BSG 550: Further Experimentation Required
5-Player Daybreak game to Earth



Welcome to BSG 550 - Further Experimentation Required.

This is a restarting of BSG 547 - Control Group. Rules are the same as in that game, except that of course you can now read the thread for 548.

You should also feel free to refer to things that happened in 547, if desired; as a result, players from [EDIT:] 548 should not be reading anything beyond this post.

Baltar and Boomer are also now available as character choices.

Player Order (highest goes first):
dtasos - 1d100 = (4) = 4
Arkest - 1d100 = (2) = 2
Adria - 1d100 = (90) = 90
TheLolcano - 1d100 = (8) = 8
decPL - 1d100 = (89) = 89

Adria is up first, and can pick any character from the base game or Daybreak (except Cylon Leaders).

Well, I was thinking Roslin last time, so I think I'll pick her now.

Well. I wanted to go either new Zarek or pilot Helo, so now I don't know what to do.

Guess I'll go Cultar?

I choose Saul Tigh.
Draw 2 Leadership, 1 Tactics.


Time to get drunk and find Kobol.
What do you mean we are looking for Earth now, that's a myth!
Ugh, time for another drink.

You should all have received a GM with your Loyalty, Skill Cards (if you put in an order), and Quorum (if you're Roslin).

Still need initial skill card draws from Helo and Gaius.

Just wondering, what's everyone's feelings upon how important moving the presidency from Roslin is? Better to have the conversation now than in the middle of a heated turn.

I'm ok if we do, ok if we don't. If Roslin doesn't feel like parting with her power (which I assume is the default), I would support her until I have any reason to doubt her blood/metal-levels.

Also, hope you don't take it personal, but if we do end up going for it, I'd appreciate it if we end up with someone who's not Baltar. Not because I have any reason not to trust you, but because you've brought this matter up (and yet in vacuum you could be the best candidate). Not sure if it makes a lot of sense, but that's still my POV.

That's fine with me, I just have found that people have widely different outlooks upon the import of moving the presidency from Roslin, and it can become a point of contention between human players. The way I see it, it's best to get the conversation taken care of now as opposed to later and run the risk of creating two human subteams.

Turn 1.1: President Roslin is the Current Player.


President Roslin, you may take your move and action when ready.

(Sorry, really thought I posted this last night!)

No worries - I was busy last night.



I don't have an XO, so I assume there will be little objection to drawing a couple Quorum cards? I have a couple cards I can spend to do so.


On the topic of moving the President title away from Roslin, I think it often depends on how the game is going. If it's going to be a Quorum heavy game, it might be worth moving the title. Though if she has the cards to activate the Quorum Chamber a few times, or there are enough actions for her to just use the President title, it's not so bad.

We'll probably be better off spending actions on the Demetrius than working the Quorum, so having Roslin as President isn't really an issue for me.

For this turn, since Roslin being on the Demetrius is not a great plan, using the Quorum Chamber is fine.

Frakking civilians squabbling about who gets to call themselves President when we are under attack! If Bill hadn't been against it, I'd just put everything under military control. But if Gauis Frakking Baltar tries to take over, that's the last straw. Like I'd ever answer to that weasel.

Move: Quorum Chamber
Action: Discard 1 - Consolidate Power & 0 - All Hands on Deck to activate QC to draw 2 Quorum Cards


Might as well start filling up the Quorum hand while I have the cards to do so. Then I can just use the President title to play Quorum cards as needed, if I don't have discardable cards available.

Boldly pass on interrupts. Can't really help with this one - bold: tank (don't know anyone else's hands, so not claiming everyone else should; just trying to speed up the game if we don't go for it).

With a medium and two lows, I feel like we should just tank this one. Especially with two people drawing blue to repair the vipers if we need them.
