Hey Blend. Seeing how you have several fronts now. I have all the prerequisits for researching war suns, but would like to focus elsewhere. If you give me your PN when itís avilable, and promise me youíre moving your carrier et.al straight back through the asteroid field, Iíll leave it alone.


My PN is not worth a carrier and some fighters. As I said, if you want to waste the CT on something you don't have to waste a CT on, then go ahead, but I'm not paying you to not waste that CT - it's your budget, not mine.


Itís worth exactly 1 ct and 4 resources for me, so not that valuable. But fine.

Right, so the equivalent of 4 resources and 3 influence - or 7TGs. My carrier, 2 fighters and 2 infantry cost a total of 5. The fleet token it costs me for you to use my PN costs me 3 influence, so you're getting the better end of that deal in the end. And frankly, you've done nothing but threaten me, why would I be at all amenable to helping you out?

If D'rek plays another Skilled Retreat I offer my trade PN for anyone that sabotages it.

@Khell:

Full retreat to Nevant (including the infantry from Arnor). Don't use Graviton Laser. Action Cards as per my PMs.

And FYI Tatts you won't get Daxcive animators on Lor, as there will be no land battle there.

@MacGnaw - you're going to be picking strategy card last next round. I'd recommend you keep 3 trade goods in your bank - I may be very inclined to pay you to use Quantum Datahub Node on Tatts, if the others leave Diplomacy for him :) and it'll be good for you, too, since the last pick will probably be poop!

The biggest problem with that deal would be the ďwhen itís availableĒ. Thatís likely to be a very long time. I plan on sitting on it.

I told you I was going to do that. Way back in the first round.

I've certainly been operating under the assumption you'd use it right away. You're taking away one of my only real negotiation tools.

Like, first you refuse to compromise over Lodd Eru over 1 fucking resource, and now you're just going to keep my only real negotiation tool cause it suits you better. And all I've gotten out of this is 1 VP. Pretty 1-sided alliance so far...

I don't understand why everyone's fucking me right now. I've literally been hostile to one person in this game, and now even my closest ally is fucking me. Normally I like getting fucked, but come on guys...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, war suns are way too damn expensive for me to bother with on only 7 resources of don't-spend-for-influence-planets. If I had the tech for free, then sure maybe I'd wind up building one with trade goods, but it'll basically never be worth whatever cost I'd have to pay to acquire them and then on top of that the crazy cost of actually building one.

I'm not! I just can't really do anything to you one way or another from across the whole galaxy!

(Except buy your Unexpected Action card whenever you feel you need the funds. Come to think of it, I'm at 4 TG now with Tapper's trades, you want to sell it for 4?)

I'm just sort of at a loss right now...

You guys gave Tatts the last agenda, and he doesn't even really need it. Nom's about to come through M/Z with a huge fleet and Tapper's support. Morgoth's gonna kill my carrier and such near his border. My own ally won't compromise over 1 resource. I'm basically gonna be left with a War Sun in the Supernova and my home planet and a couple of shit planets. I'm good for another round or two of points, but then I'll be completely fucked - and I'm not even in 1st or 2nd place, but sharing 3rd with 2 other people.

Why not fuck over IH who's in first place and well on his way to winning, or Gnaw who's in a very good position too. Even Drek, who's behind me in points, is much better positioned to win this than I am right now, but it seems everyone's more worried about the guy who has next to nothing and is about to lose most of what little he has.
