The battalion commander's spandex was soaked with sweat, and his red goggles were steamed. He was too old and fat to be running in tropical temperatures. Normally, the corridors of MDP-7 were a crisp, constant 18 degrees Celsius.

The intruder had other ideas.

His footsteps rang from the hard metal walls, still blissfully leaf-free. He burst onto the bridge, and shakily saluted his employer, leader and hereditary feudal Lord. He needed a few deep breaths before he could speak.

"My Baron. The zample haz ezcaped confinement. Rreportz of infeztation on thrrree deckz, no rezponze from two more."

The Baron tsk-tsked as he shrugged into a harness. "That was always a risk. Which is why I conducted my investigation on an MDP." He swung two handles out in front of his pelvis and poised his thumbs over the buttons. "Klaus, you have been a credit to your family's name." He twisted one handle, and a man sized hole irised open in the domed roof.

Klaus clicked his booted heels. "Sank you, my Baron. Now, vhat...:

"Good luck!" the madman cried. He mashed his thumbs down on the activation buttons and was gone, except for a spreading contrail reaching for the heavens.

Klaus stared upward, slack jawed.

The sensor operator leaned in close to the com officer and hissed, "Vlaada, vhat do ve do?"

The young man took up his mike and keyed it on.

"Callink Frrreedom Towerr. Attention, Frrreedom Towerr.

"Mayday. Mayday."

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest
The order of play will be the same as listed above. Players may choose any official version of their chosen hero. Play mode (Normal, Advanced, Challenge or Advanced Challenge) will be decided by a vote amongst the players.


Akashbhuta Advanced:
A. Reduce Damage dealt to Villain Targets by 1.
B. At the end of the Villain turn, Akash'bhuta deals the (H) minus 1 non-Villain Targets with the highest HP 3 Melee Damage each.

Akashbhuta Challenge:
Akash'bhuta is immune to Environment damage and Villain damage.


The order of hero choices will be:



Adam

When you choose your hero, please include in your post:

Your choice of any variant charcter cards. (The Foil Collection is not yet available for play.)

Your vote (or at least some discussion) as to wether we should play Normal, Advanced, Challenge or Advanced Challenge.



And away we go...

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest
I will be out of contact for the next few days. I will state my choice of variant when I get back if everyone has picked a hero by then.

For mode of play, I would prefer an easier game, and I do not want to play Challenge.

Brian - check out #79. Dylan's taking applications from those not currently in games and requesting those bumped from previous games notify him.

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest
Hmmm... three days without word from Archr, and no reply to Geekmail.

I'm going to make an executive decision, and move him to the bottom of the pick list.

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest
I would like Super-Scientific Tachyon, and I would like to do Advanced. Challenge means that when you destroy a limb, Akash'Bhuta would not then hit herself for damage, right? We want to avoid that scenario, I think.

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest
For some reason I'm not being updated when a subscribed thread updates. I'll have to figure that one out.

I was hoping to try out some foil goodness, but will settle for an old classic.

I'll play The Eternal Haka!

(And whatever mode everyone else chooses is fine.)

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest
Might be tough to sell Argent Adept, unless someone really wants to play him. If a player is not really into AA, then it may not be a great experience.

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest
Really? Love playing him myself, and he's supereffective against Akashbhuta (Sarabande of Destruction, doesn't care much about Brambles and very seldom gets hit by Nemesis damage.)

But then, I like Fixer, too...

I'll geekmail Archr, and see what he thinks. (He is an experienced player.)



Oh yeah... almost forgot about Cedistic Dissonent, uprooting whole Phalanges... and double Scherzo of Forst and Flame with Drake's Pipes, for a teady 8 hp a turn...

Really? People don't LOVE them some Adept? Y'know he has two ways to let people play cards out of turn, right?

*sigh* OK, I'm weird...

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest
OK...if he wants Tachyon instead, I can give AA a try.

I like him...I just don't know about playing him in a PBF due to the out-of-turn elements.

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest



Archr hasn't logged in in five days. Hopefully, everything is all right...

...but in the meantime, the game is at a standstill.

My inclination is to give him until midday Wednesday to respond. If there's no word, I'll get an alternate player.

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest
AA gets a lot of guff, not all of it deserved. Just finished a game with him as the Kvothe version with Freedom Five AZ. AA was alright, I think the Xtreme Prime Wardens version could be nuts.

I will say, that game was vs. Warfang and F5 AZ got the Seeker title from self damage with a cryo chamber in play and things got redonkulous quickly. Like I'm not sure any other version of AZ is close.

I was frankly planning on playing Kvothe AA this game, but I got a chance to play Haka, and Haka is more interesting. :-P

I'm fine with any setting for Akash. Seems like Advanced is the current leading choice?

I'll play AA, Kvothe Six-String promo:


Is there a banner for the promo version? I didn't see one in my search.

Re: PBF # 78 The Floating Forest


Tachyon piloted the transport, made coffee and checked the schematics of several previously destroyed MDP's.

"Thanksforcomingonshortnotice,guys. IwantedNatty'skeensenses, sincewemayhaveanalienbioformhere."

"Not alien," the Adept intoned, gravely. "I know this threat, and she is very much of this world."

"We have faced her before," Haka noted. "Just try and keep the brambles off me this time... they are not fun."

"I am the alien," Tempest noted. "My presence tends to anger her. Perhaps we can use that to our advantage.

The Naturalist said nothing, as usual... but those who knew him would recognize his chuffing breath as readiness to transform, and act.


Okay, then.... we have our team!

Heh... this is a random group, and I didn't realize it was mostly Prime Wardens.

I'm starting with the standard banners for each character. If anyone has a specific banner they would like me to use, just post it.

Mantheron - Vanilla Naturalist, or Desperate Prey?

Mode votes:

1 for Normal
1 for Advanced or Challenge
2 for Advanced

The mode will be Advanced

Let's get the hands out!
