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...

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.

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,

231 3/25/2019 2:31:00 AM Turn 24 Arverni Message Averni took the capability. Over to the Aedui.

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.


218 3/12/2019 7:37:00 AM Turn 24 Arverni Message Hi,

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.

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.

190 2/13/2019 8:10:00 AM Turn 19 Belgae Message Richard, I didnít notice but when the Romans retreated in Atrebates, your warbands there should have stayed hidden.Thereís no Reveal step in battle if a Retreat is declared ( one reason a defender may elect not to retreat and sacrifice units to force the stacking army to become unhidden).

180 2/13/2019 5:20:00 AM Turn 18 Aedui Message We are going to allow sanctuary in our area.
179 2/13/2019 4:42:00 AM Turn 18 Belgae Message Michal,

The first battle was in Sequani and the Arverni destroyed your Fort there.

The second battle is in Atrebates and 4 Arverni warbands are attacking your Ally in Remi and the single Auxilia there. 2 hits, reduced to 1 if you Retreat. If you Retreat your Auxilia it will survive but the Ally will take the hit. If you remain both will be killed with the 2 hits, so the only real option for you is to ask for a retreat destination. Sorry, but the Belgae won't be inviting Roman troops further into Belgica, the only retreat destinations under my control.

That just leaves the Aedui in Mandubii, Mark. If they offer sanctuary, the Auxilia would survive, if not it goes down with the Remi.

Richard, you mentioned you're doing a Command + Special but your options for that are limited to your successor leader's region now that Vercingetorix is drinking and hunting with his ancestors. At the moment that just looks like Devastation, which you probably don't want to do!
178 2/13/2019 3:55:00 AM Turn 18 Rome Message Hi Richard,

177 2/13/2019 3:49:00 AM Turn 18 Arverni Message Hi,

The Averni are doing battle. Michal has a decision about retreating, that is if anyone will give him sanctuary.

Richard
176 2/13/2019 3:08:00 AM Turn 18 Rome Message Hi Guys,

I also like capabilities as they actually make each game different. There are so many of them that each game could look differently.

Let us see how things unfold - I admit, I have two good capabilities but not too much forces and I am afraid once my seizure markers disappear from Belgae territory nothing will stop yellow pawns form overrunning them. Still, that Seizure command seems to my like my best play in that game :)

Also, with such a dynamic like now, everybody can be enemy of everybody. Sounds like fun!
175 2/12/2019 7:36:00 PM Turn 18 Belgae Message Thanks, Richard.

I'm glad the Capabilities are quite strong, otherwise there would never be a consideration of taking them over Command + Special, a nice tension which you've highlighted. They also flavour the whole game. In my last game the Arverni took Winter Campaign (the only capability taken in the whole game).....which he reserved to unpick all the Roman gains just before the Senate Phase every turn (with no possibility of immediate reprisal), keeping the Senate at Uproar the whole game. That characterised the whole game and will make it memorable over others I've played or will play, as the narrative of the Arverni winter warriors.

This game Rome has been hammered but the dual capabilities still makes caesar a huge threat. They may not get used a lot in this short game (I'm sure they actually will) but the potential they represent means that everybody else has to be even more cautious, which changes the whole dynamic of the metagame. Very cool.
174 2/12/2019 6:13:00 PM Turn 18 Arverni Message Yes, All the COIN games have capabilities. that either last for the rest of the game or just to the next Coup (etc). Often they are very powerful and in some cases (like AAA for the NVA in Fire in the Lake to protect the Ho Chi Minh Trail)) are pretty essential. The opportunity cost can be high (giving up a full move + special). In my early playings of A Distant Plain I needed up with too many capabilities and not doing enough fighting. It can be a tough balancing act.
173 2/12/2019 5:31:00 PM Turn 18 Belgae Message This is interesting.

My last 4 turn game, there was one Capability in play all game. We're at the start of second turn of a 3 turn game and there are already 4 Capabilities in play! This is a very different game and I think the great variability of the strategic landscape that these permanent Capabilities provide really does create the potential for a lot of variety between games.

Having no experience with other COIN, are there permanent Capabilities I some of the others....and are they as game changing?
172 2/12/2019 5:08:00 PM Turn 18 Rome Message After soem consideration, I took the capability. Not sure if there is enough time to use it but we shall see.

166 2/11/2019 6:14:00 PM Turn 17 Belgae Message Richard, no problem. Its a minor thing but I think that's what PBEM is good for...learning the fine details.

I think that clause of the single warband (or Auxilia) Rally in a home region is there to give a faction an in when they're beaten down.....e.g. when Provinicia is overrun with barbarians :)
165 2/11/2019 5:41:00 PM Turn 17 Rome Message I did the corrections (legions and Warbands in Arverni).

I will pass.
164 2/11/2019 4:13:00 PM Turn 17 Arverni Message Fair enough. I read it as a bonus. Can the next player please remove a warband?
163 2/11/2019 7:33:00 AM Turn 17 Belgae Message You're right, Richard. There should be 1 Legion form the Senate in the Fallen Legions box.

I think you should have Rallied only 5 warbands, not 6....1 Leader, 2 allies, 1 Citadel +1 Arverni bonus. The bit on there player aid about being able to ally 1 warband in your home region is a default single warband rally if you have no leader/ally/citadel there, not an additional warband on top of a proper rally (same wording applies to the general Rally rule for all the Gallic factions).

161 2/11/2019 5:48:00 AM Turn 16 Arverni Message Hi All,
Shouldn't there be 1 Legion still unavailable? I thought 3 legions died for lack of supply and shouldn't half, rounded down still be in the fallen legions box (ie one).
160 2/11/2019 5:28:00 AM Turn 16 Arverni Message Hi all,
Sorry for the delay. We've been having internet problems.
The Averni rallied. Over to the Romans, who have choices to make.
159 2/11/2019 2:00:00 AM Turn 16 Belgae Message Sorry, Richard, just wanting to check you know youíre up.
158 2/6/2019 9:00:00 PM Turn 16 Belgae Message Thanks Michal. I think itís the Arverni next eligible on card 16.
157 2/6/2019 5:58:00 PM Turn 16 Rome Message I will pass and take 2 resources; over to Aedui.
156 2/6/2019 4:03:00 AM Turn 15 Aedui End Turn
155 2/6/2019 4:02:00 AM Turn 15 Aedui Message Over to Rome
