We are now playing a game by e-mail. Bad 95 thesis, the worst Worms Diet I have seen, a bad Reformation attempt and Luther excomunicated have come to this:
-All the spaces in the map are catolic.
-Luther is excomunicated.
-There are 2 protestant regulars in Wittenberg.

Now it is my turn to play the second impulse. I understand that I can't make Reformation attempts nowhere in the map (is this correct?). I also understand that I can't get anything for making a debate (except, maybe, disgracing a Papal debater and some VPs) as long as there are no suitable spaces for conversion (is this correct?).

So: what can I do? (apart from crying :p) I understand that I can only play cards as events or use them as points for the translations, as long as I don't complete them, because I wouldnt't receive any benefit from finishing translations. Is this also true?

How can I have had so bad luck?

It's happened before in our games. All you can do is (apart from playing cards for events) is translate the New Testament (don't complete them!) and save 2 cards for a big turn 2. Don't despair, I've seen the protestants come roaring back from a horrible start before.

Another thing to bear in mind is that now you can spend the rest of the game saying "the pope's about to win, the pope's about to win, everybody give me card draws."
