56 2/10/2021 9:16:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Lion Message I'm still in. Let me know when you find someone.
H
55 2/9/2021 7:07:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message all, Mark is dropping out of the game.
Yannick, Henry, i will see if i can find another person if you are still interested to play
54 2/3/2021 10:22:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message ok. so here we go. please, look at emails as i will send the final setup file vsav. start from there with Horse [red], draw your card, then we go around to each player [we need to draw cards for everyone as there may be response cards] before horse starts again. so Yannick, over to you
53 2/3/2021 9:59:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Lion Message agreed
52 2/3/2021 8:59:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message hello - responded over email.
we can eitehr keep cards for this turn and draw in vassal from next or we can re-start the turn. we can keep the generals and just redraw the cards in vassal. so going back to my final setup file. the latter is neater
51 2/3/2021 8:35:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Lion Message So do we keep the cards we have or redraw? My opening move was based on my hand....
50 2/3/2021 8:31:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message Ok. Mark suggested we just use cards in Vassal as it is more consistent. I agree. We just use this as a chat forum and die rolling.
All agreed?
49 2/3/2021 8:19:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message Not to mention there are extra cards in 3rd ed that are not in 1st ed.

I dunno, this is tough.
48 2/3/2021 4:07:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message i agree.
the other option is to use the number on the cards in ACTS but then refers to the 3rd edition manifest - but it would be confusing
finally one other option would be to use cards in Vassal and use ACTS just for communications and dice rolling
47 2/3/2021 2:34:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message If we're using 3rd ed rules with 1st ed cards, then there's many cards that are differently balanced and who just work differently in the rules compared to now.

I dunno, I hadn't played successors on ACTS in ages and I guess now I know why.
46 2/3/2021 2:24:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message Yes the idea was to use 3d edition rules with 1st edition cards but I can see it can get messy.
Other option is to use 3rd edition cards. But how do we deal with the ACTS card draw? We simply look at the card number? It can get confusing... or shall we use cards in Vassal? Suggestion welcome
Thanks
45 2/2/2021 7:41:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message For instance, using 3 ops for a Forced March like you just did is an addition of 2nd and 3rd ed. Or are we just using the cards from 1st ed but the rules of 3rd ed?
44 2/2/2021 7:38:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message I don't know that we can play 1st ed - the living rules are for 3rd ed, and they mention changes to the tyche cards that I've never dealt with.
43 2/2/2021 7:29:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message yannick, yes the file i uploaded has both 1st and 3rd edition but the numbers are for third edition. it's confusing

hence we should use the ACTS card manifest in the link as it is the 1st edition
42 2/2/2021 7:27:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message uploaded.
Asp - i moved Ptolomy to Memphis as that it's his starting place. you need to remove the card back onto your mat
thanks

Message from Sunburst:
roll for movement
40 2/2/2021 7:22:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Play Strategy card as Operations #54: 3 / Thessalonice Offers Marriage

Message from Sunburst:
play to move craterus 3 spaces
39 2/2/2021 7:19:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message The ACTS card manifest Filippo linked to seems to be Ed 1. According to the file in the drop box, in Ed 3, the elephant card is not a bonus, but a 2-CPs event.

For the activation, it's just been a while since I played successors :) disregard. But I did seem to have missed my own movement phase, so I will place a mercenary with antipater on my next activation.
38 2/2/2021 7:18:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message all. first, the placement of mercenary is correct, as Lion forgo the movement and can place 1M. that's fine
in terms of cards i thought too we were using the 3rd edition but this module is using the 1st edition cards... i own the 3rd edition and i checked. My cards have different text.
the vassal is for the third edition [though not sure it makes too much difference for the vassal file]
if we want to continue to use ACTS we have to carry on with the 1st edition cards.
shame as i prefer the cards in the third editon but that's the way it is#
i am happy to carry on
37 2/2/2021 5:10:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Lion Message If you don't move then 1M can be raised, is this not so?
36 2/2/2021 5:10:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Lion Message This is on the card.

37 1 / Elephants
Bonus
35 2/2/2021 5:01:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message Wait, which version are we playing?

I thought we were playing 3rd ed. That card should be a normal event (not a bonus) which places 1 elephant with a friendly army in Asia, correct? And there should be no activation of a general (and therefore no mercenary). Or am I missing something?
34 2/2/2021 4:22:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Lion Message Sun is up I think.

33 2/2/2021 4:20:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Lion Message Amend that: Place the 1M into Halicarnasus

File up.
32 2/2/2021 4:19:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Lion Play Strategy card as Event #37: 1 / Elephants

Message from Lion:
Surrender: None

Tyche: 1E to Antigonus and use bonus to place PC in Halicarnasus, take control and fleet.

Movement: None, raise 1M with Antigonus

Forage: None
31 2/2/2021 3:30:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message New file in
30 2/2/2021 3:12:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message Hyrcania or Atropatene - I choose Atropatene. Since it's already full, it spills over on an adjacent space - Armenia. To Amida.

Roll on unrest table
28 2/2/2021 3:07:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Play Strategy card as Event #22: 3 / Unrest

Message from Horse:
I'll actually start by playing Unrest, which is a bonus card. I'll place 2 pcs in Percis, 1 in Zachatara. Take control of Percis.
27 2/2/2021 3:06:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Return Strategy card to hand #38: 4 / Greek Colonist in Asia

Message from Horse:
26 2/2/2021 1:59:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message Absolutely fine with that. Go ahead and redo your move
25 2/2/2021 1:12:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Lion Message I have no issue with that
24 2/2/2021 1:04:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message Urgh, this is the problem with not having the text for cards. I couldn't find "Greek colonist in asia" in the card manifest, and I thought it was the "23 000 greek soldiers abandon their colony."

Would anyone mind if I walk back my move? I would use that card as an event for the 2 mercernaries instead.
23 2/2/2021 7:18:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message there is one in ACTS
http://acts.warhorsesim.com/resources/successor_cards.html
i can uploada file that has the differences between 1st and 3rd edition [and so has all cards for 3rd edition...]
22 2/1/2021 8:35:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Lion Message Can someone point me to a good card manifest? I'm used to card text in ACTS...
21 2/1/2021 8:09:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Message File is in! Lion up.

Asp should click "draw general" from the card display so they go on their display. I can't affect another player's display.
20 2/1/2021 8:01:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Play Strategy card as Operations #38: 4 / Greek Colonist in Asia

Message from Horse:
PCs in Amardi, Zadracharta, Pasagarde, Persepolis. Take control of Persis and Hyrcania.
19 2/1/2021 7:00:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message we are ready to go.
Asp is usurper
order of play this turn: Horse, Lion, Sunburst, Asp
so Horse is up first
18 1/31/2021 1:47:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Sunburst Message Mark. Asp needs to do setup on Vassal. In dropbox there is 003 file, the latest. All three others have drawn generals and done setup.
Once we all have done that, we will see who has most VPs and thus be labelled Usurper and who has least VPs and thus start.
17 1/31/2021 10:35:00 AM 323 - 320 BC Asp Message What do I do now, I discarded a general and now I didn't draw a new one.
