108 12/6/2019 4:18:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message I'm a populace emperor so you can't mob me Brent - might want to gift it to someone else.

Also that means two free votes to unseat me in Italia so you would have succeeded Murray. 2 free votes + 1 free vote from Ambitus is 3and I believe I was on 1 support by that stage so it would have been enough.
107 12/5/2019 7:03:00 AM Turn 1 Yellow Message Okay so I couldnt unseat the Mike but did what I could, maybe Shaun can but it aint looking good.
I also forgot to add a mob to Egypt, could you please increase the number by 1 in Egypt for me Shaun.
106 12/5/2019 5:01:00 AM Turn 1 Green Message 33 logged.

Mobs mobbing. Couldn't stop the end game coming. Maybe one of you two can.

Murray up.
105 12/4/2019 4:43:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message I believe I reshuffled my discard pile so you might want to have a vague idea of the card you like least in the hand you draw this round too.

Just a suggestion.
104 12/4/2019 4:21:00 AM Turn 1 Green Message So I guess it's impossible for us to do a simultaneous throw but we probably should all declare before I do my turn. I'm throwing a 1 yellow so will get a Mob in Macedonia I believe.

Wh you're declared Shaun and Murray I'll take my turn.

103 12/2/2019 2:31:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message ANyone who throws a 1 to Demagogue gets a mob. These will go to :

Aegyptus
Syria
Macedonia

as appropriate.
102 12/2/2019 2:06:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message He was holding a tribute so no real need to worry about the Franks and I find a bunch of barbarians in the countryside is a good defense against losing the province to a rival.

Well as good as you are likely to get short of controlling it properly.

I returned to italia to give some lessons on leadership to the goatherds, not sure they understood but I'm positive you can have another go Brent.

I played demagogue so could everyone decide what they are throwing out now - if we let Brent know he can place any mobs required before he starts his turn proper so the board state is known. The actual discard of card can be done at the start of your own turn (don't forget!)

99 12/2/2019 8:43:00 AM Turn 1 Green Message Michael, 60 Legacy is standard.

Shaun's turn has taken us even further into the Frank hole. Have to back up. There should have been 3 Franks in Murray's turn who didn't invade....then Shaun's roll would have sent 3 to Pannonia and 1 to Italia. That would lose you Pannonia, Shaun, but I think your could Tribute them?

Also my Emperor's support drops to 3 with the takeover of Pannonia.

Need to back up and fix it before Michael's turn or we won't be able to untangle it.

97 12/2/2019 7:22:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message Are we stopping at 40 or 60? Probably should have clarified that earlier...
96 12/2/2019 5:20:00 AM Turn 1 Blue Message Red up again. Hard to get out of the corner

95 12/2/2019 2:11:00 AM Turn 1 Green Message Murray, that Frank in their homeland was inactive from Michaels' last turn (clean up after yourself, dude....you should see how he left the imperial palace!).

You rolled a 4 for invasion and there should have been only 3 Franks so no invasion at all.....meaning you go back to 3 Support in Britain....although Jupiter knows why. Those Britons are clueless.....what do you expect from people who use cow dung as a building material and deodorant?
94 12/2/2019 1:47:00 AM Turn 1 Yellow Message Done over to Shaun take down the Emperor if you can
93 12/1/2019 10:38:00 PM Turn 1 Green Message 29 logged.

New Emperor. Murray up.
92 12/1/2019 10:18:00 PM Turn 1 Green Message Hey, that goat is my sister and Shaun's wife!
91 12/1/2019 10:11:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Hmph!

See it's right there in the ToC folder...

...now.
90 12/1/2019 9:59:00 PM Turn 1 Green Message Trumpish demagoguery from the red (orange) emperor....

"I've heard it said....somebody said.....it's been said...I've heard....(I don't name my source because there is no source).....that we're in the home lap and that we're about to win by the greatest majority ever seen in the history of the empire....."

Release the full transcript and the imperial tax records and the key witnesses and the relevant documents and maybe we'll believe you.

All of which means there's no log for your turn in Dropbox, Michael.....
89 12/1/2019 4:39:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Despite Shaun's best efforts to make a game of it by giving Brent his Legacy I think we are on the victory lap.

85 11/30/2019 11:04:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Not to draw
84 11/30/2019 11:03:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Happy to randomly draw my hand as I did forget. I have 7 cards and I always select one Priceps so 2 D6 for the other two seems fair
83 11/30/2019 11:00:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Wouldn't have it any other way.


82 11/30/2019 8:20:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Unless Shaun can replace me as emperor I probably have it.

I was so confident I forgot to draw my cards

Yellow seems to be the power colour in the expansion, all of them are better than the original.

Princeps and spiculum are the best of the rest though the reprinted damnae memoriae is pretty solid too
81 11/30/2019 1:32:00 AM Turn 1 Yellow Message yep Mikes out in front and I really couldnt do much about it either, maybe next turn. I think I forgot to get my 2 legacy points if you would be good enough Shaun.
It has been my own fault but twice missed out on buying a card and that really hurts the deck development.
The new 3 point yellow card is really powerful.
80 11/30/2019 12:59:00 AM Turn 1 Green Message 26 logged.

Murray up.

I think Michael's a runaway leader here and I don't see a way to catch him. I'm probably in the strongest position (board position, not on the Legacy track).....and I'm not in a strong position.

Working nights and I can only review the logs in batches, so I'm picking up mistakes after the game has progressed and it's too late to fix them. Or I'm misinterpreting......sorry about your Legacy, Murray, tired brain, but if you need to fix things up I think it will help to state clearly in the text log what you're actually doing.

Shaun, you can't choose to take a hit on a Legion in preference to a Militia.....order of death is Militia, then foederated barbs, then legions. I don't know if it would have changed what you've done but I've removed your Militia in Syria for the hit the priest king inflicted....that would have given you 1 extra Military point for the legion you didn't have to retrain but I'm not sure you could have made use of that.

75 11/29/2019 3:11:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Red 25 is up.

You have a new (actual) emperor! with real emperor turns and everything!

I know you are all excited about that

Just a note: You get a card reduction (-2 on a senate card) or a popularity bump in the province for killing a false emperor - if you boost the population in Syria first THEN kill the priest king you get a double bump or if you kill him first you have 2 points in Populace influece left over in reality

though technically you don't need to take either

Just saying.

Over to Brent
74 11/29/2019 4:39:00 AM Turn 1 Yellow Message Hi Shaun,

You may want to redo your turn from the Crisis on wards. Because of the event the black dice goes from 4 to 2 which means 2 barbarians move into Asia.
And that may change what you do for the rest of the turn.
73 11/29/2019 4:07:00 AM Turn 1 Blue Message blue done, red up

70 11/28/2019 6:32:00 PM Turn 1 Yellow Message I just assumes mutual destruction was a victory condition after watching you all fight. I did realise my mistake during the turn and removed the 3 points during the turn. Added them back at the start of my turn.
SO became Emperor for real this time, returned Britain to the Empire and got lots of points (most probably). The Priest King means no Emperor turn points though.
I dont expect the Reign to last long as I cant possibly hold Rome.
69 11/28/2019 5:36:00 PM Turn 1 Green Message 22 logged.

Murray, mutual destruction is not a victory....no winner in your last battle so you didn't get the 3 Legacy....I've docked it from you.

Your turn up.....I'll fix whatever creative rules interpretation you come up with when you're done.

64 11/28/2019 6:20:00 AM Turn 1 Yellow Message Yellow done...over to Shaun

I really needed that extra card from the crisis.
63 11/28/2019 3:07:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message Actually I blame Shaun.

:)

Incidentally I locked myself out of the vassal file earlier so if you want to use your PC at home Murray you can probably do so.

In the ToC module to to Preferences>personal and change your user name and password to the same as the other PC.
62 11/28/2019 1:25:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message sounds good - I will delete the file

61 11/28/2019 1:23:00 AM Turn 1 Green Message Okay, I'm confused (more confused than Murray, so that's bad).

I've uploaded 18_Green.

Now that the fake orange / yellow emperor has been impeached, I've gone from what I thought was Michael's latest file.....but have you gone back and changed it? Did we go back to the Pax Deorum result? I've played without a card draw. I think it's best to delete defunct files as it's confusing to know which to go from. If we go with the Pax result I'll have to go back and redo my turn.....a bit awkward as my card draw would be significantly influenced by advance knowledge of my dice result.

I'm suggesting we go forward from my file without the Pax result and pretend it was all a bad dream (just like Murray's fake popular vote election, won on a promise to build a wall across the Rhine and make the German tribes pay for it....yep, that will work).
60 11/27/2019 9:55:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message I didn't ask so I have uploaded a version where I pretend I rolled the double 6 again. Up to you all if we draw cards again or move on with the new version.
59 11/27/2019 9:46:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Red 17 up again

I rerolled crisis in the interest of getting us moving again and forgetting the travesty that placed teh Yellow one on the throne.

It was painful though, I could have used that extra card for shenanigans

Over to you Brent

58 11/27/2019 8:54:00 PM Turn 1 Blue Message 16 blue re-saved following on from Murrays new 15. took the same event roll and still mostly the same

57 11/27/2019 7:43:00 PM Turn 1 Yellow Message Okay redid the last part of my turn 15 and reposted it. If Shaun wants to start his turn 16 from there. I dont really mind if you want to take the crisis rolls already done or do whole new turn.

54 11/27/2019 6:51:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Well on the bright side I no longer have to refer to you as Imperial Majesty and I can complete my military evaluation of your military performance for the actual emperor.

I have rated Brents troops as green, and yours as yellow - both of you seem to like them that way though :)

Waiting with baited breath for you redone turn Murray - I have big plans that your failed run at the top job is unlikely to change.
53 11/27/2019 5:49:00 PM Turn 1 Yellow Message Realised what I did wrong - I was counting the general as a unit so reducing the number of votes needed by 2, therefore needing 2 not 3. I did the reroll in my now unnecessary 17 yellow draw - got a 5 so close.
52 11/27/2019 5:45:00 PM Turn 1 Yellow Message I just rerolled and didnt get a 6 which would be fine except I need to untrash the cards i trashed. I will redo the turn and then Shaun will have to re do his turn and then Mike - sorry.
51 11/27/2019 4:32:00 PM Turn 1 Green Message I've drawn my card but....

.....big yellow butt. I've gone back to have a look at your turn, Murray and I think there may have been am problem with your imperial grab, unless I'm missing something.

Neutral emperor had 2 support, meaning you needed 4 votes, minus 1 for your legion in the capital. Ambitus gave you 1 vote, so you needed 2 and had only 1 Senate point left to spend.....meaning you needed to roll and get a 6 to take the throne, in which case the odds were well against you becoming emperor.

Can everyone check my reading of that?

50 11/27/2019 4:19:00 PM Turn 1 Blue Message 17a blue draw hand uploaded
49 11/27/2019 3:26:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Sorry lads, curse of the extra card strikes again.

I have uploaded my log so you can all draw a card.

No miracles, just some badly needed consolidation.

I have to wait until September for you to be magnanimous, Michael?
42 11/23/2019 6:28:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message Just a quick suggestion as the Murray juggernaut looks likely to become emperor and pull a 4 pointer unless Brent works some magic.

Demagogue

How about anyone who plays one let's us know in ACTS and we declare if we are throwing out a 1 and the next player places mobs as desired by the owner of that card?

Actual discard can be done at the start of each players own turn.

Not that I am suggesting that there are any demagogues here...
41 11/23/2019 6:09:00 AM Turn 1 Red Message Damn Brexiteers!

My reporting of Brent's military accomplishments was complete so I moved on to chronicle Murray's abilities in Africa.

Whatever dark ritual you performed to bring on the Auguries saved your legion but the emperor will not be impressed anyway.

Over to Brent. September I can be magnanimous in victory.

39 11/22/2019 6:22:00 PM Turn 1 Yellow Message New event though I liked the last one. Bad Auguries is in play - sadly this wont effect Brent's fighting at all.
Did my bit to slow Michael down. Now if someone could roll a 7 before my next turn that would be awesome.

Tragically unfair battle result in Pannonia. That'll teach me to go cheap and sacrifice a gerbel (actually, I bought it from Murray so maybe the gods knew where it had been and rejected it).

I think that may have given Michael the game early. We'll see.

trying to see if murray strikes back

31 11/21/2019 9:45:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message actually probably the fairest thing to do is roll 1D6 in ACTS for Murray's legion - winner take all (sort of)

Gutsy move my friend - I am sure that Mars approves.
30 11/21/2019 9:34:00 PM Turn 1 Red Message Shaun, you can't take the militia - it has to stay at home so you might want to redo that one.

Had to check a couple rules - pretty sure Zenobia isnt a barbarian so no bonus legacy for ending her and her cost reduction is useless early game.

16 11/20/2019 2:13:00 AM Turn 1 Yellow Message Okay did get rid of the old module (already had the new one) but still couldn't look at the cards. Must be because I joined the game on my work computer. Anyway at work drew extra card and saved it. Waiting for Mike and Shaun to draw their extra card. I rolled double 6 for the crisis roll so everyone gets to draw an extra card.
15 11/19/2019 6:48:00 AM Turn 1 Green Message I got an alert that your file was created with the old version of the module, which is why it failed. Get with the times, man. Best thing to do is to delete the older module version from your library so you don't get them mixed up.

We need to pause here for Pax Deorum and each draw a card.....I've done mine in log 3a.......Murray, you might as well wait until everyone else has done it so that you can just draw in your own log and carry on with your turn.

I put the Emperor's support back to 6......remember that it includes Italia itself. He started at 8 and has lost 2 thanks to Michael and me expanding.
