299 6/13/2019 3:32:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message Thanks Michal.

Unfortunately there's no Ariovistus Vassal update so live is the only option at the moment.

I don't think the Aedui and Belgae can change the outcome but we can make it more respectable :).
298 6/12/2019 6:17:00 PM Turn 35 Rome Message PS. Thanks Brent for Ariovistus report - I think I would like to play it and it would be probably hard for me to get the people in live meeting, so "some day soon" I think I woudl be open for 3 winters scenario.

10 turns Behemoth - only Pericles with attrition, for sure not Falling Sky :)
297 6/12/2019 6:15:00 PM Turn 35 Rome Message Exciting end of game :) Waiting for your moves guys - I am observer now only...
296 6/12/2019 9:18:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message Sorry, I'd note that March is allowed at Frost if granted by an Event.....and Mons Cevenna has a March option......but it doesn't look like one that either the Aedui or Belgae are in a position to use.
295 6/12/2019 8:57:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message That's right, Richard, we play the last card.......which is in Frost, so no March. There is a Sudden Frost variant which switches the order of Winter and the current card (sounds much like the Epoch in Pendragon) but standard rule is play the current card, then Winter.

Aedui and then Belgae are eligible...and then we're done.

Brent.
294 6/12/2019 7:57:00 AM Turn 35 Arverni Message Hi All,

Did my turn and winter came up

Do we play the next card before winter? I think I got ahead of myself (in Pendragon you play the Epoch card immediately) and I did the victory calcs. Over to the Aedui to see if they can make a difference.


293 6/12/2019 3:48:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message Thanks Michal. So that's Richard up with the Arverni.

Three opportunities for winter now. Next card would suit me nicely :). Any longer a campaigning season for Caesar and I think the Belgic resistance movement is over. Sacrificing as we speak. Suspenseful!

Mark might chip in but I really enjoyed Ariovistus. Not a great deal more complicated, just a very different strategic setup and dynamic with different historical flavour. It was very close. We played the the standard 3 turn Ariovistus scenario and it went to the last winter, with my Romans winning on a tie break sharing equal points with Mark's Germans, and the Aedui and Belgae only 1 and 2 points behind us respectively. It's a qualified result because I made a mistake with how the Arverni worked, assuming their rally was like the German non-player faction in the base game, which made them far more formidable than they should have been and likely changed the whole flow of the game......keen to try it again with the correct rules.

The Germans are interesting and create a much greater threat on Rome's eastern flank, changing up the the whole strategic situation dramatically. Ariovistus himself is a terror.

The Arverni are much more active than they are in the base game because they activate by card icon (a carynx, about 25 of them in the deck) but they don't invade non-home regions like the Germans......still, they have four home provinces and those are critical to the success of the Romans, Aedui and Belgae, so poking them into life is unavoidable. Probably not nearly as dangerous playing them correctly, though.

Diviciacus did limit the Aedui. We didn't use the Roman / Aedui troop sharing rule at all, as the Aedui were on the cusp of victory throughout and although as the Roman player I helped out with supply lines for Trade (taking a cut, of course :) I wasn't inclined to help them militarily.

Some interesting new cards with flavour appropriate to the different historical context.

Overall, not a necessary change from the original game at all but a cool alternative for those who've played it a few times, want to try something different and have an interest in the different historical focus. I can't see myself playing the other scenario, the extended 10 year Pax Gallica game, in which the Germans switch to the Arverni half way through.....I don't think this game is one that develops a progression in game state (probably true of many COIN games?) and I suspect 10 turns probably wouldn't enhance the play experience, not to mention the awkwardness of the Arverni to German faction shift. I think chances are it would end early with an automatic victory and in that case you might as well be playing a shorter scenario. Otherwise by the tenth turn I imagine it may have outstayed it's welcome. If I'm going to play a 10 turner where there's a meaningful progression in game state I'd be opting for Pericles (but I'm biased :).
292 6/11/2019 7:05:00 PM Turn 35 Rome Message My moves done. Risking again - but now with highers possibility for success!

Brent,
how Ariovistus game went?
291 6/7/2019 8:35:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message 43a_logged...this includes a pass to complete card 42.

Mark and the Aedui up on card 43, Remi Influence.

I did some battling, including a tiff with the Arverni in Treveri. The only possible retreat routes were to the Romans in Mandubii or Atrebates and I assumed at this late stage that it wouldn't be granted......but Richard if you did want to ask for a retreat haven and if you were to grant it Michal, 3 Arverni warbands would survive to reach either of those regions.
290 6/7/2019 7:10:00 AM Turn 35 Rome Message And I am glad to hear how play in Ariovistus went!
289 6/7/2019 7:10:00 AM Turn 35 Rome Message Sorry for Delay; I passed and played as first on next card, using only Command (I overlooked that event is superb for Belgae - two free of charge tribes).

Over to Belgae for Limited Command.
288 6/6/2019 3:25:00 PM Turn 35 Rome Message Hi Guys,
I will have time and possibility to do my move tomorrow. I had really hard week at work and virtually no time for boardgames.
287 6/5/2019 7:32:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message Just a nudge that you're up, Michal.

Very close to the finish line now. Anywhere from one to six more cards and we'll wrap it up. Definitely hoping to get it done before the end of the month. I'm planning to get a game of Pendragon started after this (intimidating but I have to face the beast).

Mark and I are playing the Ariovistus expansion this weekend. Very interested to see how it changes the dynamics and strategy of the game. Taking a player Arverni off Rome and the Aedui's western flank opens up that part of Gaul but the German player faction on the east looks to be very strong (Ariovistus is a monster). Will let you know how it goes.
286 5/31/2019 9:08:00 PM Turn 35 Arverni Message Hi All,
The Averni have a leader again. Back to the Romans

Richard
285 5/31/2019 9:07:00 AM Turn 35 Rome Message My thinking resulted in ... Passing. Over to Arverni / Richard.
284 5/26/2019 3:06:00 AM Turn 35 Arverni Message Hi All,
I passed - over to the Romans
Richard
283 5/24/2019 4:31:00 AM Turn 35 Rome Message Hi Guys,

Mark, I think your second file does not have correct extension - am I right?

Richard - I think it will be your move after Mark.
282 5/21/2019 5:59:00 AM Turn 35 Aedui Message Fixed. just run both of my 39 Aedui files. Sorry
281 5/21/2019 5:56:00 AM Turn 35 Aedui Message I used the event, not sure about it though. Hey, just figured it out while typing. I'll go back and fix it.
280 5/20/2019 9:02:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message Hey Mark.

Just a nudge that you're up on card 39.
279 5/15/2019 8:53:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message 39a_Belgae logged and Mark up for the Aedui.

Would have loved to take Colony (such a good event for the Belgae) but terrible timing for it and getting too tight. Ambiorix and the Germans on the move instead.
278 5/15/2019 5:39:00 AM Turn 35 Aedui Message I passed. Over to Brent.
277 5/13/2019 4:07:00 PM Turn 35 Rome Message As Belgae is far, far away in points in front the rest of us, I had to act against them (again?)

Move and build. Over to Aedui for Limited command (event is ineffective - Pompey supports Caesar!)
276 5/12/2019 4:26:00 PM Turn 35 Rome Message Hi Guys,

I will have time / access tomorrow to do my move. I won't deny, big decisions in front of me... Especially that finally Command + Special is a no brainier.
275 5/12/2019 4:37:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message Just a nudge, Michal. Youíre up when youíre ready.

Almost there.
274 5/8/2019 4:04:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message Thanks Richard.

27c_Belgae uploaded.

Nothing blue left in Atrebates...Belgica for the Belgae!

Rome up for card 38, Pompey.


273 5/7/2019 11:41:00 PM Turn 35 Arverni Message Sorry Mark. No refuge.
Richard
272 5/7/2019 9:42:00 PM Turn 35 Belgae Message That's a good point, defender would ask first but if nobody grants refuge then there's no point...so would you offer the Aedui a retreat destination, Richard, if they requested it? If not, I can go ahead and finish up.
271 5/7/2019 12:58:00 PM Turn 35 Rome Message If I remember correctly, defender first checks if anybody allows him place to retreat and then takes decision if actually retreat.

With broken heart, I have to deny the asylum for Aedui...
270 5/6/2019 9:14:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message Thanks guys. 27b_Belgae uploaded.

I fixed a couple of things....Roman auxilia revealed by the battle in Mandubii and the Arverni docked 2 Resources for their movement.

I'm battling your Aedui in Atrebates, Mark, and have paused for a retreat decision from you.....you'd need to ask Richard or Michal if they will give you a repeat destination if you want to, and they will need to agree. Otherwise it's all warbands and the ally eliminated.
269 5/6/2019 8:28:00 AM Turn 35 Arverni Message Moved around a bit.
Over to the Belgae
268 5/6/2019 6:22:00 AM Turn 35 Aedui Message Not our best turn. Over to Richard

267 5/4/2019 6:18:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message That's an annihilation, Michal, no matter what Mark decides. I think in that sort of circumstance you can just expedite things and complete your turn.
266 5/3/2019 5:01:00 PM Turn 35 Rome Message Ok, I decided for Command - battle in Mandubi.

Mark, do you retreat? (I think that will not change the outcome of the battle)
265 5/3/2019 4:54:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message No rush, Michal, but just a reminder that Romeís up.
264 4/27/2019 6:59:00 AM Turn 35 Belgae Message Ah, forgot your Capability....that'll learn me.
263 4/27/2019 1:08:00 AM Turn 35 Arverni Message Averni finished their turn. Over to the Romans.
262 4/26/2019 11:45:00 PM Turn 35 Arverni Message Averni are battling. The Belgae have a decision to make.

Richard
261 4/26/2019 7:34:00 PM Turn 35 Belgae Message Thanks Michal.

35a_Belgae logged and the Arverni are up, Richard.

I fixed the Entreat in Veneti as discussed.
260 4/26/2019 7:33:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Change game turn Game turn changed to Turn 35
259 4/26/2019 11:38:00 AM Turn 24 Rome Message Hi,

sorry, business trip kept me occupied through the week. I did my move (well, how that fort survived among all those Aedui I do not know, but will be useful now) plus Richards resources plus entreat (I think it was possible only in Carnutes)

Over to Belgae if I remember correctly.
258 4/25/2019 6:58:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message Hey Michal, just a shout out to check you're in synch. You're up for next play when you're ready.
257 4/21/2019 11:44:00 PM Turn 24 Arverni Message I'll entreat the warband so costs 5 resources.
256 4/21/2019 10:34:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message Is that GOT on screen or the boardgame, Mark? I recently got the Mother of Dragons expansion, which I haven't cracked yet. Mark M is a fan of the game and keen to try the expansion some time.

Richard, I don't think you paid the 4 Resources for your rallying. You were right about Entreating....you switch other powers' pieces, you can't simply place like the Aedui. You could have Entreated my lonely warband in Veneti if you wanted, which would cost 1 extra Resource. Michal, could you please readjust the Arverni Resources in your turn?.....4 down to 11, or 5 to 10 if Richard wants to Entreat.
255 4/21/2019 8:41:00 PM Turn 24 Aedui Message Aedui just had their turn. Over to Rome, sorry forgot to clear my markers...rushing because GOT is starting soon.
254 4/20/2019 10:02:00 PM Turn 24 Arverni Message Happy Easter,

Back from Fiji.

The Averni have gone.
Not sure about Entreat and subdued tribes. My reading is that I can't Entreat a Subdued tribe. If I can then please place 3 more warbands in Veneti, as I'd rally them there and then Entreat.

Over to the Aedui

Richard

253 4/14/2019 6:09:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message 33a_Belgae uploaded.

Arverni are up when you get back from holiday, Richard.

After all that the rally rolls were pretty uneventful...just one success for the Arverni in Pictones. As good as the Correus event looked I actually didn't think it was the optimal move for me.....but it turned out to be the best for damage limitation so I've done it.
252 4/13/2019 6:11:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message Ah sorry, you're right Michal. All that overthinking and I still got out wrong ! :) No question that Seize is one of the most complicated of the all the Commands in the game.

The Harrassment occurs in the Seize regions, the Rally in adjacent regions (I wasn't suggesting harassment as a result of the Scout movement, but of the Seize).

So the only consequence is the 3 x Arverni Rally rolls in Pictones and the Belgic single rally rolls in Treveri and Ubii. If you're happy with that situation I can do them in my turn.

I've learned that everyone is always in the game....I won as Rome unexpectedly recently, on the last card flip, from a weaker position than Caesar is now in for this game. I do think the Arverni have it tough, though. As strong as they are, with their huge capacity to build armies, their victory conditions are extremely difficult to achieve, particularly the off-board legion clause. Somebody invariably looks responsible for somebody else getting over the line. It's almost impossible to push your own agenda without leaving the back door open for another faction but there's always somebody capable of dealing with it.....in this case the Aedui were in best position to neuter the Belgae last winter, and did a good job of it.

We had an early second Winter.....we're only just finishing the 32nd card, last of the second deck.....a long campaigning season ahead and all sorts of possibilities.
251 4/13/2019 2:16:00 PM Turn 24 Rome Message Richard,

I can understand your frustration. However, it is hard for me to agree with your statement regarding Rome play.

I admit, I committed terrible blunder in first winter, which costed me large chunk of my army plus next year to rebuild it.

However, except for this I am relatively satisfied: most dangerous leader - Vercingetorix - dead, largest possible army - Arverni - crushed with no hope to rebuild as their home region is overrun; four disperse markers on board allowing Rome to focus in other regions.

Will I win the game - probably not. Am I glad at what I managed to accomplish after first winter - definitely yes :)

Still, let us see how things will play out.
250 4/13/2019 2:15:00 PM Turn 24 Rome Message Brent,

can you have a look into the rules once again. As I read it, harassment is in regions selected for Seize, not in regions where Arverni/Belgae rally. Thus no harassment possible. What do you read?

Also, I think harassment during move happens only if you move through region, so scout out of Pictones will not result in harass.

Lastly, as for aux in Aedui I will correct it, just lest us first have answer to above consideration before I will try to do my log 3rd time :)
249 4/12/2019 10:36:00 PM Turn 24 Arverni Message Hi All
Iím in Fiji for a week and wonít have access to vassal until I get home.

Iíll obviously take any free rallies that are on offer.

Btw the Belgae are the Romans problem. Having the best army and not using it (or cowering with Caesar which is much the same thing in a game that requires control of more than one area) isnít very productive.
248 4/12/2019 8:56:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message ....and I'm making a hash of this by not going back to the rules, sorry. I should know this as I played Rome and went though all this in detail a couple of games ago :(

There are rolls to determine whether those rallies occur and they happen for every Dispersed marker Rome places. So the Arverni have three rolls for success on 1-3 to rally in Pictones.....could be no warbands, could be 6 or somewhere in-between. The result would determine how many Auxilia were killed in the harassment step in Pictones. The Belgae get 1 roll to see if they rally in Treveri and Ubii.
247 4/12/2019 7:23:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message Sorry, I've complicated an already complicated explanation by misreading the Rally rule and forgetting that some Aedui warbands are unhidden and not eligible to harass.. The consequences of the the Roman Seize as it stands would be:

1. Free Rallies....2 Arverni warbands at Pictones, 1 Belgic warband at Treveri, 1 Belgic warband at Ubii.

2. Harassment....1 dead Auxilia at Pictones if the Arverni decide to do it there (the Aedui are unhidden so can't do it, my mistake); a roll for Fort survival at Mandubii if the Aedui elect to harass there.

Not as bad as first advertised. Let us know what you want to do, Michal.

246 4/12/2019 7:02:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message Apologies....the Arverni would also get a free 2 warband Rally in Pictones and the Belgae would also get a free 1 warband Rally in each of Treveri and Ubii, as warband Rally don't require control.
245 4/12/2019 6:57:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message Thanks Michal.

There are some consequences to the Seize command. Arverni and Belgae free Rally in adjacent provinces....this was well engineered at your current position because that would only be the Arverni in Treveri (2 warbands).

Then the Aedui have the option of rolling to take out your Fort in Mandubii and taking out 2 AAuxilia in Pictones (before they scout moved back to Arverni).....Romano-Aedui relations haven't been too close and at this stage of the game Mark may choose to stick in the knife.

Also, the Auxilia that scouted back to Arverni don't rehide. Hiding is a function of the March command, not of moving in general.

Sequencing the Seize and Scout is important so I don't know if you want to do it again. If not, we need to give the Arverni 2 warbands in Treveri and Mark needs to make a decision about harrassing Rome in Pictones and rolling for the Fort in Mandubii. If you want it to stand I can fix all that in my turn...otherwise I'll wait for you to redo.
244 4/12/2019 9:19:00 AM Turn 24 Rome Message My move done; sounds like Belgae will be again close to victory soon :)
243 4/10/2019 8:20:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message Thanks Michal.

I was a bit confused until I realised you didn't take your turn from the latest log file, which is 32a_Belgae, which already had a lot of what you cleaned up, including the card cycle. For your Scout special you can only place Scout markers within one region of Caesar (the free move for Auxilia can occur anywhere) so that Scout markers in Mandubii won't work. As it's a bit complex, we might need you too log again, sorry, from that last log, 32a_Belgae.
242 4/10/2019 5:36:00 PM Turn 24 Rome Message Guys,

a really EPIC end is imminent. I see that Falling Sky really shines in last year. Please check if my moves were correct...

OVER TO BELGAE (BRENT)

Regards,
Michal
241 4/8/2019 8:54:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message 32a_Belgae uploade

Passed and over to Rome
240 4/8/2019 8:09:00 AM Turn 24 Arverni Message Averni have gone. There are two log files as i forgot to do the end of turn stuff.
Over to the Belgae
239 4/7/2019 4:43:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message I've just finished a Vassal game of this scenario with some mates. A combination of live and PBEM, so it took a week to play (from last Sunday night to last night). It went the full three years and my Aedui won on a points victory, tied for allies with the Belgae.

The Belgae look like they're in a no win starting position but both of these games show that they're not........they came within a whisker of winning at the second winter and he was a first time COIN player.

This was my first play with the Aedui and I do think they are the easiest faction to win with. Their victory condition is promoted by the other factions fighting each other and Suborn is so powerful. It helped that I pulled the Convictolivatis Capability that let me Suborn in two regions! The other factions really need to watch what's going on with them as winter approaches and maybe even hold back on pursuing their own objectives if it means destroying allies. I also used Trade to good effect for the first time I've seen it played. My Aedui had a closer alliance with Rome than I've seen in other games and it paid dividends (double Suborn was expensive).

Finally, I offered an "even" deck distribution of first activations and they were strongly opposed to it. Partly due to the hassle of doing it in Vassal but also because they didn't feel it was actually balanced. First activation isn't the whole story, as it doesn't account for eligibility order on the rest of each card and it doesn't account for distribution of activations in each year, which is important when the game can end at any winter. We didn't notice a major skewing of the cards. The Arverni were probably the most aggrieved and that was because he didn't see a Capability appear all game, not because he didn't have first activations. I'm ambivalent but certainly playing on Vassal I think I'd agree and not got the "balanced" deck route again.

I like the shorter scenarios for PBEM. I'd love to try the 3 turn Ariovistus scenario but it hasn't been Vassalised yet.
238 4/6/2019 9:24:00 PM Turn 24 Aedui Message Aedui went for the event;surprise,surprise. Over to Richard.
237 4/3/2019 5:48:00 PM Turn 24 Rome Message Rome Battles in Arverni. Over to Aedui Surus indeed looks very attractive to Mark, as he can easily establish himself in Belgica.
236 4/3/2019 6:11:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message Thanks Mark. Didn't realise you could March in place. Learned something new.

29b and 30a_Belgae uploaded. Passed, then performed a Command to Rally. Rome up for a Pass or Limited on Shifting Loyalties.
235 4/3/2019 2:40:00 AM Turn 24 Aedui Message Aedui just took the OP. Brent is up.
234 3/31/2019 10:16:00 AM Turn 24 Rome Message Hello,

once again sorry for delay. Finally found some time on weekend to do my moves - and really, I had to think what to do. Not sure how will it play out (and maybe too late), but finally Romans scouted the Gauls. Let us see! Over to Mark (Aedui).
233 3/29/2019 2:33:00 PM Turn 24 Rome Message Hi Guys,

sorry for delay, I will do my moves on weekend.
232 3/27/2019 4:51:00 AM Turn 24 Aedui Message Aedui passed, over to Rome.
231 3/25/2019 2:31:00 AM Turn 24 Arverni Message Averni took the capability. Over to the Aedui.

230 3/24/2019 10:45:00 AM Turn 24 Rome Message Winter phase finished, over to Richard
229 3/23/2019 1:29:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message Thanks Richard.

No, Germans are first and none of their quartering conditions triggered (mainly Devastation).

Rome is up for final quartering, Michal.....a bit easier for you this time :). Would you be happy to finish off winter with the Harvest, Senate and Spring phases and new card draw?

Then Richard and the Arverni will be up first for Card 28, Massed Gallic Archers.
228 3/22/2019 11:05:00 PM Turn 24 Arverni Message Hi All,

Sorry for the delay. The Arverni are happy with everything at the moment.

Over to the Germans i think.

Richard
227 3/20/2019 5:12:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message Thanks Mark. Arverni up next for quartering, Richard.
226 3/20/2019 3:44:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message Just a reminder that your Aedui are up for quartering, Mark.
225 3/17/2019 5:37:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message 27a_Winter logged.

Germans took a serious dislike to the Arverni....sorry, Richard, the rolls fell that way. I've quartered the Belgae and it's over to Mark and the Aedui for quartering.
224 3/17/2019 4:56:00 AM Turn 24 Rome Message Yes, of course Rome has no choice if we would like to play further rounds.

Battle in Sequani, Aedui going down one Ally thus playing further.

Brent,
if you could please do the Winter phase.

223 3/16/2019 9:03:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message Thanks Mark.

So Aedui win at Winter if they stay at 8 allies + strongholds. Just you in the way, Caesar, and the only option to prevent that with your Limited is to battle your "allies" in Sequani. Sorry to put you in that position (well, not that sorry.....poetic justice :).

If you do deal with the Aedui issue and get us through to the Germanic phase, you're welcome to run that through (but I'm happy to). The only variable will be which of the 3 regions the 4 Sugambri warbands will go to (equal chance Morini, Nervii, Treveri) and who they will Raid and Battle. Otherwise I'm happy to do it as it will lead straight into my Belgic quartering.
222 3/16/2019 4:08:00 PM Turn 24 Aedui Message Aedui took the obvious move.
221 3/12/2019 7:23:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message Your supply lines are good this time, Michal.
220 3/12/2019 11:02:00 AM Turn 24 Rome Message I also did not checked that "winter is coming". So instead of being in Provincia I am in the woods...
219 3/12/2019 8:47:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message 25d_Belgae logged and Mark up for card 26, Diviciacus.

Unfortunately Atrebates is uncontrolled and not a valid retreat destination for your army, Richard. Unless the Aedui want to give you refuge in Pictones your only valid retreat destination is Carnutes, so I've taken the liberty of moving your army there.

Winter is here (first possible card slot at 27) so Diviciacus is in Frost. My aggression has put the Aedui one Suborn away from victory and with the eligibility to do it. Sorry, I have a bad track record for giving the Aedui the win in previous games :(. If Mark takes that opportunity Rome will be last to act and able to fix it just before the snows hit.

Apologies for the delay. The Averni retreated. Back to the Belgae to finish off the turn.

Richard
217 3/9/2019 2:46:00 PM Turn 24 Belgae Message Sorry Richard, just a reminder that you have a retreat decision in Veneti.
216 3/4/2019 7:05:00 AM Turn 24 Belgae Message 25b_Belgae logged.

Battling in Veneti and you have a Retreat decision there, Richard....happy for you to log it and finish the turn or let me know what you'd like to do and I can log it.
215 3/4/2019 6:25:00 AM Turn 24 Rome Message Rome is aware that concentrating in one point long term does not make sense. But there is larger plan here, one which will help to rebuild at least to some extent Rome but also stop Belgae.

And bear in mind end of winter I was at verge of collapsing...
214 3/4/2019 6:17:00 AM Turn 24 Arverni Message Hi All,
The Averni did more marching. I've done my bit to slow down the Belgae march to victory. Up to the Aedui and the Romans now. I'm doing no more. Rome will never achieve anything controlling but one area at a time with an invincible army, They have to spread out a bit.
BTW, I just realised I forgot to adjust resources.
Over to to the Belgae.
213 3/4/2019 4:34:00 AM Turn 24 Aedui Message Richard is first up.
212 3/4/2019 4:33:00 AM Turn 23 Aedui End Turn
211 3/3/2019 10:46:00 AM Turn 23 Rome Message I passed and then did move + build. Over to Mark.
210 3/3/2019 6:56:00 AM Turn 23 Belgae Message Thanks Richard. I think you needed to pay 1 Resource for your move?, which I've deducted.

Michal and Rome up

204 3/3/2019 12:58:00 AM Turn 21 Belgae Message No problem, Mark.

Unfortunately no Ally can be placed on a Dispersed Tribe, even with Suborn. If you do it in the Atrebates region it will have to be the Remi.
203 3/2/2019 6:55:00 PM Turn 21 Aedui Message Sorry for the delay guys. Over to Richard.
202 2/27/2019 7:57:00 PM Turn 21 Belgae Message Hi Mark.

Just a gentle nudge (with a spearpoint but that goes for friendly with the Belgae :)....you're up for first eligibility on the next card.
201 2/24/2019 4:22:00 PM Turn 21 Rome Message Hi Guys,

I am back from vacations and ready to play.
I did Limited Command (good play Brent! somehow I knew you will do it :))

I recruited 4 Aux in Provincia. Over to AEDUI (MARK).

PS. Do you know when Ariovistus module will come up? I would love to play expansion.
200 2/19/2019 9:44:00 AM Turn 21 Belgae Message 21a_Belgae uploaded

Much grain requisitioned.

Over to Rome for a Limited or Pass. I know that might be a while for you, Michal, unless you know what you want to do and have us do it for you.
