    Alrighty, I'm back. The map for the start of the Strategy Phase (before exhausting planets) has been put up.

    Think I'm going first, so here's my move.

    Activate Starpoint/New Albion, moving in 2 carriers, 6 fighters, and 3 GF from the home system (leaving 1 GF on each planet). Land 2 GF on Starpoint and 1 on New Albion. Spend 2 TG plus Sarween to construct 2 fighters, 2 GF, and a destroyer on Starpoint. T/F/S->1/4/1

    I like how, despite all the exhausted planets, no-one picked Diplomacy.

    I think diplomacy is the situation where everybody wants another person to pick it because restoring two planets is usually better than restoring one system's worth

    Make us the speaker and we won't have to use that law we were given to take your strategy card choice and give you Diplomacy or Imperial.

    We kid, we kid. Ha! Ha! Ha!

    Maybe.

  • KetarKetar My autocomplete is a tad agressive today.Registered User regular
    @discrider Would you be willing to wait until your second turn to play Technology?

  • LykouraghLykouragh Registered User regular
    Actually I probably should have waited and given Ketar the chance to use his law right?

    Nah. I picked second, and am fine with what I got.

    Also, in the interests of maintained peace with the Muaat I would have at least discussed things during strategy selection to try to work out something mutually agreeable if I was thinking of doing that.

    I'm not sure, @Ketar
    I may need to Tech before I move, and I have rather limited time to give the game today & tomorrow. ...That would give you 4 actions potentially before Tech ...

    @discrider The issue for me is that I need to play Leadership before you play Tech since I didn't give myself a strat token. Having to play it now gives me much less freedom for shenanigans outside of my established space. If you can wait the one turn I can absolutely guarantee that none of my actions will be used to enter your space or space near Mecatol Rex you may wish to enter.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    @Ketar Really I just need to figure out my own turn :P

    Activate Quann. Move in carrier, 1 cruiser, fighter and 1 infantry from Fria.

    @jakobagger to respond

  • jakobaggerjakobagger LO THY DREAD EMPIRE CHAOS IS RESTORED Registered User regular
    At this point I have no other response than 'screw you' but you may expect further reactions to this unfounded act of aggression in future.

  • KetarKetar My autocomplete is a tad agressive today.Registered User regular
    Fair enough!

    @MrBlarney to roll combat. I have Cruiser II affecting the cruiser roll. Invade with the infantry after space combat.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Round 5 - L1z1x movement into Quann

    Space Combat Round 1

    L1z1x has 1 Cruiser II, 1 Carrier, 1 Fighter (and 1 Infantry).
    Hacan has 1 Carrier.

    Geth roll 1d10t6+1d10t9+1d10t9 for L1z1x
    Geth roll 1d10t9 for Hacan

    L1z1x:
    1d10t6+1d10t9+1d10t9 2 [1d10t6=8] [1d10t9=3] [1d10t9=10]
    Hacan:
    1d10t9 0 [1d10t9=5]

    chirisigtext.png
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    L1z1x scores 2 hits, destroying the Hacan carrier. Combat resolves in favor of L1z1x.

    1 Infantry is landed on Quann. @Ketar to decide whether to take a second action using Fleet Logistics or not.

    chirisigtext.png
  • KetarKetar My autocomplete is a tad agressive today.Registered User regular
    Activate Hacan. Move in cruiser and 1 infantry from Abyz. Invade Arretze.

    Jesus, that's right you can make two moves at a time. Well I don't have any clever traps here either, sad to say.

    Invade Arretze. Assimilate space dock. Produce 4 infantry for 1 TG with Sarween Tools.

    Man, assimilation is crazy good. Especially the part where I can't even retake my own space dock, best case scenario it still gets destroyed.

    So....serious question @jakobagger. If I boot him off of that planet for you, can I have it until end of round for the VP? You could stop me 100% with ceasefire and I won't do it without your consent.

  • jakobaggerjakobagger LO THY DREAD EMPIRE CHAOS IS RESTORED Registered User regular
    I think the ceasefire actually takes effect automatically?

    But either way, I think I can re-take the planets myself, and you're at enough points that I'm not very comfortable with giving you another one without getting a lot in return.

    Plus, I very much want to be able to use the system again as soon as possible, so adding another round of waiting time is real unattractive.

    bgg / steam / goodreads / Bnet: Bygasto#2537
  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Also worth noting that you can't claim public objectives unless you hold your entire set of home planets

    Ceasefire is optional AFAIK like all non-throne notes, but technically it does require units to be present and doesn't stop activation of an empty system

    Okay just trying to help! ;)

  • jakobaggerjakobagger LO THY DREAD EMPIRE CHAOS IS RESTORED Registered User regular
    Good point about me losing the ability to claim my own objectives, that's an extra hard pass then.

    This only applies to public objectives IIRC.
    Secret Objectives can still be claimed, and possibly Imperial points (can't remember).

    If I invade peoples' home systems, does that mean they'll go on to hand me agendas too after I vote for myself?

    Also, still not keytar, no matter how many times you try it.
