    38thDoe, can I verify your choice of technology selections? I see you've selected Dreadnought II, rather than Exotrireme II, and just wanted to make sure this is what you wanted.

    I don't think they even can select Dreadnought II - it would have to be Exotrireme II since Exotrireme I replaces Dreadnought on the N'orr Card and it just has the Blue-Blue_Yellow upgrade on the side of it.

    https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/twilight-imperium-4/images/a/a0/Sardakk1.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20180416000724

    Exotrireme I is also listed as "N'orr Dreadnought", so the standard Dreadnought II could be used as a valid upgrade. In addition, it's been clarified (in section 79 of the rules reference) that Nekro can copy racial unit upgrades (but not base racial units) even though they only start with standard units, so I think it makes sense to carry the upgrade validity the other way. In any case, this is more of a curiosity than anything, as there's not much reason to not take a racial unit upgrade - and a way for me to get some additional time to put the status update together...

    Round 5: Start of Strategy Phase

    First Agenda
    The top card of the Agenda deck is drawn: "Minister of Peace".
    Vote results: 19 votes - Yssaril (Muaat, Yssaril), 17 votes - Letnev (Letnev)
    Letnev plays Action Card "Bribery" (AC 7 --> 6), but is countered by Muaat's Sabotage play. (Muaat TG 5 --> 4)
    Yssaril performs a transaction, giving 2 Trade Goods and promissory note "Ceasefire" to Muaat. (Yssaril TG 2 --> 0; Muaat TG 0 --> 2)
    Yssaril is elected, claiming the card.
    Creuss performs a transaction, giving 1 Commodity to Yssaril. (C 2 --> 1; Yssaril TG 0 --> 1)
    Second Agenda
    The top card of the Agenda deck is drawn: "Ixthian Artifact".
    Letnev plays Action Card "Imperial Rider" (AC 6 --> 5), predicting an outcome of AGAINST.
    Yssaril plays Action Card "Trade Rider" (AC 9 --> 8), predicting an outcome of FOR.
    Vote results: 22 votes - FOR (Muaat, N'orr, L1z1x, Creuss)
    The result of the die roll grants each player the ability to research two technologies:
    Letnev researches Dreadnought II and racial technology Non-Euclidean Shielding.
    Muaat researches Destroyer II and Assault Cannon.
    Yssaril researches Gravity Drive and Carrier II.
    N'orr researches Gravity Drive and Exotrireme II.
    L1z1x exhausts Resculon (2R) and racial technology Inheritance Systems to research Light/Wave Deflector and Gravity Drive.
    Creuss researches Infantry II and Carrier II.

    That level 2 obejctive put a damper in our dreams of winning, but I still think I need to take imperial if we don't want the game to end this turn.
    Take Imperial

    @Ketar

  • KetarKetar Ready to feel better about your own miserable lives?Registered User regular
    We did want Imperial, but it would have been absurd to try to hold you to not taking it. And this also takes away the possibility of it getting to Muaat through an action card, so hey.

    All home systems except Cruess have ships in them though so I don't see how that helps? That tech just lets you go through fleets without stopping right?

    Oh right, you can't fight your neighbors but you can warp through them with your pass through fleet tech. War Suns aren't so tough.
    Womp Rats are about that size.

    MR is available guys! People with lightwave deflectors should be able to get in there and score some big points!

    Also, on the exotrireme thing... the only thing I can think of is maybe you'd want to take BOTH of the upgrades in order to fulfill a "own x unit upgrade tecnologies" in some rare case where you can't afford any other? I think that should be legal, if very rarely applicable.

    Someone literally needs to walk in there with one groudforce and the technology it takes them to land it, at least as things stand now. And the Yssaril winning the Minister of Peace means that they have some chance of denying Letnev from taking it back. It's not really that complicated, and making it seem like an imposition to take the 6 influence planet away from the current leader while there is a 2 VP influence spend on the board is a bit confusing to us.

    The one that holds my ceasefire and has a much bigger fleet than me, all concentrated beside me in such a way as to leave MR open? Nah, not really. My job is to hold their attention while others do the dirty work!

    Okay, well Letnev also holds the Ghost's ceasefire, Yssaril can't go through you and I can't reach there with anything bigger than 1 dread and Norr has one carrier

    Someone literally needs to walk in there with one groudforce and the technology it takes them to land it, at least as things stand now. And the Yssaril winning the Minister of Peace means that they have some chance of denying Letnev from taking it back. It's not really that complicated, and making it seem like an imposition to take the 6 influence planet away from the current leader while there is a 2 VP influence spend on the board is a bit confusing to us.

    MR was open all of last round, and I even corrected your error in thinking that the ceasefire would allow me to stop you from taking it. It would have been supremely easy for you to take MR from me. It still is.

    You want someone else to do it though. Just like you wanted others to handle the Minister of Peace Agenda. It seems a bit of a pattern, talking about how important it is for others to do something that you could do yourself. Maybe the other players have their own plans as well? Nah.

    Yeah, I definitely could have taken it last round. And even scored Imperial off of it probably. Oh well!

    We have prepared a press statement from our new printing press we invented. Its pretty cool it has these movable plates... oh you already know about that? Well excuse us...

    Anyways. I know for years people have pinned all their hopes and dreams on the Sardakk N'orr fleet coming to save them. Well its time to face the facts. We don't have a fleet. We destroyed all of our fleets so we could invent the printing press, the wheel, and fire. And we are pretty happy. Yes there is a carrier that went rogue. We plan to destroy it. As soon as it floats over here.
    *shakes fist*

    I lost my train of thought. What was I saying? Oh yes,

    Don't Count on the Sardakk N'orr stopping so and so or whoever from colonizing the capital or bashing up the winner. Those sounds suspiciously like things that people with fleets do and as you know that's not us.

    Again, don't count on us to keep you from losing.

    Let us know if you want us to make you a print though.

    Let's make it clear that we're not going to try for the 2 point influence objective.

    Play Leadership. Exhaust MR, Arinam, Meer and Mehar Xull for 5 additional tokens. +3/3/2 for 4/5/3.

    @El Skid @Lykouragh @38thDoe @Phyphor @A Half Eaten Oreo for secondary.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    But your one unescorted carrier was the lynchpin of our plan!

    Play leadership secondary, tapping Shalloq, DB, and Mellon for 6I, T/F/S->3/4/2

    I hope the expansion lets you transport other people's units. Just run a taxi service over here. Fares would have to be steep to make up for command counters and such expenses. Maybe we could offer you some kind of carapace?

    We seem to have no influence planets somehow. Pass secondary.

    38thDoe on

    Not that I can see. Gen Con this year would be exactly 2 years since 4e came out though, so maybe then?

  • LykouraghLykouragh Registered User regular
    @38thDoe let me see my action card draws this turn and then maybe I'd be willing to sell you my racial promissory if I get anything that could help you.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Exhaust Saudor(2I) and Thibah(1I) for 1 Strategic Token.
    T/F/S -> 3/2/2


  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    I will also say that 7 fleet capacity is a scary number.

  • El SkidEl Skid The frozen white northRegistered User regular
    Play on leadership secondary

    Exhaust Rarron (3I), Lirta IV (3I), Quccen’n(2R), Tar’Mann(1R) for 1 of each token

    S/F/T -> 2/5/2
