And im pretty sure there are no action cards in play which would let twelve get imperial, so I'd rather he had rex then anyone else

I have tatts ceasefire.

I am willing to trade it to you via tapper if tatts proves unreasonable.


Won't be able to trade until Tapper's turn, and if this happens it'll force me to try and take his home system completely not just blockade.

You're very good at offering out my things IH traded to you fair and square. I dealt with you in good faith.


Tatts I bought things off you. At no point did you specify not trading them in the future. The only reason I bought them off you was
A) to stop you being overwhelmed by drek
And :p i thought i might gain a benefit trading them in the end game

If you thought you were trading them just to me i don't know what game you think you are playing...

If in future you want me to not trade your PNs please let me know up front and i will modify the price I'm willing to pay accordingly.

That said I realise you are attached to taking twelves systems and completing an objective, i have a support for the throne on offer to anyone who stops morgoth scoring a 2vp PO, could that change your calculations?


Quite possibly, what would be your proposal?

I don't know what you can achieve, but how about an open bounty of my support for the throne for the first person to take 2 planets off morgoth?

And twelve similarly if you can stop Morgoth taking a planet I will give you Tatts ceasefire.

Gnaw, Nom, Drek offer is open to you as well re support for the throne.

Since self interest isn't helping people stop Morgoth and Morgoth's diplomacy play and all my planets being eliminated have prevented me being able to do anything about it myself, may as well sweeten the pot.

So Tatts is being unreasonable. And Tatts I have multiple action cards to use against either you or Morgoth so you will need multiple Sabotage action cards to prevent me from stopping either one of you .
IH if I get Tatts Ceasefire before his next action I'll use the action cards on Morgoth. His ceasefire will stop him from even getting past my destroyers.


How am I? You are saying this because you believe you can win so what's the difference in me stopping you winning and you stopping Morgoth?

Tapper will only trade on his turn as per his rules stated at the beginning of the game.

I'm saying this because if you do it I don't even have a shot to win. I'm still holding out a slim hope it's still possible but if you come in and gut me I'm very sure I'm done so my motivation to prolong the game is over. And who's to say the next objective is to take a home world and your conveniently located fleet would be in prime position to make a move on my homeworld.
I don't know what I'm doing but it sounds good.

Ih give the ceasefire to Tapper on his turn and then Tapper can trade with me on my turn so I have it before your turn.

I get the ceasefire for using my action card not if it works. If the first gets sabotaged then if Tapper can hold off using Leadership until after Morgoth passes Morgoth won't have the actions available to take any more planets.

Edit: my second action card takes away a tactical action so essentially Morgoth will have to pass unless he has stall action cards to use.

That's a lot of work to go through when it's impossible for me to win this round anyways.

Well neither can I so I have a shot at catching up to you now.

IH, do we have a deal. I have until Gnaw posts to tell Khell if I'm using the action card or not. I'd also like to know if Tapper is willing to do the trade as well.

Sure you have a deal.

I also enjoyed GoT even if it did feel a bit like sneaking a peak at grrms notes.

I'm going out on a limb and hoping Tapper is amicable to this trade but I just informed Khell to use parley on Morgoths invasion action. Please dont forget to transfer Tatts ceasefire on your next action.

I've added PDS fire to Morgoth's move, which I forgot about before. Morgoth, let me know if you prefer another ship to sustain damage - I put it on the flagship as it can just repair straight away should it go into combat.

IH, will you hold off shooting at my cruisers if I move all 3 to the asteroid field?

Nvm. Found another way to get my needs fulfilled.

Hey Tapper, if you drop out of that scheme of twelve's and play Leadership this turn I'll do my best to damage IH. There doesn't seem to be anyone else capable.
