Daybreak is here! Let's get it on. This will be a 5 player all-expansion (B+P+X+D) game to Kobol. No Cylon Leader/Mutineer, Final Fives but no Personal Goals, no Cylon Fleet, no house rules.

Some may want to hold their place at the top of the waitlist for a Search for Home or Cylon Leader/Mutineer game; no hard feelings if you decline. I prefer five players over six or seven because the games tend to be much brisker, and I think the game balance is best with three humans and two cylons.

Please come prepared to check in at least twice a day, 6-8 hours apart so that we can move things along at a good clip.

Remember that you have to own the game in order to play PBF. Since this is a pretty new expansion, I'll be reluctant to post/GM anything that you should have information about - buy the game!

This was made possible by ColtsFan76 and he has my undying thanks for that. I will also be using the Open Office spreadsheet and GIMP files created by Orphius and completely revamped by :jasperhawk:. I think they are amazing.

For info on PBF see - Tips and Tricks for BSG PBF

Standard Things to remember/know:

d10-1All players must have their own copies of the game (this is an FFG requirement).

d10-2Follow PBF conventions. Bold your actions! I will not process anything until bolded. Use italics for in-character talk, and use images for flavor and fun. Find lots of them here: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/item/1834905#item1834905.

d10-3Use the image banners so we know who you are. If you're on a mobile device and don't want to look up your bannerID, please put your character name at the top of your post.

d10-4Don't communicate with other players outside the thread. Any private communication should be between me and particular players. If you have a question that you don’t want to ask publically, ask me, that's what I'm here for!

d10-5Subscribe to the thread! I expect that you will be able to check in twice a day, at least 6-8 hours apart.

d10-6Use Conditional Orders (COs) and the game will run smoothly. The game is much more enjoyable when it’s moving along and not getting stalled for days. If I have questions about your COs I will ask you privately, I'm not interested in trying to "screw" you by executing a CO that clearly didn't account for something.

d10-7I like to make my board images after the current player has received their cards, so everyone knows how many cards are out there. So if you have a variable draw, please send in your COs for those as soon as you can.

d10-8I will assume that each player has the following standing COs. Send me a GM when you'd like to act otherwise.

* Pass on declare emergency
* Pass on strategic planning for shots against raiders, scouts if there's more than one raptor remaining and shots by cylon ships
* Pass on character abilities
* Pass on evasive maneuvers for unmanned vipers that aren't protecting a civilian ship
* If everybody else has responded to an interrupt and you haven't, and you don't have the cards in question, I will pretend you sent me a pass CO. This will not divulge hand information since I will also pass those who sent me a pass CO at the same time.
* If there are multiple conflicting CO interrupts, and the players have not worked out whose to play, I will play the lowest-valued interrupt. If it's still tied, I will play the interrupt for the player whose turn is coming up sooner.

d10-9Respect secrecy rules. Some often overlooked secrecy violations include:

* Providing a public CO (bolding when it is not your turn to act)
* Saying "medium" if you've played one card
* Talking about scouted cards (top or buried) beyond "good" or "bad"
* Identifying which cards/colours you played into a skillcheck
* Volunteering the contents of your hand if it's not directly relevant to the current discussion

d10-0Don't quote anything from more than two pages back in the thread. Say what you think happened in your own words.

I am a HuMod (  Battlestar Galactica - Not a Cylon ) and make mistakes or miss things, so please tell me if you think anything is wrong! It probably is.

I guess there isn't nearly as much interest in Daybreak as I assumed! Clem, you're in for sure.

I'll send out some more invites and it'll be first come first served. I'm hoping to have this launched this weekend.

More invites:

kissamurlika - In!
Zeller
jedisurvivor - In!

I will have to decline, as I'd hate to play without the Cylon Fleet board and things are a bit busy around here just now. cry

Have fun, though! I can't wait to try Daybreak sometime!

I'm sorry, but you do need to have a copy of Daybreak to play. I'm not able to reveal information about the text on crisis cards, character sheets, etc.

We have a crew! Please subscribe to the thread!

Highest rolls will go first.

Arcadious 1d100 = (89) = 89
sockhands 1d100 = (42) = 42
MachV 1d100 = (55) = 55
kissamurlika 1d100 = (64) = 64
jedisurvivor 1d100 = (37) = 37

So that gives us:

d10-1 Arcadious
d10-2 kissamurlika
d10-3 MachV
d10-4 sockhands
d10-5 jedisurvivor

Arcadious, please select one of:
Roslin, Baltar, Lee, Zarek, Lampkin, Tory, Ellen
Cain, Adama, Tigh, Helo, Gaeta, Hoshi, Tom
Apollo, Starbuck, Kat, Karl, Boomer, Hot Dog, Anders
Chief, Dee, Cally, Cottle, Gaius

I will lead humanity on it's way to Earth. But first we are to visit Cobol. Because I said so.
