Welcome to PBF 68. A new terrible enemy has come to fight for Earht - the abominable Tcho Tcho. Will they win?

I borrowed this PBF template from PBF 44, so thanks!


We will use the following as rules guidelines:
° Cthulhu Wars Compendium
° FAQs Compilation



Take backs are possible only until other player makes his move and only if your move didn't involve any dice rolls.


Game Type:
This PBF will be a vanilla 6 player game on the Earth map, featuring only the 7 factions without any other expansions.



Post Typography
* Normal text for discussions, etc.
* Italics for flavor text/fluff. This is optional. But fluff is super encouraged! If you like that kind of thing.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions.


Game Turn:
Post the actions you would like to take, or a conditional order of the actions you would like to take depending on previous actions.

Please be precise in your orders - try to state:
-Power spent (I.e. "Pay 1 Power.")
-Area moved FROM and TO (i.e. "Pay 1 Power - Move 1 Acolyte Cultist from Asia to Arabia.")
-Power Remaining at end of move.
-Turn Passes to <Next Player.>

Conditional orders are a great way to keep things moving along. Be sensitive to the fact that other people may have reactions to interpose! If you don't want to tip your hand, feel free to send me a geekmail with clear bolded instructions under your banner and I'll honour them.


Images:
Try to start your posts with your faction's banner. Alternately, if you are in a hurry / posting from a mobile device / etc., bold your factions name at the top of the post.

The banners:





I will usually refer to everyone by their faction name.

Rolling Dice:
Use the geekroll-feature to roll your own dice.
1-3 is a Miss, 4-5 is a Pain, 6 is a Kill.

Here's a cool custom die to roll for battle instead of a normal D6:
Xcustomw{3: Miss;2: Pain;1: Kill}
(X = number of dice you need to roll)


Timing issues with certain Spellbooks and Abilities:
° Ghroth / The Thousand Forms: Players will have 24 hours to discuss and find a decision. If someone has an unavoidable reason they'll be away that was announced ahead of time, this may be slightly extended; if you know you're going to be away and either ability is on the table, consider Geekmailing me instructions for "I will not let Chaos gain power unless he only has X" etc.

° Devolve:
1. If Cthulhu still has Power left: He may devolve before and after his Action.
2. If Cthulhu has no Power left: he is not skipped, but if one of the moves affects him, he must declare within 24 hrs. if he wants to Devolve. If not, or if the time is up, play continues as normal.
3. If someone is doing multiple actions in a row (for example Yellow Sign's spellbooks, or Unlimited Battle) that would affect Cthulhu, he must declare within 24 hrs. of the action if he wants to Devolve. If not, or if the time is up, play continues as normal.

We might need to make new rulings along the way when we encounter some other timing problems.


Elder Signs:

I will provide Elder Signs.


The map will only show the number of undisclosed tokens each player has.


Conclusion:
Subscribe to this thread, and let's all enjoy a nice game full of treachery and blood!

So the most important question is - who will play the Tcho Tcho? (I don't have a faction banner for them so I guess whoever you are, you will have to bold it)

Since Hastur666 already plays Tcho Tcho in PBF 55, I will remove him from the rooster...

That leaves us with: 1customw{1: Talae;1: Grimlox;1: tiagomo} -> ( tiagomo) -> ( tiagomo)

Random is fine here.

We can do 5-player, so welcome!

I think vanilla is the best when you want to try new faction...or vanilla with high priests? It's up to you guys. Once you decide you can just roll for your faction in seating order:
Grimlox
Hastur666
Mortavius
Talae

You can remove up to 2 factions from your pick

I think high priests add a lot to gameplay, so I vote yes. Besides, the Tcho Tcho get 3 of them: we need to try to keep up.

High Priests works for me.

I'm on mobile so hopefully this roll is correct.

I'm trying this roll thing for the first time; hopefully, this works...

I see the rolls below; I did it twice because I didn't realize it hid it.

How did you all get it to show in the text box?

Sorry; as I said, my first PBF game.

When you make a post there is a roll button just to the left of Font Size on the right side of your list of buttons. I think if you use this rather than the add roll on the bottom of a post then it should work for you.

When you click the roll button a window pop up. Then copy and paste this on the roll field: 1customw{1:GC;1:CC;1:YS;1:OW;1:SL}

If you want cut up to 2 factions of your choice from the roll.

Only Talae to choose now since Mortavius rolled GC. Then, WW and TT (maybe OW) to decide where to start. I will prepare the map in 24 hours

1customw{1:CC;1:YS;1:OW;1:SL} -> ( YS) -> ( YS)

Also, did we decide on high priests or no?


Edit: Actually, high priests will impact my decision. If no high priests, then: 1customw{1:CC;1:OW;1:SL} -> ( CC) -> ( CC)

This is the starting map. I assumed HPs are in play so Tcho Tcho start with 1 in play.



Cthulhu to set direction of play and start with his 1st action.

Great Cthulhu

I'm perfectly fine with High Priests. I'll work on getting the banner up for my next post; still learning all this.

I would like to spend 2 power and move 2 cultists to the Indian Ocean.

And turn order can go to Yellow Sign, if that makes sense?

It makes sense. To put up your banner, you open it from my first post and the address is bgg.com/image/number/etc

While writing your post, you need to click on icon Insert Geek Image (it looks like a camera) and copy the number there. It will show as square bracket with imageid=number square bracket and you should write the word "medium" between the number and the bracket - that way the banner will be nice and big

When you write another post, the easiest way is to just "QuickQuote" your previous post and change your move Hope that helps!
