    I don't think there are any secret objectives that N'orr can claim, so we'll move on to the next part of the phase.

    Reveal Public Objective
    Found a Golden Age (2 VP): Spend 16 resources.
    3 Stage II Objectives remain in the line.

    All players draw Action Cards to hand and command counters for allocation:
    The Barony of Letnev (Ketar): 2 cards; 2 command counters
    The Yssaril Tribes (Lykouragh): 3 cards, followed by 1 discard from hand; 3 command counters
    The Embers of Muaat (El Skid): 1 card; 2 command counter
    Sardakk N'orr (38thDoe): 2 cards; 2 command counters
    The L1z1x Mindnet (Phyphor): 2 cards; 3 command counters
    The Ghosts of Creuss (A Half Eaten Oreo): 2 cards; 3 command counters

    The Action Card deck will be depleted following L1z1x's draws, and so the discards will be shuffled (following Yssaril and L1z1x's discards, the latter due to hand limits) before Creuss will make their draws. (So don't expect your Action Cards right away, A Half Eaten Oreo.) For the interested, there are currently 35 cards in the discard, which includes 6 Rider cards and 2 Sabotages.

    It can't be a good sign that changing my fleet counter to 3 seems pointless.
    +2/+0/+1

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    So what are the win conditions next turn?
    Letnev, Yssaril, and Muaat are all scary with imperial, I'm assuming Yssaril takes it.

  • LykouraghLykouragh Registered User regular
    well I'm going to be at 6 and take Imperial, so I'll need 4 total VP next round
    Letnev are going to be at 8 so just need to take 2 points
    Muaat will need 3 points

    and remember that the rules say whoever goes first in initiative order claims first and first to 10 wins

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular

    Yeah that was the math I was just doing,

    I forgot that speaker does not equal 1st in initiative, so for you to win with Imperial you'd need an Action Phase Secret Objective. Without one you just can't win since you need Imperial to get to 10 and then Letnev/Muaat would score before you. Otherwise Letnev/Muaat are likely to win status phase.

    I think i can technically win action phase if I get Imperial AND conquer MR, but I'm going with no on that one :P

    I believe only @Phyphor is left to make command counter allocations.

    Consider that L1z1x don't have any cruisers on the board, and that there are only 4 PDS units on the entire map outside of their own - and one of those is on the N'orr homeworld, so they'd lose a VP if they were attacking it.

    Neither one is really worth hanging onto for them; it's unlikely either would ever be used. Which makes things a bit less terrifying.

    Just popping in to mention that I'm about to head to the airport for my flights back home, so I'll be out of contact for a while. Start of the Agenda Phase (assuming Phyphor makes his counter allocations) may be slightly delayed.

    Well, it's a fun agenda but I don't know if we're going to see the end of another status phase....

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    I was hoping for a spicy agenda first so my 6 votes would maybe matter for the second. But this is unlikely to trigger.

    Looks like the Yssaril get yet more action cards, unless someone makes a big play for themselves...

    e- agreed, theoretically more action cards.

    We will probably abstain from all votes unless there is a compelling reason to change that stance. Any objection to starting the vote?

    It seems like folks are ready to go. @38thDoe has the first say (though other players can vote if they're committed to a particular stance, as always). As a reminder, here's what's at stake:

    So...my understanding is that nothing in the universe can ever reduce the Yssaril's max hand size. This will be quite the interesting vote!
