Hi Geeks

I love to play MK and I have just purchased LL and Krang (I'm eager to receive the shipment).
Since me and my friends are always busy, PBF sounds like a great opportunity to enjoy some more games

This is my first PBF ever, but I played MK base game a lot of times, so I'm ready to try PBF out!

I would also propose to moderate, but I have never used Vassal and I think it is best to play the first game with at least a more experienced moderator

Hope to get a moderator and at least other 2 players for a MK base game. I don't have any preferences on the rules, hero and scenario to pick, but consider that I'm not so used to PvP.

Re: PBF #29: my first PBF after many plays with real MK base
I'm ready to play. LL &/or Krang is ok for me. no PvP is also ok. We can actually even try LL/Krang combo.

Re: PBF #29: my first PBF after many plays with real MK base
I don't know yet the new features in LL &/or Krang, as I have not received them yet

Can we play the base game? that would be extremely easier for me (and for other players, as I will not require extra time to check the new rules ^_^)

But if you really prefer LL we can try it. I'll have just to check what I don't know from the base game...but I guess the most of the mechanics are the same as the base game.

We need other 1/2 players and 1 moderator.

Scenario: no preferences
Style: cooperative
Type: MK base or LL

Re: PBF #29: 1/2 players and 1 moderator missing MK or LL cooperative
Never played PDF but would love to try, so count me in! Obviously I can't really moderate though. I don't have LL yet but plan on buy and would be happy to read the rules if needed.

Re: PBF #29: 1/2 players and 1 moderator missing MK or LL cooperative
hi airdog4evr,
now we are 3. We just need a moderator (another player would be great but not necessary).

I'll change the title of the thread accordingly.
I downloaded Vassal and I'm trying to learn to use it to moderate MK games as fast as possible...maybe I'll be ready to play and moderate in a few days, even though it is better to have a real moderator

I'll keep you posted on this!

Re: PBF #29: moderator missing for MK (or LL) cooperative. Also 1 player slot available
I haven't moderated before, but I'm plenty familiar with the game, especially the base. I'd be willing to give it a go. Before Vassal, I had made my own automated macro for running the game solo, so I've got hundreds of games under my belt.
So, we have Alberto, Aron and Deniss running a cooperative scenario of the base game. Full Cooperative, I assume, and not the Blitz?

Many thanks Hilliard!!!

Fine for me, you could also play + moderate if you like.

Let's assign heroes then, right? I'd love Arythea, but I can play with other too

If I'm moderating, I'd prefer not to play. It's up to you guys to determine how you're going to choose your heroes.

If you're still looking for a fourth player, I could join in.

No PVP and base game is fine with me. I don't care which Knight you selected, I can play with anyone.

Sorry, I'd prefer to leave it capped at 3 if we're just playing with the base game. It'll make things easier in Vassal for me.

Let's keep it a 3-player game then. Thanks anyway to Jonathan for your offer

Then I'll choose Arythea, let's try to start as quick as possible!

No problems. Might change the thread title then.

Have a good game.

Sorry my fault, since I didn't know about difficulties in managing 4 players in the base version in Vassal.

hoping to play with you next time.
cheers

Technically, I should wait for Deniss to choose his character before posting the map, etc. But, it's a coop game so it shouldn't make much of a difference, and I'm antsy.



Initial hands have been sent to Aron and Alberto.

For tactics, I would like to take one of:

Great Start (5)
Mana Steal (3)
Rethink (2)

Choose yours, then I'll take one of these. I guess we can do like this since we are allies

I am leaning towards Planning (4), though I could take the #1 tactic (name escaping me) too and be fine.

I have never played coop before. I imagine it is encouraged to talk strategy? Like my plan is to get up to the Monastery and take the Monks.

I'll be glad to go for the dungeon (& kill summoners on my way), but I will know more when I'll get my starting hand.

Let's get things running
I'll take Great Start (5)

Then you can do whatever you like, I'll do what you guys will left for me to do, unless one of you'll take no. 6

Just a post to practice rolling dice and posting images, since I have never done it. I will wait for Goldyx to get his hand before confirming my tactic choice.

Test Roll 1mkd[{image}] -> ( Blue) -> (
) [+]


Test to post a die:

Err, I suppose I'm the first person to choose tactics (being last in choice of a hero). However as this one is cooperative - I'm ok for You choosing GS. On the other hand - what we will do if I will desperately need GS by myself.

Anyway, as this one is cooperative - I will roll for my starting hand.

I will roll 10d16 & will take first 5 unique:

1.Rage
2.Rage
3.Determination
4.Swiftness
5.Swiftness
6.March
7.March
8.Stamina
9.Stamina
10.Tranquility
11.Promise
12.Threaten
13.Crystallize
14.Mana Draw
15.Will Focus
16.Improvisation

the first 5 unique will be my starting hand 10d16 = (12 + 1 + 10 + 2 + 13 + 14 + 16 + 15 + 11 + 6) = 100

Yeah, we should absolutely choose in order if possible. However, since it is cooperative, if someone needs something they should feel free to throw it out there so that we can take it into consideration.

Deniss let us know what you decide and then I will pick (I am actually thinking Mana Steal now but am fine with Early Bird or Planning too)
