Re: SAK PBF3 - Lost in the Desert
I will play. I'll go over the Sands rules tonight. I doubt there will be much difficulty learning the variant.

It has quite a bit of new components, but they're all relatively simple to understand. If you have questions, just ask. I've played this several times, including two PBF.

/sigh, I guess. Just kidding. You're always more than welcome.

Just need 1 more. I'll probably make the game tonight or early tomorrow, since I have class tonight. Hopefully we'll have a 4th by then.

Tempting, very tempting... I have only 1 game running and it's pretty slow lately, but I can't get new games due to time constraints :<

No, I wanted that lizard to die...

I made you drown when I took out that land branch...

But I have never made you choke on a sand storm...

Well that happened last game I played in Sands thanks to Carey to we can leave that one alone. It followed me around. Awesome!

And I guess I did win the lizard game and got to watch you get trounced by the Frozen Wastes guy so that was pretty funny....

But since that damn Gnome turned up again I may have to focus all the sand storms on her.

Whoa... what expansion is the Gnome from? And Hugo as well? I might as well go do a red and permadeath myself right now...

Also there is a definite reason I'm using Kael in the WORST CHARACTER EVER GAME!

It's because he STINKS!

And you're up whenever you get a feel of what's going on, Jeremy. Make sure to declare night or day before you roll your dice. (I think it's technically during refresh step?) That's the most frequent mistake I see in this variant.

Is it worth it to assume that if someone forgets to declare day or night before rolling that it should default to night for them?

Any thoughts about a house rule to say if you start your turn in town and move during the day there is no fatigue lost, unless you roll mirages? Just seems odd that being in a nice protected town that may be right against lowlands and you lose fatigue if you set out from the town -- I guess you forget to have a drink of water...

I'm okay with that. Use to define your "default".

You can buy water. 1 gold for a waterskin to counter the fatigue. Lowlands, water is free. City, water is not. So... no, I don't like the thought of this house rule.

I have read through the rules, and there is a lot to take in, but I think I can manage. I don't see a description of where the characters start on the game board though (and didn't see and avatars when we were setting up - maybe they are there now?)

I agree with this I just think it would be interesting if we could add stealing as a part of this variant. I'm taking your water for free! Try and stop me! And draw from a city guard deck or something like that....

Anyways, I digress.

Please use player note. Some of us may have horrible memory. Or maybe just me.

Just in case it helps anyone, here's my Pastebin for this game: http://pastebin.com/cihwS9CP

You can make your own and use this as a template. It helps me out a lot, also makes it easy to make combat pretty.

It is just you...

Do you remember when you agreed to ban Gnomes from all your games and that we don't lose fatigue when starting in a city?

You also agreed to allow Milo to steal water...

No no your memory is wrong too!

He said that I ALREADY WON and we're done with the game....

Also, as a side note, did we fix the player note so it can hold more than like 10 words or whatever? I know last time we played that was a problem because we had to keep our quest limit there.

Player note is a new thing, actually, all together. The old player note is now "player tag", which is what you'll be using to keep track of your current story counter or whatever it's called.

Examples:
