This thread is under construction. Please hold off posting until it is ready for the match. I will send out geekmails to the players.

Thanks!




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. Also, I want add thanks to Kolby for helping getting me up to speed and Bernard for getting this started.

This will be a 5 player game with all faction expansions, all independent figure expansions,all Monster expansions, the High Priest expansions, the Azathoth Spellbook expansion 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:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1L0Tj4n1_tkN2ofQS6rJ2...

http://cthulhuwars.wikia.com/wiki/Cthulhu_Wars_Strategy_Wiki...

All the basic rule books for download are here:

https://petersengames.com/downloads/


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 Primeval map will all faction expansions.

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.


Secrets:
Please do not communicate with each other outside of this thread. That means no geekmail messages, or snail-mail letters, or anything. Manipulation and conniving are very encouraged, but must be done above the table.

Subscribe to the thread!

Have fun!

I want to add this is my first time moderating. I used the same intro post (basically) as Kolby to get started.

Okay folks, I have set up everything but the links in post 1 & the map. As soon as Bernard has the PBF manager done & I get a chance to run through it, I'll send out geekmails to all the players.

While we wait, I recommend you go over the rules for the map & indy GOO's.

FYI for Primeval maps
Map Rules
Primeval introduces the Glacier, which is a model that occupies any Gate in the same Area (kicking off the Cultist or Dark Young controlling it). Glaciers may never be moved or destroyed, and in this way create permanently uncontrolled gates. If a Glacier Gate is Destroyed (such as by awakening Ithaqua) or Moved (such as by Beyond One), the Glacier falls off and remains in its area.

At the end of the first Doom Phase, players' starting areas will receive a Glacier. At the end of each subsequent Doom Phase, the First Player must pick 2 areas with Glacier Glyphs to receive Glaciers. Once all areas with the Glyph have a Glacier, no more are added.

You can read more details about Primeval in the Expansion Rulebooks files, available here:
https://petersengames.com/downloads/

About 90% sure. As far as I know, the only thing I lack is a 5 player Yuggoth map, which does not affect us. If it is wrong, I will reset it.

I want to encourage you 5 players to double or triple check anything you doubt. I plan to hold a very open game that teaches as well as competes. Please feel 100% free to question everything and help me make sure everything is within the rules.

Yup! You are correct and I still need to await the updated files. I will delete the incorrect map. I hope you all will be patient with me while I get everything correct.
