I am away Thursday-Monday, so no start before next Wednesday at the earliest. But once sign-up is closed, I will post the randomised race selection order, and then send you your race sheets and batch of map hexes (I assume you want to build your own map again?)


Oh, when are we closing sign-up?

Sounds good, take your time. And take a look at how you want to build the map / what shape you want it to end up, and let me know if you want me to make more hexes.

I liked the sound of the random placement variant, ie we build the map but no one picks where they start. Gives everyone an incentive to make sure the map construction is 'fair'.

When my group plays we usually build the map first, and then let people chose either starting position or race, and the last person gets to chose both before it goes back. So the first to chose race/position is also the last to chose race/position.

But any system we pick is fine by me.

I think maybe i'd like to try the Barony of Letvenev if they're available when selection comes around to me.

I think the coolest thing about the Muaat is their crazy trade potential using their PN.

It is worth what, 3 technology researches (12 Tg's) or more?

It's not just the researches in isolation. You need to factor in time, and priority. That one PN saves you not only 3 rounds or research, but gives you the option to prioritize other tech trees than the red. Not to mention reaching the Suns potentially at a much earlier point in the game, where a single war sun can be incredibly destructive.

How do the Arborec produce infantry? It doesn't say anywhere. It says spacedocks cannot produce them.


Their infantry has production.

Someone said it stacks, so if you have 5 infantry and a spacedocks on a planet with 2 resources you could build 9 units? If you had 7 infantry and a spacedock you could build a War Sun?
