    But yeah, waiting on @Mojo_Jojo to decide whether he'd trade me the 0 token in exchange for the speaker token, as then I may pick Politics.
    Otherwise I'll pick Leadership or some such.

    @MrBody @MrBlarney Are there one or two Beta wormhole tokens on the board?

    Well, I like the idea of Naalu as speaker. It's what would have happened if I had taken Politics, since I couldn't actually make myself speaker again. Remembered that way too late.

    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!

    Not good for it go to N'orr or Mentak either, frankly.

    I think if you hadn't done that and you were saying you weren't going to, barring the Creuss fleet bearing down on a leader, then Tech wouldn't be picked because it could give whoever had picked Imperial between us a good shot at winning this round.

    It seemed like MrBody was going to pick Tech regardless, and then potentially had the action card needed to try to stop you from taking Imperial. If you don't actually have a sabotage.

    I would have stuck with Politics if MrBody wanted me to though. I don't believe I've broken my word in any of our forum games, and I'd prefer not to start now. I'd also not like to lose due to sticking to a poorly thought out offer though, so it was at least worth broaching a change with MrBody.

    Nah, they're single-sided. One alpha and one beta.

    I actually went down to the basement and checked my copy of the game after you posted that :)

    @discrider that's not even close to the value of my note. Especially when you're in the position to use it for a shot at a game win and there's no chance you'd accidentally waste it.

    Eh.
    I figure someone's going to win next round, what with everyone getting 2 VP this round, so you might as well have speaker this round in order to stop it.
    And if not, then I'm in a better position to win.
    But up to you @Mojo_Jojo

    No card play. @MrBlarney to resolve combat. (Don't forget my cruisers get Ambush to start.)

    (Also, conditional order made, and I get a TG from Salvage Operations whether I win or lose this combat.)

    Round 6 - Battle at Lodor

    Start of Space Combat

    Naalu has 6 Hybrid Crystal Fighter IIs and 1 Carrier (carrying 2 Infantry)
    Mentak has 3 Cruiser IIs and 1 Fighter (carrying 1 Infantry)

    Metnak uses racial ability "Ambush" at the start of combat, rolling 1 die for one of their Cruiser IIs.

    Geth roll 1d10t6 for Mentak

    Mentak:
    1d10t6 1 [1d10t6=9]

    chirisigtext.png
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Mentak scores 1 hit, destroying 1 Naalu Fighter II.

    Combat Round 1

    Naalu has 1 Carrier and 5 Hybrid Crystal Fighter IIs (carrying 2 Infantry)
    Mentak has 3 Cruiser IIs and 1 Fighter (carrying 1 Infantry)

    Geth roll 1d10t9+5d10t7 for Naalu
    Geth roll 3d10t6+1d10t9 for Mentak

    Naalu:
    1d10t9+5d10t7 3 [1d10t9=1] [5d10t7=6, 7, 8, 4, 7]
    Mentak:

    I do get a second Ambush roll, @MrBlarney. Not sure if we need to reroll the whole first round depending on the outcome of that roll?

    What will probably happen is, if your second Ambush roll hits, then a fighter will die and you will be hit once less in the first round of combat, as a die is removed from the right hand side of the Naalu's fighter roll.

    Oh, whoops: I misread the ability, even though it's no different than the equivalent TI3e ability. (For some reason, I thought it was 1 die per 2 Destroyers/Cruisers. I blame being dead out of energy last night.)

    If there is a hit on the second roll, then it will be as discrider said: rolls will be taken from left to right, and one fewer hit will be registered by Naalu.

    Geth roll 1d10t6 for Ambush Part 2

    Ambush Part 2:
    1d10t6 1 [1d10t6=10]

    chirisigtext.png
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    The result is a hit. One Naalu Fighter is destroyed, Mentak has 2 hits to assign, and plays Action Card "Shields Holding" to cancel them:

    Shields Holding
    Before you assign hits to your ships during a space combat: Cancel up to 2 hits.

    Any responses, @Mojo_Jojo?

    Combat Round 2

    Naalu has 1 Carrier and 4 Hybrid Crystal Fighter IIs (carrying 2 Infantry)
    Mentak has 2 Cruiser IIs (carrying 1 Infantry)

    Geth roll 1d10t9+4d10t7 for Naalu
    Geth roll 2d10t6 for Mentak

    Naalu:
    1d10t9+4d10t7 2 [1d10t9=7] [4d10t7=8, 10, 4, 6]
    Mentak:
    2d10t6 2 [2d10t6=6, 10]

    chirisigtext.png
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    2 hits registered on both sides. Mentak loses 2 Cruiser IIs and Naalu loses 2 Hybrid Crystal Fighter IIs; combat resolves in favor of Naalu.
