361 1/29/2020 1:16:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Message Ahh this was always managed by the program on wargameroom. I believe that VPs are only checked at the end of each turn. I will have to review the rulebook.
360 1/29/2020 12:48:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Are we supposed to adjust the VP right away or wait till round end?

343 1/24/2020 3:31:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Ted,
Sorry if it wasnít clear but your leader is gone. For some reason the events donít get copied when you play them in the journal.
See 336. I thought I deleted him from my logfile.
342 1/24/2020 8:10:00 AM 361-348 BC Greek Play Strategy card - Operations #20: 2 / Neutral Power Activates

Message from Greek:
Dionysius and 10 CU march to Neapolis to attack Claudius. 3 CU from inside the City sortie for the attack. I have +1 for leader rating differential and +1 because I control Naples. No CCs for me. Rome can attempt to avoid battle on a 1-3 but if fails that is a -1 modifier in Combat roll. Rome to play any cards and resolve.
341 1/24/2020 12:21:00 AM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Greek (Ted) is up.
340 1/24/2020 12:19:00 AM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Play Strategy card - Event #27: 3 / Mercenaries Switch Sides

Message from Gaul:
Use 1 plunder point to retake control of Bononia with Gallic Solidarity.
Then activate Brennus and formation if 8Cu (2CU stay back with Minor Leaders B-C. Move from PLacentia to Faesulae; attempt to plunder there.
336 1/23/2020 12:34:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Play Strategy card - Event #34: 3 / Epirote Traitor

Message from Roman:
There is a fine line between bold and stupid. You are probably right, I only took over 7 instead. If you think this is too late, feel free to put it back to ten.
Meanwhile, Dionysius finds a sizeable bag of roman coin in his purse and sails off for other adventures.
335 1/22/2020 11:43:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Message I don't see anything in the rules against it. It's a bold move. Siege of Syracuse begins
334 1/22/2020 10:43:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message I didnít see anything in the rules about it.
I really donít know the answer to your question.
Do they have to eliminate all Greek units first?
333 1/22/2020 8:29:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Message No reaction, Are you sure Hamilcar can abandon Carthago?
332 1/22/2020 4:12:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Play Strategy card - Event #20: 2 / Neutral Power Activates

Message from Roman:
OMG, so I just wasted everyone time, lol. Sorry.
Activate Hamlicar with 10 units and sail to Syracuse.
Any reaction?
331 1/22/2020 3:34:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Message I just sailed to Taranto to join my stack. There is no battle pending.
330 1/22/2020 2:42:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Sorry for taking so long, was traveling and also trying to decide what to do.
I think I'm going to fight. I'm the defender, right?
Are you going to play any cards? It is currently +2 in your favor I believe.
329 1/21/2020 1:49:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Message Rome is up I think.
328 1/19/2020 11:38:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Message I have no designs against Samnite lands.

Avoid battle is to roll against the leader's tactical rating. Failed avoid battle gives a -1 to combat dice roll.
327 1/19/2020 11:21:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Man, that would have been nice if you hd plyed thatmforst.
326 1/19/2020 11:11:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Sorry for the fumble.
325 1/19/2020 11:11:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Return Strategy card to hand #12: 2 / Punic Naval Victory

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
Sorry, it is not a Response card, back to my hand.
323 1/19/2020 11:09:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Play Strategy card - Event #12: 2 / Punic Naval Victory

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
That is going too close to home for my Samnites' comfort.
322 1/19/2020 10:36:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Avoid battle is just a straight roll looking for a three or less?
321 1/19/2020 9:13:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Play Strategy card - Operations #33: 3 / Indian War Elephants

Message from Greek:
Dionysius and 3 CU naval move to Tarentum.
320 1/19/2020 8:20:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message If all looks ok with my turn, then Greek (Ted) is up.
319 1/19/2020 8:18:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Yes, Campaign is powerful, but rare.

So combat rolls for Etruscans were 6, 1, 4 = 11 + 8 DRM = 19. Gauls rolled 6, 1, 3 = 10. So Etruscans won the battle. As per losses, Gauls lose 3 CUs from the dice (6 gives L2 and 4 gives L1), then the fourth CU from having to retreat through enemy spaces. Etruscans lose 1 CU from the 6 (W1) the Gauls rolled.

Etruscans get to place/remove 2 Support.
"Replace the losing powerís PC marker in a space free of enemy CU with the winnerís PC marker if the winning power began the battle controlling an adjacent space."
-I will take control of Bononia and Luna from Gaul.
318 1/19/2020 7:57:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message I think that the gauls are annihilated, and the Etruscans lose 1CU. The Gallic leader goes to the holding box.

Message from Gaul:
top Etruscans. +8
bottom Gauls.

316 1/19/2020 7:47:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message Well, it's a gotcha against me. I had no idea that this card existed and what it enables. first game blues. No cards.
315 1/19/2020 7:28:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message I'm surprised. Are you allowed to activate another leader without playing a card??
314 1/19/2020 7:28:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message I have no cards to play. Gaul to play any cards before resolving battle. I think I have Force ratio: 9 CUs + 3 CUs flanking, so 12 vs 4 CUs = +6.
Then +1 for Leader and +1 for flanking, total of +8.
313 1/19/2020 7:23:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message (I am following page 15 example of Campaign)
Activate Numisius with 6 CU will aid my Minor Leader-B.
1st MP: Caere,
2nd MP: Roma (allied, just passing through)
3rd MP: Sutrium (allied, nothing to look at) as flanking force.

312 1/19/2020 6:48:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message I think Etruscans get a +4 drm. 3 for the ratio, 1 for the leader.
311 1/19/2020 6:46:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message The odds seem unlikely, and the chances of getting a -1 drm for a failed avoidance is likely, so I will stand and fight.
310 1/19/2020 6:40:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message 3rd MP: Minor Leader-B with 9 CUs to Clusium.
Gaul in Clusium could attempt avoid battle to Sutrium (Roman, ally to Gaul).
309 1/19/2020 6:39:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message (I don't have any response cards)
308 1/19/2020 6:38:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message Interception falls short anyway... you can proceed.
307 1/19/2020 6:38:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message You are correct, I missed that. There are Response cards that affect interceptions regardless of outcomes.

Message from Gaul:
let's see what happens.
305 1/19/2020 6:34:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message If I am reviewing the rules correctly, I don't think I can make it. I get a +1 for the space being independent (thus "enemy") and I need to get a 1 or less on a single dr to succeed. Does that seem right?
304 1/19/2020 6:33:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Yes, 1 die. I think you need to roll a "1" to succeed.
Interceptions succeed on a modified roll less than or equal to the intercepting commanderís Tactics Rating.
303 1/19/2020 6:27:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message I will attempt to intercept. But I'm unclear, one 1dr?
302 1/19/2020 5:54:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Gaul (Aaron) to decide whether to attempt intercept.
301 1/19/2020 5:53:00 PM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Play Strategy card - Event #34: 3 / Campaign

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
Activate Minor Leader-B in Pisae. Take 9 CU and
1st MP: to Faesulae,
2nd MP: to Arretium.
Gaul's Minor Leader A with 4 CU may attempt interception.
300 1/19/2020 8:57:00 AM 361-348 BC Gaul Message Frank/Etruscan is up next.
299 1/19/2020 8:56:00 AM 361-348 BC Gaul Play Strategy card - Event #33: 3 / Brennus

Message from Gaul:
Brennus appears and accepts the command of Gallic forces in Placentia.
298 1/18/2020 11:04:00 PM 361-348 BC Greek Message I missed your move but I will withdraw inside the city walls.
297 1/18/2020 10:23:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Ted, itís been well over 24 hours so Iím going to assume no response and Aaron is up.
296 1/17/2020 1:59:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Play Strategy card - Operations #5: 1 / Obesus Etruscus

Message from Roman:

Minor leader B to Rome
Claudius with 10 to Neapolis. 3 units there go into city? Any response cards?
295 1/17/2020 12:19:00 AM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message I don't have much to help, sorry.
294 1/16/2020 5:33:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Yeah I'm not necessarily done.
I'm waiting on an e-mail response from Frank.
293 1/16/2020 4:47:00 PM 361-348 BC Gaul Message Farrell, you are still contemplating a continuation of your turn, right? Or is it my go now?

291 1/16/2020 12:42:00 AM 361-348 BC Roman Play Strategy card - Event #21: 2 / Neutral Power Activates

Message from Roman:
Think for starters we will activate Carthage.
Hamiclar and 10 units will attack Kerkouane which has Agathocles and 4 units. 10 v. 4 is +4, equal leaders, defender is +1. So Carthage is +3 at the moment.
Any response to this?
290 1/16/2020 12:12:00 AM 361-348 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Rome to go first.
289 1/15/2020 6:37:00 PM 361-348 BC Roman Message Frank and I have the fewest VP. He breaks ties and thus determines who goes first.

You only reduced 3 loyalty, each of the leaders you kept requires 2. I made the loyalty changes you requested and reduced Tarentum by 1. If you would like to change, please let us know. In the meantime I will do my reinforcements.
267 1/13/2020 7:17:00 PM 373-362 BC Greek Message Looks like I did not plan very well. I will have to permanently remove Timoleon. To keep Agothocles and Dionysius I will reduce Syracuse loyalty by 1 from 2 to 1 and Messina by 2 from 3 to 1.
266 1/13/2020 6:19:00 PM 373-362 BC Roman Message Ted,
you need to reduce loyalty to keep your leaders happy.
