Shameless copy



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.



1/ ALL neutral monsters from the Azathoth neutral faction only are available
2/ ALL NEUTRAL spellbooks from the Azathoth neutral faction are available
3/ The Hound of Tindalos is also available
4/ The High priests are available
5/ Units from the Dreamlands are NOT available
6/ Units or spellbooks coming from Onslaught 2 are NOT available.

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 are here for download:


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 Yuggoth map with all faction expansions.

The players in this game are:

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.

Re: 2nd PBF League - Yuggoth 4: Brains?


There are 2 things needed for this game to get started:

1. We're all waiting for the new PBF manager ninja
2. I don't actually know who davechua is, his name gives N/A in the opening post..

Once point 2 is solved I'll notify people of this thread, once all points are resolved we'll be able to start.

Wow, this game is going to be a blood bath! Looking forward to it. FYI, I'm at a conference in Vegas for the weekend, so might be a little slow responding if we start things before Tuesday.

We still don't have the 5 player versions of the maps, though.

I sent a message to Arthur asking for them.

Re: 2nd PBF League - Yuggoth 4: Brains?


Okay, beginning of the game.
- Can anyone confirm or deny if this is the 5P map for Yuggoth. This is my first time playing on the map.
- WW can choose his starting territory, either the Ammonia sea (where he is now) or Polar sea.
-Opener can choose his starting territory after that.
-Cthulhu can then choose which direction the play order will go, either left or right will do.

Even if this is the 4-players map, it is playable, it is only a little bit more violent

It's really not. Some factions aren't looking for a fight.

But this IS the four player map.

But this IS the five player map.


Are you sure? When I look at Sandy's explaining of the Yuggoth map, there clearly are more areas (northern slime sea is there, as well as two extra areas in the middle of the map). It also has the same number of areas as the earth 4 player map, in stead of the five player earth map, which looks a bit more like the yuggoth map as shown in the sandy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=my9nyQZ-_ow

Just making sure I'm doing everything right here.

Re: 2nd PBF League - Yuggoth 4: Brains?
Sorry, i don´t wanna hijack your game, but the "Radiation Wastes" is not adjacent to the "Polar Sea", but the "Tindalos Steppes" are adjacent to "Emptiness" and the "East Slime Sea" is named "South Slime Sea" (Yuggoth Rulebook page 4).

You can check out a guide to this map here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=my9nyQZ-_ow

Basically, you'll want to control the laboratory to make brain cylinders, the slime sea overlook to take control of neutral slime monsters and any area in the green pyramid provides an eextra power if a gate is located there. But the green pyramid is also where the watcher spawns, which is a neutral wrecking ball which.. well... wrecks ba-- ahem..
