PBF-ish Pax Pamir 2nd ed. game 2

This thread is for the game itself. Please direct any rule questions to the companion thread over here.

All negotiation does belong in this thread. I’m going to be doing my level best to make sure [insert non-Red winning faction here] doesn’t win, so you can be sure I’ll be haranguing [insert remaining faction here] to that end whenever necessary.

When posting a turn, please let us know every action you took in this thread, as well as posting a link to the logfile. The logfiles should be self-explanatory, but where they aren’t, the forum posts will be there to clarify.

Here’s the setup I just generated, I’m Red, Loyalty pick order is Black > Blue > Red, and I’ll be taking the first turn.

Again, Vassal is here, v0.35 of the module is here.

Things look a little different from the last PBF, but the map is basically the same, most of the changes are under the hood.

So, over to @ryz0283 to choose loyalty (logfile optional).

I chose British loyalty. Not sure how to generate and send a log file? Do I need to save the game state or is it saved online somewhere? Thanks.

All good on logfiles now. Here it is.1.vlog (751.3 KB)

@whistle_pig, your “log” is a saved game snapshot taken at the end of your turn. I’m going to assume from your description that your turn was played correctly, but please upload logs in future.

Purchase Dominance Check - the Afghan coalition is uncontested, and I’m rewarded for my loyalty. The Afghan coalition stops gearing up for the war that never happened (3/2/2 influence means 5/2/2 VPs, all blocks removed).
Play Maqpon Dynasty - leverage and another tribe in Punjab.

-Purchase William Moorcroft
-Purchase Kandahari Markets

I’m afraid this may be my last move for a couple weeks, as I’m going on holiday until the 3rd of September. I may be able to download VASSAL on the PC’s of the family I’m staying with, but I can’t guarantee that and I probably will have limited time to use it anyway. Hope that’s ok with everyone.
