Let's get another one going!

Long time player, first time Mod. As such, the rules and intro are blatantly stolen.

I'm told that the following rules were originally stolen from

Tiger 19
Canada

mbmbmbmbmb




with a few possible edits. Big thanks to him. This is gonna be a 2nd edition game, no expansion, no Ravens and no Tides of Battle cards. Houses will be assigned randomly.

GUIDELINES

I. The Basics
1. Normal text for discussions.
2. Politics and Roleplaying are highly encouraged. ITALICIZE all of them.
3. Bold for in-game moves and actions.
4. If possible, don't edit game related stuff (actions, politics), but if you must, highlight that you edited that particular text by leaving the old text striked through. This is to clear up confusion. Someone may read your original post only once, then when you change it, he may not notice what's wrong later.
5. To make things easier, we will address each other by our House names. You may address me as moderator, mod, etc.
6. All players will use banners when posting. Place them at the beginning of every post. To make them appear, type in [imageid=XXXXXXXmedium] where XXXXXXX are the following numbers:

--- 1152906 - Stark



--- 1152903 - Greyjoy



--- 1152904 - Lannister



--- 1152902 - Baratheon



--- 1152907 - Tyrell



--- 1152905 - Martell




And I will use this banner for moderatorial text:


(1152928)


For this banners we should give credits for

Pavel Kornilov

II. What We Play
1. We'll be using the 2nd edition rules and board.
2. The map we will use is the generic map suggested on the PBF forums (not sure who it belongs to, but thank-you whoever it is.
I will do the Major changes from time to time and post in the thread the modified Map's link.
3. Tides of Battle will not be used.
4. Ravens to other players (PM's) are NOT allowed, thus forcing ALL sort of communication to be posted publicly in the thread. Lying is allowed so lie as much as you want!
5. Westeros Cards will be rolled on any website that I find.
6. Houses for the players will be rolled by me, trading IS allowed.
7. References:

--- http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=3054]Official FAQ
--- Official Responses from FFG
Cards info you may see in Appendix.
III. How We Play
1. Let us all work together and make this game move at a fast pace. Please, check in at least once a day. I'll try to be a good example for you and update our map daily.
2. If you can not post in time, you should notify us here or geekmail me.
3. Geekmail me your orders, bids, and house cards. All Geekmails should have a subject as prescribed below. Also, be sure to send an order to ALL your territories WITH units. Don't forget to put a * next to your star orders.
--- Orders:
------ AGoT PBF #120 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - Orders
--- Bid:
------ AGoT PBF #120 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - [IT/F/KC/W] Bid: [Bid Amount]
--- House Card:
------ AGoT PBF #120 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - [Card Name]
--- Examples:
------ AGoT PBF #120 - Round 1 - Stark - Orders
------ AGoT PBF #120 - Round 2 - Stark - IT Bid: 3
------ AGoT PBF #120 - Round 2 - Stark - Battle of Moat Calin: Robb Stark
4. After sending me your orders/bid via geekmail, go to the thread and post that you have done so. This will do a lot to help the game keep moving along.
5. During Combat Phase, we will use the following steps:
--- a. The attacker calculates and posts both his and the defender's combat strength. This includes BOTH their initial strength (combat strength of participating units), order modifier (+2, +1, +0, or -1), and initial support.
--- b. Both attacker and defender then asks for support from other houses. Those who wish to support any side should declare it by posting a message in the thread. If support has been declared, the supporter recomputes and posts both parties' modified combat strength.
--- c. The attacker Geekmails me his chosen house card and informs everyone by posting that he has already sent his house card to the mod.
--- d. The defender Geekmails me his chosen house card AND posts it in the thread.
--- e. The attacker reveals his house card by posting it in the thread.
--- f. The attacker or defender may now decide if he will use his Valyrian Steel Blade token.
--- g. Anyone may now recompute and post the final combat strength of both parties. Combat resolution follows.
--- Notes:
------ Steps (b & f) are optional and may be skipped.
------ In the interest of speeding things up, the attacker may skip Step b and proceed with Step c. In this case, support from other houses can still be declared as long as the defender has not yet geekmailed me his house card (Step d). All support declared after step d will no longer count.
------ In Step g, anyone may resolve the combat without waiting for the mod.
------ Calculation example for copy and paste, modify it according to the current battle:

[Attacker]
Initial Strength = 3 (1 KN, 1 FM)
Order = -1
Support = 0
Card = Send to mod
Total = 2++

[Defender]
Initial Strength = 1 (1 FM)
Order = +1
Support = 1 (1 SH)
Card = ??
Total = 3++

6. Feel free to take your next action if you feel it won't affect what's currently going on. Alternatively, you can send me the action via Geekmail and I'll process it at the appropriate time. Conditional orders are very much welcome.
7. On changing your mind, I will accept updates/changes to orders/battles until I have an order from each person. This you will see as I put the modified link available.
8. Regarding power tokens when marching, it is strongly encouraged that you declare that you are leaving a power token when you announce a march. However, I will allow you to place the power token after the fact IF it would not affect the outcome (ex. No one marched yet, or there was a march on the other end of the board). This will be completely in my discretion.
9. We will use the official 2nd edition rulebook for all rules. If a question is not answered in the rulebook, we will use Official Responses from FFG. If that still doesn't answer the question, I will make the call.
10. If you see something wrong--either that I did incorrectly or another player--let us know right away! I will do my best to correct any mistakes as fairly as possible.
11. If you can, update the map! It helps everyone go faster.
Let's have fun!

Re: AGoT PBF No. 141: Dark and Full of Terrors
Appendix II

Couple of other important points.

First, if you have a rules question then you MAY PM the Mod and ask your question. Ruling will be responded to by PM. It's up to the player whether or not to ask questions by PM or publicly.

Second, if you sent me a set of order that are not legal, I will PM you if I catch it. If I don't catch it and I post the orders with illegal placements, then I will do whatever is least intrusive to correct it. That means that I will downgrade an illegal * order or remove an illegal order entirely. I will not allow you, for example, to replace an illegal raid order with a legal defense order, etc. Again, this will be completely in my discretion. Please make sure all orders are legal before sending them to me.

Third, I'm aware that holiday seasons are coming up quick. If you are going away and will not be available, PLEASE let us know. Same thing goes for people who are generally not available on certain days of the week.

Note: Personally, I have spotty availability on weekends due to family obligations.

Lastly, REPLACEMENTS: I want to move this game along quickly. Please don't play if you cannot post promptly. If a couple days go by and there is no activity from a player, I will look for replacements.

Lastly, we will be using this map:

Everyone can edit the map, although it editing only works on certain browsers. (Does work on- Chrome, IE10, more)

Map:

Please DO NOT edit the map on your own for CP or cleanup stage. I want to do that myself.

I accept to be an alternate (or player now because of declines?) Thanks nightlyraver!

-GameAllDay

p.s. I'm going to be out of town on vacation from Dec. 16-23. I'd probably be able to do a good combination of pre-orders and updates via smart phone, though.

I sent out a couple more invites. I think our waitlist system inflates the number of people who are actually waiting to play. I've sent out almost 2 dozen invites already and we don't yet have a game. I'm sure it'll happen...

OK, so the houses are as follows:

GameAllDay: Tyrell
TMNTerps: Stark
ahdiabolo: Greyjoy
Evershifter: Martell
angryelf97: Baratheon
CyLo: Lannister


Like I said, I will allow a limited period of time to make any trades. If no one posts that they want to trade (or if all post that they won't trade) within the next several hours, please send me your orders. If you want to move things along, you can start sending orders now, conditioned on there being no trades.

Also, take the time to start any diplomacy.

Have fun and may The Seven guide you!

Since I played Greyjoy the last few times, I would love to play as one of the southern houses (Tyrell, Martell or Baratheon).
Anyone up for a trade?

I'm fine with Tyrell here. I have yet to get a real life 6 player game (and this is my first PBF) so I also want to play a southern house. I'd be up for trading for Martell, but otherwise will keep my house.
