Republic of Rome forum game


#1147

Yes, that would work. Do you want to amend your proposal?


#1148

Yes, done.

We need @Kolbex , @CraigM, @Panzeh to weigh in so we can finish the Revenue Phase.


#1149

I agree with @Navaronegun here.


#1150

Very well, I withdraw the proposal.

@rho21, 5 talents to Calpurnicus, the rest to faction treasury

Sorry for any delay.


#1151

The Easter Grain Company distributes its wealth this way:

5 talents to Fabius
13 talents to Papirius

The rest remains in the faction treasury.


#1152

This is hilariously entertaining, please tell me y’All are going to keep going to the Middle republic


#1153

If Carthago delenda est, I believe.


#1154

The game runs until Rome falls or someone wins. Or we hit the end of the late republic deck, I guess, but that’ll never happen.

Now the politics seem to be done, I need money distributions from @Kolbex, @CraigM and @Panzeh. Also contributions to the treasury, if anyone fancies making any this year.


#1155

The Kolbexarii will donate 10T to the Roman treasury, distribute 5 talents to Scipio and bank the remaining 4 in the faction treasury.


#1156

I will distribute all talents to the Fulvius family, who will then donate 10 to the state.


#1157

Oh, right, the donation has to come from a senator. Scipio will donate to the treasury in the name of the Kolbexarii.


#1158

Hmm, I’m being blocked from editing some pages due to reaching the “maximum allowed number of edits”. Apparently waiting for a number of hours will fix the problem.


#1159

@stusser and @Clay is there a way to up that number for @rho21 and myself? It has happened (annoyingly) to me too once or twice with the Empires in Arms PBF…the price of Moderating a PBF game and using PM threads…


#1160

Probably but I’m traveling and can’t look into it until next week. Remind me then!


#1161

Will do. Thanks, Clay!


#1162

Poke @Panzeh


#1163

5 on Claudius, the remainder on Junius.


#1164

Forum

The leaders of the Virtus Romana faction have been conspicuously absent from the forum this week. No-one will tell where they have gone, but the general consensus is that they must be meeting with someone who can further their cause.

@Navaronegun: there’s a new card in your hand and it’s your initiative.

As a reminder, the initiative sequence is, in order, any or all of:

  • One persuasion attempt
  • One attempt to attract a knight OR pressure a set of knights for money
  • One sponsorship of games to decrease unrest and increase popularity
  • Change faction leader

#1165

T Quinctius Flamininus will attempt to persuade Sulpicious to Join his faction.

Add 7 Talents in Bribes.


#1166

Oratory + Influence - Loyalty - Personal Treasury = 4 + 16 - 8 - 7 = 5

@Navaronegun: An unmodified roll of 10+ always fails, so there’s little point bribing to push your base number past 9. I’m going to assume you want to spend 4 talents in bribes unless you specify otherwise.

Anyone want to counterbribe from their faction treasury? @Kolbex @scottagibson @Juan_Raigada (the factions with anything in the bank)
