    No D'reks about 1 value less than the other two but I'm factoring my safety into the equation too. I'm already letting 2 others next to my homeworld uncontested. I need to be compensated somehow. So a slightly higher resource influence value will likely be needed to build up defenses for the late game.


    The way you've carved it up, it's

    Twelve: 14r/12i
    Khell: 11r/11i
    Tapper: 10r/11i
    D'rek: 10r/10i

    (before Khell and Tapper's attachments were discovered)

    If you wanted to be upset about other players being next to your home system... I don't think you should have picked that starting spot (or should've gone Xxcha and rushed the flagship).

    Ahhh, I see how it is. You're more afraid of them than me, I guess :p

    No. I literally added up the value of non home planets that would naturally be yours Tappers and Khells. Your value with what you currently at exceeded that of Tapper and Khells. I then added systems around me to Khell and Tappers count then added up what was left over for me and your three totals were roughly equivalent and what was left over for me was slightly higher. Since my homeworld would be in greater danger this seemed the most equitable distribution for all parties. Feel free to do the math yourself. If you find a better distribution feel free to point it out to me.


    Tapper is more isolated and has easier access to MR, so his home area should have less total res/inf as a balancing factor to that, just like Morgoth's adjacnet systems aren't as good as Tatts/IH's adjacent systems as balance for his defensive isolation. I don't think you can treat the slices as perfectly symmetrical equal-resource blocks like in a standard layout game.

    But even if we accept that logic... [[Vegas + Loki/Ab/Ash + Everra + Accoen/Jeol'ir]] is much more total res+inf than my [[Lisis/Velnor + Mehar Xull + Tequran/Torkan + Atlas]], so by your logic of carving up the map by equal resources you should still be donating a couple more planets to me to make it even, right?


    Maybe he's adding your bajillion TG to your total.


    That wouldn't make sense. If we can add my Hacan-specific abilities to the starting "worth" surely we should likewise add the Mahact-specific abilities to the worth of his zone, too, no?

    By the way I'm interested in buying action cards if anyone's pulled anything decent or better than they don't want themselves. Sabotages and flank speeds are top tier, of course. War Machine is also something I'm very interested in since my home space dock is on a measly 2res planet. Ghost Ship would be good since I have wormholes nearby, too.


    What are your standing offers for those action cards?


    2TG or a use of my agent is probably the standard rate for most decent cards. 3 or 4TG for the really strong ones like Unexpected Action/Signal Jamming. But I'm open to other non-TG-based deals, too.

    Lmao it's a long ass story. I was offering her my dick in a box as a joke, through much rejection I said I was crying like the dude who acts like Boy George from the wedding singer, the way he looks lead TB to call me a male prostitute. After flinging my junk back into my face she also determined that I was gay lmao
