I will be lenient in extending this round to midnight tonight, since bgwah and Hagrid posted about my previous error but did not annex any counties. From then on, it will be back to 24-hour time limits.

I defer to this post when homely makes his judgment on this matter:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=159310.msg3458497#msg3458497.

This post, you will notice, also missed the timeline but was counted because homely did not make it into the thread on time to "formally" end the turn.

I think that Hagrid's move should count as legitimate.

That said, I'll defer to Homely's judgement, whatever it may be.

Then maybe neither of our turns should count?

Both Hagrid's and bgwah's moves will count. No more of this, though. I've got the rolling procedure right now, so no more of these extensions and excuses. 24 hours means 24 hours from now on. You miss the time limit, you forfeit your turn. This new round will close at 9:30 tomorrow morning.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

You must be more specific as to the state. There are multiple Clay Counties and Brown Counties contiguous to your territory.

My apologies. They're all in South Dakota, except Yellow Medicine, which is in Minnesota.

Hagrid has annexed Yellow Medicine, Deuel and Grant counties. I cannot give him Clay or Brown counties, however, because Clay (SD) and Brown (SD) are not contiguous to his territory. I think he might have meant Day and not Clay, but I cannot make assumptions on his behalf.

Let this serve as a cautionary tale to all: leave no ambiguity whatever in your selections.

This next round will last until 9:30 AM tomorrow.
