Well, hot-cha, it's time for me to start up one of these here peanut butter fudge games! Buckle your pants, because we're about to show all those damage hoses how a real, smart hero gets things done! Our cast of characters so far...

Who better to lead a pack of smarty-pantses than the guy whose name says it all? America's Cleverest Legacy!



She's as good with a bow as she is seeing the flaws in things. She may be an overly-critical nerd, but we love her anyway! Parse!



Next, she's smart, she's fast, but is she smarter than she is fast? It's The Super-Scientific Tachyon!



(I guess she doesn't have her own banner...)

Remember, kids, if you get really smart, your brain will get huge and you'll develop psychic powers. Just ask The Visionary!



And last but not least, she's smart, she's rich, she's beautiful, and can kick your nerd butt to the moon! How is she sing-- Ooh, oh, ouch, hmm, yeah, sorry. :/ It's The Wraith.



Lastly, a challenge worthy for a team of super-smart smarties: The mystery and allure of Miss Information!



Here's how things will go. As this is a themed battle, Legacy and Tachyon are variant-locked. Parse, Visionary and Wraith may pick any official variant or stick with the original. As something of a consolation, the players can vote on the environment. However, at the moment, I do not have Wrath of the Cosmos or Shattered Timelines, which means Dok'thorath Capital, Enclave of the Endlings, The Block and Time Cataclysm are all out. Anything else up through Villains is good, though. (I might suggest Omnitron-IV, since, being both a robot and a sentient planet, it is very smart.)

There will be a 24-hour window for people to sign up, which will end at 10 AM EST Thursday. Priority status will be given to folks on the waiting list (who I will message), new players, players not already in a game, and everyone else, in that order. Once we have five players, they will choose heroes and vote on environment, advanced and/or challenge, though I don't recommend either of the latter, Miss Info is hard enough in my estimation. :V Happy Sentinels!

Sure, I'm in for this one! Knocks me right off the waitlist.

Edit: In case you're taking preferences, Super Scientific Tachyon is always fun (who would guess, given my avatar? ), but I'm good with playing anyone but Visionary.

Omnitron-IV sounds fun, as does the suggestion below for Freedom Tower.

Re: PBF #82: Smartypants Only Time, Miss
I'd like to apply. This would be my first PBF.

(I'm not sure if it's time yet to say this, but I'd prefer playing Fugue State Parse)

Just an idea: Freedom Tower might be less themed but more thematic as Ms. Twain works there.

Can you reach out to the people on the waitlist (not in games first) to see if they have an interest?

He did. That's how I was made aware of the PBF.

Re: PBF #82: Smartypants Only Time, Miss
I have, and they've all replied, which is to say those who are interested are here!

I'm sticking to that 24 hours thing, but unless any other news players show up, I do believe we have our five.

Great. If the moderator or everyone who gets in could remove themselves from the list.
I 'm just trying to mention the waiting list every time a game starts so people start using it.

Turn order for the characters is fixed (they ended up being alphabetical entirely by accident, but that works perfectly for this game!), but players' character selection order will be:

cosined: 1d100 = (95) = 95
Radulla: 1d100 = (8) = 8
scizor: 1d100 = (48) = 48
bobbert: 1d100 = (50) = 50
wallwaster: 1d100 = (49) = 49

Please post, choosing your character, variant (if you picked Parse, Visionary or Wraith), environment (current consensus leans toward either Freedom Tower or Omnitron-IV, but you need not be constrained by those choices), and whether you want Miss Information to be advanced, challenge, both or neither. Remember, votes against things count! ("I want challenge, but not advanced.")

For a quick reminder, Miss Information's Advanced rules are:

Quote:
Front: Increase damage dealt to hero targets by 1.
Back: Reduce damage dealt to Miss Information by 2.


And her Challenge rule is:

Quote:
Whenever a Clue card enters play, play the top card of the villain deck.


Once everything is in order, I'll set up the game, and just so we're clear, I've got all the decks physical on my end. I'll even post a picture! :B

Re: PBF #82: Smartypants Only Time, Miss
Since I'm third in order my priorities are:
Fugue State Parse, if not her, then Dark Visionary, if not her, then Super-Scientific Tachyon.

My environment vote is for Freedom Tower. If it's not that, then pretty much anything is fine by me.

I'd like to play either challenge or advanced, but not both.

Re: PBF #82: Smartypants Only Time, Miss
Man, that was quite the battle for second place by the d100s.

I'll put my preference down for one of the two variant-locked heroes (Super Scientific Tachyon, America's Cleverest Legacy). So, if cosined wants one, I'll take the other. Otherwise, Tachyon's gotta go fast.

Environment: Omnitron-IV, just to see what mad science has wrought this time.

I agree with wallwaster, that we play either advanced or challenge mode, but not both. Someone at the GTG booth at PAX once described Miss Information as the Antichrist, and I agree with that sentiment; let's not break our keyboards over her.

Re: PBF #82: Smartypants Only Time, Miss
I like all the characters, so I will defer choosing and take whatever is left at the end.

Freedom Tower, 'cuz theme.

Challenge, since it hasn't been tried in the Forums.

-edit- Oooops, thought I was second to pick; didn't check the numbers. In that case... I will take whatever is left at the end

Re: PBF #82: Smartypants Only Time, Miss
Well, looks like the top three have been decided (since cosined was first pick and the rest of us fall in line shortly afterward)

cosined: Parse
bobbert: Super Scientific Tachyon
wallwaster: Dark Visionary
scizor: <To Pick between ACL and Wraith>
radulla: <To claim the remainder>

Seem about right? (Sorry if I'm doing your job, TW. )

Assumed I was last, actually!

Whats Fugue State Parse's Power/Incap? I can't find it.
Found it on the wiki. I'll stick with the original Parse.

I'll take the Legacy.
I Vote for either challenge or advanced. Not both (please no).
I think Freedom tower will be sweet.

I appreciate it! I was once again too busy playing Sentinels to play Sentinels. :V

It looks like we will be playing on challenge mode (admittedly, I'd have voted for that, it sounds like it'll get Clues out faster!) and in Freedom Tower.

I will shuffle decks and get hands PMed out. Radulla still needs to pick a variant for Wraith! Once that happens, I'll lay out the starting board and we can get playing.

For the record, I generally check the forums twice a day except Saturdays (except this coming Saturday...) so you can expect decently prompt responses. Of course, you can probably also expect a slow game because Miss I has a lot of "player vote" cards...

Re: PBF #82: Smartypants Only Time, Miss
We can begin!

Start of Game:


(The table is in a particularly cluttered portion of my house, where no one will need to get things for a while...)

Cards are revealed from the top of the villain deck until 1 Diversion is revealed, and it is put into play...

Villain Effects:
Increase damage dealt by Miss Information to Parse by 1. (Nemesis)
Whenever a Clue card enters play, play the top card of the villain deck. (Challenge)
Start: If there are 4 or more Clue cards in play, flip Miss Information's villain character card.
End: Destroy X hero ongoing or equipment cards, where X = the number of diversion cards in play. (Currently, X = 1)
"Old Lady" in the Street deals the 3 hero targets with the lowest HP 2 cold damage each.

Hero Effects:
Increase damage dealt by Parse to Miss Information by 1. (Nemesis)

Environment Effects:

Miss Information

Demure Office Worker
Villain
Challenge Mode

Deck: 24
Trash: 0
In Play: 1

Re: PBF #82: Smartypants Only Time, Miss


Start: Miss Information does not flip.

Play: Missing Resources
Reveal the top card of 1 hero deck. Each player discards every card which shares the revealed card's keywords. Discard the revealed card.

We're off to a great start! Whose deck shall have a card revealed?

Tachyon's deck has more one-shots, right? That might be a bit better to discard than ongoings and equipment in early game.

Shouldn't we check which types of cards people are holding? If there are very few equipment, I'd say we pick wraith. Otherwise Tachyon

Faced with this same situation in the past, I decided on Tachyon... that would be my vote, again. But of course, the majority rules...
