having first dibs on the space if anyone drops out.

Players should grab a copy of the Print n Play and read through it, if they haven't already. We'll use that as our reference.

Etiquette

The game is supposed to be fun, so not too many rules...

When posting your move, please BOLD your Empire name at the top, and BOLD your actual move.

Including how much power you spent, how much power you have left, and who is to take the next move helps a lot.

If you want to include "flavour text", please do so in ITALICS.

Discussion with other players should be in normal text. All discussion to be "above the table" - talk about it on this thread, not privately by geekmail, email, or whatever. Having said that, making and breaking alliances is a big part of this game, so have at it!

Generally, it is easiest to refer to other players by their Empire name. So, Sky, Storm, etc.

An example move might look something like:

Quote:

STORM

Warriors of the Storm Tribe, it is time to rise and protect our Holy Places! Our Enemies press close on all sides! Death and Glory Awaits!

Spend 1 power. Place a Barbarian next to the Shrine on Kylerela.

5 power left.

Sky - I can't let you out of Hell this round, but I'll definitely do so early next turn, if you point one of those lovely Great Decrees my way...

Darkness next.


Interrupts

There are a number of ways to play "out of turn", either through Runes or special abilities. Try to play these interrupts as promptly as you can, and be patient with others who go "oh, after XXX's last move, I want to..."

We'll roll back moves only if absolutely necessary.

Map Updates and Runes

I'll handle map updates, and I'm working on a webpage to allow you to draw Runes. I'll send details of that once it's finished and tested. Probably a couple of days.

Play Order

Depending on the direction Sky wants to play in, the play order is either:

Sky > Chaos > Storm > Darkness

or

Sky > Darkness > Storm > Chaos

Any questions, please let me know.

Sky, decide play order (Chaos or Darkness next) and then take your first move!

I'm not entirely happy with the way the Trolls are vanishing in Hell. Though I guess them lurking there is thematic enough! Might need to add a white border or something...

Sky, I can let you out of Hell at the start of Turn Two, but in return I'll want BOTH Great Decrees pointed my way. It'll basically take everything I have for this turn and most of next turn to set it up.

What's your thoughts on this, Uncle?

There's been a small number of rule changes, which we're early enough in the game that I think we should adopt:

Decarcassor wrote:
Sky
-Great decrees now only cost 1 power, but can't be used on the first turn.
-You get 2 runes when the Sun God exit Hell. Whoever gave permission still get 1 rune.
-Solar Energy give 3 power and no runes.
-Noblesse Oblige only give 1 rune in addition to 1 VP.

Storm
-Inferority Complex let you trade 2 VP for 4 Power in the power phase.
-Whirlwind add a single battle dice whenever you use it.
-Weather control now count itself as part of the power gained.


Also, Sky, are you willing to accept my offer? I need to know before my first move!

Chaos is up.

I agree, as this seems to be the best way to get Yelm out of the furnace.

CHAOS

Death! Ruin! Disharmony! Bwahahahaha!

Spend 2 power: summon Lady of Disease, Malia to Genert's Garden.

Spend 1 power: build Chaos nest in Genert's Garden.

And there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth.

That's one Heroquest completed. Do I get to choose a Gift now? If so...

Take the Imbed Gift.

4 power left.

5 power left.

Storm next.

Pardon the intrusion but you can't summon Malia right away. You must summon your units at a building you control. Therefore Chaos first action is always to build a chaos nest.

(Also you might consider I Fought We Won for your first gift has you probably won't Imbed anything the first turn.) ^^

Thanks for the advice, Guillaume. Very helpful. I read through the rules, but clearly it didn't all sink in. I'll edit my action...

Please don't offer tactical advice during pbfs. Pointing out mistakes is helpful, thank you.

BTW, if we could have a Mad God Marker for Chaos on the game board post, that would be helpful.

Currently the count is at 0.
