268 5/18/2017 9:24:00 AM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message yep good game. I didn't realize we were so close to the end, and i was lucky enough to be able to make a late move.
267 5/17/2017 9:31:00 PM Turn 1 Roman (Steve) Message Good game. That was fun. I pulled the trigger too early and got what I deserved...

265 5/17/2017 8:43:00 PM Turn 1 Aedui (Doug) Message Well, now that Kevin will not let me cheat by marching, my best move is to kill a Roman ally. File uploaded. I think this means Kevin wins. Congrats!

or Frost
263 5/16/2017 9:38:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message Dont think you can March on Frost...

The DR was for Sudden Frost i.e. the round ends immediately, or Sudden Frost (the default) where you play the round but March is not allowed.

248 5/10/2017 12:00:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message OK I fixed the space (since I had no WB I killed the fort)

and then took the event. I think that catches us up and Steve is up, correct?

Again sorry I missed that

log 97 combines the moves and is uploaded

247 5/9/2017 12:03:00 AM Turn 1 Roman (Steve) Message I'm fine with any of these remedies. Pick the one you prefer. We aren't playing for kidneys...
246 5/8/2017 9:11:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message I am not certain that is fair to take away the Fort. I guess that is an options. I'll have to go back and take a look at log 92, was that ally placement the only thing I did?

Steve what is your preference?

Roger


245 5/8/2017 8:07:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message The other option would be to battle the Romans in that area and destroy the fort. Would cost the same.
244 5/8/2017 7:18:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message hi guys!

Sorry for the screw up. I did not see any limitations.

Who is up?

Whomever is up can delete the ally and add a resource. I do not have any WB left to place.

We can just eliminate that one play

243 5/7/2017 10:28:00 AM Turn 1 Roman (Steve) Message Any of those sound fine to me. It doesn't put in the victory area so the strategic ripple is minor...
242 5/7/2017 6:31:00 AM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message i would say just have Roger Rally in that or a different location and bring in WB, or he can battle in that area and remove the Fort maybe. Either would work but i do think we should remove the ally...
241 5/7/2017 6:29:00 AM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message yep i missed that too. i think we should probably rewind or have the Arverni choose an alternate action if we can make it work
240 5/6/2017 10:59:00 PM Turn 1 Roman (Steve) Message I did not pay close attention to an earlier move. Averni move 92 placed an Ally at a Dispersed Gathering marker. This is illegal, no? We don't have to go back, but I would like to make sure we all understand what the rules are...
239 5/6/2017 7:55:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message took event

Aedui up on the next card
234 5/1/2017 7:08:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message it did knock them down...

but that was a nice event for you! and i would have gotten a full action + special
233 5/1/2017 7:03:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message rallied, built an ally (did not do much), so That may take rome out of victory for the time being.

Rallied....

I do not see any limit to the number of spaces that I can rally at..... hopefully I did not miss anything

Just did a command action. Since Kevin is first on next card, I figured it did not matter (I wanted to do a special so he could do more, but none made sense).

File uploaded......
223 4/17/2017 7:31:00 AM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message Hello!

I am assuming we have, but we did flip and get rid if dispersed markers last winter correct?

Unless I am missing something, there is nothing we can do about those markers, correct? Just want to make certain I do not miss a way to get rid of them

So, the only way we can keep rome from enslaving us all is to kill allies?

Peace

Roger
222 4/16/2017 9:21:00 AM Turn 1 Aedui (Doug) Message Took event. Over to Arverni (Roger) for first action on next card.
221 4/13/2017 6:32:00 AM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message Oh! OK thanks Kevin. Sorry I read that wrong.

So because of Ambush there were 6 losses with that move?
220 4/13/2017 12:55:00 AM Turn 1 Roman (Steve) Message Rome scouts and then battles. Roman high water mark. It's all downhill from here...

File uploaded

Aedui up
219 4/12/2017 10:15:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message > No retreat, unless versus Caesar, on 4-6

It reads slightly differently

> No retreat, unless versus Caesar on 4-6

So if you are facing Ceasar and you Ambush, there is one die roll with a 50-50 chance he will nullify the ambush.

you never roll for each attacking unit - you count the losses you inflict then the defender rolls for eligible units that he want to risk to fulfill those losses.

E.g. in a normal battle you inflict 3 losses against 2 Aux, 2 legion, Ceasar

Roman could take the 2 Aux and roll for 1 legion, or start rolling for the legions and hope they soak up multiple casualties. I.e. a legion could roll multiple times, and absorb multiple hits, if they keep rolling. They only get the benefit if Ceasar is in the area.

218 4/12/2017 10:06:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message Without Ambush:

6 WB = 3 losses
1/2 because of Fort = 1.5 loss
Roman have to lose the auxiliary.
If there were more losses, the Fort roll for each loss and surive on 406

With Ambush:

6 WB = 3 losses
The Fort does not 1/2 the losses and the defender cannot retreat
Roman has to lose all 3 pieces, no die roll for the Fort
217 4/12/2017 9:30:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message The VASL card says Ambush procedure:

If more Hidden Arverni than Hidden Defenders......

No retreat, unless versus Caesar, on 4-6, Each loss removes one defender, no counter attack.

So, I assumed roll for each attacker. Otherwise what is the point of Ambushing?

Then halving the losses because of the Fort.

Thoughts?

Peace

Roger


216 4/12/2017 8:25:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message Belgians Rallied

Roamns up first eligible on Baggage Trains
215 4/12/2017 8:21:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message When there is ambush you dont need to roll for losses against Legions or Forts (you never have to roll for losses against Tribes or Auxilia).

So you have 6 WB, they do 3 losses. So all 3 Roman pieces are removed I believe...
214 4/12/2017 7:57:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message Oh, sorry for confusion, I ambushed then battled..... against Rome

I hope everyone is OK with how I handled the last log......
213 4/12/2017 7:48:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message 5.5 losses

so, 2.75 losses

I think that gets the WB and the Tribe

But not 100% certain. I will go with that

I hope I did not screw that all up

-Gave Doug a resource, though why I do not know SMILE

-regretting missing Kevin's move before hand SIGH

- I am not 100% certain how his goes....... do
I roll 6 dice and on a 4-6 elimnate one loss and on a 1-3 it is a half loss? then take off half of those losses for the fort

I will do with that, and see what Rules sensi' Kevin says


210 4/12/2017 7:16:00 PM Turn 1 Roman (Steve) Message They are all in Madubii
209 4/12/2017 7:10:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message you get a limited action and special
208 4/12/2017 7:05:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message hello!

Apologize...... had a fun 4 days of ASL and friendship..... then two nightmare days of work.

Where are we at with the turn?

1. Will give Doug Trade Passage and a buck
2. Do I get a action and special action or just action
3. Steve, where are the Rome WBs as noted by Kevin?

Thanks guys!

Peace

Roger
207 4/8/2017 9:18:00 AM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message check the position of those couple of Roman WB revealed on the border of Mandubii and Sequani. I think they are in Mandubii but must be counting as Seqani as there should be no control there. if you move them away from the border the control adjusts correctly
206 4/8/2017 8:15:00 AM Turn 1 Aedui (Doug) Message Ran away and traded. Roger, if you are so inclined, you can give me trade passage and give me one more dollar. Arverni (Roger) up next for limited + special.
205 4/7/2017 6:18:00 AM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message Hello! A friend will be in town for a weekend of booze and ASL. I will be offline more or less until Monday.
204 4/6/2017 11:35:00 AM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message Belgians will take the event, selecting all Gallic factions.

Aedui first up.
203 4/5/2017 10:14:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message The more the better.... I'd go all in. Maybe leave a couple of WB to cover your allies in areas adjacent to roman areas so he can't scout and battle, but get as many in there as you can. He can't retreat if you ambush and the fort doesn't help. Caesar has a 50-50 shot of nullifying part of the ambush but you can still do a massive amount of damage and if lucky you could wipe them all out... it's a once in a game opportunity!
202 4/5/2017 10:06:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message from both areas?
201 4/5/2017 9:51:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message Rome is in the victory zone and can get another 3 orv4 vp if they clear out Mandubii... I would move everyone in... Arverni wants dead legions and this is a rare opportunity to move and then battle with ambush without the Romans getting first shot in.
200 4/5/2017 9:17:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message Rome still the number one problem?

I was considering moving into Gergovia and Celcitia and then entreating.....

You talking moving everyone in from both areas? Or how many? Or how many to move in?

Doug you have thoughts?

Roger

199 4/5/2017 7:20:00 PM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message Roger, we should have consider you marching everyone to Mandubii, then i can play the event and you can battle the Roman with ambush... could be decisive.

194 3/29/2017 5:57:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message just making certain...... I am awaiting Doug to fix correct (I totally confused as to what the original problem was).
193 3/28/2017 11:10:00 AM Turn 1 Roman (Steve) Message I'm getting the ACTS emails.

Doug did the combat correctly. However, he undid my scouting, but I don't think that was correct. If I read the capability correctly, it says I flip up to 2 WB for each Auxilia I flip. I don't think there is a total limit. Therefore, I think the 4 scouted markers should go back. Thoughts?
192 3/28/2017 10:09:00 AM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message I got this e-mail. Am I to eliminate 4 Aedui armies?

Is that the fix?

Thanks!
191 3/28/2017 9:07:00 AM Turn 1 Belgian (Kevin) Message Belgian battled - Arverni up. Sounds like we might have some cleanup still from the Roman battles though.

Anyone else not getting emails from ACTS ?

177 3/9/2017 5:25:00 PM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message also, just to continue the conversation.

As we speak, Kevin and I are the farthest away from victory?

Again, just want to have a better understanding
176 3/9/2017 7:59:00 AM Turn 1 Arverni (Roger) Message In order to better understand what is going on (ant to prep for the longer game if we play it), I want to make certain I understand what each of us has to do to win.

Roman: Subdued, Dispersed and allied tribes is at 15.
If a non-roman ally is placed on a subdued tribe does if still count for Roman victory?
Is there a way to get rid of Dispersed counters?

Arverni-I have to have at least 9 allies/citadels and have 7 or more off map legions. That is pretty straight forward

Aedui-Have to have more allies and citadels than each other faction. Again straight forward

Belgae-Their allies and citadels plus controlled tribes (regardless of other allies) is 15.

So, we all want to build allies. Rome wants to keep tribes dispersed/subdued. Arverni wants to kill Legions, Aedui just wants to build more allies and finally Belgae wants to take tribes and they do not care about other allies.

Does that sum it up?

One last question (since I am up first on the next card and just reading the event trying to figure out how it all ties together): What is the point on senate uproar?

Sorry for the length of this post. I am re-reading the rules, trying to figure how this all ties together.
