BSG 567 - Gridiron
A tough as nails game for tough as nails people.

Welcome to the 567th Play-by-forum Battlestar Galactica game titled Gridiron! This will be a six player game using the Pegasus expansion with New Caprica as the desination. As it is a six player game, there will be a cylon leader tagging along for this flight or a sympathizer. It will be up to the players to decide during character selection. Everyone seems to love cylon leaders though so I suspect that is what will happen. I have previously modded games 389, 413, 482, and 515 which all ended in a cylon victory and games 436 and 437 which both ended in human victory. With a record of 4-2, the cylons have taken a convincing lead. But will they hold it?

This game is by invite only. The waiting list is being maintained at the BSG PBF Wiki.

Thanks to ColtsFan76 who kicked things off way-back-when and to Orphius, Jasperhawk, and Mawkee who ultimately created and maintain the tools I will be using to mod this game. Special mention to Mawkee whose is still currently making modifications to these very same tools. At least I still think he is. Might not be anything left to do.

Rules

d10-1 In order to participate, you must own a copy of game. This is a requirement by FFG.

d10-2 Use normal text for any discussions. Please Bold any moves, actions, and decisions you are going to take. I will process nothing unless it is bolded. Use Italics for in-character/flavor talk. In-character talk is heavily encouraged and makes the game much more entertaining.

d10-3 Private communication will be done via geekmail between me and other individuals. All other communication should be public in the thread. There should be no private messaging between players. If you have a question, go ahead and send me a geekmail. Messages to me should have a subject line of BSG 567 (Character Name).

d10-4 As this is a PBF, all information is recorded. In the spirit of the game, I will request that no one look back more than one player turn if you need to refresh your memory. Please do not copy and paste skill check results.

d10-5 Use the banners for your character when posting. This helps players keep track of who is who! Banners and any images you wish to use are located here: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/item/1834905#item1834905. Many thanks to Gerryrailbaron. If you are posting on your phone, beginning your post with mobile (character name) is appreciated.

d10-6 Please subscribe to this thread, and try to check in at least once a day. The subscribe button is located near the top of the page. If you are going to be absent for an extended period, please post in the thread or let me know so I can react accordingly.

d10-7 The use of conditional orders (CO) is heavily encouraged as it speeds the game up. If you wish to send me a CO, please start your subject line with BSG 567 (Character Name). Public CO's are not allowed. Tanking will be allowed this game. I'm still skeptical about it, but it didn't seem to ruin anything in 515. In addition, I will assume the following standing CO's from all players at the beginning of the game:

Pass on all interrupts I don't have in my hand.
Pass on Declare Emergency
Pass on Strategic Planning
* on Launch Scout unless there is only one raptor remaining.
* on attacks by vipers or attacks by cylon ships.
Pass on Evasive Maneuvers unless it is the last ship protecting a civilian or a manned Viper.
Pass on all OPGs.

You have a right to change any of these CO's if you wish, but you'll need to let me know via geekmail. I will also shoot out a reminder to everyone at sleeper to update your COs in case a change of loyalty occurs.

d10-8 Follow the secrecy rules. Some often overlooked secrecy violations include:

* Saying "medium" if you've only played one card
* Talking about scouted cards (top or buried) beyond "good" or "bad"
* Identifying which cards/colors you played into a skill check
* Volunteering the contents of your hand if it's not directly relevant to the current discussion

That all being said, I am still human and will make mistakes. Please be forgiving, as I will try to correct them as soon as I see them.

I just remembered that I'm going to be away for a week at the end of November. If that disqualifies me, I completely understand but I'm still keen to take part and work towards having a substitute for that week...

I'm willing to play, but I don't have a strong preference for New Caprica. So if you're short of players, I'm in; otherwise I'll opt out

And thanks for opening this game :-)

I remember one game to New Caprica with house-ruled Agendas (no Join the Colonials) where I ended up completing the secondary requirements for every Agenda actually in the pool for the game (and failing Join the Colonials).

Anyway, I'm in though I'm happy to yield my spot to anyone ahead of me.

rmsgrey, you are up to select a character first. You can choose from the following: Military Leader, Politican, Pilot, or Cylon Leader. The rest of the crew is free to send me any COs for their selections as well.

As a standard house rule, if anyone selects Cain then Blind Jump will select the first unscouted destination from the destination deck. Unless the entire crew prefers her to remain unaltered. And as a reminder, if no cylon leader is selected we will have a sympathizer on board. If you have not already, now is also a good time to subscribe to this thread.

I'll make and exception only this once and allow you to choose Support. But I don't want to hear any grief from any of you this game about the cy-die or the crisis deck of death.

Yes. I forgot about support characters.

I'd prefer our game to have a cylon leader over a sympathizer. It doesn't have to be me, but I'll probably pick it if no one else does - I'm not fussed if someone else want to play one though.

I wouldn't mind playing a Cylon Leader if it's still available when my turn comes around.

I'll pass on CL, if someone else wants to play that role. I'll go either Military or Pilot, depending on what rmsgrey picks

Just to make sure I'm thinking right, we're only picking characters from the core and Pegasus sets, correct?

That is correct Blark. Characters from the base game and Pegasus expansion only.

So, let's see if I can still remember how to do this:

Random character selector: 1custom14{Roslin;Baltar;Zarek;Ellen;Cain;Adama;Tigh;Helo;Apollo;Starbuck;Kat;Boomer;Chief;Dee} -> ( Chief) -> ( Chief)



Chief Tyrol reporting for duty.

By CO, mdmcclel selects Adama.

Keisus, you are up to select next and you can choose anything but a military leader.
