Tyrion's favorite God!

This PBF will be standard 2ed, except with new house cards.
The house cards were made by for which we are very thankful.

Check out his thread here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1094328/house-card-variants-...

I have placed those house cards in a map, here: http://tinyurl.com/wxnM4mqSmfiyhkVKaKFw

Now for the rules:

These rules are expertly copy-pasted from SeptembreAnge's PBF 117.

The following rules are generally stolen from
Jayson C

and his #42 and reworked a bit. Big thanks for him.


This is going to be a 6-player game with no Ravens. There will be no Tides of Battle cards. House rules are shown in Appendix II.

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 or just as mod.
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:


For this banners we should give credits for

II. What We Play
1. We'll be using the 2nd edition rules and board.
2. We will use the map from this thread created by
xaiviax X

3. Tides of Battle will not be used.
4. Ravens to other players (PMs) are NOT allowed, thus forcing ALL sort of communication to be posted publicly in the thread. Do not use in your diplomacy anything which is out of the game - you shouldn't exchange Iron Track position for geekgold or a glass of beer. Lying is allowed so lie as much as you want!
5. Westeros Cards will be rolled right here. Wildings Cards will be rolled here when it is possible, otherwise they will be randomed by me in OpenOffice Calc.
6. Houses will be distributed randomly.
7. References:

--- http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=3054]Official FAQ
--- Official Responses from FFG
Westeros and Wildings Cards info you may see in Appendix II.


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 if needed. I can remove player from the game for breaking this rule too often.
2. If you cannot post in time, you should notify us here or geekmail me. Then there will be no penalty for you.
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 #117 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - Orders
--- Bid:
------ AGoT PBF #117 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - [IT/F/KC/W] Bid: [Bid Amount]
--- House Card:
------ AGoT PBF #117 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - [Card Name]
--- Examples:
------ AGoT PBF #117 - Round 1 - Stark - Orders
------ AGoT PBF #117 - Round 2 - Stark - IT Bid: 5
------ AGoT PBF #117 - Round 2 - Stark - Roose Bolton
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/bids until I have an order/bid from each person. If the last person I was waiting for already submitted their order, then no orders can be changed.
An action posted into the thread (including OOT action) (march, raid etc.) can be changed until there are no legal action which follows this both in the thread and in game sequence. That means you cannot rely on OOT orders posted in the thread until the proper time.
Please, do not use OOT if it can affect next player decision. Support can never be declared OOT, only by PM to the Mod.

8. We will use the official 2nd edition rulebook for all rules, except overrided by our house 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.
9. 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.

Let's have fun.

Appendix II - House Rules


Wrong order placement


I always check your orders, so I hope, this situation will never occur, but if it happens, i'd rather do so:

1) if a player has more special orders on the map, than (s)he should, extra orders are downgraded (if possible) according to area alphabetical order.

2) extra orders left on the map after step 1) are removed in alphabetical way

3) if after step 2 or by players mistake there are areas without orders, those areas are filled with order in alphavetical orders.
First are placed defence orders, then raids, then support, then march and then CP.

Those rules, as I feel, are ideal to prevent abusing extra special orders by players (not by mod, though). Every wrong order set has strictly one way to be reworked into the correct order set.

Adding order in empty areas I need to prevent abusing again - correct order set must contain orders for all avaible areas. For example, player may try to avoid laying CP order in raidable area or somthing like that.


DWDW: AGoT option

Official responces

Quote:

When collecting Power tokens for point b) of Dark Wings, Dark Words card should we collect tokens for ports with ships just as for Game of Thrones card?

"There are no power icons present on ports. As such, players should not collect power tokens from controlled ports when resolving option B) on the Dark Wings, Dark Words Westeros card."
.

The logic is that:

- On DWDW card we have nothing written about ports, only about crowns

- In rulebook, p. 25 in "Trade with free cities" we have nothing about DWDW card, only about AGoT.

More people including me dislike this rule, so it will be changed in our game. We gain power tokens from trade with free cities on DWDW gain power option.

First 6 people to sign up get to play.

I am only inviting one person, and that is the creator of these cards, because without his cards, there would be no game.

Players:
1- IgnavustheSlacker
2- Charemski
3- Gekkepop
4- Commander Keen
5- Th30r1st
6- Kinky Velvet Claw

Heeeey! I'm excited to try these out. I fully admit some may be too powerful. Will - I actually just posted a mod that depowers Tyrell a bit. Sorry to have missed you, didn't know you were doing this.

You might look at it and decide if you want to update the set we'll be using for this.

Either way, I'm in.

I am quite happy with House Stark, so no trading for me.

Lords of Westeros,

The recent death of my father Lord Eddard has caused the North to grow weary of Southern politics. It was Aegon the Conqueror who we bent the knee to all those years ago, and since his descendants no longer hold the Iron Throne we feel we no longer owe any fealty to the one sitting on it. Therefore we mean to establish an independent kingdom in the North as it was in the days of old. These are turbulent times we live in, and we believe it may yet come to war despite our best efforts, but know that we Northmen desire only peace and can be a loyal ally to those who respect our independence.

Your truly,
Robb Stark,
King in the North

I am happy with Tyrell also. But I think all the houses are interesting with the new cards.


High Lords of Westeros,

I am happy to announce the wedding of my Sister, Margery Tyrell to the rightful King of Westeros, my brother, Renly Baratheon.

The house Tyrell shall aid in taking what is his by right. Those who stand beside us shall prosper in this new Era.
All hail King Renly I!

Loras Tyrell

I've never played Martell, but I'm interested to try it out. Also, if I'm going to play with you guys, I'd like to know you a bit. I'm JJ - a sixth grade English teacher in Rhode Island. Getting married this summer. Really like board games and used to love video games, but have less and less time nowadays (though I still eagerly await anything by Bioware). Read all the time. Filthy liberal.

Alright: RPing - ENGAGE.

The House Martell remains eerily, imperiously silent.

There are no ravens from Dorne.

I'm happy with Baratheon and its new house cards, which are, in my opinion, even closer to the book but little less powerfull. Only Melisandre is up. I regret the most to lose Saaladhor Saan ability from basic house cards

I'm risk analyst in bank in Poland, Wroclaw. Happy to meet you, guys. Enjoy the game!

Orders are in.

Hi, all. I'm out of school, working as a merchandising manager for a department store down in Florida (USA, in case that needs any explanation ). I've been playing board games all my life, pretty much, so it's a long-running hobby for me.
Good luck to everyone, and may the best schemer win!

Ser Loras Tyrell,
I understand your zeal in proclaiming your new brother-in-law king, but I remind you that nothing of Lord Renly's heritage nor any law in our kingdoms suggest that he is the
rightful king, not while my grandchildren and -- secondarily -- your older brother Stannis still lay claim to the Iron Throne.
That having been said, my House has enough unpleasant business to attend to without being drawn into a bloody war with the Reach. So I would like to extend an olive branch as it were, and offer a peace between our houses. I'm sure you can see the benefits to such a pact without needing me naming them.
Sincerely,
Lord Tywin Lannister, Hand of King Joffrey I

Lord Balon Greyjoy,
You and I are both old enough to remember vividly your last rebellion and the great loses it incurred on each of our houses. So I wish to avoid another such waste by proposing a truce between Pyke and Casterly Rock: let your reavers set their sails for Seaguard, Flint's Finger, or any castle northward, but leave Lannisport and Riverrun to me. Thereby we can both profit in peace.
I await your wise reply,
Lord Tywin Lannister, Hand of King Joffrey I


Orders sent.

Hey everyone, a (very)short introduction. I am an economics student in Denmark, and I am about to start my masters thesis, so there should be time to check in a few times a day

Next, I am pleased with playing greyjoys, so now for the ingame stuff.

Lords of Westeros.

I can see that disagreements about your borders has occurred. I look forward to following internal conflicts about power and politics.
But the Greyjoys will simply not take part, as long as you stay out of our waters. Our only goal is to maintain territories that have always belonged to the Iron Islands.

For that, we will fight.


Lord Tywin Lannister, Hand of King Joffrey I,

I have no interest in your territory. Riverrun and Lannisport are yours, because I believe that we have a common interest in cooperation.
However, I will claim, the control over the Sunset Sea.

Lord Balon Greyjoy



Orders are in
