gooWelcome to this PBF for the World Cthulhu Wars League on BGG goo

First of all thanks a lot to GEG for providing all of these files to allow us to play these PBF games. And to Redimanikas for the original PBF files.

This will be a 5 player game with all faction expansions, all independent figure expansions, and 4/11 random independent GOO's chosen in the second post of this thread.


The one condition you need to fulfill to participate in this PBF is that you need to know how to play the game.
I recommend the following links to get up to speed:
° rulebook
° explanation videos for the different factions
° Cthulhu Wars Compendium

Be aware that, once a move has been recorded by me and put into my map (which may not always be posted right away) there are no take backs, except at my discretion and generally only for misunderstandings.


Game Type
This PBF will be a 5 player game on the Dreamlands map will all faction expansions.[/b]

Once we have confirmed the players, I will randomly determine the seating order and your faction based on that order.


Post Typography
* Normal text for discussions, etc.
* Italics for flavor text/fluff. This is optional.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions.

Game Turn
Post the actions you would like to take, or a conditional order of the actions you would like to take depending on previous actions.
Please be precise in your orders, and conditional orders are a great way to keep things moving along.

Images
Try to start your posts with your faction's banner. Alternately, if you are in a hurry, posting from a mobile device, etc..., bold your factions name at the top of the post. The banners are as follows:



I will usually refer to everyone by their faction name.

Rolling Dice
Use the geekroll-feature to roll your own dice.
1-3 is a Miss, 4-5 is a Pain, 6 is a Kill.

I recommend you to use the following custom die instead of a normal d6:
Xcustomw{3: Miss;2: Pain;1: Kill}
(X = number of dice you need to roll)

Timing issues with certain Spellbooks and Abilities:
° Ghroth & The Thousand Forms: Players will have 24 hours to discuss and find a decision.
° Devolve:
1. If Cthulhu still has Power left: He may devolve before and after his Action.
2. If Cthulhu has no Power left: Instead of skipping him, if one of the moves affects him, he must declare within 24 hrs if he wants to devolve. If not, or if the time is up, play continues as normal.
3. If someone is doing multiple actions in a row (for example Yellow Sign's spellbooks, or initiates a Battle as an unlimited action) that would affect Cthulhu, he must declare within 24 hrs if he wants to devolve. If not, or if the time is up, play continues as normal.

We might need to make new rulings along the way when we encounter some other timing problems.

Elder Signs:
I will send you a Geekmail with your current Elder Sign collection each time you get a new one.
The map will only show the number of tokens each player has.

Have fun

Our players:
1. Joeyman3
2. Bobacles
3. thegrinder
4. Dragalar
5. Existoid (who invited this joker?)

Player Order Rolls

1custom5{Joeyman3;bobacles;thegrinder;dragalar;existoid} -> ( thegrinder) -> ( thegrinder)

1custom4{joeyman3;bobacles;dragalar;existoid} -> ( joeyman3) -> ( joeyman3)

1custom3{bobacles;dragalar;existoid} -> ( existoid) -> ( existoid)

1custom2{bobacles;dragalar} -> ( dragalar) -> ( dragalar)

So, our seating order will be thegrinder, Joeyman3, existoid, dragalar, and bobacles.

Faction Assignment Rolls

the grinders's roll -
1custom7{Great Cthulhu;Black Goat;Crawling Chaos; Yellow Sign; Opener; Sleeper; Windwalker} -> ( Yellow Sign) -> ( Yellow Sign)

Joey's Roll -
1custom6{Great Cthulhu;Black Goat;Crawling Chaos;Opener; Sleeper; Windwalker} -> ( Great Cthulhu) -> ( Great Cthulhu)

Arthur's roll -
1custom5{Black Goat;Crawling Chaos;Opener; Sleeper; Windwalker} -> ( Black Goat) -> ( Black Goat)

Dragalar's roll -
1custom4{Crawling Chaos;Opener; Sleeper; Windwalker} -> ( Sleeper) -> ( Sleeper)

Bobacles roll -
1custom3{Crawling Chaos;Opener; Windwalker} -> ( Opener) -> ( Opener)


thegrinder becomes the Yellow Sign, Joey becomes Great Cthulhu, Arthur becomes Black Goat, Dragalar becomes the Sleeper, and Bobacles becomes the Opener of the Way.

Independent GOO Roll

1custom11{Azathoth;Abhoth;Atlach-Nacha;Bokrug;Chaugnar Faugn;Cthugha;Father Dagon;Ghatanothoa;Gobogeg;Mother Hydra;Yig} -> ( Yig) -> ( Yig)

1custom10{Azathoth;Abhoth;Atlach-Nacha;Bokrug;Chaugnar Faugn;Cthugha;Father Dagon;Ghatanothoa;Gobogeg;Mother Hydra} -> ( Azathoth) -> ( Azathoth)

1custom9{Abhoth;Atlach-Nacha;Bokrug;Chaugnar Faugn;Cthugha;Father Dagon;Ghatanothoa;Gobogeg;Mother Hydra} -> ( Bokrug) -> ( Bokrug)

1custom8{Abhoth;Atlach-Nacha;Chaugnar Faugn;Cthugha;Father Dagon;Ghatanothoa;Gobogeg;Mother Hydra} -> ( Mother Hydra) -> ( Mother Hydra)

Available in this game are Azathoth, Yig, Mother Hydra, and Bokrug. Also available are all independent monsters and the Hound of Tindalos terror.

Beginning Map


Here's what I need - Play Rotation choice from Cthulhu and Opening location from Opener and then we can begin!

Done - I'll move it (but probably won't load a new map for a few actions).



Cthulhu is up with play rotating right.

I can confirm Arthur is totally an over-rated player i have still some of stomped parts of him under my boot due to the last time i crush him in a game at Essen while he was playing Black Goat at Essen. goo goo

Go, take look at 'loser' in the Dictionnary and you will find a photo of him

Fair enough, Arthur. I've never even played a game with an Opener of the Way in it! It's like I'm living my dreams virtually...

Pay 0 Power: Kill 2 Cultists for spellbook req. Gain Red Sign.

8 Power Left

Sleeper Next.


sorry, the edits included a change to my action.

Which brings me to a question:
Is the basic rule that you can edit your Action until the next player posts HIS action?

And, another question:
am I correct that there are no high priests available?

Basically, the rule is you can edit it until I've entered it. The best rule of thumb is that you can edit until the next player posts his actions but combat can never be taken back.

I'll summon a wizard in the Tower of Koth. (-1 pp).

I'll move a cultist from the Tower of Koth to the Ruins of Karoth. (-1 pp).

7 power left.

Opener next.


Edit: I hope the moderator doesn't mind that I edited my move given that no one has posted yet, but I will retract the edit if needed. I was trying to post quickly and didn't see the updated map where Opener changed his starting position.
