    I do believe bereg and Lirta were initially occupied by the Naalu or are you postulating that they defended it so poorly they wanted you to have it?

    Bereg and Lirta are now, and have always been, proud members of the Naalu polity. Any so-called "memories" of a brief Jol-Narian occupation are obviously fever dreams brought on by the Naaluvian penchant for overindulgence in psionic recreation! This slander is un-standable-for!

    All players draw 1 Action Card to their hands, I'll send out the draws shortly. As far as the secondary goes, I believe Naalu is the only one who would have any interest in playing on it. Once he decides to play or not, the turn will pass to the Yin.

    Special Effects
    Minister of Peace - Creuss may cancel a fleet's movement into a system containing an enemy fleet, so long as he does not control either fleet. The target system remains activated by the attacker. This ability is discarded after it is used.

    Multiculturalism - Creuss has copied Naalu's racial ability regarding their initiative number for the duration of round 7.

    Jol Nar would like to take this opportunity to remind the Mindnet of the unique terms of our trade agreement. We thank the Mindnet for their continued cooperation.

    As for the other trade proposals -- our Scienticians are working overtime to ram through the paperwork, but are finding it difficult to do so using this outmoded, cumbersome, and above all cheap equipment. Whatever can be done about such a situation?

    You're giving back the top two players (movement 3 cost 10 warsuns!!!) their trade deals along with giving up any hope of catching up with them for a measly one trade good each? Are we still buying Creuss' story that he's a poor underdog waif?

    Good lord man, at least demand an entire turn's worth of trade income from them. They can either delay breaking even for a turn in exchange for guaranteed trade deals, or they can refuse and still make net zero income next turn but with no guarantee they'll have the chance of getting treaties next turn. It's still the better deal for them to pay you off at that price. They can refuse out of principle but you still come out ahead with a 4 TG income to their zero. With the 1 TG deal you're actually coming out a loser within a fraction of a turn.
