Republic of Rome forum game


#1552

I’m happy to play it to a conclusion or call it here.

More generally, I like the game and would definitely play it again, perhaps with a bit more wisdom now that I have a better sense of it.

And whatever we do, thanks a bunch to @rho21 for moderating the game!


#1553

I’m fine continuing. I think we may have painted ourselves a bit into a corner, though. I vote yes on the fleets. What choice, really, do we have?


#1554

Legions, not fleets.


#1555

Thank you, slip of the tongue.

Fleets on the brain for some reason, can’t imagine why.


#1556

We vote yes


#1557

I also vote yes.


#1558

Paging @Panzeh for a vote.


#1559

Vote yes.


#1560

The measure passes.

Once again I would like to test the sense of the Senate on the question of cooperation in the face of multple wars. I suggest an agreement along the following lines:

  • Each faction may retain 5 talents for attracting neutral Senators / Knights next round, but all other proceeds are to be donated to the state.
  • Each faction agrees not to attempt to poach other faction Senators next round.
  • Each faction agrees to allow @Panzeh first choice in attracting non-aligned Senators in the Forum.
  • Each faction agrees not to prosecute or to support any prosecutions next round.
  • Each faction agrees that they will not attempt personal victory next round.

These are general principles intended to forge a united Senate. Of course we can adjust them now if you have better suggestions. I would agree to these or something like them if all other factions agree.

What say you all? @Panzeh @CraigM @Kolbex @Juan_Raigada


#1561

Yeah, no deals.


#1562

Not even a simple no-poaching deal?


#1563

Nope, as I’ve said many times, once assasinations started, deals became impossible.


#1564

Ah, very well.

@rho21, the Senate is adjourned.


#1565

My work internet is made of wet string today, so no updates until I get home. Anyway, that gives people the chance to use a tribune if they desperately want to propose something else.


#1566

No combat this year, so straight on to the Revolution Phase.

Pass.


#1568

Nothing from me.


#1569

Negatory ghost rider


#1570

Nope.


#1571

Put my concession on Claudius
