466 12/9/2018 1:51:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message 6 cities besides Roma which gets 2 CU for a total of 8. 1 each to Sutrium and Narnia. 6 into Roma.
465 12/9/2018 1:37:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message NP power CU's placed and now i'm placing mine.
464 12/8/2018 9:29:00 AM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Place them in Carthago. Hope to hear more good news from you this week!
463 12/7/2018 11:01:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message i can place for Volsci and T-Gauls since they are auto in one spot only. but you need to tell me where you want to place Carthage and i iwll do it in my log. lowest VP always gets to decide for NP's unless its on the verboten list of NPs that can never be controlled by certain powers.

will place once you tell me where for Carthage.

THis is our 2nd. It's been an insanely tough pregancy for my wife and with a little 3 year old at home was made even tougher. very glad for it to be over as well as to get to finally have our son out with us
462 12/7/2018 9:23:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message I did not place the neutral power reinforcements - please add them to your file.
And congrats on the good news. Is this your first child?
461 12/7/2018 8:40:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message Jonathan,

That is excellent news indeed! Thank you for sharing and best wishes to all involved!
460 12/7/2018 6:21:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message will do.

I just got the best news!! The cardiologist just finished seeing my wife about her extremely low BP and doesnít want to wait any longer so they got her scheduled for delivery for 12/10, Monday.

I will make my reinforcement this weekend but i won't be doing any PBEM from Monday through to probably Thursday next week.

Randy, did you also handle the NP power forces?
459 12/7/2018 5:22:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Rome up to place reinforcements.
458 12/4/2018 7:51:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message Well since the E/S -Rome love feast continues we'll have Rome place reinforcements first.
457 12/3/2018 7:05:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Both the Etruscans and the Samnites are pleased to continue alliances with Rome.
456 12/3/2018 2:00:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message 3 way tie for first place.

on to end/renew alliances and there is only one that is up which is E/S with Rome. I propose that we continue the alliance. Up to Randy to accept or reject and then we move to reinforcements which will be NP powers first. T-Gauls and Volscii have no choice so those can just be placed but Randy gets to choose the troop placement for Carthage.

Randy please make decision on my continuation offer and then make a log of non-player reinforcements. then to Ken/Gauls to determine the order for placing reinforcements for everyone but Randy by virtue of the tie-breaker he wins.
455 12/3/2018 1:53:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Adjust Victory Points Roman: from 6 to 7
Greek: from 8 to 7
Etruscan-Samnite: from 5 to 5
Gaul: from 7 to 7
454 12/3/2018 1:52:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message no isolation for anyone.

Rome gains 1 VP for controlling Neapolis and Greeks lose 1 for teh same reason.

going to adjust VP in ACTS to match log update and then go to propose/renew alliance.
453 12/3/2018 1:44:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message Carthage raises siege level +2 to 2. 1 short of capitulation.

452 12/2/2018 5:04:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message No sir. I need to finish up end of turn log with Carthage siege result added and adjust vp and check isolation
451 12/2/2018 3:20:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message I'm not sure of what we might be waiting on now? Am I the hold up?
450 11/28/2018 6:20:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message I am away from my computer now but I believe that is good enough for two siege points and importantly, Carthage doesnít lose any CU which would have brought it below threshold for more sieges

Message from Roman:

447 11/28/2018 6:19:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Thereís a small clause at end of paragraph that says it is not required. It comes after listing that player powers go last. Might just apply to players and not NP but wasnít sure. Figured the answer would be yes from you. I will Roll them
446 11/28/2018 6:02:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message I don't think there is a decision here. Surrender segment happens regardless. Roll 'em.
445 11/28/2018 5:57:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Finally Neapolis falls. the enemy CU are eliminated and none are lost for Rome.

439 11/23/2018 10:25:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message Thanks. I would normally have it done by now, itís been several days which is too long but we just got back from
Thanksgiving trip. Thanks all for your patience
438 11/23/2018 9:46:00 AM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Of course. No rush, just a friendly reminder.
437 11/23/2018 9:44:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message I shall take care of it shortly. thanksgiving week was quite a busy affair with travel to relatives and food prep.
436 11/23/2018 9:38:00 AM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Rome bravely volunteered to do end of turn.
435 11/17/2018 2:14:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message No desperation here. On to the end of turn.
434 11/16/2018 9:58:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message None for me. To randy for possible DT and then we do end of turn sequence. I can do it for everyone since I have s siege roll to do during siege/subjugation segment or someone else can volunteer
433 11/16/2018 7:29:00 AM 361-348 BC Gaul Message No D/T for me...thanks
432 11/16/2018 2:58:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message Ok, i fixed the Carthage landing force and put them in Messana which is now under siege.

It's actually Ken/Gauls up now to determine if they will play a Desperate Times as they are higher on VP track. Then me and lastly, Randy.

to Ken to decide on DT.
431 11/16/2018 2:54:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message i would undo that card play Roger. I am making a log of the revised landing.
430 11/13/2018 10:00:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Message ok, I confirmed that I can not draw out another event, so I will not play the DT and pass the option.

I also clarified that Carthage is not allowed in Italy, so I suggest we move his seige to Messana.

Rome up.
429 11/13/2018 4:49:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message You can only draw a specific card in the case of your factioní Special card. You already did that. You could use your DT to draw new hand but that would use up your DT move and you would be done which is pointless waste since you are drawing fresh at start of next turn. So your option is to play DT for a 3 OP move and that is it or retrieve it and pass down the line
428 11/13/2018 3:43:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Message cant remember how to draw a specific card,

will draw and play Diekplus and cancel seige at Neapolis.
427 11/13/2018 3:41:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Play Desperate Times card Use to discard and replenish hand
426 11/13/2018 3:37:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message That means the Greeks/Roger are first up to play DT and i believe he sent an email outside of ACTS saying he woudl play one. remember Roger, you played DT previously for Magna Grecia effect and that card will need to be "played for event" and a replacement drawn when it eventually reaches your hand.
425 11/13/2018 3:35:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message it always goes in descending VP order with tie breakers per rules. once you pass at yoru chance you don't get another chance to play DT until next game turn.
424 11/12/2018 8:31:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message Not me
423 11/12/2018 5:57:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Desperate Times, anyone?

416 11/3/2018 10:05:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message I would allow 36 hours for reaction. I have nothing I think only player who would have a card that would affect you would be Randy.

Donít forget to adjust your VP track on ACTS also
415 11/3/2018 9:44:00 AM 361-348 BC Gaul Message 24 to 6...I wipe the bastards out saving all of Gauldendum from certain doom. Statues are erected in my honor

I take two plunders which gain me a VP. If you have a card and want to play it to stop or modify that action please do so and revise the file.

405 10/28/2018 2:57:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message you can go back to the first log AR1 of this turn, also notice that we have kept the Greek marker on each AR to show that you were first player in the round. Please let me know if you want to change your move now that you won't get another move this game turn without burning your last 'Desperate Times' card.
404 10/28/2018 2:55:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Message Randy should be back in a couple days.

Message from Greek:
ok so I will play a card to give the Greeks +2.

Roman 9CU vs Greek 10CU is no force modifier.
Rome Leader(4) vs Greek Leader(1) = +3Rome
-2 Greek Card
-1 Greek friendly space.

So I think it is just a roll off, top 3 Rome vs. Bottom 3 Greek.


Rome will be top 3 die, Greeks bottom 3
