    Man, forgot about being objective-blocked when even one planet in a home system is occupied. With how tight the VP race is getting I feel like this ill-advised transfer of the ceasefire might have cost me my chance. Oh well.

    @jakobagger, prior to counter allocations, your totals were TP/FP/SP: 2/3/1, not 3/3/0. The end result can still be 3/4/2, if that's the allocation you want.

    I also noticed that the maps did not include the Trade Goods from "Production Biomes", though they were accounted for in the text summary. The maps have been revised.

    EDIT: I also apparently retreated the Hacan ships to the wrong system on the map; they're now correctly depicted in Qucen'n-Rarron.

    Naalu has discarded "Intercept" and "Tactical Bombardment" to comply with hand limits:
    Intercept
    After your opponent declares a retreat during a space combat: Your opponent cannot retreat during this round of space combat.

    Tactical Bombardment
    Action: Choose 1 system that contains 1 or more of your units that have Bombardment. Exhaust each planet controlled by other players in that system.

    Hacan has discarded "Repeal Law" to comply with hand limits:
    Repeal Law
    Action: Discard 1 law from play.

    @Lykouragh, @Ketar, and @Phyphor to allocate their command counters.

    I was thinking the exact opposite: letting Hacan move through my ships to attack you and force a response to discard his support for the throne.

    Short of handing the leaders victory OR GIVING IT TO ME, I don't care a lick about this agenda.

    Nah. Giving it to myself would just paint a target on me.

    We should probably give it to someone Muaat can't reach in 1 turn. Giving it to L1z1x is just handing the VP and the game to him.

    There's a VP at stakes here. I think that means I need to ask for Sabotage calls. EDIT: For either Lykouragh or Phyphor's cards.

    For reference it's 2.9 that says @Lykouragh 's card will be wasted due to being played fiest in the order

    Right. Basically, if Phyphor's card doesn't get Sabotaged, then a new Agenda gets drawn and, if it's not an Elect Player-type Agenda, then there is no way for Imperial Rider to be triggered. Whatever the state of the Agenda, Lykouragh will not vote. But if someone decides to Sabotage Lykouragh's card, then Lykouragh will get their voting potential back for the new first Agenda. Normally, you'd have to resolve Sabotage plays on Lykouragh's card first before Phyphor's, but this being an online environment, there's some necessary flexibility with the timing.

    EDIT: Struck out inaccurate text based on further discussions.

    @MrBlarney I would expect @Lykouragh to be able to vote on the replacement Agenda, just not this Agenda.
    And to not receive a VP on the replacement Agenda in any circumstance.

    Ah, I see what you're saying, and I agree with you now. Since the text on the card refers to "this agenda", if the "Shard of the Throne" gets vetoed, then the next agenda is no longer "this agenda". So Lykouragh will have standard voting rights in the replacement agenda. Of course, if the veto is sabotaged, then the "Imperial Rider" effects stay in play.

    chirisigtext.png
  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Yeah.
    If Phyphor had been the speaker though, I would have expected Lykouragh to be able to choose whether he wanted to play the rider on the new Agenda
