No one has actually agreed with me on anything except IH who would be willing to vote my way if I could find another person to vote with us.

So 23, 11 and 9 for Blend. 33 votes.

If everyone saves 1 vote FOR VP and the rest on me for tech that'd clinch both agendas.



Damn Tatts. People are debating whether or not to give you a great advantage and youíre not even willing to put all your own votes on it? If I were in your shoes, Iíd be thanking them and not worrying about whether I get to participate in the other agenda at all.

Oh don't get me wrong all my votes will go on my second agenda.

So like, Twelve and Nom have been really silent about where their votes are going.

I assume Nom is gonna try to do something to hinder me, but I really have no idea what is in Twelve's head.

I was waiting for twelve, I assumed he hadn't been online, but I just checked and he has so he's obviously keeping silent...

Blend, you've been hanging around Twelve too much. 😁

Who is, incidentally, the player I'd nominate for the tech law. Taking MR away from D'rek is the top priority. Twelve has made MR his priority from the get go.


I can get behind this. IH is currently the point leader with a protection agreement with D'rek who is in the best resource/influence position and sets herself up for late game. Tapper is right that the tech law should go to someone who is in the best position to place balance on this side of the map. That would mean that it should go to Tatts, Morgoth or myself. As Tatts has upgraded all of his Important military outside of his infantry and Morgoth has production for weeks and I believe has IH's SFTT and will be reluctant to get involved militarily in that regard that leaves me as the best choice to buff my military tech while still being able and willing to step in. The tech law will allow me to upgrade my Dreads and leave me resources to spare to build them as well.
I don't know what I'm doing but it sounds good.

So votes as they stand:
Nom = 4 votes unknown
Tatts = 7 votes unknown but presumably himself
Twelve = 9 votes unknown
Blend = 11 votes himself
Drek = 23 votes herself or blend
Tapper = 9 votes tatts
IH = 9 votes paid for by blend, tatts otherwise
Morgoth = 10 votes tatts

So that's 26 or 35 for tatts
20 or 34 for blend

With twelve and noms votes unknown, and of course that is assuming no one is throwing votes on the VP agenda which seems.... Unlikely.

Either way looks like twelves input is important as blend needs his support if he's to carry the vote.


I've had a hella busy last couple of days and am only on for a short while before I go back to work but I'd Vote Tatts before I vote Blend. I have a bit of an issue with the early aggressive move that pins someone in. At least Nom in in a much better position than I ever was last game.

That makes two of us. I've been Awol for the last couple of days and am just now putting any thought into this. I'm pretty partial to giving me the tech as I'm behind in the tech department and am in a better position than Tatts to put some outside pressure on D'rek. It also looks like I may have blown my window on Rex as both Gnaw and Morgoth are likely to take it off D'rek's hands this round so I might as well look to Fight her.

Oh man, the week end I've had. My girlfriend's family has been visiting from Spain, and we decided to spend the week end at my family's cabin in the mountains. It's a unique experience for them and they loved it. They have some skiing experience, so we decided to go for a short trip around a lake on Saturday. Nice and flat, no hills or anything. About halfway my GFs dad stumbles, gets his legs twisted up and breaks his femur. We couldn't move him so I had to call an ambulance. They couldn't get the car close enough, so they called in a helicopter and he was flown to the nearest hospital for an operation that same night. All went well and he's in fine spirits now, but jesus christ that was one stressfull ordeal. My girlfriend was crushed, she'd been looking forwards to this trip for months.

And to top it all off, we were distributed over two cars, and the mother and sister went down right away to be with him at the hospital. The rest of us stayed back to close the cabin and all. When we were ready to leave we discovered the car key was gone. Somewhere in the chaos it managed to leave with the first car, though we didn't know that at the time. So we were stuck there until my dad could come the next day with a spare key.

So, that was fun.

I am voting for tatts by the by, just so that's set. Though if you all want to vote for me I can go for that too.

Morgoth that is quite a story to tell, if all is well you can look back on it in years to come as a story to tell your kids. I hope he recovers well. Femur is one of the toughest bones to break. Normally reserved for motorbikes and ski falls. It must have been quite a tumble. What mountains did you venture into?

My wife and I are doing the Wainwright walks. There's quite a lot of fells in the lake district and these walks cover the majority of them.

They are home to the tallest mountain in England which will be fun when we did that one.

Last year we decided to do Hellvelyn which is pretty high up but has an easy route to get to, and another not so easy route called striding edge. It's quicker but involves a bit of climbing.

Anyway, we looked at the map and thought we could do 3 fells in the one day. By the time we had gotten to the top of Helvellyn we had been walking for 5 hours and were pretty tired. We had lunch and decided to go the quicker way down. I had Penny in a carrier on my back. It was the single most scariest experience of our lives and I've jumped out of the plane. We had to descend steep rocks with walking sticks and Penny on my back then walk along a narrow path with steep drops either side for quite a while. At the time we hated it but afterwards and looking back we won't forget it, and it was an experience we survived.
