    Jol-Nar are one of the best races in the game. But they can be neutered - if the other players in the game can manage to stop obsessing over tech and just don't pick the Technology strategy. Any round in which Tech doesn't get picked, Jol-Nar have nothing of note. If they pick Tech themselves they miss out on their best racial ability and instead only get to use the one that's a less effective version of the L1z1x racial technology.

    Deepest apologies N'orr neighbors, but I don't think this will make much of a difference to you and we'll be out of the system next turn.

    Even ignoring how many tech objectives there are now, many races need a bunch of tech to activate their abilities. And while my ability is more powerful it costs a lot to keep using it, and I had to buy a tech to bring it online too whereas jol nar's is free and nearly as flexible. I had to go sarween -> inheritance (with Y planet) -> dread IIs (or war suns), but jol nar could do gravity drive -> dread IIs, or duranium -> assault cannon -> war suns. Admittedly I can get both dread II & war suns faster than jol nar can, but only by 1 tech and only if I have a Y planet

    Guess you gotta go for the victory...

    First things first, I feel like I’m stretching myself thin and could use some extra oomph. My thanks to our friends the Yssaril for their aid.

    Use Yssaril’s Spy Net promissory note at the start of my turn. Once I choose the card I’ll continue my turn.

    That’s a lot of spoils.

    We regret the need, but we’re going to take and immediately use pretty much the card we needed to find:

    Unexpected Action
    Action: Remove 1 of your command tokens from the game board and return it to your reinforcements.

    Targetting the N’orr home system.

    Any sabotages?

    @A Half Eaten Oreo

    Creuss friends, we were disappointed to see your play to Corner the Market stymied by the L1z1x. We do note that you meet the requirements for Diversify Research. If you are alright with claiming that, or another objective, this round we believe we can use the resources of Abyz and Fria early enough next round to empty the sector and allow you to claim them temporarily. We would ask that the favor be returned by allowing the temporary Letnev possession of Mehar Xull at some point. Does that sound agreeable?

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    We misread the L1Z1X’s intentions and lost brave warriors as a result.

    We are fine with this with a temporary exchange of Abyz-Fria and Mehar Xull.

    38thDoe I totally understand where you're coming from, but offering a down payment in this game is almost always a bad idea. Offer a bounty and pay cash on delivery - you're more likely to get results.

    (Offering advance payment to the warrior people right next to you who can probably score more points taking your territory than actually taking on Muaat just feels like an even worse idea)

    Hmm.

    @Ketar never mind about that deal by the way, circumstances did not work out. I guess we will just welcome the warm embrace of your laser cannon.
