I'm well aware of Warlords "safety inspection checkpoints / toll plazas" on the Ring Road, thank you very much.

A shame really. Warlord guerrillas were trying to *help* protect LoC's from Taliban sabotage. But if you want to let the scourge of our land blow up your roads, well I guess there is nothing we can do. cool

We appreciate being considered such a major threat by the Warlords. Really. Standing tall here in the Quetta Shura.

Graveyard of Empires Playtest Session: Taliban bury their martyr
OK, the events not bad, at least better that what I was considering. We'll place a base in the NW Tribal areas. We roll to augment resources, and pick up four.

Over to Govt for whatever.

The Govt. did Assault and Eradicate this turn.



The Battle for Balkh continues, we wiped both Warlord bases off the map.

Not sure it was smart for me to waste both my action and Eradicate on the same space. I did Eradicate first to remove a Warlord base to get the Aid and Patron bump, and then did Assault to remove the last base. I could have just done the Assault to remove both bases and did a Transport, but I don't have Troops elsewhere that I can Transport, and since I WANT Balkh, I didn't want to take any troops out of there.

Back to Warlords for Event or Lim. Op or Pass.

Warlords rallied in Balkh.

Taliban is up for anything, and the Prop card is on deck.

Taliban responded to repressed demand for the willing young men to join Taliban forces. Rallied across Pakistan (the price was right at zero for x3). Then 8 more spaces across the Pashtun belt (Helmand, Kandahar, Ghowr, Oruzgan, Paktika, Ghazni, Khowst, and Nooristan). We extort in seven spaces (3 x Pakistan) plus the possible Pashtun belt sites.

Felt really good not to do a limop for once.

Over to coalition for a limop or the event.

Oops, forgot to upload the file in all the excitement. That's been remedied.

Coalition did a LimOp Sweep to regain COIN control in Khowst (which was lost when Taliban rallied there). Then it's into the Prop round.

Margins:

Coalition -11
Gov't -7
Warlords -38 (resources)
Taliban -6

Gov't is up for Civic Action option in Kabul.

Govt. did a Civic Action in Kabul, shifting it to support. I can't believe we made it to the 1st Prop. Card with no Support in the city. Coalition next, right?

Actually there are no eligible spaces for Coalition Civic Action, so it's over to Taliban for Sharia, and then Redeploy phase.

Taliban redeploys.

I think we're done with the propaganda phase, and can get going again. Coalition up first on the next card.

Government is up for anything but event.

Govt. did a Train and Transport.

Again I forgot to pay the Warlords their money. Warlords go ahead and take one resource from me.



Warlords up next(?) I forgot to look.

Warlords rallied in Farah, Herat, Kandahar, Balkh, and Khowst while also cultivating in Balkh to place a base. (Actually, I placed the base first and then rallied in Balkh)

Over to Taliban for limited op, event, or pass.

Taliban take the limited op to march three G's into Ghazni to reaffirm our people there.

Unfortunately I neglected to burn off a resource. Govt is next up for anything, and I trust they will be kind enough to remedy that.

Govt. Did Train and Govern.

Train in Kabul--adding Troops and Police. Then placed a base in Baghlan. Did a Civic Action in Khowst, shifting it to Support.

We did Govern in Kandahar, putting a +1 Population Marker. Govern in Khowst and quickly got rid of that Support and added Aid to Patronage.

Back to Coalition.

Yikes, my mistake. If Coalition just wants to get rid of my base and place the 3 Troop cubes back. Sorry.

Coalition is up next (Also let me know if you want me to redo my turn).

Guys, my gaming computer crashed and will be down at least a week -- if someone can post a current screenshot I can at least tell you what my move will be.

Thanks!

(Mike, let me know I'll do your turn for you.)

(Oh, and why is it when I upload pictures they look tiny compared to when you other guys post an image and they are twice as big, what do I need to do to make them bigger?)

Thanks Gordon! Coalition is going to pass and then take the event to get the PRTs capability.

When you insert a picture you add the word "large" after the image ID within the brackets.

Good to know.

Okay, I did the logfile for Mike. Coalition Did a Pass and then took the next Event. I moved the card over to the Coalition side, so in case if you are wondering where it went. Then it would be Warlords next for Op + Special or a Pass.
