Republic of Rome: Game 805 Journal

Time Turn Player Title Entry
5/24/2018 6:34:00 PM 4 Hand Message Donít we have a governorship to assign?
You canít adjourn before doing that.
5/23/2018 5:04:00 PM 4 Moon Message OK then.

After due consideration, no proposal is put forward. Senate is adjourned.

24 hrs period begins now.
5/22/2018 9:25:00 PM 4 Hand Message Whats going on?
Are people having secret talks?
Is this game dead?
5/20/2018 11:28:00 PM 4 Hand Message Andras you are up.
5/16/2018 11:04:00 AM 4 Moon Message Dear fellow senators,

Before putting any proposals before this esteemed, I would like to hear views on the challenge faced by Rome and how to counter theme.

If you have any proposals, please kindly share them within the next 24 hrs.
5/15/2018 2:25:00 AM 4 Crown Message Andras, senators are waiting for your considerations, there are some wars unprosecuted or concessions to assign.

What do you propose ?
5/13/2018 3:47:00 AM 4 Crown Message Cato/Moon is up to complete the Senate phase.

Andras is your turn
5/13/2018 3:44:00 AM 4 Crown Message Of course I vote yes, so Aemilius prosecution is successful.

Tax Farmer 4 goes to Forum.
No Influences or popularity to lose.
5/12/2018 12:50:00 PM 4 Wreath Message Iím going to vote yes of course. So unless nando wants to veto his one measure it resolves.
5/12/2018 11:41:00 AM 4 Hand Message Aye.
5/12/2018 4:13:00 AM 4 Crown Message Farrell next to vote
5/12/2018 4:10:00 AM 4 Moon Message Aye
5/12/2018 12:56:00 AM 4 Hand Message Andras itís your vote.
5/10/2018 10:09:00 PM 4 Hand Message Moon up to vote.
5/10/2018 4:13:00 PM 4 Eagle Message Eagle votes for the prosecution.
5/9/2018 5:37:00 AM 4 Crown Message Andrew up to vote for the prosecution
5/9/2018 5:37:00 AM 4 Crown Message Jeff voted opposed by email to the prosecution of Aemilius.

I send the umpteenth request to use the message forum in ACTS for official communications.

5/8/2018 3:20:00 AM 4 Crown Message Jeff up to vote
5/7/2018 1:43:00 PM 4 Wreath Message Sure. Wreath does all the work.

The annual prosecution of the traitor faction is a fun tradition. If convicted he will lose his concession and that will be reassigned to a faction that does not want Rome to fall.

Vote order is Shield, Eagle, Moon, Hand, Crown, Wreath
5/7/2018 3:00:00 AM 4 Crown Message well, then Ryan
is your Acilius available for the role of prosecutor ?

5/7/2018 2:51:00 AM 4 Eagle Message We thank you for the opportunity to be lead prosecution in this action however, our commitments are too great at this time and thus we will not be in a position to accept this role. Please seek another to prosecute at this time!
5/6/2018 5:16:00 AM 4 Crown Message Andrew, you should manage the prosecution.
5/4/2018 10:05:00 PM 4 Hand Message Andrew is up to run prosecution.
5/3/2018 2:45:00 AM 4 Crown Message Let's see.
Rome is subjected to multiple calamities (wars, evil omens, manpower shortage,...)
We asked for a turn of peace and I suppose that we need a turn of peace.
But some voices of corruption reached my ears, so I have to submit to justice a senator, wha has the right to prove his innocence.

We ask a minor prosecution for Aemilius.
Plautius of Eagle may prosecute Aemilius.
5/2/2018 12:02:00 AM 4 Hand Message So Nando is up for Prosecutions now.
5/1/2018 4:59:00 PM 4 Moon Message Moon faction votes yes.

Papirius is HRAO.
4/30/2018 3:47:00 PM 4 Crown Message Andras up to complete voting.
4/30/2018 3:46:00 PM 4 Crown Message email from Jeff:
"Shield will vote no."
4/28/2018 10:47:00 AM 4 Crown Message Crown vote yes

Jeff/Shield next
4/28/2018 5:19:00 AM 4 Eagle Message Eagles agrees...onward we go!
4/27/2018 6:20:00 PM 4 Hand Message Since Nando agreed with the turn of peace which is only binding against the participants, I vote yes.
Eagle up,
4/27/2018 5:58:00 PM 4 Wreath Message Approve.

Farrell is up.
4/27/2018 5:19:00 PM 4 Moon Message Apologies, I used the excel in DB but now it makes sense that the green colour was missing from next to his name...

Anyway, Papirius (11) of Crown is the candidate.

voting order is: wreath, hand, eagle, crown, shield, moon
4/27/2018 5:03:00 PM 4 Hand Message Invalid nomination, back to Andras to correct.
4/27/2018 3:56:00 PM 4 Wreath Message Against.

Farrell is up.
4/27/2018 3:02:00 PM 4 Moon Message Calpurnius (16) of Shield is nominated for censor.

voting order is: wreath, hand, eagle, shield, crown, moon
4/25/2018 1:54:00 PM 4 Moon Message apologies, need some more time
4/24/2018 2:02:00 AM 4 Crown Message Cato is the new HRAO

Andras up to his proposals
4/24/2018 2:01:00 AM 4 Crown Message Andrew wrote:
"Happy to be Field Consul, will proceed under this assumption."
4/24/2018 12:32:00 AM 4 Hand Message invoking 48 hour rule and naming Cato RC and Flaminus FC. :)
4/23/2018 2:00:00 AM 4 Crown Message Flaminius and Cato are new counsels.
Please, Andras and Andrew, you should decide your roles

4/21/2018 10:42:00 AM 4 Wreath Message I support. Andras and Andrew can now decide on their roles.
4/21/2018 3:23:00 AM 4 Moon Message Apologies... I agree with the proposal
4/21/2018 3:21:00 AM 4 Crown Message Andras, it's your turn!
4/19/2018 2:47:00 AM 4 Crown Message Andras next to vote
4/19/2018 1:57:00 AM 4 Eagle Message Eagle too will vote for a quiet life this turn, hope the omens improve for next year or we shall all face troubled times again.
4/18/2018 2:11:00 AM 4 Crown Message Andrew next for voting
4/18/2018 2:09:00 AM 4 Crown Message I agree on Wreath proposal
4/17/2018 1:55:00 PM 4 Hand Message How do you vote, nando?
4/17/2018 2:21:00 AM 4 Crown Message Sorry guys, I was in trouble for work this days.
But I agree definitely with Farrell, I vote for a turn of peace, really hard to fight any wars this turn.

4/16/2018 12:07:00 PM 4 Hand Message Nobody seemed to like my idea. And nobody else is talking.
So I vote against till people start communicating with me.
4/16/2018 10:21:00 AM 4 Shield Message Against
4/14/2018 10:09:00 PM 4 Hand Message Given the state of affairs after Fabius awful speech I propose a one turn peace. Iím not sure why he brought Gauls to the speech and said that we should all aspire to be like them. The crowd was not amused.
So no prosecutions, no assassinations, no persuasion attempts so we can all buy games. I donít think we can fight any of those wars this turn.
4/14/2018 3:12:00 PM 4 Wreath Message Now for senate, we nominate Flaminius of Eagle and Cato of moon for cousels.

Vote order is shield, Hand, Crown, Eagle, Moon, Wreath
4/14/2018 3:08:00 PM 4 Wreath Message Oh and evil omens -1. So there is a mans power shortage as well!
4/14/2018 2:57:00 PM 4 Wreath Message Disaster! +5 unrest.

Oops sorry,mcompletely forgot about the evil omens issue! Rolling now and hoping for anything but a 1.
4/11/2018 8:28:00 PM 4 Hand Message Spending 5 is not an automatic knight since we have evil omens and you are at a minus 1.
You need to roll and not roll a 1.
4/11/2018 5:30:00 PM 4 Wreath Message There are now 10 cards left. Jeff should roll a d10 if he has to draw. On a 1, the first Punic returns instead.

Andrew should have rolled an d11 but since he did not roll a 12, there is not issue.
4/11/2018 5:16:00 PM 4 Eagle Message Shield is up I think!
4/11/2018 5:14:00 PM 4 Eagle Message That'll do for Eagle.
4/11/2018 5:11:00 PM 4 Eagle Message Plautius will spend 5t to attract a Knight which is an automatic result. So Plautius gains a Knight.

4/9/2018 11:30:00 PM 4 Wreath Message He has plenty. his revenue this turn was not updated in the vassal file.
4/9/2018 9:02:00 PM 4 Hand Message So thats evil omens which means Valerius needs to pay 20, but i only count 19, whic means the faction treasury has to pay 11. If i'm not mistaken.

Initiative for Wreath.
4/5/2018 6:05:00 PM 4 Wreath Message That brings us to the forum phase. There is an issue though. The acts module does not have a way of reflecting the 1st Punic war card that was returned to the deck. Nando and I agreed on a solution. We determined there are 12 cards left in the deck and one of them is the 1st Punic. So, if you are required to draw a card instead roll an X sided die where X is the cards remaining in the deck. If you roll a one donít draw a card and the 1st Punic returns.
4/5/2018 5:56:00 PM 4 Shield Give random Strategy card to Crown Message from Shield:
Sorry missed that, having to much fun diving. Not wrapping up and heading home until sometime next week. Doing a night dive tonight, need the practice on this one. Kind of a waste of a good card since your getting the most common card in the deck back. It will also cost you the cards I was going to slide you in the future sadly enough. On the bright side it gives the assassins an open field. :-)
4/5/2018 2:09:00 PM 4 Crown Message Jeff, have you finished your diving activity ?
I am still waiting for a card from you...
4/4/2018 6:36:00 PM 4 Wreath Message Email from shield said to put his earnings in the faction treasury.

Shield/Jeff still has to give Crown a random card in acts. Then we can move onto the forum phase.
4/4/2018 12:32:00 PM 4 Moon Message tha's 13 in total.

5 to treasury
4/2/2018 4:14:00 AM 4 Eagle Message Julius was a broken man, ever since he had heard that he had been over looked when military offices were being allocated; his mission in life had seemed worthless. It broke his heart and he died feeling as if he were a wasted resource!
4/2/2018 12:46:00 AM 4 Wreath Message Andras is up for revenue.

3/29/2018 6:58:00 PM 3 Wreath Message We enter the revolution phase. It starts with me, but I have a trade offer out so I will wait till the morning.
3/29/2018 6:51:00 PM 3 Wreath Message Another veteran is added. So two and half wars won and our total strength only went down by one. Your faith in Dicator Fabius has been rewarded. Rome is saved.

Our treasury goes up 18 for Punic, 20 for Gallic and 10 for Illyrian for a total of 48. Unrest goes down by 2 (maybe 3?).
3/29/2018 6:46:00 PM 3 Wreath Message Manilus is victorious with no casualties! His popularity and influence go up by 2.

The first war is the Gallic war. We have a +6. D is 13 and S is 15.
3/29/2018 6:33:00 PM 3 Wreath Message We support. That sends the HRAO away and adjourns the senate. Fair warning was given for tribunes during the deploy announcement.

As the senate ends that triggers the New Alliance event. I will choose to put the 1st Punic back in the back in hopes that it stays there and one or both of the Carthaginian leaders age out in the forum phase.

There is an issue however. This Acts module is pretty basic and there is no way that I can see to add the war back into the deck. We will have roll a die to see if comes up. More to that if we survive the combat phase, which I will do now.
3/29/2018 6:15:00 PM 3 Moon Message Moon votes yes.

3/28/2018 10:57:00 AM 3 Crown Message Jeff up to vote
3/28/2018 9:36:00 AM 3 Wreath Message I now propose eliminating two external threats:

Deploy Dictator Fabius (M: 4) and his Master of Horse (M:2) with 8 regular Legions and 1 veteran legion to fight the 1st Gallic War (which is a 10/0, so +6 to DR)

Deploy Field Cousel Manlius (M: 3) with 5 regular legions, 1 veteran legion and 2 fleets to fight the 2nd Illyrian War (which is a 4/2, so +6 to DR)

This action will send away the HRAO and end the Senate Phase, so anyone can play a Tribune before or during their vote to suspend this vote and deal with some other matter. There can be no vetoes since proposed by a dictator.

Vote order is Shield, Hand, Crown, Eagle, Moon, Wreath.

If successful, that will end the Senate phase and I will trigger the New Alliance event before combat.
3/28/2018 9:34:00 AM 3 Wreath Message Approve, so it passes. New game file uploaded.

3/27/2018 9:28:00 AM 3 Crown Message remembering that we are voting for concession assignment.
Crown votes in support
3/27/2018 8:57:00 AM 3 Shield Message Shield will vote no.

As a side note I believe the current total is 15 Legions not 17.

There were 10 Regular and 2 Veterans & 3 Regular [+2 Fleets] were added.

3/27/2018 8:00:00 AM 3 Wreath Message There will be four wars. Roll only once and roll bad, the game is over. Two wars gives us a chance.
3/27/2018 2:01:00 AM 3 Crown Message Jeff next to vote
3/27/2018 1:21:00 AM 3 Hand Message Twice the Wars means twice the casualties or more since we wonít be rolling with as good of multiplier.
Donít tell me I voted too quick. You put me second and I tried talking to you and waited a day. Take some responsibility instead of pawning it off on others.
3/27/2018 12:54:00 AM 3 Wreath Message Each war we ignore costs us 20T and an unrest which costs 8T to remove with sponsored games. So we effectively lose 3 legions per war we ignore. We wonít have a dictator every turn so we have to take advantage while we can. Sorry you werenít part of the deal, you voted too quick.
3/26/2018 11:48:00 PM 3 Hand Message Yes I will be voting no.
Its obvious a deal has been struck and I suggest that unless you are part of the deal, you vote no on these self serving proposals that are going to endanger the republic when we lose a ton of legions trying to fight two wars when only one is needed.
3/26/2018 7:17:00 PM 3 Wreath Message Fair enough then we will first vote on the two concessions together then vote on the two wars.

Voting order is the same. We can assume shield and hand are noís so letís save a couple days and skip to Crown, Eagle, Moon and Weeath.
3/26/2018 7:09:00 PM 3 Hand Message This proposals is full of the Roman equivalent of pork and violates the rules of the senate as per 1.09.6 which states that each proposal may only consist of one kind of proposal at a time although like kind proposals may be grouped sending troops to war and giving out concessions are clearly two different types. One would hope that this sort of self serving proposal would be defeated anyway.
3/26/2018 6:50:00 PM 3 Wreath Message I approve, of course. So it passes and Rome now has a land strength of 17 and 2 fleets.

Rome is beginning to fall. It very nearly did last year. Unbelievably, some within our ranks are conspiring with our enemies and actively trying to bring down the republic. The time to act is now. We must reduce multiple of our enemies simultaneously, as they each deplete our annual income. We must expand our republic and we must put the management of our resources in responsible hands. So I propose the four part Omnibus Land Management and Expansion Act:

Assign the Tax Farmers 1 concession in the forum to the honorable Papirius of Crown

Assign the Tax Farmers 2 concession in the forum to the virtuous Manlius of Wreath

Deploy Dictator Fabius (M: 4) and his Master of Horse (M:2) with 8 regular Legions and 1 veteran legion to fight the 1st Gallic War (which is a 10/0, so +6 to DR)

Deploy Field Cousel Manlius (M: 3) with 5 regular legions, 1 veteran legion and 2 fleets to fight the 2nd Illyrian War (which is a 4/2, so +6 to DR)

I would like to fight just one of these wars with overwhelming force, but we have too many wars and have a faction openly betraying Rome, so we must strike while we have a dictator in power.

This action will send away the HRAO and end the Senate Phase, so anyone can play a Tribune before or during their vote to suspend this vote and deal with some other matter. There can be no vetoes since proposed by a dictator.

Vote order is Shield, Hand, Crown, Eagle, Moon, Wreath.

If successful, that will end the Senate phase and I will trigger the New Alliance event before combat.
3/26/2018 10:02:00 AM 3 Crown Message Ryan next and last
3/26/2018 10:02:00 AM 3 Crown Message Crown votes for support
3/26/2018 10:02:00 AM 3 Crown Message from Andras email:
"Moon faction will support this plan"
3/26/2018 4:20:00 AM 3 Eagle Message Although concerned about two wars weakly rather rather than one war decisively, I can see the merits of trying to clear the way so that we can proactively deal with the course of Rome's future rather than being held hostage to the myriad of conflicts that encompass us at this time. Therefore, with some reservation, Eagle votes for the motion.
3/25/2018 2:57:00 PM 3 Crown Message Andrew next
3/25/2018 2:47:00 PM 3 Hand Message I donít know why we are building fleets except to line the pockets of Wreath and so he can fight two wars and get all the glory.
We should just fight the one that requires no fleets. Our allies will deal with the other.
Opposed.
3/25/2018 2:19:00 PM 3 Crown Message Jeff opposed

Next Farrell
3/24/2018 1:41:00 PM 3 Wreath Message Jeff is up to vote.
3/24/2018 1:41:00 PM 3 Wreath Message Looks like you are right. 12 + 2. Same vote however. We should win the two wars with the same raise.
3/24/2018 1:37:00 PM 3 Wreath Message 4 died in the battle, right
3/24/2018 1:34:00 PM 3 Hand Message I thought we went over this on 3/10 that there should be 12 legions?
3/24/2018 12:30:00 PM 3 Wreath Message The first order of business is the raising of troops. I proposed we raise 3 Legions and 2 Fleets.

Voting order is Shield, Hand, Eagle, Moon, Crown, Wreath
3/24/2018 12:11:00 PM 3 Wreath Message Thank you for your wise censorship, Flaminius. All is well, as many of you have heard, I was "attacked" in the market. In fact, I did had a rather slovenly fellow run at me with a shiny, new knife. The simpleton tripped over a goat and fell in a manure pit. All of the citizens in the market were in hysterics of laughter. Leaving his expensive knife behind, he jumped into a canal and swam away in a panic. I would have had the guards give chase, but the oaf seemed perfectly harmless and the people enjoyed the show. The incompetence of the whole thing felt like last yearís senate proceedings! So much so, I wonder if the two were linked!

As you may have discerned in the rambling and ultimately disastrous State of Rome speech, we face many challenges. We have five wars. We have only eight regular legions and two veteran legions (the current Vassel file had too many). We only have 58T in the treasury. Fortunately, my late father formed some new alliances that will help delay one of our current wars. Of the four remaining conflicts, two can be won this turn with the godsí will Ė Gaul and Illyria. I will ask for the support during these troubling times.

3/24/2018 3:30:00 AM 3 Eagle Message Flaminius has ended his prosecution and in reflection can see no benefit from bringing further prosecutions at this stage to tribunal. I hand back to our new Dictator Fabius to continue the work of the Senate, if he has recovered from his recent tussle with unknown assassins.
3/23/2018 6:54:00 PM 3 Wreath Message He would have to veto when he was up to veto. You are deee to move on. I will make a file shortly.
3/23/2018 6:52:00 PM 3 Eagle Message Fair point I just thought I would leave a chance for Calpurnius to veto the prosecution or time for others to do stuff...but happy to proceed if not.
3/23/2018 6:16:00 PM 3 Eagle Message I Flaminius Censor of Rome will await confirmation that the criminal Calpurius has be dealt with and is contrite. I will then consider whether further charges will made.
3/23/2018 6:13:00 PM 3 Eagle Message A cuffufle in the Senate...accusations of bladed assassins, what has Rome come to that unnamed thugs can assault us in own Senate. It is clear that measures must be taken and true justice meated out!

Eagle votes for the prosecution and I believe that the prosecution is carried and Calpurnius will be publically stripped of his Prior Consul status and will be no doubt be diminished in the eyes of those in Rome. What a sorry state of affairs, I hope that something constructive will come of this and the faction will be able to recover from this set back.
3/23/2018 3:56:00 PM 3 Wreath Message Your rolling is as bad as your diplomacy.

Message from Shield:
Jeff> - Shortly before midnight Terentius summons a shadowy figure to his chambers.
- Leaving after a short conversation, the man slips quietly into the night and the household settles down.
- The following morning as Fabius the newly minted dictator strolls through the marketplace thinking himself beyond the reach of the masses, a man slides past him.
- In the process burying a dagger to the hilt in Fabius's stomach, before slipping away into the crowds.

- Now to see if we slip past the guards and escape free and clear.
- I'll wait to roll until we see if Fabius has wisely hired some body guards.
3/23/2018 1:49:00 PM 3 Wreath Message Andrew/Eagle is up for the final vote on the shield minor.

As censor, he may then issue another minor if he chooses.
3/23/2018 7:07:00 AM 3 Moon Message Moon faction votes for the prosecution.
3/22/2018 5:03:00 PM 3 Hand Message This seems like a minor slap on the wrist given his actions almost caused the fall of the republic and all of our deaths, and yet he still threatens to side with the barbarian hordes over his people.
Take your punishment as a true Roman.
Hand faction votes in favor.
3/22/2018 4:53:00 PM 3 Wreath Message Wreath does not cave to threats and childish tantrums like our dear friends in Crown. Perhaps because we are warriors and not merchants.

We fully support the efforts of the noble Eagle and wise Moon to punish the efforts of Shield, the faction that openly tried to destroy the Republic!
3/22/2018 2:53:00 PM 3 Crown Message Ryan next
3/22/2018 2:52:00 PM 3 Crown Message We agree with Jeff's point of view.

It seems to be a delicate time for the future of Rome, we have to face a lot of enemies pressing around our borders.
It needs that we stay unit and concentrate our efforts against the real enemies.

So we vote against prosecution.
3/22/2018 2:49:00 PM 3 Crown Message Reporting Jeff's speech:
"We will vote no of course.

However we should mention that by placing Shield in the position of having only Kingmaker options we will be paying attention to the voting.

I will also mention that at this point that I will not rule out playing to assist the barbarians if I feel it is needed. After all we might as well make the punishment actual match the crime. Besides it will make for a new approach to the game that I have not tried before. :-)

Regards, Jeff"

3/22/2018 3:24:00 AM 3 Crown Message Jeff up for supporting or not prosecution
3/21/2018 3:42:00 PM 3 Moon Message Fellow Senators, Honourable Patres,

Moon faction has been called upon to prosecute and remedy a wrongdoing.

Since the foundation of our beloved Civitas, we have been constantly threatened by barbarians from near and far. Calpurnius of Shield, Prior Rome Consul, however, failed to comply with his duties to propose and have brought actions to protect the Republic. He has brought nothing but shame to the office. It is only by a divine intervention by Fortuna and the wise Senator Cato, with the involvement of the late Proconsul Fabius, which saved the day.

Now, it is for the Senate to decide whether Calpurnius should be condemned for miserably failing to perform his duties.

Ceterum censeo, Calpurnius should be punished.

The voting order will be Shield, Crown, Wreath, Hand, Moon and Eagle.
3/20/2018 11:01:00 AM 3 Crown Message Quinctus (Andras) up to prosecute or not Calpurnius
3/19/2018 4:40:00 PM 3 Eagle Message I will leave time for Quinctius to present the case against Calpurnius and once done I will call for votes to be made as to the guilt or otherwise of Prior Consul Calpurnius of Shield.

The voting order will be Shield, Crown, Wreath, Hand, Moon and Eagle.
3/19/2018 4:38:00 PM 3 Eagle Message Flaminius of Eagle will bring an action against our ex Rome Consul for dereliction of duty in that he failed to prepare and enact a full and meaningful opportunity to address the issues that face the Senate and people of Rome and that if a tribune of the people along with Senator Cato had not forced the issue the Senate would have failed to provide Proconsul Fabius the means to end our war in Syria with a victory that Rome very much needed! Therefore Flaminius of Eagle calls Quinctius of Moon to bring a minor prosecution against Calpurnius of Shield, Prior Rome Consul. I will hand over proceedings to Quinctius to bring the case to tribunal.
3/19/2018 10:13:00 AM 3 Wreath Message That is correct
3/19/2018 10:05:00 AM 3 Eagle Message So it is Fabius who is Dictator and it is Fabius who has nominated Flaminius as the Censor elect? On the basis of that then Eagle will vote for the nomination and immediately start work upon bringing a case to tribunal.
3/19/2018 9:38:00 AM 3 Wreath Message The two cousels agreed to appoint a dictator. It is automatic.

Wreath supports Flaminius. Assuming Andrew supports himself he is now up for censor duties.
3/19/2018 3:51:00 AM 3 Eagle Message Point of Order, is it the Dictator Fabius who has appointed a Master of Horse and is it Dictor Fabius who has put forth the proposal for Flaminius to become Censor. I ask as I believe we have to appoint a Dictor first and then he becomes HRAO.
3/19/2018 3:36:00 AM 3 Crown Message Support

3/17/2018 6:12:00 PM 3 Wreath Message We accept the nomination. We make acelius our master of horse.

Eagles words are not unfair, House Fabius must prove successful in the upcoming war. Due to his candor, we nominate Flaminius of Eagle to be censor.

Order is Jeff, Farrell, Andras, Nando, Andrew, Ryan
3/17/2018 3:17:00 PM 3 Eagle Message Fabius the Younger is not tried and tested; his father, that is a different matter,he did fight, he was successful eventually after losing Rome eight legions and a number of fleets... And then he died, so what will the new Fabius bring to Rome, how many more fine troops will be expended to sustain the Fabian military pedigree?
3/17/2018 11:42:00 AM 3 Crown Message Thanks dear senators of Rome for you support,
Manlius and Papirius are the new consuls.
we know the situation is really rough for the Republic, and we have a lot of enemies pressing on our borders.
We also know that we were elected not for our military skills, but for our wisdom.
Talking to my colleague consul, I want suggest you to nominate a Dictator to militarly manage this moment.
I suggest you the name of Fabius that has already showed his skills on field.
I suggest you to accept the office of FIeld Consul for Manlius and Papirius will become the new Rome Consul


3/17/2018 9:17:00 AM 3 Shield Message Shield votes in support making it 36 for and 24 against.

The Baton passes.....
3/17/2018 5:48:00 AM 3 Eagle Message I believe there are 60 votes in the Senate currently and 54 votes have been cast; 30 for the nomination and 24 against the nomination. Is that correct? If so Sheild is yet to vote I believe.
3/17/2018 4:49:00 AM 3 Eagle Message Sorry just trying to catch up with stuff. I have adjusted the current log 33 to show the correct money allocation for Eagle and the correct vote count for Eagle. It is under log 33a.
3/17/2018 4:30:00 AM 3 Eagle Message Eagle wishes to remind the Senate that we are in dire need of a strong military leader who would be capable of bringing one of our opponents to heel. Unfortunately, although I respect both Senator Papirius and Senator Manlius greatly, I cannot see either in an effective role as Field Consul, and thus my votes against this particular combination!
3/17/2018 4:25:00 AM 3 Crown Message Crown votes yes

Iím not opposed to voting for Nando if a deal can be reached to be counsel but thatís not even his FL and so I donít even think he wants that guy to be counsel.
3/15/2018 1:39:00 PM 3 Hand Message First off, our Rome counsel is not at a six popularity, so the roll was minus three. Therefore we actually have a plus 3 to our unrest for a total of 6.

State of the Republic at +3

3/15/2018 9:46:00 AM 3 Eagle Message Just checking over the file and I realise that I have not updated this so I am behind in a number of things.
Money:
Turn 1 earned 3t for FL, 1t for Sen, 1t for Sen: so 5t. All went on Flaminius and he spent it on a Knight.

Turn 2 earned 3t +1t knight for FL, 1t for Sen, 1t for Sen so 6t. I stated 3t went on Flaminius and 3t to the Faction Treasury but then went on to spend 5t on a Knight. I can either keep the money as stated or return the Knight. I am assuming easier to spend the money and keep the Knight.

Turn 3 earned 3t +1t knight +1t knight +5t Egyptian Grain for FL, +1t Sen +1t Sen: so 12t. I nominated to put it all on Flaminius and then spent 5t for a Knight. So I think I should now have nothing in the Faction treasury and 7t on Flaminius remaining and 3 Knights on him. Is everyone ok with this? Otherwise it would be 3t in Faction treasury, and 7t on Flaminius remaining and 2 Knights on him. I can do a log update when I know what the consensus of opinion is.

3/10/2018 7:50:00 PM 1 Wreath Message I went back through the log and you are right. There should now be 12 legions and 2 of them are vets. My popularity the. should be an even zero I believe.
3/10/2018 5:58:00 PM 1 Hand Message Can someone please double check this.
We started with four legions, raised 12, lost four, raise three so we should have had 15 legions with one vet, so star of 16
Plus four for leadership minus 11 for war and 1 for omens so we should have been plus 8 not seven?

It is difficult to follow different sources.
3/9/2018 11:11:00 PM 1 Hand Message Well our illustrious Rome Consul never decided to update the vassal file. Guess that wasn't in a strat article. I updated it as best as I could but you should all double check the recent one for errors.

The game could come down to this:

There are 14 Legions in Syria and Fabivs is a 4 military. Evil Omens says it applies a -1 to all die/dice rolls. Syria is a 6 land strength +5 for the leader.

So the DRM is +6.

S= natural 15, 17
D= natural 14, 16
3/9/2018 9:15:00 AM 1 Wreath Message In the vassal file now and will move on with combat. There was only 51T in the treasure so I guess we bankrupted state and lost on the six unit buy, but i'll say we just got 3L and 2 fleets since we did not need 3 for Syria.

3/6/2018 3:59:00 PM 1 Eagle Message Ok the people of Rome wish to see a military success and an enemy of Rome vanquished; therefore after due deliberation we have decided that the war in Syria needs to be prosecuted to the full as we need to do our best to ensure a successful outcome and we do not have the money or ability to fight on two fronts. So the proposal is that we raise three fleets and three legions with the intention that they be sent to support our proconsul in Syria to give Rome the best chance we have to defeat one of our enemies. I call the vote and in this order:
Shield, Crown, Moon, Wreath, Hand, Eagle!
3/6/2018 2:48:00 AM 1 Crown Message Ok, I think that with this card, we have to chance to go on with this game.

But I need to know, if everyone of you wants it.


3/4/2018 5:12:00 PM 1 Eagle Play/Discard card INT / Tribune

Message from Eagle:
A Tribune of the people steps forth and approaches the floor....August body hear me, her the will of the people of Rome. August Senators we face war on many fronts and we are not powerless to act but elements of this house appear not to have the best interests of the people of Rome at heart. We, the people of Rome demand to be heard and put the motion forward that Senate must equip our Field Consul with the tools to do the job at hand...we require of the Senate that forces will be raised and allocated to the Field Consul and that he will be required and sent forth, to war, to free us of the uncertainties of the future...Senators a formal proposal shall be forthcoming that must be heard...that proposal shall determine the force required, the war to proceed against and the means by which we as a State can continue.
3/4/2018 4:40:00 PM 1 Crown Message Great, go on Andrew !
3/4/2018 11:24:00 AM 1 Eagle Message Eagle will play a Tribune to table a motion before Senate officially closes....there must be time to respond to actions or inactions ...so If allowed I will Tribune to put a motion to the floor!
3/4/2018 10:58:00 AM 1 Wreath Message Great game! The meltdown at the end was worth the three months. May attend Prezcon next year and see the real thing in action!
3/4/2018 4:10:00 AM 1 Eagle Message I'm fairly sure this is exactly how this game should go. We are self important Senators who want the best for their factions...one of the tools in our armoury is to upset the norm and mess with the power structures in play. Jeff has found one way to do this. We are not completely powerless to deal with this is what Tribunes are for, to force the Senate to remain open to ensure that key tasks or powers that we need can be passed. It is only on a one card one vote but it is still something ...alternatively there is always the knife and then a forced reordering of the power base to the next HRAO or the next or the next....this is why there must always be a 24 hour period between key moments like the closing of the Senate to give others the option to try and do something about it!

Eagle
3/4/2018 3:16:00 AM 1 Crown Message Difficult for me to follow the Senate, out of the ACTS message log.

I report the official statement from Jeff, HRAO:
"Close the senate. Back home late tomorrow. Sans RB at the moment so if anyone to take of rolls that would be great.

Believe some voting coming up after that. If so voting order will remain the same sequence as before. "

Jeff. to do not face our wars means to lose the game.


3/3/2018 12:45:00 PM 1 Hand Message Jeff, how are you voting?
3/2/2018 2:59:00 PM 1 Shield Message Okay looks like it's currently 21 votes for and 15 opposed so my 6 will either tie/defeat it or pass it. Going to do a bit of negotiation at this point with a few of you.

2/28/2018 5:00:00 PM 1 Hand Message Iím not sure how I feel about this. I feel like you are trying to paint an even larger target on my back, but on the other hand Iíd be silly to turn down power. Iím willing to make some deals with people.

P.s. Iíve noticed in the game that people have talents on the place for bids. Are you using that spot for faction treasury? Thatís wrong. Itís supposed to be secret. There is a button at the top for that.
2/28/2018 4:37:00 PM 1 Shield Message Well since spreading power seems unpopular, how about if we concentrate it.

- I propose I will propose that Furius of Moon be allowed to keep his post since he performed so well in his last term.
- Voting order will be kept simple, Crown, Wreath, Moon, Hand, Eagle, Shield
- Sorry for the delay guys - con's are a lot of fun, but very time consuming the way I attend - pretty much tournaments and late night/early morning open gaming.
- And then three days or so when I get back to catch up on sleep etc.

2/24/2018 10:01:00 AM 1 Crown Message Jeff, you're Rome Consul.
There are 2 Offices (Censor, Pontifex) to assign and almost a couple of war to face.

Please bear in mind I am at Prezcon - - so slow responses if any I am afraid.

And if late at night may not make sense. :-)

2/18/2018 6:36:00 PM 1 Hand Message Actually, since the measure is likely to pass at this point. Jeff and Andrew could you state your preferences for Rome and field counsel.
2/18/2018 12:05:00 PM 1 Hand Message You can't be consul twice in a row anyway and besides I'm a fair and just Rome consul.
Jeff up to vote.
2/18/2018 5:06:00 AM 1 Crown Message Uh right
I confused Calpurnius with Cornelius.

:-o

2/18/2018 4:50:00 AM 1 Wreath Message The vote is for shield and eagle senators, not Cornelius (Hand).

I think shield and eagle will do a great job and support.

Your messages should be posted in the journal to bettere keep track of what we say.
Btw, I report here the last consideration from Farell:

'Andras needs to tell us how much you could pay so Rome can pay the difference from 20 only.
2/15/2018 11:04:00 AM 1 Moon Message no surprise there...

Obviously, Valerius is unable to pay 20 talents, so
- he is stripped of PM and loses 5 influence;
- Faction treasury is unable to pay 30 talents, so whatever is there goes bankrupt, FL (Furius) may be subject to Major Prosecution; and
- the State must pay the difference between the faction treasury and 30 talents.

Evil Omens:
2.01.7 EVIL OMENS: When the Evil Omens event is drawn, the
Pontifex Maximus must pay the 20 Talent cost from his Personal
Treasury. If he cannot pay the 20 Talents or if a second Evil Omens
occurs in the same turn, he is immediately stripped of his office and
loses 5 Influence (to a minimum of 0). If he is unable to pay the full
Evil Omens cost, the difference plus a 10 Talent fine is levied on his
Faction Treasury (payable to the Bank). If the Faction Treasury has
insufficient funds, what money there is in that Treasury is lost, and the
Faction Leader may also be the subject of a Major Prosecution during
the following Senate Phase, in addition to any regular Prosecutions
the Censor may wish to conduct. The State must pay any shortfall
in the Evil Omens cost (excluding the Faction fine) not paid by the
Pontifex Maximus or his Faction.

Voting order will be Ryan, Andrew, Jeff, Andras, Nando, me.
1/28/2018 2:12:00 PM 1 Shield Message Humm.... okay I see no reason to try to restrain Crown. Actually I see it as a good balance against the power play by Wreath/Moon/Hand with the whole Consul nominations followed by Moon gaining PM with payment of bribes to Wreath/Hand. That certainly smells of a secret deal made to gain power for themselves without any consideration for the safety of Rome. In other words, Crown's talents are the only balance to the power grab of others.

Normally I would vote to support sending a force large enough to ensure victory, however given the current balance of power I am less inclined to rubber stamp the current leaderships programs. Certainly Eagle and to a certain extent Crown may wish to consider the motivations and intents of the current leadership. With no pressure on Rome from outside forces I greatly fear we shall see an attempt to ride roughshod over the noble traditions and honor of the rest of the Senate.

Sitting down and looking for some chilled wine as I await the reaction of others.
1/28/2018 2:01:00 PM 1 Shield Message Finally had enough free time to sit down and take a close look at the game. Haven't played in about 20 years so please forgive anything obvious I'm missing! :-)

A few house keeping questions on the Vassal file.

Moon - showing 8 votes, I'm counting 7 - 2 for Quinctius, 2 for Valerius, 3 for Furius, no knights. Where is the 8th vote coming from?
Showing 5 Talents - thinking it should be down 3 due to the payment of bribes to Wreath and Hand.
PM on Valerius with influence up to 10.

Speaking of which we may want to make a bit clearer in our posts to whether we are asking for bribes for support or are spending talents to buy votes to support the person. "support him for a talent" can be read both ways for example.

So wreath should be at 4 talents in treasury as a result.

Hand should be at 4 talents as well for the same bribe.

Shield, should have 2 Talents on Aemilius.

Missing some of the Treasury info, but not to concerned with that as info is supposed to be secret - although it's easy enough to track playing by EMail for the most part.

Okay now to take a look at the war options next.

1/27/2018 6:33:00 PM 1 Wreath Message We should recruit at least 12 legions. Just barely winning Wars is costly in terms of troop and fleet loses. We also need to build up troops to beat the Punic war next turn. Manpower shortage would be terrible if we are stingy this turn.
1/27/2018 6:20:00 PM 1 Hand Message If that includes interfering with neutral bribes, then I will accept that and then think we raise 10legions and and 2fleets to fight the Syrians. Anyone want to discuss before I make the formal proposal?
1/27/2018 5:55:00 PM 1 Crown Message Dear Consul, dear senators.
It could be an option (donation for influences), but I can't promise just now, in any case I won't use talents to bribe orher senators.
Imho, we should worry more the 2 imminent wars with leaders than the individual wealths

1/27/2018 4:49:00 PM 1 Hand Message Okay, next order of business is the two wars.
I think we should raise some forces and send our Field counsel to fight one. We need either to raise naval to start to fight the 1st Punic, or armies to fight the Syrian. I think fighting the Syrian would be better but Iím concerned about the amount of money Nando is going to receive from Armaments,
Nando, would you be willing to agree to donate the proceeds to Rome in the next round in exchange for influence?
1/27/2018 4:25:00 PM 1 Hand Message Andrew voted yes in email.
Next up is Censor and Furios wins as only candidate.
Andras to announce any prosecutions.
1/27/2018 1:43:00 PM 1 Wreath Message Andras confirmed 1T via email. Need to hear from Andrew on PM vote. It has enough votes but he could veto I suppose.
1/27/2018 1:43:00 PM 1 Hand Message Nomination then proceeds, ryan and I vote yes. Jeff said he was voting no. Nando said he was voting yes. Andrew is technically up next.
1/27/2018 11:43:00 AM 1 Crown Message Crown vote yes for Valerius PM,
1/27/2018 10:40:00 AM 1 Wreath Message While acts was down, voting for consul ended with unanimous approval for both consuls via email.

Farrell became Rome consul and Ryan field consul.

Farrellís first vote was nomination of Valerius to PM. He agreed to vote yes in exchange for 1T. Ryan made the same offer. We need to hear from Andras if he confirms that deal.

Jeff interjected that he was voting against.
1/26/2018 3:00:00 AM 1 Hand Message Technically one of us could veto it, seems unlikely.
Iíd like to be Rome counsel.
1/26/2018 2:54:00 AM 1 Crown Message We ara still waiting for Ryan, but with 42 out of 48 votes the proposal is approved.

1/25/2018 7:45:00 AM 1 Moon Message Fabius of Wreath and Cornelius of Hand are proposed to be consuls for the coming term.

Voting order is Nando, Jeff, Andrew, Ryan, Andras, Farell
1/24/2018 3:05:00 PM 1 Crown Message Andras is up to nominate 2 senators as consuls.
1/23/2018 12:46:00 PM 1 Wreath Message We need to get win these wars, so we need consuls with high military. For your consideration, Fabius is a four, tied for the highest and I am certainly not a front runner after whiffing on my knight.
1/23/2018 12:26:00 PM 1 Hand Message Andras needs to nominate two senators as counsels, then state order of voting. If it passes the two senators decide on who is Rome/field counsel. If nobody votes for it, Andras loses an influence and nominates again.
Then his senator is the only eligible Censor candidate.
The new Rome counsel can then nominate a pope.

1/17/2018 3:53:00 PM 1 Crown Message The Setup Phase is done. The 1st turn is now beginning. Up first is the Mortality Phase.

1/16/2018 5:20:00 PM 1 Hand Message Andrew, you are up.
Guys we need to keep this game moving. Its a long game that i dont want to be playing when im eighty. Minor things like this can be done on your phone. If you need someone to make a file for you. Just ask.
1/16/2018 9:30:00 AM 1 Shield Message Humm... thinking we should set up a standard approach for using the log files. I'm thinking we have already had a couple of times where files have been loaded that do not contain the information from prior uploaded files. Thoughts?

Now, everyone of you should do the same.

1/10/2018 2:06:00 PM 1 Crown Message We need to know the Senators of:
Eagle-Andrew
Shield-Jeff Miller.
May you list them here, please ?
1/10/2018 2:04:00 PM 1 Crown Message I agree with Farell's suggestion, please list your Senators in tha ACTS Journal, and I'll make a new vlog file with all senators matched to his faction.

Only one question, are we all using the same version of Vassal module ?
I am using the 2.03a...
and I have experienced some difficulties in dealing with Senator cards, sometimes I can't turn over the card ???
1/10/2018 12:46:00 PM 1 Wreath Message My senators are:

SEN / Fabius
SEN / Manlius
SEN / Acilius

I will play with whatever rules. When do we start? Guaranteeing victory. Donít trust Farrell. Etc.
1/10/2018 12:45:00 PM 1 Hand Message I tried again to do my starting senators but could only find 2. It might be wise for us to all just announce our senators and then have one person pull them from the deck. Need the other three to do that.
1/9/2018 6:59:00 PM 1 Shield Message My .02 cents. :-)

PM - yes
Provincial Forces - yes
Legionary Disbandment & Recall - yes

Not familiar with the delaying variant - however we are citizens of Rome!!! Not some minor kingdom struggling to survive so I would go with - no. :-)
1/9/2018 5:00:00 PM 1 Moon Message I uploaded my vlog, though one of my senators is missing.

Agree with the PM.

I like to governorship variant but can also live without that.

I would prefer not employing the 'delaying wars' variant as it would take away the heat from the game. :-)
1/9/2018 1:47:00 PM 1 Crown Message I agree to play with:
-Pontifex maximus.
I am not sure about Provincial wars and other stuff, I'll leave to decide who has more experience than me.

interested to know, which is the advanced rule that make easier to deal with wars during the early turns...

1/9/2018 4:05:00 AM 1 Moon Message SEN / Furius
SEN / Valerius
SEN / Quinctius

will do my turn tonight, though never used VASSAL for RoR.
1/8/2018 11:32:00 PM 1 Hand Message Did you guys not use my first file? I can't find where you put the senators in your files. And your senators need to be face up.
1/8/2018 5:01:00 PM 1 Shield Message Hi Gang,

Just uploaded a file with my Senators.
Couple of quick questions.
Advanced Rules?
All three decks?
Been a long time since I played so looking forward to this. ;-)

I will be pretty much off line Thursday through Sunday. Headed for Winter Offensive [Advanced Squad Leader] and I will most likely have little downtime.... and little sleep!

Regards, Jeff
1/8/2018 4:00:00 PM 1 Hand Message

There is a button at the top which opens the deck of senators in vassal
1/8/2018 3:46:00 PM 1 Crown Message Crown Senators:
SEN / Sulpicius
SEN / Papirius
SEN / Claudius

But, I haven't understood how to pick my senators in Vassal
1/8/2018 3:31:00 PM 1 Crown Message Copying from another ROR game in ACTS:

The first step is to declare your starting senators. Click "View starting senators and provinces" in ACTS. Then post the starting senators that are listed.
1/8/2018 2:33:00 PM 1 Wreath Message Iíll read the rules today and make my move tonight.
1/8/2018 2:19:00 PM 1 Hand Message Last night I created a shared folder and so did Nando. My initial moves were in mine, but I copied them to Nando. Hopefully you can see them now.
I just started an early republic and got my senators from the deck.
1/8/2018 2:14:00 PM 1 Crown Message Hi guys, I 'd like to use Vassal for this game, but I haven't yet played it PBEM.
So I am not sure on what to do.
If anyone is experienced, he is welcome to setup or to suggest me how to setup the game on Vassal
1/8/2018 12:01:00 PM 1 Shield Message Humm.... not seeing anything in the dropbox folder.

Are we using Vassal for the game?

Regards, Jeff
1/7/2018 11:17:00 PM 1 Hand Message I started a game and a shared dropbox. I found my starting senators, picked a faction leader and put a # for my total votes.
Hopefully that is right.
1/7/2018 9:48:00 AM 1 Crown Message Hello senators,
