BSG PBF 561 - Furiouser and furiouser
5 Player Exodus (CFB) + Daybreak game to Kobol


Welcome to "BSG 561 - Furiouser and Furiouser ". This will be a play-by-forum game in the style established by ColtsFan76. Thanks go to him for starting this. Thanks also to Orphius, JasperHawk, and Mawkee for their work on the mod tools that will be used, and to those whose preambles I have adapted (primarily GerryRailBaron and fizzmore - via Mawkee). Many thanks to the fantastic PBF community of moderators and players for developing the resources and conventions that make these games so enjoyable.

Further options and clarifications:

We will use Pegasus-style Investigative Committees that do not reveal Destiny.

Unless the majority of invitees strongly prefer otherwise, I'm proposing a 5 player Daybreak game to Kobol, with the Cylon Fleet Board from Exodus, but without conflicted loyalties or cylon leaders.

Players:

drnlmza as Karl "Helo" Agathon
manutd03 as Gaius Baltar
Caimion as Chief
awp832 as Lee "Apollo" Adama
ThirdWizard as Felix Gaeta

The players for this game are selected from the Waiting List. If you want to enter a game, please use this list, which is found at the BSG PBF Wiki.

Playing notes:

The regulations of the game are pretty much as in all the other threads. If this is your first BSG PBF game, please read through at least one of the previous games to get a feeling for how it is done.

Some particular notes for those taking part (you can find more notes and tips on Nathan's Tips and Tricks for BSG PBF):

d10-1 Please subscribe to this thread and check at least once a day. More, if you have the time. If you have to leave for a period of time, no problems, life happens! Just don't let us hanging and notify us that you will be away for a few days.

d10-2 All players must have their own copies of the game as I am only going to publish card titles (this is an FFG request).

d10-3 Private communication will be by geekmail between me and particular players, all other communication will be by posting in this thread. Start your geekmail subject line with "BSG 561 - " and your character name.

d10-4 Send me COs whenever possible. COs are only valid when sent through geekmail (COs on the forum thread will be ignored).

d10-5 Please use the following posting conventions:
* Normal text for discussion.
* Italics for flavor text.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread or I receive them in geekmail. Once something is bolded, I will treat it as final.

If you're unsure about your action, or have a rules question, please don't bold the decision until you're certain. I'm happy to answer queries about rule interactions and so forth.

If using a smart phone or other digital device that makes the above difficult, then please start with the line:

Bold: Name

d10-6 Make clear in each post who your character is by posting a banner or other character image at the top of your post. Great banners are available here (use the "medium" option to display them). If you find using a banner is too much of a hassle (or you are on your phone), at least list your character name at the top of your post. Other pictures for adding flavor can be found in this compilation.

d10-7 Respect the secrecy rules
Some often overlooked secrecy violations include:
* Saying "medium" if you only played one card.
* Talking about scouted cards beyond good or bad.
* Identifying what cards (or even what colors) you played into a skill check.
* Volunteering what cards are in your hand unless it is relevant to the situation.

d10-8 Despite my best intentions, I will probably make mistakes and miss things. If you see something that looks wrong let me know.

d10-9 Most important of all, have fun!


============================================================

Standing Assumptions for Interrupts:

Pass on any you don't have, but don't tell the thread until almost finished to hide the fact you haven't got it.

Strategic Planning:
- Pass on Launch Scout if there are 2 or more Raptors.
- Pass on Cylon Attacks, Actions, etc.
- Pass on Viper Attacks vs Raiders & Basestars

Evasive Maneuver:
Pass on EVERY use unless:
- YOU are in the viper being hit
- the viper is shielding a civilian from IMMEDIATE attack
- a viper is about to be destroyed (not damaged)

Declare Emergency:
- Pass if you are the Target of Admiral's Quarters or Airlock
- Pass if you played skill cards against the check

Multiple offers may mean that current player will decide which one to use.

Or better: Get those Standing CO's in!

If you have an interrupt-style character ability, then you must put in a CO to use your ability when appropriate. For example, I will not ask if Starbuck wants to use Secret Destiny on every crisis card that is played, but she may put in a CO to pause to let her decide when a crisis card meets certain criteria.

============================================================

Tanking skill checks:

When calling for interrupts on a skill check, you may also respond with "TANK" instead of pass. "TANK" means:

- I pass on playing interrupts
AND
- I want to pass on playing into the check if everyone else also tanks

Note that if you want, you can give me a private CO to play into a check even if you publicly state "TANK". If you do so and everyone else tanks, I'll stop the skill check right after you've played into the check and we'll continue manually from there.

Still waiting on our fifth, but let's see if we can get a start on character selection in the meantime.

Rolling for player order, highest first:

ThirdWizard - 1d100 = (13) = 13
awp832 - 1d100 = (50) = 50
manutd03 - 1d100 = (72) = 72
Caimion - 1d100 = (63) = 63
player5 - 1d100 = (81) = 81

Geekroller says no ...

So the player order will be:

1. drnlmza
2. manutd03
3. Caimion
4. awp832
5. ThirdWizard

Feel free to geekmail COs for character selection if you already know who you'd like to choose.

If you do, please let me know also if you know what cards you'd like to start with. You may of course wait until you receive your starting loyalty.

If you're more used to playing with all expansions, you may wish to check out this helpful post from kingerc, clarifying what (not) to expect when playing without Pegasus ...

It's been a while since I've played a military leader, and I'm first, so:

Gaius Baltar here. Happy to be aboard. Um, much happier than still being on Caprica, of course!

Just double checking, is that base game (political) Baltar (as I'm guessing from your flavour text) or Daybreak (support) Baltar?

Caimion is next to choose. You can choose either a Pilot or Support. (Or possibly Political, depending on manutd03's response.)

Which makes our title holders Admiral Helo and President Baltar.

Congratulations on your unexpected assumption of power, and commiserations on the circumstances.

You should all have received a first hand update, without any cards other than your loyalty. Let me know if you did not receive this.

Still need starting draws from Baltar, Apollo and Gaeta, and starting sector for Apollo please.
