Are we on turn 19? It is really hard to follow with partial movements...

perhaps for the next game it's a good idea to introduce a time limit. ie. 2 or 3 days per turn. if you don't do anything, the turn passes and the enemies get their moves :Y

That might be a problem because of GameMaster's offline demands.

It also creates the need to make very elaborate contingency plans, eg. "I want to move W W, then wait for the Shofixti to attack. If he kills the opponent, I want to go N and shoot the Spathi, if he doesn't hit at all I want to use Mayhem on his target, if he hits once but doesn't kill it I want to use Psychic Blast...) etc. etc. etc. Now imgine poor Luki trying to make sense of 4 posts written like that. Partial turns may slow the game down some, but it keeps things less confusing in the long run.

The next turn is always triggered by the game master, so it's his choice.

Ofcourse not. Turns will happen ast they now, but the game master will end the turn after a fixed time. Characters who haven't acted in time will be considered 'idle' for that turn.
Besides, if you play if then else games you're not really roleplaying anymore Wink.

That's why this is, first and foremost, a strategy game. Wink

Luki - what are the Admiral stats? Kind of important to know how much it takes, especially with the execution orders.

Sorry I disappeared for so long with no warning, haven't had internet for a while and didn't have any warning that I was going to lose it and just recently got occasional access back... hope you all found a replacement and that my disappearance didn't cause to many issues...
