    The Imperial strategy rules say to score POs as per the text on the PO card. Does this mean it ignores the home system rule as that is not on the PO card?

    @Ketar If you've got conditional orders and are comfortable with setting them, then I'll be happy to execute them to the best of my abilities. Otherwise, enjoy the convention and we'll get your actions when you get back.

    @discrider No, the home system requirement is native to Public Objectives as under section 52.16 of the rules reference, and nothing in section 40 (Imperial) explicitly overturns this. There also appears to be some community consensus that this is a valid interpretation, based on the similar Bureaucracy Strategy Card from TI3e's Shattered Empire expansion (BGG ref).

    @MrBlarney , my interpretation would be that the below explicitly overturns this:

    40.2 To resolve the primary ability on the “Imperial” strategy card,
    the active player can score one public objective of his choice if
    he meets that objective’s requirements as described on its card
    .

    There would be no reason to note this clause otherwise; it could just say 'the active player may immediately score one public objective' as per the short description.


    ... That is, I have no idea what ancillary requirements may be overridden by the Imperial card aside the home system rule.

    Steam Community page: http://steamcommunity.com/id/discrider/
    Oh hey! A knife!
  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Actually, question recinded.
    The rules specify a requirements section and phase section on the card.
    So the above should read:
    he meets that objective’s requirements, but not phase, as described on its card.

    It also gets daft, because ignoring the PO rules implies Imperial could lead to a double scoring of a PO.

    Steam Community page: http://steamcommunity.com/id/discrider/
    Oh hey! A knife!
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Yeah. The main thing that the Imperial Strategy Card overrides is the fact that Public Objectives normally can only be completed during the Status Phase. Nothing else about the scoring rules changes, including home planet control requirements.

    @MrBody I still believe you need to rework your secondary play and either decrease the planets exhausted or increase CCs gained.

    And I still need to think what I'm doing.

    Good catch. I was thrown off because the order said "refresh planets" and the only N'orr system that had two exhausted planets was the home system, with Tren'lak and Quinarra. If the Mellon-Zohbat system was targeted instead, then only Zohbat gets refreshed. @MrBody, you'll need to clarify your orders in accordance with the updated game status info, as your orders still imply exhaustion of 9 Influence worth of planets. It will also be your action.

    EDIT: I also made an error in recording exhausted planets on the map for L1z1x, where Arnor was marked as exhausted instead of Sakulag. Since Arnor and Sakulag each have the same resource and influence values, substituting Sakulag with Arnor squares up L1z1x's Leadership play.

    C/TG/AC: 0/4/5

    After this, MrBody played Diplomacy and refreshed the Mellon/ Zohbat system. Only Mellon, Zohbat, Maaluuk and Torkan are available for Leadership secondary.

    Still leaves 8 Influence for potential spending on Leadership so clarification is still needed. I'll update the status posts and maps with corrections tonight.

    Alright, all corrections made, I think. N'orr has four unexhausted planets at the start of the Leadership action (Maaluuk (0R, 2I), Mellon (Cultural, 0R, 2I), Torkan (Cultural, 0R, 3I), Zohbat (Hazardous, 3R, 1I)) and 4 Trade Goods. So I think we're ready to go back to MrBody for N'orr's play on the Leadership secondary, and their action?

    Spend 1 TG and exhaust the 8I to get 3 tokens.

    T/F/S = 2/4/1

    It is your turn to act, @MrBody.

    Actually, can I undo that last order since nothing has happened? I do not wish to use the leadership secondary at all.

    I'll allow it. Just your action, then.

    I'm not sure that is even possible, but if it is I'd need a lot for it. Just the fact of the Winnu's huge fleets would be enough for me to value it highly, but further than that Winnu has my ceasefire and I really don't want my neighbour to have that first strike capability against me.

    Action: exhaust prodction biomes and spend a SC (2>1) to gain 4TG and give 2TG to L1Z1X

    Promissory notes that are in hand can be traded, even if they are not your own. (Shards of the Throne obtained from another player are not in hand, as they are revealed face up, and so cannot be traded.)

    Action is on @Phyphor.

    So, after playing in a 10 hour TI4 tournament/game today: you can trade a Ceasefire if you want to. The only ones you can't are cards that go down face-up immediately, like Support For the Throne.

    So...
    You played one game then?
    :P

    Seriously though, the other PbP game has used this to trade a card as a surety.
    So Player 1 trades his card to Player 2, and then when Player 1 makes the agreed future action, Player 2 trades the card back again.

    :pop:

    Indeed!

    One game that went about 9.5 hours in real time. 8.5 or so when you subtract breaks. The final round took close to 1.5 hours after I jumped from 4 VP to 9 in a single round, and the tourney organizer stirred everyone up against me. I had a perfect fucking storm of cards come up in the agenda round that allowed him to win by hitting 10 the same round end, but with a lower initiative strategy card. Pretty amazing game though that went right down to the wire.

    Then i drank my sorrows away in the company of forumers and sang some embarrassing karaoke, and now I hope for sleep and not death.

    That surprises me; this edition seems more streamlined.
    But I guess not that streamlined.

    Everyone in our game had played TI before. 3 had played TI4, and I was least experienced at that level. The other 3 were TI3 vets of varying levels. Initial explanations and set-up took a little under an hour.

    We took 1-1.5 hours worth of breaks. Some amount of random stoppage to be nice witb people walking by at the convention who stopped to ask about the game.

    The last couple rounds were absurdly slow. Yssaril were involved as well as someone spending 18 influence on tactics tokens (+3 for playing leadership) to try to out-stall Yssaril.

    Oh, I see.

    Like I said though, it would take a lot to make it worth it to me @discrider.

    PS. playing a long-ass game like TI in a con setting sounds kind of stressful to me, but congrats on almost winning. 5 VP in one turn would definitely have made me aggressively target you with or without someone agitating against you, that is pretty scary.

    @jakobagger it would depend on what 'a lot' means to you.
