So doing a PBF to test out a utility I'm working on for this precise purpose. For the sake of easing load all Heroes must be Cauldron, but other than that may be picked freely.

Hydra Tiamat, couldn't find the banner for the variant so using the normal one.

In Northspar.

Those towards top of wait list, people with no games, or moderators will be prioritized. Might not actually start for a couple days as I poke around with the utility, but wanted player list now. Feel free to choose any promo you wish.

Re: PBF #88, A Nasty Head Cold (Cauldron)
Oh man, I love Northspar. I don't want to flood myself, but given that #84 hasn't really started up yet (I'm in that and also running #85) and I'm more familiar with Cauldron now, I'd be totally up for an all-Cauldron (Auldron?) game!

Just, y'know, low on the priority list. If I get in, I'd like to play Echelon!

Already in a game, but I love me some Cauldron! I'll take a spot if one is available to me.

Re: PBF #88, A Nasty Head Cold (Cauldron)
Okay, I have the utility pretty much fully functional. Lacks Character Cards and Card Images for most people, but that's the easy part now that framework is down. Thanks in large part to Tosx's spreadsheet being easily repurposed as the necessary data for the program. Got a bit carried away with testing out some of the cards because it was my first time actually using Cauldron. Long story short everything is in working order to select players for the game in about eight hours once I have gotten some sleep. Will put up the actual utility for others to use once I've got all the images loaded and in (probably about a week or so from now). Could theoretically be adapted for normal Sentinels but that's a bit close to piracy for me to feel at ease doing those cards (also Nightmist would be a really massive headache, but that's beside the point).

Re: PBF #88, A Nasty Head Cold (Cauldron)
Okay, over 12 hours since last app and more than a day since thread start, so all four of you are in. Free choice of any Cauldron Hero, only going to roll for pick priority if it's necessary. If someone else pops in before the first turn willing to let them in, but would like to get this moving. Other than that only issue likely to come up is that I can't find Banners for most Cauldron heroes, so may have to improvise there. Good luck to all of you.

Just to give due credit, all of the official card data in that sheet was copied from the spoiler sheet made by folks on the GTG forums.

I assume you are using catwhowalksbyhimself's banners; either way you might message him in case he has the rest of them lying around somewhere.

So far have only used the Cauldron Text Spoiler, which I was able to convert to card data the way Lackey wanted it by simply moving a couple columns around and saving as a txt file. Still have to index card images and add character cards, but that sheet meant most of the work was done from start.

Re: PBF #88, A Nasty Head Cold (Cauldron)
ohhh Lackey, bring back memories. Why not Vassal? It already has an SotM module that you can just extend by creating new decks and uploading the images. Anyway, cool job you made that work!

I'm up for any 1929 promo, prolly Tango One, Necro or Stranger. If people want to do a team like full MSS or 1929, I'm in too.

Re: PBF #88, A Nasty Head Cold (Cauldron)
Didn't occur to me Vassal might have a Sentinels plugin, I think of it as more for board games. Might poke at that later once the Lackey one is done. Slightly dissatisfied because I don't think I can get it to work for actual online multiplayer without some shenanigans due to needing villain and environment to have own deck and trash, but it works perfectly for offline play.

Re: PBF #88, A Nasty Head Cold (Cauldron)
A 1929 team would be awesome, fighting Tiamat on Northspar in 1929, That would be cool.

I would take any of the 1929 characters, and will probably pick one even if we don't do a 1929 team.

Necro, Echelon and The Knight are Tiamat nemesis, so we could get all three of them in on the fight as well.

I'm fine if we go with theme. It's been a while since I've played Baccarat, so I'd be good trying out his 1929 promo.

I called Echelon earlier, but if we really want theme, I'd be happy to play 1929 Tango One or Vanish.

1929 Necro looks to be an awkward choice against Tiamat "I kill all your low HP minions", but let's go with that.

Up to you, kinda sad we didn't get a 1929 Echelon promo in the same vein as Baccarat really.

Hydra Tiamat though, so a well timed abomination can be really valuable.

Esther Martin (echelon) is only 70, so she wouldn't be born yet in 1929, But it would be cool to have her mother as an inter-war period operative. Early Alfred Hitchcock style.

Re: PBF #88, A Nasty Head Cold (Cauldron)
Tiamat

Start: Nothing
Play: Acid Breath, since there are no ongoing or equipment in play One head of player's choice deals all heroes 4 damage +1 to either The Knight, Echelon, or Necro due to nemesis bonus
End: Eye of the Storm deals each hero target one damage, Echelon takes an additional 1 due to nemesis
Mouth of the Inferno deals the hero with the highest hp 2 damage (the Knight or maybe Echelon if Mouth of the Inferno also did the acid breath)
Maw of Winter forces one player to discard one card

I've got a duplicate card I could discard if no one else has anything.

Would Knight be okay with the nemesis damage from Inferno on that card play?

Okay, that leaves you and Echelon tied for highest when Inferno hits with its EoT. Who takes that damage? Assuming Echelon since it's one more if it hits Knight but best to double check. From there we just need a discard and it's on to Necro's turn.

For reference spread of HP after everything but Inferno is Necro 20, Knight 21, Echelon 21, Baccarat 19. Will do full status post in morning.
