I'm currently hosting PBF006 (which is quite entertaining right now with the absurd amount of misses being fired back and forth) but I'd like to go ahead and start PBF011. I figured with the number of people on the que we could start this one, but if people would prefer to wait until PBFs 005, 008, 009 and 010 come to a close just let me know.

- This will be another 4 player game.
- I'd like to try adding a rule on the communication between players, I am hoping that this doesn't add any time to the game. Players will be allowed to PM each other during the deployment phase to the assignment phase (not the recruitment phase however)
- Please lock-in orders in bold. No take-backs
- Also try to mention in your post what step or who is next
- I will send out mission/action cards with letters assigned in a spreadsheet, I'll be referring to that file if it is changed. I will re-issue new letters for each card at the start of each round. Please use these letters during assignment
- Any uncertainty about a rule/current unit positions then please stop and ask
- Dice rolling - please see previous PBFs for instructions. Please do not edit posts with dice-rolling to avoid any controversy
- If I mess something up please tell me!

The players will be as followed, provided they reply to confirm their interest (also tell me if you have preference towards any side or role).

The Fearless Hero Masouras
The Gallant Hero TheAlgebraist
The Unstoppable Hero Koleman2 (I know you would prefer a 2 player game, so let me know if you're interested in this game or would like to return to the que)
The Impervious Hero High Anxiety

Well I guess I'll add the valiant hero Gorsh to this list since I am still waiting for 2 players to respond...

I know you said you'd prefer 2 players, so feel free to remain in the que if you prefer. Otherwise let me know if you want to play or not.

I'm 100% in!

Sounds good, I'm in!

I think I got a hankering for some rebel crushing, so I would prefer imperials for this one.

How do the dice rolling codes work? A link to the other PBF that include this? Sorry for being such a newb!
If it is OK, I will be the other Imperial. Have only played once before and was the Rebel, so would like to try the other side.

When you make a reply/quickreply, in the line below the emoticons there is a button named "Roll" (next to Font Size).

If you push this button a new window opens where you can enter the dice code. Copy the dice code above (from the "1" to the "}"). The first number is the number of dice you are using. You can also enter a comment on the second line.

Example:

2 black dice 2custom6{iid:3020356;iid:3020356;iid:3020357;iid:3020358;iid:3020358;iid:3020359} -> ( iid:3020359 iid:3020359) -> (
) [+]


3 red dice 3custom6{iid:3020360;iid:3020360;iid:3020361;iid:3020362;iid:3020362;iid:3020363} -> ( iid:3020362 iid:3020360 iid:3020362) -> (

Thanks for explaining that Patrik. Just to show it a little clearer as well.

Rolling 2 Black Dice would use the code...
2custom6{iid:3020356;iid:3020356;iid:3020357;iid:3020358;iid:3020358;iid:3020359}

When plugging that code into the 'roll' application...
2custom6{iid:3020356;iid:3020356;iid:3020357;iid:3020358;iid:3020358;iid:3020359} -> ( iid:3020357 iid:3020356) -> (
) [+]


To hide the line of code you can add a comment in the same 'roll application...
This is a comment... Pew! Pew! 2custom6{iid:3020356;iid:3020356;iid:3020357;iid:3020358;iid:3020358;iid:3020359} -> ( iid:3020357 iid:3020358) -> (
) [+]


For example, here is the code for 3 Red Dice...
3custom6{iid:3020360;iid:3020360;iid:3020361;iid:3020362;iid:3020362;iid:3020363}

And here is the roll...
3 Red Dice 3custom6{iid:3020360;iid:3020360;iid:3020361;iid:3020362;iid:3020362;iid:3020363} -> ( iid:3020360 iid:3020363 iid:3020360) -> (
) [+]


Lastly, every time you use the 'roll' application it assigns your results to a number and your post will show that geekroll number as a 6 digit number. This step is done automatically, but the line of text that displays your results will look like...
[geekroll=XXXXXX][/geekroll]

Just don't modify that line and you will see your results when you submit your post

And our game begins!

The Imperial cause will be championed by their Ruthless Admiral Koleman2 and their Inspiring General Masouras.

While the Rebellion will be led by their Cunning Admiral High Anxiety and their Daring General Gorsh



Imperial Subjugated - Saleucami and Correlia
Imperial Loyal - Mygeeto, Mustafar, Rodia and Coruscant
Rebel Loyal - Kashyyyk, Naboo and Ryloth

Firstly we begin with the Imperial Deployment!

Hi everybody!

I would like to introduce myself.

My name is Patrik, I live in Sweden (UTC/GMT +2). I will try to check in several times a day, but family and work takes priority.

I have played about a dozen games, pretty evenly distributed between either side, though I have never played a four-player game before, it will be an interesting experience (Jorge, please forgive me if I should accidentally overstep my authority...).

Big thanks to Steve for taking the time to host this game!

I wish you all good luck and may the force be with you!

Hello,
Patrik and everyone else! As Patrik said I will try to check in regularly but family and work take precedence.

I have only played onece as the Rebals in a two player game, and have never done a PBF before either. So sorry if I ask Newb questions.

Hope everyone has fun, and thanks to all that setup and host these game!

Just going over our imperial deployment, should be posted soon.

I've played about 5 2-player games, have not tried 4 yet. Looking forward to this session, and many thanks to our mod for hosting!

Now prepare to feel the full power of the darkside!

Edit: been a while since I've done pbf so i'll test the dice too

5custom6{iid:3020356;iid:3020356;iid:3020357;iid:3020358;iid:3020358;iid:3020359} -> ( iid:3020358 iid:3020358 iid:3020356 iid:3020359 iid:3020358) -> (

Hi all, my name is Jorge and I'm from Buenos Aires (GMT-3... sorry Patrik for the 5 hour lag!). I've got around 10 games so far from my real life copy of the game, close to half of them have been the 4 player variety.

I'm looking forward to this! When I get enough time (like today: I work Monday-Thursday), I'd like to write a little fiction in italics next to the actual orders and/or some flavour images; I think it adds some spice to these PBF games (as I learnt with the BSG PBF games). If I'm writing a quick order on the cellphone, while working, well; don't expect that much.

Patrik don't worry about boundaries, we'll see in the game but I don't think they'll be an issue: everyone's free to speak, we're the Rebellion, not those fascist Imperials!

Steve, would you mind explaining a little further your rule about team communication? I'm about to PM my fellow rebel about possible base locations, but I don't understand it's allowed and when it's not.

Anyway, thanks to all for participating and may the Force be with us all!

Are we deploying separatedly (Admiral then General)? Or is it just you guys?

According to the rules for team play (Learn to Play, page 19):

"Building and Deploying Units: The Admiral makes all decisions when building and deploying units."

This is of course after discussion with one's teammate.

Just for clarification... Players are not allowed to PM each other to discuss anything with the exception of...

The Rebels during any selection of the Rebel Base.

And during the Refresh phase, after the leader choice has been selected and posted up until the mission assignments have been decided and posted.

This is all due to the public nature of a PBF game, we are playing this so the world can enjoy our game with us. Please feel free to ask any additional questions about this rule.

Ok, the troop deployment will be this then, once the imperial general confirms it.

Mygeeto: AT-ST, 1 troopers

Saleucami: AT-ST, 4 troopers

Coruscant: AT-AT, 1 Trooper

Corellia: 1 Trooper

Rodia: 2 AT-ST's, 3 troopers

Mustafar: AT-ST, 2 troopers

Thank you. I just sent a PM to my fellow rebel in which we discussed possible deployment and base locations; but I also wrote some bits about possible missions and such. You can't discuss where to put the base and fleet disconnected from what to do first turn...

Should we make that in public too? Or is it a "free talk until we start" thing?

The Rebellion high command has reached a consensus regarding the position of its forces and the location of its secret base; we are waiting for the Imperials to make their assignment official.
