    Sorry, having a hard time with this choice. Will try to decide soon.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    It is quite an important decision for you! I think it'll come down to whether you can stop Yssaril from winning in the action phase.

    speaking of which, if anyone would favor our benificent and action-card oriented administration of this galaxy, i am open to buying supports for the throne

    The yssaril have to hold MR through the first action phase and then either hold their homeworlds or score their last SO during this turn or in the status phase
    Tech lets you trivially take the yssaril homeworlds (both blues, take the extra action immediately, light/wave through their stall ships) or taking MR denies them the required MR imperial VP

    Yeah, but Tech puts me way behind when we score objectives at the end of the round. Muaat would have better initiative no matter what they take.

    And the best choice for initiative is mostly useless otherwise this round.

    Just a reminder that the Yssaril have the "we can stop any attack" law they can use whenever they like, and also a handful of action cards that may or may not hinder you... so there's no "trivial" taking of the Yssaril homeworlds...

    And also, like, why have we decided to throw the game to Letnev? Don't you enjoy my epic comeback story?

    I'm popping that

    And there is no meaningful way that 2 unupgraded dreads can stop 2 letnev dreads, a war sun, some cruisers and some fighters. Now not all of that would be used but realistically it's 100% win chance and the only question is the ground invasion, but bringing the war sun means bombardment is nearly guaranteed and I don't think there are ACs to stop two invasions or a space combat

    The Ghosts just silently glare at the green ships at Mehar Xull and all our precious discarded Action Cards.

    And I somehow totally forgot about the 2 TG on Construction.

    If it's acceptable, would really appreciate it if I could take Construction instead.

    If it's not, that's fine - my fault.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Yep. I'll rule that it's fine to revise your order in this case since nobody else has acted yet.

    Take Construction then.

    Thank you.

    Activate home system launch our phalanx at the battleship. Curse the hp system of civ II.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    I'm gonna need some clarification, if that's a formal order. (Bold your actions if you want to make sure they're counted properly.) When you say "phalanx", do you mean that as just using Space Cannon from your PDS, or do you also mean moving in your Carrier from Vefut II as combat reinforcements, if it gets that far?

  • 38thDoe38thDoe lets never be stupid again wait lets always be stupid foreverRegistered User regular
    Sorry I’m on mobile. And making obscure references to instruction manuals for old games for inscrutable reasons. fire space cannons! Do not move ships



    steam_sig.png
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    N'orr has 1 PDS unit for Space Cannon Offense. +1 die roll from Plasma Scoring.

    Geth roll 2d10t6 for N'orr Space Cannon Offense

    N'orr Space Cannon Offense:
    2d10t6 1 [2d10t6=5, 8]

    1 hit registered, destroying 1 Muaat Destroyer.

    Anything else on your action, @38thDoe?

    And now we see the 24 resource N'orr fleet spring from the ashes of the Muaat... battleship, apparently?

    Tap Quinarra Zohbat Verfut for 8, spend 11 trade goods to Construct 5 Dreadnoughts and transfer 5 infantry between planets if possible.

  • KetarKetar My autocomplete is a tad agressive today.Registered User regular
    Well, we suppose that means we're not going to luck into drawing the SO for having all of your dreadnoughts on the board :P

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    You won't be able to move Infantry, since the Movement and Invasion steps of the Tactical Action come after Production. (See section 78 of the rules reference.) Everything else there looks good (though you keep spelling "Vefut II" as "Verfut").

    Action is on @A Half Eaten Oreo.

    Use “unstable planet” on Mehar Xull.
    Action: Choose 1 hazardous planet. Exhaust that planet and destroy up to 3 infantry on it.

    Any sabotage?
    Then @Ketar

    Up to 3 equaling 3 in this case.
