    Hey Tapper, I have a suggestion.

    I am looking to do something other than sit around, and you're at war with tatts. How about I give you my PN now, in return for your promise that you'll place a wormhole in Quinarra/Rarron on your turn. I'm thinking A would be my preference though I'm open to suggestions.

    I appreciate your offer, but let me get back to you at the start of my next action, when the impact of Tatts' attack is clear.

    Thank you Khell, you are a mind reader.

    Tatts, I could waste my breath on saying the AC was paid for by the lost production of A/F. In the end, it really doesn't matter. You and I are unlikely to agree this round and the increasing lengths of your posts make clear you're trying to convince yourself and others that you're being mistreated by me.

    Let's stop the posturing. Take your action, whether it is against Lodd Eru, a build or smth else.

    Now you've moved that carrier Tapper, I may just create some fireworks. This is what pretending to negotiate gets you. Stalling to force me to pass. Well say goodbye to your biggest army. Good job you saved those TG's, at least you can rebuild.

    I'm torn, either I make my move first, or let you make your move and retaliate. Right now my provisional is on Lodd Eru.

    This makes no sense Posted Image. Tapper never pretended to negotiate with you as far as I can see, and I am quite sure you were the one whom attacked him. Or did the Mindnet give you Abyz-Fria from the goodness of their metallic heart?

    Tapper started the round byremoving my command token, and then from there has preceededto try and stall me out of options. I've offered things, he has rejected them. I asked him to come up with a solution and he has not countered. Hislatest move was even called a stall move, so do I wait until I have no moves left to see him attack me and not be able to do anything about it? Or do I attack his biggest army and pressure him that way? I'm still deciding.

    It all depends on where the starting point is. For purposes of who is the victim here, it suits Tatts' narrative to put it at the beginning of the round, mine at the end of last :)

    Sorry Tatts - I just find that you and I look at the same situation and read it in entirely different ways.
    Fact is, you have a massive fleet next to my home world and on top of resources I controlled and want to control. I need that fleet gone one way or another.
    Maybe I cut myself in the fingers by playing that action card, maybe not. For me, it was a way towards reducing your threat/options without having to attack straight of the bat.

    Not that I welcome an attack it doesn't bother me if you do. I'd prefer a peaceful solution. If it was you from the start maybe you'd have locked down the SFTT early doors and we'd have an amicable relationship. It was Jazz who was starting to threaten maybe because his plans for Rex went awry or he couldn't catch a break. I'd prefer the ability to play this round on but you may force me to pass and take your chances. I don't know what else to offer you, as I'm not going to give stuff away. All I'd be doing is building and planning for the future rounds. You have options and bargaining power right now, use them, and come up with something that we may agree to. If not then let's play on.

    I do think we'd probably be in a different situation if it had been me from the start, yeah. Unlikely that I'd have gone for Rex early - given how low on Influence the slice is, it is sort of a logical choice, but then, it is also sort of a trap, requiring constant investment.

    So given your latest move, you have no plans to negotiate?

    Talks are always possible, but I am very unlikely to play Leadership before Diplo and you made clear you need Leadership to move out of A/F.
    Even if Diplo comes now, I may want to play an action card first. In addition, your Trade Agreement is worth little this turn, given that trade is already played. As such, there's still time to talk and agree something, but I am not going to let you hurry me into doing something that suits your agenda whether we agree war or peace without giving me the same benefits.

    I miss the days when you and I had the top profile views at Malazan due to our ongoing conversation. How have you been? I always enjoy your posts when you wander into Discussions.
