BSG 413 - Balaniferous

Welcome to the 413th Play-by-forum Battlestar Galactica game titled Balaniferous! I have previously modded game 389 which ended in a cylon victory. Will this turn into a trend or will the humans prevail? This will be a five player base game to Kobol. No expansions will be used.

This game is by invite only. The waiting list is being maintained at the BSG PBF Wiki.

Thanks to ColtsFan76 who kicked things off way-back-when and to Orphius and Jasperhawk who ultimately created and maintain the tools I will be using to mod this game.

Rules

d10-1 In order to participate, you must own a copy of game. This is a requirement by FFG.

d10-2 Use normal text for any discussions. Please Bold any moves, actions, and decisions you are going to take. I will process nothing unless it is bolded. Use Italics for in-character talk. In-character talk is heavily encouraged and makes the game much more entertaining.

d10-3 Private communication will be done via geekmail between me and other individuals. All other communication should be public in the thread. There should be no private messaging between players. If you have a question, go ahead and send me a geekmail.

d10-4 As this is a PBF, all information is recorded. In the spirit of the game, I will request that no one look back more than one player turn if you need to refresh your memory. Please do not copy and paste skill check results.

d10-5 Use the banners for your character when posting. Banners and any images you wish to use are located here: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/item/1834905#item1834905. Many thanks to Gerryrailbaron.

d10-6 Please subscribe to this thread, and try to check in at least once a day. The subscribe button is located near the top of the page. If you are going to be absent for an extended period, please post in the thread or let me know so I can react accordingly.

d10-7 The use of conditional orders (CO) is heavily encouraged as it speeds the game up. If you wish to send me a CO, please start your subject line with BSG 413 (Character Name). Public CO's are not allowed. In addition, I will assume the following standing CO's from all players at the beginning of the game:

Pass on all interrupts I don't have in my hand.
Pass on Declare Emergency
Pass on Strategic Planning
* on Launch Scout unless there is only one raptor remaining.
* on attacks by vipers or attacks by cylon ships.
Pass on Evasive Maneuvers unless it is the last ship protecting a civilian or a manned Viper.

You have a right to change any of these CO's if you wish, but you'll need to let me know via geekmail.

d10-8 Follow the secrecy rules. Some often overlooked secrecy violations include:

* Saying "medium" if you've played one card
* Talking about scouted cards (top or buried) beyond "good" or "bad"
* Identifying which cards/colors you played into a skill check
* Volunteering the contents of your hand if it's not directly relevant to the current discussion

That all being said, I am still human and will make mistakes. Please be forgiving, as I will try to correct them as soon as I see them.

Sorry, I'm likely to be in the process of moving (internationally) within the month, so I can't commit at the moment (I'm also temporarily away from my copy of the game). I'll have to decline.

With that we have most of our players. Still awaiting a few invitations but I hope that we can begin by tonight or tomorrow morning.

Does anyone already confirmed in have any house rules they would like to propose to the group? As this is a base game, we will be using Base Game Investigative Committees (Destiny is revealed) unless the crew house rule to use Pegasus Investigative Committees (Destiny is hidden, but player contributions are still face up).

That would make five. Dualedge, you are in so long as LL6869 does not accept before his deadline. He has a little under two hours before his 48 hour deadline is up, but he might check in before then.

Dualedge, with a roll of a 96/84, you will have first pick of characters and can choose from any.

First pick! What to choose. I don't think I've played Adama in a PBF game yet.

I choose Admiral Bill Adama.



Be warned - I run a tight ship. I will not tolerate insubordination, or lack of dedication to us achieving our goals. If we all work together, we will find Kobol.


Here we go!

Mobile Laura Roslin

So far I have mostly been on the military side in past games. Time to try something different...

[/b]I choose Laura[/b]. My administration is a big tent, supporting workers, tycoons, women, the military, teachers. The only ones we hate are cylons and humans who don't get with the motherfracking program. We throw the former into space without process.

Loyalty being sent out now. You may post your starting draws here. I have a few COs for starting draws which I have included.


Starting Skill Draw wrote:

Roslin -
Chief - 1 Politics 1 Leadership 1 Engineering
Apollo - 1 Politics 1 Leadership 1 Tactics
Boomer -



I will also need to know which space sector you would like to start in Apollo. Sector 6 (Closer to the front) or Sector 5 (Closer to the civilians)
