292 7/29/2018 10:15:00 PM 373-362 BC Roman Message while I check on those 2 questions, Roger/Greeks, please roll for attrition for your Greek forces in Fregellae and then decide if you are rolling to subjugate which might give you back the extra VP you lost in Caralis.

once all this is done, we can proceed to the end/renewing of alliances as we will then know the state of things. *spoiler alert, the Greeks will probably add to their lead*
291 7/29/2018 10:14:00 PM 373-362 BC Roman Message i need to check on what happens with Gauls on the raided space. the same issue has come up with a city the Gauls looted at last AR before end of turn (turns it into level 1 indy city) and we are wondering if Gauls get to make a subjugation roll on the city...same question could be made if they get to auto control a non-city PC space that is independent from raid.
290 7/29/2018 10:12:00 PM 373-362 BC Roman Message also, the Greeks do have to roll for attrition as they are in a hostile Samnite space at end of turn. they roll for attrition and then in subjugation phase, if they so choose, they get to make 1 free roll of 2D6 on siege/subjugation table.

289 7/29/2018 10:08:00 PM 373-362 BC Roman Message i did not gain any points. i have my same usual 7 VP spaces.

i would encourage the Gauls and E/S to use their neutral power activation cards to bolster the ranks of the Carthaginians rather than the Volsci considering the Romans have not gained a single VP and the Greeks have. just a humble suggestion.

lastly, yes the Gauls have to roll for attrition still in Reate for the independent space.
288 7/29/2018 9:02:00 PM 373-362 BC Gaul Message I ran it all the way through end/renew alliances. We should let that play out over the new 48 hours?

Looks like Rome gained a point

265 7/16/2018 2:00:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message almost forgot. using the 1 support that Carthage got from the 2 dead Greek CU's to place a PC in Himera.
264 7/16/2018 1:45:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message 13 Carthage roll
10 Greek Roll

Carthage also had a major DRM advantage.

The loss tally is:
5 and 6 each score 2 hits for Carthage but there is only 2 Greek CU so the max casualties is capped at 2 (1 support awarded to Carthage to place or remove)

With only 2 CU, the Greeks are only scoring hits on 5's and 6's but it doesn't matter since they rolled no 4's. The 5 scores 1 hit.

Greeks lose 2 CU, force eliminated and leader displaced to box.

Carthage loses 1 CU, now down to 7 and they complete the landing in Caralis.

i will no go to Rome's move.

+1 Battle in friendly space-Greek

Total is +8 for the Carthaginians
261 7/16/2018 1:28:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message sounds good. I will go ahead and roll it. Let's see if old-fashioned Greek martial prowess can carry the day against the weight of Carthaginian arms.
260 7/16/2018 1:20:00 AM 373-362 BC Greek Message I wont avoid, you never know I could get lucky and wipe em out.

You may roll for me in battle to speed things up.
259 7/16/2018 12:59:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message ok Roger I found it in the rules and i remember the follow up question i asked. You can attempt to "avoid combat" in Caralis if you so desire.

"The Greeks can attempt to avoid battle with up to 3 CU by playing
any 3 value card. They can avoid battle with up to 6 CU if
the force avoids battle to Syracusae."

you roll the die and if you hit 1 and 1 only your leader can evac. but you will have to play a 3 OP card to do so. the question i asked awhile ago on BGG was "do you play the card before attempting the roll and forfeit it even if you fail, or can you hold it back until you see the result of the roll." the answer was you don't have to play the card until you succeed on the avoidance roll making it necessary to then play the card to pay for naval movement.

so it's to you to decide if you want to attempt a roll to avoid combat with a -1 penalty to combat should you fail the avoidance roll.

234 6/25/2018 8:30:00 PM 373-362 BC Gaul Message I have 9 CUs to 5 fake Gauls CUs. Leadership is the same and I am on friendly ground so the mods should be +3 to the real Gauls unless cards are to be played and I am not playing any. Let me know if cards will be played. You have 48 hours to do so...and then I drop some dice...Go!

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
Battle cancelled, Greeks retreat to Capua. I'm pretty sure the use of terms "retreat" and "entered the battle" means no remaining movement, as if a battle had been fought. Greeks to post file, then Rome is up.
217 6/6/2018 5:15:00 PM 373-362 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message To be specific, Samnites treat all home rough spaces as clear spaces.

Message from Greek:
ok, not feeling confident vs 10 Etruscans.

Going to move to Capua for 2MP, then Fregellae for 1MP. It will be 6-1 if Samnites don't avoid, if it gets to battle I will decline playing a card and Samnite can roll.

215 6/6/2018 2:33:00 PM 373-362 BC Gaul Message I think the rule says that the Sammies treat the connections to Bovianum and Aufidena as clear for all purposes.

So that means that the retreat either had to be to or from one of those places.
214 6/6/2018 2:19:00 PM 373-362 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Samnites treat rough as clear. A tough bunch.

Im just looking at taking my turn and noticed that the Samnite force I defeated, it retreated across rough terrain to Fragellae. SHold it be elminated, or is there an exception to Samnite forces using rough terrain?

202 6/2/2018 8:18:00 AM 373-362 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Subjugation is the only way to convert a tribal space.
So Bovianum and Larinum cannot be affected by support.
201 6/1/2018 12:50:00 PM 373-362 BC Roman Message actually Rome can't go yet. I made a log for battle aftermath. But Roger still needs to determine how to use his support from battle win to either place or remove support from Samnites.

Log did following:
E/S loses 4, n1 and retreat to Fregellae and Greeks lose 2, n6 and occupy Bovianum. Greeks still get to place or remove 2 points of support for battle losses inflicted.

To Roger to determine support effects then it's my turn.
