I second that, Ryszard. It would be good to return to Pericles at some point but I imagine weíd all welcome a try at a fresh system first. Me and Henry have been pondering and on our short list so far are possibly Pendragon or Churchill...

Thanks to everyone for a fun game, and for sticking with it throughout a long period of time. You don't often see that in a two-player game, much less a four-player game.
Athens managed to keep Sparta bottled up without getting into any pitched land battles. Not always easy to do, but Ryszard is adept at finding the right time and place to pick a fight.
Best wishes to you all in your future gaming endeavors.

Athens, and especially the Demagogue Faction, deserve a Triumphal accolade for having tenaciously raided and harried their Spartan foes. We concede and accept defeat.
As we were playing the Second Peloponnesian War, scenario 14.3, and itís scenario rule 14.34 applies. Athens knows well that under rule 11.11, the Demagogue Faction is about to achieve an automatic victory. Well played. It was an example of a game conducted with much patience, in good spirits and in a fine manner.

I know it has been awhile since we have gone through this process, so I just thought I would remind everyone as to how this should work.
1. Both sides should discuss privately as to how many strategos each player is going to commit to the battle.
2. Once Sparta has decided on their commitment, one of them should enter a "delayed note" that specifies how many strategos each faction will commit.
3. Athens can simply state how many strategos each faction has committed (no delayed note necessary). Athens can now move units based on the strategos commitment.
4. Sparta reveals their "delayed note" to show what their strategos commitment was.
5. Athens can now resolve the battle.

|340||2/8/2019 4:02:00 PM||Turn 2||Agiad||Message||
The reason for the confusion over who follows the Eurypontid Faction is due to the fact that two of the honour markers on the Assembly display are in the wrong place, as can be seen when looking the Honour track. In fact, Ryszard should follow Henry as the track correctly shows the Eurypontid Faction on 14, the Aristocrat on 10 and the Agiad on 9.
When Ryszard does his logfile perhaps he could correct the Honour markers on the Assembly display.

Thanks Brian. My apologies for the delay: Iíve been ill with flu. In logfile 4037 I have allocated the appropriate Strategos to the Eurypontid and Agiad Factions, discarded the cards from my hand, except the leader card, and placed Theatre Issues into my hand. Over to Henry to discard his cards and take his Theatre Issues, when we will be finally ready to go to the Theatre Phase. However, I think Henry is also unwell with flu so he may be delayed. Wishing you well, Henry.
|331||1/23/2019 6:50:00 PM||Turn 2||Demagogue||Message||
Based on your message, I have saved file #4036 to Dropbox. Here is a summary of what I did in the file:
1. Regarding the strategos count, there were 8 strategos set to the side of the Spartan assembly area. Five of those were set aside due to failing Will of the Assembly last turn. The other three were set aside based on using the optional "war weariness" rules, but since Sparta forgot about those rules during their assembly phase, we agreed to ignore them this turn. I simply forgot to pull those 3 strategos out and put them back in the pool. You'll see in the log file that you now have 19 strategos in the pool to fill your hand with.
2. Regarding the Honor points, I misread the rules and thought it was a +3/-3 change for the winner/loser of Oration Honor. I now see that it was only +1/-1, so I adjusted the points on the board to Eurypontid = 14, Agiad = 9.
I think that should resolve the issues you brought up.
It is now back to Sparta to gather up their strategos and issues, and discard any cards in hand. Then we should be ready to go.
|330||1/23/2019 9:25:00 AM||Turn 2||Agiad||Message||
We havenít followed up as weíre somewhat confused by the position of the honour and Strategos markers at the end the Athens 4035 logfile.
Strategos first. When the Spartan factions commenced their Assembly Phase, we had 14 Strategos in the Spartan stock. But we see that in the two most recent Athenian logfiles Sparta has 16 Strategos in stock. We presume that Athens also started its Assembly Phase with 16 Strategos in stock. Our calculation for the Strategos available at the start of Turn 4ís Assembly Phase is based on the following:
26 - 5 (for failing to meet the objective set by the Will of the Assembly last turn) = 21
21 - 2 (as Controlling faction receives 2 Strategos this turn) = 19
19 - 5 (as Strategy Board needs to be filled) = 14 Strategos remaining.
If we are correct, Athens needs to remove 2 Strategos that they have gained. Alternatively, if our calculations are incorrect, each Spartan Faction needs to be awarded one more Strategos each based on the last issue debated during their Assembly Phase.
For the Honour track, Sparta did in fact allow for the Honour points gained and lost during Political Phase. This may not been seen in the logfile text as we discussed the following as part of our Skype conversation:
Agiad Faction gained one Honour and Eurypontid lost one honour for Oration (7.1). But then for 7.2 the Eurypontid Faction gained one honour and the Agiad Faction lost one honour for Favour of the Assembly (the Favour of the Assembly was already on the Eurypontid Factionís side).
Accordingly - for the Political Phase - we think there should no be shift in the Honour track positions for the Spartan factions, as we see it. Eurypontid Faction should on 14, rather than 12, and the Agiad Faction on 9, rather than 11.

|328||1/16/2019 8:47:00 PM||Turn 2||Demagogue||Message||
Athens has completed their Assembly phase.
I placed file #4034 out in Dropbox in the main Pericles folder. If you step through the file, you will see that it starts at the end of the Athenian Assembly phase, and then I update the board with the issues that the Spartan factions won (plus the War/Peace issue in the Spartan center).
Please review to make sure that I didn't overlook any of the issues Sparta has in play.
It looked to me like Sparta didn't do steps 7.1 and 7.2 (Oration Honor and Controlling Faction), so I implemented those steps, making adjustments to the honor track accordingly. Again, please review to make sure you agree.
I then went through the Political Issues segment (7.4). We are still at war. Then I awarded all the remaining issues each faction won.
I have placed my issues into my hand. Ryszard is next to place his issues into his hand.
After that, the Spartan factions will need to discard all cards in their hand, draw the appropriate number of strategos from the pool, and place their issues into their hand. Then we should be ready to get started.
Ryszard, you are up next.
|327||1/10/2019 9:59:00 AM||Turn 2||Demagogue||Message||
Okay, we will proceed with our Assembly phase with an additional 3 strategos available in the pool. I guess some leader we thought were "lost" found their way home.
|326||1/10/2019 2:30:00 AM||Turn 2||Agiad||Message||
Thanks Brian. We had not accounted for the loss of the three Strategos due to "Leadership Loss" (rule 14.43.D) as we agreed to use the "Ravages of War" rules. Since we last played in October, I had forgotten completely about the latter.
As the three Strategos reduction applies to Athens and Sparta, and we have already conducted a 90 minute live session for the Assembly and Political Phases, can we make an exemption to rule 14.43D that applies just for this turn to Sparta and Athens? That way neither city state is treated differently and me and Henry donít have to redo our live session.
|325||1/9/2019 8:45:00 PM||Turn 2||Demagogue||Message||
Brendan and Henry,
I have not looked at your log file because I don't want to gain any intelligence on your issue choices, etc. before we have completed our Assembly phase.
However, I just thought I would point out that the strategos situation at the start of the Boule phase is that both sides had 8 strategos pulled off to the side that are not available during this turn. As Brendan pointed out, 5 strategos were removed from both sides due to failing to achieve the Will of the Assembly goal last turn. Another 3 strategos were removed due to "Leadership Loss" (see 14.43.D) since we agreed to use the "Ravages of War" rules.
Both of the faction leaders received 2 strategos to start with. That left 16 strategos available in the pool (which is what is showing in file #4009).
As Brendan pointed out, another 5 strategos needs to be pulled from the pool to populate the strategy board spaces, leaving only 11 strategos in the pool.
It would probably be a good idea for you to review your log file, to make sure you didn't pull more strategos than are available this turn. There are a total of 26 strategos per side, but since 8 of them were unavailable, only 18 will be in play this turn. If you sum up the Agiad strategos, Eurypontid strategos, and any "unclaimed" strategos, it should sum up to 18.

Sparta has conducted its Assembly and Political Phases and is ready to start the Theatre Phase. We had to restart our Assembly Phase as on first completing it we found that:
a) Sparta and Athens should have their Strategos stock reduced by five for both failing the Will of the Assembly last turn; and,
b) we needed to place five Strategos on the Strategy Board.
We made the corrections, taking into account that both controlling factions start turn 4 Assembly Phase with two Strategos each. We believe we have got it correct but please check.

I'm trying to remember where we were at. Looking at the most recent file (#4008) dated Oct-26-2018, it looks like everyone has drawn their new hand of cards for the upcoming turn, and created their entourage (except for Henry, who used his last turn).
I have created the folders "T4 Athenian Assembly" and "T4 Spartan Assembly", and have placed a copy of the starting file in each folder.
I guess we are ready to get started with the next Boule phase.

It really doesn't matter to me whether we put the game on hold until next year, or just continue playing with the understanding that there will be sporadic periods of inactivity.
I guess it might come down to how often you will be too busy to play between now and the end of the year. If you think there will be frequent periods where you are unavailable, then it probably would be best to just wait until the new year (assuming that your availability will be improved next year).
But if you think there might be just one or two periods where you can't play, then it might be worth continuing the game. All I would ask in this case is that when you are coming up on a period where you know you won't be available, to just post a message here to let everyone know what's going on.
So I guess I'm kicking the decision over to Ryszard as to whether we put the game on hold, or keep playing. I'm fine with it either way.

Iíve not been in contact with Ryszard recently but I think I am right in saying heís going through the last couple of months of his studies and teacher training. I imagine itís probably the most challenging phase of his one-year training programme, with much of his time out of the classroom committed to his studies.
Our current game has developed into a gripping narrative of its own. Given Ryszardís circumstances, one option would - if players are willing - be to put the game into ďhibernationĒ until the New Year. I am willing to do this. I believe Ryszard may by then have completed his teacher training programme.

The only thing I think I could have done is play through file 4005 - forgot to save it --- and then loaded my earlier .sav file and didn't notice. Many apologies
|308||10/15/2018 8:19:00 AM||Turn 2||Demagogue||Message||
Hmmm. This is another one of those cases where things are changing, and I don't know why.
If you load the file #4005 that I created, and step through to the end of it, you'll see that the strategos stock pile is indicating 16 for both Sparta and Athens, and both of the card decks have been shuffled, and there are no cards in the discard pile.
Then open the next file, #4006, that Henry created, and you'll see that the starting board situation shows the stockpile for both Sparta and Athens indicating 12, and there are cards sitting in the discard pile for both Sparta and Athens.
I honestly don't know if there is something weird going on with Henry's computer, or if he is doing something that is causing this, but clearly, something seems to be happening.
Brendan, all I can suggest is that you load file #4005 and step through to the end, then draw your cards again. That means that Henry will have to draw his cards again as well after you have done so, and then Ryszard can draw his.
|307||10/15/2018 7:10:00 AM||Turn 2||Agiad||Message||
Thanks, Brian, for resolving our Strategos stock problem.
After drawing four cards into the Agiad hand, the card deck ran dry and I noticed both sidesí discarded cards hadnít been re-shuffled into their main decks. It means Henry and Brian drew their cards without the possibility of drawing any previously discarded cards while me and Ryszard have increased probability of drawing recently discarded cards. Technically, this isnít consistent with the rules but Iím not sure itíll matter that much. Anyway, I added the Spartan discarded cards, reshuffled and drew five more cards. Over to Ryszard, unless one of you thinks we should redo the card deck reshuffles and draw our cards again.

|300||10/10/2018 9:30:00 AM||Turn 2||Demagogue||Message||
I closed out game turn #3, and started game turn #4.
Both sides failed to meet the conditions of the Will of the Assembly card (control of Boeotia), so both sides were punished by losing 5 honor from each faction, and removing 5 strategos for the upcoming turn.
The next Aristophanes card was "Clouds B", which was a good deal for the controlling factions (Henry and me), because it moved the War/Peace marker to our "1" space, and gave us 2 free strategos right off the bat.
I discarded the entourage cards that I didn't want, but didn't draw a new hand until everyone has discarded their entourage cards. Then we can reshuffle the decks and draw new hands.
Ryszard, please do your turn next. You will need to discard any strategos (if any) that you still have in your hand, then discard the entourage cards that you don't want to keep.
Once Ryszard finishes, then Henry can do the same, and finally, Brendan.

I tried to make a logfile using 3080 and 3081 and then picking up with Diplomatic issue and revealing the next Athenian counter.
It is interesting that when Henry moved the Spartan issue, chat mentioned "Eurypontid moved Athenian issue in Boeotia". There is something funky with this Vassal module... but it is beyond me to know how exactly we can deal with this (designing the module without any automation?)

I'm not sure there is anything that can be done to solve the issue, other than to just let Ryszard implement his missing issue, and play out the rest of the turn.
The issue that went missing is Ryszard's Diplomatic issue. Technically, this issue should have been implemented before the two Rumor issues (one Spartan, one Athenian) that were revealed in Boeotia, but since they were Rumors, it really didn't affect the game results anyway.
So I think Ryszard should implement his Diplomatic issue, and then since the only visible issue is an Athenian issue in Boeotia, he should then go ahead and reveal that issue as well.

I think I am probably best placed (through lack of STRATs) to try and solve the issue. Unfortunately I will not be able to look at it before tomorrow as I am spending today playing Successors face to face :-)

I don't know how this is happening, but we have another case of issue markers getting out of whack. This time, one of Ryszard's issues in Boeotia has gone missing.
If you look at file #3080, you'll see that there is an Athenian issue at the top of the stack in Boeotia. This is one of Ryszard's issues. Even after stepping through this file to the end, this issue is still on top of the Boeotia stack.
Then when you open up file #3081, the top issue on the stack is a Spartan issue. If you look at the number of issues in Boeotia before (#3080) and after (#3081), it changed from 3 Athenian and 3 Spartan, to 2 Athenian and 3 Spartan.
So somehow, Ryszard's issue in Boeotia went missing. Like I said, I have no idea how or why this is happening, but clearly, something strange is going on.
At any rate, I think it is actually Ryszard's turn to reveal an issue, and it really should be the "missing" issue that gets revealed.

Boeotia is the only game in town it seems.
EK MIL no Strats - over to Brian

I do reveal whispering Demagogues in Boeotia (Rumors). It would be over to Brian - but as an Athenian, he will have to pass... It is over to Henry, I believe.

Wow a lot has happened while I have been away!!!

Hopefully they have been transferred
An issue in Chalcidice
A Eurypontid DIP which I cannot use as I have no Strats left
seeing as Brendan is in the wilds of Poland I will reveal an issue for him
He's been spreading rumours in Boetia again - Over to Ryszard

Built a naval unit in Chalcidice, and then revealed another League issue in Thessalia, which was used to build a base.
Over to Henry for the next issue.

Demagogue League issue in Chalcidice has been revealed. Over to Brian for a decision and, then, his reveal.

EK and AK issues picked and one, an Oracle, resolved. The other was just a Rumour marker. Over to Ryszard.

Aristocrat's Rumor revealed in Thessalia.
Henry is up next (or I guess Brendan will reveal for Henry?)
|282||9/23/2018 5:04:00 PM||Turn 2||Aristocrat||Message||
Aristocrats of Ryszard got seized by fear, seeing a military buildup in Aetolia. They bought some help from local pirates or something. Raid in Aetolia caused 4 tokens of loss for Spartan leading sons of Eurypontos. Aristocrats bask in (3 points of) Honor. Because there is some Honor in raiding, absolutely.
Over to Brian.

Thanks Brian. Well spotted. Iíve corrected my logfile by removing the Rumour marker in Sparta and then picking and resolving the issue in Aetolia. Over to Ryszard.

I'm not sure what happened, but that Rumor issue you revealed in Sparta in file #3075 had already been revealed earlier in file #3065.
I checked every file following #3065, and the issue in Sparta magically reappeared in file #3071. I have no idea what Henry might have done to make that issue reappear, but it wasn't there at the end of my file (#3070), and then it is there at the start of Henry's file (#3071).
That being the case, the only issue you could have revealed during your turn is the one in Aetolia.
I will turn it back over to Brendan to reveal and resolve the issue in Aetolia, and then it will be Ryszard's turn to decide whether he still wants to reveal the Diplomatic issue in Boeotia, or do something else.

Diplomacy, instigated by Aristocrats in Boeotia. Stop. Minor shift in favor of Athenians among the local populace. Stop. Need more wine. Stop. Over to Brian.

Battle resolved in Boeotia on behalf of Henry. I then revealed the AK issue. I hope my actions are all correct. Over to Ryszard.

Athens committed zero strategos.
Back to Brendan to resolve.

Spartan Strategos commitment revealed for second battle in Boeotia this turn and forces moved. Over to the Athenians to reveal their Strategos commitment.

I did hear back from Ryszard. He said Tuesdays and Wednesdays are his busiest days, and he is also feeling a bit under the weather.
I have informed Jim of our strategos commitment, so you can proceed with moving troops, etc.

Ryszard has also gone quiet in another game I am playing with him. I had hoped to resolve the Expedition before I went off to the UK but this may not be possible. I am away from 21st to 28th September. It is likely that I will not be able to make a move before week beginning 1 October, However Brendan can take over the Spartan faction while I am away. Jim has the Spartan commitment which can be revealed as soon as Athens have posted their commitment either as a delayed message or to Jim or both.
