That looks good. A too balanced map encourages stagnation in my view. This one is going to encourage a more aggressive play-style I think


I think it will certainly make the ring around Mecatol very interesting to watch.

Ah crap re: Mehar Xull... Gonna fix that now.

As for picking, my plan was to wait until the weekend to start that in case new players wanted to join.

Alright, I have updated the map in the OP to the real map - one of the Mehar Xull's was meant to be Vefut.

It's an interesting map. When do we start? I have to warn you guys though, I'll be going to Spain in july to spend time with my SOs family. I'll do my best to be active, but I'll be posting only on mobile so I might struggle with the post formatting and such.

I will also be away for a week in July...and most of August, but I should be around enough to post on my turns.

Yep, no Mallice as it isnt part of the standard game.

I'm thinking we aren't going to get any more interest for these games and can start our selection phase. Any objections?

Table order has been added to the OP.

Morgoth is up first for race/starting point/speaker chip selection!

After selection/setup is all done, Speaker order (e.g. strategy card pick order) will be clockwise?

I kinda love it when D'rek unleashes her nerd wrath, as I knew she would here. Sorry innocent bystanders, but someone's gotta be the kindling.

Yeah, I think we'll do that, after the selection phase, table order will be clockwise around the table (like in the first game) instead of the above table order like we've done in the past couple games.

I feel like we need a pinned reference thread that lists all the races, tech, action cards, secret and public objectives, etc.

Throughout the games I'mean hunting for reference info all the time and if this game has legs which its looking more and more like it would be very useful to pop into that thread and find what you are looking for without scouring the forum/Web for it. It's nice most of that info is in the start of most chat threads but feel like this info should be in its own separate pinned location and adding the races to it with all their starting infor in it would be great.

That's a good idea, I'll create a reference thread right now.

This alt can't pin the post, though, so I'd appreciate if D'rek or IH could please pin the reference thread!

I presume we are playing with the standard 8 strategy cards instead of the 9?

Correct, as noted in the OP! :)
