Welcome to Fury of Dracula PBF game #48!


If you're interested in future games of Fury of Dracula, you can enter your name here. Dracula always welcomes new blood!

First of all, I'll be shamelessly stealing this OP from Klaus (Hannibal Rex), who got me to take a closer inspection of Fury of Dracula and so is completely responsible for what happens here.

Here's how I rule, in case of ambiguities; Thanks to dave65tdh for greatly expanding the list. Note that my rulings are occasionally different than his.

1) I'm going to allow Customs Search to be played on Dracula's current location, if there are no encounters there.

2) A fled New Vampire won't end the hunter's turn.

3) If Dracula gets the Fangs or Escape as Bat special move, a Hide power card gets removed from the trail if the location where it was played gets replaced. All other power cards stay. If there is no legal move available for Dracula, he stays in place.

4) If Relentless Minion gets played, only the outcome of the second combat will decide what happens to the encounter token, and the rest of the hunter's turn.

5) Hired Scouts or Telegraph Ahead won't reveal a Hide card, or the encounter on it.

6) Mina may choose to draw only an item in a small city.

7) There are some rules ambiguities on how Customs Search and Sense of Emergency interact.
This is my interpretation: A hunter is susceptible to Customs Search when he:
-uses SoE to travel from a Western city to an Eastern city or vice versa.
-uses SoE to travel from the sea to land.
-uses SoE to travel to or from an island.

8) If a Hunter is under control of the Bats encounter, Dracula may choose not to move the Hunter (and cannot move him through the roadblock).

9) If Dracula plays Unearthly Swiftness, only 1 Encounter can be matured (If it's the second encounter, the first may be placed in the Catacombs.)

10) If Sensationalist Press is played when a hunter draws Hired Scouts, the Encounter will still be revealed. (As well as which location in the trail it is on, naturally.)

11) Wild Horses can only be played on the turn a hunter has moved to Dracula's current location. If the hunter is sent to a city with an encounter, it is resolved normally. Only Van Helsing may Rest or Resupply afterwards.

12) Heroic Leap cannot be used when Vampire Lair is resolved.

13) Sense of Emergency, Excellent Weather, and Fast Horse cannot be used by a Hunter Group.

14) All cards are drawn 1 at a time. Any ‘Play Immediately’ or ‘Ally’ card must be fully dealt with before going on. Players may reduce down to their hand limits after drawing all ‘Keep’ cards.

14) Players may use a Resolve action and as many ‘play at the start of their turn, or movement’ cards as they have, in any order. Once they begin their movement, the start of their turn is over.

I may have left out something, feel free to ask if you have a particular concern. If I notice a rules ambiguity during the game, I'll do my best to inform the players of my ruling for that situation beforehand.

This game's going to be an invite-only game for some members of the BSG Variant community. Hopefully it manages to bring in some new blood to the Fury of Dracula community.

Combines all the seperate combat cards in a chart.

Kill Carlo. It's a good general rule anyway.

Basically,
- Decide who is going to be Dracula -> Carlo - Check
- The remaining players pick a hunter out of 4 possible options: Lord Godalming, Dr. Seward, Van Helsing, Mina harker. This is also the turn order thats maintained during the game (and Dracula goes first).
- After that, the hunters pick a starting location on the map
- Dracula then picks his starting location
- Game Starts

Sooner or later it will happen... FoD is my favorite in this type of game even though it's very difficult for Dracula as he doesn't win often...

But it is surely very nice to play and it has been a LONG while since i had the chance to do so

So when do we meet again Mina? devil

I'm indifferent to who I play.
Last time I played Lord Godalming, I think.

I'm not overly familiar with the game yet (only played it twice), so maybe I shouldn't be Carlo's main target (i.e. Mina ).

Here, let me quick start this game:



Rulebook: "Beginning with Lord Godalming, and continuing clockwise around the table, each Hunter player places his Hunter miniature on any city of their choice on the map. More than one Hunter may begin in the same city, but no Hunter may begin in a sea zone, Castle Dracula, or the Hospital of St. Joseph and St. Mary."


Since Dracula picks his location after every hunter has been placed on the map, it's best to spread out over the map.

And now I have to re-memorize the Moderator banner for this section as well. Sorry for leaving this a little fallow over the weekend, we had a nice quiet rainy weekend home and I spent the largest part of it playing Super Mario Galaxy for with my oldest boy. I think I know what he'll be getting for his birthday...

Schmloof, assuming you're comfortable with Lord Godalming (he's good for new players - really, the hunters are printed in approximately the order of difficulty), go ahead and pick your starting location. You can of course confer with your teammates, and I highly encourage it. Being coy this early in the game isn't particularly helpful. Take a look at some older games if you'd like to see the relatively standard setups.
