151 6/5/2019 1:04:00 AM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Just realized that the Romans took a VP location from the Greeks so when the Romans went up to 7 VPs, the Greeks went down to 5 VPs.

Greeks should thus be at the end of the reinforcement phase, so they can make adjustments if they wish after the Gauls' upcoming reinforcement.

Message from Roman:
use this to raise loyalty one each in Narnia, Sutrium and Capua
68 12/9/2018 2:11:00 AM 386-374 BC Roman Message E/S-Dan, please don't forget to update the AR round when it moves forward on your next action. that will help our new guy see that NP powers are available to be active again (Eric, this is shown by pulling off their small activation marker from the active player large marker)

at beginning of my log I put putting E-S there on active player and I think it should stay on E-S through this game turn to show who is First player at all times. i always have to check that in games where we keep changing the active player marker to the next guy's faction and there is no need to change it to active player each time since we ping the next person up anyways, plus there is a vassal log showing who just went.
