Spoiler (click to reveal)
namyzarc


Whoever is or becomes leader will choose ONE PLAYER to transfer from the Courtyard to the Bazaar. Send me a GeekMail with your orders. Also, leaders, please consider using a Second-in-Command.

Your deadline to do this is Friday, 16:00 BGG time (CST).

If you have a rules or role question, PM me, and I'll answer them in the main thread.

FINAL ROLESET
PBF #41 FAQ

Please remember: All players assigned into a room MUST NOT CHEAT and look at the other room's thread. They may only read and post in their assigned room.

Special note for round 5
Often, players decide what to do early in round 5 and wish to end the round early. The round will end early if the following happens in both rooms:
- Enough players lock in a vote for a leader that the leader will have indisputable control of the room. A player does this by bolding lock vote <player name>. Once a player does this, that player's vote may not be changed again. (I know there has been confusion about this in past games, so I am clarifying it specifically for this PBF and make no claims about past or future PBFs.)
- The elected leader must send me their orders and indicate that they are locked orders both in the thread and in the message to me. This is done by bolding orders locked. If the leader sends orders but does not indicate that orders are locked, I will assume the leader may change them, and therefore I will not end the game early.

Hey, welcome back to the Courtyard, Mike! Did Seen manage to orchestrate his coup over there at the Bazaar?

i'm glad this game has happened: it is an example of why we can't use SIC any more and still call this the base game.

Aww, I didn't know you wanted to go over there. I've heard it's a rough place. Maybe I'll send you over for end of round scoring, depending on what my lawyer DeMo suggests.

You've just been too loyal for me to risk sending you over, though..

Hey, speaking of loyalty, Nat...(ahem)...You should lock that vote before the Blues get into your brain!

I'll discuss more after the game. I very very very strongly believe SIC should not exist and random send should not exist. This game is about reading eachother and trusting one another and both of these thing can take away from that. They don't always, but they open up the chance of manipulating the game in a way that should not be allowed. (sure it is allowed for this PBF, because it is in the rules.) But it isn't 2R1B any more. it is a variant.

A life, some would argue, is a series of problems. There’s no denying the truth in that – but why get lost in it? Why not rise above the truth… and lead a good life? Shouldn’t we all look at problems as a chance for us to find… solutions?

Mike, if you are Red, you should accept my Co-Reveal offer. At this point, what harm could it do? I've been helping the Red team for a while now.

If that is true, my teammates have already told you my role.

Yeah, but he likes getting it from the Bearded Spock's mouth. I would STRONGLY recommmend you follow DeMorcerf's input on this, though, Mach.. I don't think Mike's gonna budge on this.

I can't wait till this game is over so I can go back and see what actually happened during it. Been too busy being everyone's gopher quokka...

How may I serve you, oh people of the Courtyard? Admission is only one locked vote, and I promise to listen to you...

You are my Quokka Namy! kiss

What...what IS this? How may I 'serve' you, oh people?!?! Haven't you leaned anything from "Machiavelli's Rulebook on how to Seize Power in Italy a PBF forum (In Ten Steps or Less!)"? Look under Chapter 3: The people are merely pieces and you the Chess-master. Care to try that again? whistle
