MY 2153.  I fished a Battle Ogre out of the water!  This will help me look tougher in the eyes of others.  Despite my Explore, Conquer focus, I'm still a nation of Scouts.  The University, Cyborgs, and Morganites are much farther ahead of me in technology, although I'm not sure about military technology.  I haven't even infiltrated Yang yet.

The Cyborgs secured the comm frequency of Cha Dawn from the Morganites.  I got it from them.  Cha Dawn gave me a map of Morganic territory for 50 credits.

They don't have much more than I already knew about.  I do have a foil probe team en route.

MY 2154.  I don't know how the Cyborgs got ahold of Miriam's comm frequency, but I'm not complaining.  It's my time to shine!

I signed a Treaty with Miriam because there was nothing personal in me running her off, and she's probably too far away to fight now.

MY ?.  The approach of my probe team triggers unfortunate communication with Yang.  Nevertheless he's Solicitous, so I am doubting he'll follow through on any threat.

Indeed!  What a complete clown show.  Yes I'd be more than happy to help you stomp Morgan.

He was at peace with Morgan!  Even though Yang doesn't have any proper weapons or armor to speak of, getting him focused in Morgan's direction rather than mine is a great development.  Looks like I'll be Frontier for awhile, to keep Yang happy.

MY 2174.  In the wee hours of the morning, I forgot I was writing an AAR for awhile.  Then I remembered to vote myself Governor!

exemplary defense
exemplary defense

I've also been stealing stuff from Morgan.  He's been letting me walk my probe teams right through his empire unchallenged, because he only has Scouts and is completely stupid!  I'm really wondering if I accidentally didn't set this to Transcend?  Couldn't be.  Maybe the AI has no idea what to do if it doesn't get armors and weapons.

the last expanse

A downside to my alliances is they've been out-colonizing me.  Maybe they're cranking colonists at a Transcend level of production after all.  Well it beats fighting them, I've been so weak!

MY 2177.  This is super annoying!  I just got here, and now the Believers decide they want to colonize something.  I almost wonder if the AI cheats this way.  I sure see a lot of colony pods milling around aimlessly when I use the Scenario mode for test games.  Do they spy on me / cheat, then get really focused when I seem to make a move?  Or is it all just perception?

gotta be first in something
gotta be first in something

I decide to rush the Planetary Datalinks.  It's worth noting that all Secret Projects are substantially more expensive in my mod, and they all come later in the tech tree.  Nobody can start anything before Tier 3.  I think since there are 3 strong research factions in the game, and I'm not one of them, I need to get on their gravy train.  I'm also running out of Morganic cities to steal from.  So, it'll take my 2 Artifacts and most of my cash.

MY 2178.  I'm the best!  Except for all the other Secret Projects that are going to complete.  I could sabotage Morgan's, but then it wouldn't be in an accessible place for me to invade.  So I may forbear on that.

MY 2181.  I finally make a land claim, at the last square between the encroachers.  Maybe we'll grow coffee or sugar or rubber?

I am the first to research a real weapon, Applied Physics!  In my mod, plain Lasers have strength 3.  Resonance Lasers have strength 2.  Now, can I belt these out quick enough to seize the Human Genome Project from Morgan?  Will I have enough probe teams to cover my conquest?  These are questions for tomorrow.  It's 4 AM and I'm beat!

It wasn't even a fair fight.  A slightly wounded Scout took no additional wounds running the machine guns over everyone's heads.  You know, atrocity prohibitions... why am I allowed to execute unarmed colonists?  Is it some kind of plausible deniability thing?  "Oh, there wasn't a base, so..."

The bodies were fed to a nearby fungal stalk... :P

When you think you are seeing faces amidst the fungal fronds... you are seeing faces.

MY 2182.  2 enemy Secret Projects completed this year.  I'm in the lead on the Planetary Transit System, 17 turns to go.  If nothing changes, the Command Nexus will be completed by the Cyborgs in a similar period of time.

Cyborgs cant fight
Cyborgs cant fight

I think it's time to get the Cyborgs on board with my war with Morgan.  They don't have any weapons or armor, but they might harass Morgan's western cities.  I only want his capitol with the Human Genome Project in it.  But ugh, she's a weenie!  What have you got better to do, other than expand infinitely into the Monsoon Jungle?

if only they knew the consequences
if only they knew the consequences

I am remembering another reason to be Governor.  I can make Planetary Council Proposals every 10 years instead of 20!  I don't think anyone's going to be interested in atrocities, but I will try voting for them now anyways.  I don't think I have the resources to bribe people into compliance, but who knows?  At least I'll find out how expensive this will be... holy crap, they went for it!  No arm twisting required!

doh

MY 2185.  I infiltrated the last faction, just in case I ever lose the Governorship, and because I have no sea facing cities to steal from anymore.  Mission accomplished, I return to a landlocked lake!  Oh well, at least that base won't be easily subverted.

MY 2187.  As I line up 2 Scouts and a Laser Rover against the first Morganic city, he wants to talk.  His talk doesn't include surrender, so next year that city dies.  I don't have that many proper offensive forces yet, but I've sent all my various extra peons in his direction.  The one thing I'm really lacking is probe teams.

MY 2189.  Yes, please allow me to withdraw my badly wounded Unity Chopper, that would otherwise die this turn if it weren't for this timely intervention of yours.  That's exactly why I flew it over your territory!  So good of you to notice our distress.

This is what I need.  In my mod it makes the Command Nexus available.  I just crossed the threshold of having enough cash to rush it.  The Cyborgs can have the Planetary Transit System, thereby continuing their inexorable path to super-colonization.  Who knows, someday they may outvote me through sheer population.  That might be a reason not to use nerve gas too quickly, on nearby potentially profitable cities at least.

MY 2190.  I complete the Command Nexus, causing everyone else to scramble for the last Secret Project available to them.  They can have it!  The poor Cyborgs didn't have the tech though, so they're wasting all that multiple city production on Synthmetal Sentinels.  Meanwhile I just realized the Morganites never figured out probe teams, so my conquest might be easier than I thought.

siege of Morgan Industries
siege of Morgan Industries

MY 2193.  I've got Morgan Industries mostly surrounded with Scouts, that Morgan is not actually doing anything about.  He's holed up with 3 weak armored artillery pieces though.  The armor doesn't help in an artillery duel, but it does help against other troops attacking the city.  I am bringing up more powerful artillery to kill them.  I've also got 3-Pulse and ECM capability now, that I don't even need against Morgan.  I will just build those for a strong defense and send even more peons to the front to deal with him.
