513 5/21/2020 11:55:00 AM 347-336 BC Roman Message Roman reinforcements are received for Roma (2) plus one each for Sutrium, Narnia, Antium, Velitra, and Capua for a total of 7 CUs. I will place 3 in Preneste, 3 in Roma, 1 in Capua.

Now for consuls...
512 5/21/2020 10:55:00 AM 347-336 BC Gaul Message 1 more in Arezzo
511 5/21/2020 10:54:00 AM 347-336 BC Gaul Message 3 in Bologna
510 5/21/2020 10:50:00 AM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Greeks ans Samnites have placed reinforcements. Gaul is next.
509 5/20/2020 6:00:00 PM 347-336 BC Roman Message OK. Reinforcements are placed in descending VP order so should be Greek, E-S, Gaul, Roman last.
508 5/20/2020 5:30:00 PM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message E-S reinforcements: 4CU to Bovianum.
I dropped the T-Gauls reinforcement CU, but not the Carhtage CU, since they can go multiple places. I'll let Rome decide.
507 5/20/2020 4:59:00 PM 347-336 BC Greek Message Its a cumulative VP system, so you got the +1vp for Capua earlier.
Maybe its better to look at it as a score. You determine your net VP spaces each turn and add that to your score. If the net is zero (gains=losses) then your score remains the same. If your net is positive (gains>losses) you go up. If net is negative (gains
506 5/20/2020 4:48:00 PM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Adjust Victory Points Roman: from 1 to 1
Greek: from 7 to 8
Etruscan-Samnite: from 8 to 6
Gaul: from 7 to 5
505 5/20/2020 4:47:00 PM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Ok, I think I see. I was at 8VP, lost Capua but simply don't get a +1VP for that city; but i am -2VP for my two lost "home keys."
504 5/20/2020 2:42:00 PM 347-336 BC Roman Message E-S home VP spaces: down 2 (Pisea, Fregelle). No other VP spaces controlled by E-S so the change this turn is -2 VP from last turn's running total.
503 5/20/2020 2:23:00 PM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Thanks, Frank, I understood that (originally not, I forgot that Capua was supposed to be yours all along).

But what about Tarqunii? I still hold that...but I always did, so I don't get bonus points now for it, right? And I do lose VP for Pisae and Fregellae... so down from 7 to 5?
502 5/20/2020 2:16:00 PM 347-336 BC Roman Message Aaron, scoring is based on primarily on home VP space plus control of other VP spaces (except for the Gauls). We need to look at those two factors then adjust the cumulative VP count. We do not need to compare the change from last turn.

5.8.1 Adjust VP
Each player gains 1 VP for each victory space he controls outside
his home area and loses 1 VP for each home victory space he fails
to control.
ē These adjustments are cumulative; a player accumulates VP for
each turn that he controls a victory point space and loses VP
for each turn that he does not control one of his victory point
spaces.

The Roman now controls all of his home VP spaces and no other VP spaces. So the VP change for me this turn is 0. I was at 1 VP starting the turn, ending the turn I will be at 1 VP.
501 5/20/2020 2:07:00 PM 347-336 BC Greek Message I did reduce my support.
I didn't do minor power reinforcements because I don't control those, right?
Shouldn't the person in last place do those?
500 5/20/2020 2:04:00 PM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message So scoring question for the table: Rome has cited that the E-S is down 2VP (fregellae and Pisae) but up one for Tarquinii... this doesn't add up, becuase Tarquinii is already an Etruscan home city, right? In other words, E-S is -2VP this turn (as I originally stated). But I might be missing something? The main point is that E-S and Gaul are both at 5VP. Therefore Gaul is up to choose if E-S or himself get to place next reinforcements.
Greeks are also up to place minor power reinforcements and reduce his city support.
499 5/20/2020 1:45:00 PM 347-336 BC Greek Message Guess I'll do my reinforcements
1 CU to Neapolis.
4 CU to Syracuse.

5 paydays, -2 to Rhegium, -2 to Tarrentum, -1 to Messana
498 5/19/2020 5:53:00 PM 347-336 BC Roman Message I will let alliances end.
497 5/19/2020 5:21:00 PM 347-336 BC Greek Message Are we on to alliance phase?
I'll offer to keep my alliance with Rome going.
496 5/19/2020 1:50:00 PM 347-336 BC Roman Message Ted, you are correct. I forgot that aspect of Gaul VP scoring.
495 5/19/2020 1:47:00 PM 347-336 BC Gaul Message I don't get a VP for Pisa. It is a -1 for Estruscan but not a +1 for Gaul.
494 5/19/2020 1:45:00 PM 347-336 BC Roman Message The way I look at scoring, the Roman now controls all of his home VP spaces, no others, so is at 0 VP for the turn. So my total for the game is still at 1 VP, not 2 VP.

Greece owns all his home VP spaces and Fregellae so is +1 VP this turn.

Gauls are down two home VP spaces Genua and Patavium, plus 1 for Pisae, so at -1 VP for the turn.

E-S is down 2 home VP spaces Fregellae and Pisae, plus 1 for Tarquinii, so is at -1 VP for the turn.
493 5/19/2020 8:45:00 AM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message My bad-- that space would become independent due to isolation and not go to anyone. So I'll go with the original determination.
492 5/19/2020 8:44:00 AM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message OK. I'll choose for Gaul to lose 2CU in Sena Gallica. That is +1VP for Etruscans-Samnites.
491 5/19/2020 8:38:00 AM 347-336 BC Gaul Message The first two rolls were for my home spaces. Thatís all I knew about. They both had 2 CUs and as I stated all units died. The second two were the others. It doesnít matter which loses 2.
490 5/19/2020 8:36:00 AM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Seeing no isolation, we go to scoring.

Etruscans-Samnites: lost Capua for -1, still not kolding Fregellae or Pisae, -2 --> 5VP.
Gauls: not holding Patavium or Genua for -2--> 5VP.
Greeks: +1 for Fregellae--> 8VP
Rome: +1 for Capua--> 2VP.
489 5/19/2020 8:32:00 AM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message It's a little questionable that Gaul is rolling in groups, which allow us to chose where potential attrition happens. I would request to do it with more specific info from here on out.
Let's assume that attrition losses were 1CU in Sena Gallica and 2CU in Vetulonia.
Gaul claims control of Sena Gallica in the surrender phase.

487 5/18/2020 11:25:00 PM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Ted, I see four locations where you suffer attrition. I assume you meant Patavia and Genua, you also need to roll for Sena Gallica and Vetulonia (both otherwise under Etruscan control).
486 5/18/2020 10:38:00 PM 347-336 BC Gaul Message Holy crap my dice have sucked ass. My entire turn was a failure. I lose all 4 units.

484 5/18/2020 10:30:00 PM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Gaul is in the only nation with attrition, surrender. He can take both simultaneously. We can then determine isolation and scoring.

Frank?
481 5/18/2020 3:39:00 PM 347-336 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message I take that to be the end of the action phase; Greeks and then Rome can declare if they wish to use a DT!! card for an extra impulse. E-S and Gauls have used their own DT!! cards up.
