Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.

These are the (copied) rules for PBF - Resistance 147:

1) Official mission proposals should be in bold contain the mission number and proposal number. 
For example PBF ##: M1.1 Aaaa/Bbbb. Per standard PBF etiquette, the fifth proposal/hammer will automatically be sent.

2) All votes should be GM'd to me. Send your vote in the subject line. For example "PBF 140 M1.1 Yes" or "PBF 140 M1.1 No".

3) Mission Cards should be GM'd to me with this in the subject line: "PBF 140 M2.1 Pass" or "PBF 140 M2.1 Fail".
IMPORTANT NOTE: Even if you are a Resistance Operative, you still have to GM your vote.

3.1) If you are thinking about using your OPG, send me a CO (Conditional Order) about it. I'll try to always PAUSE the game when your OPG could be used. Remember to BOLD your option to activate your OPG.

4) There is a non-strict time limit of 24 hrs on every official game action. If you are going to take much longer than that, please post in the thread in advance. Weekends are not included. 

5) Game-related discussion is NOT allowed outside the thread until the game is completed. This includes GMs between players and posts in other threads. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask! No question is too n00bish!

6) Do not edit posts, except in the first minute or so to fix typos. Deleting is an extreme form of editing which is also forbidden. If you do edit, please type why you are editing. Example: Edit - For spelling mistakes.

7) No dice have been provided to you. You may not use the Geekroller in this thread.

8) Please subscribe to the thread and check in at least daily. Consider to THUMB the last post you read so we know you are up to date with the discussions taking place.
Also, try to always post your thoughts, this game is only fun when everyone is trying to prove his/her innocence while trying to find the spies.

9) Submission changes rule: You can change a submitted card any number of times (eg PASS/FAIL, YES/NO) but as soon as I receive the card from the last player, no more changes are allowed, even if I'm not there to post the results yet.
If you made changes after all the cards were in, I'll tell you which submitted card was the final one.

10) Feel free to GM me anytime with your thoughts and feelings. It makes the game fun for moderators seeing what your thoughts are as you figure things out. 

11) Remember everyone is here to have fun! Bullying, cursing, and other unsportsmanship like conduct is frowned upon.

12) Using flavor-text is deeply encouraged and will be rewarded with GeekGold. Use ITALICS for that.

13) Always use your banner when you post. If you are typing from a mobile device, please start your post with the name of your character.

14) Have fun and find those frakking spies toasters!

15) Usage of OPGs to make mission x.5 fail, implies that the mission failed, not that the game is lost (as in regular Resistance / Avalon).

We will use these 10 characters (note the change in Baltar's OPG):


Moral Compass - You may force a player to change his vote.
Game Play: After the team is chosen, when votes are being tallied, Helo may change the card that one player just added to the vote.


I'm the XO! - You may take the leadership.
Game Play: Like the "Strong Leader" plot card.


Secret Destiny - You may include yourself in a team before it is voted.
Game Play: After team is chosen but before voting, Starbuck may remove one member of the team to put herself in the team.


After a failed mission, you may check the loyalty of any player. Limit of one usage per mission.


Headstrong - You may null an approved Vote.
Game Play: Like the "No confidence" plot card.


For Love - Choose a player that have already spent his OPG. He/She can use it again.


Friends in Low Places - You may look at one played mission card.
Game Play: Like the "Keeping a close eye on you" plot card.


Blind Devotion - After mission cards are shuffled but before they are revealed, you may remove one of them.
You can't use this action on 2-player missions and missions where 2 fails are required.


Skilled Politician - You may use an already revealed OPG once again.
Game Play: Roslin can copy-cat any OPG that was already played. She can even negate Adama's veto, for example.


Command Authority - You may counter one (and only one) OPG.
Game Play: imediately after a player announces the use of his OPG, reveal your card to veto that use.[/q]

I think it's sort of funny that Cylons have stolen the win via assassination and we nerf Baltar's OPG as a result...we need to strengthen the human's chances, I think.

I didn't say no assassination, but some way to make it much harder for assassin to get it right. It's too hard over forum to claim we're Oberon during the assassination phase. Mordred only hurts Merlin. Morgana would only hurt the humans if we played. Lancelot could help?

I'm still a bit jet lagged, but just finished going through 869 BGG notifications.

We have a house and a car, but nothing to put in the house until end of July when our stuff arrives. So most of my posts will be from my phone.

House rule:

The assassin must choose a target at random. Once a target is chosen, the Mod can arbitrarily change the randomly selected target. All players must then voice their unhappiness with this terrible house rule. The mod is obligated to get mad and abort the game.

Nobody wins. Yay!

Wrong. Mod wins. Remember the time that I passed a BSG skill check just with destiny? I repeat, I passed it.

It looks like we are playing with Oberon and Morgana but not with Mordred.

Lancelot was a tie.

Since we are (actually I am) still learning Avalon, would it be acceptable if we add things one at time ? Let's go with Morgana this time and keep Lancelot for the next one ?

Cesar needs to learn the meta slowly so his manipulation skills don't lag.

Cesar for Cylon President.

Good guys
Merlin: Knows the identity of the Assassin, Morgana and Oberon (but not which is which), and his identity is known by Percival (mixed with Morgana).
Percival: Knows the identity of Merlin and Morgana (but not which is which).
Regular human 1: Knows nothing.
Regular human 2: Knows nothing.
Regular human 3: Knows nothing.

Bad guys
Morgana: Knows the identity of the Assassin, and his identity is known by Merlin (mixed with the Assassin and Oberon), Percival (mixed with Merlin) and the Assassin.
Assassin: Knows the identity of Morgana, and his identity is known by Merlin (mixed with the Morgana and Oberon) and Morgana.
Oberon: Knows nothing, and his identity is known by Merlin (mixed with the Assassin and Morgana).

Please, check that for mistakes.
