picked whilst thinking they were in play because of the racial specific ones being detailed in the racial traits.

    We could perhaps just play without the race specific ones, but with the generic ones?

    I made sure to not list the racial promissory notes whenever I posted the racial abilities, etc., though. If you saw them, I don't think it was in this thread.

    Still waiting on secret objective choices from @Phyphor and @Lykouragh; Phyphor also needs to choose the starting technology for Winnu. Also interested in hearing from Lykouragh and @jakobagger regarding use of Promissory notes (which would include racial notes.)

    Yeah, it was probably in the other thread.

    I'm fine with not playing with promissory notes if it would sabotage the race draft.
    Just a bit hard to see how Commodities will be traded in anything other than a one-for-one basis in that circumstance.

    (Also of note, it looks like anyone can issue a transaction with anyone during the Agenda phase, once that starts, rather than with only neighbours like in the Action phase.)

    I don't really have enough basis of knowledge to feel strongly either way about promissory notes I don't think.

    This is my first game of TI4 and I only played 3 like a couple of times so expect a lot of helpless flailing around exploring the game space via experimental moves.

    Here are the promissory notes

    Here
    Race specific ones

    The generics are just "big advance notice until you can attack me", "I get all your commodities the next time you them", and "I get to block you for one agenda vote". There is a 4th, but I honestly have no idea who would ever want to give away 1 VP to another player.

    The racial ones I think add very interesting possibilities to the game. I'm not sure how they would affect the draft picks since you never get to use them yourself. I guess Muaat could extract huge favors for his warsun one?

    I think they would be interesting without really adding any rules complexity. I could see the host not wanting to keep track of the extra bookkeeping but as far as the players I don't think they're complex at all.

    I think promissory notes would be fun to have in, as long as they don't push logistical overhead through the roof for MrBlarney.

    5 players, 2 of them new to the game, and we got 'er done in 7 hours flat!.... because I prebuilt the map and dumped a bunch of objectives out on the table once they'd got the hang of the game to speed things up ;)

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    I'll have to update my trackers to put Promissory Notes into the game, but since most of the players want it, it will be done. I don't have enough time to do it now as I'm about to head to work, but I'll finish putting things together tonight and we'll start the first round.

    I've never actually sat down to a physical game before. What is the typical think time for a player's action turn? What were the worse cases of AP?

    This group actually had very low AP, but everyone staring at the enormous tech tree is definitely the mechanic that is the worst offender for playtime. The other is just the elaborate turn order with activating strategy secondaries and turns not going linearly around the table- so someone's got to be on top of being the "it's your turn" sheriff or you'll get lots of sitting chatting not taking turns. Sitting at the table with TI3 is actually very nice though because you have a reasonable amount of time to think about your next turn as the turn order goes around, and it's interrupted with light easy decisions like "do I want to spend a CC for an action card" that take no time at all.

    I'd say that nobody took more than 2 minutes to take a turn ever- it's just that between rolling out battles moving stuff around on the board and the maybe 100 decisions per player you make in a game of TI, it really does take more than 1.5 hours per player.

    Especially the buffed L1z1x Inheritance Systems

    C seems by far the best starting location while B is by far the worst. I'm now thinking a snaking draft is the only way to go if you use it.

    I'm not sure. Having the fewest commodities seems like a bigger downside with promissory notes included than it would be without them. And the L1z1x racial promissory note is very unappealing to give out given how difficult it will be for me to replenish strategy tokens with the low influence values of planets near starting location B (which I knew I would end up with unless I chose a starting location and took whatever race came to me). It also doesn't carry enough of a reward to strongly appeal to whoever I would give it to, particularly compared to something like the Muat note, making it unlikely that I would be offered enough to make it worth giving out. I don't like the generic promissory notes and how they'll likely play for the L1z1x much either.



    Sometimes our strengths lie beneath the surface - far beneath, in some cases - but I'm sure there's more to Ketar than meets the eye!
  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    If you are not happy with your race after adding promissory notes I'd strongly prefer to either redraft or leave them out.

  • KetarKetar Lacks the basic intelligence required for pretty much everythingRegistered User regular
    I'm not terribly happy about it, and I do think it's pretty crappy to add a mechanic after drafting was done. But I'm also itching to play and I'll get over it. And I'll remember who asked to add the promissory notes, neighbor 8-)

    Promissory Notes
    Each player also has a hand of Promissory Notes that can be exchanged in transactions. At most one card per player can be exchanged in a transaction; you may also exchange Promissory Notes that are not yours. There are four generic notes held by each player, and one note that is race-specific.

    Generic Notes
    - Ceasefire: After the <color> player activates a system that contains one or more of your units: The <color> player cannot move units into the active system. Then, return this card to the <color> player.
    - Trade Agreement: When the <color> player replenishes commodities: The <color> player gives you all of his commodities. Then, return this card to the <color> player.
    - Political Secret: When an Agenda is revealed: The <color> player cannot vote, play Action Cards, or use faction abilities until after that Agenda has been resolved. Then, return this card to the <color> player.
    - Support for the Throne: When you receive this card, if you are not the <color> player, you must place it faceup in your play area and gain 1 Victory Point. If you activate a system that contains one or more of the <color> player's units, or if the <color> player is eliminated, lose 1 Victory Point and return this card to the <color> player.

    The Embers of Muaat
    - Racial Promissory Note: Fires of the Gashlai: Action: Remove 1 token from the Muaat player's Fleet pool and return it to his reinforcements. Then, gain your War Sun upgrade technology card. Then, return this card to the Muaat player.

    The L1z1x Mindnet
    - Racial Promissory Note: Cybernetic Enhancements: At the start of your turn: Remove 1 token from the L1x1x player's Strategy pool and return it to his reinforcements. Then, place 1 command token from your reinforcements in your Strategy pool. Then, return this card to the L1z1x player.

    The Winnu
    - Racial Promissory Note: Acquiescence: At the end of the Strategy Phase: Exchange 1 of your Strategy Cards with a Strategy Card that was chosen by the Winnu player. Then, return this card to the Winnu player.

    The Emirates of Hacan
    - Racial Promissory Note: Trade Convoys: Action: Place this card faceup in your play area. While this card is in your play area, you may negotiate transactions with players who are not your neighbor. If you activate a system that contains 1 or more of the Hacan player's units, return this card to the Hacan player.

    The Naalu Collective
    - Racial Promissory Note: Gift of Prescience: At the end of the Strategy Phase: place this card face up in your play area and place the Naalu "0" token on your Strategy Card; you are first in initiative order. The Naalu player cannot use his "Telepathic" faction ability during this game round. Return this card to the Naalu player at the end of the Status Phase.

    Sardakk N'orr
    - Racial Promissory Note: Tekklar Legion: At the start of an Invasion Combat: Apply +1 to the result of each of your units' combat rolls during this combat. If your opponent is the N'orr player, apply -1 to the result of each of his unit's combat rolls during this combat. Then, return this card to the N'orr player.

    All players will now select one Strategy Card in order, starting from the Speaker. MrBody has conditional orders to select the (7) Technology Strategy card, so it is now @discrider 's turn to select.

    I guess. Bleargh. Definitely missing some of the TI3 strategy cards right now.

    Sometimes our strengths lie beneath the surface - far beneath, in some cases - but I'm sure there's more to Ketar than meets the eye!

    Pick Imperial.

    Anything else or should I take my first action?

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    I think that's it. You should be right to take your turn.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Yeah, feel free to start taking actions if you are ready. I'll post a status update tonight regardless of what other progress has been made.

    Activate Starpoint/New Albion. Move in destroyer, carrier, 2 fighters, 3 GF (leaving one on Druaa), 1 PDS. Drop 1 GF on New Albion, 2 GF and 1 PDS on Starpoint.

    T/F/S (hah!)-> 2/3/2

    I don't think PDS cannons can be moved in TI4.
