the arborec being teal rather than green is an outrage eclipsed only by the royal purple being awarded to someone other than Letnev.

I gave Drek Pink, and myself Red cause that's what I wanted for my Muaat, but then I just put the colours around the board without paying attention to anything, and then when you chose races, you just got whatever colour your starting location had at the time! Was certainly not done on purpose to disappoint you. :)

Hey complainers - next time you guys can spend a few hours putting the map together so I can bitch at you for your colour choices! :)

IH, I am willing to agree to a settlement where Thibah is as far east as I go in that area. I would think an exchange of Support for the Throne, and a promise that you will not take trade goods for me while the support lasts would be fair. In return you get to expand towards the center unimpeded by the massive production I will have available to me.



Letnev start with -5 Trade Goods for suggesting SftT swap pre-game.

I got orange. One of my favorite colors so I'm very happy. Game is already getting started right.
I don't know what I'm doing but it sounds good.

Looking at the map and starting units, I'm impressed that only 2 out of 9 of us picked fast-expand races (Tapper and Tatts)


Also, nice that nobody ended up with both their neighbours being right before them in speaker order like Twelve had last game

I was just fed up of chasing that extra CT all the time :) This way I can concentrate a bit more on VP's and not worry as much about where the next meal is coming from.

I figured it was fine since every race and position had been set. My bad.

We don't know who will start as Speaker, but I think Khell said the order will be the same as our race/position draft?

I think Green is appropriate if the galaxy still uses paper bills. Perfectly OK.

There's plenty of green-coloured spices to flow, too. Or, you know, other green herb-like plants...

I'm not against an agreement in principle, will wait for khells ok to start full negotiations. Your suggestion seems very onesided, we swap support for the thrones and agree our natural borders sure, but then I additionally stop using my main power, allow you to accumulate tgs which make you even stronger, you don't have the risk of an early mentak attack when mentak are particularly strong and letnev are weak, can build up some monster fleets with a secure border and a plush set of planets available on the way to rex, plus I'm much more likely to pressurise the jolnar who are obviously a threat if left unchallenged and I get what? What's to stop you changing your mind later, and crushing me with a monster fleet?

I'm not against a deal, but as in last game you have a race which is much better late game, and a lot more planet potential so being left alone at the start, and not being looted seems like it should be worth more, especially with your extremely good expansion opportunities.

Do you have any better suggestions? How about a similar deal and you cede me thibah which is to be left as a demilitarised zone? Or I agree to loot you only occasionally? As d'rek says your racial is extremely powerful so I'm reluctant to give you free reign on that without getting something for myself. As a self respecting pirate if nothing else I have to establish the value of my piracy/non piracy to the galaxy.

Note to all (hey hacan) my services as a mercenary/looter for hire are all available for a price :)
